    A very straight forward let's have all the bad guys team up to take out the JLA just because they are evil. Green Arrow and Black Canary are finally tying the knot and tonight's their bachelor / bachelorette parties. Seems like a good time for the Injustice League to attack. The book is very straight-forward and basic, but isn't that what we seek out in comics, a big slugfest between all the good guys and bad guys?

    Well this was my first read of 2015, and although it was a third volume, I don’t think I missed a lot by reading this first. Maybe I did, but I felt like THE INJUSTICE LEAGUE was fine on its own. So we have Lex being Lex Luthor in all his evil-y goodness, and because I watched the TV show, I felt like I knew where this was going...but this comic was so much more darker than the TV show ever could be, and I was very happy about that.

Maybe I did, but I felt like THE INJUSTICE LEAGUE was fine on its own. So we have Lex being Lex Luthor in all his evil-y goodness, and because I watched the TV show, I felt like I knew where this was going...but this comic was so much more darker than the TV show ever could be, and I was very happy about that. He’s bringing all the bad guys back together to take over the [political] world, but like in the TV show, he seems to have issues controlling that much evil when they’re all together. Somehow Lex manages it enough to really mess with with Justice League’s day. But, the Justice League has Batman...so, I knew that Luthor was going to lose. It felt really close though. I think it’s because Luthor had the Joker, and that freaking fucker is always causing Batman bad days. Now, with my newness to this universe, there were a lot of heroes and villains that I didn’t know by name or even recognize. I tried, but there were some that I just couldn’t place at all. Hopefully after reading more comics, these colorful characters will all become more developed, so I’m excited about delving further into DC’s world. Oh, my favorite Green Lantern was in this comic. I love John. He’s wonderful. And the best. This review isn’t very good, but the comic was, and I’m definitely going to look into the other volumes to see what I’ve missed and what’s to come.

    I guess this is what was happening behind the scenes before Green Arrow/Black Canary: The Wedding. It's not a bad way to pass the time, but I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it, either. Hardcore DC fans will probably really like it. I guess this is what was happening behind the scenes before Green Arrow/Black Canary: The Wedding.

    "There's some nice characterization in the first issue, featuring Ollie's bachelor party, but that quickly fades away to three issues of stupid super-villain plot. Sadly, the bonus features, on Tangent and Red Arrow, are considerably more interesting than the main feature."

    This was like watching the Justice League cartoon. Fun and easy but nothing that'll stick. So I guess after the backlash of identity crisis/tornado's path (I love both) they decided we needed to make this one more cheerful. Black Canary and Green arrow about to get married. Their friends gather around to see this and BAM the Injustice League begins to attack. First going after Firestorm and nearly killing him and then attacking everyone one by one.

Their friends gather around to see this and BAM the Injustice League begins to attack. First going after Firestorm and nearly killing him and then attacking everyone one by one. In a chase to see who will get the upper-hand on who first the Justice league will have to face all their greatest villains! Good: The humor is pretty good. I really enjoy Batman in here because he's not such as sour puss. I also enjoyed watching everyone team up. Most people got to shine, especially Black Canary, red arrow, Jon as green lantern, and even firestorm. The two short stories in the back, while not amazing, serve as fun little stories as well. Bad: The art isn't horrible but my gosh is it there to show off asses. I mean, not that I'm completely complaining. I love to see Black Canary and Wonder Woman's asses but still, it's like every single pose has their ass just popping out. And Diana's suit is like riding up her crotch extra hard here. Was little obvious. Also the villains ideas of taking over are just that, taking over. The grand scheme felt like a cartoon episode. Overall while fun and enjoyable it lacked any real punch. However, in-between other books I'm reading this run might serve as a fun old school superhero romp between the more mature or dark tales. A 3 out of 5.

