Justice League of America 007 (2017)

> “FATAL ATTRACTION”! Batman and Xenos work on the Secret Sanctuary while the Ray and Vixen perform community outreach. But it’s not all fun and games for DC’s newest superhero team, as the Atom and Killer Frost face off against the Terrorsmith (and their own budding romance) while Lobo and Black Canary come to blows in a casino caper. And it’s all capped off with a moment fans have been waiting for since DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH!

This was a real good Frost/Atom team up title.

Hardly a Justice League book at all. Missed the last 2 issues, so have no idea who Xenos is. There's a one page prologue of him with Batman at the HQ fixing it up to give readers the illusion that there's a reason for this team and this book. Similar there was a brief interlude of a Lobo/Canary generic team up at a Casino and one of a boring Ray/Vixen team up facing the Press. Both to give the readers illusion that their on this new team (just seven issues old) by the fact that they namedrop it.

Back to the crazy datemain story: done-in-one cover blurb should have been TERRORSMITH to match the foe's name. He was a well presented (new?) supervillain and it was very clever and moving how Cait beats him. Ryan was spot on amicable with his interaction and developing dynamics with her. Killer Frost's storyline still has a lot going for it and has me engaged. This understandable setback was effectively upsetting, even for Cait who manages to hide her dismay - heroically.

A photomap (photomat?) artstyle is usually not my thing -memories of the Cable series makes me shiver- but this was done really well and was a refreshing switch up. It migh even warrant trying again in a Justice League adventure - to repeat: of which this did not feel like. ALSO: as per the solicit blurb, WTH was the "moment fans have been waiting for since DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH!"???
