This September 'Evil Is Relative'
Source: DC Blog / IGN
Geoff Johns revealed today that the Earth 3 Crime Syndicate of America will be the major villains behind the "Forever Evil" 7-issue mini-series beginning next month.
In a press release at the DC Blog, Johns states:
“What’s most surprising about Forever Evil isn’t its repercussions,” said Johns. “It’s that everything we thought we knew about the series is wrong. Up to this point, we’ve believed that the Secret Society of Super Villains has been in control, manipulating the Justice League and turning public opinion against them.”
The New52 version of the Crime Syndicate will be Ultraman, Owlman, Superwoman, Johnny Quick and Power Ring, plus new member, Deathstorm.
Johns describes Deathstorm as "a scientist who’s been merged with the dead body of his lab assistant. It’s given him a cold demeanor and a clammy touch. He’s essentially a mad Nazi scientist with Atomic Power at his hand."
Additional details are:
- Lex Luthor will lead his own super-team against the Crime Syndicate in "Forever Evil", with members that include Sinestro, Black Adam, Catwoman, Captain Cold and Batman, who somehow survives the "death" of all the heroes that sets up Forever Evil.
- Johns stated today that this Batman may not be Bruce Wayne.
- The Crime Syndicate have been behind the events that lead to the Trinity War.
- Some villains will join in on the Crime Syndicate's plan while other villains will fight against them.
JUSTICE LEAGUE #23, on sale August 28, will hold more surprises.
FOREVER EVIL #1 kicks off Villains Month on September 4th.
