Earth 2 #5

Earth 2 has been one of our favorite books in DC's New 52 here at Crave Online, and that may or may not have anything to do with the fact that it's completely separate from the rest of their books (Worlds' Finest excepted). Mostly, it's just because the Justice Society of America has a world all their own where they can be the premiere heroes and not have to play second fiddle to Superman and Batman and Wonder Woman.

Now, James Robinson and Nicola Scott are bringing us the first team-up of the second wave of "wonders" after the aforementioned trinity was wiped out by Darkseid. This time, the Flash (Jay Garrick), Green Lantern (Alan Scott) and Hawkwoman (it's Kendra, but let's hope she'll be Hawkwoman, to make up for what Savage Hawkman has done to Shayera Thal) run up against The Atom (Al Pratt), but quickly realize that their Darkseid is in the form of Grundy, the death god of The Rot. Robinson's title has paralled Geoff Johns' Justice League, but it's so far outshone it that it ain't funny.

Check out these preview pages from Earth 2 #5, due out this week.
