Justice League Family

A thread of great change runs through the Justice League heroes: a new League is built upon secret identities (even from each other), but an old and evolved enemy will use these secrets to try and overthrow the world. For the supernatural heroes of Justice League Dark, the very fabric of reality has shifted, and heroes are being hunted.

For Flash, Shazam, and the Teen Titans, it all begins when the four Riders of the Apocalypse unleash hell in a battle at Titans Academy, Barry Allen is cut off from the Speed Force, a Famine-controlled Wally West may be beyond saving, and Billy Batson makes a deal with the devil that will change Shazam forever. Off-world, John Stewart and the remaining Green Lanterns are stranded in the shadow of a dead power battery; Jackson Hyde and Andy Curry are separated across the galaxy; and Amanda Waller executes her ultimate plan with a new but terrifyingly familiar Suicide Squad on Earth-3.

At the end of time, Swamp Thing reveals its true intention, ruling supreme until a remnant of humanity launches a rebellion, and Black Adam looks to the past as the only way to save the future of the Multiverse.

The key to the mystery lies in the past, when the intergalactic confederation decided to organize the genocide of the Tonn Shärs, an alien species ​​whose temporal powers are far too powerful for the taste of other races. Only 88 Tonn Shärs, ​​including the captain of the Infinity 8, were kept alive and under the yoke of the Confederation. In the 30 years since this massacre, the 88 surviving Tonn Shärs pretended to be obedient, but patiently waited for revenge.

In this eighth and final reboot, the hour for vengeance has come. The seven previous temporal reboots allowed the captain to drop his mask: caught in a crisis of violence, he puts to death all the previous space liner agents… except for one: Lieutenant Reffo is saved by the time-traveling robot, Hal. Revived by their robot technology, Reffo develops a plan to prevent the captain from destroying the Confederation, by creating an army of the dead, raised from the necropolis itself. This plan will require the six previously-assigned agents: officer Yoko Keren, the impulsive Stella Moonkicker, the marshall Emma O’Mara, Patty Stardust, Ann Ninurta, Leïla Sherad, and even little Douglas. A crack team for a final conflict!
