Justice: With a Dash of Everything.

After being introduced to the JLI in Justice League: Generation Lost, this was one of the books I was most excited for. And it didn't disappoint me. 
 
The Good 
This is a fresh start for the JLI so anyone can jump on board. Booster Gold Might have been chosen as leader because the U.N. thought they could control him but Batman knows better and supports Booster. And Booster doesn't disappoint. He immediately starts acting like a responsible leader, directing everybody on strategies and formations into teams before they are interrupted. I also laughed at the part when Booster asks Batman in the U.N. knew he was here and he replies, "I've always enjoyed your sense of humor Booster." We also get to see the personalities of the team, ranging from Guy's stubbornness to Rocket Red's stereotypical Russian attitude, but hey, that's why we love him. He makes it work. This is an excellent team that is far from being in perfect sync but it gives us plenty of character development for them. 
 
The Bad 
Blue Beetle is dismissed by the U.N. as being too "inexperienced." Hopefully we'll see him on the team someday after his book gets a firm standing. 
 
Verdict 
This is great for anyone who wants something different or looking for characters of different cultures. This team has something to prove to the world and to themselves that they can function properly. Can't wait for issue #2! 
 
Mystery Woman Hunt 
The mystery woman present when Barry "fixed" the universe is on page 8 panel 1.

    This is the first of the 'New 52' I have read...THE GOODI liked this issue. Dan Jurgens has always kept me entertained with his writing. I thought the introduction of team members as part of the story was clever. I liked the exchange between Booster Gold and the UN representative, when he first arrives. I have been a fan of Aaron Lopresti's work for years, and this is no exception. Lopresti's work is complemented greatly by Hi-Fi's coloring. I really like the group of characters selected as well...

    Justice League International is starting a new along with other titles from DC. While other very little changes, but this titles starts from the beginning. Does it give readers what they want?  THE GOOD: I really liked the art. I knew Arron Lopresti from Wonder Woman and I was excited to see him penciling more DC titles. The story is pretty good. I really liked the characters meeting and I was super excited after looking at the first page (Don't be. Half of the characters don't appear) I liked G...
