Here is what I thought
I am learning that the comics I read when I was young have not stuck with me or there are a lot more characters now than there use to be. I seen this one and thought oh Justice League, but I wasn’t prepared for Batman’s suicide squad version…lol. I only knew a couple of the characters and the rest were very strange especially Lobo, he was plan scary.
I was so confused with the story line at the beginning that I just wasn’t really having a lot of fun with this one. I found it really hard to get into when I didn’t really know the characters and the confusion at the start just through me off. From now on I am going to be much more careful with my picking of comics to read. 🙂
Batman takes some unusual characters, some of them being Lobo, Killer Frost, Ray and others I can’t remember. He is attempting to change their attitudes and make them heroes instead of villains. The people don’t really trust them but when Havoc comes to take over the planet they have to try and defend everyone making them somewhat crazy heroes, I just can’t get over the looks of Lobo….lol. He creeps me out. 🙂
I did think that the illustrations were pretty cool. 🙂
