Justice League of America 25 is a double sized issue, as Orlando brings together quite a few plot threads that have been lain during the run so far. I was impressed that even the Lobo/Black Canary team-up from the annual gets referenced.
Saving the world of Angor, the home of the Extremists, becomes the focus of this story, and Dreamslayer, one of the villains from that team, turns to the League for help.
Dreamslayer is able to change reality, but every time he tries to fix things in Angor, it all winds up going badly.
I was very happy to see the return of Ray Palmer in this issue, and Orlando brings back the Microverse. Now knowing that this was his goal, I can understand why Orlando devoted so much time to the Microverse in the last year.
Killer Frost and Vixen, having been in the focus for the last couple of issues, have smaller roles here, and the Ray brings the new Aztek to meet the rest of the team. But it’s really Black Canary and Batman who take the lead here.
Despite the added length of this story, it’s a fast moving read, building to a very good, if somewhat predictable, climax and cliffhanger.
I like the art on this, although I would classify it as solid and reliable, as opposed to groundbreaking.
More than anything, I was glad that this story served to weave together everything Orlando had been crafting in this book.
