Superman – The Men of Tomorrow | Comics

Around 25 years ago, a secret research facility named Ulysses Research Centre in Omaha had a critical hazardous leak that forced everybody on board to evacuate at once. Scientist couple Bridget and Peter Quinn were the ones who were researching on other worldly dimensions found themselves trapped inside and the base is set to self-destruct itself as a measure of containment.

Seeing no hope of surviving their fate, they decide to send their newborn child to the otherworldly Dimension Four, so that he could live. Currently, Superman was having a brawl with the monstrous ape Titano in Metropolis, while photographer Jimmy Olsen tries to get some good shots of the fight. Perry White called out Clark Kent to join the Daily Planet again as a reporter to help him run it.

Back home Clark tries to reach out to Wonder Woman and Batman to no avail. As he was passing a pretty boring evening, suddenly he rushes out in costume in response to a cry for help. He finds a huge spacecraft in the middle of the city that blasts him away while a hooded figure observes him from an unknown location.

An alien from the ship comes charging at him and nearly overpowered him until another powerful being busts into the scene from a portal to undertake the alien. They made a quick work of the being and the stranger named Ulysses is surprised to learn that he’s on earth as he believed he’s the Last Son of Earth, which he apparently is not anymore and he sure about to led Superman to exciting mysteries and some dimensional adventures.

Forever Evil | Comics

When a paradox of timeline is created by The Flash known as "Flashpoint" that changed the entire landscape of reality and the weakened barrier of the Multiverse allowed Darkseid of Apokolips to came to invade Earth with his Parademon army (Justice League – Origin), only to be halted by the super-heroes of the world, who later formed the Justice League. The impact of that battle created a rift in dimension barriers and The Outsider from Earth 3 managed to enter the reality of Prime Earth.

All of the above led to "Trinity War", which was jump-started by the mysterious Pandora in her attempt to open the Pandora's Box by Superman and the aftermath of which revealed the significance of all these happenings. There was a fight of the all three teams of the Justice Leagues regarding the fate of Pandora's Box, which led the Crime Syndicate consisting Atomica, Deathstorm, Grid, Johnny Quick, Owlman, Power Ring, Superwoman and Ultraman from Earth 3 to come to this world and take over.

After imprisoning the Justice League inside the Firestorm Matrix and then freeing all super-villains from their captivity in Iron Heights and Belle Reve Penitentiary, the Syndicate offered them to join their cause or perish otherwise. Upon denying and having doubt on their authenticity, a second-string villain Monocle was executed. They even managed to capture the vigilante hero Nightwing and revealed his secret identity to the world as Dick Grayson. At this shocking revelation, Batgirl and the rest of the members of Teen Titans are very surprised.

As Lex Luthor got out of prison recently, he was heading to LexCorp and meets Ultraman, whom he thought Superman at first, but he quickly dismisses the idea when he witnessed him grinding Kryptonite and snorting it. Ultraman also blocked the sun to create an eclipse and Luthor decides to stop them since there is no Justice League to do so. He wakes up his unfinished experimental Superman clone named Subject B-Zero to assist him in doing so while he suits up in his Warsuit.

Batman and Catwoman survived the initial onslaught of the Crime Syndicate and brought the remains of Victor Stone's body to S.T.A.R. Labs. Superwoman informs Ultraman about Owlman's plan to betray them, whereas she holds one more secret of her own. Eventually Luthor finds Black Adam, Black Manta, Captain Cold, Deathstroke and Sinestro to form his Injustice League to save the day from greater evil!

Justice League – The Grid | Comics

Someone hacked Justice League secret files while trying to frame Superman for murder and secret behind Pandora's Box is coming out.

An idea to recruit secondary members to their rank is proposed by Batman to his colleagues in Justice League. Since all of its founding members have their own priorities, they are looking for heroes who can dedicate their full-time to the team. Wonder Woman assumes that he has already discussed about it with Cyborg and they agree.

He showed them that he has created a database called "The Grid" to better respond to worldwide emergencies and super-human assistance. So, Black Canary, Black Lightning, Blue Devil, Element Woman, Firestorm, Goldrush, Nightwing, Platinum, Vixen and Zatanna were all called in to Justice League Watchtower for an initiation.

They all came and were getting to know each other until suddenly, Platinum go haywire and starts attacking everyone. With the combined effort of Rhonda Pineda AKA The Atom, Element Woman and Firestorm, she is finally neutralized. Cyborg reveals when they were busy fighting her, someone stole their secret files from Watchtower.

