COMICS: Catwoman's "Death" Explained In JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #5 Preview?

At the conclusion of Justice League of America #4, it appeared as if the end had finally come for Catwoman as she was shot and killed by the Secret Society. However, the following preview of issue #5 shows that there may be more to her "death" than meets the eye...

Reeling from the traumatic death following issue #4’s cliffhanger, the “world’s most dangerous team” discovers what the Secret Society is ultimately after—and who they are. But can Steve Trevor get this uncontrollable team under control before it’s too late? Plus, a revelation about Stargirl leaves one of her team members out for blood.

She's a Red Lantern?

"Spoiler Alert"?! Dude, it says right in the headline that it's going to explain a major plot point. If you read it and get upset, that's your own fault.
alucard365 - 6/25/2013, 5:07 PM
Who's the guy in the purple suit?
r4dagast - 6/25/2013, 5:12 PM
Nice and spoilery title
unknownfacts - 6/25/2013, 5:13 PM
Really did no one suspect it wouldn't be the martian in disguise?Talk about foreshadowing.
TheDude - 6/25/2013, 5:22 PM
Really interested in what's gonna happen with dr.light, he in the background of that trinity war pic fighting madam Xanadu. And who the hell is this pale MFer in the bowler.
LEVITIKUZ - 6/25/2013, 5:29 PM
Did as really think she was dead? She has her own series and is suppose to show up in a Batman & Robin. Of course it's Martian Manhunter.
JohnnyCloud - 6/25/2013, 5:38 PM
Oh, GRIF, you try so hard...
You take the time to read all these threads and then pretend you don't give a frick.

If she really had been killed, it would have been at the finale of a more epic storyline. BoatEggs, don't you need parental permission to be on this website?
ComicBookGoth - 6/25/2013, 6:00 PM
man, Iron Fist has Really changed since his chat with the ancient one.
SnapperCarr - 6/25/2013, 6:02 PM
Woo Martian Manhunter!
Mego - 6/25/2013, 6:12 PM
So how did the Joker get his face back? And does he know Batman's ID? I havent been reading Big 2 comics for awhile.
campblood - 6/25/2013, 6:35 PM
joker has is face back?
Dragonpiece - 6/25/2013, 6:41 PM
That isn't Joker you dumb asses.
Mego - 6/25/2013, 6:47 PM
Was it also Jonzz who screwed Batman as Catwoman on a rooftop?
Since we now know he gets his kicks running around as Catwoman that become a possibility.

Maybe Catwoman is a character created by Jonzz so he can cross dress and screw Batman. Maybe in the New 52 there is no real Catwoman. Just Jonzz being a tranny.
Crescendo - 6/25/2013, 6:48 PM
@ComicBookGoth LOL! Good one. Art looks top notch and the story seems solid.
TheDude - 6/25/2013, 6:49 PM
I like this theory!
russburlingame - 6/25/2013, 6:58 PM
My money is on the Outsider for the guy in the purple suit. I've been wondering when he would show up since Flashpoint, and the "hehe, yes, I know where Batman lives" would fit his backstory.

cheap deaths are a rarity these days.... umm, no.
DCfan89 - 6/25/2013, 7:37 PM
of course its the martian
MightyZeus - 6/25/2013, 7:42 PM
Green Arrow for the win.
Battabing - 6/25/2013, 8:17 PM

I completely forgot about the Martian Manhunter!
seantwakafilmyguy - 6/25/2013, 9:22 PM
If any of you read the last two issues at all you would realize how stupid it is thinking Catwoman is actually Martian Manhunter.

And if it turns out they did swap positions between panels, then that would just confirm to me this line is being written by idiots.
Geektality - 6/25/2013, 9:30 PM
I think that this was Catwoman's way out. She never WANTED to be anyone's chew toy. This allows her to go back to Gotham and do what she loves most (Batman?). It allows her to go back to being the best master thief in Gotham.
Shaggy - 6/25/2013, 10:03 PM
didn't expect that

Why do they bother killing characters anymore? Dead...not dead or back from the dead...... Doesn't that crap ever get old???
JeighJeigh - 6/26/2013, 3:14 AM
Not a fan of that artwork. Put David Finch back on the interior please :)
wcwpoet - 6/26/2013, 6:26 AM
Why does Dr. Ivo look like the Joker? And so it was Martian Manhunter.
SUPERSHADOWBAT - 6/26/2013, 8:43 AM
It has to be MM. I wonder when he changes into Catwoman, if he looks under the costume... Hmmm.?
SuperiorMrGod - 6/26/2013, 11:20 AM
LOL To true, y'know we have a girl GL during trinity war. [frick]ing ridiculous, that makes the total amount of earth GL's 6.
ANIMUS84 - 6/26/2013, 10:59 PM
Damn, I forgot to care about this.
rbfn04 - 6/26/2013, 11:40 PM
@Mrgod you know Kyle is not a GL, right?
kemuael - 6/27/2013, 2:10 AM
