Justice League and its sequel/continuation Justice League Limitless are criminally underrated cartoons. And it’s possible the most effective episodes were being wrapped up in the Justice Lords, the show’s possess globe-dominating, totalitarian model of the Justice League.
The villainous crew was introduced as a Justice League from an alternate dimension where by an Evil Superman had used his laser vision to lobotomize President Lex Luthor and the Justice League experienced seized management of the human race from there. But more than the program of a time-very long arc — yeah, Justice League Unlimited had time-prolonged arcs — the clearly show disclosed that the Justice Lords weren’t from a further truth. They were being from a probable long run that appeared to be creeping closer each day.
Now, thanks to DC Comics’ new Justice League Infinity series, set in the continuity of the cartoon clearly show, we’re acquiring a further story about the villains whose every single look reminds the Justice League of the true potential that they’re headed down a dark route.
What else is going on in the internet pages of our favorite comics? We’ll tell you. Welcome to Monday Funnies, Polygon’s weekly list of the books that our comics editor enjoyed this past 7 days. It’s element society internet pages of superhero lives, aspect reading tips, portion “look at this cool artwork.” There may be some spoilers. There may perhaps not be plenty of context. But there will be great comics. (And if you missed the very last version, read through this.)
Justice League Infinity #1 is a smorgasbord of Justice League Unlimited favorites. Amazo? Verify. Elongated Gentleman and Booster Gold? Check out. That subplot where by the Martian Manhunter give up the League to dwell secretly as numerous human identities in buy to study to enjoy humanity? Verify!
Yeah yeah yeah, the X-Males moved to a treehouse in New York and constructed a mech to battle a kaiju in some great previous superhero hijinks but the real highlight of X-Males #1 is that Gerry Duggan is continuing his quest to place Murd Blurdock, alien place law firm and parody of Daredevil, in all the things he potentially can.
I experienced in no way read a Sas Milledge-drawn reserve right before, but I simply cannot say no to “teen hedge witchery with a light-weight fantasy placing.” Mamo #1 rewarded me with wonderful art and this complete hook of a double character introduction.
Crush & Lobo is completely about Crush distracting herself from how her girlfriend broke up with her by getting a galactic highway trip to satisfy her deadbeat father — but it is also obtained that superior old Lobo room absurdism, which I consider is a good touch. To me, Lobo will generally be the room pope of a fish faith.
With the shut of the Heroes Reborn arc, Avengers is kicking off “World War She-Hulk” — you know, like World War Hulk but with Jennifer Walters. The Earth War right here looks to necessarily mean anything a little bit distinct, with Russia kidnapping Jennifer Walters and tossing her into the Purple Area for brainwashing, reworking her into — what else — Pink She-Hulk.
It’s difficult to decide a single panel from Wonder Woman #2. The reserve starts off Yara off with a fantastically rendered origin level — and Jones is bringing in so significantly from the broader (DC Comics) Amazon entire world even though also inventing new parts. How to promptly get paid my loyalty for a Question Woman guide: use the Amazons.
