One thousand years in the future, a Legion of Super-Heroes comes together to dedicate their lives to recapturing the great age of heroes of the 21st century. When the heroes discover that reality is falling to a great darkness in both times simultaneously, the Justice League and the Legion of Super-Heroes must team up to stop it all. But what is the connection between the secrets of the new Gold Lanterns and the coming of the Great Darkness? A monumental DC epic event miniseries!
So, a Gold Lantern saga opens with a page explaining what we know about Kala Lour aka the Gold Lantern in the 31st Century.
What follows are two pages explaining for readers what the Legion of Super-Heroes (here and here), but then the action begins with a moment of darkness that impacts Triplicate Girl in a dramatic way.
Then we get a look at the Great Darkness to come which allows the Legion of Super-Heroes to get the support and backing of the United Planets to deal with this coming threat.
In modern day 21st Century, the Justice League sees the return of Wonder Woman to its burgeoning ranks as they also experience their own Darkness episode.
That leads to an aged Triplicate Girl, one of the three parts of here, ending up somehow in the 21st Century.
The Justice League then gets Jon Kent its Superman, who as Superboy was a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes, to seek them out for a modern day adventure to solve this dark mystery.
There’s the meet and greet page with dense dialogue which…
…then has both teams experience a much larger darkness episode seemingly focusing on Wonder Woman?!
That leaves only the Gold Lantern left standing?!
It should be noted that the Great Darkness Saga language was long LOSH roots as a classic Darkseid centric event, but…
…it’s not clear if in addition to his Infinite Frontier and Justice League Incarnate presence if he’ll have a presence here.
An intriguing start that had a lot to do story-wise to get all readers caught up on who and what both these teams including newer characters such as the Gold Lantern. The real action is at the end including that cliffhanger. The art is the strength of the issue for sure. I am intrigued enough to come back for the next issue. 7 out of 10.
