    At least “Cry for Justice” isn’t as bad as “Bimbos in Time.” =)

    4:54- I 100% agree with you Lewis. I always think of the Justice League as the Jedi Order of the DC Universe. They are a group of powerful and very skilled people who work together to keep the piece and do their best to prevent a major event from ever happening. Also, they don’t force piece, or justice in this case, on to others.

    Today’s secret word is “Justice.” If anyone says the secret word, ram your head against the wall. Have fun, kiddies.

    If I blur my eyes a bit, I can definitely see the word “CRY” in the title as “GAY.”

    12:23- Astronomy, what’s that?

    I know of the story of Prometheus. He first appeared in an early issue of JLA, and he appears to be a pretty good super criminal mastermind. ...Until the very end of this mini-series.

    I can’t wait to see the major conflict with Vyce. BTW, That’s an awesome animation of the ship.

    EDIT: I'm deeply sorry for being the first to make a comment for this episode. I'll be careful next time. =)
  • Lucia32
    Was Prometheus really that great before? All I heard was that he was basically like an Evil version of Batman (which I thought was Deathstroke's schtick).
  • ThatDudeInTheUshanka
    Atleast half of Batmans newer members of his rogues gallery have been Evil Versions of Batman
  • Pixelraak
    Yepp, just a few months ago Wrath appeared... Evil Batman in a tech-suit resembling a bat. With a rich alter-ego.
  • SpeedyEric
    Yeah, that makes perfect sence. He grew-up to a Bonnie and Clyde type of parents, saw them being killed by the police, and takes vengence upon do-gooders.

    Lucia, you are a really good friend. ;)
  • zmh24
    Nah, this was worse than Bimbos in Time. Bimbos in Time was laughably bad, where as this was just plain bad.
  • Dragon_Nexus
    Yeah, there's a difference between something being lame but good for a laugh and something like this which just seems to go out of its way to insult those reading it and those who care about the depicted characters.

    Imagine this, if you will. A scientist suddenly burst into a room filled with his fellow researchers.

    "I found the cure for cancer!" He exclaims.

    "When did you did you do that?" One of his colleagues asks.

    "After it killed my friend." The scientist says, a grim expression crossing his face.

    "Well, what is it?" Another researcher asks. "What will cure cancer?"


    Yeah, I know I was reaching a bit there and the outcome was obvious...but so is this comic.

    Justice to me has always been about balancing the scales. Something happens that causes the scales to tip one way, something must be done to balance it back. A crime is committed, police go out to apprehend the suspect. A disaster occurs, people rush to help survivors and restore the area. So, going out and seeking their "Justice!" is actually causing the scales to tip. They are creating an injustice...

    ...For Great JUSTICE!
  • theSnark  - For Great JUSTICE!
    Move 'ZIG'?
  • Dark Pascual
    Steven Seagal will CRY FOR JUSTICE!!!
  • fhp007  - what?
    You thought of using Steven Seagal in context of this comic, and didn't use the misread title: "Steven Seagall is: GAY FOR JUSTICE!!!" ?
    (which, by the way, sounds like a cool and unexpected movie)
  • IisAwesome
    is this a two parter or a three parter?... either way I'm always excited to see new episodes... keeps it up Lewis... wait... ok new plan watch video then comment... so if you're going to talk about the titans in the third part does that mean you're going to continue the titans review? you said in the first one that the first four sucked then just did the first, I'd like to see it continued
  • SpeedyEric
    According to the AT4W website, this will be a 3-parter.
  • Shroud  - Frank Miller writes the Atom
    Ray Palmer: I'm the goddamn ATOM!

    Every other person in DC: Awww isn't that cute
  • whatever42
    Don't say things like Miller writing the Atom, it may be jinxed into happening. As Phelous would say, "The nightmare becomes reality!" (insert silly music here) Although, I still think your right in how it would turn out.

    Seriously though, I don't think I've seen you much angrier Linkara. You must truly and utterly despise this story to get that mad. I can only hope that Vyce doesn't make this situation any worse for you than it already is.

