If you are loving what Scott Snyder has been doing on DC Metal with the Justice League, then get ready because more is on the way! DC Comics is promising that the conclusion of Metal “will shake the DC Universe to its deepest foundations and do something that even the most passionate fans will characterize as unimaginable and utterly audacious.”

The event will set up “even more bold and daring storytelling” with a four-issue weekly mini-series, Justice League: No Justice, written by Snyder, Tynion IV, and  Williamson with pencils by all-star artist Francis Manapul. The first issue is scheduled for May 9.

Justice League
Justice League: No Justice

In this four-issue miniseries, the super-villain Brainiac arrives on Earth with a dire warning for the Justice League: there’s a threat coming to destroy Earth, one that the heroes are ill-equipped to handle.  Brainiac thinks he holds the key to victory, but it means combining members of the League with some of the most dangerous villains in the DC Universe and sending them into battle against this extinction-level menace. The stakes are at their absolute highest; if one of these teams fail. It’s game over.

Snyder had this to say:

We thought we knew the entire map of the DC cosmos. We thought we had explored all there was to explore. But now we know that all this time the Multiverse was nothing but a fishbowl, and now we’ve been dumped into the ocean, unleashing terrifying new threats, and wondrous new possibilities. METAL opened up channels of storytelling that Francis, James, Joshua and I are excited to explore in a big way. When we’re finished, fans will never look at the Justice League in the same way again.

Manapul added:

I’m laying out the biggest action of my life. The Justice League realizes that they need to expand their reach to become something bigger than they have ever been before. If you thought my work for JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARKSEID WAR was huge, I’m taking the League to the edge of the cosmos with NO JUSTICE. Anyone who has asked for Harley Quinn, Martian Manhunter, Starfire, Zatanna, the Atom, Raven, or Doctor Fate to be in their personal Justice League will stand up and cheer.

All this will set up a “family” of Justice League titles, beginning in June, headlined by Snyder on Justice League with additional titles written Tynion IV,  Williamson and more in the coming months.

What do you guys think? It seems like there are big changes coming for the JL. Changes that may include new team members if the below images are any indication. Check them out, comment and discuss. And as always come back to Monkeys Fighting Robots for more information on this as it develops.
