While Red Hood is busy taking down a drug ring and Night Wing doesn’t even know if he wants to be a hero or not, the Justice League takes on huge events packed with nothing but brutal action by the most powerful adversaries in the Multiverse…and then we have Justice League Dark…
Wonder Woman recruited Bobo after stopping at his bar about to give up because no one wanted to join her. Zatana and Swamp Thing are force into it all and the Man-Bat-Dude-Thing pretty much just needs a place to live. This is really just a rag-tag vagabond team of some pretty powerful heroes following Swamp Thing and Wonder Woman hoping for a chance to do some cool stuff.
We come into issue #8 in the middle of a big pile of mess where absolutely nothing has been done about the situation with magic other than to make things worse.
Hecate caused some trouble for Wonder Woman but wound up getting eaten by the Upside-down Man. Thing about all that is that Upside-down Man is Hecate’s opposite self. The two halves are now whole, are leading The Otherkind and are getting into Man-Bat-Dude-Thing’s head.
The Parliment of Trees burned down and is now being “improved” by some sentient flower things. No noticable changes with Swamp Thing but this has got to be significant.
Bobo is a drunk monkey who broke Myrra. It all looks very forboding with Bobo and Zatana’s dad’s warning…
And Dr. Fate wants to eat the world with the Helm of Fate.
Cerce is up to some @#&$ as well. Let’s not forget about Cerce.
Wonder Woman and Zatana are away looking for someone to help them with some powerful magic stuff while Swamp Thing and Bobo have to flee the bar from Upside-down Man and his army of Otherkind into a magical dimension and right into the lap of Dr. Fate and who seem to be the Lords of Order…the Lords or Order look pretty tough.