    I'm looking forward to the next parts of the review. This looks to be another one to remember. Keep up the good work.
  • FullmetalNinja25
    Wow can Hal Jordan be any more out of character in this comic?! >:(

    Love the Angry Joe cameo! :)

    Great video Lewis! :D
  • Rurik
    I know right? For a moment I thought "Maybe he forgot this was Hal and not Guy." then a moment later I thought "Nah, even Guy isn't this much of a bloody moron."
  • Jezzy54
    Vyce's ship looks pretty cool on the outside, too. By the way, don't you think it's ironic that you spelled "Vyce" with a "Y" BECAUSE POOR LITERACY IS KEWL? I guess maybe it's justified because Vyce is an alien, so whatever.

    Anyway, I'm just thankful the Green Lantern series never mentions Hal Jordan's part in this mess so we can concentrate on the cool stuff.
  • SpeedyEric
    I'm sure most of us already figured out the spelling of Vyce thing out when he was introduced in the show. Just sayin'. =)
  • Crossover Princess
    All right! Lord Vyce is coming! Can't wait... even if it's going to be more than a month! Still it's going to be awesome!

    Oh and all those cries for Justice... they made me want to bang my head against a wall... seriously... and I'm not a wall banging type of person... That's how bad it is...
  • toth88
    More hated than countdown? I'm afraid very afraid and yet I can't wait for parts 2 and 3
  • rowdycmoore
    Keep in mind, he says this is the worst comic he's ever REVIEWED, and he never has (or will) officially review One More Day....

    I just got Supergirl #59 TODAY and am planning on regularly picking it up (possibly to replace Wonder Woman, because I am STILL pissed off at how JMS is RUINING her!). And now I see she's one of the many who will be derailed in this comic? Great....
  • DMaster
    He said he HATED it more than any other he reviewed; he didn't say it was the worst.
  • rowdycmoore
    Yeah, I think I finally understand that now, especially since I've seen Part Two (with Part 3 still to come). I'm guessing it's not the WORST but it's the one he HATES the most because the results of this miniseries are still being felt in the DC universe (as opposed to Countdown and Amazons Attack, which the writers have done their best to ignore since, or JLA Act of God and Superman Earth's End which are Elseworld comics, or especially Superfoxes and Bimbos in Time, which are just amateurish indies that are to be mocked rather than despised).

    JUSTICE LEAGUE: We make peoples heads explode...for Justice!
  • coleslayer  - OMG VICE!
    ooooohhhhhh yyyyeeeeaaaahhhhh!!!!
    This is gonna be good. Vice is here.
    I hope this is going to turn into some kind of messed up super movie that encompasses the whole gang at Thatguywiththeglasses.com !
  • Semudara
    It's spelled Vyce...but yeah, I hope the same as you! A final confrontation with Vyce would make an excellent 3rd Anniversary for TGWTG!
  • SSH  - If this is cry for justice!
    I don't want to know what cry for evil is!

