They are the greatest heroes in the world: the Justice League of America.
They have saved the planet from destruction countless times, they keep the forces of evil at bay and even have a chance to pull a cat out of a tree from time to time. But even the best can save everybody. Can they?
Pain Of The Gods, written by Chuck Austen with art by Ron Garney, is a fascinating examination of the limitations of even the greatest of powers.
Spotlighting one of the six core members of the League — Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern and the Martian Manhunter — in each of the six issues which make up this volume, readers get to see what how the heroes react when their best simply isn’t enough.
