A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 214

We’re finishing our look at Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely’s great graphic novel, JLA Earth 2.
Today, we look at the after-effects of the epic meet-up of the JLA and the CSA…
As it turns out, an alternate version of Brainiac (who seemed to be working as Ultraman’s servent) secretly had planned the switch of the Justice League with the Crime Syndicate, using the theory that since the JLA can’t win on the CSA’s Earth, then Brainiac’s plans could not be stopped by the Justice League.
However, the JLA fooled him by basically surrendering and allowing the Crime Syndicate to return to their own Earth, just in time for Ultraman to basically lobotomize Brainiac.
