    Despite the implied silliness this book entails, the stories are gripping and holds you until the very end.

    So I thought tho was a stand alone book on what happened with Max Lord after he was reborn after Blackest Night. As it turns out it's the first volume, should have figured when I saw 'Volume 1' on the cover...idiot! Anyway, this was surprisingly good. Winnick uses this clan of second string characters amazingly. He makes great use out of flashbacks to push characters into the limelight. Captain Atom's focused issue was one of my favourites. I had no idea his powers went to those extremes. I actua So I thought tho was a stand alone book on what happened with Max Lord after he was reborn after Blackest Night.

Winnick uses this clan of second string characters amazingly. He makes great use out of flashbacks to push characters into the limelight. Captain Atom's focused issue was one of my favourites. I had no idea his powers went to those extremes. I actually felt something for his struggle to feel human. Tora's backstory was also pretty emotional and really made me enjoy her character more. I was always a big Booster Gold fan, but his flashbacks were a welcome treat as well. And on top of everything the tie into Kingdom Come was incredible. I love that book so much as to have it worked in here was pure genius. I have to pick up the next volume to find out how it all works out for them. Not sure how long Winnicks JL series ran for, but I hope it keeps up the steam he's built up here. If your looking for a Justice League story without the trinity, or for any main Leaguers, then give this a go. Great art and intriguing writing makes this a good ride!

    This is a straightforward miniseries that reunites, in the course of 24 issues (that's two volumes in the collected form), reunites former Justice League International teammates Booster Gold, Fire, Ice, and Captain Atom. They are joined by the newest Blue Beetle and Rocket Red in a search for Maxwell Lord, hampered by the fact that Lord's mind-control abilities make the team the only ones that even remember that he exists!

    My first Justice League was Grant Morrison's JLA. And I was aware of a league of 3 stringers that came before and that it was a goofy series. Once I got around to reading it, JLI actually became my favorite team(s). It WAS goofy and too funny of a series. Geoff John's Booster Gold, including in the '52' series, was great. So I'm a fan of all this.

The bad: the part that no one believes the team, or knows who Maxwell Lord is got annoying, and too drawn out. Nothing went right for the heroes, But yet, it was still an entertaining read. You throw in a tie-in of Captain Atom and Kingdom Come. Another story of Cap Atom in the future. And that same goofy wordy dialogue that was so common in the original series. And this becomes a series Iv been waiting for.

Luckily with the DC Universe App I was able to finally experience this incredible adventure issue by issue. The very premise of Max Lord mind wiping the entire planet into forgetting him is just the tip of the iceberg for this block buster action movie. We also get glimpses of post apocalyptic futures thanks to Captain Atom. A character that I greatly enjoyed in this story. Max Lord is the charismatic villain that is always one step ahead of the underdog heroes in Justice League International. Each member brings something to the story. The only fault this story has comes after issue 15. And it's really no fault of Winick and Giffen because it's due to something outside of their control. Prior to the New 52 reboot; Wonder Woman had a revamped story arc due to magic and alternate timelines. Where Paradise Island had been destroyed and Amazons were sort of hidden in America, with WW growing up an orphan in New York. So the whole world has suddenly never heard of her and there's no physical evidence of her existence. This revamp happened in the middle of Generation Lost's run so its ramifications sort of had to be shoe horned into the story. Which was a shame because WW is a big part of Max's end game. Winick made it work but it was still something that undercut the story. Still loved it.

    This was really good, I really didn’t know what to expect when I started this. So Max Lord is back from the dead after the events of blackest night, he mind wipes the entire world into forgetting who he is except for a handful of members of the JLI. I don’t know much about the JLI outside of these characters appearing in Justice League Unlimited as mostly background characters and that Captain Atom was the blueprint for Doctor Manhattan. This book does a good job at introducing these characters This was really good, I really didn’t know what to expect when I started this.

    Judd Winick is the perfect writer for this book. He writes fun comics no matter how serious the subject. Here, the ragtag group from JLI is brought together for an enormous mission. I loved plot and the script. He has a really good grasp on these characters and their dynamic. The art, by multiple artists is done well. The book is obviously too long. Twelve issues and we're only halfway done. This was a great reintroduction to Maxwell Lord and his ongoing schemes. Overall, an overly long but supe Judd Winick is the perfect writer for this book.

    I liked this a lot better than the others I've been reading. It was a lot easier to follow and was really interesting. The art was great. I have to admit, I love Booster Gold, and this comic was a pretty amazing portrayal of him, imo. I liked this a lot better than the others I've been reading.

