Presenting a joint podcast production with Peter from The Daily Rios podcast (where you can also listen and subscribe to The Legion Project), where we will discuss, issue by issue, the 1984 Legion of Super-Heroes (volume 3) series affectionately known as the “Baxter run” (starting with the “Eye for an Eye” story line).

Tales of the Justice Society of America #24

0d9c

And lo there came a day… a day like other Fridays… where Scott Gardner and Michael Bailey band together to discuss the adventures of the single greatest super-hero team of all time…THE JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA!

This week. Scott and Mike begin their look at the legendary (or maybe not-so-legendary) team-ups between the JSA and the JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA in their own title! This time out, the stories are… well, they don’t suck (for the most part), but they don’t exactly set Scott and Mike on fire with excitement, either (though they hear that there’s ointment for that now).

In JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #s 135 thru 137, the heroes of Earth-1 and Earth-2 team up with the heroes of Earth-S and Boy, is this goofy!! I mean, for one thing, two of the characters are named Mr. Scarlet and Pinky, the Whiz Kid. You just can’t make that sort of thing up!! This story also promises the FIRST titanic meeting between Superman and Captain Marvel!! And what should have been the throw-down to end all throw-downs… sadly, wasn’t.

Then, in issues 147 and 148, the JLA and JSA team-up once again. Only this time, they are joined with the LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES to battle Mordru!! Mike and Scott really don’t have a whole heck of a lot to say about this story because, frankly, it was the very definition of “meh”. Oh, sure… they talk about how Power Girl seems to have some sort of freaky, unnatural, backwoods, redneck attraction to the Earth-1 Superman, but, for the second time this episode, what should have been an EPIC storyline involving the greatest heroes of three eras… sadly, wasn’t.

Oh, and Scott meets his idol at show’s end… but it doesn’t go well…

“Required Reading” for next week — JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA (Vol. 1) #s 159, 160, 171, and 172!!
