Five years from now, the future that Batman Beyond came back in time to stop is already in motion. Brother Eye has taken over Cadmus, and has taken the refugee heroes of Earth-2 as its mind-controlled slaves. Superman has walked away from humanity, and another hero wears the mantle in his place. And in deep space, Stormwatch are dead, victims of the true threat from beyond our universe...the being we know as Brainiac. But while heroes still live, there's still hope. On Arrow Island, Green Arrow has faked his own death and used the cover to begin recruiting an Army to take the fight to Brother Eye. And even those who swore they'd never be heroes again-like Red Robin and Firestorm-find themselves drawn back into the battle. The fight for the future of the DC Universe is on!
This is the moment that Batman Beyond has traveled back in time to stop-the moment when his terrible future is born. Five years from now, the world of tomorrow is on the brink of creation. Brainiac has arrived from the stars, and intends to take New York City with him as a souvenir. It's enough to bring Superman out of self-imposed exile, but not even the Man of Steel or his former teammates on the Justice League may be enough to stop the alien conqueror. Can Batman Beyond, Stormwatch, the Justice League Dark, Firestorm and others stop both Brainiac and Brother Eye? Or will the future die along with them? It all leads up to this. Jeff Lemire (JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA), Brian Azzarello (WONDER WOMAN), Dan Jurgens (THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN), Keith Giffen (JUSTICE LEAGUE 3001) and artists such as Patrick Zircher (THE FLASH) redefine the future of the DC Universe!
