Release Date: October 4, 2022

The Crisis continues and like most events at DC Comics, it's always the darkest before the dawn, and goddamn have things gotten dark. Things look like they couldn't get any worse as the heroes scramble to put out the fires of the Secret Society around the world and even Black Adam's gambit to get the Legion of Doom on his side so that they could take their combined power to Deathstroke's face went sideways as we got the awesome Legion of Doom Vs. Secret Society battle. Yeah, that went horribly wrong as the Legion of Doom were infected by the Darkness as well and became more pawns under Deathstroke and ultimately the Great Darkness' control. Let's jump into this issue and see if our heroes can do anything to fight this darkness back or if they too become just puppets for the evil that's spreading across the Multiverse. Let's check it out.
