    Cool to see Morrison's concepts come into play, but its bittersweet because seeing it reminds of happier times for me overall that are long gone today.

    I loved this. Utterly loved it. That last panel stinger was obviously some wonderful ruthless pragmatism, but I think most of all I liked the creativity on display in Luthor's Multiversal Murder Spree of Solipsism.

    High points were definitely the worlds where Russell really stretched his legs with the Luthors. Generations Alexander was a solid choice for companion for a lot of reasons, as was the Black Mercy hints built into the state. But it was definitely Earth-32 and the Super-Martian and Bat-Luthor being partners/lovers that felt high concept and really well defined and dimensional. It had a slightly Midnighter/Apollo vibe. This is the same universe as Bat-Lantern, too, so it's just fascinating to think of whatever their mish-mash composite timeline looks like.

    Earth-1 was interesting. Very, subtly interesting and thought-provoking. Earth-50 and the backstory of the Justice Lords was a fun easter egg. Earth-44 (where the Justice League are Metal Men of Wil Magnus' creation) was unique. Earth-13 was pretty par for the course. But I was blown away by the Gardener Luthor of Earth-47, the Luthor of the Sunshine Superman Hippy Earth. Like, Black Mercy space tea and deep philosophy, man. So yeah, EARTH-32 and EARTH-47 were just really interesting to play around with.

    Wait wait wait. Could anyone please explain the Earth-1 thing? I know Multiversity by heart and - unfortunately - I have read the Superman Earth 1 trilogy as well.

    Earth 38, WHAT WHAT! Only quibble is that Superboy on Earth 38 took place in the 1920s. That doesn't look like the 1920s. Hitch may not have known that.

    In this universe, Luthor actually is a good man, But he was injured by Zod during his fight with Supes when Lex trying to help Superman. And that makes him trapped in a state of coma, Though his fiancee(Or girlfriend?) Takes his name, Calling herself Lex( Which makes me surprised, I thought Luthor will visit this female Lex) And Luthor should be visited the future after this incident

    Earth 1 being stealthy rebooted is enough to buy this book alone ��

    Good issue, Seeing different versions of Lex through the Multiverse is really interesting. What makes me a little disappoint is Earth-1 Lex isn't the Female version................

    This one was Jason Latour, not Mark Russell.

    Yeah, but this was clearly a different take - the Lex here is a more classic take - so Earth One is no longer Earth 1, thank god.

    So is Bat-Lantern also Luthor, and in the future he simply goes full Bat? Loved it, loved it all, especially that while they never SAY the Lex of Earth-LSD was growing lots of pot, of course he was. And Lex in the bed, and not being able to be sure exactly what 'our' Lex is thanking him for? Even with HoX on full throttle, this was easily my favorite of the week.

    Ok, thanks.
    It's almost disturbing that so many important DC stories in the latest 3-4 years focus on Multiversity (including Flashforward). I wonder if it's another hint of a looming crisis.

    This was fantastic. Doomthor was amazing. I love how the Lex of Supermartian’s world was a Batman. I loved all the little cameos of other Lexs. I really want to know what went down on Earth 1 though. Is that a set up for something else? And of course Lex has got a back up plan of everything goes south lol.

    Yeah, I think it's a little too soon to assume this was a reboot. Keep in mind, this was the future. There could be any number of possible explanations for what went on here. Plus, notice the look on prime Luthor's face when he touched that universe's Luthor. He noticed something and then thanked "him". So there may be more going on here than we're seeing. Like they have plans or there is some sort of backstory here. Knowing DC, it will be another five to ten years before we find out what it is, though.

    Keep in mind, also, this could all be part of the fantasy that prime Luthor cooked up in the Black Mercy. So none of this is actually happening.

    I'm really behind on all the Justice League stuff. Can I read this and still get what's going on?

    Kind of. It’s just Lex visiting his counterparts across the Multiverse. Why he’s visiting them and why he looks the way he looks only makes sense if you’ve read Snyder’s JL though.

    Okay, I have a general understanding of what was going in in JL up until a few months ago. Thank ya!
