    An interesting dilemma that is completely underdone by a highly simplistic finish where Joe Kelly essentially offers up one of my least favorite endings that any writer can tack on to their story. I mean having Faith essentially defeat the entire alien armada in a single page is the modern day equivalent of the classic Silver Age ending where the entire story was revealed to be a dream. This type of ending doesn't require any real creative thought on Joe Kelly's behalf, and as long as Faith is a member of the team I'm going to be left with the idea that when things get too tough he'll have a nice handy easy out that he can use to resolve the conflict. The basic theme of this issue was pretty solid though, and up until Faith's little display of power I was ready to give this book a glowing review for its presentation of a rather atypical JLA scenario. In the end though this is an issue that is undone by its weak conflict resolution. Read Full Review
