Justice League Unlimited ended its run on Cartoon Network nearly 20 years ago. In fact, this year marks the 20th anniversary of the series, when it was simply titled, Justice League.
DC, seeing how well Batman: The Adventures Continue did last year, decided to take the next step with a new miniseries based on JLU.
Justice League Infinity is co-written by veteran TV & comics writer J. Marc DeMatteis, who was a principal writer on the show, and producer James Tucker. Artist Ethen Beavers is making his DC debut, but worked on the series as a artist at WB.
The plot is simple. While the Martian Manhunter has taken leave of the League after the series' conclusion, he has set out on a journey to learn more about Earth life. Meanwhile, Amazo, the android programmed with the powers of the League, is on a quest of his own, to seek & discover his true purpose. Now, Amazo was repackaged for television as a golden construct with red eyes and no nose or mouth. He was treated as more of a sympathetic character in his appearances on JLU, and that continues here.
While the League celebrates the birthday of the Flash (Wally West), the party is disrupted by warring factions from Apokolips. See, when JLU ended, Darkseid was killed off, though he remains a major player in main line DC continuity. Something tells me ol' crater-face will return before this is all over.
This and the TV show should be fun.
