The Justified | Thoughts on The Multiversity: The Just #1

The Multiversity: The Just #1 (DC) – This third installment was a lot more fun than the previous one that focused on the Society of Superheroes (S.O.S), the old-school Golden Age contingency of characters. The characters of The Just (and Justice League) are all younger, legacy variants of the ones we know so well. Damian Wayne is Batman, Chris Kent is Superman, Alexis Luthor is Batman’s once secret girlfriend and whose dad had killed the original Superman – it all makes for awkward relations between the two “World’s Finest” best friends. Many characters abound here, as per The Multiversity usual standard. The running theme in this issue is that this new generation of heroes is bored due to a lack of interesting or even truly threatening villainy and activity. Batman is especially unimpressed, saying: “What this world needs is an old-school super-villain like my mom or my gran’dad to liven things up.” The overarching plot and meta-concept of the series thickens here as the comic books from our world are fully exposed to be sinister weapons in theirs. It’ll be real interesting to see where writer Grant Morrison is ultimately going with this strange, twisted epic. – Rating: 4.0
