@meatwadf: not sure anything could have saved a Winston Churchill who was a terrible caricature, a lame spitfire battle in space, Daleks who looked more like a new line of iPod Nanos and one of (in my opinion) Matt Smith's worst performances as his anger in the episode was never believable. Plus the ending relies on an awful "power of love" trope. Weak.
Why is everyone talking about the lineup as if it's novel? Hasn't this been the status quo for months now?
Dude, since when do comicbooks still even have a status quo? (last I checked, not since Infinite Crisis at the latest)
Pretty sure mainstream comics as a medium is renowned for having a status quo. You really haven't heard someone say something like "this change won't last very long, soon enough they'll restore the status quo" Examples: Superman and Spider Man get de-married, Bruce Wayne becomes Batman again, Steve Rogers becomes Captain America again, Peter Parker gets control of his body again, Clint Barton stops being Ronin and becomes Hawkeye again. And I can go for hours. Anyway, I was talking about the "current" or "temporary" status of the JL lineup. Which is bound to be reversed within a couple of years, mind you. But my point that this roster has existed for months is no less true regardless of semantics.
