With only a couple issues remaining things really pick up here. Blue Beetle returns from the dead with information on Maxwell Lord‘s plan. Batman and Power Girl finally join the team, and Wonder Woman makes an appearance as well.
There’s quite a bit shoved into this issue as Max’s plan goes into motion and the JLI celebrates the return of Beetle and Batman and tracks down the Amazon princess before Lord can implement his plan of revenge. There’s also a somewhat surreal moment as Batman and Wonder Woman meet for the first time, again.
I’m still a little sad we aren’t getting a little Guy Gardner thrown in (he certainly could use the break from the Brightest Day nonsense he seems to be trapped in), but I’m happy to see the return of Blue Beetle so quickly. Also, I’ve got to say just having Batman back with the JLI is pretty damn cool. Worth a look.
