The members of the Justice League have had a lot to deal with since the entire DC Rebirth initiative began, like seeing their beloved teammate Superman die, only to be replaced with an older, married lookalike who has a ten year-old son. On top of that, they’ve had to contend with two rookie members of the Green Lantern Corps who are a little wet behind the ears, and also that whole time travel adventure recently. When you’re the Earth’s greatest superheroes, you don’t really get much down time up in that Watchtower.
Now, in a special one-off story from writer Shea Fontana, the League’s troubles continue to get worse, as the team has to deal with a deadly virus brought on board by those newbie Green Lanterns, Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz. Not only is the League affected, but so are the visiting Lois Lane and Jonathan Kent, the new Superboy. With the entire team (minus Aquaman and the Flash) on board the Watchtower with a rampaging space virus and a ticking clock, which Leaguer will be able to save the day?You can check out our exclusive preview of the first five pages from Justice League #22, together with both variant covers down below in our gallery.
