How powerful is too powerful? Lex Luthor has assembled everything he needs to complete his plan of turning the world toward doom, including reviving the ancient goddess Perpetua and restoring her powers. But can he keep Perpetua from dragging the DC Universe into the abyss alongside the rest of the Multiverse? This is a question that hero and villain alike must ask, as the epic battle between the Justice League and the Legion of Doom across space and time comes crashing together. Everything that happens here sets the stage for the senses-shattering finale of the Justice/Doom War-and the fate of all existence hangs in the balance!

    By keeping it contained and under control, it makes a cracking good read - and it should make for an explosive wrap-up! Read Full Review

    Manapul and Porter bring some dazzling visuals to this issue with art that is bold, beautiful and filled with emotion. Every cliffhanger in this issue is beautifully rendered. Read Full Review

    Justice/Doom War has been a great arc thats setting a new modern standard for Justice League. Itll be interesting to see if it will take several years for other creators to match this epic story. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Nov 20, 2019

    Despite the heavy themes the art was still loose and fun to offset some of the darker moments that the implications of the narrative imply. Read Full Review

    Spectacular. That's the only way to describe not only Justice League #36 but the scope of the six-month-long storyline that's wrapping up Snyder's run on Justice League. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Matt Herman Nov 21, 2019

    Although Snyder constantly jokes that every story, "is the one that everything's been building towards", this time it's 100% true. This is the payoff for over a year's worth of buildup. Get hype. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 20, 2019

    The Justice League may not be close to winning anything yet, but they are ready to go down swinging.  Yep, our heroes are ready to play the spoiler role and they are throwing everything at Lex to keep him from winning the cup.  Francis Manapul and Howard Porter share art duties and they both do a really good job and by the end of the issue, I wanted more, more, more.  That is a recommendation right there.

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Nov 20, 2019

    I wouldn't call this the most eventful issue of Justice League, but there was certainly a lot to take from it. There was a big power shift among the villains, the heroes stepping out of their void of perpetual mistakes, and a different kind of battle engaged when both sides come to a full clash.

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Nov 20, 2019

    Overall: Justice League #36 is a blast to read. Scott Snyder continues to make each issue of the Justice League all about fun. If you love the superhero genre and larger than life concepts then you must hop aboard Justice League. There are few titles that embrace the insanity and full potential of the superhero genre like Justice League. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Matt Fischer Dec 4, 2019

    I actually really loved this issue. As has been my complaint of numerous issues of this run the page count puts the art at a deficit. The scene where the heroes assembled looked so tiny with just a lot of outlines. If it had a page (or dare I say two) to breathe, the art would have been phenomenal. Read Full Review

    Justice League #36 has a very epic ending, one of the most epic endings I've seen in recent superhero comics. Everything leading up to that point is... well, it's a bit messy. Read Full Review
