Lionel Luthor's Guide to the DC Universe in Justice League #18 (Spoilers)

Anyone fancy a self-causing time loop?

Today's Justice League #18 lays it all out. The Source Wall breaks. Causing it to spit a bit of the Totality back in time and space where it is found by Vandal Savage. Who over the centuries tries to find its worth. And hires Lionel Luthor to try and take its importance apart. Which he does. Which ends up handing the Totality to Luthor who uses it, in a scenario which ends up breaking the Source Wall.

Is that right? We learnt that there was a lot more to Lionel Luthor than the drunkard layabout previously established. Someone clearly liked Smallville…

And now we are getting the Sixth Dimension to come – as well as the denizens of the 5th, like Mr Mxyzptlk… but it seems he never found the Sage Force or the Source Wall…

Still, at least now we know where Lex gets it all from.
