Scott Snyder and Jim Cheung ushers in a new era of Justice League

Posted June 9, 2018 by


Picking up right after the events of DC Dark Nights Metal and Justice League: No Justice, Scott Snyder and Jim Cheung ushers in a new era of Justice League. Faced with unknown threats caused by the breaking of the Source Wall, can this new team work together to save the entire omniverse?


While the world is recovering from the events of Metal and No Justice, a new Justice League is formed towards the common goal of safety of the universe and the protection of mankind. Hence, at the beginning of the book, we finally get the Justice League that we need and deserve. The addition of J’ohn J’onzz as the chairman of the League is a bold move from Scott Snyder. Bringing him back as the central figure of the League provides new stories which Snyder can build on in creating this new era of superheroes. My only gripe with this book is the attachment of Snyder with the “Metal-attitude,” where he makes heroes curse as he pleases. While cursing was never a problem, some heroes are better off less vulgar.

Splash pages from Jim Cheung are spectacular. Panel transitions and panel compositions are top-notched. Nothing less is expected from someone who is talented and as well-experienced as Cheung is.

The best part of the story is the allegory between Martian Manhunter’s symbol and the logo of the Legion of Doom. What made it better was the analogy between the two different doorknobs that represents the entrance to the Hall of Justice and the key to the secret of the omniverse. The seeds have already been planted and it is up to Snyder when to decide to bring these seeds to its full fruition. Nonetheless, there are interesting developments that are yet to unfold. DC Comics really struck gold in Scott Snyder.
