Justice League Europe Annual #2 1991

Justice League Europe Annual #2 1991
"Too Much Time"
Keith Giffen, Story - A ton of folks, art

This story is part of the Armageddon 2001 storyline (it's ten years in the future only 9 years ago. Neat, huh?) of which I didn't read any of it. From what I can surmise Waverider is trying to find out who Monarch is going to be so he contacts the JLI and looks into their future.

The weird thing (What?!?! Something weird with the JLE? Say it ain't so!) is that each of the members of the JLE have a bizarre future. Rocket Red ends up in Arthurian times and meets the Demon (with Marshall Rogers art), Power Girl is in 1940's London teamed with General Glory, Silver Sorceress is in prehistoric times with Anthro, Elongated Man meets H.G. Wells, The Crimson Fox is in the old west with Bat Lash, Blue Jay gets rejected by the Legion of Superheroes, and Metamorpho gets thrown into the future and... Well, It's best if I just show ya.
and guess who the stranger with the weird accent, pistol, and full face mask is. Anyone?
Yup, it's Jonah Hex in the far flung future and it's funny because Metamorpho's name is Rex, just one letter from Hex. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I laughed so hard I broke all my furniture!

Sheesh, to think I paid about $2 on ebay for this book. Such is the cross I bear to bring you this blog.

Jonah did manage to get around.

Two bucks? Well, at least you didn't pay more than cover price... :P

BTW, if you want, I'll scan JH#88 for you (a special issue for me: my first expsoure to Jonah Hex!).

colour me ornery, but I like it. I can't get enough of Giffen's artwork from that period, and what's not to love with Jonah in the future. I know Jonah's return to his present remains unexplained, but has Metamorpho ever been officially rescued from Mad Max land?

Susan said...

Replying to Daza:

The Metamorpho incident was retconned by the end of the story, as were all the time-traveling Leaguer scenes featured in the issue...it's complicated, but what it amounts to is that everything in the story was erased before it actually happened because Waverunner prevented some minor event from occurring.

Jonah was still stuck in the future, though. :P
