Read issues 1-5 of the below series to see Catwoman in action with the World's Most Dangerous Super Heroes:
Discuss whatever comes to mind about this story, and in particular what you think of Catwoman as a member of the Justice League of America. Is she out or her league, or is she standing shoulder to shoulder with other legends on a level she was always meant to be at?
I hope you enjoy this quick, easy, micro-read heroes and that you enjoy (or enjoyed) The Batman as well. Viva Catwoman and the Justice League!
I did my re-read on DCUI as well, because unlike Kindle Comics Comixology, I can read books from DCUI on a nice-size computer monitor, easy-peasy.
Of course, we used to be able to read books from Comixology on a computer monitor easy-peasy, but that was before the dark times. Before the Kindle Comics era.
Agreed, and with extra emphasis on Stargirl. This was a good book for Court to make her New 52 debut in.
Bonus Q: Which is the better New 52 title to star Stargirl, this one (JLA) or Justice League United?
I really enjoy both (although JLU kind of hit the skids in the DC You era), so I don’t have a solid, definitive preference.
JLA is nifty because it’s written by Geoff Johns (who created Courtney Whitmore), while JLU is cool because its a Canadian Justice League, and that it also starred characters from this series (Stargirl, Green Arrow, Hawkman). Oh, and Adam Strange was in JLU too, so you know…tons of Cool Points to Justice League United for that, mmhmm.
Artistically-speaking, I have to side with JLA, especially when it comes to the issues for this reading. David Finch is one of my top three fav comic artists ever, so when he’s on a book, I’m there and absolutely rooting for him.
IDK…I kind of liked it.
As for how Catwoman functioned on the team, that worked nicely. Selina is the last to admit she’d ever work well on any kind of Justice League team, let alone a government-backed one, but by Rao, she stuck the landing and then some with this JL.
I’d like to see Catwoman on another JL team at some point (maybe after Dark Crisis? ), and in a position of command. I don’t think she’s ever really led a Justice League-level team before, so seeing a thief with a heart of gold in charge (on some level) of The World’s Greatest Super Heroes™ would add a new dimension to her character, and create several interesting new things to do with her, I feel.
SN: One of my favorite characters in this entire series is Vibe. While I like his original iteration best, the New 52 take was fun and featured a pretty snazzy updated costume to boot.
I thought Catwoman worked well with this team. She helped with the mission even if they didn’t capture many of the villains. Vibe was more interesting than the version I remember from Justice League Detroit. I wish Steve wasn’t so easily manipulated by Waller, but maybe subsequent issues show he is more savvy.
Its not Bizarro and Catwoman, but close enough. Give 'er a read (if you haven’t already) and LMK what you think.
Ha! When even Superman can’t figure it out, Bizarro should just say “Okay, fine. I tried the backwards speak thing, and it just confused people. So, you know what? I’ll just talk like a normal person from now on. I’ll still do my backwards Superman thing naturally, but I’ll now speak in a manner so people can actually make sense of what I’m saying.”
BTW, what book is that screenshot from? It looks very familiar…
Hurray for your re-opened theater!
Whenever you do see The Batman, do so on the biggest screen and with the best sound system (especially Dolby Atmos, should you have a theater equipped with it). If you need to kick in a few extra bones for a higher-quality presentation, do it, as you’ll be glad you did.
