    Geeked Out Nation - Grant Raycroft Dec 18, 2015

    Justice League United doesn't end on a high note, and strides to the finish as what it's always been, a comic with high aspirations it never quite realizes but is full of heart and a fearless confidence for experimentation. Jeff Parker fleshes out the Justice League member Alanna Strange who at this point deserves better exploration in the DC universe. Her adventures with Adam have the potential to reach the same fan devotion of Aquaman and Mera. Foreman is the real star of this issue, for better or worse, exploring a far more cartoon inspired style that at times feels more in place on a single panel political comic and Hi-Fi brings the expected level of quality colors to this book. Befitting this run, It's a tough sell to most casual superhero fans but an interesting take on the DC's most prominent superhero team. Read Full Review

    The biggest crime this comic makes is not making me more interested in the Justice League United, because they're a more interesting collection of characters than the JLA, except Equinox. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 21, 2015

    A rushed ending, with some muddy art that undermines the plotting a bit. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 21, 2015

    Justice League United was never a perfect book, but the idea of crazy team-ups with heroes and villains had me excited.  Unfortunately, it's ended without seeing much and this finale is the worst of the bunch.  The worst thing, though, is that the issue ended with nothing being resolved as far as the overall story goes.  I can't even recommend this issue to people who stuck with this book up until now.

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair Dec 18, 2015

    In the end, we get a revelation about Sardath being Alanna Stranges dad (who cares), and we somehow rescue Adam from the Zeta Beams by pushing a few buttons (too convenient). Overall this ending was a real let down and can be skipped all together…not to mention there isnt a Batman related character in sight. Sad to say but I will not be missing this series.

    As with the rest of Parker's JLU run, I seem to have enjoyed it a little more than most. Like Gotham By Midnight, I feel this is a series that would've gotten even better given time to grow and mature, but I'm glad we got as much as we did. The art was especially notable this issue. Travel Foreman's art seems to be slightly more stylized than his usual and I love it. I'd be very happy to see Foreman on another of DC's titles full-time.
