ON THEMYSCIRA, GRAIL’S BIRTH FORESHADOWS THE DARKSEID WAR

The Prologue to the Darkseid War is on Themyscira. The Amazons were created by Zeus to bring peace to mankind. After defeating Hercules and his army, the Amazons retreated to the Paradise Island of Themyscira. On a fateful night, Diana was to be born to Queen Hippolyta.

That same night, an abomination was born: She was the daughter of Darkseid and the Amazon assassin Myrina Black. Her name was to be Grail. Menalippe was Hippolyta’s favorite oracle. At the birth of the child, she prophesied Grail would bring about a great darkness: a terrible war “between the dark God and the antiGod.” Eventually, Minalippe and Penelope were left to die by Myrina.

GRAIL ATTACKS THE JUSTICE LEAGUE AND SUMMONS ANTI-MONITOR

The Justice League are investigating a crime scene. Strangely, they tracked it down because a Boom Tube was open there and two people are dead. Diana narrates the story and reveals the team’s dynamics: Batman and Flash are running tests on the evidence, Hal and Jessica are taking a look at the people in the complex, Shazam and Cyborg are investigating the Boom Tube. When Cyborg locates two other murders of women named “Myrina Black”, an explosion happens.

Grail teleports out of Flash’s mouth and starts tearing the Justice League apart. First, she attacks Batman in a duel then takes out Cyborg and Shazam. Grail proves to be fast, strong and able to emit eye beams.Grail has the advantage over Diana and pins her to a car. Meanwhile, the Green Lanterns intervene but are quickly taken down. Using Power Ring (Jessica Cruz), Grail creates shadows to summon the Anti-Monitor. Sinisterly, the anti-God is here!

WHO ARE THE NEW GODS OF THE JUSTICE LEAGUE?

Grail’s plan in the Darkseid War was to create New Gods in order to gain the Anti-Life Equation. As Batman later finds out, Anti-Monitor’s origin story on Qward sentenced him to destroying the DC multiverse after every cycle of rebirth.

The punishment was because he sought the beginning… Using the Anti-Life Equation, Grail could stop the rebirth of the universe, with a final plan: Superwoman’s son. Who are the New Gods of the Justice League?
