Justice League Comics #35 Review

Whats goin on guys, welcome to comic island, my name is joey and today we are reviewing and recapping Justice League issue 35. So I thought the issue was great but I can’t help but feel that these few issues are like a prequel to the coming threat of the Anti-Monitor, whom we see at the conclusion to forever evil. Every single issue since forever evil has alluded to a growing threat that only Luthor seems to be taking seriously. Right now the Justice League seems to be busy trying to catch Lex in the act. Obviously Luthor is a high profile villain from the Justice Leagues point of view but aren’t there other crisis that the League can occupy themselves with? Do they really need the whole team at the press conference? Remember when the Doom Patrol was around? That story arc seems to be unfinished. I thought that the Chief and Lex had good chemistry. But we haven’t heard from the Doom Patrol ever since, and what about Owlman’s appearance at the end of last issue?

Ok so that’s all the problems I have with Justice League as a whole. Let’s get into the good parts of this issue. I really enjoyed when Luthor Takes Wayne on a tour of his private facilities. Notice how Luthor refers to the superman clone as Bizarro? Please correct me if im wrong but why would Luthor calls him Bizzaro? If you are a fan of the pre new 52 dc universe then we know who Bizzaro is but this is the new 52 and that creature was a clone of superman code named B-zero. I hope Luthor grows another clone because Bizzaro was one of the best things about Forever Evil.

Ok so the action was kept to a minimal in this issue but the I love the intellectual battle between Luthor and Wayne at the press conference. I think this is my favourite part of this issue. The crowd loves Luthor after his speech but then Batman always have to appear to be a badass. Batman regains the crowd’s admiration at the end. But take a look at Luthors face. He knew he lost. I love these little intellectual battles between luthor and wayne.

So later on, Luthor brings up the fact that Batman has gone through so many different robins, basically sucker punching batman with how he has such a dysfunctional family. Batman has nothing clever to say on this part so the score is Bruce Wayne, 1 and Lex Luthor 1.

Alright so we are introduced to neutron, a mercenary hired to kill Luthor. So this raises the question: who wants Luthor dead? This is a tough one since I bet he has made tons of enemies throughout his career.

We are also introduced to Lena Luthor. I can’t say much about her relevance to the story so we got to wait and see what kind of role she will play in the overall story arc.

Ok so the cliff-hanger ending is a very controversial subject since right now, the world is dealing with the ebola virus. I don’t know if Geoff johns had this in mind when he wrote this arc. The timing seems very strange. I would normally go onto details on the amazo android that we knew from the justice league unlimited tv series but now I’m actually concerned. I really hope the CDC figures a way to cure the ebola and I hope this amazo virus concept gets swept under the rug in the next few issues.
