Also interesting to see Superman appear before Congress, expressing concerns over the Fortress of Solitude.
What did he say?

^ Good one. Where is the fortress anyway? It can't be on U.S. soil.

It seems to be on its own island at the "North Pole." So not within the jurisdiction of the US Government.

I think Trevor was referring to the Justice League of America, the US government's pet super-team. Because all important super hero teams in the nu52 have to be called Justice Leagues even though they have nothing to do with each other.

@Mr. Light...the occupation of Wayne Tower is a Gotham City situation, and Batman has made it clear in the past many times (I'm sure it's the same in the New 52) that Gotham is HIS city and the League will only intervene if he himself asks for his aide. Otherwise there's no reason for the League to intervene.

I don't know. Nu52 Superman doesn't seem the type to stand aside and allow civilians to be hurt just because Batman told him to.

If Talia occupied the entire city...then yeah perhaps they would intervene, not to mention the bigger picture where she's essentially booby trapped the entire world with bombs. That'd be a much more dire situation requiring the League's attention.

Might have been worth it to throw in a panel or two showing that Talia had engineered situations to keep the big gun heroes occupied outside of Gotham.

Yeah..and who knows we still might see the League pop up in the final issues still in some way.

yeah, i took it as Trevor threatening Constantine with the newly formed Justice League of America.

and i too would like to see Shade come back. he was only in that first JLD arc, be nice if they shifted the roster a bit more.

Quick Question:

Am I correct in thinking that everything in the four Green Lantern books and the preceding War of the Green Lanterns (if that was what it was called?) takes place after Hal leaves the Justice League with the various series meeting up again when the JL takes on Simon Baz in Green Lantern? This means that there must have been a fairly large time gap between the August and November 2012 issues of Justice League, correct?

I'm pretty sure that War was before New 52, and that we essentially have a continuity problem. There was never a single moment between Hal getting a ring from Sinestro, and his "death" by Black Hand for him to spend any time running around with the League.

War of the Green Lanterns was the last major GL story arc of the pre-New 52 I believe.

Yeah, that sounds right to me since I mainly have the GL titles. The last time I recall Hal interacting with them was during the Brightest Day arc.

Now, there is basically only one contemporary Justice League story arc before Hal leaves the League. It could have taken place just prior to the indigo lanterns story arc, but why would Hal resign from the League at that point. He is no longer a Corps member so what pressing off-world business could he have?
