Darkseid War is underway and today at San Diego Comic-Con in his One-on-One panel, it was announced that Geoff Johns has a little more planned for the story. Johns revealed he has some one-shots planned to focus on different characters in the story arc.

No Caption Provided

JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MEN is scheduled for October and will be a series of six one-shots that will explore the individual conflicts for the characters.

  • Batman – Armed with the godlike power of the Mobius Chair, the Dark Knight has taken on the role of Metreon and plans to use the infinite knowledge of this device to turn Gotham City into a completely crime-free zone!
  • Superman – Corrupted by the weird energies of Apokolips’ fire pits, Superman has been turned into an angry, violent brute. And only one man can possibly save him: Lex Luthor.
  • Green Lantern – Oa has been conquered and transformed into a Parademon factory and the Green Lantern Corps is no more! Only Hal Jordan remains to follow a distress call from the last active Lantern seen fighting on Oa: John Stewart
  • Lex Luthor – At last, Lex Luthor, the new ruler of Apokolips, can do what he never could accomplish on Earth: hold the fate of a world in his hands. But his one failure from the “Darkseid War” continues to keep him from the peace he craves – and only a crazed Superman can help him get it!
  • The Flash – The Flash takes on the role of death’s harbinger, the Black Racer. And the beneficiary of his first visit is Aquaman!
  • Shazam! – Instead of accessing the powers of the old gods, Billy Batson now commands the combined powers of the New Gods like Highfather, Mantis and others trapped within the Source Wall. And that’s power that no mortal should possess!

You may note that Wonder Woman is excluded. Geoff Johns has stated several times that Wonder Woman will be a "central figure in this storyline."

Awesome. Though the solicitations reveal a little to much about the fate of Darkseid and the New Gods.

Awesome. Loving Johns run on JL. Hope Manapaul is involved with this. Would be great to see him draw the Flash one shot with Johns.

All the one-shots have gotten my interests. However it still intrigues me to wonder what will happen to the rest of the team(Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Captain Cold, etc.)

Yes, in regards to how characters can appear in multiple comics and not have current stroylines affect them. Oa has been destroyed for quite a while.

Superman – Corrupted by the weird energies of Apokolips’ fire pits, Superman has been turned into an angry, violent brute.

^ How is this much different from regular NEW 52 Superman?

I always did kind of like the idea that the Fifth World would be our heroes ascending as new New Gods in a sense so this looks good. Kind of like Fourth World ascension corrupting our heroes. Cool to see them get Kirby costumes.

Also, does Oa get reborn?

Its a one shot. Many One-Shots are not canon (sometimes). I think these one shots aren't canon.

Where did you get that idea? It being a one shot doesn't automatically make it non-canon.

Shazam is an interesting twist. Let's see:

Steppenwolf?, Highfather, Avia?,Z?, Artemiz?, Mantis. Don't remember any new god with Z.

That is why I said "SOMETIMES. And yes most one-shots are non-canon.

I feel Cyborg should of got a one shot over Lex being a predating Leaguer.

I understand why Wonder Woman didn't get one if she didn't considering she is the main focus JL wise of this event.

And Im guessing Aquaman is because he will be the head focus of the next event.

Im excited for this enjoying this event. Recently read Rock of Ages and noticed little tidbits I believe incorporated in DS War. Completely genius love how Johns does that.

To be honest I wouldn't care if he didn't. I am just tired of the concept and I think at this point it has became a awful cliche that has hurt the character in the long run.

@dondave: The Darkseid Wars takes place before Convergence and such. So it takes place before Hal became a renegade and such

BATRON FTW!

Johns has finally seen the light,welcome to the church of BatGod Geoff.

  • Batman – Armed with the godlike power of the Mobius Chair, the Dark Knight has taken on the role of Metreon and plans to use the infinite knowledge of this device to turn Gotham City into a completely crime-free zone!
  • Superman – Corrupted by the weird energies of Apokolips’ fire pits, Superman has been turned into an angry, violent brute. And only one man can possibly save him: Lex Luthor.
