JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #25
Written by Dwayne McDuffie
Art by Ed Benes
Cover by Ed Benes
Vixen and Animal Man journey into the sacred Tantu Totem to solve the mystery of their altered powers. But Anansi, the African spider god responsible for these changes, has only begun reshaping the powers and histories of the Justice League, as eight-year-old Bruce Wayne shoots the burglar who killed his parents, Wonder Woman retires from the JLA after the tragic death of her husband, Superman, and The Green Lantern Corps quarantines Earth after one of their number destroys an American city. With the team’s history changing before Vixen’s eyes, is the JLA we now know gone forever?

Wow!  McDuffie is writing this book better than what I remember it being in the 80s when I was a kid! Characterization is spot on...Bat Man comes alive, Vixen is a viable heroine, Super Man has a voice, Firestorm has more depth, Wonder Woman cracks subtle jokes...amazing!  Benes is perfect - his pencils and inks are divine...no wonder this book has slipped back into the Top Ten in sales....quality rises.

in the current issue, Amazo uses Zatanna's "power."  I'm not a huge Zatanna fan, but I always thought her ability was really knowledge.  She knows magic like a surgeon knows medicine...not something Amazo can duplicate.  Or is Zatanna's magic really a "power?"

I enjoyed the issue here, I'd have to read up on Amazo, I didn't know that his adaptation power extended to magic, especially since, traditionally, it takes X number of years of discipline, and automotons are supposed to not meet the "living sentience" component..  I suppose we'll have to wait until the next issues for more info, maybe--

-- Oh, and is this a spider-god involved in Vixen's predicament?  what is his/its agenda?

A nice new issues, and I like the new Amazo look.  I wonder whose idea that was?

With the reveal of Anasi, and him having reality-warping powers (based on the upcoming solicit), I wonder if he is the way that Milestone will be incorporated into DCU?
