    I can't wait for Aquaman to make his return to the DCU, and hopefully the JLA. I also love the new JLA lineup, and I hope that several of them stick around after this arc has ended, with Firestorm, Major Disaster & the Atom being the three characters who I feel would be ideal fits into the JLA. The issue also has itself some interesting little moments, like the opening conversation between Nightwing & Faith, and the scene where Nightwing is demanding Jason Blood release the Demon. There's also the ruthless display by Lex Luthor, as he nearly kills the JLA in his bid to save the world, and the discovery that one member of the old JLA is still alive, or at least able to make contact with the team in the present day. However, there are moments in this issue where I must confess I'm at a bit of a loss to tell you what Joe Kelly's trying to deliver, as that final page is outright confusing, as are the scenes where Jason Blood is commenting on the villain's plan.
