David Uzumeri wanted to include a panel for Justice League of America #40 by James Robinson and Mark Bagley. Unfortunately, he couldn’t settle on just one, so in the spirit of the season, we’re going to give you four for the price of one. Here you go!

Did DC look at Ultimatum and decide that they could do worse? Oh, James Robinson. How far you’ve fallen. I remember an issue of Kyle Baker’s Plastic Man making a joke about how ever since Identity Crisis, Dr. Light’s superpower has pretty much just been “rape”. Yeah, pretty much. Thanks a lot, Brad Meltzer.

On a more positive note, Azrael is pretty good so far.

  1. Uzumeri tricked me into reading JLA 40, and it’s somehow worse than that issue of Brave and the Bold that set me off the other week. It’s not intellectually insulting, it’s just bad. Really uncomfortably exploitative and cruel.

  2. Wait, how did he get her on her belly?

  3. Dark Avengers #12 – The last-minute (week, whatever) way out that Bendis needs so he can “amaze” everyone when it’s revealed that Osborn’s weapon was the Void the whole time. I did enjoy the acknowledgment of Molecule Man’s existence over the last few issues, though. Shame on me for only knowing about him through an early 90’s Marvel trading card set and thinking he looked like the lamest FF villain ever.

  4. dc: all chest ripping, all the time!
    seriously, I remember people saying dc had gone too far with the dibney shit and thinking they were over reacting.
    dc is secretly being edited by eli roth.

  5. “Frankenstein IS Dead”…

  6. I suppose Sentry Vs Molecule Man’s a fairly fitting match-up, as they’re both incredibly powerful characters with severe issues of self-doubt.

  7. What? No-one is offended by Doctor Light’s racism? (Or did your eyes just sort of glaze over by the second panel…?)

  8. Wait, maybe Light’s talking to US, as readers, chiding us for wanting “sanitized perfection”, devoid of human flaws?

    … Nothing?

  9. Wow, this is a side of Dr. Light I’ve never seen before! But then, I’ve been dead for the past ten years. Bless the Black Lanterns.

  10. Well James Robinson, we’ll always have Leave It to Chance and Starman, but I think me and you are done now.

  11. Robinson fucking confounds me. It’s not even like his other work since returning has been this bad. His Superman run has been perfectly enjoyable with the exception of the horribly amateurish art at times and the occasionally shitty line of dialog.

    But, when it comes to Justice League? I have no fucking clue.

  12. remember when you could open a dc or marvel issue and at least smile once? It’s not natural for a 20-year old to miss glory days he never lived. And yet here we are.

    wow james; wow

  13. Guys, guys!

    I think you’re all ignoring what’s important: how fucking sweet that line-up of Elektra’s Chaste clan is.

  14. Sorry Gavok, I only recognised three of them.

  15. I recognize Wolverine, Iron Fist, Silver Samurai… The girl on the right might be Marrow and as for the guy in the middle with the (curly?) hair… The Beyonder?

    If so, sweet line-up indeed!

  16. Wolverine, Black Widow (hard to figure out from that panel, I know), Classic Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Echo and Silver Samurai.

    I really did wish Bendis would have added Silver Samurai to his original New Avengers lineup.

  17. no aquairian? no hypno hustler? whata gypp!

  18. @Debaser: indeed. His Mon-El stuff is simply charming to read and WoNK is a great.

    Is so odd that both of those series are coming out at the exact same time as his JL stuff, not a few years in between but the same time. amazing
