Overview

The Justice League is the greatest force for good the world has ever seen. But not everyone sees them that way.

Their never-ending battle against evil results in casualties beyond its super-powered, costumed combatants. The League's attempts to safeguard innocent lives cannot save everybody. Unbeknownst to Earth's greatest champions, their greatest triumph may contain the seeds of their greatest defeat.

For heroes are not the only people who face tragedy and are reborn as something greater than they were before. Villains can take this journey, too.

And once they start out on this dark path, the road could lead straight to the destruction of the Justice League . . . .

The New York Times bestselling team of Geoff Johns (Green Lantern) and Jim Lee (Batman: Hush) are joined by artists Gene Ha (Top 10) and Carlos D'Anda (Deathblow) for JUSTICE LEAGUE VOL. 2: THE VILLAIN'S JOURNEY, collecting issues #7-12 of the series. Can the world's greatest super heroes survive a voyage deep into the heart of darkness? It all ends with one of the most shocking . . . and surprising moments in DC history!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The strong and enjoyable "New 52" revamp of DC's flagship superhero team features Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg. Following a straightforward, action-packed, and engaging first volume (Origin), things become darker and more complicated here as a new villain emerges. David Graves, who wrote a book that made the world trust and love the Justice League, now blames the team for his family's death and his own terminal illness. He strikes at it through its government liaison Col. Steve Trevor (whose love for Wonder Woman has been spurned), drawing the team to a mystical site where the dead seemingly return to the world. VERDICT Prolific DC mainstay Johns delivers a well-judged combination of action, emotion, and intrateam interaction and banter. Primary artist Lee (Batman: Hush) remains a master of the "idealized realism" school of superhero comics. The results will be satisfying and accessible to new readers and longtime fans alike.—S.R.

    A villian that takes on the League

    Vol. 2 is a good story where a villain blames the Justice League for his personal tragedy and digs up an old evil to try and make the League suffer losses like he has. Great drawings, and a story that keeps you turning pages.
