The Legion of Doom push the Justice League out of their own book in the latest issue. I’m totally fine with that. The story advances the plot that has been developing since the first issue, after all. And aside from that, this is such a fun outing, it would just be silly to complain about it.
And though I say this issue belongs to the Legion of Doom, more specifically it comes down to the Joker and Lex Luthor. Some of the other villains who had been part of the tale return, and a whole bunch of new ones make cameos, but it’s the big two who are the core of the story.
Of course, one should never trust either Luthor or the Joker, so turning an issue over to them means we are going to be treated to Byzantine plots, schemes within schemes, and as much betrayal as one can handle.
I am absolutely loving this. Tynion turns in a highly entertaining story, and Guillem March does superb work illustrating it. He particularly rises to the challenge of conveying the madness of the Joker, who seems almost about to burst right off the page.
I have consistently been impressed with this new volume of Justice League. Drowned Earth was handled very well, and having a Legion of Doom issue before turning the book back over to the titular team was a very good idea. It immerses the reader back into the main storyline, and gets us all revved up for where the story is going to go next.
