While there’s been plenty to like about the Justice League‘s ongoing “Forever Evil” arc, my favorite development is, without a doubt, the return of the Metal Men, a beloved albeit sometimes-goofy relic of the 1960s.

And, after you read this exclusive preview of DC Comics’ Justice League #29, by Geoff Johns, Ivan Reis and Joe Prado, we think you’ll be hard-pressed to disagree. Unless, of course, you’re a malevolent artificial intelligence bent on world domination…
