Justice League of America #2


Comics Friday "Power and Glory Part Two" by Bryan Hitch, Daniel Henriques, Andrew Currie, and Alex Sinclair.

The God of Rao supposedly shows up on Earth. Superman buys into it immediately, Batman is of course skeptical. Down in Atlantis, a Prophet of Rao has arrived, but Aquaman is equally skeptical, if not downright mocking:


I thought the last issue of JLA was pretty formula in terms of how Aquaman was written, but I liked this segment much more. The Sea King just isn't buying what this supposed prophet is selling, but secure enough that he doesn't feel threatened or even try to talk the guy out of preaching to the citizens of Atlantis. I've always thought that was the hallmark of someone truly secure in their beliefs, that they didn't so much oppose what others think, rather they just don't care one way or the other. Still a bit frustrated that Aquaman is only getting two pages per issue, but we're still very early in the series' run. Two pages of Classic Aquaman is better than none!

All this flippancy however will probably end up biting Aquaman in the rear, because the issue ends with Wonder Woman waking up to an Olympus that is nothing but floating debris, which I bet is what is in store for Atlantis. (Of course, that would be okay in my book, I want Aquaman to back to Amnesty Bay ASAP and forget all those whiny Atlanteans).

To be continued!

I didn't mind this issue too much, although it does feel a bit like Star Trek 5 or an episode of Twilight Zone.
WTF is up with the Teen Titans Go variant. That was the only issue so I had to buy it, and I hate it.
