Geoff Johns continues to sully the good name of the Justice Society, just to boost his own ego.
The story opens up with Sgt. Rock and Easy Company ambushing some Nazis led by Per Degaton, and Degaton escaping into the timestream. We then fast forward to modern times where Huntress, Helena Wayne, the future daughter of Batman and Catwoman, is explaining to Dr. Fate why she is this timestream. When Fate realizes they are facing off against Degaton, he brings Huntress to the Justice Society to confront him.
This book has been a mess since day one. One of the worst things about the New 52 was the omission of the JSA. It took DC Comics 11 years to bring them back. And the way they came back was in ANOTHER over-hyped Geoff Johns book, Doomsday Clock.
Johns is seriously just stroking his own ego and thinks he can do no wrong, and the powers that be at DC believe it too! Guess way… HE CAN’T.
Johns is ruining everything that was great about his first JSA run. Pieter Cross has been replaced as Doctor Midnight by Beth Chapel, who was killed in pre-New 52. The same with bringing back Yolanda Montez as Wildcat. I seriously hate these characters and feel they don’t offer the same as Pieter and Ted. The only reason they are in this comic is that Johns had to have them in that stupid Stargirl tv show.
And now it looks like Johns is trying to phase out Helena Bertinelli so he can have the Earth 2 version of the JSA. Let it go.
The only redeeming qualities in this book is the art by both Jerry Ordway and Mikel Janin. Just beautiful as always. I especially love seeing Ordway in his elements of the days of World War 2. Plus Jordie Bellaire and John Kalisz colors really pop here. But they are so wasted because of the writing.
It’s time to put another writer on the Justice Society and to put Geoff Johns on a short leash. I think killing off Stargirl would be a great way to keep Johns under control..
