Justice League United #10 review

With the threat of Infinitus over, Justice League United and the Legion of Super-Heroes have just one small matter to tie up – the black hole Brainiac 5 created while trying to save the day. Now it threatens to not only pull the heroes in, but to absorb the entire world of Thanagar. Brainy needs […]
