|Story/s:||To The Victor...|
The invasion of Dherain began at 10:17am. In under 60 minutes it was lost. Between Steppenwolf himself and his hound Brutaal the World Army forces were quickly dispatched.
Added to this was Beguiler’s chaos energy transforming normal into horrifying and Bedlam’s control of minds sending the troops crazy and against each other.
Brutaal decimated the air forces in moments. It was a massacre. Commander Amar Khan and Michael Holt (Mr Terrific) barely make it out alive.
The Wonders regain consciousness all wondering why they were left to live. Sandman radios in to find the invasion failed and their new mission is to save any survivors. The free agent Wonders agree to help. So they get to saving everyone they can until Alan’s burning need for revenge he turns his sights on Steppenwolf. He goes in for the attack and almost looks like he can take him but then Brutaal attacks from behind. Brutaal and Steppenwolf then beat him lifeless.
Steppenwolf then finds a camera crew filming everything and approaches them. He then on live television declares himself master of the world. But before he can finish his speech he is cut in half but Brutaal.
Brutaal proclaims Steppenwolf foolishly fought for himself, when instead he should have fought for the Darkseid as Brutaal does and then he reveals himself to be Superman!!!
Then he scorches the earth itself in a fiery display of power making the Fire Pits look like nothing.
Superman is back and he’s the ultimate bad guy now. Shit just got real. We saw Superman explode, so I’m guessing this is a clone or an other dimensional version of him. With Green Lantern dead, I can’t see the rest of the Wonders standing a chance against evil Superman. Hope someone has some kryptonite handy. Someone better have an ace up their sleeve or else Earth-2 is screwed.
