This Just Happened: The Crime Syndicate is about to meet...

By Clark Bull Friday, February 7th, 2014

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read FOREVER EVIL #5 and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).

Is there anything that can stop the Crime Syndicate? So far, they haven’t had any problem infiltrating themselves here on Earth and progressing with world domination. With no Justice League to stop them, there’s little they need to worry about. Sure, the Crime Syndicate has their own infighting and insubordination and more than a few secrets they’re keeping from each other, but they leave it to Earth’s various power-hungry villains to do their dirty work!

But now there are a few threats they’re going to need to deal with themselves.

First, Lex Luthor has joined forces with the toughest rebel team around. Sinestro, Black Adam, Slade, and Bizarro are rallying behind Luthor to form the Injustice League. And, while just a few days ago Batman might have had the influence to call the shots, in this new regime he’s outnumbered, out-powered and outvoted. Can the Dark Knight allow Lex Luthor to lead the fight against the Crime Syndicate?

And, in the final pages of Forever Evil #5, the creature that destroyed Earth Three has found the Crime Syndicate! They fled their dying world to escape it the first time. What can they do to stop this creature now that it's here?

Above, take a look at the final double page spread of FOREVER EVIL #5. Then place your bets in the comments section below about what the Crime Syndicate will do next!

FOREVER EVIL #5, written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by David Finch and Richard Friend, is available in stores now.
