Back after an extended break for something a little bit different… attempting to answer the question as to why the Justice League didn’t just pop into Gotham City and save the day. I say “attempting”, because we really don’t get much in the way of an actual answer… but, we get some fun action with some throwaway baddies from JLA: Year One all the same.

The Bada-Bin!

One thought on “NML Crossing, Episode 083 – JLA #32 (1999)

  • This was certainly a change of pace from our regularly scheduled No Man’s Land stories. I didn’t even remember that Locus was a thing. They seem like generic villain organization #32. This did kind of build on the Young Justice Special’s events though. At the end of that issue Lagoon Boy and his whale with mechanical arms buddy stopped a Kobra submarine from getting to Gotham, and here we see that other criminal organizations are also trying to get into Gotham and take it over. It’s nice to see all of DC’s lesser villain groups take a page from old Nicholas Scratch’s playbook and try to use No Man’s Land Gotham as a base to take over the world from.

    What I found most interesting about this issue was Huntress’ relationship with the JLA. She basically abandoned the JLA when she chose to stay in Gotham after the NML declaration, yet they still accept her as one of their own. In contrast to how she was trying to be accepted by Batman in the NML and was cast out of the Bat-family when she didn’t live up to his standards. I’m not sure which acceptance means more to her.

    Huntress has become my favorite character in the No Man’s Land story. I’m looking forward to seeing where her character arc ends up taking her.

    Glad that your back on the air. Don’t be sorry for not putting out episodes when you are not feeling it. This should be fun for you as well as the audience. Don’t make this a job that has to be done. Let be something you want to do, not something you have to do.
