DC Comics Universe and Justice League #18 Spoilers follows.
More Revealed From The Secret History Of The DC Universe In Legion Of Doom Centric Issue!
This is in addition to the modern day Legion of Doom developments from the issue (full spoilers here).
The story is told by Lex Luthor to Brainiac in modern day. It starts with Vandal Savage finding a space rock which turns out to be a piece of the Totality.
This rock is not the one that made him immortal; that happened earlier. That’s a weakness in the story; effectively the same circumstance happening to Vandal Savage twice despite slight differences between the two moments.
Through the ages Vandal Savage meets with various historical DC Comics figures including Arion, the Ultra-Humanite and others to understand the rock as it has also had its edges softened into a gem.
Then Vandal Savage approached…
Lex Luthor’s father…
They worked together until they didn’t! Lionel became…
…a beaten prisoner to Vandal Savage…
…and his life was never the same.
Now we know, in part, why Lex Luthor killed Vandal Savage at the beginning of this new Justice League run.
