This Just Happened: Power Ring's Origin Revealed

This Just Happened: Power Ring's Origin Revealed

By Clark Bull Friday, August 1st, 2014

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read JUSTICE LEAGUE #32 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).

This past Monday, we gave you an exclusive preview of JUSTICE LEAGUE #32. And we had a first look at the new Doom Patrol last month as The Chief, Negative Man, Element Woman, Cliff “Robotman” Steele, and Elasti-Girl arrived on the scene of Jessica Cruz/Power Ring’s rampage.  

Now, the “INJUSTICE LEAGUE” continues with Chapter Three: “Birth.” But Superwoman – one of three surviving members of the Crime Syndicate – is only three months pregnant. What does “Birth” refer to?

This action-packed issue has a ton of spoilers: Lex Luthor recruits a new Head of Security for Lexcorp, the Justice League makes a direct attack on Power Ring, and the Doom Patrol’s leader – Dr. Niles “The Chief” Caulder – shows himself to be as callous and conniving as Luthor. Or possibly even more!

But there’s another moment in it that just can’t be overlooked: Shazam hits Jessica Cruz with a blast that lets Cyborg get close enough to communicate with Power Ring. And Power Ring’s secrets come spilling out! Take a look at page 18, below, as we learn Power Ring’s origin, whyJessica Cruz is so fearful, and what the being that destroyed Power Ring’s world is after!

Sound off in the comments section about Power Ring’s endgame: making a beacon to be seen across the Multiverse! Who is Power Ring signaling?

JUSTICE LEAGUE #32, written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by Doug Mahnke and Keith Champagne, is available in stores now.
