Super Sons – Parent Trap | Comics

Robin’s past finally revealed to Superboy in a meeting with Talia al Ghul, before Kid Amazo returns to tear the Super Sons apart.

When his dad Superman leaves for a Justice League-level emergency and reporter mom Lois Lane goes Metropolis to investigate on an article for Daily Planet, young superhero Jon Kent is left behind with Damian Wayne, who lands on the school ground of West-Reeve by their trusted family butler Alfred Pennyworth.

Unbeknownst to Damian, his mother Talia al Ghul was secretly keeping an eye on him from nearby and meets him during lunch period only to freak out his friend Superboy by holding her own son with a sword on his throat. She asks him to come with her but Robin declines her offer after freeing himself.

The Super Sons heads to Gotham City and encounters members from League of Assassins before finding out that Talia was hired to kill Lois. Jon and Damian then start scouring through the city to find their mothers to stop one from killing the other.

The shot fired by Talia from a rooftop was timely deflected by Jon while Robin confronts his mother about this contract she took and engages her. Jon would come across Lois on street after taking down a few of the ninjas and Damian would force his mother to leave town after besting her in combat.

Two researchers working at LexCorp walks into a room for checking on inventory before Lex Luthor arrives only to discover that the synthetic suit made of Amazo Virus is missing from containment and as the Super Sons were planning for their patrolling schedule for the night on Fortress of Attitude, Kid Amazo suddenly breaks in.

Sending Robin to look for rebreathers, Superboy tackles their former enemy until the villain is hit by an escape pod of theirs. Together, they made an attempt to reach out to surface for seeking help but Jon is grabbed by the leg at the last minute and pulled underwater.

Before Damian could ran out of air, Cyborg came out of nowhere at his rescue and band together looking for Kid Amazo instead of taking him back home. An unconscious Jon is dragged by the suit to an oil rig and discloses how it escaped using Reggie Meyer.

Since the boy was in a weakened condition when bonded, there are high chances of him being dead right now, because his powers were burned out and now it needs an external energy source to feed on. To absorb organic power from new source, he has acquired Batman, Flash, Superman and Wonder Woman.

After draining the entire League, the suit wanted Jon as a host who could survive and filter it to power the armor. Though resistant, he couldn't free his father and friends or even last too long before help could arrive but when it did, he immediately freed himself from captivity.

Since the suit has tapped into the power of Flash, it started to give even Cyborg a hard time. With no chance to seemingly win against the villain, Robin eventually came up with a plan which involves Victor Stone losing to Kid Amazo as a part of gamble he planned.

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.

Dark Nights – Metal – The Resistance

A major crossover event that has been in the works ever since "Court of the Owls" at the dawn of The New 52 and even connects back to post-Flashpoint event "Final Crisis", "Dark Nights – Metal" is a masterpiece story created by writer Scott Snyder (All-Star Batman – Ends of the Earth, Flashpoint – Project Superman) and artist Greg Capullo (Haunt, Spawn).

These two have worked up the core six-issue limited series that have a number of related tie-in issues that comes in "The Road to Metal", "Dark Knights Rising" and "The Resistance" books to fill the necessary gaps to make things matter by a few other.

The Bat Behind The Bat

Writers James Tynion IV (Detective Comics – Rise of the Batmen, Detective Comics – The Victim Syndicate) and Tim Seeley (Batman – Night of the Monster Men, Nightwing – Better Than Batman) along with various other creators have contributed to the plot.

Artists Andy Kubert (Origin, Ultimate Iron Man), Ethan Van Sciver (The Flash – Rebirth, Green Lantern – Rebirth), Jim Lee (Batman – Hush, Superman – For Tomorrow), John Romita Jr. (Superman – Before Truth, Superman – The Men of Tomorrow) and Tyler Kirkham (The Darkness, Tomb Raider) have also take part in illustrating the arc for readers.

Ever since DC Rebirth, DC Comics has never done a crossover this big and it was actually a scheme to re-introduce many new characters and teams into play. References of classic sagas were mentioned and elements were used to build a new tomorrow. Some of the noteworthy appearances were made by Black Adam, Black Manta, Clayface, Deathstroke, Doctor Fate, Nightwing, Robin, Steel, Suicide Squad, Teen Titans and Vandal Savage.

A link to "Death of The Family" and "Endgame" arc was drawn to detailing the origin of Metal and how it is related to Batman. We are treated with an epic team-up during climax that was most unexpected and it even rivals the awesomeness of the World's Finest duo.
