With the release of JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, DC Comics-The New 52 officially kicked off. Coverage has been widespread today. Looking for a comprehensive overview? Look no further.
Mysteries deepen as secrets begin pouring out. Hidden identities begin to reveal themselves. Alliances form on both sides of good and evil. And as new villains launch attacks, new heroes will emerge onto the scene. This November, nothing is off limits.
Still trapped in a world unfamiliar to the one he knows, Booster Gold is held hostage by Nathaniel Adam, the man he once knew as his friend, Captain Atom. As his memories of the world he knew are starting to fade, Booster is running out of time to escape from the clutches of Nathaniel, defeat Doomsday, and find The Flash to restore the universe to its rightful setting. But when he locates Barry and attempts to use his speed force to fix the altered timeline, he’ll quickly learn that saving the world does not come without severe consequences.
Central City is filled with villains cleverly trying to stay under the radar of The Flash. So then why is one of them doing everything in her power to attract his attention? And when an obsessed fan gets out of hand, Wally West must follow an unlikely trail of victims to his latest challenge: a gallery of his most notorious Rogues.
