This DC superhero has an ‘Endgame’ moment in Justice League #75

The Justice League is dead…but they died as heroes.

And one of them had the Endgame “I am…Iron Man” moment.

Remember 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. Just as Thanos is about to use the Infinity Stones to destroy all life in the universe, he’s rushed by Tony Stark. When all hope seems lost, Tony reveals he stole the stones and prepares to use his powers. But just before he does, Tony gasps to say his last words and shakes up the core of a decade-old cinematic fanbase in the making.

Say it again with us…

“I am Iron Man.”

It was more than just a reminder of his last words in 2008’s Iron Man. Those last four words from Tony Stark perfectly encapsulate what his character has always been about in the MCU; witty, witty, intelligent with a heart of gold. They proved that even when things looked bleakest, Tony remained himself.

Three years after this cinematic milestone, Marvel’s larger rival universe faces a rather grim situation, perhaps even grimmer than the events of Endgame. That crisis is “Death of the Justice League,” currently taking place in the 75th issue of the DC comic book of the same name.

Similar to Endgame, the events of this book wreak havoc on the universe in which it takes place. But just like in that movie, there’s one character who doesn’t let his dire situation ruin his smug attitude…and he manages to save the world. anyway day.

Spoilers ahead for Justice League #75

Justice League #75 on April 26 was illustrated by Rafa Sandoval, written by Joshua Williamson, painted by Jordi Tarragona, painted by Matt Herms, and written by Josh Reed. It starts with members of the Justice League teleporting from their place in the universe. Superman was swept from Warworld orbit, Batman was ripped from Gotham, Green Lantern was removed from OA, and more.

All are moved one by one until the selection reaches Dina Lance, also known as Black Canary. His longtime girlfriend, Oliver Queen, aka Green Arrow, sees her “teleporting” and decides she doesn’t have it, clings to him, and completes the teleportation by his side. Oliver, Dinah, and other key members of the Justice League find themselves in the House of Heroes, the home of the Justice League Incarnate protecting the multiverse.

JLI leader Calvin Ellis aka President Superman tells the main Justice League that a terrible threat is on his way to destroy all existing truth. even describing the threat known as great darkness, the entropic entity heads towards the House of Heroes and begins tearing it apart. By helping JLI with their book, Doctor Multiverse manages to steer the heroes away from where they are now, but where they came from isn’t much safer.

Transported to the ruins of a dead multiverse, the heroes are greeted by the mad scientist Pariah, the creator of the threat that sparked Crisis on Infinite Earths. Pariah’s punishment for awakening the Anti-Monitor was to be locked in a dying multiverse loop and watch crisis after crisis forever. Now Pariah wants out and has summoned the Great Darkness to end all existence, not just her imprisonment, so she can know peace.

Knowing the heroes of the DCU would stand up to him, Pariah assembled an army of the worst villains featured in the pages of DC Comics. black army. Pariah unleashes his army on our unprepared heroes, and a war for the ages begins. But Batman quickly finds that the Dark Army isn’t really the biggest threat in the multiverse. This is more of a defense, a distraction that will allow Pariah to launch the Antimatter Chamber, a machine that will destroy the entity.

Batman tries to reach the machine, but is held back by Pariah’s dark forces. All hope seems to have vanished as the heroes engage in a losing battle against impossible odds and the machine that will end Pariah’s plan is triggered… And just then, Oliver Queen appears.

Remember, he’s a hero who wasn’t supposed to be here. As Black Canary rushes onto the stage, she bows into his hand and screams for her love. In disbelief, she asks him what he’s doing, to which Oliver replies, “What I always do…is save the fucking day.”

And he does.

With a perfectly aimed shot, Oliver manages to temporarily stop the Multiverse’s demise by placing an arrow several football fields into Pariah’s side. The spire explodes and Pariah’s plan is temporarily foiled, shattering on the dead planet. But as with Tony Stark, Oliver’s bet to save the truth comes at a price.

One of the Dark Army’s most powerful soldiers, Doomsday wreaks havoc on the battlefield. Most of the heroes give him plenty of room, but as soon as Oliver concentrates on his shot, Doomsday manages to get behind him. She raises her arms and with a wild slap, they land them on the Green Arrow, crushing it against the surface of the stone.

Dinah runs to Oliver and blasts Doomsday with a terrifying scream. As Oliver is shattered on the ground, Black Canary asks him why he would follow him. With his dying breath, Oliver declares that he will go wherever Dinah goes. Then, the helpless superhero Green Arrow dies, daring to face the multiverse’s greatest threat with only a bag of rigged arrows.

Unfortunately, Oliver’s sacrifice doesn’t save the universe the way Tony does. The Dark Army opens a deadly field across the rest of the Justice League. Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman are reduced to skeletons at the hands of Pariah, just as Barry Allen once was at the end of Crisis on Infinite Earths. For all their bravery, Justice League and Justice League Incarnate are still dying.

And yet hope persists. Before he could destroy the rest of the heroes, Pariah lost consciousness due to Black Man’s act of summoning Shazam’s lightning bolt. The former villain-turned-hero manages to escape the carnage and escapes to Earth, where the Justice League has informed its citizens that he is dead, thus triggering DC’s latest Universal Crisis event, Dark Crisis.

