Preview: JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #5

So, you think you know what really happened in the last issue? Come see if your theory is right!

If you still haven't read JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #4, now is the time to bolt.

Seriously, go away.

Alright, I'm going to assume they're gone. As you know, Catwoman was allegedly killed in the last issue and since then we've all have our theories on why we think Selina Kyle is actually still alive (you know, aside from appearing on upcoming solicit covers). Today, DC has released a preview of the next issue and it's quite revealing. Check it out below and see if you can solve what happened.

Written by Geoff Johns and including art from Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #5 goes on sale tomorrow.

@shadowswordmaster:

Actually its not Martian Manhunter. As the man in the purple said her team mates are fighting Shaggy Man as shown in the last issue, and Martian Manhunter is with them. So whatever brought Catwoman back with boiling blood and glowing red eye should be really intresting.

Man, this preview is a major spoiler...And I can't wait for all of the people who went apesh*t over Catwoman's "death" to read this. Silly rabbits, they should know deaths in comics mean very little.

Proof It's not martian manhunter

I think he is in fact the Joker because of the "ha" and he DOES know batman's "adress", as this was the whole point of DOTF

I think in this case the "death" was valid, and it's not a case of comic book death, because it was written not as an actual death, but as a cliffhanger ending, a shock twist, without the intent of actually killing off the character and then deciding "oh, now let's bring her back".

I was thinking the pasty guy was actually Alfred from earth 3. Wasn't that the crime syndicate earth? He might have been jokerised at some point. And as for Catwoman- Martian Manhunter or perhaps, less likely, a red lantern?

Posted by ULTRAstarkiller

If Catwoman really was or is dead, Batman would solo all of them plus the JlA cause it's there fault.

Something terrible happened to Dr. Rape? Good. Hope he dies.

I'm in agreement with you.

Posted by ptigrusmagus

This much was obvious. So where are all those people who were standing on their soap boxes blabbing about the unfair treatment of women in comics, "Selina got fridged wah wah boo hoo."

Tell that to the wave of fans that made angry blogs about how killing characters for shock is becoming unbearable, and the constant "No, DC, you suck! I love Selina" comments. I knew she wasn't ''dead'' or at least wasn't gonna stay that way, yet people instantly went up in arms over it.

The Catwoman impostor is probably Darkseid's daughter.

Posted by BumBurger

i was sad when i saw catwoman was shot, Now im sad knowing that catwoman is officially "dead" :(

Posted by RedQueen

@bumburger: I'm pretty sure she isn't... Unless you mean it in the way that she isn't like the pre52 Catwoman that is.

Edited by Kid_Nacho

@redqueen: It's most likely some kind of shape shifter, or a surprise addition to the team that's been kept under wraps. I'd like to think it's the latter, but I'm pretty sure someone would've let that slip in this digital age

I'd love to read this, I really would, but for the love of all that's good and pure I can't get my hands on a freakin' issue of JLA 4!

Agreed. Except, I would actually prefer if they got a better replacement for Finch.

Posted by MrMazz

So who is the dude in the purple suit and white face? I haven't been able to figure that one out.

Posted by evilvegeta74

Not a fan of Catwoman at all.

Edited by RedQueen

@mrmazz: I'm thinking Alfred of Earth 3, or at least a character that is based on the Alfred of Earth 3

Edited by Protoflash

.....Did they just give catwoman that stupid ass nine lives powers like from the movie?????

Posted by nicholai441

I just realized catwoman's injury is healing. interesting... not exactly sure what could cause blood to flow back into the gunshot wound.

Yes yes it would be

Posted by RussT

It seems unlikely, but it sort of has the same appearance as a red lantern. Their blood does boil. But why/how/when would the context have been built for this?

Posted by Trodorne

Does anyone feel the need to deck amanda waller in the face?

Posted by Jasoninthewoods

Did anyone seriously think that Catwoman was dead?

Edited by Mucklefluga

That's gotta be joker in the bowler hat and that's gotta be manhunter as selina.

Posted by Eternal19

The art is pretty crappy

Edited by VSG413

I want to know what's gonna happen next. Did she get her hands on some new tech. And if that is Manhunter, I want to know what he did.

Edited by Mangakid1995

@black_claw: now that's not fair at all. That stuff happened in a whole other version of reality. This Dr. Light is a whole new man, literally.

Edited by MTHammer

@trodorne: Yes I think after fours issues of her heartless bull we need to! :)

Posted by MTHammer

In the Free Comic Book Day we saw the red/black room (not sure which) and in one of them there was a red lantern power battery, so hmmmm....

Posted by lifeofvibe