Back in Batcave, Alfred Pennyworth and Red Hood were mourning over the recent death of Damian Wayne. Suddenly, Jason is knocked out with a high-voltage shock and Alfred is thrown away by a stranger in a black bodysuit. Despite Alfred's warning, he enters deep inside the cave to open a secret vault and a box marked "S".

In Kahndaq, Superman and Wonder Woman go undercover to secure hostages held captive by a terrorist group named Sons of Adam. They saved the day but it was broadcasted worldwide, which prompts Batman to pay them an immediate visit to remind how the world sees them as a "Power Couple" and their public action matters a lot.

After revealing to them that he already knows for some time that they are dating, Batman suggests them to keep it under cover as the fact of two of Earth's most powerful being in a relationship might scare a lot of people. Then he breaks off the news of Batcave infiltration lately to steal a means to take down Man of Steel.

This gets Diana furious over Bruce but Clark talked her down saying he gave it to him for worst case scenario. In Watchtower, Despero came looking for Justice League but trashed down Atom, Element Woman and Firestorm. Was it not for the timely intervention of Martian Manhunter, these new recruits couldn't have survived.

Right after Cyborg detects that JL Watchtower is falling from the orbit and headed towards East Coast but Superman managed to catch it right before impact. J'onn J'onzz tells Atom not to tell anyone that he was here, leaving a knocked out Despero behind and a Kryptonite ring he was wearing all along starts giving Big Blue a hard time.

Madame Xanadu sees visions of a dystopian future in aftermath of a great war that is only defined by the word Trinity and deems it urgent to warn Justice League about it. Mysterious entity Pandora approaches Man of Steel to open Pandora's Box thinking he was the purest of hearts but it tries to corrupt him and she escapes.

He and his friends then rushes to Kahndaq to stop Shazam from trespassing there to spread ashes of Black Adam but it quickly sparked a fight between them that eventually escalates to a point where things get too ugly. Three Justice League teams go to war over confusion and misdirection created by a traitor from within.

Clash of Leagues

At the very beginning, many superheroes are assembled to be added into prestigious roster of Justice League but only three of them; The Atom, Element Woman and Firestorm made it.

Trinity War | Comics

In the prehistoric era of 8,000 B.C.E., Pandora found a golden skull in the woods, that would unleash the Seven Deadly Sins onto the world and as punishment, she was granted an eternal life. In modern age, she approaches Superman with the box in hopes to open it and relieve her of the curse, considering him to be purest of heart. Surprisingly, the box almost immediately tries to corrupt Superman and Pandora then quickly vanishes with the box.

Batman informs Clark that Shazam is entering the restricted borders of Kahndaq and they need to stop him before it's too late. When their confrontation turns into a fight between Superman and Shazam, Steve Trevor's Justice League of America arrives to the scene to escort Justice League out of Kahndaq. Both teams get into a fight and in a sudden moment of confusion, Superman lost his control and kills Doctor Light after he accidentally blasts off Wonder Woman upon losing control over his powers for unknown reasons.

This shocking development left everyone in awe and the Man of Steel then knocks off everyone around him. Superman then begs to be kept locked up and Col. Steve Trevor's team complies by taking him to A.R.G.U.S. While Cyborg and Martian Manhunter was analyzing Superman's autopsy to prove him clean, Batman pays him a visit. To uncover the secrets of Pandora's Box, Diana eventually approaches the smith-god Hephaestus and then finally recruits help from Justice League Dark, who was looking for their missing teammate Madame Xanadu.

When the mystery gets even more complicated, Phantom Stranger and The Question enter the scene to reveal the identity of the culprit responsible for all these chaos. Regarding the theory of what really made Superman gone berserk and Trevor's previous encounter with Pandora's Box finally made Batman lead a team of remaining heroes at his employ to stop Wonder Woman and it gets really intense inside the House of Mystery.

Constantine and Shazam go their own separate way out of the brawl of heroes to solve this mess by themselves. The Question busts out Superman off the A.R.G.U.S. facility to go after the evil telepath known as Doctor Psycho. While all of them were fighting each other, seemingly it was all planned out by The Outsider, who also kept Madame Xanadu captive and rallied the Secret Society of Super-Villains for his own nefarious end.

Hunt for Pandora's Box

Since the "Flashpoint" changed the entire DC Universe like never before, the world's greatest heroes found themselves in Prime Earth. When the Justice League prevented an invasion of Apokolips and battled Darkseid (Justice League – Origin), the barriers of dimensions are weakened and using that lead, the story progresses towards a very interesting turn. This very arc will lead path for another big-one titled "Forever Evil" up next, which will sow seeds for one of the biggest event from the monthly Justice League series of The New 52 titled "Darkseid War".
