Who's Who in the Multiverse-Spanning Justice League Incarnate

Who's Who in the Multiverse-Spanning Justice League...

By DC Tuesday, November 30th, 2021

There’s a new Justice League in town—and by “town,” we mean heroes united from across the Multiverse in an effort to save all of existence.

If you read the Infinite Frontier miniseries—or The Multiversity before it—you already know Justice League Incarnate, a team of heroes from DC’s multiple Earths headlined by Calvin Ellis, the Superman of Earth-23. In the five-issue Justice League Incarnate series from writers Joshua Williamson and Dennis Culver and artists including Andrei Bressan, Brandon Peterson and Tom Derenick, the team is reeling from a devastating defeat at the hands of the one true Darkseid and joined by all-new hero Doctor Multiverse in a last-ditch effort to stop the end of every possible universe.

Those are some pretty high stakes, but luckily series co-writer Dennis Culver has opened up his files and provided Who’s Who-style biographies of each of the Justice League Incarnate team members, just in time for issue #1, in stores this week.

Cosmic tracking and teleportation: Once Dr. Multiverse has interacted with someone or something, she can locate it anywhere in the Multiverse and transport to it.

Energy manipulation: She can tap into and control the ambient energy that exists between worlds and use it as concussive blasts and shields.
