THOUGHT ROBOT IS SECOND TO MONITOR-MIND THE OVERVOID

Thought Robot (Cosmic Armor Superman). DC Comics.

Before the Thought Robot vs Mandrakk battle, Superman and company were stranded in Limbo. Indeed, it was the Final Crisis, and Monitrix Zillo Valla had recruited the super-champions of the multiverse.

To this end, their quest was to recover the Ultramenstruum, the substance of life. But, they had to stop Mandrakk first, the Dark Monitor who held the Ultramenstruum or Bleed.

Near Cosmic Midnight, Mandrakk’s forces closed in on Superman and company. While struggling to hold with their inoperative ship, Captain Adam unlocked his power.

With quantum superposition, Adam was able to fuse together two dualities: Superman and Ultraman. With their selves fused onto a higher plane of existence, the new being ascended to Nil or Heaven.

There, they became Thought Robot. At Cosmic Midnight, Cosmic Armor Superman faced the enemy of the DC multiverse: Mandrakk.

According to the legend of the Monitors, Thought Robot is a 4-D Doomsday Weapon whose sole purpose is to defeat the Ultimate Enemy. In effect, Thought Robot is moved by the story of Superman and can become as strong as needed in response to his enemy’s attack.

Consequently, Cosmic Armor Superman has the power of Reactive Evolution. As a Doomsday Weapon, Thought Robot is the being “of divine metals” that Monitor-Mind The Overvoid formed in order to protect the DC multiverse.1

Really, the character is second only to Monitor-Mind The Overvoid in importance and power.

OVERPOWERED, THOUGHT ROBOT CAN BREAK THE FOURTH WALL

In 'Final Crisis: Superman Beyond' (2009) #2, Thought Robot breaks the Fourth Wall.
In Final Crisis: Superman Beyond (2009) #2, Thought Robot breaks the Fourth Wall. DC Comics.

Originally, what struck fans was that Thought Robot was the most powerful version of Superman in DC continuity. As matter of fact, Thought Robot is among the few characters in comics that can Break The Fourth Wall.

In literature, drama or theater, this is a meta-fictional technique by which a given character is aware of the audience, the reader or the writer. Moreover, the character is usually depicted addressing the audience, reader or writer.

Related to this case, Thought Robot either addresses the Presence, or is aware of being a character in a comic. In the image above, Cosmic Armor Superman seems to be addressing the Writer, that is, Grant Morrison.

Moreover, this super power can be attributed in part to Clark Kent’s profession of journalism, which is to tell stories. In this case, the journalist becomes the story. Really, this is a very powerful super power, perhaps the greatest.

In this comparison, Thought Robot may be more powerful than Truth Incarnate Wonder Woman.

Moreover, Thought Robot is overpowered and possesses super powers at the level of the Hyperverse. In effect, he is a God or Abstract.

Some of Cosmic Armor Superman’s powers include: 4th wall breakage, plot manipulation, time manipulation, reactive evolution, berserker strength, flight, heat vision, reality warping, quantum manipulation.

PHILOSOPHICALLY, #THOUGHTROBOTISNECESSARY

Thought Robot (Cosmic Armor Superman). DC Comics.

Philosophically, #ThoughtRobotIsNecessary to the DC multiverse. In the mythology created by Grant Morrison, the Writer created the DC multiverse as a story. In that story, the Monitor-Mind the Overvoid is an outerversal being who represents DC comics itself.

However, because of his perfection, the Overvoid could not comprehend the significance of the concept “story.”1 Like a Deus Ex Machina, Thought Robot was built to protect the DC multiverse from the imperfection of story.

In my digital book Superman, The Greatest Story: How Art Deco Meets Plot Device, I argue that Cosmic Armor Superman actually functions as a Monitor. In fact, Morrison perceives the Monitors as angels, whose function it is to tell stories.

Doubly as a journalist and as Thought Robot, Superman functions as a storyteller. And what is the ultimate purpose of the storyteller in society: it is to preserve human civilization.

In a philosophical sense, #ThoughtRobotIsNecessary because stories are the blood of DC Comics and because he makes them intelligible to the Monitors, the Overvoid and a special person dear to Superman.

Perhaps, Thought Robot’s most impressive power. Here, a comic character becomes God, or perhaps, reveals metafiction.

Here, the commentary is that Superman and the DC multiverse are organic, living entities.

As a metafictional character, Cosmic Armor Superman can interface with the Writer. Here, on the page, his hand extends outside of it.

