JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARKSEID WAR - LEX LUTHOR #1

* Summary:
- Lex Luthor has gained the power of a God, but his one failure continues to deny him the peace he craves—and only a crazed Superman can help him get it!


Superman wants pie.

That might not sound like an in-depth, character-driven story, but writer/artist Francis Manapul begs to differ. In this week's Justice League: Darkseid War — Superman, which Manapul wrote, the pie is a metaphor (like any good slice of pie should be), and although there's plenty of action in the issue, the pie's meaning lies at the heart of the one-shot story.

Tying into the Justice League story by writer and DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, the Superman issue is one of six one-shots featuring covers by Manapul, who also drew the interiors of October and November's Justice League issues. And along with the Superman issue, Manapul is also writing the one-shot looking at Lex Luthor.

The weekly tie-in books, which started in October, are exploring the ramifications of some of DC's most beloved heroes getting god-like powers, including Batman, Lex Luthor, The Flash, Superman, Green Lantern and Shazam.

Newsarama talked to Manapul to find out more about this week's issue, what the pie really means, and how the Lex Luthor issue explores something completely different

To expand on the epic "Darkseid War" story currently unfolding in the pages of "Justice League," DC announced back in July that the event would receive an additional series of one-shots. As revealed in the initial press release, the six one-shots each focus on "key characters" from the event and focus on their "personal stories" that unfold during the showdown between Darkseid and the Anti-Monitor.

Now, DC has revealed four of the covers for the six "Justice League: Darkseid War" one-shots exclusively to Comic Book Resources. The covers for the four one-shots -- "Shazam," "Superman," "Green Lantern" and "The Flash" -- all come from artist Francis Manapul and feature the titular characters striking poses in striking new looks. The first of the one-shots, "Justice League: Darkseid War - Batman" #1, arrives in stores this Wednesday.

With today's release of Justice League #41, writer Geoff Johns and artist Jason Fabok are launching a new blockbuster event for the team — and the revamped DCU — titled "Darkseid War."

Spinning out of the final pages of last year's Forever Evil, "Darkseid War" will feature what Johns has described as "Darkseid versus the Anti-Monitor, with the Justice League caught in between." But in recent months, it's been revealed that "Darkseid War" will delve into the very history of the DC Universe, from the New Gods mythology to Wonder Woman's pantheon, while also challenging members of the Justice League to stop the destruction of reality itself.
