Back in Action Comics #1000, which saw Brian Bendis' first Superman story, drawn by Jim Lee and Scott Williams, the lead story by Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund saw Superman welcomed by a group of his peers. At the time there was a little disquiet that the supervillain Harley Quinn, and gun-wielding assassin/mervenary Deathstroke were part of that welcoming crowd.
Of course, this is now changing as Wonder Woman was there before any of them. But anyway. From Superman #19 by Bendis, Ivan Reis and Joe Prado, we had this welcoming scene. Which seemed to indicate that murdering psychopath has joined the Justice League. With no one else in the League blinking an eye.
And that's without enquiring as to whether certain individuals aren't meant to be on the other side of the galaxy, Anyway. To be continued in Superman: Heroes which was then scheduled to, indeed, be out later last month. It's now been pushed back a bit, to this coming Wednesday, and its followup Superman: Villains to March 4th. But, as well as having characters who should have been at the other side of the galaxy at this point, it had Harley Quinn again, round the Justice League table. All has been forgiven since Heroes In Crisis?
I understand that this will be addressed… but it did look rather weird.
