    In Convergence: Justice League #1, we met a team crippled by self-awareness. This set of tie-ins features the Detroit Justice League, probably the most widely ridiculed version of that team to arise in more than fifty years of comics history. In no small part, that lack of respect stems from the absence of all the League's traditional major powers. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and Green Lantern are all missing. Only Aquaman and Martian Manhunter remain, and of course the King of the Sea has often been regarded as the weakest of the League's long-time members, while Martian Manhunter has never really been utilized to his full potential. In the first issue, we saw the effect of a year under the dome on this group of heroes who already lacked confidence. Despite the best efforts of Ralph Dibney, the Elongated Man, they remain unready to face the assault of the Tangent universe's Secret Six, quickly losing Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, and Zatanna to a stasis trap.

    The best Convergence tie-ins were the ones that kept their art team intact for both issues, and I'm calling it now - Convergence: Justice League of America has to be the most fun out of all the tie-ins, namely because it doesn't come off as completely ridiculous in the concept.

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 25, 2015

    Convergence is a bit of a hit and miss. The main series is a bit blah, and the tie-ins are hit and miss. This is one tie-in that stands out" a lot. The tie-ins might have a pretty standard formula, but that doesn't mean you can't do somethign special to make it stand out, Nicieza shows just how to do that. Read Full Review

    Everything comes together in "Convergence: Justice League of America" #2, adding to a visually stunning issue. The outcome is a happy ending of sorts, but the impact of the battle upon the combatants is murky at best, especially with "Convergence" winding down soon. This issue serves as a nice sample from Nicieza, ChrisCross, Cortez and Leigh, proving that the Justice League Detroit has story potential and characters worth investigating more extensively. By the final page, I find myself wanting a Justice League Detroit miniseries from this creative team. After all, it's nice to see optimism flavor heroics once again. Read Full Review

    Convergence: Justice League of America #2 tells the tale of some b-listers hanging on and fighting the good fight until the cavalry can blow the fight wide open. Nicieza & ChrisCross entertained me as the wound this one down, and more cranky Vibe is just good for comics. Read Full Review

    Not a darn thing to do with Convergence, really, but a nice issue featuring maligned heroes past… Read Full Review

    While this issue won't elevate the Justice League Detroit team in anyone's minds, it does showcase those B-listers that we love, while they try to prove themselves to their city and to themselves.  Cool concept and all but in the end it didn't really stick the landing and I ended up feeling worse for these characters than I originally did........ and that wasn't the story's intention.  We got great art though and one of the best opposing teams in all of Convergence going on here.
