YMMV / Justice League (2018)

Go To

  • Crazy Awesome: This series is unafraid to embrace the truly ridiculous aspects of DC Comics, be it Jarro, blowing up the Moon to save Earth, or setting up a battle between multiversal gods for the battle over all existence.
  • Funny Moments:
    • The League taking turns doing impressions of Batman.
    • Martian Manhunter’s exchange with Batman before blowing up the moon.
    Martian Manhunter: ”Can you activate the bombs you long ago planted inside the moon as I make impact?
    Batman: “Bombs? In the moon? Why would I-“
    Martian Manhunter: ”Bruce.”
    Batman: ”...Fine.
    • Everything about Jarro. He's Starro, but in a jar.
      • In particular, Jarro’s dream of fighting crime alongside Batman with a Robin costume over his starfish body.
    • After the present day Justice League are saved by a future version of the Legion of Doom, the latter give their respective opposite numbers on the League heartfelt goodbyes until Grodd simply tells Flash he still hates him. Flash treats it like all of the other goodbyes and tearfully thanks him.
  • "Holy Shit!" Quotient: The first issue has this in spades (it IS a Justice League comic after all):
    • Cameos by the Justice Legion Alpha, The Overmonitor, Kamandi, as well as Highfather, Hera, Ganthet, Stranger, and the Wizard. And that’s just the first page.
    • Martian Manhunter and Batman destroying the moon to stop the Earth’s crust from breaking apart.
    • An object containing the energy of the Source Wall itself is coming to Earth. And it has the potential to contain information that will evolve the entire universe
    • Lex Luthor taking over Savage’s base the Hall of Doom, bringing his Legion of Doom as the new Hall’s residents, and straight-up murdering Vandal Savage.
    • Lex and Joker shrinking to microscopic size to take over the bodies of Superman and the Martian Manhunter, dispatching Batman and Hawkgirl In the process.
    • The revelation that Luthor has The Batman Who Laughs locked up in the Legion's headquarters, and the resulting deal to release him in exchange for information regarding the Totality!
    • Advertisement:
    • J’onn and Lex meet for parlay on Mars where it’s revealed that Lionel Luthor once worked for Vandal Savage and helped him capture a young J’onn J’onzz until J’onn was freed by his best friend, an adolescent Lex Luthor. This transgression spurned Savage to wipe the memories of both Luthors, leaving Lionel a sad man stuck in Smallville who bitterly abused his son for reasons he didn’t comprehend.. It’s unclear how much of the story is true.
    • The entirety of “The Sixth Dimension”.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The above splash page near the end of Issue 3 is terrifying even by the Joker’s standards.
    • Superman’s Slasher Smile after Lex takes over his body.
    • The reveal and subsequent conversation in Issue 8 between Luthor and someone he has captured and locked in the Legion's headquarters: The Batman Who Laughs!
  • Spiritual Successor: For the Justice League cartoon. While the series starts of a combination of the original seven, New 52, and the cartoon’s version of the team (leading to nine members), Aquaman and Cyborg fall off by the “Sixth Dimension” arc, leaving only the animated series’ members.
  • Win Back the Crowd: This series has pleased a lot of people who were disappointed with the DC Rebirth version of the team.
