The 31st century and a crazed JLA

Porter's artwork and the colors by "Hi-Fi" have everything right about them that should be there for a superhero book, making most of many pages interesting to look at. The flaws are the usual things in DC and Marvel books: storytelling flow, chiefly.

The tale in issue one by Keith Giffen and J. M. DeMatteis starts off without much explanation, throwing the reader into a whirlpool of counter-intuitive facts about the Justice League. Instead of the grumpy, but happy family of super-powered men and women we're used to seeing, it is instead a group of overly aggressive (Wonder Woman) over-ego 'd (Superman) and the sort of pathetic (Flash) heroes who can't remember their past and have an unsure grasp of what they actually can and cannot do. Superman can't fly (though he tries with disastrous results) and Bruce Wayne/Batman isn't sure who he exactly is, but he certainly likes to bait Supers by calling him "Clark" or "Kent," who responds that "there is no Clark Kent, there is only Superman!" When pushed a little harder by Bats/Bruce Wayne, Superman attempts to fry him with his heat vision - - which he actually no longer has, so nothing happens. Wonder Woman is a bloodthirsty, pathologically obsessive amazon with no soft side, and Green Lantern has no ring and a lot of confusion (though he still has the power of the lantern).

In issue #2 we learn that these five were regenerated from DNA, and it was hardly a flawless process, hence the malfunctioning powers and identities. Who are they meant to fight in this oppressive 31st century era of multiple-inhabited planets? It's a rather opaque group of rulers called "The FIve." A pair of super-genius kids called "The Wonder Twins" are trying to puppet-master the revolt using this test-tube JLA.
