In theory, traveling to the future in order to meet the later version of yourself so that you can save all of reality would be a good thing. OF course as seasoned comic book readers know, that's generally not the case.
It's little surprise, then, that while the first several pages of Scott Snyder and Jorge Jimenez's Justice League #20 show the League meeting their future counterparts from the Sixth Dimension and getting along well with them, the cover art shows the two teams clashing in a big way. The cognitive dissonance is further amplified when you read the solicitation copy for the issue, which promises to introduce a world filled with "hundreds of dead Supermen."
In short, there's no way our heroes should trust this League, not matter how friendly and helpful they appear to be.
And they do seem to be helpful. While Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest should probably take what they're being told with a grain of salt, its possible that the future team is telling them something of a truth as they explain how to defeat Lex Luthor and save all of reality. After all, if they are a future incarnation of the team, it would stand to reason they might have some sort of vested interest in preventing Luthor from achieving his multiverse-threatening goals.
Or, they might be working to help Luthor's plans to unfold as intended.
Either way, we'll learn the truth (or some of it, at least) when Snyder and Jimenez's Justice League #20 goes on sale Wednesday, March 20. Until then, check out CBR's exclusive preview, below.
