It’s hard to withstand the might of super-strength, super-speed, flight, heat vision, a power ring, a sonic scream, magic and razor-sharp arrows and Batarangs — especially when all of it comes from just one source.

The fifth collection of the latest Justice League monthly series delivers action, action and more action as the android Amazo — whose ability to mimic the powers of every league member makes him one of the team’s deadliest foes — infiltrates the Hall of Justice and starts an eye-popping brawl (courtesy artist Ed Benes) that spans three full issues.

Meanwhile, Vixen finally confesses she’s been borrowing powers from her teammates and gets booted out of the league — just long enough for several of her teammates to help her figure out why her magic totem, the source of her powers, is malfunctioning.

The answer turns the JLA on its ear as Vixen scrambles to keep a nefarious demon-god from rewriting her fellow heroes out of history.
