In the aftermath of the Infinite Crisis, and their subsequent year long absence from the world, Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman have returned with renewed purpose - and ready to form an all-new team of Earth's mightiest heroes. It's decision time, as the world's three greatest heroes debate who will form the new Justice League. Meanwhile, the Red Tornado regains his humanity as Solomon Grundy attempts to regain his soul; and a terrifying new threat to the world is revealed - one that may destroy the new Justice League before they even get started...

After the darkest hour of the DC Universe, Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman meet to once again choose who among Earth's greatest heroes will comprise the new Justice League of America. But while they meet in secret to decide the fate of the team, dark forces move against their friends and allies.

A mysterious organisation has helped the android Justice Leaguer known as Red Tornado to transfer his consciousness into the human body he's always coveted. But their motives may not have Red Tornado's best interests in mind. Instead, this is only the first step in a sinister conspiracy of super-villains.

To save their friend and the world, the Justice League of America will have to rise again, better than ever before. But who will answer the call?

New York Times best-selling author Brad Meltzer redefines the JLA for a new generation in this hardcover collecting the first six issues of the all-new Justice League of America series.

There are some great touches in this collection. I particularly loved the fact that Superman and Wonder Woman keep something (I won't spoil what though) from Batman when they are picking the future members of the JLA. The fact they discuss this behind his back brings back the mistrust issues that I thought had been put behind us after the events in Infinite Crisis. Thankfully, it seems, this was just the start of the problem.
