After Earth 2 #1 I was not quite satisfied and told myself to give it one or two more issues. Well after reading issue #2 without hesitation it has been added to my pull list. This arc starts to build and develop the characters that will be involved in this series. It begins with a confused Mr.Terrific teleporting in and being approached by a man who intends to kill him all while the surroundings inform you it is five years past since issue one where Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and many more gave up there lives to save the world. Meanwhile the Flash is getting his powers from a god and Alan Scott is returning from a trip to meet up with his boyfriend Sam.
The plot to this issue is much more involved then the last issue, more happens in one page then most whole issues. With that within just a few pages you are growing to love these characters. The story moved fast and left us with many interesting excursions.
Each character was written well and very realistically. When the Flash was speaking to Mercury he kept falling back to “we need to get you to a hospital” rather then just accepting what he was being told. As far as Alan Scott, he spoke like a true businessman and the wonderful relationship we see him in truly felt real. The dialogue alone could sell this book.
The art was exciting and bold and fit the fast passed strong story it was portraying.
The book was a great length, but like I said before much was told with few pages so you really are getting a lot of story in this single issue.
I would say you could easily read this without reading issue one and not really be all that lost, it may even be more enjoyable to do such being you will piece what happened together simple by the news casts going on in the background.
This issue was great, one hundred times stronger then the first issue, the characters were written in a way that they sounded real and the amount of cliffhangers and explosive art made this issue more than amazing, I have not one negative thing to say. (9/10)

Beginning was kind of blah to be honest; the whole scenario/battle left me not caring of what was going on. Thoroughly enjoyed Batman having Flash flank the enemy by vibrating through the wall, as well as Superman with a mass of heat vision to free himself from under the chunk of steel. At first Cyborg’s voice was a turn off but then remembering he is supposed to be young, it grew on me and the character, also loved when his arm was ripped off. They could have been more creative with the whole Mirrorman in the batmobile but the whole idea of it being Batman’s plans that actually put the JLA in this situation was quite brilliant. At points through the movie I found myself forgetting what other characters were going through being it was going through all their separate problems all at once, getting wrapped in one issue to then go to Manhunter well still on fire. With this, one more complaint of just not being enough team work when it came to the fight scenes, would have loved to see anyone brawling side by side, but this movie really was not that which could have been a point they were trying to make that in the end they needed each other to save the day. In addition to what was said earlier, the Comic Irredeemable could not get out of my head when Batman admitted that he had plans to defeat or well distract all JLA members in case they were to turn evil, which in my opinion was the plot twist that made this movie greatness it is. As you can see there are many things I was hoping to see in this film and did not, but without a doubt this was still an excellent purchase. The Story was great jumping right into action but still with such a gradually but strong build up to an epic finish, also the character designs and personalities were all perfect, even though new 52 outfits would have been nice this is defiantly one of DC’s top animated film, we here at Modern Age Comics give it a 9/10
