SPOILER WARNING: The following article contains major spoilers for Justice League: No Justice #2 by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Joshua Williamson and Francis Manapul, on sale now.
Justice League: No Justice is laying the groundwork for a more expansive DC Universe.
Once the four-issue weekly miniseries concludes, series writers Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, and Joshua Williams will go their separate ways as they launch three new Justice League titles. Each series will pick up on threads introduced in No Justice, and the event's second issue just set things up for Justice League Odyssey.
The coming title, by Williamson and Stjepan Sejic, will feature a ragtag group of space-faring heroes including Cyborg, Starfire, Azrael and Green Lantern Jessica Cruz. In a surprising turn, they will be accompanied by the nefarious Darkseid, of all people. The series has been promoted as seeing them exploring a new sector of space that didn't exist in the DC Universe until recently, and No Justice #2 showed us where that new sector will come from.
Welcome to a Larger DC Universe
The known DC Universe is divided into 3,600 sectors of space, which are protected by the Green Lantern Corps. Within each sector are thousands of planets and billions of lives, and No Justice is making the universe just a little bigger. As the four teams on Colu race to restore the four energies of sentient life to their respective cosmic trees (yes, trees), Team Mystery uncovers something truly surprising that could help to save the universe from destruction.
The group of Superman, Martian Manhunter, Sinestro, Starfire and Starro discover a mysterious, seemingly impenetrable barrier encasing the Tree of Mystery. Once they finally break through the outer shell of the Coluan "Nursery," they discover tens of thousands of planets are being kept in miniaturized form using Brainiac bottle technology. It's just like the city of Kandor, but on a much, much larger scale. In order to power the Tree of Mystery, the group of heroes and villains realize that they must free the planets from their bottles.
The complication, of course, is that they have no idea what introducing an entirely new sector of space will actually do to the universe. These planets have been hidden away for eons and there is no telling what their inhabitants might be capable of. This new sector of space will be of interest to those who protect the known universe, of course. It will take some time to chart out everything there is to known about them, and it seems to be the Justice League's mission to figure it all out.
The interesting thing is that Starfire is the only member of Team Mystery who will actually be featured in Justice League Odyssey, and we expect No Justice will explain how and why Team Mystery eventually gives way to the group that will explore the unknown.
