    Justice League of America #14 was a delightfully fun read. McDuffie goes old school by just trying to deliver some popcorn for the mind. Not every comic book on the market has to be dark, somber, serious and dramatic. Not every title needs to be a deep and heavy read. Sometimes you just want a quick read that puts a smile on your face and delivers some mindless entertainment. I'd certainly recommend giving Justice League of America a try if you enjoy straight up old school comic book heroes, villains and action. Read Full Review

    In short, if you want to sink your teeth into a great Injustice League/Legion of Doom story, pop in the final season of Justice League Unlimited, because McDuffie's comic book version isn't nearly as entertaining. Read Full Review

    I will say that Ed Benes's pencils are as crisp as you'd expect from him. He's a great match for the iconic nature of the book as the Justice League of America: Wedding Special proved, featuring competent-but-not-great pencils from Mike McKone. Benes was born for the Justice League. I'm just not sure that McDuffie was. Read Full Review

    While I had no problem with Brad Meltzers love song to the Justice League, McDuffie just isnt hitting the right chords here. I cant help but feel like he is just trying to emulate his work on the Justice League Unlimited cartoon but its not as entertaining. I cant get passed the fact that Superman didnt take a few minutes to call for back-up nor can I buy that Luthor made him angry enough to cloud his judgment. A few years back Manchester Black, one of the greatest Superman villains created in the modern era, put Superman through psychological torment trying to get Superman to kill him. He pushed Superman to the edge but Superman remained level-headed, even when Black made Superman think he murdered Lois. Luthor has angered Superman countless times over the years and Superman has always remained level headed. With this in mind its hard to chew that the JLA being captured is enough to make Superman angry enough to do what he does in this issue. Read Full Review
