Welcome to this week's edition of Top 5 Fridays! If you have been keeping up with the current story arc in Justice League, you would know that the Darkseid War has finally begun and the Anti-monitor prepares to fight him. This story has been building since the beginning of the New 52, and it seems these two are equally matched and ready to destroy everything. Obviously that can't happen, but what can we do when even the Justice League is caught off guard by the strength of both sides. Thankfully we actually do have some very powerful characters that have been built up over the history of the New 52 that could potentially turn the tide in the war, and we are going to look over them today! Just as a warning there are some spoilers from old stories, but enough of that LET'S GET STARTED!
5: Justice League United
Why would we have the Justice League United join the fray if the regular Justice League is in the war? To answer this question I ask all of you who remember the first fight with the Anti-Monitor went. To weaken him, it required EVERYONE to fight him. Everyone in the Multiverse is thrown at the Anti-Monitor and then the Spectre. Now this time around the Anti-Monitor appears to be weakened to the point of being an equal to Darkseid, who while powerful, isn't as powerful as pre-New 52 Anti-Monitor. With that in mind, there would still need to be a powerful force to fight the monstrous beings, and nothing says power in numbers. As the Sneak Peek suggested the JLU is getting everyone willing to help fight, some as powerful as Mongul and the Phantom Stranger. What better way to show the DCU wanting to live than have them all fight to save their world.
4: Trinity of Sin
3: Infinity Man
Remember this guy? Remember him and his Forever People? Well here's a shocker; Infinity Man might be one of the most powerful beings in the DC universe. "How powerful can one New God be," you are probably asking...That New God was able to kill every New God on both Apokolips AND New Genesis, with the exception of an Anti-Life Equation powered Darkseid, in the story arc Death of the New Gods. Yes. EVERY GOD. Killed by this single one. This character needs a second chance at life, and with the amount of power he has, he could help the justice league more than Mister Miracle can...after all, in his own words, he's here to help.
2: Highfather and His Armies
1: The White Lantern Corps.
