The Infinitus Saga continues with Stargirl stepping up and talking some sense into both teams about the rather unheroic actions of killing a powerful child because of what he might one day turn into in one possible future timeline. The entire concept of the Legion of Super-Heroes heading backwards in time to commit murder has bothered me since the beginning of the arc rather than having the heroes struggle to find the more heroic thing to do, and I’m happy to see my favorite member of the current Canadian Justice League team be the one to step-up here as the cheap out of snapping someone’s neck appears to be off the table.

Although there are certainly some oddities here, Justice League United launches with a zero issue rather than a #1, the timing of the book is a bit nebulous (taking place sometime after DC’s still running Forever Evil crossover event and with a non-Red Lantern Supergirl), I’ve got to say DC’s grouping of a Canadian-based Justice League team written by Jeff Lemire with art by Mike McKone is better (and funnier) than expected and could be the New 52‘s best new title since Worlds’ Finest.

Okay, so I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that Stargirl is going to be part of the New 52. Forgetting, for the moment, that the character makes no sense without the JSA (which never existed on this Earth), I’m happy to see one of DC’s young blonde heroine returning to the fold (even if it is the wrong one!). Here’s the bad news, Stargirl with be a part of the new Justice League of America featuring the Martian Manhunter, Green Arrow, Katana, the (yet to be named) new Green Lantern, Hawkman, Vibe, and Catwoman. Really DC? Fucking Vibe?! And Katana and Catwoman (both of who are fugitives in the New 52)? The comic will be written by Geoff Johns (who’s given us the very uneven Justice League) and drawn by David Finch (who’s given us the truly awful Batman: The Dark Knight). So, um, Yah?

Look, the set also includes Stargirl, Kobra, and the Golden Age Atom. Yeah, you know he’s gonna shell out big money for these.
