Justice League #48

(By Geoff Johns, Jason Fabok, and Brad Anderson)

The Justice League were caught in the middle of a war between Darkseid and the Anti-Monitor. The Anti-Monitor already destroyed Earths from other dimensions so the League has no choice but to team up with the Crime Syndicate from Earth-3. As the fight begins, Hal Jordan manages to call in some more back up.

You would think the Justice League, the Crime Syndicate, and now the Green Lantern Corps would be enough to deal with Anti-Monitor. Unfortunately that isn't the case. Looks like some replacement Lanterns will soon be needed.

Wonder Woman and Superwoman attack next. Anti-Monitor tosses them aside. Superman and Ultraman come in next. Superman has recently been changed into a New God and Ultraman is Superman's [evil] counterpart from Earth-3.

Ultraman isn't the most stable guy around. Even though the Syndicate has teamed up with the League, he decides he should take on Anti-Monitor by himself and knocks Superman out of the way.

Apparently Ultraman forgot Anit-Monitor destroyed his entire world. The rest of the battle doesn't go too well for him.

Spawn #261

(By Todd McFarlane, Erik Larsen, and FCO Plascencia)

Spawn has gone to Hell. Satan has offered Al Simmons a deal. If he gives up his costume, he'll let let him leave with his wife, Wanda. Spawn doesn't take the deal and they begin to fight. After fleeing to another part of Hell, Spawn and Wanda are soon discovered. Satan begins by growing large and smashes Spawn completely.

Lifting his hand, Satan is surprised to discover Spawn is not there. Spawn burrowed himself into Satan's arm.

Spawn has reached his limit. He's tired of dealing with Satan and his threats. He knows he possibly has the upper hand and taunts Satan to go ahead and try to take the costume. He knows Satan isn't able to otherwise he would have done so already.

Spawn continues to cut loose on Satan's agents. It turns out Satan still has another trick up his sleeve. He makes another offer to Spawn. He might not be able to resist this offer.

Karnak #2

(By Warren Ellis, Gerardo Zaffino, Antonio Fuso, and Dan Brown)

Karnak is on a mission to retrieve an Inhuman child who was taken by a dark science organization. With the ability to see the flaws and weakness in everything, he easily takes on a Berlin splinter cell in order to get to the child.

Karnak has seen a lot in his life. He's even died and come back to the land of the living. Despite the large number of guards, he remains calm and exploits their weaknesses to get past them.

It's not just about punching or kicking for Karnak. He can also use the destruction of his surroundings as projectile weapons against his foes.

After a countless number of guards and several pages of action, he finally comes face to face with the leader of this cell. Rather than simply give up the child, he begins to attack Karnak. Karnak can easily see where to stomp his foot on the floor in order to send a piece of concrete flying at his foe's face.

After getting the answers (or lack of answers) he needs, you should see what happens when applies just the right amount of pressure to the piece of shrapnel and the affect it has the priest's skull. We'd show you, but that's all the time we have for this week.
