This Just Happened: The Outsider On The Inside

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #22 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).
All cards are up in the air as “Trinity War” pits the Justice League, the Justice League of America and the Justice League Dark against one another.
But not only is each team getting knockout punches from another, now they’re tearing each other apart from the inside as well! Who can they trust but themselves? And who is on what team? It’s as if someone shuffled the deck and the teams are forming new alliances.
Superman, already accused of killing Doctor Light, seems to be leading his own team. Wonder Woman, on the other hand, has recruited the Justice League Dark to help her track down Pandora, while Batman is off with the Phantom Stranger and members of the Justice League to stop her at any cost.
Amidst all of this, who is holding Madame Xanadu captive? Known as The Outsider, this elusive villain is the leader of the Secret Society and has a mole within the Justice League. But how long has he been dealing from the bottom? Who has The Outsider turned? Pick a card, folks, it could be any of them.
JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #22, by writer Jeff Lemire and artist Mikel Janin, is available in stores now.
