A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 150

by  in Comic News Comment

Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!

Today would be a very special number if we were a comic book, so we need a very special moment for today…hmmm…how about the first of two great moments from the time the JLA had to fight angels!!

Enjoy!

Okay, to set the scene, in JLA #6, by Grant Morrison and Howard Porter, some bad angels have made some sort of arrangement with the demon Neron and they are after an angel who knows of their deal. They chase him to Earth.

To take Superman out of the picture, the demons decide to mess with the moon, which is where the Justice League headquarters is. They figured that would take Superman out of the picture.

It did not, as we saw in JLA #7 by the same creative team…





That’s when you knew Morrison REALLY had something cooking on JLA, when he used Blue Superman’s new energy powers to good effect!

He was handed Blue Superman and he managed to still make it iconic.

That’s so special it deserves the 150th spot.

“The” moment for me, by the way, is probably the full-page splash.
