The Secret Society of Supervillains never did work out so well.
First off, it wasn’t really all that secret and the one time they all decided to work together, the heroes fended them off in one issue.
Perhaps what they needed was a more business-like approach.
Now let’s see… which villain might have the kind of acumen needed to get the most out of a collective of ne’re-do-wells?
How about, Lex Luthor?
Luthor, Superman’s No. 1 baddie, gathers up some of the heaviest hitters in the DC Universe, dubs them Injustice League Unlimited, and takes aim at the newest incarnation of the Justice League in this second collection of the new series — and they aren’t messing around.
Are even the combined might of all the forces of good gathered for the pending wedding of Black Canary and Green Arrow enough to stop them?
Well, yeah, but you’ve got to read it to believe it.
Veteran DC animation writer Dwayne McDuffie finally gets his crack at penning the original JLA and he gets things started with a bang alongside an all-star group of artists including Ed Benes, Mike McKone and Joe Benitez.
