Format: Hardcover
Good story great art work and far reaching revelations for the DCU. The Justice League are missing, the Crime Syndicate have taken over. The one thing standing in their way is Lex Luther. Lex takes the lead role but we are constantly reminded that he not a hero. I do like that fact that this version of the Crime Syndicate are not just evil versions of the Justice League, they are different in not only their thinking but their powers and abilities as well. Also the new 52 debut of B Zero. The only down side is I would have liked to see more of Owl Man, he is more of a cameo than even a side character in this story. I thought a couple of returns were rushed towards the end. This also sets up the next story what could have been so bad that it made the CS leave their own universe. Lex also put the puzzle together on one of DCU's biggest secrets.

Forever Evil is the first big event of The New 52. Earth is under the rule of the Crime Syndicate, evil counter parts of the Justice League. Earth's heroes have disappeared while villains join the syndicates Secret Society, and for those that don't , join earth's unlikely savior; Lex Luthor. The seven issue mini series is written by Geoff Johns with art by David Finch. For a story about villains, Finch was a good choice of artist with his dark visuals of both characters and scenes.

Earth is under rule of the Crime Syndicate, they have taken the world's greatest heroes by surprise. They weren't prepared and the Justice League is gone In place of the worlds protectors stands a tyrannical cabal of killers whose powers and personalities are an evil reflection of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and more. Their simple goal of ruling the world was instantaneous with their army of Earth's worst villains joining there cause. Lex Luthor is the one man who can stand against their rule, forming an allegiance with a crew of criminals as well as one legendary crime fighter making way for a confrontation where no matter the outcome, evil wins.

This is DC Comics and Geoff Johns first big event of The New 52. It is is pretty much a self-contained story spinning out of The Trinity War crossover that had building to ever since the series began, pitting the three leagues against one another, setting the stage for Forever Evil.

At the conclusion of the "Trinity War" a gateway was opened to Earth-3 allowing the Crime Syndicate to travel to our earth; Ultraman, Owlman, Superwoman, Power Ring, Johnny Quick and Deathstrom.

As you'd expect from Geoff Johns, Forever Evil is a fantastic story that flies along a break neck speed. The simple premise being that an alternative Justice League turn up on Earth and proceed to takeover. While the evil alternative JLA doppelgängers are great fun, and offer a neat variation on the much loved characters we are familiar with, it is the rise of a range of super-villains that rise up to stand between the 'Crime Syndicate' and world domination that really blow you away. That said, all of the characters in this are brilliantly written and drawn and this is a great addition to DC's New 52 series.
This book does tie in with the Justice a league run, but you do not need to have read it to enjoy this standalone novel. Only gripe would be a lack of any decent draft art, scripts or any quality bonus material beyond a handful of sketches. Still a great addition to any collection.

Format: Hardcover
The seven-issue `New 52' mini-series "Forever Evil" from DC Comics is collected as Forever Evil HC (The New 52). This is the story of Lex Luthor's progress from being an evil villain to becoming a good guy. Not a hero, for that is just a mater of perception; or a nice guy, for that is not his personality; but to actually doing `good' acts, because he can see that they are somehow better things to do than the opposite. And he did win, after all, so he can even be magnanimous to Superman. Oh, and there is a big struggle to free the Earth from a gang of super-powered criminals from another dimension as well; that takes up most of the book. Batman helps with that.

No, really.

I can waffle on some more if you want, but that is about it. However, all joking aside (and I really wasn't), this is an excellently scripted and illustrated big giant Earth-threatening event, and while there are many big scenes of carnage and fighting, there is a small and tightly focussed storyline running through this series that follows Lex and Batman (and Catwoman)'s struggle to infiltrate the fallen Justice League satellite to overthrow the Crime Syndicate who have taken up residence there. This is a self-contained story, and while the companion Justice League volume - Justice League Volume 5 HC (The New 52) - runs in parallel, you don't have to read anything else to follow and enjoy this.
