DC Universe Rebirth #1 set about restoring a pre-Flashpoint Justice Society for the main DC Universe Earth.

…in senior’s care dismissed as crazy.

It appears this will be a multi-generational affair, like it was before, with a new young generation to become the new Justice Society or JSA or All-Star Squadron or Infinity Inc.

It became confusing then how a multiversity set ongoing series in Earth 2 Society could co-exist with the coming Justice Society tied to DC Rebirth.

Well that story began to be answered in September 2016’s Earth 2 Society #16 and continued in the recent Earth 2 Society #18.

The Justice Society is battling the Ultra-Humanite over control to rewrite reality.

The team rushes the Ultra-Humanite while Fury…

…gets to the Pandora’s Casket (not Pandora’s Box) first setting off…

earth-2-society-16-dc-comics-rebirth-spoilers-jsa-3

…a chain of events that destroys Earth 2 by…

…erasing it?

earth-2-society-16-dc-comics-rebirth-spoilers-jsa-5

So…

Pretty intrigued by where this all goes ad there was a lot of action and drama in this issue. I wasn’t sold on the art for this issue, but overall an entertaining issue. 6 out of 10.

Earth 2: Society #17 Spoilers & Review with Justice Society & DC Rebirth Implications follow!

The team is now in limbo as reality is rewritten on Earth 2. That means that while everything on Earth 2 will be different these heroes and heroines survive the old reality.

earth-2-society-17-dc-comics-rebirth-spoilers-jsa-1

There is tension among the team as…

earth-2-society-17-dc-comics-rebirth-spoilers-jsa-2

…Sandmen (as in plural Sandman) confront the team. Who are these creatures?

earth-2-society-17-dc-comics-rebirth-spoilers-jsa-3

So…

More movement towards a new Earth 2. I’m a sucker for Sandman so Sandmen that have some kind of mystical role is compelling for me. Plus the art this issue was more solid. Despite the light action, I give this one 7 out 10.

First the teaser / preview pages from this issue were quite illuminating as the Sandmen take on some of those members of Earth 2’s surviving Justice Society, namely Batman (Dick Grayson), Huntress (Helena Wayne, the deceased Bruce Wayne’s daughter) and Dick Grayson’s son.