    I like the Justice League. With its frequent roster rotation, who's exactly in the league changes from year to year, but I like it best when the "big guns" are there. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, some kind of Green Lantern, Flash, etc.. As of spring 2011, the roster's quite a bit weaker than that, so I've been going back and reading some of the stories that have been collected in Trade Paperbacks. A recent favorite is a four-issue story from Dwayne McDuffie and Ed Benes: Justice League of Ame I like the Justice League.

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, some kind of Green Lantern, Flash, etc.. As of spring 2011, the roster's quite a bit weaker than that, so I've been going back and reading some of the stories that have been collected in Trade Paperbacks. A recent favorite is a four-issue story from Dwayne McDuffie and Ed Benes: Justice League of America: The Injustice League. This is a high octane Justice League, featuring classic members Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Black Canary, Red Arrow, Hawkgirl, Black Lightning, Vixen, and Red Tornado. In the midst of bachelor and bachelorette parties for Green Arrow and Black Canary, a new Injustice League Unlimited strikes, attacking Firestorm, Hawkgirl, Wonder Woman and others. A superpowered group of villains like the old Superfriends' Legion of Doom, the Injustice League Unlimited is a who's who of DC Comics' villains: Lex Luthor, Joker, Cheetah, Captain Cold, Dr. Light, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, Giganta, Bizarro, Killer Frost, Shadow Thief, Black Manta...this organization shares many members with the old Legion of Doom, and it's pretty clear that the late McDuffie set this up as an ultimate episode of Challenge of the Superfriends. This Injustice League meets at a Hall of Doom that looks like Darth Vader's helmet in a swamp, Luthor's wearing his green armor, and their multi-pronged attacks against the heroes all ring true to my favorite Superfriends series. This book relies on you knowing some of the interpersonal relationships and the superpowers of some of the B-list superheroes, like Red Arrow and Hawkgirl, and the animal-power channeling Vixen. But most of it is straightforward, and it's an easy and fast read. The artwork by Ed Benes is clean and consistent, and even though there's a lot of fisticuffs in this book, none of it is as graphic as some other similar books from this team have been. There are some very cool moments here, and some shocking ones, like a line that Black Canary uses on Giganta, and Batman upstaging all his super(powered) friends. The ultimate solution to the problem of the supervillains comes from an unexpected source, and launches into a new miniseries. I've already read that one, and it's not necessary to enjoy this arc, but it's still fun. If you're a fan of the Justice League, but more especially of the old Challenge of the Superfriends, you'll enjoy The Injustice League. There are some unnecessary and confusing "bonus stories" at the end of the book, including a prequel to Tangent: Superman's Reign and another one starring Red Arrow, Soup Kitchen. They're included as a bonus, but you're better off closing the book once the Injustice League story wraps up.

    This hit the spot like a bottle of Coke on a humid summer afternoon. Didn't read the previous volumes? No problem. A reader with a casual knowledge of the JLA can jump right into the action. It had snappy dialogue, attractive artwork, and a straight-forward lean and mean story. Even the two short stories that round out the edition were pretty good. Recommended for those who don't require a deep, life-changing experience but just want an entertaining heroes vs. villains book. This hit the spot like a bottle of Coke on a humid summer afternoon.

    Now this is what I expected out of a good Justice League book. The book had lots of action and fun scenes with all my favorite heroes and villains duking it out. I love how the villains are starting to get more and more organized (by putting off their petty differences to work together and beat the JLA). The Green Arrow and Black Canary storyline is also a nice addition to all the action.

The Green Arrow and Black Canary storyline is also a nice addition to all the action. I have to say that my favorite thing about the JLA volumes so far (particularly this one) is the great use of so many characters, that are not considered major in the DC world, playing such a major and important role. We get to be introduced to the personalities and characters of Black Lightning, Red Tornado, Red Arrow, and others and I am totally digging that. Cheers.

    There’s a lineup of heroes and villains that’s a ball. Unfortunately we don’t get to see as much action and 1 v 1’s as I hoped for. It’s very weird to see that Identity Crisis was canon and everyone (rightfully so) hates Dr. Light. It also betrays it when Superman states, “Start by being honest with your teammates.” I actually enjoyed this quick as it was. I skimmed the extra stories after Injustice League wrapped up.

