    1) Ahhh, that's the stuff.
    2) Black Condor II posing with a fish just plain works.
    3) There's something oddly disconcerting about Red Tornado eating.

    Well, this series will be good if only for all the cameos of heroes people probably haven't seen in years, comedic as it is.

    Is Red Tornado not a robot anymore?

    Last I saw he was still a robot... but a really, REALLY human robot. If you take into account his entire history ("it all happened," shouts a DC editor somewhere) he should probably be the most emotionally-aware android in the DCU.

    Still and all, it *is* weird to see him eating a cheeseburger.

    Also, I have no idea who that Hawk and Dove team is supposed to be. Cosplayers, perhaps?

    And is that Codpiece in the background of one of those panels?

    I think that's supposed to be archival footage to when Don was still alive.

    Can we just stop trying to recreate the Giffen era Justice League?

    Be nice to see some 'for hire heroes' who needed the money for reasons other than being mocked.

    Have there been any other attempts other than when Giffen and DeMatteis wrote JL 3000 or the current Blue and Gold book?

    I dunno, this is a Mark Russel comic. The folks needing money aren't the ones being mocked. Guys got a track record with social commentary comics that's so far pretty good and the fact that he can do humor doesn't hurt either.

    This was a fun preview. Can't wait until I get home from work Wednesday night to read this.

    Last one I recall were those "I Can't Believe It's Not The Justice League" titles, (there were two, I don't recall what the other one was called. But only Power Girl was in one of those and this new thing, if the cover roster is accurate. In fact, IIRC, it was the second of those two titles, the one I can't recall the name of, that named PG's cat Theodore.

    The only books that come to my mind that have a similar tone to me were all Marvel: Superior Foes of Spider-Man, Ant-Man, and Slott's She-Hulk. (and when the JLI team did "Defenders")

    The first one was the Formerly Known as the Justice League miniseries, and the sequel was "I Can't Believe It's Not The Justice League" from JLA Classified #4-9.

    And I loved all of those! I'd add in Kelly Thompson and Leonardo Romero's delightful Hawkeye series with Kate Bishop as a private detective/superhero in Venice Beach, CA, and Thompson's follow-up series with Stefano Caselli, West Coast Avengers.
