This Just Happened: Steve Trevor... The Chosen One!

By Nicole Valdez Friday, May 27th, 2016

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t read JUSTICE LEAGUE #50 yet and don’t want to know what happens next, stop reading this post now (spoilers ahead!)

This week’s issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE brings the epic conclusion of “The Darkseid War” from writer Geoff Johns and artist Jason Fabok, with revelations that will echo through DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1, and beyond!

Grail, daughter of Myrina of Themyscira and Darkseid, has killed her father and taken the power of the Anti-Life. Now with her father destroyed, Grail has become intoxicated with power and aims to rid the world of the Justice League. Following a prediction saying that the first man who touched foot on Themyscira is the Chosen One, Grail infused Steve Trevor with the Anti-Life. 

Steve Trevor has been turned into a weapon to unleash upon the JL members, but he resists the controls and begs Diana to stop him. But Grail isn't done yet. She has plans to unleash another evil - an evil she can control! Using an ancient Amazonian ritual, she resurrects Darkseid--to be controlled by her! Using a child with the ability to steal God–like powers, she turns the tide of the epic Darkseid War in her favor. She then steals the Anti-Life back out of Steve Trevor, leaving him as a casualty of the battlefield. 

Who is this child? And why did she believe Steve Trevor was the Chosen One? Will Grail defeat the Justice League? You're going to have to read JUSTICE LEAGUE #50 to find out! 

But this wouldn't be a This Just Happened without an amazing moment that we don't want you to miss! With her dying breath, Myrina tells Wonder Woman a secret about Themyscira: 

Did Myrina tell Wonder Woman the truth? Did a male child touch foot on Themyscira the day Wonder Woman was born? Does Diana have a twin?

Find out more from writer Geoff Johns and artists Jason Fabok, Brad Anderson (colors), and Rob Leigh (letters) by reading JUSTICE LEAGUE #50!

And stay tuned for WONDER WOMAN: REBIRTH #1 and WONDER WOMAN #1 in June as Wonder Woman searches for the truth… and the lies.
