Apparently Peraxxus can't find a copy of the Arkham City game.

Justice League International #4

DC Comics (February, 2012)

WRITER: Dan Jurgens
PENCILER: Aaron Lopresti
INKER: Matt Ryan
COLORS: Hi-Fi
COVER: David Finch, Rich Friend, & Peter Steigerwald
LETTERER: Travis Lanham
EDITOR: Rex Ogle

Peraxxus is in the winner’s circle. Numerous times the JLI and Guy try to take him and his forces down. All them manage is to learn what Peraxxus has in store for the Earth and the origin of the Signal Men, who are ready to activate their final protocol.

What they got right: We finally have the origin of the villain of this piece, Peraxxus, and the JLI are still struggling. This is only good because there’s only one chapter left to this story so if they’re going to finally come together and prove themselves, that’s the time to do it. This is a good set-up for the final battle.

What they got wrong: Where’s the regular Justice League during all this? Assuming this is a “modern” story, shouldn’t they be doing something right about now, even if the JLI are the ones to come out on top by the end of the story?

Recommendation: One of the two “New 52″ I’ve been collecting and my favorite of the duo. Very much recommended for fun superhero story fans. And with Jurgens set to start co-writing the other one, I may be able to stick with DC just a while longer.

I could have gone with the Guy Gardner abuse, but I do love these "kick his butt" scenes.
