Is Amanda Waller the Jeffrey Epstein of the DC Universe? Event Leviathan #3 Spoilers…

It can be a little peculiar when events of the day seem to directly mirror the events in that week’s comic books, despite them having been created months before. And then reality seems to hold a mirror up to art. Whether that was images of destruction of the World Trade Centre just before the events of 9/11, Wonder Woman comics featuring the phrase The Death Of Diana just as Princess Diana was killed, or even Viz Comics’ Baxter Basics accurately mirroring that week’s scandal involving our now Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.

Even recent Lois Lane storylines with her being banned by the White House Press Briefings were written before something similar happened to CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Lois Lane is also the lead in the current Event Leviathan comic from Brian Bendis and Alex Maleev. As the  most dangerous womn on Earth, going up against whoever may be suspected of being the head of the new organisation Leviathan, that has taken down all the major spy and espionage groups in the world, replacing them with itself.
