Ahh the '90's. What a wonderful time for some crappy comic book writing. I am willing to give Grant Morrison a small pass for this volume, since it was early on in his career. But there is a problem- Vol 1 was actually really good. I enjoyed it. This was a hodge-podge of stories thrown into one volume. None of them are really very good and ALL of them felt rushed. Very poor character development. It seems like they just introduced some new characters with very little about their background and then didn't bother to develop them before getting rid of them. Oh and one other question. Why the Hell is Superman blue? *sigh*
Okay..we start with some weird one shot story about the JLA looking for new members. So instead of looking for very powerful superheroes they go digging through the c and d listers (Hitman, the Warrior, Damage, etc)..if you just said "Who?"..well join the club. Of all these nonentities they select Tomorrow Woman. Uh yeah..okay then....anyways long story short- she's an evil robot sent to infiltrate the JLA but her AI is so good that she becomes good and commits suicide helping the JLA. *sigh* Did I mention Superman is blue?
Okay then we get a two issue slightly better story about Angels (and Demons that live in the nooks of flowers-just don't ask..if you care so much go read this crap yourself)..and this one wasn't awful. But again- no character development. Some Angel shows up, being chased by other "bad" angels..the "bad" angels are really tough..but Blue Superman (did I mention Superman is Blue? OH! And he uh can reverse the magnetic effects of the Earth's poles..um somehow...with new powers he never had...I assume because he's blue..ohhh and before I forget..he's so powerful that um now he needs an oxygen system to float around in space..on the moon...this is Superman we are talking about *sigh*) goes toe to toe with the boss-bad-Angel (ugh now I sound like that imbecile Jar-Jar Binks..thanks Morrison's AWFUL plot) and shows that blue Superman is still pretty powerful. Then the comatose guy (who no one really knows whom he is, nor is it explained-EVER) gets up and walks out of the hospital while everyone goes insane inside the hospital..oh and the demons? The ones who lived in the nooks of the flowers? They uh are screwed because the unnamed coma dude knocks over the flower vase...no seriously..you couldn't pay me to make this up..though someone paid Morrison to write this.
Then we finish with a two parter about some guy named the Key...who puts the JLA to sleep and they are infected with a virus in their dreams, but when they wake up..somehow the Key will get superpowers to enter the negative zone..but they are rescued by the Green Arrow..but he's a kid..well he's Ollie's kid..and Ollie is dead...*sigh* anyways it doesn't work..Key is defeated by Green Arrow (or is it kid Green Arrow?)..oh and Superman is still blue....for some reason.
The hardest thing, besides finishing this awful volume, was debating between giving it a 1 or a 2 out of 5 stars. I started with a two..but in retrospect..it deserves a 1. SKIP THIS ISSUE- unless you like bad comic writing in which case BUY THIS ISSUE. Oh did I mention Superman is blue?
