Batman Assembles The JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA: REBIRTH #1

This New Comic Book Day welcome back one of DC’s premiere superhero teams!

A new dawn is rising on the Justice League of America. Spinning out of the events chronicled in Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad comes a team under the Justice League banner unlike any other. Don’t think so? Try these names on for size: Batman (makes sense), Black Canary (okay, been on the team before, sure), Killer Frost (what?), the Ray, (What?), Vixen (phew), the Atom (now you’re talking), and…Lobo?!?!?! You thought Lex Luthor put a few wrinkles into the team dynamic during the New 52, see what happens when the Main Man has to play nice with others. Who’s causing all this? Apparently, Batman. What’s he thinking? Find out in this issue as the Dark Knight assembles what DC is proclaiming to be the roughest and toughest Justice League of all-time.

After the events of Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad and four one-shots in January bringing you up to speed on the Atom, the Ray, Vixen, and Killer Frost, Steve Orlando (Midnighter & Apollo) and Ivan Reis (Justice League, Aquaman, Green Lantern) set the stage for this sensational roster. What does the future for this team hold? I have no idea but it’s likely to be anything but boring.

If you’ve been waiting for the next big thing when it comes to DC’s team books, you might have just found it. And you’ll find it on the shelves at Forbidden Planet for just $2.99 this Wednesday. Justice For All! But seriously, Lobo?!?!?

By Devin T. Quin

American boys all go through a Superman phase, tying towels around their necks and leaping from tall things unto smaller things, often the ground. The fascination with being Superman is actually about self-improvement. The world is a big place, full of opportunity, where young gentlemen will want to prove themselves amongst their peers. They desire to be “the best.”

These young boys will then go to a pre-school or 1st grade and attempt to play superheroes out on the playground, an environment far removed from the safety of their kitchens and supportive parents.

Suddenly, only the loudest, pushiest and biggest kids get to be Superman, and all other kids at recess have to pick other superheroes to be. Some of these kids will recognize the inherent contradiction. “Superman is supposed to be nice and kind and think of helping others first, but Scotty Hascalwitz got to be Superman because he pushed around all us other kids until we gave in. WTF?” Continue reading
