“The Darkseid War” is a tale five years in the making, starting with the initial issues of the New 52 Justice League. For it to be completed in this manner is a testament to the dysfunction that is DC Comics under the N52 direction. This story began with a healthy amount of promise when it began, as looked to tie up many of the threads that led into the story. However, due to circumstances beyond its control, “The Darkseid War” became a decompressed, padded prop that supported nothing, and was aced to the side for Rebirth. A reader who diligently follow this storyline would be hard pressed not to see the jump from a concluding tale, to a stepping stone for what events will transpire in the next pseudo-reboot for DC Comics. “The Darkseid War” turned from a healthy finish to Johns solid, if unimaginative run on Justice League, to an over stretched, over stuffed interlude, that serves no purpose other than to get the title to #50.
