JUSTICE #9

Writer-Jim Krueger and Alex Ross
Art-Doug Braithwaite and Alex Ross
Letterer-Todd Klein
Cover Art-Alex Ross
Editor-Joey Cavalieri

PLOT:
The breathaking miniseries by Alex Ross, Jim Krueger and Alex Ross continues with plenty of surprises! Black Adam! The Marvel Family! And the Justice League's plan to storm their adversaries' stronghold!

REVIEW:
Hal Jordan realizes why he was sent away by the villians was because they feared his ring. Doctor Mangus concludes that Brainiac's machines can go through anything to control their hosts and says that the JLA needs battle armor to protect them, which the Metal Men will create. With the exception of Flash, the JLA Strike Force go to Africa to fight Grodd while Captain Marvel fights Black Adam and the controlled Mary Marvel and Captain Marvel Jr. Clark & Bruce are in Gotham, right where the Waynes were killed, to meet Dr. Leslie Thompkins. Clark x-rays a kid to see the real truth behinf the "cure" and that its nothign but control over the people. Luthor checks out his army of Brainaics. At the Fortress, Atom and Magnus, with the help of Batman, create the armors. Grodd escapes but its a failure for the League as they have Grodd's ring, made by Sinestro. Captain Marvel ends up in Brainiac's control from his amchines and fights Superman. With Hal's help, he is back to normal. Marvel and Hal go visit Arkham and meet Marvel's greatest enemy; Sivana. Whose mind was stolen by Brianiac to create his machines based on his "Mr. Mind" weapon. Its revealed that Brainiac send those nightmares to all the villians in order for Luthor to split the world from humans and aliens. The JLA is outfitted with battle armor (which was a great shot) and heads out to fight. Luthor sneaks to the Fortress to get Captain Cold, stating everything is still going good.

With this issue, the final issues and in turn the climax between the heroes and villians is finally kicked into gear. The art, again, was good. One of the greatest shots from this issue was the two page spread of the JLA and their battle armors. That looked cool. Batman's armor is more of a precusor to his armor seen in Kingdom Come and for fan's sake, the symbol is the one from the '66 Batmobile and in turn the logo for The Batman animayed show on Kids WB. Since we don't have Steel, Superman's armor is based on him. Wonder Woman's is a cross between her suit, just the body armor parts of her golden eagle armor complete with the helmet, and the overall color scheme reminds me of her costume from Elseworld's Finest: Supergirl & Batgirl. Hawkman (and Hawkgirl)'s armor are of Hawkman's change in Kingdom Come and Aquaman's armor is based on The Creature from Black Lagoon. I won't list all of them but trust me, it was a great shot.

So we are revealed the person behind the nightmares that started the series. I surprised it was Brainiac as I thought it was Dr. Destiny or something. I just realized the last shot of #8 was the city spheres and not what I thought at the time which was maybe the introduction to a new villian appearing like maybe Darkseid. Since Luthor has his own agenda and Brainiac his own, I know for a fact that this will lead to JLA vs. Luthor vs. Brainiac. As those are the main players.

Overall, this was a fantastic issue. The climax is finally in gear and this issue's spread of the battle armored JLA took my breath away. Recently as of this review, I was told that Justice is a modern day Challenge of the Sueprfriends. And I like to point out, in case I forget for my review for the upcomign #12, that it is. We still have three more to come of this series but its already proven to be what I was told it was. So I agree witht hat statement.

RATING: 8.5/10

What's in store for next issue: Green Arrow is the main focus. Featuring the Doom Patrol, Metal Men, the Titans, Supergirl and others.

NOTE: If aksed, I can do a scan of the JLA in their battle armors. But only if you want it.

I actually saw three inspirations in Batman's battle armor: 1) Kingdom Come, the Batsuit he wears or will wear later. 2) The '66 Batmobile like the symbol and in part the design from the car. & 3) The Bat-Knights (bat robots in Kingdom Come) since those robots were based on the '50s Batmobiles.

BTW, here is the JLA Battle Armor scene:

Just read it, pretty good. Stuff is finally happening, and man that page with Supes and Billy was great. The armors were a really cool move.

Re: The official JUSTICE discussion thread

Now, I'm trying to figure out exactly what armors are from what:

Batman's wearing a suit he had The Atom build for him awhile ago.

The Atom's wearing a suit of his own design.

The Hawks seem to be wearing some kind of Thanagarian battle armor.

Superman "bonded" with Lead.

J'onn seems to be wearing Metamorpho.

Hal looks like he's wearing Iron.

Flash seems to be wearing Mercury.

Negative Man seems to be wearing Gold.

Black Canary is wearing Platinum.

Plastic Man seems to be wearing Tin.

Wonder Woman is wearing some Amazonian techno armor.



My question is, what's up with Zatanna, Aquaman, Red Tornado and Green Arrow?

# 9 was a really cool issue. I really loved seeing all the heroes in the different types of armor. Definitely a bad ass moment. Many of those guys are going to tear Brainiac a new one...that is even if he has a new one to even rip.

Zatanna is using a spell
Aquaman is using armor from Atlantis
Red Tornado doesn't need armor
And Green Lantern used his ring to form armor...that he doesn't need...he probably just wanted to look totally badass like everyone else.

His normal suit is formed from his ring, and it has black in it.

No. His suit is hidden by the ring, but it isn't a construct. The only part of his outfit that's a construct is his mask. Now, he can use his ring to alter his costume, so I suppose he could have done that.

Hell yeah. He's Hal F'n Jordan...looking bad ass is a must. Though Batman looks more bad ass.

I was under the impression that the uniform WAS a construct, just like Kyle's. It makes perfect sense that he should be able to create black and white, which are the only two colors on this costume besides green.

A Lantern pretty much has total control over the design of his constructs, yes?

So it makes sense that he should be able to control how dark or light his constructs are, yes?

So he should be able to make a construct so dark that it appears black, and so light that it is white, yes?

That equals a costume that he created.

Finally read it. Awesome book. Don't know much about Sivana but I always thought he was a lame villian. He seems pretty creepy. I hope to see more. I'm still waiting for Lex to pull his wildcard.

Dude,stuff was happening the whole time.

I enjoyed the middle part of the story where the JLA was pretty much in shambles and defeated.

I don't know if it's Darkseid. Lex likes to deal w/ people that he can control, and Darkseid is the last person that could happen to. It'll be awesome either way though.

I mean considering Ross is at the helm of this book,I was assuming it would be a classic villain,rather than someone new.
