  1. This has been an absolutely terrible arc, and I generally love Crime Syndicate stories.  I think this team should be moved back to Titans where they belong, and Robinson should stop writing JLA altogether.  Give him a Congorilla / Starman book and call it a day.  Winick’s JLI: Generation Lost book is what a Justice League book should be.  I hope DC takes note.
    I’m still reading this for some reason, but I’m seriously not enjoying it.  Glutton for punishment, I guess.

  2. i agree.Not that big of a Justic League fan but always liked Crime Syndicate.I like this story arc and sad it has to end.Can’t wait to see what happens.BTW read JLA:Earth 2,now that book was well done.

  3. Why can’t DC come up with the bright idea that the JLA should have the core members on the team. Superman, Batman, Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Aquaman & Martian Manhunter. There’s your team! Who wouldn’t buy this book?

  4. I don’t have the ill feelings towards this run that most readers seem to have.  I jumped back on JLA b/c of Robinson.  I like what he’s trying to do by bringing in these 2nd generation heroes to step up to the plate.  All of the “Big 7” have other stuff going on in their own books that doesn’t really allow them to be in JLA.  

    Do I think that Robinson has been 100% successful in what he’s attempting?  No, but I like enough of his previous work to wait and see where he takes this.  
    Also I think Bagley leaving will be a step in the right direction.  No disrespect to Bagley, I think he’s great, just not on JLA.  

    Anybody know which artist is coming onto the title? 

  5. @zattaric  Brett Booth is doing the art on the next storyline “Rise of Eclipso” which I’m actually looking forward to.  Guess we’ll get to see Robinson poop on all my expectations for that too.  I was excited about Robinson’s run on JLA, but it has only been as good as previous stories on this volume of JLA.  I agree on Bagley’s art, I happen to usually like it, but his work on this book has been really sub par.

    @Joethemithra:  You are correct, Earth 2 is great, and so was “Syndicate Rules” from the previous volume of JLA #107-114 written by Busiek.

    I agree that the “Big 7” need to be in this book. What we have now is “Justice League: The Next Generation.”
    Dick instead of Bruce as Batman
    Supergirl instead of Superman
    Jade as the Green Lantern
    Jessie Quick as the speedster
    Mikhail instead of J’onn as the alien
    Congorilla instead of Aquaman – can’t think of a good analogy
    Donna Troy instead of Diana

    I understand that they stepped in to fill a void and the original team will probably be coming back at some point. But sometimes it does seem like the “B” team instead of the “A” team. It’s interesting how the team has worked out to be this way. Those seven main JL characters are so important in their roles and iconic that Robinson has filled those roles with the next generation of them. The importance of these roles, along with the dissatisfaction of many readers, should make DC see the need to bring the original team back.

    The JLA needs 7 core members. I would prefer the “Big 7” for the most part, but the Trinity have to be there, a Flash has to be there, and a GL has to be there. They MUST have Martian Manhunter. There can and should be others that rotate in and out, but we need the A-list characters in this book. I think if Robinson were writing it with them, it would be a lot better.

  7. I don’t harbor the hate that everyone seems to feel for this team either.  Im not wild about the writing, but I think the casting is great.   YES, the Big 7 is going to come back,but for various reasons in their own books, its just not the right time for most of these characters to be on the team right now.

    Dick Grayson had a stellar last couple years under the cowl in his own book and Supergirl’s own title has been generally well-received…no reason they shouldn’t be on the team in Supes and Bats’ absence.

    Donna Troy is up for debate but since Wonder Woman “doesn’t exist” right now, Donna Troy is fine with me.  Minor continuity error in that Donna Troy referenced Diana in this ish (theoretically only Max Lord and a couple of folks from Generations Lost know), but it wasnt a major disaster.  Hey, though, it sure would be nice to know what the perception of Donna and Cassie’s origins are, while Diana is out. 

    Mikhail and Congorilla are the best part of this line up right now, so they stay  as far as I’m concerned.

    Jessie Quick I have some issues with here….I know why Barry’s not in but it would be nice to see Wally not being put out to pasture completely. Im sure Wally’s not being used because there’s some concern about how confusing it would be to new readers but I think the editors should give us the benefit of the doubt for knowing the difference.  I don’t hate Jessie here but she’s a lot better in the JSA.  Let’s show where Wally is…he does still deserve a prominent role in the DCU.

    I love Jade….and though I know she’s not up to her fullest potential here, I stilll like seeing her….and I must admit, its nice to have a GL sort of character here, thats not all caught up with the corps and not necessarily have to hear why one Lantern should be here or another.    I like Hal, I like Kyle, I like John, I like Guy….I dont really want to hear the latest rant of why one should be here over another.   They’re ALL tied up right now…I’m ok with Jade here.

    Aquaman, the Hawks, Martian Manhunter, and Flash….they’ve all spent some major time being dead,let them come back to the team when they’ve re-established their lives…Im willing to wait for their return to the JLA when we can get all 7 in here all at once.   Sure, Jade’s been dead too, and she’s here, but so what?

    Not one single reader wants to see the Big 7 as the JLA forever, with absolutely no shake-ups in the roster ever…  That’s not interesting for for the writers, the artists, or the readers.   We do not ALWAYS have to have the A-list characters:  Justice League International had a huge successful run which gave a lot of second, even third string characters a chance to shine and become beloved by fans.    

    Instead of complaining endlessly about the lineup (they’re coming back!)…focus on the stories themselves being told.      No, the writing isn’t the greatest, its been up and down but then James Robinson’s not exactly had it easy with major stories being told in Blackest Night/Brightest Day and all the other multi-issue storylines DC’s been juggling.   Either see what Robinson’s got in store for the team next, or find another title to enjoy till the roster changes again.

  8. Hey Mark. When you get back to Marvel, see if there’s a spot open for James. Thanks.

  9. God the art on this issue was HORRIBLE!! Good riddance Mark RAGley!!
