The Comic Book Fools of April – The Justice League Goes to French Class

by  in Comic News Comment

Every day in April I will be featuring a humorous comic (either an issue or a series of strips) that I found particularly amusing. Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com the comic stories that are your favorites when it comes to hilarity, and I’ll see if I can’t feature some of them this month, as well!

Today we look at the time that a bunch of members of Justice League Europe ended up in the same French class as the Injustice League! Hilarity courtesy of writers Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis and artists Bart Sears and Pablo Marcos…

The gist of the issue is as follows. Justice League International recently opened up a separate branch of the Justice League in Europe. However, almost all of the team members are American, so that causes a bit of a problem when they find themselves headquartered in France. So the members of the team who don’t speak French go to a night school to learn the language. Meanwhile, the comically inept Injustice League are in Europe (with the theory being that there are less superheroes there), but they, too, find themselves in a jam when they can’t rob banks effectively without knowing the language, so they, too, end up in French class – the same French class as the JLE, naturally!

This is the intro of the scene…


and here we see things play themselves to a fever pitch…
