Darkseid is back and a Green Lantern falls in ‘Justice League Odyssey’ #12

A major hero dies in the latest issue!

Spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned.

Ever since Tom King put that nebulous “Darkseid is…” line in our heads, I swear the villain has gained 500% more interest. And now, he’s back in Justice League Odyssey #12. As the primo villain of the DC universe (okay, maybe Lex Luthor is the king right now) one would imagine Darkseid is very dangerous. And based on what he does in today’s issue, he really he might be the most dangerous.


Listen to the latest episode of our weekly Comics podcast now!

After taking out Azrael and Starfire, there is only one hero standing in Darkseid’s way: Jessica Cruz, one of the newest Green Lanterns of Earth. Gathering her courage, she pulls out a fist right to Darkseid’s face.

The punch makes the villain gasp “guh” but not much else. He slaps her away. It seriously knocks her back and on top of that her ring’s power level is zero.

To make things worse, Darkseid breaks her hand. There seems to be no way out of this, but we’ve seen this story a thousand times. Superman will show up right? Some other hero? Right?!

Darkseid really knows how to trash talk. What a way to go out.

Farewell Jessica Cruz. We hardly knew ye.

That’s only a part of the story though and I highly recommend you read the whole thing for the bigger picture.
