Ok, Metzger screwed up on a couple of minor details but…wow.
- When someone asks “So gimme an example of a good retcon.” and you’re sick of pointing to Moore’s “The Anatomy Lesson”, you can point them here. I love the explaination of why Dr. Light changed from being a seriously scary, first tier villian to one who could be beaten up by Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys.
I was all set to bitch about Barry’s participation until he said “It was right after Iris died”. Perfect
Did Ralph just die? He better f*%*$#ing not have.
Isn’t Deathstroke dead?
Quibble 1: Hawkman doesn’t have the powers of a bird. And even if he did, a hummingbird wouldn’t have been fast enough to see Wally. :: shrug :: oh well.
How come Batman allows this. I don’t buy the “Batman can beat everyone if he’s prepared” stuff, but noticing that a couple of villians became lobotomized right after fighting the JLA? He’d notice. I’d notice, and I’m not the world’s greatest detective.
Quibble 2: I don’t think this particular iteration of the JLA ever existed. Atom was gone by the time of Iris’s death. Zatanna didn’t join until later and anyway she should have been wearing that horrible Power-Girl-esque costume with the pony-tail.
Overall I really liked it though (assuming Ralph’s not dead).
