The Top 10 Amazo Covers

Professor Anthony Ivo is one of the greatest threats the JLA have ever faced, and the single most deadly foe of the Detroit era. Ivo has plagued the League since before they received a series, and his involvement in the deaths of Vibe and Steel brought their book to a close. However, Ivo is rather cover shy, understandable given his disfiguring condition. His android Amazo, possessed of the powers of the League's founders and a Detroit enemy in his own right, seems much more photogenic.

Dishonorable Mention:
Justice League Quarterly #12 (Autumn, 1993)

Great choices!!! I'm so glad the JLD rated! My favorites of this group are:
Justice League of America #241
JLA #27
Action Comics #481

That JLQ cover is so terrible. Even back then we all knew that redesign for Amazo was bad news.

Also, I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed that "Kid Amazo" storyline. I wasn't expecting much, but really enjoyed it.

Keep up the great work! JLD 4-EVAR!

I'm all for updating Amazo, but at the end of the day the name is still "Amazo," so skulls and metal ribbons need not apply. That Lightle cover turned out nice, though.
