You made it! After 4 weeks and 4 points, you’ve got formally run the NO JUSTICE gauntlet proper together with, like, greater than half of the DC Universe, and now issues are by no means going to be the similar.
But earlier than we begin looking at the precise fallout from this occasion (there’s so much), we should always in all probability speak about what truly occurred as a result of it is type of a doozy—however, I imply, what else did you actually anticipate? If you’ve got been following together with the final three points, complete mayhem in all probability does not come as a shock to you in any respect. And if you have not? Go again and catch up! Trust me once I say this is not a ebook the place you need to simply bounce into the ultimate concern and hope for the greatest.
Brainiac’s homeworld of Colu is not any extra, the cosmic timber have sprouted on Earth, Amanda Waller is prepared for the nuclear choice, and Vril Dox has determined that our heroes are getting what they deserve. Sure, that’s partly as a result of he is an enormous jerk, however he additionally did simply watch his whole planet get decreased to area particles, so I can at the least see the place he is coming from on this one. If I used to be a resident of Colu, I would not precisely be impressed with the Justice League both.
Thankfully, Ollie has pals in excessive locations, and Hal and the Green Lantern Corps have been capable of swoop in and intervene with Vril’s plans to ensure that Earth adopted in Colu’s footsteps with the League scorching on their heels. And that’s the place issues begin to get actually loopy. To truly cease the Omega Titans from pulling a Colu half two, the League and the GLC needed to primarily trick the Titans into believing that one in every of their very own was their meal quite than the planet itself. They launched the “fruit” from every cosmic tree proper into the Entropy Titan and watched nature take its horrible, horrible course.
“Nature” on this case which means a horrifyingly unnatural act of cosmic cannibalism which will or is probably not breaking the guidelines and the construction of the universe itself another time.
In different phrases, that is undoubtedly a type of “but at what cost?” conditions. The League managed to stop the Earth from being consumed, however in doing so, might have paved the means for much more issues in the future—ones which may not be really easy to unravel. After all, breaking the guidelines is an answer that’s sure to have some diminishing returns.
But for now, in the wake of the remaining Omega Titans’ retreat, we’re left with a completely new panorama to fret about. First, as Vril Dox has named it, we have got the “Ghost Space Sector”—the chunk of galaxy through which all the bottled-up planets let loose from Colu are going to be making their houses. The drawback with this, as Vril identified, is that dumping a bunch of previously remoted worlds into the similar galactic neighborhood and anticipating them to all get alongside is a little bit of a stretch. This new sector of area goes to wish some actual work, or it may crumble right into a conflict zone virtually instantly.
Next, we have got Batman placing collectively a staff of his personal with Jefferson Pierce, aka Black Lightning, at the helm. They’re going to be a group that may hold the League coated from “the outside,” which, for those who ask me, sounds suspiciously like the mission assertion of the Outsiders, a group we’ve not seen round in fairly a while. Black Lightning and his new staff are going to be coalescing in DETECTIVE COMICS, so our greatest guess is to control them and see simply how issues are going to shake out. Historically, the Outsiders have teetered on the line of ethical ambiguity every time they’re lively (one thing that simply so occurs to be Batman’s specialty), so this new incarnation may imply some rigidity constructing between pals and teammates down the line.
Then there’s the matter of the new Justice League, underneath new chairman J’onn J’onzz and…no matter is occurring with Lex Luthor. We already know that the Legion of Doom underneath Luthor’s management is one thing that’s coming, however the intricacies of simply how this rivalry goes to play out stay a thriller. We know that Luthor has very a lot tapped into the cosmic pressure of entropy (his connection to it was stronger than even Deathstroke’s, which is saying one thing), however we do not know what he plans to do with it simply but.
Needless to say, Lex Luthor is a harmful man regardless, however he is an particularly harmful man when he is on a mission.
In brief, I don’t envy this new Justice League. They’re going to have their work reduce out for them.
