Choices

"Choices" from Justice League International vol.3 #1 (DC, 2011) by Dan Jurgens, Aaron Lopresti and Matt Ryan
Imagine if Booster Gold had chosen Metamorpho or Plastic Man or B'wana Beast or the Creeper (so he exists in the New52, not just as a Japanese demon in the most recent issue of Katana, or did Jack Ryder die in Phantom Stranger, sigh) or Congorilla... Unless I'm mistaken, those characters have yet to show up in the New52 as yet (Rex was referenced though). As it turns out, Jurgens' JLI was just too straightforward for me and fell by the wayside early. Solid superhero material, but it didn't really rise above the average. I did pick up its death throes and was stoked to see a Rip Hunter/Booster Gold sequence, but I'm still waiting for them to undo the Flushpoint.

  1. I'm waiting for them to undue Flushpoint(!) as well. Gosh, I do miss Booster and Rip. The sad thing is, that I miss Fire and Ice, and Gavril, and Beetle and the rest as well.

    They were not...handled particularly well. But it was all I could get!
