    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 14, 2014

    As I said above, Lemire and Edwards do a great job with this middle chapter, turning up the action to 10 while moving the plot and the characterization forward as well. Outside of the slight misstep with Buddy, I thought this whole thing clicked ... from Supergirl's fierceness, to Byth's comments about Kara, to Equinox's insecurity ... and her ability to overcome it and be a hero. I hope Hawkman's brainwashing ends soon (a Saturn Girl mind scrub?) and the two distinct fronts end up uniting into one location. And while the action was great, I hope we see less brawling and more plot next issue. But for now, for this place in the plot, this issue clicked. Read Full Review

    The story improves now that Jeff Lemire is able to move past the exposition overload of the first chapter and focus more on the elements that work - epic action and memorable character dynamics. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Renee Montoya Nov 13, 2014

    I found myself getting a touch confused about where each sets of characters were located. It was jumpy and with so many characters I found it a touch confusing. This series has only just started, not quite a full volume yet and I can see what its trying to do, I think its going to be one worth sticking out for a while longer still. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Nov 13, 2014

    Neil Edwards just art rocked this book.  Every character just looked great and if there were any real background to this story I'm sure he would of rocked that too.  The story on the other hand kind of let me down.  We were given really good issues leading up to what I thought was going to be our heroes darkest hour, but what we got was yet another lead up with nothing to show for it other than an extended fight scene.  I still love this book and all it's many bad ass characters, but this month's issue wasn't really something that needs to be read.

    DC Collectors - Wayland Smith Nov 15, 2014

    They have three more issues of this story to go, and I'm not sure I see where it's likely to get to at this point. It's ok, but it's not really gripping me. This title is one I keep thinking about dropping. For now, they have me because it's the only place I can see the Legion. After that? We'll have to see. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 15, 2014

    All in all, Justice League United #6 does the trick, with lovely visuals a compelling story and strong enough plotting that the dozens of characters don't totally overwhelm it, even if things do bog down a bit. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 20, 2014

    The action allows the latest issue to highlight the powers and limitations of a questionable number of characters all in one book (and I'm always okay with Stargirl getting to kick a little ass). Starting the second-half of the Ultra arc in the annual was a bit of a dick move on DC's part as those who missed picking up the issue may struggle a bit for why everyone (including heroes from the future) seems to be fighting over killing, controlling, or worshiping an awkward alien kid, but even for as messy as it is the story still holds together (although I have doubts whether it can continue to do so for three more issues). For fans. Read Full Review

    The downside is that there's too much happening.

    Supes' soups Nov 13, 2014

    This issue is all over the place. Supergirl is drawn on the title page which is clearly somewhere in Canada (she's drawn right behind Mon-El and Martian Manhunter) and yet a few pages later, she's somewhere on a moon in outer space talking to Byth. So either her super-speed is severely underestimated or the editors weren't very careful with this issue. That gripe aside, the story gets a bit hectic, Green Arrow and a corrupted and very alive Hawkman are in a brawl, Supergirl is fighting Byth and the rest are in one clusterf*&% of a battle in the ice. On top of that, we're about to get a surprise appearance by some Legion Lost members. This insanity is either gonna be brilliant or it's gonna explode in our faces. I like Lemire's work but I think he's better with the more intimate stuff like he did with Green Arrow.
