Welcome To The Justice Society, You Won't Survive The Experience

Spoilers of course. The New Justice Society Of America comic book series launches from Geoff Johns and Michael Janin this week, Flashpoint Beyond, New Golden Age and Stargirl & The Lost Children has set up the reality for a series that has been a very long time coming. And may have even taken the existence of the movie Black Adam to get it off the board. But anyone coming to this comic from that movie will find something very different. In fact, we have something closer to Dan DiDio's junked DC Timeline play out across the comic book.

The Lives And Deaths Of The New Justice Society Of America

Previews have already established it as a series crossing the decades, narrated by Huntress, the daughter of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, and set after the death of Batman. , rather than being set in the past, it is a lot closer to the present day with the second or third or fourth generation of the Justice Society.  With the new team that Power Girl recruited with the acquiescence of Doctor Fate playing the role in this world of the Justice League. Bleeding Cool revealed we have a  Justice Society of America made up of Doctor Fate, Huntress, Power Girl, The Gentleman Ghost, Solomon Grundy, The Harlequin's Son. Icicle, The Mist and Ruby as well as who they were and what relationship they had to existing DC Comics characters.
