Justice League: Cry for Justice #3 (November, 2009)
In becoming more proactive against super-villains, the new team of heroes forming around Green Lantern Hal Jordan and Green Arrow Oliver Queen stumbled upon a conspiracy laid out by the JLA anti-Batman Prometheus that was building a body count. Meanwhile, in Opal City, the Shade began putting together his own squad… for justice! A fortune was read that indicated a great deal of additional heroes would become entangled in Prometheus’ plot, including Wildcat, Miss Martian, Manhunter (Kate Spencer,) the Guardian, Batwoman, Shining Knight, Hourman, Liberty Belle, Robotman, and others.
The third chapter of Cry For Justice, “The Villain” was by James Robinson and Mauro Cascioli. Credit for consistency, the book looked very nice, and the script was fun, but everyone was taking their time getting anywhere. The team formation was also less than organic, as they each cried… for… justice!