Now it’s up to new heroes like Jon Kent’s Superman, Jace Fox’s Batman and Yara Flor’s Wonder Woman to step in and defend the truth. Their task will not be easy; Pariah is even more determined to destroy the entity after her battle with the heroes does not end as she planned. But if they manage to save the day, turn the tides of darkness, and overcome the nothingness that threatens them, they will owe part of their victory to this trick arrow. A hero who is himself until he dies, who pursues the woman he loves and does his best to serve the greater good.

To a hero who is even a little smart at the end.

Justice League #75 hits comic shops and digital platforms on April 26.

April 26’s Justice League #75 is drawn by Rafa Sandoval, written by Joshua Williamson, inked by Jordi Tarragona, colored by Matt Herms, and lettered by Josh Reed. It begins with members of the Justice League being teleported from where they are across the universe. Superman is snatched out of Warworld’s orbit, Batman ripped from Gotham, Green Lantern pulled from OA, etc.
They’re all transported one by one until the selection gets to Dina Lance, AKA Black Canary. Her long-time lover Oliver Queen, AKA Green Arrow, sees her being “beamed up” and decides he’s not having it, latching onto her and completing the teleportation at her side. Oliver, Dinah, and the rest of the major members of the Justice League wind up at the House of Heroes, home of the multiverse-protecting Justice League Incarnate.
The leader of the JLI, Calvin Ellis AKA President Superman, tells the main Justice League that a dire threat is on its way to devour all existing realities. Even as he explains the threat, known as the Great Darkness, the entropic entity makes its way to the House of Heroes and begins taking it apart. Doctor Multiverse, who’s been assisting the JLI in their own book, manages to teleport the heroes away from their current predicament, but the place they arrive isn’t much safer.
Transported to the ruins of a dead multiverse, the heroes are met by the mad scientist Pariah, the originator of the threat that kicked off the Crisis on Infinite Earths. Pariah’s punishment for waking the Anti-Monitor was to be locked in a loop of dying multiverses, endlessly watching crisis after crisis for all eternity. Now, Pariah wants out, and he’s summoned the Great Darkness to end not just his imprisonment, but all of existence, so that he may know peace.
Knowing the heroes of the DCU will oppose him, Pariah has assembled an army of some of the worst villains to ever feature in the pages of DC Comics, a team of baddies he’s calling his Dark Army. Pariah unleashes his army on our unprepared heroes, and a battle for the ages begins. However, Batman is quick to identify the fact that the Dark Army isn’t truly the multiverse’s biggest threat. They’re more of a defense, a distraction that will allow Pariah to start up his Antimatter Chamber, a machine that will obliterate existence.
Batman attempts to get to the machine but is held back by Pariah’s shadowy forces. All hope seems gone as the heroes fight a losing battle against impossible odds and the machine that will culminate Pariah’s plan boots up…And just then, Oliver Queen appears.

Keep in mind, this is a hero who wasn’t even supposed to be here. Black Canary screams to her love as he rushes onto the scene, bow in hand. She asks him incredulously what he’s doing, to which Oliver responds that he’s doing “What I always do… saving the damn day.”
And he does.
With one perfectly aimed shot, Oliver manages to temporarily stop the death of the multiverse, placing an arrow on the side of Pariah’s from several football fields away. The arrow explodes and Pariah’s plan is temporarily foiled, blasted to smithereens across the dead planet. But like Tony Stark’s, Oliver’s reality-saving gambit comes at a cost.

One of the Dark Army’s most powerful recruits, Doomsday, has been rampaging across the battlefield. Most of the heroes have been giving him a wide berth, but in the instant Oliver was focusing on his shot, Doomsday was able to get behind him. He lifts his arms up and, with one savage swipe, brings them down on the Green Arrow, smashing him into the stone surface.
Dinah rushes to Oliver’s side, blasting Doomsday away with a horrific scream. As Oliver lies broken on the ground, Black Canary asks him why he would follow her in the first place. With his last breath, Oliver proclaims that he’ll follow wherever Dinah goes. Then Green Arrow, the non-powered superhero who dared to go up against the gravest threat in the multiverse with nothing but a bag of trick arrows, dies.

Unfortunately, Oliver’s sacrifice does not save the universe in the same way Tony’s did. The Dark Army cuts a deadly swath through the rest of the Justice League. Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman are reduced to skeletons at Pariah’s hands, much like Barry Allen once was at the end of Crisis on Infinite Earths. Despite all their bravery, the Justice League and Justice League Incarnate still die.
And yet, hope lives on. Before he could manage to wipe out the rest of the heroes, Pariah was knocked unconscious by the act of Black Adam summoning the lightning of Shazam. The former villain turned hero manages to escape the carnage and flee back to his Earth, where he informs its citizens that the Justice League are dead, thus kicking off DC’s latest universe-spanning crisis event, Dark Crisis.
Now, it’s up to new heroes like Jon Kent’s Superman, Jace Fox’s Batman, and Yara Flor’s Wonder Woman to step up and defend reality. Their task won’t be easy; Pariah is even more determined to destroy existence after his battle with the heroes didn’t end the way he planned. But if they do manage to save the day, to turn the tides of darkness and defeat the nothingness that threatens them, they’ll owe their victory, in part, to that trick arrow. To a hero that was himself till death, that followed the woman he loved and did what he did best in service of a greater good.
To a hero who, even at the very end, was a bit of a smartass.
