USA TODAY’S FIRST LOOK AT THE CLIMACTIC BATTLE IN JUSTICE LEAGUE #6
Mon, 02/27/2012 - 4:00pm
Out this week, JUSTICE LEAGUE #6 gives us the climatic battle we’ve all been waiting for: Darkseid versus the World’s Great Super Heroes. And USA TODAY gives us an exclusive first glimpse at the battle royale – the tide of which does not favor the would-be super team. USA TODAY spoke with DC Comics’ own creative super team – New York Times bestselling writer Geoff Johns and legendary artist Jim Lee – about these disparate heroes, and what it will take for them to unite against a foe more powerful than anything they’ve encountered before. "You really see Batman's superpower is elevating the others around him,” said Johns. “Other than being a great tactician and a great fighter, he does know how to motivate people in the right way and crack into them like a safe." Adds Lee: "Every character steps up and does something important in taking down Darkseid and saving the day. That's the trick to any team book facing one ultimate bad guy is how do you get every character doing something meaningful, and the story delivers on that." JUSTICE LEAGUE #6 lands in comic book stores this Wednesday.
