Crisis on Infinite Earths. Infinite Crisis. Final Crisis.
And now…Dark Crisis!
The epic event years in the making is finally here! Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the rest of the Justice League are dead. The remaining heroes are left to protect the world from an onslaught of violent attacks by DC’s greatest villains! Can the legacy heroes step out of the shadows of the classic heroes to form a new Justice League? And will that be enough to stop a darkness greater than anything they’ve ever faced from destroying everything?
Don’t miss out on the first issue of the blockbuster event of the summer!
After several super-heroes said no to Jon Kent Superboy / Superman’s offer to be on a new Justice League, including the Tim Fox / Jace Fox Batman and Yara Flor Wonder Girl / Wonder Woman, we have a new team debut.
That new Justice League includes:
- Superman (Jon Kent)
- Robin (Damian Wayne)
- Supergirl (Kara Zor-El)
- Aquaman (Jackson Hyde)
- Harley Quinn (Harleen Quinzel)
- Dr. Light (Kimiyo Hoshi)
- Killer Frost (Caitlin Snow)
- Booster Gold (Michael Jon Carter)
- Blue Beetle (Ted Kord)
- Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes)
Black Adam, still recovering from the Death of the Justice League in Justice League #75 (full spoilers here) as well as Dark Crisis #0 (full spoilers here) and the events of Justice League: Road to Dark Crisis #1 (full spoilers here) is unamused and thinks the new team is too young, too inexperienced and with the wrong leader.
The book ends with the Great Darkness and Pariah’s plan revealed. They will destroy the multiverse using the deaths of the Justice League via their terrifying Dark Army (full spoilers here)?!
In that image it looks like the Justice League may well still be alive, but being tortured unlike Barry Allen the Flash (full spoilers here).
