REVIEW: Besides the better than average superhero action, what they give us in this issue is an Amazo with a soul. More than an unstoppable murderbot with all the powers of the JLA, Amazo 2000 has feelings. Child-like or even pet-like they may be, but he gets special satisfaction at making Professor Ivo proud, and ultimately, turns on him when he feels jealous of numbers 1 through 1999 and betrayed by his callous master. The Martian Manhunter's line at the end, where he replaces going "haywire" with going "human", is a good one and makes you feel for the android.
I also like Ivo's contention that Batman must have a power he didn't account for, because this being based on Morrison's JLA, the Dark Knight's cleverness is of course on par with any world-class power the League might use, and Ivo didn't account for it. If it's a power, it's one that can't be copied or drained, sorry. I was afraid Batman being ignored by Amazo was precursor to his saving the day while the JLA lay at Amazo's feat, already a cliché at this point. Thankfully, the Bat's plan includes other Leaguers, and it's a team effort that takes the android down.
REREADABILITY: Medium-High - Good action and a story with an emotional core.
