What is ‘JLA: A League Of One’?

Standard

Comic book characters get reinvented, it’s what they do. One year we want a dark and gritty Batman not afraid to do what must be done for the safety of Gotham, the next we want a more upbeat guy who owns his own space ship. Perhaps this is why DC has always done so well with Elseworlds books because their characters still manage to shine through. Make Batman a pirate or Superman a communist and you can still tell that it’s them. One exception to this though is Wonder Woman a hero seemingly arbitrarily picked to join Clark and Bruce to round out DC’s “holy trinity”. Despite being just as old and having her own camp t.v incarnation she has never quite shifted the books like the boys and this has meant that while they have adapted to the times she seems to have rebooted every few years with every writer on the block sure they know how to solve a problem like Diana Prince.

From secretary to super spy, god of war to diplomat Diana has had a rough time in comics and despite her owners decrying that she would never play second fiddle to anyone some of her best stories seem to have been found in other books. Case in point………………………………

Standard

Superman appeared in 1930-something and beat up bad guys with a pow, smack and a bam but Lois got old and Superman got writers block so the nazis took over. Several decades later Lois and Clark fly to Germany but there’s something on the wing! So Superman fights the evil goblin but the Germans don’t like this and so try to arrest him for saving the day.
