FOREVER EVIL is finally over. It had some fun and interesting moments. Now we get to see the repercussions and aftermath. A big one is Lex Luthor is now seen as a hero by the general public. We see on the cover that Lex and Captain Cold is part of the League. Surely this can't go well with the other members. That's part of the fun here, seeing how the heck this can all happen.
Before we get into that part, we do see the war might not be fully over. The Secret Society still exists. Sort of. It makes for a great scene.
The truth is, Lex is a great character. He can be a complex one as well. His motives and actions are never quite what you'd expect. This clearly adds a new dynamic to the team and book. Add to that, the mystery of the power ring from Earth 3, there's not going to be any time to relax after FOREVER EVIL.
Lex as a hero and part of the Justice League is pretty far out. Regardless of how much positive press the League might need after this fiasco, allowing Lex into their ranks just seems a bit much. Yes, it's going to be interesting to see play out. But it feels like a matter of how long until he shows his true colors? And I don't want to make the comparison but it feels like when Norman Osborn was seen as a hero after SECRET INVASION.
Very minor concerns with the art. Captain Cold looked really young, younger than I remember noticing before. You could see a difference in the way Reis and Mahnke drew Lex's head.
It's a new dawn for the Justice League. The League managed to survive against the Crime Syndicate but at the price of Lex Luthor now seen as a hero. Lex on the League seems like a crazy idea but seeing how it works out will add some spice to the title. Who doesn't like seeing tension between team members? Now that FOREVER EVIL is over, we can get ready for what's next. By the look of things here, it's not going to be easy for the team.
