Justice League – No Justice | Comics

Dark Nights: Metal has transformed the universe and awakens Godlike beings of destruction for Justice League to stop!

In space, the Green Lantern Corps has assembled all of their members, standing rallied together as they all look into a cosmic threat that can destroy everything. After the Justice League and rest of heroes took a stand against the creatures of Dark Multiverse, the aftermath of that fight left a crack in the Source Wall and the Universe is now broken.

Back on Earth, heroes and vigilantes are being attacked by an enemy force that overwhelms them and director Amanda Waller of Suicide Squad decides to initiate Protocol XI. The Justice League has been fighting Brainiac in Metropolis, who have them on his ropes. Superman somehow manages to get free and charge at his arch-enemy.

Instead of fighting Man of Steel, Vril Dox shows him a dystopian future where Earth has fallen to his rule and teams like Task Force X, The Titans and Teen Titans simply fails to stand against him while other League members get free. He tells Kal-El that he is not here to invade Earth but for the heroes and then all other heroes vanishes with a BOOM!

Beast Boy, Harley Quinn, Starfire and Zatanna wakes up inside a room inside Brainiac's Skull Ship shortly after they were abducted and now all of them are wearing different outfits. Harley finds a way out of the quarter and Damian Wayne was throwing his tantrum at Doctor Fate about finding the Coluan only to discover him standing behind.

Robin is baffled to see his father and his friends standing along with the biggest bad guy in the Universe, which even upsets Koriand'r. Realizing the growing tension in the room, Vril Dox clarifies his intention of seeking their help by holding onto Diana's Lasso of Truth.

He then warns them about four powerful cosmic Gods, Omega Titans who used to plant seeds of cosmic energy in many different worlds. Now that the Source Wall is broken, they came to Colu, the home planet of Brainiac and are about to consume it. He suggests them to group up in four teams, each embodying the energy of Omega Titan.

Throwing abducted heroes, anti-heroes and villains in the mix seem to be difficult as they are unwilling to work with each other as a team because of their past history. However, Brainiac stopped them for now by reminding the bigger issue at hand.

Batman, Beast Boy, Deathstroke, Lex Luthor and Lobo forms Team Entropy while Team Mystery consists of Martian Manhunter, Sinestro, Starfire, Starro and Superman. Atom, Cyborg, Flash, Harley Quinn and Robin assembled Team Wisdom and Team Wonder is founded by Doctor Fate, Etrigan, Raven, Wonder Woman and Zatanna.

Meanwhile, Amanda Waller assembled Task Force XI with the most powerful psychics in the world to hack the brain of the Coluan conqueror. Upon reaching Colu, they see the destroyer of worlds standing tall on the planet and ready to consume it. Vril Dox assumes command and reminding them if they cannot stop the titan here, it will attack Earth next.

Before he could guide them with his plan, he feels excruciating pain in his brain as Waller's telepaths have breached it and then it explodes, leaving his assembled crew to fight alone. The inhabitants of Colu thought them to be minions sent by Brainiac and faced by protocol droids before finding the Tree of Wisdom the titan came after.

Batman suggests that four teams should go after four energy trees and reform them but the dilemma of leadership strikes again until Luthor came to voice his reason and convinced everyone to follow Brainiac's original plan to save two worlds. The Trinity and other League members agreed to this as well except Damian Wayne.

Back on Earth, Waller heads to the Arctic Circle where she is confronted by Green Arrow, who is looking for his friends in the Justice League. She reveals what Vril Dox intended and how he has put Earth next on the menu for ancient Space Gods to devour after blackmailing everyone into cooperating with him to save his own planet.

Since there is no one else left to fight because Brainiac has put the remaining members from the main four teams into stasis, Oliver Queen offers to help Waller to save the world. Together, these unlikely allies team up to dig up Earth's dormant cosmic seed.

In Colu, all four teams struggle to power up the energy trees and fights their way through various obstacles to eventually come face to face with Brainiac 2.0. In the mean time, Amanda Waller realizes by killing Vril Dox, she has doomed Earth as he had some sort of fail-safe hidden within the seed and all the can do now is pray to God.

Superman – Doomed | Comics

As Superman started dating Wonder Woman now (The Villain's Journey), the media has already dubbed them as the “Power Couple” of the world. Following their recent battle with Kryptonian despot Dru-Zod and his follower Faora that ended up in a massive nuclear blast, both of them head off to heal themselves and a mysterious being of unimaginable brute force unleashes its nonsensical murdering rampage by killing whomever it faces in somewhere else.

Since its kill count is growing rapidly and anyone sent to the zone is dying from radiation exposure it exerts, the military calls up for Superman's help. Meanwhile, reporter Lois Lane goes to Smallville for investigating a case of citizens falling into a sudden coma like state. The Justice League finds out that the murderous being known as Doomsday is actually seeking Superman and Lex Luthor suggests he can save the planet by taking the monster along with him out of the world.

Superman – Doomed | Comics

Agreeing to this, Superman faces Doomsday in a deadly battle for one last time where he eventually kills him using sheer force. However, in doing so by ripping the creature in half, he also absorbs all of the exposure of toxic radiation by inhaling it all that the beast had released upon dying and he then slowly started to change like a Doomsday-like being. Not only he changed in the outside, Clark has totally lost his mild-mannered attitude and becomes more and more aggressive.

Worried for Clark’s well being and a sudden change of behavior, Diana sought their mutual friend Batman out for help and together, they visit the Phantom Zone for answers. Seeing his grotesque appearance and growing bestial nature, Superman surrenders himself to the authorities but even they deemed it impossible to contain him at one point when he becomes the "SuperDoom" creature. A recent attack from Metallo renders him weak, so Wonder Woman took him to outer space to figure a way out.

As Superman turns into a hulking being resembled to Doomsday, his cousin and newest Red Lantern member Supergirl and close friend Steel also came for aid while Brainiac keeps playing with the situation from behind the scene like a mastermind. When he finally shows up with Cyborg Superman and his armada to invade Earth, it appears that he has been controlling Lois Lane all along.
