JLA: Created Equal #1

Product Description

When a spaceborn virus wipes out all of the Earth's males ? with two notable exceptions ? the future of the Earth depends on the world's super-women, among them Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Power Girl, Starfire, Zatanna and Black Canary, in JLA: CREATED EQUAL, a thought-provoking 2-issue Elseworlds miniseries in the Prestige Format. CREATED EQUAL marks the return to the JLA of two creators intimately involved with the team: writer Fabian Nicieza (X-Man, X-Force, SUPERMEN OF AMERICA) ? whose work as co-writer of JUSTICE LEAGUE: A MIDSUMMER'S NIGHTMARE set the stage for the current League ? and penciller Kevin Maguire (StrikeBack, Adventures of Captain America), whose talents helped make JUSTICE LEAGUE one of DC's signature titles from the late '80s-early '90s. Inking Maguire on interiors and on the issues' interlocking covers is Joe Rubinstein (ACTION COMICS). In JLA: CREATED EQUAL #1 (retrosolicited this month for release in January), a deadly virus cuts through the world's male population, leaving only two ? Superman, whose Kryptonian physiology has rendered him immune, and Lex Luthor, who has kept himself safe in an isolation suit ? alive in a world of women. But this is no adolescent fantasy. As the female super-heroes of the planet unite to keep things together and face the immense task of rebuilding the world, it isn't long before the biggest issue rises up: what about the future of humankind? The only hope may rest with Lois Lane, pregnant with Superman's child. Luthor announces that the baby will survive...but only if Superman leaves the Earth before his son is born! Luthor's science seems unassailable, but what of his motives? What sinister plans does he have for the son of his most hated foe? The answers are not fully revealed until CREATED EQUAL's shocking conclusion, when the Man of Steel returns to Earth after more than a decade of exile. Finding his son leading a revolt against the world's leaders on Wonder Woman's Paradise Island, which side will Superman take? That of his former allies or that of the son he's never known? This project is supported with house and trade ads. JLA: CREATED EQUAL is a 2-issue miniseries in the Prestige Format, edited by Andrew Helfer.
