"They made the wrong damn decision!"
The above quote was uttered by a very disappointed man named Jerry Bails . Bails, a longtime fan of comic books and of the Justice Society in particular was referring to the 1986 " Last Days Of The Justice Society of America " comic book.
The book dealt with the elder members of the JSA - The Jay Garrick Flash, the Alan Scott Green Lantern, the Al Pratt Atom, and others, NOT by declaring them as elder statesmen , or by having them as mentors to the younger heroes. (Many interesting stories could have been told with Wally getting advice from Jay Garrick.) I realize that DC wanted there to be only ONE Flash , ONE Green Lantern, etc. BUT, these characters deserved respect. They had more than earned it over the many years.
The story, in and of itself, is passable. The team, with the JLA - some bearing their names, as well as other teams of super heroes functioning , are beginning to feel old and outmoded. The heroes, at the funeral of the Earth 2's Robin and Huntress (Although Crisis # 12 stated that their bodies were never found, that was quickly changed due to fan speculation. After all, " If you don't SEE a body) are startled by the arrival of a battered Spectre.
