Justice League vs Godzilla vs Kong is a seven issue series collaboration between DC Comics and Legendary Comics. The first issue introduces the crossover by interrupting a date between Clark Kent and Lois Lane. Superman wants to ask Lois to marry him and take a proper vacation, since he never has. Of course, this is the perfect time for things to go awry.
Twelve hours earlier, the rest of the Justice League try to take care of the situation on their own when Lex Luthor and his league of super villains attempt to steal the Mother Box. I love seeing the villains try to work together because it’s just not in their nature. Toyman thinks he knows best, but he accidentally activates the Mother Box. Now things are starting to get fun. Toyman sent all of the villains to Skull Island, where they came face to face with King Kong. Only Gorilla Grodd seems excited by the prospect.
To make matters worse, they find themselves with access to all of the titans. Toyman wants to set them loose, and now Godzilla is in Metropolis. So much for Clark and Lois’ date. Unfortunately, that’s all we get so far from Godzilla, but there are still six issues left to explore and see what side Kong and Godzilla choose.
Justice League vs Godzilla vs Kong is such a fun concept, and I can’t wait to see what else is in store. So far, the story is only just getting started, which made the first issue a bit less exciting than I was hoping. I enjoyed seeing all of the characters that they are pulling in, and I can’t wait to get more from Kong and Godzilla, since they weren’t in this all that much.
Writer Brian Buccellato, Artist Christian Duce, and Colorist Luis Gerrero did a great job bringing these worlds together. The pages are bright and action packed. Is it too much to ask for Clark and Lois’ proposal to come to fruition by the end of the seven issue run? Possibly. But I’m curious to see where the story goes and how the super villains are going to fit. Are Godzilla and Kong going to be misunderstood monsters? Will they fight with the Justice League by the end? Only time will tell. While this first issue wasn’t my favorite, I’m enjoying the collaboration enough to continue the run. Justice League vs Godzilla vs Kong is available now at your local comic book shop.
