NYCC 2012: JUSTICE LEAGUE Panel
Some Geoff Johns' J'Onn J'Onzz quotes when discussing the upcoming JLA book.
"I'll also say this book will make Martian Manhunter the most dangerous character in the DC universe," Johns said to applause.
Q: Will JLA elaborate on the backstory between Martian Manhunter and the JL? Johns: "Yes, it will. you'll get a lot of why he's actually here and what he's been doing. I kind of call him a one man illuminati."
...Hope to hear your opinions!
Geoff Johns helped to make Aquaman a top selling comic, for which he's received so many pats on the back that they could double as a skin drum to help keep time as what's left of the comic book industry marches off a cliff. There's no such thing as a victimless society, and in order for Aquaman to be cool, Darkseid takes a trident to the face and falters out the New 52 gate. I'd much rather hear "Martian Manhunter is going to bugger Imperiex proper like" than "J'Onn J'Onzz will service the JLA as an extraterrestrial latrine," but the '90s proved that nobody is a badass if every single everybody is also a badass. Plus, it all sounds Bendisy, which isn't a compliment.
JUSTICE LEAGUE #16Will there be a cameo? There may in fact be a cameo.
