They are the World's greatest super heroes. But the members of the fabled Justice League of America are about to learn they aren't the only ones who can band together toward a common goal. The deadliest criminal masterminds of our time appear to be acting in concert - with a surprising plan that seeks to achieve more good than the JLA ever could...

Justice: Volume 1 sees the members of the Justice League of America discovering that an army of super villains has banded together to perform great acts of heroism.

Just why are these super villains starting to atone for their crimes? - seeding deserts, healing the sick and promising much, much more. Meanwhile, a series of surgical strikes cripples the JLA. But is Lex Luthor's attempt to discredit and destroy the JLA just another sick plan? Or are his nightmares of Armageddon due to come true?

This collection opens with an interesting introduction by Jim Krueger about the mind of the villain and how in their eyes, they are the good guys.

There are quite a few addition pages in this collection which come under the heading "From Bruce Wayne's private files in the Batcomputer". These show rough sketches and panels from the pages of Justice, which are accompanied by explanatory text.

Another interesting collection, which puts a twist on an old theme. One thing is certain though, you'll never see villains in the same light again.
