"Forever Evil" Gets a Slogan

Thankfully it's not "bad to the bone."

We know "Trinity War" will lead into "Forever Evil," and now DC has given its next big event its own slogan: When the unimaginable happens (unexpected for the second cover... seems like it'll be "When the un___ happens" for each). Seeing as the villains are taking over, it seems safe to assume that's the "unimaginable" thing they're talking about. But really, what's up with Batman (or at least it appears to be him) being in the first cover?

Viners, are you stoked for Villains Month and "Forever Evil?"

Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz will now be the two Earth Lanterns. All the others are off planet so that makes sense.

I think this slogan is hinting at

I think that this is going to be a resistance team against the Secret Society. Based on solicits we know that Black Manta, Black Adam and Flashes Rouges do not want anything to do with the Secret Society. Dick Grayson is Batman and this is a resistance team while the JL, JLA, and JLD are "dead"

Which would explain why Batman is there.

Total speculation.

Now that you mention it, it does make sense given the villains on the cover, but I guess my curiosity is how Bizarro would fit in that scenario

new Gl female nice and manta looks retrded

Edited by Knightfall225

maybe it is Batman and not Dick in the cowl because Bruce probably figured out the secret societies plan and formed a resistance team full of villains while Dick ( Nightwing) formed the hero resistance team

What's with the third one? Is that Superman and Catwoman?

Posted by Xwraith

I'm only reading one DC book (Green Arrow), so I probably won't be following this.

So Hal and the Corps., I am assuming are too busy fighting Relic to help out? And Jessica Cruz was kinda fighting Baz in that sneak peek Johns provided, right? So maybe she starts out a little crazy/evil then helps out with Simon's help/training?

Well, based on the fact the her heel seems to be cracking the floor as well, I thought this might have something to do with the Crime Syndicate, considering that Superwoman (WW's counterpart) usually wears black. Just a guess though.

Oh yes the Crime Syndicate are supposed to be showing up aren't they? That's a much better guess.

Either that or Catwoman gets kryptonian powers lol Curious to see their new designs though.

UPDATED WITH A COVER NIGHTWING FANS ARE SURE TO LOVE!

Nightwing NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Let's hope nightwing dies not Dick Grayson.

Posted by MrMazz

Kind of bummed to see Sinestro showing up again I was hoping he would be out of action for a long while.

Posted by 34g3f3ert3t43

@blkson: I wonder how they are going to explain the return of Sinestro? After GL#20, I assumed his return would be WAYYY down the road.

Posted by blkson

The Nightwing image is for shock value.

Posted by blkson

Nightwing NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's hope nightwing dies not Dick Grayson.

Maybe "Nightwing" will die, but Dick Grayson will live on as Batman and lead a resistance team.

Are people just now realizing that Black Manta looks dumb? Because I've known that for years.

Posted by Squalleon

@blkson: That's what i think too.Also Nightwing has an october issue so we know that until november he is okay :-P

I swear Didio has it in for the former sidekicks of the Silver Age characters. Or Harras is a douche.

I'm loving the female lantern.

He's been trying to kill Nightwing ever since Infinite Crisis. Surprised he hasn't succeed so far yet tbh.

Meh, i don't know about this. But it don't catch my eye.

I know right! lmao. dude has always look ridiculous. Although he looks like absolute s#!+ in Finch's art style.

Posted by Lvenger

@comicman24: I heard him mention a story where a check out attendant held his baggage back and wouldn't release it unless Didio promised Nightwing wouldn't die in Infinite Crisis. The lengths some fans go to eh?

Geoff Johns is the one that told him not to.Let's hope he hasn't changed his mind :-P

@lvenger: lol Really? Well, that explains it then lol

Posted by MartianManhunterIsBetterThanCyborg

One again Wonder Woman villains get the shaft.

Posted by knightofthechronicle

@lvenger: It might be Bizarro and Catwoman since they're together on the other cover. That's my idea.

Posted by Mangakid1995

I have a bad feeling this will be DC's Dark Reign, which would make Trinity War Civil War. This upsets me.

Posted by Mrfuzzynutz

Is that Bryan Hitch doing the art on the Villians cover? if so, it looks like a rush job, and if it isn't a bad imitation

Edited by crevicekid

That female GL looks like Soranik Natu to me

Edited by IDontLikeBirds

Doubt it's an Owlman of any sort. I don't see the point of them dressing up as Batman, and even though someone pointed out that suit is black (or at least appears so), it still has a Batman symbol on it. I'd go with it being Dick or just Bruce himself, teaming up with the "villains" to stop something else. Notice the tagline is "the unimaginable happens", and not anything involving evil like everyone keeps suggesting it should be. I don't think the "villains" are going to be doing anything evil. I'm going out on a limb and just comparing it to the movie Megamind, (heroes gone, villains "win", villains go good to stop something else).

If Batman never loses, and the villains win, then logic follows that Batman becomes a villain.

Comment of the month, maybe year.

Posted by Saren

Given that the man has a cape and the woman has heels and both are (presumably) villains, seems likely that they're Ultraman and Superwoman.

Yaaaaaaaay Parallax Sinestro is back!

Posted by tchalla3000

I'm thinking that those are the teen titans dressed as their adult counterparts. It was mentioned that the teen titans fight back, maybe they figured since the league is "dead," it was their responsibility to carry on the names. Just a thought.

Posted by Lvenger

Yaaaaaaaay Parallax Sinestro is back!

But that doesn't make sense. He said he'd dump Parallax somewhere and that he had nothing left to fight for now Korugar was gone. It seemed to be implied he would take a self imposed exile until he rejoined the GLC in the future. Why would he be on Earth during Forever Evil?

nope,he won't die...

For the teen titans thing,it looks like Superman (perhaps Connor,or Ultraman) Batman in the front (or Tim,or Owlman or something)...and I don't know who the lady in black is.....Superwoman?

I know he won't die die. I mean the alieas with die. He will prob fake his death.

Thats obviously Ultra Man and Superwoman on the Teen Titans image. DC is going to use this opportunity to soft reboot the Teen Titans. With a better cast of heroes and a new creative team is what I'm thinking.

Edited by LordRequiem

Black Adam is gone though what the dickens? I can't tell if that's Hal as Parallax or not but frankly I don't care so long as someone gets possessed by an emotional entity.

Edited by nappystr8

Haha, with all the stories and covers DC shoehorns Batman into, I guess it's not surprising that he would be on the cover to the all-villain Forever Evil as well. Although I must admit, I am interested to find out why he's there, or who else might be under that mask.

No not Nightwing!

After looking at solicits, I think Lodell will stay on the book. Forever Evil could bring about some new members though.
