It’s the fourth and final week of Villains Month, and with people like Black Adam, Doomsday, Bane, Ocean Master and Killer Croc stealing the spotlight, you know it’s wrapping things up in the wickedest way possible. But if you think the end of the month equals the end of villainy. After all, we have half a year of Forever Evil to still contend with, and as long as that series is running strong, you know you’re going to be seeing a lot of these guys…
That’s the Secret Society if you’re unfamiliar with them, and they’re the group responsible for opening the portal to Earth 3 and letting the villains of the DC Universe run rampant. This week, many of their plans are made clear in JUSTICE LEAGUE #23.4: SECRET SOCIETY, written by Geoff Johns and Sterling Gates and drawn by Szymon Kudranski. Of course, part of that plan includes attracting other villains to their cause, so be sure to check out the rest of this week’s Villains Month comics to get a sense of who might be accepting that offer.
