Let’s here it for one of the biggest and most tiresome super hero comic book cliches in existence: the misunderstanding fight between super heroes.

That’s what half this book is, a fight between Batman/The Flash/Green Lantern and Superman. And it’s boring. Not only is it cliche but it’s boring as well.

And I absolutely cannot stand Hal Jordan in Justice League. I’m looking forward to the day when Batman just slaps him upside the head. I hope it happens soon. It’s surprising because Johns has been writing GL for so long now. I know that this is five years in the past, and it’s supposed to be showing the beginnings of the superhumans in the world, but are these characters really that inexperienced?

The story is cliched, in alot of ways for alot of the characters (not just the fight). The joke of “what does Batman do” is getting old already. When The Flash asks “what can you do” and Batman answers “I can keep us on track” I just shook my head. That was the best response that could be given? Really?

For a flagship title this has been a let down so far. The formation of the team is somewhat lame. So far none of these characters are really likable. It’s like Johns took the worst characteristics and chose to play them up. It’s not just inexperience coming through, or at least it doesn’t read that way. These are not likable characters at this point.

It at least looks nice. Lee’s work is as good as it’s always been and Sinclair’s colors give it a nice life. The last page is a bit overpowering with the colors though, washing out alot of the detail. He does a good job with GL’s constructs and Flash’s speed.

Justice League #2 receives
2.5 out of 5

A boring fight to open it off and bland dialogue between characters that aren’t that interesting.
