Obviously, this sounds like a worthy continuation. The inclusion of the Multiverse is especially interesting. The original animated series dabbled with the concept a couple of times with the Justice Guild and the Justice Lords. Playing off the “Infinity” theme, the series will include heroes and villains from across the DC Multiverse in addition to the core Justice League.
The variant cover by Scott Hepburn shows the Elongated Man with the team. The preview pages also feature appearances by Big Barda, Blue Beetle, and the Atom. Time will tell what other members appear.
