As a huge Superman fan, you have to choose your battles wisely. A lot of people get let down, while others tend to see things in a more lenient, but different light. The cover of this comic is no exception. When I saw those funky farm boots and Oliver-Twist-Style-pants, I knew I was going to be pretty disappointed with the Superman reboot. As a fan of Superman: Earth One, I always wished they would just start over with that story.
To my surprise, this wasn’t about Superman at all. This is actually just a DC freebie to show off their new art and stories. The previews were excellent and they intrigue me more and more every time I read them.
They gave great promotional images with brief descriptions for Justice League, Justice League International (Booster Gold is the leader?), Aquaman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, The Fury of Firestorm, Captain Atom, Green Arrow, The Savage Hawkman, DC Universe Presents, Mister Terrific, Action Comics(This is where Superman will make his debut), Superman, Supergirl, Superboy, Batman, Detective Comics, Batwoman, Batman: The Dark Knight, Batman and Robin, Batwing, Batgirl, Nightwing, Catwoman, Birds Of Prey, Red Hood and The Outlaws, Green Lantern(Sinestro is on the cover), Green Lantern Corps, Green Lantern: New Guardians, Red Lanterns, Justice League Dark, Swamp Thing, Animal Man, Frankenstein Agent of S.H.A.D.E., I, Vampire, Resurrection Man, Demon Knights, Stormwatch,Voodoo, Grifter, Suicide Squad, DeathStroke, All-Star Western, O.M.A.C., Blackhawks, Men Of War, Teen Titans, Static Shock, Hawk and Dove, Blue Beetle, Legion Lost, and Legion of Superheroes. WOO! What a list!
It starts out with Gotham PD chasing after Batman who is chasing some bandaged and ugly green monster. Batman gets the upper hand and shoots his grapple hook through the monster’s leg and they are both taken down by a massive, red explosion. After some hand to hand combat an intensely strong green light blinds the battling opponents.
Batman- “And you’re too damned bright. Turn down the light before they see us.”
Green Lantern- “Before who sees us?”
Gotham PD- “PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE AIR!”
I personally believe this is how the Justice League will get started. Once Bruce and Hal are together, they’ll have the power and the resources to find all of the other heroes that are necessary in completing the team. Some characters will just be known and myths while others are known as vigilantes, but together they’ll be known as heroes.
And for the Hal Jordan fans-It was so hard for me to find a solid picture of Hal in his “New 52” costume. If you guys are having the same problem, let me help you out!
