DC Comics' Naomi To Be A Queen? More Glimpses Of The Future

In Britain, we have just learned that Camilla Parker-Bowles will be granted the title of Queen Consort, rather than Princess Consort, when Prince Charles ascends to the throne. But she is not the only person to discover she will be Queen this week. Today's Justice League Annual 2o22 has also been doing its own time travelling, originally solicited as Justice League Annual 2021.

Such futures are always up in the air…
