* Transformation of human into energy or information:
    In All Star Superman Superman himself has begun transformation into solar energy and has a vision of his father telling him  Kryptonians have evolved to the point of transforming into sunbeams implying that although thier bodies die the mind cannot be destroyed. speaking of visions...
   In many of Grant's stories a character has a vision of something that relates to their future. In Batman Bruce Wayne himself has a vision of three Batmen who themselves became characters in the rest of his Batman run. Events like this also have happened in his series The Invisibles.    
* Jackasses who are heroes at heart:
   In The Invisibles there is a little bastard named Dane who is in fact the new savior of Humanity over time he grows into a sympathetic character then a likable character then into leader of humanity as humans evolve to their next stage. In Batman there is Damian Batman's asshole son who just like Dane isn't liked really. But in Batman #666 Damian has become the new Batman (and admits that he is not as good as his father or Dick Grayson) and sold his soul to the devil (possibly Dr. Hurt from Batman R.I.P.)  to protect Gotham City. That's how dedicated Damian is to justice he will probably go to Hell to do the right thing.
* Foreshadowing:
   In Dc One Million there is mention of the Superman squad that has traveled back in time to stop the Chronovore which became a issue of All Star Superman eight years later. In JLA Rock of Ages the JLA go to the future but not far enough and see Darkseid has taken over the planet earth and uses the Anti-Life Equation to contol humans. This can be seen as a foreshadowing of Final Crisis that happened ten years later. Batman is even blasted by the Omega beam just like in Final Crisis and Metron also calls earth the seed for the Fifth World a term he uses in Final Crisis.
* Part of the story:
   Grant Morrison has placed "himself" in the story before. One of Grant Morrison's first creations is Gideon Stargrave who was revealed in The Invisibles to be King Mob a character who resembles Grant Morrison to the point that King Mob's pen name is Kirk Morrison. The similarities to Comic books and real life became strange: When King Mob got a flesh eating virus Grant Morrison got some sort of fungus on his face. When King Mob found out he may die Grant Morrison became so ill he almost died (he claimed to have used a magic spell to save his life). In Animal Man he wrote himself in the series as a character called the Writer who made Animal Man's adventures and controlled his life. Also Damian in Batman #666 appears with a shaved head and has a cat (Grant Morrison loves cats apparently). While writing All Star Superman Lex Luthor looked like him the same can be said for New X-Men because Xavier looked like him too.
* A better tommorow:
   No matter how dark something is in his stories there seems to be a theme that the world will get better. In Arkham Asylum the main idea is that after all the bad stuff Batman goes through he has cleansed himself and become more zen like the way he was in Grant's JLA run. Batman goes through another situation in 52 where he has purged himself of all doubt and fear he has had the past few years. A the end of Final Crisis the world is stripped down to a Watchtower (I think something similar has happened at the end of The Invisibles)  but is saved by Superman who uses the Miracle Machine (a wishing machine) and wishes for a happy ending at the end New Earth is fixed and there is talk on the tv of new possiblities. Even in R.I.P. Batman survies all that is taken to him and doesn't meet his "end" till Final Crisis where he is blasted by the Omega Sanction only to live at the begining of time.
* All connected:
   After reading more than one of Grant Morrison's strories  it can be seen thay all consolidate one another and you can see echoes of his previous works there is a character in Doom Patrol he made called Crazy Jane and in The Invisibles there is someone named Ragged Robin who has the same vibe as Jane the two are both named Kay and both say "I'm Nuts". All Star Superman is connected with DC One Million all his Batman stories are connected JLA hints at Final Crisis The Invisibles and The Filth share some suff in common. And apparently Dane and King Mob  make a hidden cameo in Marvel Boy (I never read Marvel comics so I don't know for sure).

That is what I see after reading some of Grant Morrison's work and I haven't read all of it so I'm sure other people smarter than me who have read all of his work can see more stuff that is going over my head.

Why not it would be cool. All Star Squadron 2009 to deal with anybody from Mongul Superboy-Prime and now  the Black Lanterns in addition to the other lanterns who are all prophisized to kill eachother in the first place.

I will read James Robinson's Justice League title but the JLA should be one massive group that deals with the big threats any time something like Sinestro Corps War or Final Crisis happens it should be told in the pages of Justice League of America with the world's greatest heroes, sure Superman may be on Krypton and Batman was Omega Sanctioned but there still could be a big JLA team maybe like this:

Black Canary


Dr. Light


Green Lantern (John Stewart)



Red Tornado

Red Arrow

Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)

Green Arrow

Mikal Tomas




Captain Marvel (Freddy Freeman)

Ray Palmer

Atom (Ryan Choi)

Barry Allen and or Wally West

Batman (Dick Grayson)

Robin (Damian)



Wonder Woman

I haven't read the Superman books lately but I know Chris is Nightwing and Thara is Flamebird and I just wondered are they together?

JLA has had problems because a couple of years ago major things happened in JLA any time something like Sinestro Corps War, Final Crisis New Krypton or now Blackest Night would happen it was the League that dealt with it now they are more part of the background. I like those big storylines but it should be the JLA dealing with those events from their point of view. Besides from Grant Morrison's run on JLA it is clear that JLA is to big for breakups and characters angry at each other and that's where McDuffie shines maybe he was just the wrong choice.

There is something strange about that list Wonder Woman has. Some of these characters make no sense being on this list and characters like 4D Access Anarky Brainiac's Daughter Grey Ghost Al Pratt Mon-El have not had any moments with Diana to be considered Friends just because two characters interact doesn't mean they are friends.

He has a real skin condition called Epidermolytic hyperkeratosis he is also like the elephant man in that David Lynch movie (which is based on a real guy named Joseph Merrick) also he was deplicted in The Joker graphic novel realistically. Besides The Dark Knight is still a superhero movie it's not the "realism" that sold the movie it was the fact that it was well written, acted and directed treating Batman with dignity and respect.
