Justice League 3000 was fun because it introduced new characters into new situations, all whilst capturing the essence of why the Justice League and its members were fun in the first place. Unfortunately, something gets lost in the transition to Justice League 3001, and this volume is a chore to read.We open with a two part story that concludes Justice League 3000 (always a good start, well done once more DC's trade department), which will likely confuse anyone who hasn't read Justice League 300 [...]
Giffen's classic JLI sometimes flailed around a bit, but it usually settled on a story. I can't really say that's the case here. This volume is all over the place because Giffen can't figure out anymore if he's telling the story of the resurrected JL, the newly woken from the past JL, or their enemies. As a result, we get bits and pieces of a cast that's now over a dozen, but not a lot of focus on any of them. Along the way, we also lose great plots from the first volume, like the idea of people [...]
Really great storyline! Made me see the Justice League in a whole new light.
I'll admit that I'm kind of impressed that Keith Giffen has managed to keep the same schtick going for 20+ years - Justice League 3001 has a fair bit in common with the Justice League Europe comics I read so long ago, including a surprising number of characters for a story 1000 years in the future. The book is split between the 'Superbuddies' and the Justice League 3001 characters as they stumble through a lot of nothing. There's a little bit with Fire and Ice that is okay (and their interaction [...]
I know J.M. DeMatteis is listed as the scriptwriter for this, but this continuation of JL 3000 reminds me much more of Giffen's work on the LSH. Anything can happen in this universe and it does. I'm including (no spoilers) deaths that I would not have guessed at until they happened, and alliances that make sense, but were still slight surprises.Giffen does get in characterization while keeping the title moving at a good pace. Bruce and Clark are becoming more like people, arguably even Diana. A [...]
First two issues should have been part of previous one, since they ended JL 3000 story there. The rest, some humourby giffen ande matteis, great art by porter, but guest artist don't deliver as well. Great concept somehow hindered by editorial leash?
Just a lot of fun.
Another interesting alternate take on the classic DC heroes, this time transplanting them nearly a thousand years in the future where they come back different. Superman is a cocky asshole frat boy, Green Lantern is a woman, Wonder Woman is a hedonistic bully, the Flash is a teenage girl, and Lois Lane is their unknown evil nemesis hiding in the body of the Justice League's de facto leader. Lots of drama, much of it gender and sexual based, ensues. Intriguing title for mature fans.
The resurrected Justice League is back once again to take on the world of the 30th Century. Egomaniacal Superman, ever ready for combat Wonder Woman, a mellowed down Batman, a lady Guy Gardner and Barry's DNA in a girl Flash. Well, the team is dysfunctional and they are finding their feet.Ariel Masters' consciousness has been hi-jacked by Lois Lane who along with the Injustice League only means to kill the Justice League. This leads to the missions to a world dominated by Starro and similar miss [...]
Even in the barren fields of the New 52, the sainted Giffen and deMatteis found a way to wedge the bickering and B-list heroes that made their Justice League International such a treat into what had initially looked like a grimdark futuristic franchise expansion for Johns' shitty reboot of the present-day League. Plus, twists and turns aplenty (unless the identity of the team's nemesis was revealed in the last volume and I forgot it). Oh, and a future imperfect Superman whose confusion over gend [...]
DeMatteis and Giffen are two of DC's most tenured writers, and Porter began pencilling for the company in the mid-90s. I like to think that's earned them some leeway at the DC offices, or maybe they simply fast-tracked the approval for this new series during the company's recent cross-country move. Whatever the case, it's nice to see that DC's still supporting an offbeat series like this. Highlights include a lineup of gender-swapped heroes, a narcissistic Superman, and Lois Lane as the maniacal [...]
The story changes focus with this volume. Ariel Masters has been taken over by Lois Lane and she's sending the Justice League on missions to get them killed. The Justice League's personalities have been toned down to make them a little more likable. The feel of the series is trending towards the great 80's Justice League that Giffen and Matteis created. Some of the jokes are still flat so they still haven't quite hit that perfect balance of action and humor they had with the 80's series.
I like the Guy Gardner gender confusion. For such an exaggerated male character to be in a female body it creates interesting tension.I applaud the attempts to try new thingsbut maybe too much going on.
It's like an officially sanctioned Justice League parody. Every character is a caricature of the original with lots of puns involved. I especially liked the Starro story.
Does not make much senseThere's no background explained hereA poor volume one.
the justice league is thrown forth in time 1000 years. superman has a god complex. no one remembers supergirl from before. need i say more?
Public library copy.
A bit confusing but fun with some adult humor.
Bright, fun, but really confusing even though I have read Justice League 3000.
On paper this should be a laugh riot, but the jokes all fell flat and the art didn't help their cause.And for a comedy, that's tragic.
