Justice League #24 is all about reversals in a big way. Lois Lane is a big bad. The World Forger. Oh and Batman – or rather, what Batman will be. As we start to move away from the Justice League of the present day to the Judge Dredd League of the future. And it starts with re-education camps. Taking villains and turning them into soldiers.
From the cradle to the grave… and we have the World Forger taking through the Batman from the present through what his future self would do, would decide. Oh and have another Crisis while we’re at it. There’s a lot of Crisis about at the moment.
And what Batman would use to forge this future… the Son Box? A repalcement for Damian Wayne perhaps? Element X from Grant Morrison and Doug Mahnke’s New Gods of course, the Tenth Metal, the “fire of the Fourth World”, the power source of most technology belonging to the New Gods, such as Mother Boxes, Father Boxes and the Miracle Machine – and capable of overcoming anything from the Dark Multiverse. It can be manipulated by thought alone to achieve nearly anything, and is present in small quantities in every single thing, sentient being or otherwise, in the Multiverse.
And also makes far a rather natty Final Suit which can do all sorts of things it seems, with an Element X chair at the middle of it – Bruce Wayne’s own Mobius Chair, telling hom over and over again who the Joker is…
But not everything goes to plan. And we get to see present day Batman in his Final Suit. After all, he is the Law..
Toy for Christmas anyone?

“The Sixth Dimension” chapter five! The League’s plan is in full swing, but one member of the team isn’t on board with their message and sides with the World Forger! Betrayed, there’s only one person who can turn the tide of this battle. Can Superman find the strength to escape his prison planet and save the Justice League, or is the League doomed to live out their days trapped in the Sixth Dimension?!In Shops: May 15, 2019
