What's New In The New 52: Expanding the FOREVER EVIL...

Welcome to What's New in The New 52 – where you, the fans, get a sneak peek at the stuff that crosses our desks. This little feature is a way to keep you all in the loop about what's new, different and exciting in The New 52 – whether it's a character design, cover, splash page or panel.

A couple of weeks ago, I told you about FOREVER EVIL: BLIGHT. Today, I’m back to tell you a little bit more about just how the universe of FOREVER EVIL is expanding in the coming months.

In FOREVER EVIL #3, you’ll learn that not all super-villains are created equal. In fact, there are quite a few different degrees of villainy – so where do your favorite bad guys fall?

With the world of FOREVER EVIL being so upside down, former allies Steve Trevor and Slade Wilson find themselves on opposing sides in the upcoming miniseries, FOREVER EVIL: A.R.G.U.S. Plus, when you throw in Copperhead, things don’t exactly look up for Trevor. But can Trevor’s intensely personal stake in trying to find Wonder Woman act as an advantage for him? The Crime Syndicate claims that the Amazon is dead, but Trevor won’t accept that without finding her body as proof. Thus, his journey to find his former love forces him to do whatever it takes to get the answers he’s looking for.

Meanwhile, in the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE, learn more about the individual members of the Crime Syndicate. Next week’s JUSTICE LEAGUE #24 explores the origin of Ultraman (head over to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER for an exclusive sneak peek at the issue!), while November’s issue #25 takes on a very twisted take on the legend of Batman in the form of Owlman’s story. And in issue #26, you’ll find out just what drives The Grid. It has a very specific purpose by aligning itself with the Crime Syndicate, but that doesn’t mean that their agendas exactly sync up. So what happens to their relationship once they’ve both achieved what they’re using one another for?

In the gallery above, take a sneak peek at some interior art from FOREVER EVIL #3, FOREVER EVIL: A.R.G.U.S. #1, and JUSTICE LEAGUE #25 and #26.

Have a great weekend!
