What You Need to Know:

The Justice League continues to have major problems one after the other. But footage of a major Justice League failure ends up on an extremist website, going viral across social media and is probably the biggest problem on every member’s mind right now.

 

In This Issue:

“Which Hunt” Committee Chamber, U.S. House of Representative. Congresswoman Hasgrove addresses representatives about her distrust and distain for the Justice League, making some great points about how villain can’t really be tried just because a vigilante—like Superman, who is being sworn in to vouch for the League—says so. But later that night, “Batman” is seen not only causing a car crash, but murdering the Congresswoman!

“Leaders” Woods Near Bristol, NJ. Nightwing and Bruce are together in the snowy woods when Nighwing tries to discuss the situation with Bruce. Bruce seems uninterested with this fake “Batman” and Dick’s pleas to help but more importantly, he’s understanding that there is more to the situation. Bruce abruptly leaves to the Justice League who need his help.

“The Speech” Near the Shandong Peninsula. Led by Aquaman, the team tries to help a submarine and stop submersible drones, causing a racket in the Ocean King’s territory. But the League struggles as Bruce makes it clear that the League cannot get involved and must make it a government issue. Causing a rift among the members, Aquaman decides to take matters into his own hands while Wonder Woman continues to question not only the League’s intentions, but perhaps Bruce’s as well.

“Die Kunst der Diplomatie” FGS Bayern, Yellow Sea. Once each member has their moment, it’s the Germans who help negotiate the truce. The League saves face, but decides that perhaps it’s time for Superman to have a talk with their Leader. At the Watchtower, Batman has found his copycat killer and refuses the help of the League, leaving Jessica Cruz and Wonder Woman more in shock.

Carbon” East St. Louis. A clearly disguised Bruce enters a dive bar only to be taken by surprise by his “biggest fan”, who is dressed just like Batman.

Summary
The points of the congresswoman at the beginning of this issue set the tone. It’s going to be a rough one, not just physically but mentally. It is the perfect way to really get the team to start to break apart with some clearly on Bruce’s side and some not. It all goes back to the age-old question some people have with Superhero’s: Should They, or Shouldn’t They? It’s also interesting to see how the team feels and their reasoning’s without breaking their character’s like some other comics have done. And it more importantly gets the reader thinking.
