In Review: Justice Society of America (2022-) #2


Synopsis: THE NEW GOLDEN AGE CONTINUES! Huntress has arrived in the present day, but the Justice Society of America are not what she remembers. Can she get to the bottom of what’s happened to the world’s first superhero team? Will the helmet of Fate hold the answers Huntress seeks?


The Story

After having been sent back through time by Selina Kyle. Helena aka The Huntress finds herself in 1940 where she has been rescued by that era’s version of the Justice Society. When asked if she is okay by Jay Garrick. Helena tells him that she is from the future and traversed back through time to speak with Dr. Fate who might be able to find out who killed all the members of her JSA from the present day.

As Dr. Fate tried to help. He finds himself transported to the near future where he has an unusual green-skinned apprentice. However, he is finally able to find a few fragments of Helena’s life that he connects to.


The Artwork

Jerry Ordway and Scott Kolins do a solid job on the artwork. I loved the panels where Fate finds himself with an Apprentice and how their meeting is interrupted by Soloman Grundy. I loved the colour choices for the parts of the comic that are set in 1940. Colorist Jordie Bellaire does some solid work and has obviously given some thought to the type of color pallet that was available to artists during the golden age.



Geoff Johns continues to deliver a fairly compelling story. And it’s going to be fun finding out exactly who the mysterious stranger is that Helena has been seeing out of the corner of her eye since she was 10 years old. Hopefully, we will get to hang out in the 1940s for a while before Helena gets to the bottom of the mystery.
