The Return of the Metal Men Justice League in Justice League #37 – For About a Panel (Spoilers)

Man, Earth 44 is one very unlucky dimension in the DC multiverse. Back in Infinite Crisis #7… it was reduced to a crumbling shard that collided with the heroes. That consisted of the Metal Men and their leader Doc Will Tornado, a combination of Dr Will Magnus, creator of the Metal Men and sentient android superhero Red Tornado. The Metal Men resembled the members of the Justice League., I am betting Batman was made out of Batmanium in this iteration…


Grant Morrison destroyed as he created… but by the Multiversity Guidebook and the New 52, it appears that Earth 44 had been recreated, with a bipolar Doctor Will Tornado. With an Iron Batman this time. And a whole Metal League defined.


But in today's Justice League #37? Just as the very first identified Elseworld, the Earth of Gotham By Gaslight, was destroyed by Perpetua a couple of issues ago
