Adventures of Superman 565 – the Justice League have an intervention with Superman

I like the cover for Adventures of Superman 565 (March 1999), but that’s about the only thing I care for in the Kesel, Ordway, Grummett and Rodier story.  It’s part of the Superman – King of the World story arc, which I find long and tedious and without interest.

Luthor’s people are concerned about how active Superman has become, racing around the world non-stop, solving everything. But Luthor is not displeased, figuring on how he can exploit this.

Flash villains Captain Cold and Captain Boomerang make the bad mistake of pulling a robbery in Metropolis.  Outburst joins Superman in taking the bad guys down.

Justice League of America members Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter show up to express to Superman their concern about his behaviour.  He brushes them off, insisting that he is only helping and doing what the Justice League is there to do.  There is no big conflict between Superman and the League in this issue, but it sets it up for later.
