Cadmus tries to add a new member to Justice League 3000. We say tried to because the last thing Firestorm wants to do is join what he considers to be a group of losers. It gets complicated.

    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Apr 12, 2014

    This issue is a fun read as we get a lot of action in it. It plays off what we learned about our heroes from the last issue which is fun to see as most of the characters are disgusted that more heroes are back from the dead and that the Wonder Twins (at least one of them) seem to have no idea what they're doing. Which I hope to see the outcome of that once they get away from the Five. I can't wait to see the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 11, 2014

    "Justice League 3000" #5 is one of those comics that packs a whole lot of action and conversation into twenty pages. Readers learn almost everything they need to know about Firestorm, both through the discussion between Teri and Terry (the Wonder Twins) as well as through Firestorm's actions and declarations. Giffen and DeMatteis' story is really coming together and I find myself just a bit more invested in each issue, especially with Firestorm now in the mix, such as he is. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jacob Torres Apr 13, 2014

    Justice League 3000 is everything Giffen and DeMatteis' have become synonymous with. The series continues to be a refreshing change of pace for readers, offering a distinct blend of action, comedy, and character work that is truly unlike anything else the New 52 has to offer. Their unique brand of humor is all over the book, including some possibly overlooked bits on the title page, and a consistent highlight of the series which reminds readers that comics can still be fun.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 10, 2014

    Justice League 3000 #5 has Firestorm and he is great, brutal fun. However,  the story barely moves an inch, but I am still a fan.  Raymund Bermudez and Wayne Faucher fill in on art and do a really good job.  I just hope this book picks up the pace because I want to see what happens sooner not later.

    It seems like the newly reborn members of the Justice League are finally finding their place within The New 52; while this issue was, for the most part, fairly mediocre, it's gold compared to the preceding issues. Read Full Review

    This series is one that seemed like it had potential, but at issue #5, said potential is running on fumes. Read Full Review

    Overall, I'm more disappointed than I expected to be. I think I just might drop the series from my pull-list now. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matt Dodge Apr 11, 2014

    "Justice League 3000" #5 is not a good comic book. It doesn't do anything new or interesting with the characters, and their status as malfunctioning clones removes any chance for real character motivation. The art feels rushed and incomplete, and the weird faces that abound in this issue are definitely off-putting. "Justice League 3000" #5 is weird, and not in an interesting way, instead it's just a mess. Read Full Review

    This series is still a strange mixture of new ideas, stale plot, and intriguing possibilities. The plot didn't move much this issue. We still have the Wonder Twins fighting about what they've done. We still have the Justice League fighting The Five (Those are The Five we keeping gearing about, right?). Firestorm is brought in this issue. I'm not sure what to think. He's angry and violent because of his two person matrix, but that's how all of the JL were, so not sure how that's different. At least we see some character development with Clark getting more approachable and Bruce being more analytical.
