The Arrival of The Omega Titans

JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE #1 kicks off in full chaos mode. The Green Lantern Corps have assembled against a mysterious, galactic threat out in space. Meanwhile, on Earth, Brainiac has kidnapped the Justice League as well as members of both the Teen Titans and the Suicide Squad!

In an interesting twist, Brainiac vows, while bound by Wonder Woman’s Lass of Truth, that his kidnapping of some of DC’s most iconic heroes isn’t malicious. Rather, he’s attempting to gather them all in order to defeat the Omega Titans. Said Titans are powerful entities of the universe that exist as four elements: Entropy, Wisdom, Wonder, and Mystery. Each and every one of those entities are on their way to consume the universe, and there’s no way to defeat them.

Well, there might be one way.

Brainiac has gathered all of the universe’s greatest heroes and assembled them into four distinct teams based on an algorithm he devised that matches each team up with an Omega Titan they might be capable of defeating.

Unfortunately, however, Brainiac has also recruited some of the universe’s most notorious villains. So, unsurprisingly, some disputes ensue, leaving the entire assembly of heroes and villains in complete disarray.

Also, if that wasn’t enough of a conflict, throughout the issue, Amanda Waller is attempting hack into Brainiac’s mind and shut him down. So, upon the final pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE, she does just that, leaving Brainiac’s fate ambiguous.

The Verdict

JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE #1 is a solid start to the four-issue miniseries. The issue immediately jumps into the overarching narrative without feeling rushed. Perhaps the stand-out aspect of the overall piece is Brainiac’s characterization. He’s the center of this issue and carries it exceptionally well.

Additionally, his description of the Omega Titans is instantly iconic. These new villains are presented as entities of power and chaos. Yet, there’s still an overarching mystery to them and their objectives that makes them even more terrifying.

Finally, having the heroes and their biggest enemies assembled together on the same side is incredibly entertaining. Facing the end of the universe, it will be interesting to see how foes will be made into allies in the midst of battle. That is, assuming the two sides won’t ultimately be unable to fight alongside each other.

So, overall, JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE #1 is dynamic from start to finish and will grip readers with its surprises and a well-developed ensemble of characters.

The Many Hues of JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE #1

The best artistic aspect of JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE #1 is the coloring from Hi-Fi. The opening sequence alone showcases a great depth through the depiction of the entirety of the Green Lantern Corps in the vastness of space. Now, said depth is accomplished through Hi-Fi’s wonderful balance of colors that persists throughout the issue. Another sequence worth noting is the initial fight sequence between the Justice League and Brainiac.

It’s turbulent, but Hi-Fi expertly juxtaposes vibrant hues with the dark context of the sequence’s narrative.

However, the artwork does have some faults. At times, the character depictions come across as inconsistent, specifically in illustrations of Superman. Despite those flaws, however, JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE #1 still presents its narrative through some energetic artwork that persists throughout.

What Lies Beyond

The universe is on the brink of destruction, and it has been placed under the protection of heroes and villains alike. The notorious villain, Brainiac, stands tall amongst the universe as he devises a scheme to save it. Yet will his plan succeed?

JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE #1 serves as the introduction to an epic new story that raises the stakes for our favorite heroes and villains.

So, if the first installment already has you hooked, stay tuned for what lies ahead!
