Justice League’s “Doom Metal” Crossover Begins September 15!

DC has revealed November’s Justice League covers, giving more insight into Joshua Williamson’s upcoming five-issue Justice League “Doom Metal” story that ties directly in to DC’s ongoing Dark Nights: Death Metal event! Beginning in Justice League #53 on September 15, “Doom Metal” will feature the first appearance of Mindhunter, a new, twisted Dark Knight who is combined with Martian Manhunter, the first appearance of Omega Knight—a Frankenstein’s Monster version of the Omega Titans from Justice League: No Justice, the longtime-coming reunion of the Teen Titans: Nightwing, Cyborg, and Starfire, and more!

Nightwing has his memory back, and Cyborg and Starfire are back from the Ghost Sector, so look for deep cuts from the team’s past as they rally this Justice League towards Perpetua and the Legion of Doom!

Williamson’s Justice League for “Doom Metal” is Detective Chimp, Martian Manhunter, Hawkgirl, Nightwing, Cyborg, Starfire, and Lex Luthor. Take a look below at the size and scope of this character-driven tie-in to Dark Nights: Death Metal!

Justice League #53 kicks off “Doom Metal” part one of five—the Dark Nights: Death Metal tie-in that will directly impact the finale of that event! Nightwing’s on a mission to free the Legion of Doom from Perpetua’s clutches.  But to do so, he’ll need the help of none other than…Lex Luthor?! The surprises are only just beginning, as Nightwing, Lex, and a new Justice League must fight their way through an Earth twisted by the Dark Multiverse. Titans will be tested, hearts will be broken, and blood will be spilled!

Look. Life’s hard enough when you’re Ash. You’ve gotta go to work, pay the bills, fight demons, save the world from Hell, etc etc. But when some sorta weird-ass magic splits you into a woman, a demon, a skeleton, a dog and a sentient chainsaw… it’s enough to make a grown man cry.

(…Unless you’re Ash. In which case, you’re too cool to cry.)

Behold the wonderment by RYAN PARROTT (TMNT/Power Rangers) and JACOB EDGAR (James Bond)!
