The Deathmatch Planning Of Justice League Of America #1 (SPOILERS)

There are spoilers for Justice League Of America #1 and for Justice League #17 here. Two for the price of one.

As Steve Trevor states in the new Justice League Of America #1 – Amanda Waller hasn’t been putting people together in her new government sanctioned team – but powers. And then lays them out directly. One intended to match every member on the Justice League’s team, like a professional football coach, analysing the opponents and arranging someone to block them. There’s even a diagram.

Blimey, it’s like we’re in a Jonathan Hickman comic or something. Can Katana really take down a demi-god? Would anyone else dare?

With Boom’s Deathmatch, Image’s America’s Got Powers and Marvel’s Avengers Arena, there seems to be something in this set-em-up-and-knock-em-down idea percolating through superhero comics right now.

And of course, as Justce League #1 shows us, it’s not just the good guys who are doing it…
