    My growing fascination and appreciation of Mark Bagley continued here. There is a nice kinetic feel to his fight scenes here. And James Robinson, outside of a slip here and there in dialogue, really has a nice grasp of these characters as they each have a unique voice and personality. This was one of those issues where I wished the next part was coming out now as opposed to a month from now. That is always the sign of a good issue. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 23, 2010

    This title is DCs flagship book (at least in my mind) and its time that it was legitimately good again. Justice League of America #50 is a couple-three steps in the right direction, earning 4 out of 5 stars overall, even with more Darkseid stuff in the margins Read Full Review

    I'm a sucker for alternate reality stories, so I could honestly just enjoy this on the basis of seeing the CSA and the Tangent universe return (and then also guessing which New Gods the characters at the end corresponded to.) While I enjoyed the last arc with the Starheart, I'm a lot more eager to find out how the JLA is going to handle this army of dopplegangers and decaying alternate worlds. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 21, 2010

    It's nice to see "Justice League of America" also finally addressing some dangling subplots, like Doctor Impossible's scheme that started a year ago. Or, for that matter, exactly what Impossible's is, since we've gotten little more than hints and potential lies since he showed up way back in "Justice League of America" #1. Ever since Brad Meltzer left after "Justice League of America" #12 this has been a book that's felt adrift and being pulled in multiple directions by everyone but the writer. For the first time since then, it's starting to look like the writer is steering the ship again. With any luck, it'll stay that way for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    There is also a scene where Jade's power pulse suddenly begins reciting free-verse poetry while Jade is sucking the energy out of an opponent. Those scenes just show that the writer simply can't write good poetry. Read Full Review

    This has the potential to be a great arc- the JLA vs the CSA, and these new Faux Gods thrown in for good (bad?) measure. This is a chance for Dick to shine. I also can't help but wonder if Robinson didn't in part do this to show "Hey, this IS the real Justice League" by having them face off against their evil counterparts. Read Full Review

    I think I'll likewise take a break from future issues until the powers that be decide to bring the JLA back. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Oct 21, 2010

    Ultimately, what I found most distracting about this issue was the makeup of the Justice League roster. I just don't feel excited about Donna Troy as a standin for Wonder Woman or Jade for Green Lantern. And Jesse Quick looks kind of silly in a costume designed in the 1940s for a male character. I can big the notion of the Dick Grayson Batman as part of this team, but not without stronger, more experienced and more imposing presences from senior heroes. Furthermore, the opening scene with Jesse Quick and Supergirl endeavors to get the audience (and the characters themselves) to buy into the League as a family, and that's just not how the concept works. This feels (and is presented like) the Teen Titans dressed up as the Justice League, and while that's a natural progression, it just doesn't feel right to me. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 20, 2010

    Justice League of America continues to languish even well into Brightest Day. Something needs to be done to put this book back on track and back at the forefront of the DCU. Read Full Review
