    DC Comics News - Steven Brown Mar 2, 2018

    This book was packed full of action and I enjoyed every page. It seems that Batman however is about to embark on a personal mission and this was that mission. In the beginning of the book he talks about how he's not needed to unify people anymore. He talks about how people would begin to doubt his image, and those of the Justice League. It's the very reason why he put the Justice League of America together in the first place. However it makes you wonder what will happen to Batman and for that matter the Justice League in the future. I'm looking forward to reading the next issue to see what happens next! Read Full Review

    More than anything, I was glad that this story served to weave together everything Orlando had been crafting in this book. Read Full Review

    In Justice League of America #25, the Extremists come back into the story in a plot that feels very Kirbyesque, as well as having a stronger narrative than the initial arc did. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Justin Cooper Apr 17, 2018

    A much better story, and the building upon the foundation of previous story arcs. A good tie-in, but unfortunately not much for the rest of the team to do.I enjoyed this story, but it reads more like a Batman crazy weekend story than a Team Book of supporting characters. A good fun read, that picks up on some old nostalgic notes, and introduces Lord Havok and the Extremists into the Rebirth Universe. Read Full Review

    JLA could quickly become one of DC's best series if this story continues. Read Full Review

    Justice League of America #25 is a solid issue, but sets a quick pace that will remind you the clock is ticking on this current incarnation. Read Full Review

    The JLA has faced down true abominations and masterminds in their run so far, and a rematch with their first villain is the perfect way to see how far they've come. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 1, 2018

    Justice League of America #25 is a solid issue. There is a lot of dialogue, and not a lot of action is included. However, its plot setup is a decent amount of fun, the art is fantastic, and I can recommend the comic. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Read this if you love Black Canary brutally calling out Batman on his behavior and motives. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Feb 28, 2018

    This series has long had an identity crisis, and that problem doesn't look to be resolved any time soon. There's no immediacy to the threat, no emotional stakes presented, so what we're left with is a book without any real substance. The team talks at each other without truly interacting, and events come and go without reason or explanation. It looks good, to be sure, and there isn't anything offensively bad, but I was honestly bored through most of the story. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Feb 28, 2018

    I don't think this series is going to end on a satisfying note. Surprise! All joking aside, this issue was nonsense and as padded as they come. The story simply doesn't support the over-sized format. Most of the art was good, but it came later in the issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 28, 2018

    Batman shows up to save Angor and by the end, I wish he could save this book!  It's ending soon and in case you need to be reminded why that's a good thing, give this issue a quick glance.  It's a take your pick extravaganza of problems...pacing, dialogue, story, characterization and more that keeps this from ever being the important book it wants to be.  If this is the Justice League the people deserve, I hate to see the one it doesn't!

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Feb 28, 2018

    Overall, this book was akin to watching paint dry. Orlando might have a love for the Extremists and their story, but its not being shared very well with the audience in this issue. The next part of the arc will have to bring in more members of the League, and up the action, if it has any hope of salvaging interest in this storyline. Read Full Review
