    Thumbs up Anyone picking up JLI for OMAC?

    OMAC is now a part of Justice League International and it seems as though his story is continuing where it left off at the end of OMAC (the cancelled series).
    Are you buying Justice League International for OMAC like I am?

    No I loved Omac, but the writing in JLI hasn't really been good I feel like a lot of the characters except for Booster and Batman really have inconsequential roles on the team, they don't really contribute much to the book, they are just their as draws but don't progress the story in a meaningful way.


    I can already assume how the Omac encounter does without even reading the issue. There is some big fight, the team is battling Omac,there will be a pause in the fight, and they realize its a big understanding, than either Omac will join the team or adi them in fighting the real threat, which might be the villain being hinted at in future solicits or it maybe a segway for the Firestorms about to come on to this book. Either way not interested aside from Booster no one seems to be given a real chance to shine in this book

    Well yeah, but it was actually pretty enjoyable and it's more complicated than that.
    (SPOILER)
    They're keeping him around because he is unstable and they need to control him because he can't control himself at times. But after they handle the Firestorm thing, they're going to help him figure out what went wrong with him.

    well if I hear good things and I keep hearing good things maybe I'll jump back on this book, but I stayed on this title early on, longer than I normally would have in the hopes it would improve so I am a little hessitant to jump back on this book

    I was ready to drop JLI but since OMAC is joining I'm going to stick around.

    No, if the writing wasn't terrible I would be buying it for Batwing, Vixen, Fire, Ice, August and Guy

    Booster is cool and Guy is well written, but I will sacrifice them both and drop this book (and get GLC for Guy anyway). Apart from them, Godiva and AGIA, the characters suck hard.
    I would like to say for the record that this is the FIRST TIME I've withheld dong when someone was so desperately asking for some.

    this book really depresses me on how bad it is

    This kind of reminded me of the GL movie
    you know, i think is a movie that has this elements to actually make a very good movie, but some lead nowhere nor are well used

    its the same case here
    he have elements, characters and situations that could be very good
    but they arent

    because the writing just sucks

    all the characters could be good and their interactions with one another but here is just dull

    a change of writer might make this book work

    i seriously ask
    why isnt Winick writing this?
    he is the writer of Batwing, he is familiar with booster and batman
    he could definitely turn this book into something good

    I think I would love this book had it been more along the lines of JLI: GL but the reboot changes to the team / people who make up the team has made me not interested at all.
