Amazo, an android that mimics the Justice League's powers, has a half-robot, half-human son.

If he can't learn to love Batman, what hope do any of us have at fighting our upbringing or destiny.

The main plot follows Kid Amazo as he fights between his programming and his free-will as a ...more

This one tried to do something more with the famous heroes, focusing on a new super villain who could turn good or bad. Superficial but entertaining play with Nietzschean philosophy. Good development of the character.
