Justice League #11

Writer: Geoff Johns
Artist: Jim Lee

Each member of the JL has parental issues; every single one of them. That is the main takeaway from The Villain's Journey. July is also on its way to be named Royals Lose It month; first, Namor snaps; now, it's Wonder Woman's turn. Despite the direness of the situation and the heartbreaking recriminations against her, the amazon certainly overreacts and her unnecessary response is way over the top; yet, it makes for some fantastic visuals by Jim Lee and company; the best in the whole issue, actually. Once again, the dynamics within the team seem more like those of a group coming together for the first time, not one with five years' tenure. Perhaps Johns felt pressured to quickly move the League's story to the present, but in hindsight, it may have been better to stay at five years ago a little longer to better develop their relationships. Next month: The fate of Steve Trevor, and it promises to be a cracker.