The art for the first chapter wasn’t too much to my liking; however it kicked up after that. Womanly figures abound and I don’t think I’ve said this before but Wonder Woman was hot. A lot of the female super heroes have some interesting proportions and I’m not complaining about it in this one. It’s definitely in your face, though. The poses are extravagant and dialogued lined with just enough sexual provocation that it’s probably too much. C’mon man. This is definitely not the best of DC’s best. It’s a fun comic that features a lot of my favorite DC villains and heroes, some recognized and some not. Fatality was one I did not recognize. She’s a yellow lantern armed with a glaive. This is the fun that is missing out of comics these days. Some don’t know how to let loose. Plot is important and I’m a big advocate on a comic with a good story, but for someone like DC to try and get great stories out of everything seems like a wasted effort. The comic ends on an important note and amongst the fighting are obvious intentions for later such as Red Tornado’s dialogue. Good not great. Fun not boring. Sexy….Maybe too sexy.

    Dwayne McDuffie throws a ton of villains against the Justice League and sadly underwhelms. For the big ideas to work here, the story needed more time. It felt very rushed. Dozens of villains are shown and then a handful are impactful. The resolution was way too easy to come to. Add to that the very ridiculous bachelor/ette parties and the book suffered more than it should. The art was good and there are some great moments but it never had a chance to develop.

    This one does exactly what it says on the tin, and it does so quite competently. The Injustice League crashes the engagement parties for Green Arrow and Black Canary, summoning the Justice League into action. Dwayne McDuffie writes a very accessible story with a lot of characters, recalling his great work on /Justice League Unlimited/. For some reason, this book also collects the first issue of the JLA crossover with Tangent Comics, which feels out of place.

    A disappointing shift in tone from Meltzer's run. The serious and realistic feel of the characters is sadly missing from McDuffie's JLA. The plot felt very odd and scatteted, and by the time it was over I didn't see the purpose of it all. It holds no wait like the previous two volumes and McDuffie does little to expand on the plot points Meltzer left in his final issue. A disappointing shift in tone from Meltzer's run.

    This is a fairly to the point storyline, that borrows from one of DC Comics' favorite recycled plots: the villains work together to beat all the heroes. This is the third version of this plot I have read. While "The Injustice Gang" from JLA, Vol. 2 was an interesting prologue to the legendary story "Rock of Ages," I feel the story in this book gave "The Injustice League" a lot more believability and tactic to work with against the heroes.

It also takes place during the lead-up of the marriage between Green Arrow & Black Canary. The best thing about this book was the dialogue, which was amazing and what you came to expect from the late legend Dwayne McDuffie. The worst thing about this book was the person editing it (we just can't have nice things). Also one has to remember that his run on Justice League is infamous for the level of executive meddling that occurred throughout it. I wish I could find his direct words on the entire run that he talked about before he died, but here is his statement on this story:" I’d originally intended for that story to run 8 issues, but it had to be cut short for Suicide Run, so I made up a new secret Luthor plot that tied into the dangling Per Degaton plot from Brad’s run, but it turned out that Geoff already had plans to wrap that up, so I’ve come up with a third Luthor plot, but I’m not sure when I’ll get back to it, as I’m fairly tightly plotted for the next couple of years. I will get to it though, promise."So yeah, the book does not live up to what it could have been, but that was of no fault of McDuffie. In the end, I think the ultimate DC Comics villain team-up is Jim Krueger's & Alex Ross's Justice, but this is a decent runner-up which could have been the best if its writer was allowed the creative control he deserved.

    I'm amazed how lenient some reviewers have been with this offering. Sure, the outstanding art warrants a star and there are a few great moments of dialogue between characters (reminiscent of the classic Len Wein/Dick Dillin books of the 70s or Giffen/DeMattieis/MacGuire books of the 80s) which could be worth a second star but the absolute absence of any significant story makes this volume a mere trifle.