    And considering how much you hate this, I can't wait to see how much you hate Marvel zombies returns( a terrible reimagining/retailing/ alternate universe/lazy asSSSS writing! that I've ever read) and for all those who says it's not that bad, in that first issue, we break 20 different continuity issues, not to mention laws, like the watcher interfering with another watcher's universe, and don't give people crap that that technically it's not interfering if it's not in your own universe! for its is! not to mention the ridiculous reason for why he does it! maybe we should stop the zombie plague from ever encouraging other worlds, should do a test by sending a zombie and doing other worlds, even though I have plenty of evidence in my own world! says THE Watcher!
  • DMaster
    He already said he wouldn't do that one, in his Top 15 Never Reviews video. Maybe you meant something with "returns" in the title, but I can't really understand your post.
  • SSH  - list is not permanent, after all reviewed sonics!
    I'm willing to take the offer though flying up there and reviewing it for him if he doesn't really want to review it! otherwise I can't really make references to bad comics, with the exception of sonic! simply because I don't actually come across bad ones( all that often) I read series that I usually expect to be good, but for my reason of MZReturns I'm a big fan of zombie pictures, and there is a number one rule about zombie pictures, when you explain the origin story of the virus, you can be vague as possible, not create a paradox of stupidity!
  • rogueofmv
    JUSTICE tastes great with a light bite and goes down smooth, perfect for those evenings out on the town with a loved one, or for the casual dinner party at home.
  • Qarx
    Please drink responsibly.
  • LyricalCow
    JUSTICE needs more BACON!
  • The Hardcore Kid
    Ugh...try having a drinking game every time the word "justice" is mentioned in these comics. What a total wreck.
  • e33laf
    I think you'd be rushed to the ER with severe alcohol poisoning before the half way mark of the first issue.
  • rageofkyubii  - Hmmm....
    I know this is a bit off-topic, but does anyone else think the TGWTG crew could make their own team of badass superheroes? Think about it...Linkara's a Power Ranger, Spoony has a Hulk-like transformation(Doctor Insano), Angry Joe has Force Lightening, Phelous is a Time Lord....

    I'm telling you, this has the setup for an awesome team. Maybe in the Third Aniversary something like that will come up.
  • KingNothing
    I think Insano would make a great villain, perhaps teamed with M. Bison, Dr. Smith or Linksano (and maybe Black Lantern Spoony).
  • jurf-rokstar
    Are you sure Phelous isn't Deadpool?
  • rageofkyubii
    I meant in reference to their own shows continuity and timelines.

    but yeah, Phelous would be great as the Merch with the Mouth.
  • cheetaboy7
    He may be new, but dont forget the alien version of Nash!
  • Hawkman33
    One of many reasons I prefer John Stewart.


  • Deimos1984rd
    Wow that comic is just...aweful seriously I can see why you hate it, to me it's just insulting.

    Dark Energo....I mean JUSTICE!!!
  • RolePlayHumor
    More hate than with One More Day? -Oh God- o.o
  • rageofkyubii
    Technically, he never reviewed One More Day.
  • snakes3425
    that comic doesn't exist

    (Yes I know it does, but I hate it so much I've essentually banned it from ever coming into my house)
  • NintendoFanboy
    Ray Palmer: "Welcome to pain!"
    Magneto: "Welcome to die!"

    Also, does anyone else see a face in the title card's moon? Like if the one from Majora's Mask had to many pills.
  • Panzermanathod
    Well at least I wasn't the only one reminded of Magneto.

    But at least, as cheesy as it was, it made more sense with Magneto.
  • Kryss LaBryn
    Yeah. Honestly, I didn't even realize it was supposed to be the moon; I was just trying to figure out why Jack Skellington would be floating back there.

    I vote for this ending up being some new kind of Bizarro Lantern or something. SO retarded. I'd rant a bunch in detail but why bother? You all know why it's retarded too anyways.

    Damn, I miss early 90's funny!Justice League!! That was awesome.

  • Lucia32
    I never thought I'd ever get sick of a single word.

    If this keeps up, in a few years Frank Miller is gonna have Batman end every page with a scream of "MY PARENTS ARE DEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAD!"
  • rockybalboa211
    Wow this was an epic review! I mean first with Angry Joe, who for some reason I thought was stuck in another dimension by Obscurus Lupa, being at the start.

    They respond to crimes and emergencies when they happen because they just happened! :)
    This comic was "Diddily dur hay", I mean you can't stop evil. Evil takes many forms and even the term is very subjective.
    We hate this thing as well Linkara!

    At 5:36, What was that word again? Because I would wear that on a shirt! I would also wear "Gay for Justice" on a shirt as well! :D
  • DMaster
    If we consider ALL TGWTG continuity...he should've also been trapped in Paw's head for over a year, along with Goggles and Spoony. If the stuff with Lupa ever comes up again, it will make sense only if positioned well before or after these events.
  • Ashoten2021
    If you replace the word Justice w/Revenge it would make a lot more sense.

