The latest issue of Justice League reveals how David Graves got his power from the godlike beings known as Asuras on Mount Sumeru but still keeps silent on his motivation for wanting the League dead (how, exactly did the League kill his family?), but he still shows up on the satellite to wipe the floor with them by somehow draining the life force out of each member of the League.
One of the weaknesses of the title has been an action without giving us some important character interactions between the League during downtime. We get a little of that here, although the conversations we get (Batman knowing everyone’s secret identities and only really trusting Superman) seem odd in that they take place for the first time five years after the time has been together.
There are some nice moments such as the reveal that Barry doesn’t trust Hal with women after Hal hit on Barry’s last date, and Cyborg lets few secrets slip about some of the more secretive members of the group.
The back-up story of Shazam continues as Billy visits Mr. Tawny in the zoo and Dr. Sivana uses a single magic word to free Black Adam (who gets the same headed redesign
Captain Marvel, I mean Shazam, will receive) and return magic to the world. Hit-and-Miss.
