Ignore the naysayers, this was an excellent book! It has the tone of a Saturday morning cartoon and I had a blast reading this. There are solid characters, action and adventure, and some great humor. I would love to see this property adapted into a DC animated film.

Honestly, what's the point of this, aside from a hope to make inroads in China? DC has plenty of characters to draw on, but seem to persist on releasing more titles with links (or homages) to their big three, and this just doesn't work. A rather obnoxious, self absorbed Chinese teenager is gifted with Kryptonian powers (that China just happens to possess) and teamed with a Chinese version of Wonder Woman and Batman as a Justice League of China. You would think that the real Justice League of the DC universe might find this rather irritating. All in all, it's pointless.
