Subj: Justice League #66: Reserve Roster responding...

Justice League 066
> The Hall of Justice has been invaded by the cosmic threat of the Synmar Utopica, and it will take the full force of the United Planets, led by Superman, to defeat it without destroying Earth in the process. Meanwhile, the secrets of Checkmate are being whispered among the Justice League, and that spells trouble for Green Arrow and Black Canary. All this, and guest star Deathstroke! Meanwhile in Gotham, Batman stands watch as the Eternal Knight continues her quest through the maze of Randir Singh’s mind. And she’s not the only one lost within it! But where is the Justice League Dark in all of this? Under the sea in the lost city of Atlantis! Merlin is ready to rule, and it’s up to Aquaman and this band of magical misfits to save the entire kingdom!

Is that cover flag for Synmar Utopica or United Order or something else. Zero grabber factor.

Wow. that villain caused so much HoJ damage. [Sarcasm]Luckily prob not one noted injury to report. Well, Hippolyta's toga had a few tears.[/Sarcasm]

Cut to a Queen/Lance status update that would've been better as the prologue. We learn mehworthy tidbits: that was FAKE Deathstroke; Lois confirms Daemon IS her bro; a dog can change colors (or editorial SNAFU *eyeroll*); where BC and GA keep their teleport tubes; and, a boring trope of no one injured and bad guys escape.

Synmar motives/backstory exposition. More pathetic than powerful.

Naomi's folks are fine with JC, don't worry about 'em mate.

Door connects HoJ to Tower of Fate - (glaring?) overlooked precident for past missions in hindsight. Was there a backissue story about this feature?

Batman sounds wimpy thanking Flash like that. [Not that any other member got much better -if any- characterization.]

Round 2, Synmar survives Hippolyta, Black Adam, and Naomi - no problem.

Confirmed current Reserve Roster members/hip (responding) include:
Booster Gold
Firestorm
Captain Atom
Blue Devil
Plastic Man
Vixen
arguably The Wonder Twins and absent JLD members

Sadly, the Reserves are given zero input or grabber factor this installment.

OMG, for Round 3 it looks like it's JL, Reserves AND United Order against a "team -bustin" Synamr??!! C'mon, really...?!

The MAIN story AND ART were BAD. The backup was better than that, this time, and better than backup from last ish, too.
