Perpetua is rising and her first expression of power will be a big one.
The rise of Doom and the symbol of Perpetua are everywhere. Every world in the multiverse can see it and Earth 19 will be the first universe to feel the wrath of Perpetua. As that universe is swept up in her power, the rest of the Justice League is back at the Hall of Justice trying to find a way to stop her.
At the same time, Kendra and Shayne are on the run from Luthor as the realization that their plan has failed and they’ve been betrayed dawns on everyone. With Luthor more powerful than ever and the promise of more power and conflict to come, Perpetua decides to tie up some loose ends and one of those is the potential threat Kendra skill poses.
Things are looking bleak and Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV are taking the story to its darkest moment for the heroes. Raising the stakes for the multiverse by having Perpetua flex her powers on a familiar universe to DC fans shows that the writers are not shying away from the repercussions of moving this story forward towards Doom. There are some great story and character moments throughout and as dark as the story gets, the writing leaves enough humor and hope to bring me back for more.
Francis Manapul does some beautiful things with the art in this issue. Everything looks amazing and there are some intense and amazingly laid out visuals and action.
