Justice League Odyssey has been quite a journey for some of our favourite heroes. Yet things haven’t gone according to plan since they set on their latest mission. Darkseid has gathered his full power once more, and he hastens in punishing, as we learned in the last issue. Fans have also seen some of the team, namely Cyborg, pulled over to his side, as Darkseid has essentially turned him into a living Mother Box. That isn’t the hardest hit; Darkseid taking on one member of the Justice League with lethal results, is.
!! WARNING: Spoilers for Justice League Odyssey #12 !!
Darkseid is able to awaken the Sepulkore due to Starfire’s powers, though he literally throws her inside of it to get it working. She emerges from it under his full control. Unfortunately, he is able to do what Azrael did and all of his warriors, turning them into minions.
Obstacle to Darkseid
Now all three are on his side, and the only person who stands in Darkseid’s way is Green Lantern Jessica Cruz. Cruz is a force to be reckoned with, but unfortunately, her ring is down to 2% charge, and she has no Lantern to recharge it. She still stands against Darkseid despite the long odds, even when Darkseid offers her a place in his army due to her courage.
Cruz and the Ring
Cruz shoots that down quickly and unleashes a powerful punch that sends him reeling, but even that is not enough, as he swats her away. The ring tells Cruz it is down to 0%, but before she can even react he stomps on her hand and crunches it beneath his feet. He then powers up and incinerates Cruz with his Omega Beams, and the last panel shows smoke and ashes as the only thing left.
