Is this in collected trade yet?? I gotta check this out.

@nightfang: You think so? The Justice Lords appeared on the Justice League Unlimited animated series, in two episodes, back in 2003...

@g_man: Think he is referring to the fact that we have evil Supermen left right and center these days. You have Injustice, you have this, you have Earth-2 and finally Ultraman till FE is over.

It's a potentially interesting story once in a while, but four not very well done ones at the same time... pass.

@outside_85: I just think it's weird implying something that's been around way longer is too similar to what's going on now. But that's fine if he doesn't dig it. I'm loving both this and BATMAN BEYOND 2.0.

Have you read this one yet? It's actually pretty good.

Posted by Onemoreposter

Why.....why am I not reading this?

Posted by Outside_85

@mrtummytumms: I dont really intend to, I'm not into the Beyond universe as such, I know the basics but I cant really say I know the show the same way I know BTAS. I'm looking at this because WW is in it, but quite frankly I'm not terribly interested in yet another story where people like WW and SM turn evil while Batman remains the only good guy, because he's Batman. (Though I admit there appears to be more to than that in this story).

You know what would be really interesting? Batman going evil and everyone scrambling to stop the prepmeister. :)

I'm loving this story arc! The Justice Lords storyline was one of my favorites from the JL cartoon and seeing writers bring them back is great. Things are already getting serious in Batman Beyond 2.0, so I can't wait to see how things go down here. :D

I always liked the Justice Lords as a concept better than the CSA from Earth-3 & wished their earth was incorporated into the multiverse. Have them be Earth-3 & keep the evil CSA on the Antimatter Earth.

But whats the deal with WW? Did she get stuck in the Lord's universe after the DCAU ended?

As for Captain Marvel & Flash, while different, their costume is a red suit with a golden lightning bolt, I kinda wish she had Max Mercury's costume instead. & if she used the speed-formula she could have been continuing all 3 speeders' legacies.

I'll go on record of saying i have multiple times talked about how much i don't like Batman Beyond, but i see the potential it has. I gotta say this comic really makes me think DC should get the animated tv show crap together and make a Justice League Beyond show. Time to brnig back the old DCCU but with new updated animation more Young Justice/animated movies type animation.

@cobramorph: I agree that the Lords are a better concept. The fact that the Justice Lords are portrayed as not completely evil makes them more compelling than the Crime Syndicate. If the Lords earth was incorporated into the DC Multiverse I think it would be Earth-13 since the DCAU takes place on Earth-12.

As for Wonder Woman, after the DCAU ended she remained on the Justice Lords earth after traveling there and falling in love with Lord Batman. Lord Batman apparently was more willing to pursue a relationship with her than our Batman.

I really like these continuing DCAU comics.

Is this DC's way of showing why Batman/WW is a good thing and Superman/WW a bad thing? Its a little weird she ended up with Lord Batman instead of Main Earth Batman.

Edited by RustyRoy

Lord Superman's costume looks badass.

I hope they use this armor at some point in the future.

Posted by CaptainMarvel4Ever

Sigh... I wish they put classic Captain Marvel in a different series. This one has absolutely no appeal to me what so ever. Still, it is nice to see that amazing costume again.

That's what I mean't.

I knew i should have read those JLU comics i didn't even know wonder woman left and stayed in the Justice Lords world and had a relationship with their batman i missed out so much. Maybe i should pick this up.

not to disagree with you but why would you even ask something like that? In JL/JLU they always had a thing for each other so it doesn't surprise any one bro DC isn't trying to show up one over the other.

I should be reading this.

@primebonnick: That was a rhetorical question... Anyways I was joking, should'v made that clear.

Posted by Frozen

Is this in the DCAU? Right?

Posted by dcguy

Wow, that's actually an interesting plot. This title starts to interest me.

yea my bad so hard to read sarcasm on line at times.

Edited by HushoftheWind

I got caught up on this series last night and must say this feels more like a Justice League book than new 52 version( which is not saying much).

Posted by Koays

Lol, this is what happens when people who watched Justice League and ship BM/WW come face to face with people who read comics and ship SM/WW .....the conflict escalates dramatically

I agree, this concept has been done technically since Bizarro days....with "alternate or evil Supermans" we've seen this with Crime Syndicate, then the animated shows, then Smallville even, then Injustice now N52 and BB archs etc I personally enjoy alternate universes, various Supermans. Show's different sides to him "How Superman would react in a different Universe or if his good will was broken etc"

When does this come out or is this apart of the current BBU series? Cause I'm reading that currently and seems to be leading to this.
