In the five years that the Justice League has been a team, Green Arrow has never once been a member. And he intends to rectify that right here, right now! One member against his candidacy: Aquaman!
Plus, in “The Curse of Shazam” part 2, Billy arrives in his new foster home just as an ancient evil is uncovered halfway across the world.
This issue is also offered as a special combo pack edition, polybagged with a redemption code for a digital download of this issue.
In the times before Crisis, Green Arrow was the first hero to join the team save for the starting roster, and this was clarified post Crisis during JLA Year One when the book ended with them talking about admitting Green Arrow as a fulltime member. So to know that Ollie has been completely removed from the League? If anything, it makes me wonder just how long he’s been around in this new canon.
