So does this mean Magog will be in?

Also I'm not that familiar with dc comics like I am marvel so do lobo, doomsday, and darkseid have a chance with the kingdom come type storyline?

If it IS based on Kingdom Come and they don't have some "I was manipulating you all into infighting" kind of twist, then Darkseid probably won't be involved. It's not on his planet so he won't care

Lobo's a hitman/bounty hunter by trade so he could easily fit in the story. Doomsday could be someone's goon, but he won't get involved with anything unless it involves whooping somebody's ass.


I heard that it is sounds like the tower of babel story,then i hear it sounds like the kingdom come story.Maybe it's a combination of the two?Taking ideas,fights,lines from those stories? I haven't read either,so i wouldn't know.


Tower of Babel was about what would happen if a bad guy got their hands on Batman's measures to defeat the rest of the Justice League in case of emergency. What happens next is a huge massacre. Now everyone else thinks Batman is a douche.

Meanwhile, in Kingdom Come, Superman quits when he's considered "obsolete" next to some newb hero. the newb and his goons (who kill villains whenever they want) screw everything up since they don't have the restraint of the original guys and the world goes to hell in a handbasket soon enough. So Superman and the OG league try to fix it.

Given the fact that it may be Team Batman vs. Superman and its about betrayal, Tower of Babel seems more likely.


Cool.Kinda Unrelated but......So justice league doom was an adaption of tower of babel? I liked that movie.
Thanks to Minion for the Sig!

That seems to overlook the obvious fact that Kingdom Come is completely predicated on differing philosophies of justice -- and that the story specifically deals with a divide between sides typified by Batman and a Superman who has crossed over to a more aggressive line.

That strikes me as a more resonant comparison, based on the few basic elements we know about.

Well I've been saying the "Tower of Babel" makes a lot more sense for a while for a simple base plot, and now with Catwoman revealed the way she was I'd expect her to be the one to steal the contengency plans from the Bat Cave, which they've showed a somewhat connection with her to that stage. This could very well mean the Injustice League which could host many favorite villains: Luthor, Black Manta, Ra's Al Ghul, Sinestro, Dr. Light, Joker, Poison Ivy, Cheetah, Penguin, Shade, etc.

This could also lead to another few scenarios: the Lazarus Pits could be stolen/manipulated by the wrong people. I'd guess Harley's here to help unlock Joker from Arkham Asylum or as a pawn of somekind, and will probably have her sets of helpers like Bane, Ivy, Scarecrow, etc.

Also, with this in mind, the Fortress of Solitude seems to already have 1 BIG BAD MOTHA..... loose already: Doomsday. If Luthor swaps with Superman, he's now got the access to the Phantom Zone to start an army against the JLA. The only way to keep him or someone like Parallax under control from killing ALL, might be to team-up with someone that has fought him before: Darkseid, this can help keep both Earth and Apokolips safe for now which would give him a reason to have to team-up with his enemies the JLA. This could mean all kinds of wild bad guys: Queen Bee, Zod, Mirror Master, etc.

If so, maybe Zatanna does have a great shot afterall and Boon's just troll patrolling lol.
