I just read it and I want to discuss it
beg in mind that this is not a review so im assuming that anyone who enters this thread already read the book, therefore there will be spoiler.
The premise of the book i think is really really solid but it is not original, and i dont mean by the fact that i have already seen this kind of thing before, but for the fact that it has been already been tried in the new 52 with the disappointment that was Justice League International, but here is done with a much better execution than that.
it lays a perfect presentation to every single one of the characters as well as the plot and why this group needs to be together, That last part is something has been omitted in a lot of team books, even Justice League doesnt have that, BoP didnt had that either.
however i had 3 problems with this book, 2 of the characters and the ending.
the characters in question are Catwoman and Hawkman.
Starting with Hawkman, i have read all the issues of Savage Hawkman, it is a horrible series, it has a horrible direction and just plain horrible ideas, it was bad with Daniels, it was bad with Liefeld its bad with Defalco or whoever is writing it now, its obvious to me that DC didnt knew what to do with the character on his own series.
and the problem that i have with Hawkman here is amazingly that it doesnt anything to do the series, or at least from what we have seen so far.
now you might think "wait a sec, if Savage Hawkman sucks so bad wouldnt it be good to just sweep it under the rug like its been done here?"
well to me thats not positive, its just inconsistent, the Hawkman in JLA is a cop who is hunting thanagarians in earth, I have no idea where did that came from and I dont even remember if Hawkman is a cop here.
but maybe its done by design, maybe this is not the same hawkman and the whole thing is the set up for him as the traitor of the storyline.
Regarding Catwoman, Steve Trevor convinces Catwoman to join the JLA by telling her that he knows her real name as it was established in the terrible Catwoman 0, but there is another reason and is cause Catwoman knows Batman better so she is perfect to take him out and I absolutely no idea where the hell that BS came from
really? Catwoman knows batman enough to take him out?
with pre-new 52 Catwoman maybe I would agree but with the current Catwoman is not even close to that if only just because they had sex, it just blows my mind the logic in this idea.
It doesnt help that she has been portray so badly in her own book again and again and besides I just hate the entire "she is not Selina Kyle" or that she has a fake name, it basically tells me that she is not Catwoman at all.
Finally The ending
basically Green Arrow dies, and thats the ending, except that we know he wont die at all so i feel that is kind an stupid way to end while trying to be dramatic about it.
and thats pretty much my 2 cents
what do you think?
