A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 187
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today, we see what happens when two mad scientists team up to create a Justice Leaguer!
JLA #5 was the first issue after the first story arc had concluded, and Grant Morrison and Howard Porter used it for a standalone issue (this issue was also the first one to feature Superman in his “Blue Superman” form) where we see that former League villains, Dr. Ivo and T.O. Morrow (creators of Amazo and Red Tornado, respectively), have teamed up to create the latest member of the Justice League (unbenown to the Justice League themselves, of course), Tomorrow Woman!
However, you know how these things go, so she decided to fight back, even though she literally cannot conceive of a life with freedom…
SO many great moments, but I suppose I would have to go with the bit where she’s trying to say she did it for freedom, but she doesn’t have the word in her vocabulary.
There are a lot of challengers, though, for best moment in the issue, from Superman’s words at the funeral at the end to Ivo and Morrow’s back and forths – this was a great issue.
