To follow up my review of “Batman Beyond 2.0: Rewired” a few weeks back, I will take you on another journey into the future of the DC Universe, with JUSTICE LEAGUE 3000. What I have done is jotted down my initial thoughts and questions as I was reading this-which you can pick up from your local comic book store / ComiXology TODAY for the low low price of $2.99.
Taking place in the future of the DC Universe as part of The New 52; the series will feature a 31st century iteration of the Justice League, with futuristic versions of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and Green Lantern. The series is written by JM DeMatteis, Keith Giffen and illustrated by Howard Porter. Justice League 3000 will begin publication in December 2013.
So..here it goes:
-why in the actual FUCK is it that in the 31st Century..the super hero archetypes are EXACTLY THE SAME as the 21st century?
–In the yeaaarrr 3000!!!
-it opens on another planet. Girl is getting dressed, and has this fancy ass blue nano suit that forms over her body. Cool.
–It’s a holo suit. It morphs into whatever works for a given area…That’s interesting…..
-Cadmus? CADMUS?! CADMUS IS A THING ON A DISTANT PLANET SEVERAL THOUSAND YEARS IN THE FUTURE?!?!?
-Opens with a girl named Hubris. Running from some monsters. Fun start.
“The Mobile Planet, “Cadmusworld”?!?!? WHAT THE FUCK?
Two unknown people, poolside. One is named Teri. Kind of look like the Terror Twins…and they’re the Wonder Twins…okay.
SPLASH PAGE! “Justice League 3000: Yesterday Lives”
“The Convert?” we cut to the League fighting a horde of…things?
So is this a group that studied Earth in the 21st Century and RECREATED the League?
So they’re copies? Okay…I guess the psudeo-science works.
“Clark Kent was a fiction.” – Superman
“We’re the Justice League, but we’re not” – Flash
Genetic samples? OH its Jurassic Park….okay that makes a hell of a lot more sense
So those are my initial thoughts. Overall, I liked Justice League 3000 #1. It’s a good read, with Batman and Superman at odds with each other. The characters bare the same name and resemblence to the real heroes-but with personality tweaks. It’s very different, and kind of fun.
go check it out. it’s worth the read…
