DC Comics Universe and Justice League #25 Spoilers and Review follows.
Apex Lex Luthor Revealed!
DC’s Year Of The Villain Begins! Justice Doom War Looms!
World Forger’s Sixth Dimension Destroyed?
The first story in this over-sized anniversary issue features the end of the Sixth Dimension arc…
…with Batman turning on the World Forger, Superman returning, and the World Forger becoming an ally. The justice League believes his right about the multiverse being threatened, but have a different idea on how to save it.
We then move to the second story.
While the Justice League was away dealing with the Sixth Dimension threat, Lex Luthor and the Legion of Doom defeated Mr. Mxyzptlk.
He then told the world about the Justice League destroying the Source Wall and dooming the multiverse.
He asks them to reject to Justice League and let their emotion guide them; only then can then find a way out this. There will be sacrifice, but we knows they can do it.
The sacrifice was Lex Luthor seemingly being offed in DC’s Year of the Villain #1 (full spoilers here). He used the intel he ripped from Amanda Waller to learn where all the truly powerful villains are in the world.
The world has turned on the Justice League…
…and while Starman offers to recruit super-heroes from across the multiverse to help them, Wonder Woman wants to recruit super-hero from their Earth to make this the biggest Justice League ever to combat the threat on Earth and of the dying multiverse.
The book ends with a reborn Lex Luthor, a now human-Martian hybrid at the hands of Perpetua, having Brainiac sends drones into the world for some purpose. Year of the Villain begins as does, perhaps, the Justice Doom War.
Next up is Justice League #26…
…out on June 19, 2019.
An extra-sized issue with two stories. The first one ends the Sixth Dimension arc and sees the World Forger defeated and turned into an ally. The plot was non-sensical, but the character moments were touching and the art was great. 6 out 10. The second story kicks off where DC Year’s Of the Villain #1 kicked off. Great plot and character moments with serviceable art. This story felt epic. 8 out of 10. So, together that makes this book extra-sized issue a 7 out of 10.
