I might not understand some of Alex Ross' ecentricities, but the man has talent.

I wish I hadn't missed most of this series.

When will this get a trade?

Hey, the mechanical worms that Superman saw inside Batman are they the same as the ones Luthor used on Shazam in Kingdom Come?

I think so. Consider this: Luthor groups Bizarro, Metallo, Parasite, and Solomon Grundy to take out Superman. All of them are beaten by Captain Marvel. Years and years later in the Ross-verse, who do you think Luthor would pick to take out Superman.

Sorry for being so late.

#6 REVIEW:
Captain Marvel escorts Superman to the sun and throws him in to burn the worms in his body. While Ray Palmer’s life is on the line with an attack by Gigantia, everyone around the world is losing faith in their heroes and moving their truth toward the villains. But the tide starts turning as a twist is revealed by both Hawkman and Hawkgirl and hope is in sights for the League even with The Metal Men in the game.

Issue 6: Throughout the whole series, the art, storyline remains so great that I don’t see anything wrong that is or might appear in this series. That’s how good it is.

It is now confirmed that the woman that tried to kill The Atom is Gigantia. I thought it was because a red headed woman connected to the Legion would have to be her and her only. She tries again while Ray is in the hospital but failure is still on her side. But this is one question I have: in the mainstream comics and even in shows like JLU, Gigantia is a beautiful woman normal sized or large and in charge. I don’t know if it was because she was growing but when she grew in this issue, she looked nasty. I hope it was because she was growing (she was changing size during the scene so maybe) otherwise not only will this idea in Justice be so different from the main comic books, but I don’t know if I’ll stand looking at her when she’s big. So here’s for hope.

“Cheers”

It was great seeing a replica of Coast City from the Lantern ring as Hal goes back and wonders why he was chosen to wear the ring and why he was given a power to be like a god. This is coming from the fact that he is in a place where there is no way out and his ring is losing power. The replica and his scenes makes me wonder if he is the only one who can end the whole storyline. Sometimes you can tell if the person that is in a lesser situation (or a big situation but nothing else going on in it) may have something to do with the finale of the comic series.

We have some developments here: Wonder Woman came into the Batcave and saved Batman from the control of Ivy and has subdued her. With Batman’s brain and the only top member of the Legion in their custody, they are sure to get answers from her and the plans for whats next. Superman, after going thru the sun, has gotten all the worms off his body and is back fully powered (since the sun gives him and charges up his powers). Red Tornado’s remains were found by The Metal Men so their introduction has lead them into the series. And finally, we have a twist: Hawkman and Hawkgirl have found out that Toyman’s warehouse is a factory building lots and lots of Brainiacs. Now that’s something that will be explored in the series’ last six issues.

Overall with Issue 6, the series’ first half is over and now its time to start the second half. What has happened and what has been revealed has led me to get excited for the next issues to conclude the series. I wish it wasn’t bi-monthly, I REALLY wish it wasn’t.

REVIEW: 8/10

It seems Justice has had some delays with keeping on schedule. I'm not suprised by that at all.

All I can say after reading issue 7 is Alex Ross out did himself with the fortress. That was some great art there better then Lee's 6 page spread of the Batcave.

That was a dream sent to all the villains orchestrated by Grodd.

Actually, those are Braithwaite's pencils. But, yeah, Ross's painting is top notch.

I really would've enjoyed seeing the Wally (or was it Roy?) and Dick vs Grundy fight "on screen". But, all in all it was a great issue. It's pretty much the best comic with Hawkman on the cover -- ever.

JUSTICE #7

REVIEW:
Martian Manhunter & Zatanna find Aquaman and take him to the Doom Patrol for medical reasons. Grodd and Brainiac sent their agents to attack more heroes as Wonder Woman & Batman reach the Fortress of Solitude. After Captain Marvel and Superman free The Flash from his speeding trouble, they return to the Fortress where most of the JLA are and enter...

I don't know how many times to say this but again: the art is great and fits this storyline.

With half, or maybe most, of the JLA together again, we can see the finale starting to come. Hawkgirl is right when she says there is a conspiracy. There is three. The big one is who gave the villians the nightmares to begin with, what are the plans the villians have for the humans and what is Brainiac's and Luthor's plan against one another.

One of the highlights is that we're introduced to Alex Ross' Fortress of Solitude. While it did appear in Kingdom Come, we didn't see much more than what we saw. We have seen Alex Ross' Batcaves (since there are four versions of them) but the Fortress in detail. The Fortress seen in JUSTICE is from the Silver Age, just like the Fortress in All Star Superman. Another similarity between them is the interior, JUSTICE's Fortress has the dinosaur and the actual size Titanic replica that the All Star one also has. The only difference is that there are no "moden day touch ups" in the JUSTICE one than the All Star one. The key is still the huge one pointing straight to the Fortress' door (something Batman jokes at). On the design, the Fortress' design in JUSTICE is the one seen in Action Comics #241. You may also remember it from both Whatever happened to the Man of Tomoorow and the end of Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Overall, this was another nice issue. With the plot moving forward and five more issues to go, and new places like the Fortress and more characters entering the scene like the Doom Patrol, Dick Grayson (aka Robin), Freddy Freeman & Mary Batson (Captain Marvel Jr. & Mary Marvel), the first steps toward the finale has been taken.

RATING: 8/10

I really liked this issue. The JLA is regrouping from the attacks and the pacing is picking up. As it has been for the previous issues, the art was magnificent and really helped to push the story. Great read.

I'm out of the loop on Justice; my store didn't order it in for some strange, strange reason. Why did Superman punch Batman?

That scene, which I believed is in issue 4, is because Superman realized Grodd was controlling Batman and he had the kryptonite in his hand. So he knocked him out.
