Review of chapter "Chapter 22" from slayerstorm
Just finished reading ''The Child of Rao'' series, from the beginning of the series up to Ch. 22 of Book II. It's too bad it hasn't been concluded. Maybe one day.

Review of chapter "Chapter 22" from TheRichmaster
This a new take on a DCAU crossover, it's good. Other comments:

1. I hope to see more about the Olympian's chosen
1.1. Static (being one of my favorite DC heroes) most of all. Will he be able to throw spears of lightning (or 'thunderbolts')? (also given that Gear's technopathic abilities could be considered electrical was he included)
1.2. Does Steel have any powers over fire now? (also what happened on his date with Vixen?)
1.3. Did Hermes make Flash his Champion or not?
1.4 Will Green Arrow's personality be changed? (given the whole goddess of maidens thing and he has always been more of a protect the little people person)
1.5. Will Apollo have a Champion?
1.6. One thing I know I want to see is the Champions of the twelve 'main' Olympians all get together in one place, maybe involve Wonder Woman somehow?

2. Now that their relationship status is out in the open it will be interesting to see people's reactions
2.1. Especially if people start coming up to him for advice

3. Will Nighthawk get caught on camera anytime soon?
3.2. If he does I think it would be good if he started talking about why he does what he does
3.3. Also the 'love square' gets brought up somehow and he could make some comment on how lucky that guy must be

4.Will their be a proper reference in the story to the title 'Child of Rao' maybe have one of his personas talk about religion and Rao while a news-person is nearby?

Review of chapter "Chapter 22" from Grovtech
Since it's been two years I guess the odds of us seeing more of this is slim. Still I would read it in a heartbeat. I liked how you how highlighted some of the JLA's more 'White Hat' stances such about profiting from one's powers or no killing no matter what.

Somebody needed to cap the Joker a long time ago because he's simply a menace as long as he's alive. Demonic invasion are the same thing. Ten people died and more would've followed. Some of this is information such as about Cadmus not being shared.

Still I can't blame Rao. He's after protecting the very last of his people. I would not be surprised to find that anyone who been 'touched' by his magics are fertile with Kyptonians.

All in all a very fun read!

Review of chapter "Chapter 22" from Jimbobob
This has been a very fun story, and I'm a little sad to see that it probably won't be updated again.

Review of chapter "Chapter 22" from agnar
Hoping you'll come back to this some day. Was just re-reading this and felt like reviewing on a couple things that bugged me. Not about your writing, which is great. But about the attitude of the JL which you pretty accurately portray.

In ch. 5 it bugged me no end that J'onn thought the JL had any right to tell anyone how to use their powers so long as they don't break the law. Artists use their talents to make money, athletes the same, etc. *Everyone* is allowed, even encouraged to use their talents to make a living.

But Xander's amish character is somehow wrong to use his speed power to work as a messenger? Bullshit. Or his strength to work construction? Again bullshit. That hypocrisy pisses me off, though it is an accurate portrayal of their attitude.

The other thing was the JL's bullshit attitude after the crab demon incident. Yeah I get Cadmus was stirring shit up to hurt the League's reputation. But it felt like the League was agreeing that Xander's crew was in the wrong, that they did something wrong, by cowtowing to the public and telling them to lay low afterwards.

They should have had Xander and crews back, put on a fucking press conference and back them to the hilt that they did the RIGHT thing, they did nothing wrong and they saved human lives. Not this pussy footing around, half-assed bullshit they did pull.

Honestly I kinda felt like Xander and his ladies would've been better off on their own, without the League. While the League means well and can handle the alien/worldwide stuff, they seem to be condescending and arrogant, and lose sight of the regular stuff. And I'm not sure I see Xander and his ladies really wanting to be ordered about by anyone like they get after dealing with Cadmus and the Watchers council.

Review of chapter "Chapter 22" from Bill
Good! But I'd be the Muslims who'd go most apeshit over the old gods coming back.(One thing you NEVER bring up to a practicing Muslim is polytheism.)
