The JSA Are Breaking Up — Who Gets To Keep Ma Hunkel?
There's some old song about breaking up being hard to do, but we know that's not true for super hero teams. It's been happening all the time lately. What is hard, though, is being a fan caught in the middle. It forces some uncomfortable taking-of-sides, you know? Especially when it comes to the Justice Society - that team is friggin' huge.
DC's The Source has preview pages from the issue that splits the Justice Society into two teams and two titles, the old-school "Justice Society of America" by Bill Willingham, Travis Moore and Dan Green and the Magog/Power Girl fueled "JSA All Stars" by Matthew Sturges and Freddie Williams II.
Given the team's recent drama, it wouldn't be surprising if the team split on less than awesome terms.
if things get messy it could be bad. The team has shared its resources so well until now that it's hard to imagine the Brownstone they party down at half capacity. How will resident matron Ma Hunkel help out two teams? Plus, it looks like Liberty Belle has taken up her Jesse Quick persona again in "Flash Rebirth," leaving her husband Hourman all alone on a new team. In the words of Kenan Thompson, "What up with that?!"
All these questions and more may or may not be answered in this week's "Justice Society of America" #33.
