Warning! Spoil in advance for Justice League: Last Ride # 5
In the latest issue of Justice League: Last Ride, DC’s greatest team heroes reveal that they have a playbook with trained power combinations that the Avengers se span synergy to shame. Not only does Superman and the Flash unveil an impressive maneuver against their new enemies on Apokolips, but it’s apparently one of the many combination attacks they’ve made and practiced over the years, so they’ve drawn away for the right scenario around the deploy perfect synergy. powers in any given environment.
In previous issues of Justice League: Last Ride by author Chip Zdarsky and artist Miguel Mendonça, the team of heroes has actually not been a team for some time. The previous invasion of Darkseid resulted in huge losses and in turn caused rifts in the team, especially with Batman and Superman blaming each other for mistakes that led to the death of the Marsmanhunter. However, they all came together for a final mission at the request of Green Lantern Hal Jordon, who needs help protecting Lobo before his trial.
While Batman had the idea to keep Lobo hidden on the remains of Apokolips, several enemies discovered their location the same, such as the Cyborg Superman taken over by Brainiac who arrived along with several other cosmic opponents in search of abundance on the chief’s head. In response, Superman tells Flash to set up ‘Maneuver 39’, a coordinated and pre-planned combination of their forces, with which the Man of Steel can land hard on the surface to kick up a mass of rock and dirt, so that the Flash his speed to send it all to their new enemies as a cruel wave projectile. Given the numbering, the combination seems to be one of many that they have developed as a playbook of dynamic power supply.
If you coordinated these combination attacks, it’s a great way to show the league’s tenure as allies, proving that they were a team that was long enough to know each other’s strengths and that with their own to compliment. While this is certainly something that could better develop the Avengers in the Marvel universe, the X-Men have developed very strong synergies, even beyond the classic power combination of Colossus and Wolverine, known as “The Fastball Special”, which Logan uses on enemies launched as an indestructible missile of sharp adamantium and Canadian fury.
Anyway, watching Superman and Flash use a trained power combo is a lot of fun, and the problem makes it clear that this is one of nearly forty different synergistic plays they’ve developed (if not more). While the maneuver does not diminish all of their enemies in the issue, it does not stop Man of Steel and Fastest Man Alive from continuing to fight, and as such it would be great to see if they would use their playbook again, with a new combination attack in future editions of Justice League: Last Ride.
