I don't like that Superman beyond wears a cape now. It's very not futuristic. This books looks cool, so I might pick it up. Who is the blonde dude?

Our Terry was sent by Superman to the Justice Lords Universe to find out what happened to that universes Batman. Our Terry then ran into this universes version of him who is a petty criminal in debt to the Jokerz and decided to team up with him to weaken the dictator foothold that has ensnared this universes Gotham and try to get his counterpart to turn over a new leaf.

Oh well he looks cool, and I hope the real Terry dyes his hair.

It seems Justice Lords Universe Dick has had a better life than his counterpart.

He has. You know, apart from his world being ravaged by a super-powered global civil war and his Batman being tricked and brutally murdered by the love of his life's evil counterpart - Lord WW, Dick has had a good life. He married Barbara. So s'all good.

She needs a weaker man to boss around.

I am loving this arc so far. Good stuff, only minor problem is with Justice Lord Superman, he aint evil but he aint good either. Ai thought that he was going to be a Superman who if pushed would kill not becoming a ruthless person. Anyways, still a great story and the art is ok, it works for me.

Supes should have a retracting cape in Bat-Beyond's suit does.

@nightfang: Haha. I imagine that completely steamrolled you. Sorry for the spoilers but by all means, read it - if you're not afraid of destroying your childhood memories and/or fantasies of the JL cartoons. I know I did... talk about Freudian excuses. GEEZ

I am really tired of tyrannical Superman vs terrorist... er, freedom fighter Batman. Seriously, this same storyline has been done over and over again since the Dark Knight Returns. The Justice League always goes evil... for some poorly explained reason, but Batman always comes, in some form or another, to save the day. Just once, I want a story where Batman is the villain. Where it is revealed the anti-social, paranoid, workaholic who arms children with dangerous weaponry turns out to be the bad guy. No one will see it coming.

@bwanasimba: ...Seems to me that heat vision from outer space would make that kind of a non-issue. I don't think it's really possible to view Batman as the main bad guy when every member of The League could probably take him out the minute he stars spewing any rhetoric. The only thing that would really stop that is Supermans' morals, but I don't think any of The Lanterns and possibly Wonder Woman would have a problem, and while he may have an idea of how to beat Lantern, he has no concrete plan for combating Wonder Woman in the New 52.

his cape should have been neon and glowing with some kinda transparency, like strider hiryus scarf in his latest game.
