Overview

Justice League Vol. 2: The Villain's Journey (The New 52) by Geoff Johns, Jim Lee, Scott Williams

A NEW YORK TIMES #1 BESTSELLER

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!

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.

This book is a big improvement on the origin story that preceded it. Here we actually get to see the heroes working within the group in a much stronger storyline. Batman is now using his leadership skills and brilliant mind, Superman is strong loner playing within a team dynamic and Wonder Woman is actually a woman and not some flakey party girl cheerleading for the men. The story line is stronger than the action in this book and that's a good thing. This book still has some flaws but the writing has improved so dramatically that it seems more like literature than the kiddie action book of the origin story.

Volume 1 was interesting how they all meet, but volume 2 brings a completely different story and shows you why some members didn't make the main league like Green Arrow and Martian Manhunter! The ending made me go and buy volume 3 immediately!
