Justice League: Generation Lost #23
UGH. I'm sick and tired of OMACs. Haven't we gotten enough of them since they started this whole Infinite Crisis thing? I mean, seriously. Max Lord's master plan is to make a bigger, fatter OMAC with Max's voice. That's the big reveal. C'mon.
There's some sort of little warp that separates the most powerful JLI-ers from their buddies (leaving Batman, Power Girl, and Captain Atom behind). The remaining folks can't really compete with the OMAZO robot (he starts using the JLI's powers during the fight), but it's almost worth it to see Booster Gold actually go after Max Lord. There is still a chance that this series could end strong. If Booster delivers some comeuppance to Max, if the Martian Manhunter shows up in the nick of time, if Batman pats the JLI on the head and tells them they're good kids after all. But it's going to be hard to justify this series if the big reveal is a fat OMAC.
Fernando Dagnino's art is fine, but I'm still confused why we couldn't have gotten a bit more of an original JLI feeling from this book.
