Justice League Beyond 2.0 #15 Review

Written by: Christos Gage
Art by: Iban Coello
Cover Price: $0.99
Release Date: March 8, 2014

System Overdrive part 7 of 8 Boss Level

Justice League Beyond 2.0 has been such a good title.  With two more issues left in this arc, everything was heading towards a huge battle between Brainiac and the Justice League.  Well, the battle is here, it's explosive and it's awesome.  However, it still doesn't look good for the League as Brainiac counters everything they throw at him and their ranks are starting to dwindle.

They picked the right man for the job when they hired Christos Gage for this title.  He's done such a nice job with the huge and varied cast making each character unique and believable.  Some people believe that you never know a person's true mettle until they are under fire and the chips are down.  After this issue, I can tell you that's true in the Justice League.  Two characters turn tail and what makes matters worse is they are crucial to Mr. Miracle and Superman's plan.  

Not everyone is a coward though, and a certain King of the Sea rises to the occasion and sacrifices himself for the good of the others while his family watches.  It was selfless and I hope next issue shows it wasn't all for naught.  The book ends with a huge cliffhanger that is not just a game changer, but will make the geeky fanboy in me squeal with delight.

The art of Iban Coello is so good as usual.  He gets to flex his muscles with the non-stop action and explosions.  The standouts for me were giant Nth Metal Brainiac and Aquaman's wave attack.  Awesome.

Bits and Pieces:

Justice League Beyond 2.0 #15 is non-stop explosions, fighting and battles.  It is also awesome.  Christos Gage and Iban Coello are bringing us to the finish line and while the Justice League seems to be in trouble, the cliffhanger shows that real help is on it's way.
