An interesting tease considering Generation Zero on FCBD 2020 will deal with zero hour’ing / fixing the existing timeline and setting up a new DC 5G one potentially.

The Pulse:

I figured this book was building to something, but I didn’t know it was building to DC’s next event. It was clear though that whatever JLO was building it would involve time. An entertaining and intriguing plot, an often unwieldly cast of characters, rendered with just ok art. Strength was the story. 6.5 out of 10.
