JLA/Avengers Story Knocked My Socks Off
If you've ever imagined your own favorite comic book superheroes together in one adventure as friends or foes, regardless of publishing company, then this book is for you. Its conflict, characters, plot, and art are simply superb, as Kurt and Perez grab the reader's attention from the start. As before in Crisis on Infinite Earths, tangential universes are destroyed by a being of mind-boggling power, and our universe is next. However, this time the crisis is so great that the mightiest teams of both Marvel and DC must combine to solve it.
This is not just another hero-against-hero story, though those battles happen to great effect. The plot is terrific because the Avengers and Justice League are also individuals that problem-solve, feel emotions, and learn. Kurt's writing portrays the champions with personality and humanity. The superheroes are very different, but also very similar.
The story offered only two weaknesses. First, the resolution of the conflict I found reminiscent of Marvel's Secret Wars II. Second, I wonder if the reader who is not knowledgeable about both or either team will be able to appreciate all the subtleties the story offers, such as the involvement of the Barry Allen Flash.
