DC Comics Universe and Dark Nights: Death Metal #3 Spoilers and Review follows.

Wally West Flash and Justice Society Of America (JSA) Jay Garrick Flash Vs. Robin King! Lobo, Legion Of Doom and Justice League!

There are even more variant covers on top of the above.

Plus the main cover.

The book opens with some taking on and taking out dark multiverse versions of classic DC villains who are all Batman derivatives now…

…as Batman, Wonder Woman (with Swamp Thing) and Harley Quinn race somewhere with Parademon Robins everywhere.

Looks like they are racing to Superman…

…trapped by the dark multiverse’s Darkseid Batman.

This Darkfather aims for Superman with his anti-life gun…

…gets Batman survives…

…as the World’s Finest are fueled by the Black Lantern rings and its power of the dead?!

Elsewhere, Lobo is shooting up Mister Mxyzptlk’s 5th Dimension searching for something.

The Robin King finds the JSA and Wally West the Flash…

…reveals his macabre utility belt just as…

…the Batman Who Laughs’ new persona of the Darkest Knights comes for Wally West’s Doctor Manhattan powers.

In fact, he’s poised to outrun all three Flashes unless the band their powers together!

Elsewhere, DC’s trinity, with Harley Quinn and Swamp Thing, find all of the unaffected super-heroes imprisoned by the Darkfather.

Wonder Woman has an audacious plan to…

…use Wally West to restart the universe and use Jarro (a baby Starro) to shield their plan from the Darkest Knight et al.

The book ends with Lobo having collected the fifth of something from the Fifth Dimension for…

…a scarred Lex Luthor; seemingly the fellow from the opening of the book that destroyed all the Batmen villains.

The Pulse:

Another high-octane issue that requires a few reads due to the technobabble and dense word balloons. Still lots of cool moments and dark multiverse cameos in the issue. Art is great, but inconsistent at times. Still a generally entertaining and fun read. 7 out of 10.
