revealed in an interview earlier today that none other than Superman's nemesis Lex Luthor will join the Justice League in April's issue #30! The team will consist of Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman, Shazam, Luthor, and another villain-turned-hero, Flash rogue Captain Cold. For those who have been reading the Forever Evil series, this actually seems like a natural progression, as the series sees Luthor struggling to unite a team that can stand against the Crime Syndicate(evil versions of the Justice League who have invaded from a parellel universe) after they've apparently killed the Justice Leagues. Luthor truly attempting to reform and give the hero thing a go is sure to be fascinating, however long it lasts.
Oh, and in the last line of the interview, Johns tosses this tidbit out: "Ted Kord returns to the DCU in Forever Evil #7, and plays a role in Justice League post-Forever Evil." For long-suffering fans of the second Blue Beetle, this is very welcome news!
