Two eras of DC’s greatest superheroes will team up to face a “great darkness” in a new miniseries that begins in January.
Brian Michael Bendis and Scott Godlewski will bring together the Justice League and the Legion of Super-Heroes — two teams Bendis is very familiar with — in Justice League vs. Legion of Super-Heroes. But “vs.”? I thought they were teaming up?
The story involves “The Great Darkness,” according to DC, which seems to suggest this might have a tie to what I consider the greatest Legion of Super-Heroes story of all time, “The Great Darkness Saga.” So maybe can we expect an appearance by Darkseid as well.
Here’s the description:
One thousand years in the future, a Legion of Super-Heroes comes together to dedicate their lives to recapturing the great age of heroes of the 21st century. When the heroes discover that reality is falling to a great darkness in both times simultaneously, the Justice League and the Legion of Super-Heroes must team up to stop it all. But what is the connection between the secrets of the new Gold Lanterns and the coming of the Great Darkness?
“Scott and I have done Young Justice and Justice League together and I have enjoyed every single page we’ve made,” Bendis said in his newsletter. “He was my number one choice for this very special project.” Bendis added that the new miniseries will reveal more about the Gold Lanterns and teased that this “isn’t even close to the coolest Legion news I’m sitting on.”
The first issue arrives Jan. 11.
