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.

Just like everything Snyder writes, this run ends with nothing. For a worthless, meaningless story, it lasts too long. Perpetua is a boring, annoying, outdated villain and that makes the JL even dumber. I may be wrong but is Snyder whining about editorial decisions in the story? That's pretty unprofessional and narrow-minded I think since the story is JUST BAD.

this entire series so far just feels like a bore to me. It may have to do with the bias that I have against the Batman who Laughs, that character has been overused so much and he is so ineffective in every book he's been in that I don't believe any of the Infected will stick or have any major impact on the status quo. Guaranteed by the end of the year all of these characters will be back to thei more

Superman being smug that “Clark Kent” was such a good disguise, that’s new. Not a fan of it.

Suddenly Mongul is a threat? Really? The guy Superman took out with a single punch a couple issues back because he just “needed to punch something” is now somehow able to not only threaten the fledgling United Planets but also defeat Superman. I don’t buy it, it’s either one or the more
