We have been getting some questions on the Justice League Beyond verse re Superman and Wonder Woman so thought I’d do a brief summary from what little spoilers I could find.
Wonder Woman left her world to go hook up with another version of Batman. A Justice Lord Batman. Not the Bruce from the actual cartoon that she had her flirtation with. She fell in love with this guy and stayed with him to fight the Justice Lords. I find that weird to be honest. Does that count if the one you were shipping her with is not the version she hooks up with? He’s not even the same guy. Oh well, I guess any Batman will do. Diana and Lord Bats fight the Justice Lords. Justice Lord SM and WW have hooked up but they eeevil while Lord Bats is sooo good and heroic. Justice Lord Wonder Woman kills Diana’s Lord Batman and Diana kills her in turn for it. Diana then marries Lord Superman to preserve peace and unite to fight the forces of Brainiac.
"You married him?"
Got to say Superman’s expression is hilarious behind old Bruce.
But it seems Diana has come back to look for her son. Yep. She and Lord Superman had a son. Not the old fashion way, mind you. But via fusing their DNA in a lab. Unfortunately they lose their son when Brainiac kidnaps him.
Seems he was given over to Jax-ur, a Kryptonian criminal in the phantom zone, who names the boy, Zod.
It makes the first time the good Superman meets the little boy sort of significant,
"He chooses to stay with his blood."
Yeah, in a strange sort of way…little Zod did choose blood.
Now evil Lord Superman has also come back for his son and his wife and there is to be a big showdown.
Whew. Talk about soap opera and drama. But that’s the deal so far. Hope that helps for those who were a little confused as to what’s going on. Remember this is not our prime earth in the new 52. It’s an alternative earth and it’s years in the future. That’s why Bruce look so old. Because he is not meta like Clark and Diana and chances are if Lord Bats had survived he’d be old and creaky too. Still not even sure why Clark and Diana even have gray in their hair as well. Stress, maybe. With a name like Zod can the little fellow be trusted? Who knows. Those following this book feel free to let us know what happens next. We will reblog as well if we see anything interesting.