    A proactive superhero team might work better if you rip off the plots from the movies "Paycheck" and "Minority Report". Using time scanning technology to predict crimes and showing up to stop them. To add dramatic tension a supervillian mastermind could be altering the information to make the heros beat up innocent people.
  • ThatDudeInTheUshanka
    The sad thing is that you could actually say that they are synonymous and have somewhat of an argument.
  • Divide By Zero  - Justice and revenge are not synonyms.
    The desire for justice and the desire for revenge arise from the same source. The difference is their ends. Revenge seeks to repay hurt with hurt, to injure that which injures us. Justice is restorative, it seeks to right inequity. It is balance and atonement.

    We've all of us felt the urge to avenge ourselves of some wrong at some point, it's very easy to hate. It is a basic and violent emotion. The only real aim of revenge is the destruction of that which frightens or angers us.

    Justice, on the other hand, requires that we look beyond our own personal hurts. It's a more difficult path, often requiring us to outright swallow our desire for revenge, but ultimately it is the more constructive. What justice means for each person may vary, but what does not vary is that justice cannot be delivered in anger. In seeking justice we seek to make things right, to prosecute rather than persecute. To restore order and balance.

    These characters are very much on the pro-revenge side of things. Justice doesn't really come into it. Somewhere there they stopped trying to actually better their world and started looking to make themselves FEEL better by hurting others. What a crappy comic.

    In the words of Zero Wing:

  • TBTabby
    To make Ryan Choi's death even more rage-inducing, it happened in the middle of Asian Heritage Month.

    Of course, someone was tortured for information. And the information was completely accurate, because torture is just like the Lasso of Truth. Just once, I'd like to see a story where someone uses torture to gain information and then discovers that the information was false. People will say ANYTHING to make the pain stop, including lies.

    And this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to fridging, people. I don't want to spoil it for the people who haven't read it, but Ian Sattler actually defended the worst of them at a press conference, claiming that it meant the story had "weight and emotion." Ugh, no.
  • brick mooncode
    To quote Eddie from Reservoir Dogs, "If you fucking beat this prick long enough, he'll tell you he started the goddamn Chicago fire, now that don't necessarily make it fucking so!" And to quote Vic from Reservoir Dogs, "Listen kid, I'm not gonna bullshit you, all right? I don't give a good fuck what you know, or don't know, but I'm gonna torture you anyway, regardless."
  • Angelic Plague
    Justice! It rolls on clear!

    Justice lasts twice as long as the leading brand!

    Open up a cool, refreshing bottle of Justice today!

    The best part of wakin' up is Justice in your cup!

    I can't wait for more justice related ads!

    Oh boy were to begain?....

    ok one TOTALLY not how hal jordan should act. Come on every one knows hal jordan has a sense of humor, right? I mean that was always his thing, his green constructs always kind of made fun of the villain they where plumbing.

    second WRONG Hal does not hate bruce wayne, in fact he gave him his ring once trying to help Bruce resolve his inner demons(although the only thing of value to come out of it was awesome but temporary green lantern batman suit.) it still showed that they had a mutual respect not even batman and superman share.

    some writers really need to pull there heads out of there respective asses if you'll pardon my french

    P.S. Hal jordon is a freaking space cop and he my not always agree with the Guardians,but he does his job like any good law enforcement should. totally the wrong character to center one of the main story arcs on. FAIL!
  • Sockpuppet
    100% agree with your last point-- I'd have expected Green Arrow to make that speech more than the disciplined, self-controlled Hal Jordan. I could MAYBE see him suggesting that the League work together more closely and plan better, that sort of thing, but Hal is not Dirty Harry, he's NOT the "loose cannon cop" by any stretch of the imagination.

    And frankly, Green Arrow is too liberal to go along with that "shoot first and ask questions later" view, either. The only reason I could see him going along with Hal in this case is to try and talk sense to him!
  • Obstreperous
    Arrow joined Lantern not for justice, not for the league, but for his loyalty to green color-themed heroes.
