We’re ending our discussion about legacy characters by talking about “JSA: Black Vengeance” by Geoff Johns. In this book, the young members of the JSA travel back in time to inspire the team’s original heroes after being disbanded by HUAC. We bring in our discussion of Starman with Courtney Whitmore while also talking about the overall theme of legacy that’s all over this trade paperback. But more than that, how is Per Degaton this goofy while also being this evil? What’s up with Atom Smasher? How disrupted and rushed is the story with the Infinite Crisis tie-in?

Perhaps one of the largest projects ever undertaken in all of comics, DC’s weekly title “52” came out every Wednesday, without any delays, for an entire year. It wove together storylines from across the publisher’s universe and highlighted the rich world crafted by decades of brilliant creators. We’re going to read all of it. This week, we read volume one and give our first impressions of the characters and mull over how the stories are set up.
