I really loved the idea of the different types of mother boxes what with making the one (I forget who owned it) into a knife.

Amazing. Also Steppenwolf is alive? Maybe Darkseid resurrected him or he was able to reincarnate himself hence the longer beard.

I love the religious aspects of Darkseid's society. Religious power is one of the most powerful forces known to man, which i think is what that last page really echoes with the Steppenwolf guy starting to ask questions, only to be shut down by Skeletor's zealousy.

Probably something like that, I imagine it's much much harder to kill any of Darkseid's soldiers then other beings.

He's probably the perfect artist for this story.

I love the art and writing of this book Jason Fabok and Geoff Johns should write a Fourth World book even if its just 6 issues. Darkseid looks so awesome and love Steppenwolf's beard. I hope one day we see New Gods vs Old Gods (Olympians, titans, Egyptian gods, Norse gods etc.)

New Gods are immortal, no? They can die, but they'll be revived.

This is shaping up to be the best arc on New 52 JL. Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok are Jedi Masters!

I predict that Mr. Miracle will play a very pivotal role in this and at the conclusion, Geoff Johns will be writing a Mr. Miracle ongoing monthly series.

@tensor: This is just a hypothesis, not even that really, but what if it is someone else disguised as Steppenwolf? That could explain why he is questioning Darksied and asking so many questions. Also, I don't believe anyone has heard of Steppenwolf dying on Earth on Apokolips.

@_andy_can: what does that even mean? New Genesis is not involved in tbe conflic yet, its not certain if they will. Going by your logic, where is Highfather, where is Lightray, where is Lady Shadowfall, where are the rest of Highfather's inner circle

@machomustachio: There is only one Steppenwolf; The New Gods can transverse through dimensions. They don't belong to any of the 52 universes; Apokalips and New Genisis exist outside of the multiverse.

New Gods are immortal--they can die, but they'll be reborn if they're not killed by Raidon.

Lame issue,nothing happens beyond recapping what already happened and teasing what we already know. And Geoff we know you've found appreciation for Wonder Woman but do some goddamn research on Metron too before you use the character,he's already butchering the New Gods. The whole arc is lame,the premise is just 2 cosmic beings punching each other while Johns fanboys cheer on as if they're reading a masterpiece.

Read it.

I felt unsatisfied. Nothing happens that wasn't revealed in the solicits so there wasn't anything exciting. And there was so much recapping. It isn't necessary considering this is just issue 2.

Anyway great art but this wasn't worth one months wait :P

@dogsoldier88: It was dumb,there no journey or arc,he just becomes one because Hal told Diana Metron was nothing without the chair so she kicked him out and Batman took his place. So much for Godhood and omniscience.

Johns is a hack,thank God for Bryan Hitch and Bruce Timm that we can turn to them for actually good JLA material. This whole arc is just taking threads Morrison introduced in JLA and FC.

@entropy_aegis: What are you complaining about? Darkseid Wars isn't about how Batman becomes a New God.This arch is centered on Wonder Woman and Mister Miracle, that's what Johns promised us, that what we got in this issue.

It's a JL book not Diana and Mr Miracle, the latter is not even a JL member. But regardless I dont care who the book centers around,that's Johns style,I dont like it but I've learned to live with it. A development as big as Metron getting replaced(doesn't matter who replaces him) deserves some more depth and substance. All I saw was "lol lets kick him off the chair,easy peasy muahahaha I'm a God" that was some of the most asinine writing I've ever seen.

@entropy_aegis: Metron was never written to my knowledge as a powerful being or a fighter. And an issue #40 he was shown to get knock off the chair by Darkseid daughter. So I don't know why would they build up a story of Metron losing the chair when it wasn't his to begin with since Anti-monitor had it before him.

Precisely,Johns has no clue what he's doing, why would AM have Metron's chair? and Darkseid's lame daughter? someone needs to geoffcon this shit fast.

They didn't have to build up a story of Metron losing his chair,but a God of knowledge and intelligence should have atleast enough sense to prevent himself from being de seated.

The only thing that is good about it is the art, I mean seriously the way Grail defeated the justice league in issue 1 made them look like bunch of newbies that fought for the first time. Dont get me started on the plot hole of Grail hurting Metron while Anti-Monitor couldnt do it then this dethroning of Metron.......its like the guy has no personal shields

I thought Bruce finding out Joker's identity was an awesome setup for a future story. The fact that he was startled by the revelation already tells you that it isn't a run-of-the-mill criminal, but rather someone with whom he's likely acquainted at present or in the past. This piece of information is too awesome to reveal to the fans in this issue, and will assuredly play out in some other story arc.

Dont even get me started on Grail's Omega Beams destroying Diana's bracelets but Darkseid's getting casually deflected and Myrina's ridiculous motivation and master plan.
