5.0 out of 5 stars The world's second-best super-team 2 Mar 2014
By Gareth Simon TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The story running through issues #1-5 of DC Comics' New 52 Justice League of America is collected, along with issues #6 & #7, which are episodes of the `Trinity War' crossover-event, as Justice League of America Volume 1: World's Most Dangerous HC (The New 52) (Justice League of America (DC Comic Numbered)). This story tells of the origin and first team-building missions of the world's second-best super-hero team, created by the US Government after the Atlantis Incident in the big Justice League's own comic, to provide the US with the capability to defend itself against the possibility of more rogue Justice League members. Colonel Steve Trevor, under the administration of Amanda Waller, is tasked with recruiting, training and field command of the new team, who's first outing goes badly, as they track down a mysterious Secret Society that Green Arrow was able to infiltrate for about 5 minutes. The presence of Dr Ivo for old-timers will naturally suggest androids and/or robots are going to be involved, and the apparent appearance of members of the big Justice League in the opening scenes will no doubt only confirm suspicions. However, the real mystery about this `Secret Society of Supervillains', is who is behind it, and what it is really up to. Old Timers once more will think that the front-man is very familiar, and his references to Batman will only add to the suspicion (though the Martian Manhunter back-ups also reprinted in this collection might offer an alternate theory).

1.0 out of 5 stars Simply the worst 30 Nov 2013
By Noel TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Evil but bland corporate stooge Amanda Waller puts together a team to fight the Justice League after she sees Superman and Wonder Woman smooching, thinking Wonder Woman will coerce Superman to take over the world. Dopey Steve Trevor and Amanda put together a team they believe is the World's Most Dangerous: Hawkman, Katana, Vibe, Star Girl, Green Arrow, J'onn J'onzz the Martian Manhunter, a Green Lantern, and Catwoman. The only one who could be called the World's Most Dangerous is J'onn, the others are a joke. You know how dangerous these morons are? They get taken out by something called The Shaggy Man in issue #4 - how the hell are they a credible challenge for Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and the rest of the JL?

Why would these random individuals work together as a team? Geoff Johns gives us the barest of reasons for each, none of which make any sense. Also, half of the Justice League of America aren't American. But that's par for the course with this book, all of it is completely arbitrary and stupid.

Geoff Johns brings his Z-game to the series and, after presenting us with the uninspired lineup, gives us cornball dialogue throughout, my favourite of which is a line from Steve Trevor who says "I'm not a sellout. I'm the guy who rebels against authority!". Amazing. I keep hoping this will be his catchphrase as it makes me laugh so much (and his expression when he says it!) but he only says it the once.

The plot is absolute nonsense - there's some rubbish about the JLA hunting down something called the Secret Society but the last two issues in the book are Parts 2 and 4 of Trinity War where the Justice League teams are fighting one another over a Damien Hirst-like skull called Pandora's Box in a new nonsensical storyline.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love, love, love the Leaguers 14 Mar 2014
Format:Hardcover
Pounding heart. Palpitations. Justice League, what is happening? Where is Booster? How many Justice Leagues will there be? Will even one be left standing? My mind is racing after reading this volume and I. Can't. Wait. For. Trinity War. I pre-ordered it ages ago!! There are so many superheroes involved in this book that it is just too many to even remember who is supposed to be part of the new JLA. The first line-up gets changed once and at the end we don't know where they stand. Just like all the other JLs at this point! Shazam is even here. He was on the reserve list from Justice League, Vol. 3 and he's still hanging around and wants to go home but is told he'd better stay around until things get sorted out. The scenes with various JL's going up against each other are truly epic! And now we have a Secret Society of super villains. Catwoman which team is she on? Amanda Waller where does her loyalty lie? The answers will psyche you out!! OK, now just some rambling. Lots of new people here for me. I love Vibe!! What can I say ... I thought he'd be lame but I love him. We get to know a lot about Green Arrow actually, even though this volume is not much about the characters as it's so intense on the action. I haven't liked his appearances so far in the JL books but I'm willing to look into him now and may try out his series. Martian Manhunter is given quite a bit of character development too and I think that's because he's being seen as the "leader" of JLA. I loved the slightly different twist on his background story than pre-52 and I've always liked him as a character. None of the other new superheroes was given enough exposure to get to know them yet so am reserving judgement. Yet I can say I love, love, love the Leaguers and their universe!!