Literally, a comic character touches the Presence, the reader or the Writer. Below, you can find our Power Level Wiki for the feat and others.

THOUGHT ROBOT MANIPULATES THE STORY

At the end of the battle, Thought Robot writes an inscription on his tomb. In Nil, it is a fitting celebration of 81 years of history.

Indeed, Grant Morrison seems to say that stories are enduring.

In fact, Thought Robot seemed to predict the state of the DC Universe after Dark Nights: Death Metal.

Really, read the end of the issue to find out Thought Robot’s “warning” to Mandrakk.2

HIS HEAT VISION CAST MANDRAKK INTO THE OVERVOID

At the end of the battle, Superman demonstrated that his energy projection is Nigh-Omnipotent. After Mandrakk kills Zillo Valla, the battle kicks into high gear.

With Superman on the ropes, bleeding, panting, Mandrakk presses on. Then, the voice of Ultraman helps him re-double his strength.

With multiple attacks, Thought Robot disarms Mandrakk. Finally, in a powerful blast of heat vision, Superman casts Mandrakk into the Overvoid.

Perhaps, one of the best finishing moves in comic battles. In fact, proving that Cosmic Armor Superman is beyond the DC multiverse!

Critically, ’52’ #45 is one of the most disastrous events in comic book history. Thematically, the comic deals with the pain of loss and grief which it heightens to incalculable destruction. Namely, genocide.

To sum, the story is about Black Adam driven to madness by the death of his wife Isis. In order to avenge her against the Third Horseman, he commits atrocities in Bialya.

Critically, ’52’ #45 is the event that skyrocketed Black Adam into an A-list supervillain in the DC Universe. Normally, a man with a violent temper. Out of love for his wife Iris, Black Adam reformed. When Isis was killed by the Third Horseman, Black Adam went on a rampage in Bialya: He killed every man, woman and child in the country, causing a genocide. In the midst of the genocide, holding a flower in his hand, Black Adam cried.

The comic is excellent for your collection. You will definitely love the intimate moments and the picturesque fall from grace. This is the graphic novel to own in order to build your Comixology collection.

“JLA: Tower Of Babel” is a classic JLA story. Really, it showcased at the time, why the Justice League was DC’s premiere superhero team. True, Superman may function as the first among equals. Though, Batman is revealed to be the most dangerous man on DC Earth.

Certainly, it is a case of Bat-god Syndrome. The main plot of the story is the following: Eco-terrorist Ra’s Al Ghul has hacked Batman’s contingency plans. In his paranoia, the Dark Knight had developed over the years contingency plans. In effect, they were intended to neutralize each member of the Justice League, should they ever go rogue. Of course, when the plans are enacted, disaster ensues.

Mark Waid and Howard Porter collaborate on this timeless story. Without a doubt, what makes it work is the larger-than-life feel of the pencils. Porter’s lines are crisp, athletic and the coloring brings movement to life. The consequences of the story arc lead directly into “JLA: Divided We Fall.”

Overall, this is the best Post-Crisis JLA story. Moreover, Batman fans will geek-out at Bat-god in the loose adaptation Justice League: Doom available on Blu-ray.

In 2004, Brad Meltzer and Rags Morales crafted “Identity Crisis.” To date, no JLA story has been more controversial. In his “Guide,” Sam Stone at CBR.com argues the crossover event drove deep wounds within the superhero community. Indeed, its ramifications bled into the darker universe of “The OMAC Project” and Geoff Johns’ “Infinite Crisis.”

Chiefly, “Identity Crisis” is near the top of this list because of its inter-connectedness and the insurmountable danger it poses. The JLA is expert at handling crises, alien invasions, wars and natural disasters. However, moral dilemmas are another matter entirely. Simply put, what happens when the greatest DC Universe heroes are put before a secret involving questionable moral choices and tragedy?

While Rags Morales’ art shows the urgency of the situation, Brad Meltzer goes through the thought processes of its heroes in the narration. Then, what we are facing is a murder mystery that promises to rip through the relationships in the DC Universe. So, who wiped Doctor Light’s mind? Also, who wiped Batman’s mind? Finally, who is at fault? If these questions spring more dramatic events in the future, the story arc ends with a twist.

To sum, this is ethics put to the test of DC’s elite metahumans and gods. Precisely, it is why it belongs at the top of the list as one of DC Comics’ most thought-provoking stories. Definitely, this story is an essential JLA story.

BEST: ‘JUSTICE’ (2005-2007).

