Justice League of America #1


Written and Drawn by Bryan Hitch

Jun 29, 2015 Web Exclusive Bookmark and Share

The world is about to end, and Armageddon is precipitated by Superman’s impending death in DC’s newest Justice League of America series. Written and illustrated by Bryan Hitch, the arc reunites Batman, Cyborg, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, and Superman against the apocalypse.

Superman is invited to a mysterious corporation in New York, where two well-meaning but enigmatic scientists inform him that they’ve been intercepting Superman corpses from across the multiverse. From what they can determine, Superman’s death will foretell the end of Earth. Their solutionwhat they’ve brought him there to convince him to dois that he must lie low and stop his vigilante escapades, thereby escaping death and forestalling the end of everything. Naturally, this is unacceptable, so Superman and the other members of the League must figure out what looming catastrophe they face and how they can avert it.

As of the first issue alone, there’s nothing shockingly new intrinsic to the latest Justice League saga. The septet of heroes unites against a common, universe-wide cause. They’re a bit more gullible than one would expect of such a veteran group of superheroes (they almost all respond to a mysterious invitation to what obviously winds up being a trap), making for some easy storylines. But, at the end of the day, they’re still the Justice League. Justice League of America #1 isn’t the best title featuring the omnipotent group yet, but it has the potential to pit them against some major hurdles, and for fans of the team, the adventure is just beginning.
