Synopsis

Thy Kingdom Come is a Justice Society of America storyline written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by Dale Eaglesham and Alex Ross. The story features Superman of Earth-22 being stranded in New Earth following a global conflict between heroes that ravaged his world. Soon after Superman joins forces with the JSA in preventing New Earth from following the same path as his world by stopping a Old God of the First World, Gog.

Overview

Before the creation of the Fourth World, the Third World was under a final battle between the Old Gods. Among the Old Gods was Gog, who was unwilling to take either sides and was cast off after the result of that cataclysmic war. Gog plunged into the Bleed and traveled through various alternate universes until he landed on New Earth. Centered in Africa. Inert, his consciousness lingered in the stone and lava. A local tribe built a staff out of his remnants, enabling a user to channel Gog's energy. By the present day, William Matthews, a archaeologist and priest, discovered the forged staff and became mad after touching it. This cause him to have visions of the Multiverse, including having visions of events on Earth-22. Following this, Matthews began a serial killings on metahumans who claim to be gods by blasting holes through their chests and disintegrating their hearts.

Meanwhile, the Justice Society of America heeded to a burning paint factory while attending a charity at a local fire station. There they discovered the cause of the blaze to be the deceased metahuman criminal Goth, who was among Matthews' victims.

Notes

  • Marketed as the "sequel" to the acclaimed 1996 limited series Kingdom Come. This storyline is the second of such sequels, the first being the bookend mini-series The Kingdom as well as its satellite one-shot issues. Although co-creator of Kingdom Come, Alex Ross, stated that that this story is not intended as a sequel to Kingdom Come as that would negate the purpose of the original story.[1]
  • New JSA member David Reid is injured in the series, but restored and given additional power as Magog.
