    If you consider the DCU a wonderful universe and you're looking for an issue that essentially agrees with this premise than this issue should be right down your alley. However, if you're looking for a comic that does a little more than wave the banner, than this issue offers very little. Basically this issue is a flashy, but largely empty exercise in which Mordru is defeated by the idea that even in the far flung future there will be super-heroes standing ready to defeat his evil plans. Now sure the show is a fairly flashy display of power, and there a couple impressive visual moments such as the double-page shot of the assembled JSA moving in to deliver one of the most ineffectual mass attacks since the Keystone Cops, but this is an issue that felt rather empty at it's core. In essence it's all sound & fury, and one would hope there's more to the DCU than this issue offers up.

    The unsung and unwanted hero of JSA is without a doubt Leonard Kirk. True, he is depicting Johns' drivel, but Kirk has throughout given this story the best chance to engage interest. He visually made Hector Hall look as if he should resonate; though, he doesn't since he's still Hector Hall. Power Girl's pulchritudinous pumpkins are about the only thing DC considers canon, but Kirk still respected the character enough by beefing up her muscles to balance out her mastodonian melons. Still the best thing about this issue of JSA is the Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft milk advertisement on the back. I would once again like to thank the American Dairy Council for their humanity.
