Really enjoyed this week. The GL issue was fantastic. Black Lantern Spectre is a great addition, and bringing back Parallax is like

As for JSA, despite having little to no knowledge outside the Stargirl series, they were enjoyable issues. The craftiness of the Black Lanterns to get key members to let down their guard so they could get Superman was outstanding. I started the issues thinking “yup, typical BL trickery”, but I was even being convinced that there might be some truth in their actions.

Then there’s BL Superman. During the previous fights, with some living super family members, it just didn’t come across as a big deal. But when you have him pitted against heroes that aren’t so over-powered, it’s much more interesting. Gave more of an Injustice vibe with a “how are you even going to deal with that?”
