In the new issue of Justice League 42 written by Geoff Johns and art by Jason Fabok we get part 2 of "The Darkseid War" where the Justice League get caught in a war between "the world killer" Anti-Monitor and Darkseid the worst of the worst bad guys in the DC universe. Like most big events in the DC universe the war ends up on earth so of course our heroes have to jump in.
Geoff Johns has become one of my favorite writers in comics and his work on this book keeps me coming back for more.What makes this issue so special is when the "new god" Metron shows up in his chair.Metron observes what goes on in the universe and his chair has the answers to everything.The Justice League try to get answers from him about Darkseid and the Anti-Monitor but he refuses so Batman being Batman throws him off the chair and jumps on.Batman gains Metron's powers and his 1st question is "Who killed my parents? " the chair tells him Joe Chill who all fanboys and fangirls known already then he ask the ultimate question....."Whats the Joker's true name".
As readers we don't see the answer just Batman's reaction from it...."No! that's not possible!"
So now Geoff Johns has screwed with our minds! What name did the chair say because it seems to be someone Batman knows. So unless Mr Johns and DC comics decide to reveal the answer this just adds to the Joker's "mythology".
Then there's the last page a full page spread of Batman sitting in the chair proclaiming "Im a God now!"....oh oh.
Until next time my friends stay geeky and hungry.
