REVIEW: Justice League, Vol. 1: Origin by Geoff Johns, Jim Lee (Illustrations), & Scott Williams (Illustrator)

As a part of the monumental DC Comics—The New 52 event, comics superstars Geoff Johns and Jim Lee bring you an all-new origin story for the Justice League!In a world where inexperienced superheroes operate under a cloud of suspicion from the public, loner vigilante Batman has stumbled upon a dark evil that threatens to destroy the earth as we know it. Now, faced with a threat far beyond anything he can handle on his own, the Dark Knight must trust an alien, a scarlet speedster, an accidental teenage hero, a space cop, an Amazon Princess and an undersea monarch. Will this combination of Superman, The Flash, Cyborg, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and Aquaman be able to put aside their differences and come together to save the world? Or will they destroy each other first?In one of the most game-changing titles in comic industry history, Geoff Johns and Jim Lee re-imagine the classic heroes of the DC Universe for the 21st century. This volume collects issues #1-6 of Justice League, part of the DC Comics—The New 52 event.

ANNNND I loved it :D. It was full of action and we get to see how the Justice League got together (at least in this version…I wonder if it was the same in the non-New 52). We see some awesome interactions especially between Batman and Green Lantern, sometimes deep and meaningful, and sometimes snarky. I now like Green Lantern a little more. I like to see him interact with other especially since he’s an ass most of the time. It’s great when he’s spouting out information and realizes he’s touching Wonder Woman’s lasso of truth.

I’m going to tell you that I pushed this one off as long as I could until the day it was due at the library because, well, Justice League seemed a little lame. I think it’s because of Superman…you guys know I’m not really a fan right? But even superman was decent in this one. (Not SO good.) Wonder Woman on the other hand was a little blood thirsty for my taste. I still liked her but to me she wasn’t really Wonder Woman. But I’m wondering if she’ll grow a bit in the other volumes.This was also the first time I’ve read about anything Aquaman. He seems alright, I don’t know why people make so much fun of him.

I’ll be adding this one to my collection and will keep up on following volumes! 4bats

  1. I love Justice League! I ‘m not a fan of Supe either but I love Batman. This is one series I’m buying. Can’t wait for the first volume of JLA to come out.


  2. It was indeed a good opener to the new Justice League, but I feel that they may have introduced Darkseid a bit too early. A villain like that should indeed come later, but he was still very menacing.
