Somehow tech built by the Manhunters, which were replaced by the Green Lanterns, is somehow a match for the Legion of Doom who have been empowered by cosmic forces?

Leviathan also went from a separate faction trying to establish its own mandate to a generic “supervillain” group. Great.

Rarely I see a comic with no redeeming qualities. Last time it probably was King's Knightmares trainwrck of an arc. Usually you get something of value for the money - most of the time decent art, sometimes decent story, (very) occasssionally both. But this... this is awful. Everything about this comic is awful. Plot, dialogues, art, all with no exception horrendously bad. If it was an indie book, more

Thank god this bullshit is over. Why anyone would want a Justice League book where the heroes almost never win is beyond me. DC needs to do some housecleaning and Snyder, despite a few good stories, needs to go along with King and Bendis. Get writers back in who know how to tell complete stories and remember what the point of having heroes is. This entire run was trash.
