The JLA takes its shape-shifting extraterrestrial visitor on a grand tour of the wonders of Earth--but the alien seems more inspired by our planet's darker aspects, aspects that could mean the extinction of mankind as we know it! "Extinction" part 2.

    Ok the shape shifting alien has decided with all the violence it sees on Earth we want to kill our selves and it is going to help. Its to bad it didn't decide to help by trying to help people get along better. Can you imagine a world where everyone tries to get along and help each other? That would sure make for a boring comic. So now the JLA has to go after the alien who isn't really evil hes just trying to help. It has just not learned that we want to survive at all costs. Even with all the violence we know life is precious. Now the JLA has to stop the alien or convince it to stop. Read Full Review

Now I'm sure Dennis O'Neil's heart is in the right place, as one only has to turn on the news to get the sense that society is on the verge of going down the tubes, but this issue does more harm than good as there's nothing quite as ineffective at getting a message across than a story that is so clearly designed to raise our social awareness of the problems in the world. I mean there's a reason why most people point to the After School Specials as an example of bad Read Full Review
