Earth's greatest heroes have defeated grave threats from Apokolips, but not at a grave price. Left in their stead is a group of young, untrained hereoes who pick up the pieces in the dusty aftermath. The Flash, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl and the Atom are humanity's nascent guardians, but not the ones we've all known and revered. These are different heroes, in a strange and foreign world with dangerous new villains. This is Earth 2. Award-winning writer James Robinson (STARMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE) joins forces with artist Nicola Scott (SUPERMAN, TEEN TITANS) to remiagine the classic Justice Society of America for DC COMICS--THE NEW 52 universe--and sometimes in controversial, unconventional fashion. Don't miss one of the most talked about graphic novels in recent memory!
In the infinite vastness of the Multiverse there exists a world much like our own, with heroes and villains different from the ones we know, yet strangely familiar. Together, the heroes of Earth 2 battled the forces of Darkseid and the New Gods of Apokolips. They thought they'd won. They were wrong. Apokolips has returned, its four Furies of War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death unleashing unspeakable evil. And that is only the beginning. The god-planet itself is on a collision course with Earth 2, preparing to feed on all life and leave only the void in its wake. Superman. Batman. Green Lantern. The Flash. Power Girl. Huntress. Hawkgirl. John Constantine. Mister Terrific. Mister Miracle. Doctor Fate. Lois Lane. Jimmy Olsen. Dick Grayson. Barbara Gordon. Only they can save their world-and the worlds beyond... Writers Daniel H. Wilson, Marguerite Bennett, and Mike Johnson lead an all-star alliance of artists in EARTH 2: WORLDS' END VOL. 1-the first chapter of the sprawling saga that will change the Multiverse forever!

Continuing the saga that began in EARTH 2, writer Daniel H. Wilson (EARTH 2: WORLDÕS END) and artists Jorge Jimenez (SUPERBOY) and Alisson Borges (LOBO) start civilization from scratch in EARTH 2: SOCIETY VOL. 1: PLANETFALL! A year has passed since Earth-2 was destroyed by the armies of Apokolips. The survivors of the catastrophic tragedy have now made planetfall on a new world, and, with the help of heroes old and new, built a home. But some threats can survive even Apokolips. New super-villains have arisen to capitalize on the confusion, even as heroes like Batman, Power Girl, Superman, Green Lantern and The Flash struggle to find their place on an unfamiliar world. And unknown to all, Terry Sloan has developed technology with the power to change everything. Some will want to use his Genesis Machine to re-make this planet into an exact copy of the Earth they left behind; others, to build a brand new society, free from the mistakes of the past. Who wins this debate will determine the course of a civilization, but one thing is certain: in the wrong hands, this device has the power to destroy the last hope of a people who thought theyÕd already lost everything.
The World Army has begun rounding up the super-heros of Earth 2, but for what reason? In an attempt to avoid capture, Dr. Fate and Kid Flash find themselves in the powerful magical realm of Nabu. The protector of Nabu, Wotan, seeks Dr. Fates assistance in obtaining a secret magic locked deep within a tower that only Dr. Fate can enter.
The saga of Earth-2 reaches its cataclysmic conclusion! The heroes of Earth-2 have been brave and bold in their resistance to the forces of Darkseid, but some enemies cannot be defeated. Sometimes the inevitable canÕt be stopped-and now their Earth is being devoured by Apokolips. HumanityÕs only hope is escape. But with DarkseidÕs legions descending on Earth, it will take the combined might of every superhero on the planet just to give humanity a fighting chance. While Batman and his granddaughter Huntress go searching for Bruce WayneÕs secret doomsday contingency, the last survivors of Krypton-Power Girl and Superman-must face their own powerlessness in the face of Darkseid. While an entire planet fights for survival, the fate of the human race may ultimately come down to one man: Alan Scott, the Green Lantern, chosen Avatar of the Green. But in humanityÕs final hour, will Alan have what it takes to wield the power of all the Avatars and fulfill his true destiny? Features writers Daniel H. Wilson (Robopocalypse), Marguerite Bennett (SUPERMAN: LOIS LANE), Mike Johnson (SUPERGIRL) and Cullen Bunn (GREEN LANTERN: THE LOST ARMY), along with an incredible team of artists including Robson Rocha (BIRDS OF PREY), Tyler Kirkham (ACTION COMICS) and many more!

Earth and its greatest champions have never felt so familiarÑor so alienÑin this alternate take on the DC Universe by writer DAN ABNETT (AQUAMAN, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY) and artist JORGE JIMƒNEZ (SUPERBOY, EARTH 2: WORLDÕS END). Green Lantern, Superman and a World Army cabinet of ÒWondersÓ have assumed leadership roles in an effort to unite the cities of Earth-2Éwhether the population of the still-rebuilding world likes it or not. But the growing sentiment against metahumans may soon prove moot. Earth-2 is a geologically barren world, unable to produce vital natural resources for its newly arrived inhabitants. And the resources that do exist are rapidly dwindling, prompting cities to wage all-out war against each other. Even as the Wonders struggle to prevent the last of a civilization from renewing its violent history, Batman and his allies take the battle to the mysterious Mist, who profits from the racketeering of power cells steeped in toxic waste. Unfortunately for them, heÕs also recruited a Wonder of his own in Hourman. Meanwhile, Hawkgirl may have uncovered Earth-2Õs greatest threat: the world-changing intentions of an Amazon race resurrected by Wonder WomanÕs daughter, Fury!
