So I actually kind of like a bit of what they did with the Justice League.

So when the Justice League was relaunched in the New 52, there was three Justice League titles.

JUSTICE LEAGUE–Justice League started off with the origin story five years earlier.  This story is set about six months after Superman’s debut and a year after Batman’s career began.  No Appelexian invasion this time around.   They started off with the big bad Darkseid invading Earth and bringing together the greatest and newest heroes.  Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and Cyborg.  Cyborg is new to the founding roster in this reboot.  The Martian Manhunter is involved but he’s now a member of another team so he can’t join the League.

I thought they story was good.  The idea was good.  However, like much of the New 52, a lot of questions were raised.  After the first story arc, they jump forward five years.  The five year period of missing stories were not the same adventures as the original version, and we weren’t sure if they had disbanded or operated the whole time.

Justice League International–As the “present” period of the New 52, the original League had disbanded, and Batman created a new international version.  It is clear that in this new timeline, the JLI period never happened.  So this is the first formation of the Justice League International.  Unlike the original JLI, this team actually was more of a international version, with heroes representative of various nations.  It was more serious than the original JLI and the series didn’t last very long before it was cancelled and replaced by the Justice League of America, a new version of the League that was controlled by the U.S. government.

Image result for Justice League Dark

Justice League Dark–This was a pretty neat idea, but in many ways it was just a redo of the Sentinels of Magic and later Shadowpact.  When the Justice League has disappeared, the magic based heroes form together as the Justice League.

There’s not much more to say about the League here.  Next time around, I’ll talk about the golden age and JSA in the New 52.

So it looks like we could be getting a space at First Churches, Fridays from 1 – 3. They have to discuss it and approve it at their staff meeting, which won’t be until after Pastor Todd comes back from vacation after July 4. It will be in the rec room, aka the basement. That basement saved my life and many others, and it’s a very familiar recovery space for many in our community, so I’m very pleased with it. The only downside is it looks like it will cost us $60 per week for the space, and since we are not passing a basket but rather dependent upon fundraising, that’s going to be a challenge.

And now back to the nerdy stuff.

Image result for New 52

I was discussing the New 52 and how it affected different aspects of the DCU differently.

Image result for Green Lantern was a little like Batman in the reboot

Green Lantern was a little like Batman in the reboot.

Image result for Green Lantern was popular again

At the time of the reboot, Green Lantern was popular again.  So they decided not to reboot it.  Well, except, as we discussed, when you have an intertwined continuity among all your titles, in a vast mythos spanning decades, you can’t just do a reboot that doesn’t affect some titles.

Image result for the history of Green Lantern no longer happened

So while the Green Lantern tales continued where they left off before Flashpoint, a lot of the history of Green Lantern no longer happened.

Image result for Cyborg Superman and Mongul still blow up Coast City

So Doomsday did kill Superman, but the Reign of the Supermen didn’t happen.  So did Cyborg Superman and Mongul still blow up Coast City, leading to Hal Jordan becoming Parallax?  He still became Parallax, and did that whole killing all the Lanterns thing…
