Justice League: Cry for Justice/YMMV

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Misblamed
    • As mentioned on the trivia page, while he did do a fairly lackluster job overall, Lian Harper's death was not James Robinson's fault (Executive Meddling strikes again!), although it's one of the first things people usually blame him for.
    • A fair number of fans, and even people who aren't comic book readers, have conceded that Robinson's statement at San Diego Comic Con 2010 that he was inspired to cut off Roy Harper's arm as a tribute to Iraq war veterans by creating a superhero with a prosthetic that's not cybernetic was both in very bad taste and an utter dick move, regardless if this was honesty, a bold-faced lie, or something his editors told him to say. He contradicted this statement in the introduction of Cry's trade paperback, saying that the editors told him they wanted to put Roy in this direction. He also made absolutely no mention of his statement at San Diego.
  • Narm: "Welcome to pain."
  • Straw Man Has a Point: Working to actively prevent crimes and super villains isn't a bad idea in itself. It's the way the heroes go about it that undermines their point.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Linkara puts it simply: "Oh my God... a giant, intelligent gorilla and an alien are about to fight robots on jetpacks... WHY IS THIS STORY NOT ABOUT THEM!?"
  • Villain Decay: Deconstructed. Prometheus, a supposed Justice League-level villain that originally challenged the entire League, has been easily defeated in almost all subsequent appearances and despite retaining the same power and skills. This series explains that all those appearances were an impostor posing as Prometheus and follows the original's efforts to regain his reputation and exact revenge. This Retcon happened in a one shot before this mini came out.
  • Villain Sue: A lot of Prometheus' time in this mini is over compensating for his previous Villain Decay by making him nigh-unbeatable until Green Arrow kills him.
