It’s the end of the world — and not even the world’s greatest super-team can stop it.
But can the most sinister villains?
As nuclear bombs rain down upon every major city on earth, Superman soars to save all he can, as do The Flash, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Martian Manhunter and Aquaman. None can stop the horror from unfolding as eventually the whole world tears itself apart and … they all wake up?
Justice #1 kicks off a two-year odyssey (the book ships bimonthly) that pits the classic members of the JLA against an assemblage of their arch-nemeses — Black Manta, Cheetah, Captain Cold, The Riddler and Lex Luthor to name a handful — with the fate of the world hanging in the balance.
Comic painter extraordinaire Alex Ross chips in on the story, along with Jim Krueger, and on the art, with Doug Braithwaite to create a debut issue that is both engrossing and spectacular to see.
It’s going to be a long two years of watching this beauty unfold.