Collects ‘Justice’ #1-12. *This limited series is not canon to DC Mainstream continuity.


























Rating: 5 out of 5.

Plot: 4.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Characterization: 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

Art: 5.0 out of 5.0 stars.

‘Justice’ offers a flashback on previous Pre-Crisis JLA stories. In his 2009 interview with Newsarama, writer Jim Krueger revealed his inspiration for the 12-issue limited series. Specifically, Krueger intended a Super Friends vs Legion of Doom Silver Age story. And it showed the Silver Age elements resonated with fans. Indeed, ‘Justice’ #1 sold out upon its release.

Simply, the plot is straightforward. Motivated by dreams where the Justice League fails, members of the Legion of Doom assemble. In a few words, their plan is to destroy the JLA in order to better the world. Of course, it turns out their partnership is the result of manipulation by genius evil masterminds.

So, what makes ‘Justice’ work out is its ambition. By pitting against one another good superhero vs evil supervillain teams, Krueger crafts a “superhuman war.”1 More importantly, Alex Ross’s art is the central draw for the price of admission. Without a doubt, his photographic paintings create an experience worthy of the most timeless DC stories.

Definitely, this limited series is certainly a must-have for your JLA collection. In particular, fans of the Silver Age will love the classic feel of good vs evil.

Decisively, “Crisis On Infinite Earths” put an end to the DC multiverse. However, the concept would resurface in continuity with “Zero Hour” and “Hypertime.” Largely because of Grant Morrison, the DC multiverse would surely come back. In a one-shot, “JLA: Earth-2” recounts the first multiversal meeting in Post-Crisis continuity. Per chance, the Justice League of America meets its antimatter counterpart from Earth-2, the Crime Syndicate of America.

Desperately, Lex Luthor, the unexpected hero from Earth-2, has come to the DC Primary Earth. Dangerously, he enlists the JLA to aid in fighting off the Crime Syndicate on Earth-2. Unfortunately, things do not go as planned. Eventually, the counterpart teams return to their respective worlds.

Definitely, one of the more polished JLA stories. In a CBR Exclusive, there is speculation that Earth-2 may originate from the Dark multiverse. Also, do not miss the animated movie Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths (Two-Disc Special Edition).

Over the years, DC Comics published the “Year One” line of titles. In Post-Crisis continuity, they serve as important origin stories to the greatest heroes in the DC Universe. Previously, in “’00s Batman Graphic Novels Ranked From Best To Worst,” we reviewed Batman graphic novels set in the “Batman: Year One” continuity.

To begin, ‘JLA: Year One’ is set ten years ago in the Post-Crisis continuity. In short, it is part origin story and part world-building. In a few words, the Justice League of America first forms in order to stop an Appelaxian alien invasion. Soon, the JLA are a sensation on Earth. Despite their obvious differences, the founding members who are Green Lantern, Flash, Black Canary, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter must learn to work together. However, trouble brews. As they uncover the clues of the secret organization known as Locus, the JLA soon learn there is a spy in their ranks.

Obviously, the JLA are DC’s A-list superhero team. Indeed, Morrison’s JLA immortalized the Big Seven: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter. Here, what makes “Year One” work is the introduction of B and C-list heroes. Definitely, there is chemistry and even romance. In the final issue, is the grand finale with big splash pages of ensemble battles. Though, Brian Augustyn’s art suffers throughout the book due to a lack of distinctiveness.

Nevertheless, Mark Waid’s maxi-series is a fan favorite. Indeed, its blend of adventure, optimism and romance make for a fun experience. Definitely, this is essential JLA.

Gloriously, “JLA: Rock Of Ages” is one of the most celebrated Justice League stories. In fact, the Morrison/Porter three and half year run has been touted the definitive JLA. In Grant Morrison’s JLA run, “Rock Of Ages” is the third story arc.

Storytelling-wise, Morrison’s story arc fits within a wider narrative. In effect, Morrison devised an alternate DC mythology with big sci-fi concepts and scale. This thread, of an impending crisis that threatens the entire DC multiverse, runs through Morrison’s story arcs. Dangerously, we envision a glimpse of that threat when Luthor and the Injustice Gang use the Worlogog to create an alternate future. In that future, Darkseid has imposed the Anti-Life Equation on New Genesis and Earth.

Critically speaking, the story appears bombastic. Yet, as the future would demonstrate, Morrison was erecting a Superman-centric universe. In “DC One Million,” that future comes to pass. Definitely, “JLA: Rock Of Ages” revealed DC’s most ambitious story yet.
