(Princess Evila'd had her turn.)

The man who hated the savior of the world faced him.

Elsewhere, there were two others who hated the savior.

" You wanted something to destroy the dragon, General.. "

They were somewhere dark. )

They faced each other in her apartment.

The enemy faced the hero.

" What is this all about? "

" What it has always been about, Peter Cannon-

" Power. "

Her lips curved. )

He awoke in her New York, out of a demon tempting and into her appealing as she had before.

" I see a power in you that perhaps you do not fully see yourself.

" A power whose limits you have not fully discovered.

" Channel it in the proper direction, Peter-

" And you could rule the world! "

" Really?

" Uh.. how do you know I haven't already? "

He smiled disarmingly. )

He had overt ones, like the guy who tried to kill him with a dragon.

He had ones less so, like the Hooded One and Princess Evila.

They were working behind the scenes.

Their plans were less immediate. )

There were men who, in secret, wanted to kill the dragon.

There was a man who, on his own, wanted to kill the dragon.

One day, he had the weapon to do it with.

He had what he'd invested himself in making. )

Peter Cannon was the dragon he'd saved the world from.

There were those in the world who knew the dragon as a monster and hated it.

There were those who also hated the effects of the dragon.

They sat together. )

“The perplexing thing is Kingdom Come was supposed to be a cautionary fable. It was supposed to be like, “This is what happens when you go down a very dark road. It ends up very badly.” It seems like a lot of people only took the first part of that message, which is, “Oh, look at the cool stuff in Kingdom Come.” No! No, no! Lois Lane is not supposed to die. Superman and Wonder Woman are not supposed to be a couple.

It’s kind of fascinating to me to see some of the wrong lessons learned, but some of the right lessons, too. I love the fact that Kingdom Come managed to elevate Wonder Woman to the “Trinity” level. It wasn’t just Superman and Batman anymore. I’m proud of what we accomplished, but every once in a while I think, “Oh, you learned the wrong lesson there.”

Dan Slott: In Amazing Spider-Man we’re going to see The Daily Bugle and the Bugle cast come back in a big way. And, no, it is NOT about Peter becoming a photographer again. It’s a new twist. It’s something we haven’t seen in Amazing Spider-Man yet. After 55 years, that’s a pretty cool trick, right? And it’s a development I’ve been dying to get to for a long time!

The upcoming AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #789 starts a BOLD NEW DIRECTION in the life of Peter Parker. Who looks like a very young Martin Landau.

The following is one page from Justice #8. To catch you up-- the world is in massive danger, the villains have united, the heroes are at their lowest, everything is really bad. And then Elongated Man decides to have a quick word with Plastic Man...
