A creature of unimaginable power and anger has arrived
on Earth, decimating the ranks of the JLA. The surviving members
unravel its secret and fight to prevent it from unleashing
World War III. Batman finally determines that a former member
is the key to salvation, but Plastic Man has no memory of
his super-heroic life. A champion is forced to make a choice
that affects the fate of the world...
against this backdrop is the private struggle the Martian
Manhunter endures in an effort to conquer his fear of fire.
What he didn't expect was to fall in love with his teacher,
the villainous Scorch. And since he did he's not been acting
himself - his temper seems short and he offers to leave Lex
Luthor in a coma. It's not long before the other members of
the JLA are questioning his relationship.
by Fire is an interesting release. Never seen Batman smiling?
He does in this collection. In fact, one of my favourite panels
in this graphic novel is the scene in Arkham Asylum. Here
Joker, Two Face, and all the other inmates, are inexplicably
conscious of the wrongs they have committed. I loved the way
that Joker's trademark grin is replaced by tears and a look
of pure misery.
Mahnke's art slightly elevates this above the normal JLA
collection. Nowhere is this more evident in his twisted renderings
of beasts from other dimensions.
interesting addition to the series.
