What You Need to Know:
Pressure from the government, lawyers, newscasters, society, and The Fan have finally broken the Justice League apart. With Batman going his own way and leaving Cyborg as the new leader, what could possibly go wrong?
In This Issue:
“Shark Tank” Rub’Al Khali, Oman. Days Before. In the middle of the desert, a very worn down and hot (and I mean that in both ways) Aquaman is trying to outrun three outlaws on jeeps. Recalling a time when he had a life before the League and how his choices have lead him here, he is helped by The Fan disguised as him. Simon Baz arrives as the fight is over and The Fan is leaving to retrieve him after the team was scattered to find the mess.
“Batmen” Portland, Now. Outside Washington, a horde of men dressed as Batman have taken over. The news wakes Jessica from her sleep, which in turn causes her to have an anxiety attack because of her last encounter with Batman. Twitter is blowing up with the news of what’s going on with some people supporting Cyborg and some not. As he and his lawyer are about to leave, Cyborg runs into an old friend who needs help. Cyborg takes him back to the Watchtower to grab a panicking Jessica and Simon to help their old friend.
“The Ball” Justice League Watchtower. Wonder Woman and Flash have received Batman’s call and grab who they can to help the League of America with their current problems. Twitter is blowing up again with the good and bad of what is happening while both leagues work to contain the problem. But it seems they went straight to help the “rich” folks and forgot about the “poor” folks. So, a call was made to Cyborg, who realizes that is where he should have been.
Man, I feel so bad for Cyborg. Always one to be a team player, now his first time being a true leader comes with a bit too many responsibilities, some he can’t help but worry about. And let’s face it, you would worry too. The writing is once again so thought-provoking while reading it and just plain fun to read.
