They are the new Justice League of America: Martian Manhunter, Hawkman, Katana, Catwoman, Stargirl, Green Lantern Simon Baz, Green Arrow, and Vibe (yes, THAT Vibe). Brought together by Amanda Waller, they are led by former Justice League liaison, Steve Trevor. However, the Justice League of America serves a greater and sinister purpose: should the original Justice League go rogue, they have the power to stop them.
Serving as an epilogue to the “Throne of Atlantis” crossover with Justice League, this issue of Aquaman gives readers a new start and promises to move our hero into a new direction. What’s the verdict on this nautical adventure? Take the jump and check the Major Spoilers review of Aquaman #17…
Another offering from DC’s New 52 (though its getting quite old); this time its Vibe. You know, Vibe, from the old Justice League Detroit comic, or from the currently running Justice League of America comic. Yeah, I don’t know why they brought him back either. It was probably to appease the great power that is Major Spoiler’s very own Matthew Peterson, seeing as how he and Geoff Johns are the only people with fond memories of him. Does Vibe hold up on his own? Find out after the jump!
The new Justice League of America débuts with a whoppingly ridiculous 54 covers, with Geoff Johns on script and David Finch handling art. Will Justice League of America #1 have you declaring “America, F yeah!” or just mumbling “America… ehh… whatever…”? Stoke your patriotic pride as Major Spoilers reviews Justice League of America #1 (this reviewer got the Indiana cover).
It was bound to happen sooner or later, but it has been confirmed that Geoff Johns, DC Comics’ chief creative officer, is stepping down as the writer for Green Lantern.
He is the master of sea creatures and a member of the Justice League; a hero caught between the surface world and his ocean world of Atlantis. Unfortunately for Aquaman, he is also the butt of many superhero jokes in mainstream media, ranging from Family Guy to Robot Chicken (he needs to be near water for him to be useful, apparently). With the new 52, Geoff Johns had the daunting task of making Aquaman relevant. After a year and a half, he has succeeded so far. Now, this title and Justice League crossover to face off against Aquaman’s half-brother, Ocean Master.
We all know that the Man of Steel will be playing in theaters this coming summer, but it looks like he could be entering your house sooner than that. DC has released the first trailer for the coming animated movie Superman: Unbound, which you can watch right after the jump.
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.
Hacked coordinates. Rogue missiles. Carnivorous sea beasties. Giant tidal waves. Inter-office dating. What is happening to this world and how will the Justice League cope? Major Spoilers dives in! Also, Shazam!
This is the ultimate team-up comic. Five years ago, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman formed the Justice League to stop Apokolips’s forces from invading Earth. Now, they are the premiere team against any threat too great for one hero to handle. However, with Green Lantern quiting the team and the other members in turmoil, can the Justice League stand together?
Or – “Well, I’m Not TOO Far Behind…”
On Wednesday, the ghosts and goblins came out to scare us out of our minds, and to allow us all to unleash the slutty truth within us. DC Comics also tapped into the holiday zeitgeist, unleashing an old favorite on the world with little fanfare, but is it a fright-fest or a huge mess? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
The flagship title of the New 52 begins a brand-new story arc this issue. Of course, the real reason most fans will pick up the comic is to see the fallout of last month’s famous kiss between Superman and Wonder Woman. Action, romance, and a new super villain? The book seems to have all the ingredients for a great comic. Take a look at the final product, as Major Spoilers reviews JUSTICE LEAGUE #13…
