“WE LIVE IN A JUSTICE SOCIETY” part one “COME TOGETHER RIGHT NOW”
Earth 2. 2021.
For decades, they have gathered and colluded in secret. To the last, these grim conspirators could be described as, at best, self-interested and, at worst, “evil.”
Xìng Sinestro. Pinocchio. The Black Racer. Ngi the Gorilla God. The Haunted Panzer. Desperado Despero. Nanaue the Shark King. The Memer. Just to name a few…
They are the Legion of Doom. And they have finally decided to unite, as one, to take down their respective enemies. Can any who oppose them survive?
The attack begins on the Throne-world within the Constellation Aquarius. Arthur Curry first came to this amazing planet in 1941 (see EARTH-2: ARTHUR CURRY OF ATLANTIS #1). The human body being 90% water, the aqua-tech of Atlantis largely preserved Curry’s vigor. Yet, eighty years is still eighty years… and time took it’s toll. He had just transitioned leadership to his daughter when disaster struck…
Atlantis’ old enemies, the shark-like Carcharodons, returned with new allies. The deceptive robotic vehicle-shapeshifting race, the Stel, join their assault. Worse still, sorcerers of the Cult of Qward bolster Atlantis’ enemies with strange magic while mythological god-like entities lead the charge.
Atlantis’ only hope is for Arthur to return home… return to Earth. And seek Justice!
But can he make the dangerous trek with all the evil in the universe pursuing him?

“Law and Order” Part 4 “My God, My God, Why Have You Abandoned Me?”
In the basement of Baron Winters’ mansion on Earth 2, we see Lee Travis (as the Crimson) coming through a door to face Winters, Renee Montoya (as the Question), Jill Carlyle (as the Crimson Avenger), and the mysterious (but not for long) I Ching. I Ching turned out to be Wing How, partner of the Crimson during the forties when the Seven Soldiers fought. Wing was believed to have been killed in the final battle which scattered the Soldiers across time, space, and dimensions. Winters’ home is indeed a dimensional portal through which travel to other times and places can be achieved. Wing and Travis disappear through a door to search for the other Soldiers of Victory. The mirror that showed Lee Travis’ sight was given to Jill.
As for our heroines, they have to change, uniform up, and go through the trial of the gang that Renee arrested. Seems, even on Earth 2 crime doesn’t stop even for interdimensional hijinks.

WEIGHT OF THE WAVES PART 8 — FINALE
“THEOTHANATOLOGY”
Tonight, Arthur Curry knows, gods will die.
He just hopes he won’t be one of them.
Poseidon, ashamed by his first trueborne son, has surrendered his crown and his powers to the newly apotheosized AQUAGOD.
Diana of Themyscira, reborn as the star’s light incarnate, is the CELESTIAL WONDER WOMAN.
At the base of Olympus itself, THE OTHERS, with the full force of Atlantis and Amazonia are their backs, bring the fight to the God Lanterns and the treacherous armies of the Betrayer Gods.
With the Seal of Clarity, bloody ENYO foresaw and foreclosed many ways she could be felled. But the rise of Aquagod was not one of them.
As Arthur fights to wrest the Sword of Cetus from her hand, the Celestial Wonder Woman faces TRITON, the scion of the seas, as he attempts to foul the sacred waters of Olympus.
On the ground, the armies of the Others are strong, but the Betrayers control the landscape. So Much is made of Poseidon’s dominion over the oceans... but many forget that the tectonic plates themselves are under his power. KAHINA, however, did her homework. Receiving telepathic word from her, Arthur summons a vicious EARTHQUAKE to rock the battlefield, leaving the unprepared Betrayers stunned!
Arthur’s effort turns the tide in the battle, but leaves him open to the attacks of Enyo! Diana, sensing the danger, travels by starlight to quickly intervene.
That doesn’t mean Triton is left unaccounted for, though. In the aftermath of the quake, MERA and the Others arrive to hold off the mer-menace. They might not quite be demigods, but they’re something better – heroes.
Using her Lasso of Truth, Diana tears the Sword from Enyo’s grasp — and into Arthur’s. With a swift motion, Aquagod cleaves Enyo in twain, and the Saffron Lanterns suddenly find themselves without her power.
Triton, either wise enough to admit defeat or simply craven enough to beg mercy, surrenders when Wonder Woman and Aquagod return to reinforce the Others.
Just like that, the battle is won.
