After a year and a half as a team since the 52 reboot, their roster has not changed. Besides Hal Jordan a.k.a. Green Lantern leaving the team, their core has consisted of a six member team: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman, and Flash. However, with promotions for a new Justice League (of America) from DC Comics, change seems to be coming very soon.
Or – “From The First Crossover, To The Last… At Least For Now.”
Last week, I put on my Retro Goggles to look at a giant-sized blast from the past in Superman Vs. The Amazing Spider-Man. That first in-universe co-production led to more crossovers, including a proposed Justice League/Avengers crossover which went into production in 1981. Before the book could see print, though, relations between the Big Two went sour for more than two decades, but fans (and co-creator George Pérez) never lost faith, and eventually the tides of fortune shifted into favor for a new crossover. But was it worth the wait? Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review awaits!
DC Comics has revealed the first two covers of the 52 variant covers for the upcoming Justice League of America #1.
DC Comics has announced it will release Justice League of America with 52 variant covers. With the flood of variants on the way this February, we want to know if you are on board with the idea.
With the Superman lawsuit is taken care of (for now), Warner Bros. can now move ahead with a Justice League feature film without the fear that they will lose the rights to the heavy hitter of the team. And to prove that this time, they are serious about the movie, the studio is putting it up against the Avengers.
Justice League #7 brings us ahead five years into the present day after finally ending the Darkseid situation. I felt as if some parts dragged on previously in this series but was a great read overall. Not to mention I was really getting tired of the red hues and shading. Now that our foundation is built, where will the Justice League take us now? Find out more after the jump!
You’re probably already tired of seeing the cover to JLA #1 by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, but DC just released a higher resolution image of the Jim Lee/Scott Williams piece, and I think it looks great!
It’s the conclusion of a JLA/JSA cross-over, and everyone has turned up for a big fight. How nice.
DC Comics has released a sneak peek of James Robinson’s JLA #38.Â Take the jump for some Despero, Plastic Man, Red Tornado action.
I really don’t have a problem with fan films, unless they are done with no regard to storytelling, the effects are lame, and basic concepts of composition, lighting, and sound are thrown out the window.Â Any guesses on my thoughts on this piece?
In this episode: repeated reviews, spoilers supreme, heavy metal heroes )along with fan feedback), a little white witch, Rodrigo gets Hyper, Stephen pours a Foundation, we go to the tote board for the final tally on the Major Spoilers Hero Drive, Aquaman is dead, and much more!

Remember that huge teaser DC sent out a while back talking about legends living forever? Look at the very bottom of the story as posted, and you’ll notice I mentioned the only Justice League member not present was the Martian Manhunter.
Well several months of speculation and the rumors have moved from Batman (the only character pictured who hasn’t died) back to J’onn J’onzz. Why not Batman? Word is Warner Bros., the parent company of DC, stepped in and politely told DC not to screw with the film franchise, leaving poor ol’ J’onn as the sacrificial lamb.
Even though J’onzz has been around forever, he’s always been on the fringe of the spotlight, so it is surprising when fans react to save the character from the chopping block.
Michael Netzer is so passionate about the Martian Manhunter, he’s taken up a crusade to save the character.
I know you might be asking why I should care about J’Onn J’Onzz. Well, as the artist of the 3 issue Adventure Comics #449-#451, back-up series featuring the Martian Manhunter in 1977, a series which also featured supporting roles by Superman, Supergirl, Hawkman, Hawkwoman, Braniac 5 and more… well, I understand that this in itself might not seem like such a substantial relationship for an artist to have with a character.
So what do you think? Save the Martian Manhunter or let him die? Remember kids, the only character not officially back from the dead is Barry Allen, while everyone else (including Major Spoilers) has been resurrected time and time again.
