First, there ‘s Jokerzard ‘s colossus tree of dead bodies. While that seems wholly in character for the Clown Prince of Crime, he has never gone quite that far in the mainstream DC Universe. interestingly, this display is n’t played up for the built-in horror of it all, as the focus is placed entirely on the struggle that takes locate between the two enemies .
During Bat Walker and Jokerzard ‘s fight, Joker ‘s key signature acid-spitting flower was replaced by literal acid spit. It fits these dinosaur characters absolutely, and is far more hard-core than anything seen in the mainstream titles. The extraordinary violence continues as Jokerzard bites into his dino bane and even impales him with his claw after taking a Batarang to the eye. A numeral of the things going on between these two characters mimic many classic stories but, when shoved into equitable a few pages, it delivers an intense and overpower know. Most importantly of all, it never come across as atrocious, but preferably as pure fun and agitation .
fortunately, this is n’t merely contained to the dinosaur versions of Batman and Joker. In the first confrontation between this universe ‘s Aquaman and Black Manta, the dino defender of the sea threw away his trident to fight his enemy with his bare hands. Arthur Curry would n’t do that in his own amusing without being badly provoked ; however, his dinosaur counterpart has no qualms about giving in to rage and taking the fight up close and personal, producing an epic poem battle between beasts that is amazing to behold .

The passive base of the Amazons – which in this world is called Trimiscyra – is the least intense of all the places seen in this issue. There is no natural process there nor are there villains to fight, just Wonderdon figuring out her role in this Jurassic world of heroes. however, the Amazon armory of Trimiscyra features the armor of Ares – still on his chained-up skeleton. It ‘s an evocative trope even in such a calm moment and keeps up the acute tone of the book.
For the lovers of beastly, hardcore military action, this alternate universe book is perfect and far beyond about all of DC ‘s regular offerings. Given how the publisher has embraced the theme of the infinite omniverse recently, The Jurassic League could be the first of many wildly different interpretations of these iconic characters going advancing. It ‘s the perfect stepping stone, and the in-your-face action of this book is the perfect way to get readers out of the comfort zone of the regular DCU .
