Will Wonder Woman double erotically asphxiate Maxwell Lord and Lex Luthor this time?

Especially considering that Bruce Timm told the same story (and told it better) in the 90's Justice League animated series with just 2 episodes.

Forget Lex, I vote for Otis.

I, for one, welcome our hyper-intelligent, bald overlord.

I'm kind of "meh" on the whole Luther thing during this event. Kind of "meh" on the event, to be honest. Some things I like, I guess. Grid has been interesting. And kryptonite acting like a drug that Ultraman snorts to get his powers was different. But out of the whole event, I think I actually like Captain Cold's arc the best. I've never liked the character until now.

Remember when words like Hero and Justice used to mean something? And when a Dad could buy a mainstream DC comic for his son?

Luther is one of my least liked Justice League villains.  I like Darkside (Darksied?) and Savage (Randle?  Vandle?)

Randal Savage, Vandal's oft-overlooked but just as evil younger brother.

Yeah because 2 episodes of a cartoon equate 1:1 to 2 issues of comics...

*facepalm*

Also, do you really think Bruce Timm was the one who invented the parallel world evil Justice League stories?

The man Lex Luthor wishes he were.

Can Lex ever seriously succeed in just one plan? Just once?

Le Luthor succeeds at pretty much everything he does that isn't illegal. It's only when he goes bad that he fails.

I know the Crime Syndicate universe has been around since Pre-Crisis days. Never said he invented it, just said he did a better job of using the concept than Forever Evil. Dragging it out like this with the sheer number of titles involved in the story is just another sales-boost gimmick. Marvel does the same thing too and it's stupid. You get a boost in sales that dies off after the event because your staff can't write well enough to keep interest in certain titles alive. So, a few months later, another company-wide event to get a sales fix which promptly dies off. It's the editorial version of heroin, riding a high then getting another fix after the crash.

It's only stupid if the story is bad. If the story is good, who cares about the format being used?

Even a good story can become bad if it drags out in a disjointed mess, like a prom dress cobbled together out of exquisite persian rugs. Bruce Timm had an EXCELLENT ability to distill down years of DC continuity without shearing off a lot of interesting stuff away. The Cadmus arc, and the Thanagarian invasion arc and its aftermath are strong examples.

Example: The events of the Justice Lords 2 parter had ripple effects for the rest of the series. Cadmus convinced the US government that all the wicked shiat they were getting up to was to prevent OUR superheroes from ever pulling the same thing, and Luthor played them like a fiddle. We didn't stretch out watching Lord Batman breaking Joker, which, in every other continuity ever is flat impossible, or any number of things that would have been somewhat interesting,but less so after you've squeezed every drop of drama from a stone. It's a hard thing to do in comics, not stretching out good plotlines into infinity long after everyone is bored of them. And especially so in huge crossover events, when you're yawning because you have to put up with several titles you don't care about, just so you can get the rest of the story for the cross over.

Your ideas are intriguing to me, and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter comic book.

There have only been two big crossover/remake events that I actually found appealing:

Marvel's Age of Apocalypse and the Marvel/DC Amalgam comics.

That would be Lex's cousin, the one that was elected President of France, right?

Anyways, I saw this, and first thought "Heh, sounds like that time when Magneto ended up leading the X-Men.  Or that other time, when Magneto led the X-Men... or..."

Hey, didn't Marvel already do this with The Avengers and Norman Osborne?  Oh yeah, that's right, nothing is ever fresh in the big wig parlours of DC/Marvel.  I'm still going to read it though.  What can I say?  I'm one of those kind that are born every minute.

If only Luthor had done the "let me look good on camera and attain a position of power in American government, only to lose it in spectacular fashion once I go batshiat crazy" years before. Oh wait, he totally did!!

President Luthor.
