    Justice League United: Futures End #1 is a great issue and tie-in to the Futures End weekly, acting as an enjoyable side story. The writing is solid, as is the characterization. This is definitely worth a look if you have been enjoying this series and the weekly. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 16, 2014

    While I still don't understand the reasoning in giving us Futures End titles featuring characters who's pasts and even presents are mysteries to us, I can say that while Equinox isn't really familiar to me yet I did enjoy everything I saw of her here.  This was just a really adventurous issue showcasing this soon to be JLU-er and the future incarnation of the Justice League.  Just a overall fun superheroic time and I can't wait to read it's part two in Justice League: Futures End.  Go check it out and share my enthusiasm.

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Sep 16, 2014

    I have loved the JLU book so far and this issue did grab me a bit with this peek at a possible future. One, after being teased with only snippets of Equinox in the main book, it was great to see her actualized as a hero and using her powers. And it sounds like there is a fair amount of tragedy possibly in this team's future. A team torn asunder, a rift between Equinox and Supergirl, something awful happening to Adam Strange and Ultra ... that's a lot to think about. Plus Dawnstar and a Wildfire mention! And Buddy and Maxine hanging out by the pool alone was worth it. And, while I suppose it fits with the tone of Futures End, I don't like a 'Hall of Justice' with gun turrets, a Kingdom Come gulag, and a Monarch-y Captain Atom. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Eric Tillirson Sep 12, 2014

    Again, if you're following the main plot thread of Futures End, here's a book that seems essential by proxy of it being written by one of the minds behind the overall Futures End event. But I'm not sure I'm convinced on weather this will play out further into the main Futures End story line. We'll see next week. Read Full Review

    I wanted this to be super, but found myself being only mildly entertained. I should have paid for the less expensive cover. Read Full Review

    Jed Dougherty handles the art and his work sometimes comes off a bit too cartoony for the serious tone of the tale, his action sequences are a great deal of fun to follow. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Sep 11, 2014

    Justice League United: Futures End #1 may not be the best Futures End issue, but it's far from the worst, with it's set-up having me excited for Justice League: Futures End #1. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge, III Sep 1, 2014

    I wasn't expecting much from Futures End: Justice League United. Honestly, I was expecting another tonally off gathering of some of my favorite characters with some of them side lined in favor of other fan favorite stars. Thankfully, Jeff Lemire, Jed Dougherty, and Gabe Eltaeb surprised me in the best possible way; by giving the readers and I a straight forward superhero tale that let the characters shine and the weirdness of comics permeate throughout. It may be too soon to call, but so far the Futures End one-shots have outshined the event itself by a fairly wide margin. After reading issues like Futures End: Justice League United it is easy to see why. Read Full Review

    Needless Essentials Online - Stan Ford Sep 12, 2014

    Essentially, It starts off well, but dissolves in quality as the issue goes on. I'm going to buy it because I'm a collector of the Legion, but if it's representative of Futures End, I don't want any more to do with it, and this copy will sit in a box. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Max Eber Sep 11, 2014

    Pick it up to support a poc female lead and a diverse cast even if just for one issue where everything has gone horribly. It's nothing great but it's certainly nothing that will make you tear your hair out too much either. Jeff Lemire seems to either do either really good or really mediocre work. I think more horror based narratives fit him better. Read Full Review

    The dialogue explains things like they did in the 60s..."What's that?" "Let me tell you everything so the reader gets it". Plus, really? Killer Frost taken down by Canadian cold?

    It's rather cheesy, which was fun for the first sequence featuring Equinox vs Polargeist. I kind of wish the comic was just an expansion of this, as this hit the sweet spot where it is so silly that it's great. However, the comic instead moves on to "more serious" matters, but continues the campy trend, especially with the blatantly expository dialogue. When did Jeff Lemire get so bad at writing dialogue? The story itself is something you'll never know or care that you missed, so you might as well save your money.
