A meeting has been called with every member of the All-Star Squadron and the Justice Society present. There are a number of topics to discuss such as the eight missing members of the Society who are lost in a realm called hyperspace and maybe just as important, the fate of the female robot called Mekanique. There is only one thing standing in the way of the Squadron doing what they feel they need to do – Robotman! All-Star Squadron continues to get back in fighting form with a fun issue featuring nearly every single member that has ever been a member of the Squadron or the JSA. It is always a good time and a cool scene to see when there is a big meeting taking place and seeing them all together always gives the reader a sense of wonder and puts a smile on your face. What is a little strange about the Squadron in this issue is how they can be so close-minded to the fact that Mekanique could be a living being. They have dealt with the Nazis and with racists and the like before and they know all about what it is like to be different and to be persecuted for being so. Seeing them do this with only Robotman and his partner standing up for Mekanique is a little strange. Yes, there might be a danger to the public, but they not have considered that Robotman has it all under control. And if they did not think so, at the very least they could lend a hand instead. What happens is a very hostile Robotman, astounded that his friends can think the way they do, or at least him thinking that they do, battling it out for the fate of an unknown quantity. With drama, action and a backup tale featuring the Spectre, the latest issue by Roy Thomas and Arvell Jones is a good one.
