Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Maxwell Lord is going to be the bad guy in Justice League. Since EW hasn’t posted this article on their website, I managed to find a neat summary on CBM.
The plot is starting to sound more-and-more like The OMAC Project and Sacrifice… mostly because it is heavily based off it. Maxwell Lord, OMACs, and Brother Eye – Brother Eye was originally reported as “Red Eye” but that appears to be a goof in what was leaked. Aquaman is also confirmed in the bios that EW gave:
Superman – A.k.a. Clark Kent, news reporter. The morally upstanding Man of Steel battles Batman and has more to worry about than kryptonite.
Wonder Woman – A.k.a. Diana of Amazonian princess. Revered by the other supers for her beauty and ass-kicking abilities.
The Martian Manhunter – A.k.a. J’onn J’onzz, detective. His power to read minds comes in handy as the villain engages in some nifty mind control.
Green Lantern – A.k.a. John Stewart, architect. Designed the Hall of Justice. His emerald power ring shoots beams of energy.
Batman – A.k.a. Bruce Wayne. The most human in the bunch is mistrustful of others, which leads to quite a few problems for the clan.
Flash – A.k.a. Barry Allen, cop. The most enthusiastic superhero, Flash is happy just to be included, but his ravenous appetite leads to trouble.
Aquaman – A.k.a. Arthur, the Atlantean King. Not a fan of humans, Aquaman is more interested in helping his fellow heroes than lending a hand to land dwellers.
The choice of Barry Allen is interesting, considering that Wally West is what most people are used to and he is the current Flash. But whatever. I can’t wait for Superman to go nuts.
