JLA #7

The cover to JLA (Vol 1) #7
Perspectives be damned!
From Series: JLA (Vol 1)

What Happened:

The evil angel Asmodel is attacking the city of San Francisco in order to lure out Zauriel. Zauriel is an angel who requested mortality and fell to Earth. He also knows about Asmodel’s secret plot to try to finish what Lucifer started and rebel against “The Creator”.

This is weird on many levels. First, why wouldn’t Zauriel let someone know about the secret plot? At least do it before requesting to become a mortal. It’s kind of a really big thing to space on. Keep a todo list man, try to get stuff done everyday!

Second, wouldn’t the creator know about the secret plan the second one of his angels starts attacking earth and almost killing everyone in a city? Does he need everything fed to him through email or something? And which case, why not send him that email? This is what happens when organizations get too big! Who is responsible for sending the creator of the universe the email which lets him know one of his angels is trying to destroy San Francisco?

Probably that new guy Dean.

In other news, the demon Neron is trying to crash the moon into the Earth. Superman is pretty preoccupied with trying to stop this from happening so he cannot help with the evil angels juuuust yet. Superman sets up a neat science fair project which uses his new electrical powers to magnetize the moon and push it away from the Earth.

Flash manages to free himself from being stuck between teleports by vibrating really good. IT’S HOW FLASH SOLVES ALL HIS PROBLEMS.

The Justice League, sans Superman, battle the evil angels. Well, everyone but Aquaman. He’s given the dumb job of saving people stuck in rubble. Wonder Woman and Zauriel manage to break into Asmodel’s ship and destroy his force field keeping anyone from outside the city interfering.

Superman, now with all the free time in the world shows up to battle Asmodel. Just in time too, since it was The Martian Manhunter keeping the evil Angel busy and he is looking pretty grim after a few rounds.

The Flash and Green Lantern decide to be the change they want to see in the world and build a machine which turns Flash’s vibrating into a noise. It’s a noise which is just the right frequency to stop Angels from existing in our reality. The Flash then VIBRATES REAL GOOD (See?!) and all the evil angels are sent back home.

The Justice League return to their moon base, The Watchtower, only to be ambushed by The Key. The Key was the man in the coma from previous issues and woke up after hearing The Justice League’s name. He’s now super powerful and ready to kick the Justice League-rs around!

Back on earth we find out why Zauriel wanted to be a human: to creep on a girl!
