The United Planets is a perfect, beautiful idea…that completely flies in the face of everything the barbaric Mongul has been fighting for his entire life. Mongol will destroy the United Planets and Superman with it. And he said something about using Earth as his toilet. Which doesn’t sound very nice. The return of one of Superman’s biggest and baddest villains…bigger and badder than ever!

The “United” Planets?

Not if Mongul has anything to say about it.

Mongul is definitely not a fan, and he’s got every intention of letting the galaxy know it. This is, without a doubt, a case of “my way or the highway,” and if anyone’s gonna unite, it’ll be under him, period.
