    Given the big seven (plus Plastic Man) have been the mainstays of this title for the better part of the previous seventy issues, this injection of new blood has done wonders when it comes to generating a sense of excitement, as we now have new character relationships to examine, and new personalties to react to the situations that Joe Kelly introduces. We have Firestorm's sense of wonder at being in the big leagues, Nightwing's struggle to keep control of the team while trying to avoid becoming the control freak that Bruce was, and of course we have Oliver Queen, who continues to be his charming self. The situation that Joe Kelly has come up with is also pretty interesting, as we see the planet's water is been magically drawn away, and when the team casts a look in the direction of where the water is being drawn to, they uncover a very unsettling message. In the end present day half of this story is infinitely more interesting that the half set in the past. Read Full Review
