Per Identity Crisis, by Brad Meltzer.
I would strongly prefer his run on Justice League to Identity Crisis. It is about the same number of books and is a trade.
His first arc was great, introducing the various members, including Red Tornado, which was very touching, in his quest for humanity.
His team was more varied than any other version of Justice League, including four women, one of whom was chair, two black members, Vixen and Black Lightning, and two younger members, Red Arrow and Hawk girl. Yet there was a sense of legacy, with the Trinity and Hal Jordan as Green Lantern.
It helps if your first comic book has characters who represent you in some way.
If you google Identity Crisis, you will find many people hate it.
Also a great deal of the pathos is the identity of the victim, Sue Digby. If this is your first comic book, all that is lost.
The crimes Sue endured is not suitable for the young, nor for many women. Remember we are holding this up as a representative comic book, a good comic book.
There are many deaths, including a father.
Some aspects of the book, like Deathstroke versus the League and what the villain carried to cover tracks, are absurd.
When the final books are selected, there has to be categories for teen readers and younger. I could read any comic books when I was young. Then horror comics came back, and villains killed people rather than robbed banks, for no reason, except they could…
Watchmen, Batman Year One, Dark Night Returns are great, but they are violent and mired in the dark parts of the real world. Over 16 fine, college students, of course. But 12 and below, and the parents wanting to introduce their child to DC, not appropriate.
