Unable to solve their ordeal peacefully, the JLA in the past battle the Ancients of Atlantis to save the present and free Aquaman in part 6 of "The Obsidian Age." However, when all seems lost, unexpected help comes from the unlikeliest of allies!

    On one hand it is nice to see Joe Kelly develop a threat that can do such a convincing job of handing the big seven JLA their heads, as by the end of this issue there's very little doubt that the JLA were out of their league in this encounter. Plus, while I have a pretty good idea of how they'll bring the JLA back to life, there is something to be said for the simple fact that this issue actually shows the JLA dying some pretty horrific deaths, and the battle does gain a nice sense of urgency when the normally jovial Plastic Man starts to play for keeps. On the other hand I found it rather difficult to work up much excitement over the villains that Joe Kelly has created, as their powers are largely ill-defined, and their personalities never emerge as anything all that interesting. Plus, this arc is still a bit up in the air about what the JLA were hoping to accomplish, as the rescue of Aquaman hasn't really played a huge role in this arc. Read Full Review
