What Just Happened:

The Justice League returned to the ruined world of Angor accompanied by the Dreamslayer, but when the foreign villain gave way to a massive fissure at the last moment, Lord Havoc returned to the fray.

What’s Happening Now:

With the Adjudicator watching on, Havoc attempts to tear through the JLA before being met with an electric punch to the face from Batman, which doesn’t do nearly as much as the Caped Crusader had hoped. Dreamslayer returns to lay a beat down on Havoc, declaring that now he sees that the Lord has become the very oppressor he claimed to once fight against. Batman once again goes fist-to-fist with Havoc as the pair debate the ethics of saving Angor, but much more specifically, the ethics of Havoc himself. As the Adjudicator understands what needs to happen, Angor begins a rebirth from the flames. The world makes itself anew as we cut back to our Earth and a different future…

Reed Strong’s Strong Read:

Lord Havoc and the two particular analog worlds Grant Morrison created during Multiversity have led to a few truly interesting opportunities for storytelling and seeing the failures of Havoc mixed with the failures of the Adjudicator mix together for a compelling tale here. The pacing is fast, and the fights are thrilling. It’s wrapping up more loose ends as we slowly approach No Justice, so there’s only so much time and so many stories left for this JLA we’ve come to know the past year.

Summary
Lord Havoc falls to doom as Angor lives again, and Batman leads another team into the crazy realms only he knows how to parse.
Good
  • Strong pacing.
  • Good fights.
  • Great rebirth sequence.
  • Strong, legitimate philosophical struggles.
Bad
  • Lord Havoc is hit or miss.
  • The stakes are entirely based on another world, and not our base of operations.
