Played strictly for laughs, this refreshingly irreverent title features a goofier version of the straitlaced Justice League. In it, such second-string superheroes as the Blue Beetle, Mary Marvel, and the Elongated Man behave decidedly unheroically, squabble among themselves, and parody genre cliches. In this story arc, buffoonish Booster Gold inadvertently uses a mystic artifact to send the heroes to a hellish dimension full of comical demons. They escape, but to a parallel universe in which they encounter their evil doubles. Giffen and J. M. DeMatteis' droll script is the main attraction, and Kevin McGuire's low-key, unadorned art captures the tone perfectly. Hard-core comics fans, especially those who dislike the dark and gritty approach the genre has taken in recent years, may best appreciate this spoof of superheroes, the protagonists of which have long inhabited their own little corner of the DC universe. Given recent developments in the company's somber, no-fooling-around titles that saw several of these characters meet grim fates, this may be this team's final outing, at least as figures of fun.
