DC Comic’s ‘No Justice’ Lays Groundwork For Raven, Harley, and More Joining the Justice League!
If you’re like me, you too have been waiting for Raven, Starfire, and even Beast Boy to join the Justice League. Turns out DC Comics has been thinking the same thing. The conclusion of Dark Nights: Metal will be bringing huge changes to the Justice League rosters through No Justice.
DC Comics is currently experiencing a huge event named Metal. Once the event ends on March 14, 2018, with Issue #6, it’ll open the door to a four-issue weekly miniseries kicking off on May 9, 2018, called Justice League: No Justice. The upcoming miniseries will be co-written by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV (openly bisexual), and Joshua Williamson, with Francis Manapul serving as the artist.
Furthermore, the conclusion of Justice League: No Justice will set the stage for a number of Justice League comics starting in June of this year. Scott Snyder will write the flagship series with the rest being written by Tynion, Williamson, and more. As of yet, no artists for the new titles have been announced.
Snyder is currently busy writing Metal, which is being drawn by Greg Capullo. The main event focuses on the Justice League fighting seven evil Batmans, from the Dark Multiverse, invading the DC Universe.
“We thought we knew the entire map of the DC cosmos,” Snyder said in a statement given to IGN. “We thought we had explored all there was to explore. But now we know that all this time the Multiverse was nothing but a fishbowl, and now we’ve been dumped into the ocean, unleashing terrifying new threats, and wondrous new possibilities. Metal opened up channels of storytelling that Francis, James, Joshua and I are excited to explore in a big way. When we’re finished, fans will never look at the Justice League in the same way again.”
Coming to the plot of No Justice, Brainiac warns the Justice League about a cosmic-level threat that’s heading toward Earth. The Justice League’s realization that the team’s combined strength won’t be enough for the upcoming battle leads to Brainiac advising the heroes to ally with villains and split into four specialized teams. Each team ends up becoming responsible for the fate of a different alien world with failure translating into the destruction of the DC Universe.
Team Mystery includes Superman, Starfire, Martian Manhunter, Sinestro and Starro. Team Entropy has Batman, Deathstroke, Lex Luther, Lobo and Beast Boy. Team Wisdom has Cyborg, The Flash, Harley Quinn, Atom and Robin (Damian Wayne). Team Wonder has Wonder Woman, Raven, Zatanna, Doctor Fate, and Etrigan the Demon.
I’m really happy that Raven and the rest of the Teen Titans will get to join the big league in the upcoming series. They deserve it. Also, fans of Raven can expect to see a lot of her this year. The first issue of her 12-issue solo series was released this week. She’ll also continue appearing in the main Teen Titans series.
Furthermore, next month’s Dark Knights Rising: The Wild Hunt #1 (written by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV and Joshua Williamson) will show the Dark Knights from Metal going to the farthest reaches of the Multiverse to stop The Flash, Cyborg, Raven and Detective Chimp from completing their desperate quest to save all of existence.
So, 2018 is going to be awesome for Raven fans!
“I’m laying out the biggest action of my life,” Manapul said in a statement. “The Justice League realizes that they need to expand their reach to become something bigger than they have ever been before. If you thought my work for Justice League: Darkseid War was huge, I’m taking the League to the edge of the cosmos with ‘No Justice.’ Anyone who has asked for Harley Quinn, Martian Manhunter, Starfire, Zatanna, The Atom, Raven, or Doctor Fate to be in their personal Justice League will stand up and cheer.”