And with the main story only occupying some 100 pages of the volume (the remaining pages being filled with a short Red Arrow standalone and the dangling start of a completely different story line, plus numerous black filler pages to keep the left/right orientation in place), this qualifies as an insignificant trifle. I'd guess the reason DC initially released this as a hardcover is that nobody would pay the $20 cover price for a 100-page comic book. And then there's the issue of major characters pictured on the cover who play no role whatsoever in the actual book. Where's Two Face? Where's Scarecrow? Where's Solomon Grundy? Where's Bizarro? Besides dangling right next to the cover logo, he's a no-show inside the actual book. The story conveniently omits the characters that would actually make the confrontation between the two forces intriguing, instead opting for shallow cop outs where heavy hitters such as Superman, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman are taken out with relative ease by villains way below their league. Then major league villains such as Deathstroke simply run away at the start of the big end battle. This is the sort of book that you might take all of 15-20 minutes to read and you'd still regret wasting that time afterwards.

We've seen this plot before, and so has he, and while showing off how good a writer he is, he doesn't hide the feeling that he wants to do something different.

    This wasn't a very memorable story, and I feel like it could have been way better than it was. It had so much potential!

    All the negative reviews say this book had a cream puff story line. The thing is, it's a delicious cream puff. Dwayne McDuffie crafts wonderful dialogue--you can't help but love his Joker, Lex Luthor, Black Lightning, and Batman. And the art is pretty nifty, standard superhero stuff. The goal of the Injustice Gang is nebulous and the tactics of dozens of villains against a handful of heroes make little sense--many of the Gang members seem to only occupy the background of splash pages.

    I picked this up at the library because I typically like stories about a lot of villains teaming together against the good guys. I did not, however, know anything about what was going on in the storyline at the time of its original release. It was an OK read, but it lacked heart. It produced little to no emotion in me, and I wasn't caught up in the story with care for the protagonists. At least the Joker was awesome.

    A decent concept with some great art, but the story could (should) have definitely been a bit longer and involved more villains. Half of those pictured on the wraparound cover weren't even in the story. It does come with a couple of bonus short stories, however, unless you really know all the different story lines that are going on around this story they can be quite confusing. Good, but not great.

    This was brutal and fun if a bit formulaic. But if the formula works I guess it's okay to repeat it. Though I (REALLY) enjoy women with extremely large breasts, some of the angles and cleavage shots in this book are pretty ridiculous (and gravity defying). If there were really super-heroines that were built like this they wouldn't have to fight the bad guys. They could just stand there and the villains would be so distracted they would forget to protect themselves. This was brutal and fun if a bit formulaic.

    What a bunch of crap. Ed Benes is apparently too busy perfecting Black Canary, Vixen, and Wonder Woman's behinds to even attempt to draw any backgrounds (at least fill in artist Joe Benitez tries to pop in walls and desks behind the gals' supersound roundness). The story is 1980s era fisticuffs replete with molecule thin layers of characterization and dull dialogue. What a bunch of crap.

    Yeah, I don't know. Loved the artwork in this one, and the danger oozing off the pages...but it didn't deliver. All the grand plans, the great baddies, and the devious plots and traps, and the heroes win in an easy handful of pages that required only one fellow to get a grasp on his superpowers to make a difference. Had potential, didn't deliver. Yeah, I don't know. Loved the artwork in this one, and the danger oozing off the pages...but it didn't deliver.

    Really not much going on here. All the super villains get together, hatch a plan to take over the world, and *SPOILER ALERT* get thwarted by the good guys. Granted this is part of a bigger story arc, but still. Also shows how far DC has fallen behind Marvel in terms of characters and story.

    Would have rated higher, because I love McDuffie's characterization and this feels SO MUCH like the Justice League cartoon I grew up with, but...Benes. His art, especially the hyper-sexualization of the heroines, is godawful and works hard to tank McDuffie's otherwise enjoyable work.
