The sons of Perpetua join forces to stop her reign over the multiverse. While the members of the Justice League, still diverged across the past and future, try to get back to assist their teammates. With foes at every turn – this issue packs action and despair hand in hand.
We open to J’onn floating in the Promethean Galaxy calling out for his father’s aid as Monitor, World Forger and the Anti-Monitor join together as the Ultra-Monitor to fight off against Perpetua. At the same time, Kendra and Lex face off one on one during the encounter. We get brought back to 1941 where Aquaman, John Stewart and the Flash are with the Justice Society heading to Atlantis to recover the Conch of Arion to get them back to the present. However, upon their arrival at Atlantis, they find the Legion of Doom has taken the King and plans to do more damage. Meanwhile, in the future, the Trinity is having a handful with Braniac throwing everything he can at them. As they get rocked by his attacks, we see Kamandi run off to get some help from Justice League Unlimited!
Snyder and Tynion give us the beginning of a heightened climax to this tale, with mergers, hope, action and a final page that leaves us pinching our arms to see if we were dreaming this entire time. A great addition to these last few issues we have with these writers.
The art team has been delivering this series. We’re spoiled with colourful and electrifying spreads and panels that enhance the action and stir up emotions on our heroes despair stricken faces. A top tier issue for this team and it shows.
With all teams, past, present and future, at a standstill against their foes – we have a final glimmer of hope to see if Perpetua can be defeated. With action-filled fights and surprising moments on every other page – this issue is a classic climactic builder.
