Christopher Priest Returns To The Justice League – What About The Tuna Sandwich?

Posted by September 15, 2017 Comment

Christopher Priest wrote the latter half of the ’90s comic book Justice League Taskforce, from issue 18 to its final issue, 36. A much-admired comic book and superhero writer, that was the only time he wrote for the Justice League books.

Until December, when he will take over writing Justice League for a two-part story with Pete Woods on art called, simply, Lost. Focusing on a sleep-deprived Batman, as useful as a tuna sandwich, who makes a very big mistake indeed, regarding the Justice League.

During his run on Justice League Taskforce, Christopher Priest established a piece of the series’ lexicon: the tuna sandwich. When debating Vandal Savage’s intelligence, Triumph asserted that Vandal Savage was a super-genius, not a tuna sandwich. Throughout the series, “tuna sandwich” became a euphemism for someone of low intelligence.

Will Justice League give Priest a chance to revive the term?
