COMICS: Are The JUSTICE LEAGUE(s) Really Dead? JLA Writer Matt Kindt Reveals All
Matt Kindt and Doug Mahnke's upcoming Justice League of America arc will only feature Martian Manhunter and Stargirl, but the writer may have let slip exactly what has happened to the three Justice League teams. Did The Crime Syndicate really kill them? Well...
"I'm doing the next six issues, up until Jeff [Lemire] takes over [and the title becomes Justice League Canada]," Matt Kindt told Newsarama about his upcoming Justice League of America run which will see him put the spotlight on Martian Manhunter and Stargirl during the events of Forever Evil. "They're traveling across the country and the world has ended. In a way, it's like a post-apocalypse with all the villains having taken over. And then these two characters are running across the world trying to make things better and save the day and figure out what happened. So yeah, instead of being a big team book, it's going to be showing the aftermath [of Trinity War] then showing what happened to the rest of the [Justice League] team[s]. And then how these two escaped, and how they have to work together." Revealing that neither character will be fully powered as they make their way across America, Kindt confirmed that they are both on the DCU Earth and said, "The first issue and a half is them sort of breaking out of this crazy prison that they're in. And they have to figure out what they're in, why they're in it, and how to get out. So that happens." Whether that means the rest of the Justice League's are also in that prison remains to be seen, but despite The Crime Syndicate's claim that they've killed the Justice League, it's obvious now that they may instead just be held captive...either on this prison or Earth-3!
