    In fact, I anticipate that somehow, something happens with Byth and this black hole. Remember, Byth has said all along that he has done all of this before. I bet that Byth is thrown back in time via the black hole and has to relive everything we have seen again. He is stuck in a time loop. I am pretty happy with this title and with this arc. Great Legion stuff ... truly. Nice characterization for the Leaguers. A feel of DC Cosmic. And very good art to boot! Read Full Review

    Shlocky old fashioned space age fighting, loads of Legion superheroes, breathing in space! Moving in space! Flying in space! It's all here. I feel like the current team is way too underpowered for this kind of grand space opera stuff, and it hurts for it. The ladies of the legion and Supergirl (and to extent Stargirl and Equinox) however save this issue with their high involvement and ultimate role in subduing Blythe. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Feb 13, 2015

    Ultimately, this issue feels like the penultimate installment of not just an arc, but of a major run or series. If rumors are true, Lemire is done after next issue, and there is more than a little bit of the end of James Robinson's "Justice League of America" run present here, with Lemire cramming in a ton of ideas to cover what he might have wanted to do with twice as many issues. The issue flies by, because each panel is packed with a ton of information, a slew of characters, and a lot of action. Read Full Review

    Justice League United #9 is full of old-school fun and excitement, but the large guest cast makes it hard to dig into. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Feb 11, 2015

    Justice League United #9 drives this arc toward its final chapter and really, if you haven't read the arc up to this point, this isn't the best time to jump in. While it wouldn't be impossible, with a cast this size it would not be easy to follow if you haven't read any JLU to this point. Lemire's carving a different path through the DCU with this title and, for the most part, it's working for me. These characters don't make the most sense together, but that's part of the zaniness and I do like a bit of zany in my life. I'll be back for #10 to see how this rounds out. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 13, 2015

    Like we've seen from this series, this issue too is just chock full of heroes fighting and teleporting to places and at this point it's getting a little stale.  It really pains me to say this because I love these characters but this whole story arc is just coming off over the top and not that interesting at the same time.  If you're invested in this series then you might get into it but this really isn't for everyone.  Luckily though, we've got Neil Edwards drawing the hell out of our favorite B list heroes and I love seeing that.

    I'm really sick of this arc, and, if the next one is as drawn out as this one, I may well decide the book isn't worth it anymore. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Feb 13, 2015

    Sometimes, it's best just to put things bluntly. Justice League United, which started off shakily but with promise, has devolved into a hot mess. Writer Jeff Lemire always had difficulties with the dynamics of a large and disparate team drawn together suddenly from scattered locations in response to a very complicated emergency. The time and effort required to keep all of the moving pieces in from crashing into one another left him precious little space for exploring all his characters and their relationships, much less carefully explaining the ins and outs of thetwisting plot spanning the galaxy and the millennia. Imbalances appeared quite early and never really got rectified. But one had faith that Lemire, proven to be one of DC's premier up-and-coming writers and sometimes mentioned as a possible heir-apparent to Geoff Johns, would eventually bring his house in order.

    "The Infinitus Saga" seems to have been going on for quite some time now. Thankfully, this penultimate chapter puts some of the pieces where they belong, but it also gives that final chapter a lot to wrap up. Read Full Review
