The “Darkseid War” arc in Justice League has moved into a phase where the members of the League are becoming gods themselves! Batman has become the God of Knowledge, taking over Metron’s chair. And, in this tie-in, Barry Allen has become the Black Racer, the embodiment of death itself! Can Barry outrun death?

I think this is the full set of Justice League Hot Wheels cars, unless there’s a sixth I can’t remember. It’s pretty easy to tell which one represents Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, and Green Lantern.
The set was among my son’s Christmas haul this year, and for once I found them all in one spot and decided to arrange them. I like the way the fins are used to suggest the Flash’s earpieces and Superman’s cape, and the transparency on Wonder Woman’s car calling back to her invisible jet. It’s also interesting to compare the approaches taken here to the “We Can Be Heroes” Kia cars.

Newsarama has been busy with Flash-related news and interviews over the past few days, and you can find links and relevant snippets here (read the articles for the full details). Some of this information should be considered spoilers, so proceed with caution.
First, they talked to Brett Booth about how Wally West will be handled in the New 52.
Nrama: Let’s talk about what you guys are facing now. We’ve had two and a half years of the New 52 with no Flash except Barry Allen. What’s the biggest challenge about introducing Wally West at this time, with Barry already established?
Booth: I think it will be getting people to accept this version. I know what some people are expecting, I know what I’d want. He will be different, for one thing, in the old DCU he was Iris’s sister’s kid. She has a brother now, so things won’t be exactly the same. The original Wally was from a different time, a very Norman Rockwell sort of place. That is no longer the case for anyone in the New 52. He will reflect that, I’m sure.
DC’s Blog has relased more information on the upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE 3000 #1, coming to your LCS in December. Just follow THIS LINK to get all the latest, including some interior artwork and links at DC’s site to several additional interviews and articles.
Trinity War comes to a high point in this issue of Justice League…but to say that the war “ends” is a bit inaccurate as this leads directly into the upcoming Forever Evil storyline (and all those Villains Month issues coming up). By now, there have been enough interviews with huge spoilers that most fans know how this ends, and who shows up at the end…but in this case it’s “all about the journey”, so let’s pick back up in the midst of that huge battle over Pandora’s Box.
SOME SPOILERS AHEAD
Time to catch up on Trinity War! There are a few things becoming clear in this story arc that spans all the Justice League titles – most especially that there will be long-standing effects on the entire DC Universe from this series. This tale is picking up speed as it goes along, and it is actually improving in quality as it picks up the pace. Let’s start with JLA #7, and then we’ll take a quick jump to JL Dark #23 (Note how the covers are matching up, just as the first three installments made one picture…wonder what the last part of THIS picture will be):
