    Justice League, Part Two last edited by Darkside_of_the_Sun on 05/12/20 09:16AM View full history

    What happens when the World's Greatest Detective takes on the world's most powerful alien? You'll find out when Batman and Superman throw down. Batman will need all his intellect, cunning and physical prowess to take on The Man of Steel.

    At the Central City crime lab, Barry Allen draws close to solving the case of a husband and father murdered in the parking lot of his office. However, Director Singh has other orders for him. At the directive of the Chief of Police, all police resources have been allocated to discovering the true identity of the Flash, a costumed vigilante with superhuman speed.

    Meanwhile, in Metropolis, Batman has emptied his utility belt fighting Superman and there is still no stopping the Kryptonian. Superman believes that Batman and Green Lantern are somehow tied to the alien invaders, who carried a box identical to the one Batman brought from Gotham. Green Lantern rejoins the fight, but he knows they’ll need backup.

    Green Lantern has previously joined forces with the Flash, most recently to save Central City from a talking gorilla. He knows that the Flash and Barry Allen are one and the same, and the Flash knows that he is Hal Jordan. Green Lantern calls upon the Flash now, knowing they can’t defend themselves from Superman without him.

    In an instant, the Flash runs from Central City to Metropolis. He’s the fastest man alive, faster even than Superman. Still, Superman’s speed is enough to land a blow on him, much to Flash’s surprise.

    Even though Superman bests him, the Flash has still distracted him long enough for Batman to reason with the Kryptonian. The Flash does his best to clean up the collateral damage, but Metropolis police soon arrive, driving the four vigilantes into the sewers.

    While the four seek safe harbor to study the box from Gotham, its twin from Metropolis arrives in a S.T.A.R. Labs facility in Detroit. Though they’ve made little progress, they discover that the box is broadcasting some kind of signal. Similar signals are being broadcast from New England, the District of Columbia, Central City, Coast City; all areas of meta-human activity.

    As a leading scientist in the study of the meta-human presence, Dr. Silas Stone heads off the research. He is interrupted by a visit from his son, Vic, who is upset that his father missed yet another game. Stone argues that his work is about to make his son’s abilities obsolete, and Vic is crushed.

    Just then, the boxes activate. Simultaneously, in Metropolis and in Detroit, their pinging increases in speed. They begin to glow, generating massive amounts of energy. With a reality-warping BOOM! each tears open an inter-dimensional portal, through which pour hordes of monstrous alien soldiers.

    In Detroit, Vic Stone gets caught in the portal’s energy, and his body quickly burns away before his father’s eyes...

    Can't We All Just Get Along? 0

    The Story: The fight between Superman, Batman and Green Lantern continues resulting in Green Lantern calling Flash to come help him. Afterwards, the four begin to deduce what the mysterious box is when a swarm of parademons boom through it. My Thoughts:The long awaited second issue finally arrives. For some reason this series was delayed. Hopefully we won't have that issue occurring again. I sort of felt like there was a little bit of false advertisement concerning this issue. They claimed it wa...

    I am never a big fan of the hero against hero fights but it seems lately that I am increasingly running across examples that I like.  In this case, the first meeting of certain characters I suppose it makes sense and as this forms the majority of the issue it really has to make make this issue succeed.  It does though as the melee between Superman, Batman and Green Lantern gets an outside hand as Flash interjects to try to slow down Superman.  For issues such as this which depend so much on thei...

    The Blockbuster release of Justice League #1 was an amazing event. Does Justice League #2 keep the characters and the plot going while adding more into the mix? I does and it does it extremely well.  THE GOOD: Jim Lee is on art duties so you should expect amazing work. Jim Lee makes his characters sketchy but clean and also gives you so much detail that you would pay 3.99 just for the book with his art. But the story makes the book worth a lot too. Geoff John is sculpting a story that will get a...
