'Death of the Justice League' Coming From DC Comics

DC Comics is killing off the Justice League, apparently including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and more, in a new comic book story starting this April.

The details include that the Justice League comes to an end with Justice League #75 which gets released April 19 - 30 years after the death of Superman storyline - but it's noted it is only the start.

"We've been building to the Death of the Justice League for the last year across the main line,” said the writer behind the event, Joshua Williamson. “I remember buying DEATH OF SUPERMAN 30 years ago and now we have an opportunity to take that idea and go bigger with it. JUSTICE LEAGUE 75 allows us to showcase why the Justice League are comics' greatest heroes as we show the aftermath of the loss against their biggest threat ever and its impact on the DCU.”

According to the official press release below, there will be only one surviving member of the Justice League, and judging by the Dan Jurgens cover below, it won't be Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, or Green Lantern.

"A new Dark Army made up of the DCU’s greatest villains has formed on the edges of the Multiverse and the best and most powerful heroes are pulled together in an epic war to push the darkness back," teases the description for the event. "In the end, the Justice League are killed by the Dark Army with only one survivor to warn the remaining heroes of Earth about what is coming for them!"

“Being able to draw the Justice League is always exciting, they are just the greatest superhero team of all time,” said artist Rafa Sandoval. “We will see a great evil coming out of the darkness and more dark characters that will be revealed very soon. This book is just the starting point and fans do not want to be left behind and miss what is going to happen.”
