Justice League Infinity 5, cover, 2021, Meghan HetrickTITLE: Justice League Infinity #5
AUTHORS: J.M. DeMatteis, James Tucker
ARTISTS: Ethen Beavers, Nick Filardi (Colorist), DC Hopkins (Letterer). Cover by Meghan Hetrick.
RELEASED: November 2, 2021

We get a lot thrown at us here. We’ve got Superman teaming with an alt-Earth Superman and a team of alt-Earth supervillains to fight a Nazi regime led by Vandal Savage. And it’s all narrated by Martian Manhunter. Oh, and the multiverse as we know it is falling apart. It works. But it’s definitely a lot to take in.

On the upside, Batman doesn’t get shoehorned into the center of things the way he does in a lot of modern Justice League stories. That’s how you know DeMatteis and Tucker are good at what they do.

A Justice League Infinity #3 Micro-Review – Multiverse Fatigue

TITLE: Justice League Infinity #3
AUTHOR: J.M. DeMatteis, James Tucker
ARTISTS: Ethen Beavers, Nick Filardi (Colorist), Tom Napolitano (Letterer). Cover by Dan Mora.
RELEASED: September 7, 2021

Both DC and Marvel have been leaning into multiverse stories lately. As such, three issues in I’ve got a little bit of multiverse fatigue when it comes to Justice League Infinity.

I’ll grant, though, that it’s somewhat interesting to see the Calvin Ellis Superman, a.k.a. the African American Superman (see the cover at right) drawn in that DC Animated Universe style. There’s not much substance to his part of this story. Not yet, at least. But it’s cool to see.
