In Justice League: The Last Ride, the 7-issue limited series by Chip Zdarksy and Miguel Mendonca, a future Justice League, one which has disbanded due to a tragedy that resulted in the death of the Martian Manhunter, must get back together one more time. Their task: protecting Lobo as he awaits trial for war crimes, a trial which some in the United Planets might prefer never happens, lest it expose their own wrongdoing. Think of it basically like space Republicans blocking an investigation into the January 6th insurrection. To accomplish the task, the league has taken Lobo to the dungeons of Darkseid's torture master, DeSaad, on Apokalips.
But as if all the space Republicans in the galaxy, an alien sex dungeon, and broken relationships aren't bad enough, the League will have one more thing to contend with in the upcoming Justice League: The Last Ride #6, the penultimate issue just revealed in the DC October Solicitations: a traitor. According to the solicit, one of the members of the League will betray the group. Who will it be? Well, we've never trusted that Hal Jordan guy, personally. Though Superman has been acting strange as well.
Check out the solicit below, and DC's full October solicitations here.
