Publisher’s Summary: Starfire makes a crushing discovery, Beast Boy uncovers a shocking betrayal, and Cyborg and Wonder Woman are forced to make decisions that will have devastating repercussions for all four teams…and potentially for those they left behind on Earth.
Just when the four teams begin to push ahead and make some progress toward saving the universe, they’re set back. If our defenders do manage to win and rectify the situation somehow, their triumph will resonate for some time because as things stand, all hope is gone.
Justice League: No Justice (2018-) #3 is yet again packed with great moments and interesting interactions, but what stands out most is the overwhelming feeling that all hope is gone. As seen throughout the Metal event, Scott Snyder has a way of setting readers up for heartbreak; when it appears as though the good guys are getting ahead, they’re set back, and when the situation can’t seem to get much worse, it somehow does. Heroes, as well as readers, are able to break the surface and take in a breath of fresh air only after reaching the bottom and coming to the realization that they never had a chance of surviving. And that is exactly what’s happening in Justice League: No Justice.
I spoke some about Scott Snyder, but really, the combined efforts of Snyder, Tynion, and Williamson, along with the amazing artists who have worked on these books, are paying off. Justice League: No Justice (2018-) #3 is another great issue, and I can’t wait to see how this mini-series ends. I don’t know for sure if this story is going to get tied up in the next issue, but I sure hope it doesn’t; I hope that the effects of Justice League: No Justice are similar to those of Metal and last.
The Bottom Line:
Justice League: No Justice (2018-) #3 is another solid issue in what has proven to be an exciting mini-series. Despite being unsure of what resolution, or lack thereof, it may bring, I am looking forward to issue four of four.
