I just finished reading Alex Ross' JUSTICE and I have a couple questions, that Wikipedia doesn't answer (Wikipedia doesn't even list Sivana in the Legion of Doom). Please note im just a casual comic book reader. I don't know D.C. that well: 1. In Volume 3, doesn't Aquaman spear Black Manta in his head early on? I though he kills him there, but then they have another showdown at the end of the book in Manta's city? 2. Who are all those side Justice characters? Such as those gold and silver alien-type characters, and that giant girl that fights Giganta? There is some dialogue with the gold/silver characters when they are fighting Parasite, where something happens when someone says "Gold." And then Parasite stabs one of the characters. I don't get it. What happened there? 3. Capt. Marvel gets Black Adam to say Shazaam and turn back to regular dude (in which he says "I haven't been in that form for such a long time". In the history of Capt. Marvel comics, did Black Adam ever change back to regular dude? Or he is always Black Adam? 4. The Legion of Superheroes pop up at the end. Anyone think that this is a marketing ploy to get them more popular? 5. Anyone else disappointed that Darkseid didn't pop up? The only reference to him was that they got some technology from his city. 6. Is Clayface gay? I thought there was some hint that he wanted to have sex with Green Arrow. Later in the story, it was mentioned to Clayface by another villain that it's easier to capture them (green arrow and black canary) in a simpler way then his "sexual deceiving" way. 7. Although his outfit looks cool and ninja-like, Elongated Man's armor didn't protect his eyes. Anyone else notice that? 8. When all the Green Lantern corp. shows up to catch all the nukes, where's Kilowog? 9. Why did Joker kill Scarecrow? Was that just supposed to be a random act of craziness? Or was he jealous of Scarecrow being involved in the whole Legion of Doom scheme and not him? 10. At the end of Volume 3, there are some superheroes in space rebuilding something that looks like the Death Star. Is that the Justice League Watchtower? 11. When the Legion are all sitting in that dining room with Lex toasting everyone in the middle (Giganta and Sinestro are standing, not sitting), who is the character sitting all the way on the left side? He looks like Bruce Wayne. Is he one of the brainwashed superheroes? 12. Did anyone get killed? It's left open whether Cheetah and Metallo are dead. Anyone else?
