DARKSEID VS. THE ANTI-MONITOR!
The Justice League first came together years ago to stop the Darkseid and his parademon army from invading our Earth. Now Darkseid will once again make the planet a warzone, as Earth becomes the frontline in his battle with the Anti-Monitor, one of the most powerfully destructive creatures ever created.
Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman and the rest of the Justice League are working with Mister Miracle to stop the coming bloodshed, but when two unstoppable forces of evil go to war, even the world’s greatest heroes might not be enough to save the world!
"Darkseid War" is the rematch of the century between the Justice League and Darkseid’s Apocalyptic forces. The Justice League initially formed in response to Darkseid’s initial invasion of Earth and defeated him by tossing him through a Boom Tube activated by Cyborg’s powers. This fight will probably be even more savage than last time, which left Green Lantern with a broken arm and Superman severely beaten. And don’t forget that Cyborg also has a personal stake in this fight since it was Darkseid’s invasion that destroyed his body and led to him becoming half machine.
The Justice League’s current roster consists of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Shazam, the Flash, Aquaman and Lex Luthor. Yup, you read that correctly, Lex Luthor has been a member of the Justice League ever since he helped stop the Crime Syndicate of America’s takeover of the world during Forever Evil. Lex joined the Justice League after learning about a potential bigger threat heading to Earth and his genius and intellect might just be the trump card the Justice League needs to beat Darkseid.
The Justice League’s other secret weapon is Jessica Cruz. Cruz came into possession of the Ring of Volthoom, an alternate universe version of Green Lantern’s power ring…only more evil and nasty. Cruz has struggled to control the Ring of Volthoom so far, but the Flash has asked Green Lantern to return to Earth and teach her.
The Anti-Monitor is Coming
The multiverse-destroying Anti-Monitor made his first New 52 appearance last year, laying waste to Earth 3, the former home of the Crime Syndicate. The Anti-Monitor wants to kill Darkseid to make up for some mysterious past transgression and he knows about the Justice League’s Earth because of Jessica Cruz’s power ring (which originally came from Earth 3). If comics have taught us one thing, it’s that the Anti-Monitor brings red skies and lots of death with him…along with lots of people using the word ‘crisis’ over and over.
If the Anti-Monitor isn’t bad enough, he also has a surprising ally in his war against Darkseid…
