I haven't read an Injustice Gang story since Morrison's early JLA run, but, IIRC the last time their plot fizzled, it wasn't Joker's doing..

I vaguely remember Bruce Wayne bribing one of the lesser members (Mirror Master?) and initiating a hostile takeover of LexCorp holdings??



Yeah, thats what happened.  But Lex seems like Bruce, in that they want to plan for every outcome...and the Joker is forever the wild card.  Hell, he could help the good guys because its funny boner (to use one of the Joker's old terms  ;D)

If Lex Luther is so smart, why does he keep including the Joker in the Injustice League...it never works out well for him?
Did you read the end of Infinite Crisis? Leaving the Joker out is seriously bad for your health.

If the Special is any indication of things; I'm going to love this series.

This series is back on track now...had dropped it with the troubled pacing of the first six issues.  McDuffie brings a whole new ideology to this book that is evident from the opening pages...he has direction, sharp dialogue, sub-plots and characterization down to a science.

Darn, I still haven’t had time to read The Wedding Special.  I am teaching a computer class tomorrow as part of my volunteer work and must prepare my lesson tonight.  Don’t know when I will have time to read it.  Darn it!!!   >:(

Looks cool. The artist is no Ed Benes, but its still pretty cool.

The “Pipeline” column by Augie De Blieck Jr at CBR is heaping praise upon McDuffie for his JLA.  Follow the link and scroll down to the section of the column labeled "OVER IN THE DC PLAYGROUND".

I am not a DC guy either.  The only DC heroes I really like are Batman and John Stewart.  I guest I kind of like Vixen also.  I loved the Justice League animated series.  I am hoping that the McDuffie magic will give me a DC title that I can really enjoy.

Mike Mckone's art for the wedding special really looks great.  I never heard of him before.


I feel pretty much the same way about JS and Batman. I did like the BOP when Simone was on it.

Justice League of America Wedding Special- Even though it was all set up I liked it. I think Dwayne McDuffie got a good start, and I'm happy that he brought John Stewart back into the fold as Green Lantern. I also found the talk between Hal Jordan and John Stewart very interesting to say the least.

Yeah, I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed that issue. That conversation between and Hal and John was a trip. I guess that's McDuffie thumbing his nose at the naysayers. I also like how he got Batman to not only compliment Firestorm on his increasing experience, but he also stated Firestorm was possibly one the most powerful beings on the planet.
