Late-fifties-era DC superheroes in the classic heroic mode except with acknowledgement of racism and McCarthyite fear of dissidents/others (sexism, not so much, but are you surprised?). Wonder Woman, though she got one fantastically disturbing/awesome scene, had even less to do than in the first volume¿and she was pretty much the best thing about it¿and everybody comes together in the end because of a bigger threat; I guess we¿re all in this together. I think this might have been a lot of fun for teenaged me, and I suspect if you¿re a fan of classic Hal Jordan, who gets a lot of screen time, or of J¿onn, you might like it better than I did.

Darwyn Cooke has such a way of transporting readers to the time period he is drawing. Its pretty amazing. Here, every page is almost perfectly crafted to the 50's. My problem with this portion of the overall storyline is that at times the "Center", which is the antagonist, is too vague. The danger is real enough but I'm not sure why. Also, and this might be the fault of the letterer, but the narration boxes all looked the same so it was, at times, difficult to figure out which hero was speaking. Overall, the book is gorgeous but the plot drug on too long.
