Justice League #7
Summary: In this issue we saw The Justice League ban together to take down a guy who transformed into a monster and uses little spore monsters to do his bidding or something. Colonel Steve Trevor and his team, A.R.G.U.S. try to take down the spores but basically held them off for the Justice League who came in and finished the job. Afterwards we saw a press conference where people asked why the Justice League don't just replace congress because they always save the world and are a good team. (What?) Anyway, from there we see Steve get questioned by his superiors about The League and Steve's relationship with Wonder Woman, but he basically says the people want the League to take Congress' job and maybe they should, so congress lays off. (What?!) After that we see a Video Chat with Steve and Wonder Woman that's interrupted by Cyborg, Batman, Green Lantern and The Flash who all say something to Steve, basically Tell Cyborg's dad not to try to hack communications, Batman says shut down the JLI (WHAT?! HE'S IN THE... okay...), Green Lantern asking for more food for the Watchtower, and Saint Barry being Saint Barry. After all of that, Wonder Woman asks Steve how he's doing, he says fine, she says good, and the chat ends. (WHAT?!?!?!?!?!) Then Steve tells his new secretary he loves Wonder Woman and told her so, so I guess she turned him down. The issue ends with the guy who wrote the book that documented what heroes the Justice League were in the last issue, writing a new book about how they're menaces and how Steve Trevor is the key to taking them down. WHAT?!
Thoughts: I'm done with this book. The last book took place five years ago, and before it debuted we were told we'd see a new team when the new arc started, yet, same team. Also, Geoff Johns still feels the need to give EVERY CHARACTER a line when all of them are on the page, so we get a bunch of panels with people saying one or two lines for no reason. Add that in with the fact the baddie of this issue was taken down off-camera for some stupid reason, and the fact that we're about to have an arc revolving around Steve Trevor, and you've got a recipe for a stupid book. If there was anything good about this, it's Jim Lee's art and that's about it. I really wanna drop this book but I'm tempted to keep it just so I can review this with Brightest Day rules... I'll let the comments section decide. Until next time, I'm Jason Todd, signing off.
Score: 1 out of 10.
