The Justice League and the Power Rangers make a final stand against Braniac and Lord Zedd.
The cover by Karl Kerschl is cool. The image of the League flying alongside the Zords is an awesome image. It’s bright, colorful and fun.
The interior art by Stephen Byrne is amazing. He has an animated style that energizes the book. The colors are vibrant and characters are expressive. It’s easy to get sucked into the issue just based on Byrne’s art.
There are a lot of bad ass moments. I’m not sure how else to describe it; I like finales because it’s satisfying and fun to see the heroes outsmart the villains in some way. There are three moments in particular like that in this issue that are awesome. One of which involves Kimberly shooting a boxing glove arrow; that’s my favorite moment of the issue.
It’s not a huge problem but the Justice League does take a bit of a backseat here. Cyborg is the only one that really contributes in taking out the big threats. The rest of the League mainly contends with the foot soldiers. And when Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern go after Zedd, he swats them away like flies. I don’t mind the Rangers taking center stage but this issue feels less like a team up and more of a Power Rangers thing.
This is a great finale. It’s fun and filled with cool action. The Power Rangers get several moments to shine in an awesome battle. The art is incredible with a lot of standout moments. I wish the League had a little more to do but it’s still a lot of fun. I recommend reading this issue.
