^ Not to mention atrocious dialogue and the characters being caricatures of themselves...but we've brought all this up before many times in the thread. I'm mainly sticking with it because i kind of want to see how this origin arc concludes and the jump forward to the present with the second arc. I'll probably make my final decision after the second issue of the second arc...I'm patient, but not that patient. Also it was "Superman" that I dropped after last month finally. Not reading it until Griffin and Jurgens are aboard. Justice League #5: Well...yeah. Still have the same problems with this book that I have had since the first issue, I would say this is maybe the best issue so far. I enjoyed the discussion betweenn Bruce and Hal. Bruce would never unmask in the freaking middle of a major battle though under any reason! Even against aliens. WTF? I understand he was attempting to level with Jordan but seriously unmasking? I don't care that there wasn't anyone in the immediate area, Bruce would never take that chance under any circumstances. I don't know if this was done for "shock" value, or because it hasn't really been done for, but I don't get Johns reason for doing so except for trying to reach through ass hole dumb ass Hal. Darkseid is immensely powerful. I think this might be his most powerful incarnation yet. The art is fantastic as usual. Otherwise yeah...same old as usual. Aquaman #5: Arthur is lost in the desert. That whole sequence reminded me of Luke on Hoth and Obi-Wan's force ghost. The holographic Atlantean message reminded me of Action Comics when Clark finally sees the message of Jor-El. Sigh. This has to be the weakest issue of the book so far. It is starting the Who Sunk Atlantis arc though.
