The wait is lastly over. With the mud settling over the DC Universe in the wake of DARK NIGHTS: METAL and it is more-than-epic conclusion, it is time to see what occurs subsequent…and the first step in that course of simply so occurs to be referred to as JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE.
Take this as your official warning. If you have not completed out Metal, return and begin there otherwise you’re risking some main spoilers from right here on out. The primary story is simply six points and it isn’t one thing you need to miss out on.
Still with me? Great, let’s rock.
The very first thing you are in all probability questioning as you come into this e-book is “So, uh, what happens to the Source Wall now?” or perhaps even, “What precisely is the Source Wall?”
In the easiest potential phrases, the Source Wall is the “Where the Sidewalk Ends”-style fringe of the DC Universe—or, at the least, it was. The Source represented all types of massively cosmic concepts: The starting and finish of existence, demise to immortal concepts; the spark of life for timeless, infinite concepts; all that stuff that gives some type of construction to the boundless infinity of area and time. By rights, it ought to by no means be tampered with with out genuinely risking the complete destruction of our perceived actuality and the guidelines that govern the complete Multiverse.
So, in fact, that is…just about what the Justice League did, and consequently, that’s precisely what’s occurring. There’s an enormous gap in the Source Wall now, care of our buddies in the Dark Multiverse, and the cosmos is hemorrhaging. You do not want me to inform you that is dangerous information. And in case you thought issues have been already dangerous, Brainiac is right here to make them even worse.
…Or, to assist, I assume. But that is Brainiac we’re speaking about, so you understand he is not going to drop in on Earth with an olive department and singing “Kumbayah.”
And, to not be out completed, we will throw some Amanda Waller into the combine to make issues much more difficult as a result of who else is best to throw a wrench in everybody’s plans than The Wall herself?
The finish outcome, as I am positive you’ve got gathered, is an entire lot of chaos and never a number of solutions. There are large threats from past the Source Wall coming and quick, and the destiny of the whole Multiverse is resting in the palms of a Justice League that has, primarily, simply been put in a blender.
What might probably go fallacious?
Part of Brainiac’s plan involves dividing up his chosen “heroes”—and we’ve got to make use of that time period calmly, as a few third of the chosen are literally villains—into new groups, which signifies that we’re seeing heroes who’ve not often (or by no means) labored collectively be pressured into shut quarters. The 4 groups have names, however they’ve additionally acquired some fairly apparent themes. There’s Team Mystery, which consists completely of aliens; Team Entropy, which pulls from the rougher aspect of DC’s heroes and antiheroes (and in addition Beast Boy, who I am nonetheless making an attempt to determine); Team Wonder, made up of magic customers and different supernatural fighters; and Team Wisdom, which is essentially a workforce of scientists. Of course, simply because the groups share some widespread floor in that regard, doesn’t suggest they’re truly going to make good companions—particularly when the destiny of the universe is at stake.
I really feel like Team Wonder has in all probability obtained the benefit on that entrance. Not solely have they got Wonder Woman main them, all of them appear to be a comparatively level-headed bunch. The similar cannot actually be stated about anybody else—not even Mystery with Superman at the helm. Both Sinestro and Starro look like main wildcards in that group. Heck, Starro can’t even final for greater than 5 pages earlier than taking management of one in every of his workforce members on this first problem. Entropy and Wisdom look like they are going to simply be practice wrecks from the get go. Entropy due to, properly, the complete roster, and Wisdom due to Harley Quinn.
…Nothing towards Harley, in fact, however enjoying nicely with others is not precisely her forte.
One of the most nice surprises of No Justice to date is that the 4 cosmic groups aren’t the solely new teams in the combine. We’ve additionally acquired Amanda Waller again on Earth unleashing one thing she’s calling Task Force XI. If you keep in mind all the approach again to JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD, the first ever crossover occasion of the Rebirth period, that identify may sound just a little acquainted to you.
It’s in all probability not a horrible concept to return and try JL vs. SS as No Justice continues on. Just a thought!
But you’d higher snap to it. JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE #2 hits cabinets on May 16th, so you’ve got solely received every week to start out drawing up your theories and doing all of your again difficulty deep dives.
