Justice League #19 And Jupiter’s Legacy #1 – Separated At Birth?

Yesterday I ran a review of Jupiter’s Legacy #1, by Mark Millar and Frank Quitely, out in a week’s time.

This morning I read Justice League #19 by Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis, and got a remarkable case of deja vu. Foreign politics vs home politics, to be sure, but it’s just weird to have two sets of superheroes standing around talking interference/non interference in as many days.

They’re asking similar questions in today’s Vibe #3 as well.

Also, on an even more trivial nature, a Superman figure with a beard in Jupiter’s Legacy… and in Justice League #19…
