The road to hell is always paved with good intentions. And none now know that better than the heroes of the DCU. In the midst of a cataclysmic event perpetrated by the cosmic overlord known across the universe as Darkseid, heroes and villains alike found themselves caught between a power struggle of epic proportions. It was once believed that The Green Lantern Corps were the sole wielders of the most powerful weapons in the universe, but that all changed with the emergence of the color factions. Blue, Red, Yellow, Orange, Violet, and even Black Lantern Corps began to emerge from the cosmos, bringing both hope and destruction in their wake - a fact of which Darkseid was determined to reap for reward. But with his inevitable defeat at the hands of The Man of Steel, who had triumphantly returned from a multiverse spanning quest to revive his fallen cousin Kara Zor-El, only questions were left in the void of Darkseid's nearly prosperous invasion of Earth. For Hal Jordan, The Green Lantern of Sector 2814, it was how to carry on following the tragic death of his infant son Martin - for who he was forced to kill himself, threatened by the menace of Sinestro Corps' member Kryb. For Bruce Wayne, The Batman, it was how to keep Gotham City under control in the midst of his greatest enemy's promotion to Yellow Lantern. For Barry Allen, The recently returned Flash, it was how to keep up in a world that had seemed to pass him by while protecting his loved ones from the cosmic menace. And for all of Atlantis, it was why they suddenly felt a deep void enter their lives without explanation. Now there is both hope and bloodshed left for them all. With his reign of chaos over, The Joker was fatally shot through the skull and left to a death without comedy. Aquaman, The King of Atlantis, finally materialized after being lost within reality itself. Damian Wayne, the son of Batman, has now found a new mentor in The Dark Knight's psychotic ex-partner, Jason Todd. Dick Grayson has just had his marriage proposal accepted by longtime love Barbara Gordon. Superman has just received the news that his wife of many years, Lois Lane, is expecting a child. And perhaps most surprisingly of all, Guy Gardner - banished from The Green Lantern Corps - has now received a power beyond any the universe has ever seen. The time for grieving is over, as the final dawn eclipses the entire DC Universe. The end draws near in this penultimate season of seven years of grand storytelling.
