"FATAL ATTRACTION"! Batman and Xenos work on the Secret Sanctuary while the Ray and Vixen perform community outreach. But it's not all fun and games for DC's newest superhero team, as the Atom and Killer Frost face off against the Terrorsmith (and their own budding romance) while Lobo and Black Canary come to blows in a casino caper. And it's all capped off with a moment fans have been waiting for since DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH!

    The rest of the team get only small parts in the issue, though all of those are quite good. Black Canary not only gets stuck in a bar brawl with Lobo, as he fights against a version of Mr. Scarlet that looks a lot meaner than the Fawcett character originally bearing that name, but also gets a decent discussion about relationships with Killer Frost towards the end of the issue.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles May 24, 2017

    I don't even have to grade this one a curve. This was the best issue of this title by far. If the characters, not the action, become more of the focus like this issue Justice League of America could quickly become one of DC's best team books. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Manny Gomez May 24, 2017

    Although this issue is a step down in intensity from last months excellent chapter, it is still a solid entry in what is a refreshingly different and old school feeling JLA. By focusing on character beats and some quiet moments, Steve Orlando is able to flesh out these lovable misfits and b listers into characters you want to read about every month. Read on for 11 reasons Justice League of America #7 should be one of your pull list books this week! Read Full Review

    FreakSugar - Jed W. Keith May 24, 2017

    Justice League of America #7 once again shows that a successful superhero tale knows how to balance the action and the pathos, which the book’s creative team has down to a science. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Philip Lawrence May 30, 2017

    While the story fell flat and Terrorsmith made for a less than stellar villain, Jamal Campbell's artwork and the burgeoning relationship between Killer Frost & Atom definitely helped issue #7 overcome it's flaws. I'm sorry I just have to talk more about the artwork more. It is by far the BEST thing about issue #7 and the artwork was the main criticism I had with the previous two issues. Jamal Campbell, keep up the fantastic work! Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Ariel DuPey May 24, 2017

    Things have slowed down, and for the first time I'm really into a JLA issue. We get to dive deeper into the individual members and begin to care about them, apart from just as a team. The more simplistic art was a nice transition from the very busy first arc we read. A great place to jump on. I'm finally excited for JLA! Read Full Review

    Overall, the look of Justice League of America is great, and as long as they don't switch artists, I'll keep getting this series. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Steven Brown May 24, 2017

    Justice League of America was a good read and I'm already looking forward to the next issue. This story seems to be mainly about redemption for Killer Frost and I'm completely ok with that. For some reason certain villains of the DC universe I actually cheer for"Killer Frost, Deathstroke, or Captain Cold for example. Although they're bad people, you can't help but to want the best for them. Maybe that's because there's a little bit of villain in all of us that we can identify with and we can sympathize with these and other villains to a degree. Either way I can't wait to see how this relationship between Atom and Killer Frost plays out"she really deserves a win. Read Full Review

    An effective smaller issue that allows time to develop the interpersonal relationships with the team. The art is well done and falls in line with the tone of the story. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson May 24, 2017

    I keep coming back to this over and over: If you're not reading this book because it doesn't have the "Big Seven" heroes, you're missing the best Justice League in quite some time, featuring an interesting cast of heroes and at least one character who flat-out shouldn't work at all in this context. (And yet, there Lobo is.) Justice League Of America #7 is well-constructed, featuring a complete story full of character and humanity, with solid art throughout and just enough Batman.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 30, 2017

    With a new story arc coming up next it'll be interesting to see where they go with things but this was the kind of issue I want more of mixed into the series as a whole. Read Full Review

    In summary, while not perfect, the issue is a marked improvement for the series and I hope that the creators can keep moving in this direction. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald May 26, 2017

    Don't assume that because I'm not completely trashing Justice League of America this week that we're in the clear. This issue is far from good, but there are some decent moments at least. Now if Orlando can keep this is a minimum quality standard and manage to create engaging arcs on top of this, we might actually get treated to a good book in the future. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 24, 2017

    Continuity is thrown out the damn window again in this issue and Steve Orlando brings in a villain that new readers will have no idea about and by the end of the issue....... I don't think they'll really care.  The art in this issue is decent, but that can't save the mess of story and dialog and the fact that most of our heroes have nothing to do in this issue but make cameos to fill up page space.

    Steve Orlando continues to confuse me, giving us this one-and-done setting up events and villains that aren't compelling in the slightest. I loved Jamal Campbell's art and hope he continues to get more DC work. Read Full Review
