As Amazo is still on the quest for his identity. The multiverse is coming apart at the seams. Batman has helped Martian Manhunter find the hope to continue his search. Whether he and the Justice League get to the mirrored room in time to save all that exists is anyone’s guess. One thing is certain… Our favorite heroes will have their work cut for them.
Wonder Woman is on a desolate Earth with a version of Darkseid who had once loved a version of herself. His unleashing of the Anti-Life Equation had killed he, leaving the Lord of Apokolips alone and taunted by a piece of the entity he had freed upon the equation’s use. Diana does not believe Darkseid could really love anyone. She feels like he wants to corrupt her. She realizes the truth when he sacrifices himself to save her from the creature after it impersonated Hades. Wonder Woman mourns this Darkseid for only a few brief moments. A pair of Supermen have arrived with the Justice Alliance to rescue her. With her help, there may be a chance for the Justice League and their counterparts to save their worlds.
Story – 5: This issue, like this entire series, so far, has been a treat to read. Every page is enjoyable from start to finish. It’s perhaps my favorite comic of 2021. Is it my all-time favorite? That is a difficult question to answer. Yet, it’s up there with “Kraven’s Last Hunt” as far as what J.M. DeMatteis has brought to the medium. I found this issue was chock full of his classic character development and solid storytelling that are the very reasons I love comic books so much.
Art – 5: The art in this series so far has been absolutely fantastic. Ethan Beavers has given fans of the Timmverse like myself great visuals that are extremely faithful to JLU.
Cover Art – 5: This cover was unexpected, but it works perfectly to make fans curious about the comic’s content. James Tucker should do more Timmverse comics for DC.
