Today sees the launch of the new Future State: Justice League #1, combining all the future versions of the Justice Leaguers – who once upon a time when this was known as 5G would have been the Justice League going forward. And we get to see where they are all at in their respective timelines.
Previously, Bleeding Cool had stated "The original Justice League team got too big, brought in too many members, and so one betrayed them and spilt their secrets." and that "Future versions of the Justice League maintain mandatory secret identities and no fraternisation between members." But we also stated that "Yara Flor, Wonder Woman declare she will no longer be part of the Justice League while it is still associated with the United Planets. Stuff went down." How do the two align? It seems, by being set in different times.
In Justice League, we learn of a great betrayal. No, not Stephanie Brown, that's another (still unpublished) book.
And a new policy as a result.
Of course, we do…
But what of Yana Flor and the Justice League? It appears that is to come later, is to do with the United Planets, and must be set between Future State: Justice League and Future State: Superman/Wonder Woman, also published today.
