The episode ends with Hourman placing the amulet on a display in the JSA headquarters then we see the reverse flash come along , killing Tyler and he zooms off taking the amulet, leaving Vixen rushing into the room and crying.
My favorite part of the episode was by far meeting the Justice Society of America, the team was so great to see in Action, fighting the legends and fighting with the legends.The characters that stood out for me the most are Stargirl,Commander Steel but most of all Vixen, Obsidian was also really cool to see in terms of his powers.Dr. Mid-nite didn't get much time to shine but he did seem pretty cool.Hourman seemed like he would be a pivotal part in the season but that didn't go to plan, and if I'm not mistaken, we didn't see him use his power at all.
My favorite character of the episode is a tuff decision to make, all the characters shined out for me this episode, it was cool seeing Sarah do the opening monologue, Jackson was cool to see trying to impress Stargirl but if I have to choose, it has to be Martin, Matin steeping up as team leader was great to see and him pretending to be Max Lorenz was so great.Victor Garber does a great job with the character.
Ray and Vixen also were characters I enjoyed together, it seems like the hey will have a relationship throughout the season, like what Ray and Hawkgirl had.It is cool, to see their powers collide of a magic animal totem and futuristic tech.
Overall the Justice Society of America was an amazing episode with the epic introduction of the JSA themselves so I will give it a 9 out of 10.Feel free to leave your thoughts on the episode down in the comments below.As always thanks for reading, take care.
