Title: The Crime Syndicate Thread

Anyone else enjoying this twisted take on the Justice League? I love the array of characters. Reminds me of Marvel's first Exiles series.

the solicitations for issue #5

(https://static3.cbrimages.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/CS-Cv5.jpg?q=50&fit=crop&w=740&h=1137&dpr=1.5)

The Crime Syndicate crosses the line for the last timeÖand Alexander Luthor demands justice! Earth-3's Luthor, Savanna, Venus, Power Tower, Red Hood, Lonar, and Thaal Sinestro band together to form the Legion of Justice and defend their world at all costs. Will the looming threat of the Legion stand in the way of Owlman, Superwoman, and Ultraman's quest for global takeover? It all builds to a cliffhanger that will leave you on the edge of your seat!
Question of the month: Who is Luthor's secret weapon?
Also, in this issue's backup, witness the origin story of Johnny Quick, illustrated by Bryan Hitch!

So! It hit the DCI and I almost missed it; cuz 2 books were waiting for me!

I enjoy the small subtle changes from the past Crime Syndicate knowledge. Although, I do miss some of the changes; I didn't need Ultraman to be an actual evil Kryptonian, I liked that he eat anti-kryptonite (right??) to get his powers. I don't think Superwoman is Lois Lane, Power Ring being different doesn't phase me in the slightest. I...can't remember Owlman's origin, but he's always the most fascinating of characters!!

And ever since the cartoon movie, I can simply NOT hear James Woods' deadpan voice as Owlman. It's perfect!

Now I'm sad it's only 6 issues!!

I like that Donna Troy is Superwoman.  Adds a new flavor to it.  Iím enjoying this as well two issues in.