Which translates to mean: Why yes I was mostly bored. The comic series in question is the twenty four issue bi weekly comic series from DC, a spin-off from the phenomenally successful Blackest Night crossover, mixed with one last kick at the can for the Bwahaha funny Justice League. During Blackest Night, the dead rose all around the DC universe and chaos reined, with a byproduct being the vile villain Maxwell Lord regaining his life. This rich, manipulative, powerful man is intent on doing nasty things, and getting vengeance on Wonder Woman, the hero who killed him. Max has no moral center, firmly believes he is in the right, and considers all other collateral damage. With an international manhunt in full swing, Max uses his mind pushing powers, which cause nasty nosebleeds, to make everyone across the globe forget he exists. But one group of heroes, who were so close to the epicenter of this brainwashing that they became immune, remember Lord. So he goes about discrediting them, all while moving his chess pieces around. These heroes, Booster Gold, Fire, Ice, Captain Atom, become the vanguards of truth, and are shortly joined by the new Blue Beetle and the really new Rocket Red. The series have this team follow Lord around, dodge his death traps, try to avoid his smears, and have all the other heroes think they are nuts. Numerous guest stars, from Batman to the Metal Men to Power Girl pop up, some in more then one time period, and some more interesting than others. The series started with Keith Giffen and Judd Winick as the storytellers, but Giffen quickly exits early on. My geek senses have consumed a metric ton of Giffen work over the decades, while I have had virtually no experience with Winick al all. To say that Winick can be polarizing is an understatement, with many saying he is an okay writer at best. And this comic puts me heavily in that camp. While the story begins, it is exciting and intriguing and pops with an interesting premise. Everything is set-up quickly and efficiently, and I dug every page of it. But than Giffen departs after issue six. And the book becomes whatever. Early promise is frittered away and my reading becomes routine. Supposedly shocking character changes made no sense, looking at you Ice, and some just muddy up heroes who still haven’t healed from their last time being kicked around, looking at you Captain Atom. I get the feeling that DC wanted this to be a tent pole series, with all sorts of major developments occurring, spinning into the rest of DC Universe. That never happened. The ending falls flat, mostly because The New 52 was about steam role everything here out of continuity. My spider-sense tells me Justice League: Generation Lost underperformed both creatively and commercially, so they walked away and just let it run through it’s motions. Which is shame. Such a great idea, with some okay characters, just goes on and on to become mundane at best. If only the juggernaut that is Giffen stayed. Now THAT would have been a series.

    This is probably the best story-arc to spin out of that monstrosity known as "Brightest Day". Max Lord, one of the most sinister villains in the DCU, mostly because he thinks he is one of the good-guys, returns from the dead as a White Lantern, wipes the memories of almost everyone on earth, sparing only his ex-teammates, the JLI. Really beautifully storyboarded. Simple, classic, comicbook storytelling here. The whole plot is on a slow-boil to something hot and explosive.... something involving This is probably the best story-arc to spin out of that monstrosity known as "Brightest Day".

Hmmmmm... ;) The best feature of this collection is how the spotlight shifts from one JLI member to the next. We get a full dose of Booster Gold, while at the same time, we get a glimpse of the future with Captain Atom, and an amazing backstory for Ice. This is what I love about Winnick, he always brings the past to the forefront and uses it to explain future events, I love this approach to cause-and-effect, and no one else in the DC writers guild does it as well as him. What I think is lacking in this story is, well, the Justice League. Where is Starman and Donna Troy? They just dropped off the map all of a sudden? Congorilla? Jesse? They should somehow have been part of this story, in my opinion.

    Max Lord was never one of my favorite Justice League characters, and I'd lost track of him as I drifted away from DC Comics in general. Apparently he's been a Very Naughty Boy, and the Generation Lost series is all about his latest nefarious plan. I was a little dubious, but I loved most of the old JLI, so I gave the book a try. It's pretty good, mostly because it does get the band back together and recreate some of the feel of the old team.

Lots of big battles, not quite enough of the character moments. It also works well as a standalone story, which seems to be a rare thing in the overgrown continuity of the DC Universe. It's interesting enough to check out the second volume when the remaining issues are collected in October.

    I have to say, I'm surprised. I haven't been a huge fan of a lot of Winick's recent DC work, I hate Max Lord and what he's become in the new DCU, but this JLI vs. Max Lord has a great central concept, a really good handle on all the characters and some great action and story set-pieces throughout the DCU. Nice use of several characters and concepts I'm not generally a fan of, including the modernized Checkmate and Magog, and when you combine that with good writing and art on characters I *do* li I have to say, I'm surprised.

    Harris/Mettler covers were great. Chiang covers were cartoonish and made me want to cry. Plotting was clear and easy to follow for someone (me) unfamiliar with the characters. And, thankfully, after reading too-many disastrous new 52 layouts lately that make reading an interactive puzzle (not in a good way) the layouts in this book were dynamic and interesting while still being clear and logical.

    I know this is supposed to be the intro story for the new Justice League Intl reboot but it really became the Booster Gold show. Compelling story-telling for Keith Giffen and making me care about a bunch of characters that would otherwise suck. I'm really looking forward to volume 2...as long as they leave Giffen at the helm. Heaven forbid they give this cast of B-listers to an apathetic pen. I know this is supposed to be the intro story for the new Justice League Intl reboot but it really became the Booster Gold show.

    A book that really shows the power of continuity, as it builds on stories from JLI, Blackest Night, Infinite Crisis, and Kingdom Come. Lots of great characterization too, and a real feel of getting the old team back together.

    Max, max, Max, you are a very naughty boy. This was an entertaining read, but at times the plot slowed down thanks in no part to the back stories told of the main heroes. Entertaining yes, but for me not on the same level as what is being produced by Marvel.

    I love these books and these characters! It's nice too see them again after having been practically gone for the last decade. It's also nice to see captain atom back in a somewhat normalish story setting. I love these books and these characters!
