The latest issue of Justice League: Generation Lost is one of those alternative future tales both DC and Marvel love to dish out from time to time. After Captain Atom becomes lost in the timestream he arrives more than 100 years in the future with a brand new Justice League battling legions of OMACs. He manages to make a small contribution to the ruined world, and learn the event which must be stopped, before he’s returned to his own time.
The new team consists of Batman (Damian Wayne), a Black Canary (a “descendent” of Hawk and Dove), a Plastic Man clone, a sword-weilding Shazam, J’onn J’onzz, the Creeper, a Blue Scarab, a descendent of Dick Grayson, and Power Girl.
Like most of these futuristic snapshots, this one offers little more than a chance to dream-up new characters or design new costumes for current ones (none of which are all that memorable). One thing we do learn is Maxwell Lord will attempt to kill Wonder Woman unless Captain Atom and his League can stop him (guess Max is holding a grudge over that whole ‘broken neck’ thing).
