X-MEN/WILDC.A.T.S: A look back at crossovers.
James Robinson is usually admired for his work on STARMAN. I appreciated his attempt to improve Rob Liefeld's CAPTAIN AMERICA series. But JUSTICE LEAGUE: CRY FOR JUSTICE has resulted in him falling out of favor. Here's one of his 90s works, with art by Adam Hughes.

Mr. Miracle's funeral, Justice League America #40
I had a request in an earlier JLI post I did for a page of Superman and Batman talking after Mr. Miracle's funeral. Naturally, I can't just do the one page, because the whole funeral is so awesome. Six pages of a 22-page comic, plus preview (plus a few non-comic images), not my scans.

So yeah, starts out with big fight with Despero, which J'onn ends...

BTW, this seems as good a post as any to throw this out there. It didn't strike me back in the 80s because I hadn't seen the movie, but now that I've got both the first JLI trade and the Omen series box set, I'm wondering if deMatteis modeled his Max Lord on Sam Neill as the adult Damien Thorn? Check it out:

What say you, s_d? Do we have a match?

When fanservice is essential to the plot who you gonna call? ADAM HUGHES!
I originally planned on posting this as a quick scan of Triplicate Girl's swimsuit, as I love the notion of a costume that splits into three different outfits to match the personalities. However when I dug the issue out, I realised that this was a golden opportunity to showcase how to best utilise your artist... You get Adam Hughes on art, then give him a story where the entire cast of sculpted young Adonises and curvaceous Aphrodites ARE IN SWIMSUITS... and it's not gratuitous, it's a PLOT POINT!
