The sixth issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE will feature the entire team up against one of the biggest super-villains in comics: Darkseid. No question that the 'Master of Darkness' and one of the Justice League's greatest adversaries is bound to put up a serious fight in the upcoming issue of the League's self-titled ongoing series; and today, courtesy of USA Today; we get an example of that.
It's inevitable that these characters will eventually successfully take Darkseid down, but the real story is in how they do it by working together. This next issue will be crucial to telling the story of the Justice League and what brought them together, according to the series writer Geoff Johns.
It's jarring at first when some of them don't get along because that's what they do, right? They always get along...That's something we wanted to put in the DNA — the very first meeting, there's problems and those problems carry on to the present day...In issue 6 you'll see why they're a team, but just because they're a team doesn't mean they're all on the same page and it doesn't mean they all want to be there and it doesn't mean that they'll suddenly become friends overnight. Or ever.
You can check out the full 9-page exclusive preview of the sixth issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE as well as the interview with both writer Geoff Johns and artist Jim Lee on USA Today's site. JUSTICE LEAGUE #6 hits store shelves this Wednesday, February 29th. What do you think?
