Damian Wayne Assembles a Team to Save the Entire DC Universe

Nov 19, 2022 · 18


To stop Pariah's Dark Army in Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths, Damian Wayne assembles a small team for a plan concocted by the young Robin.

A preview for Dark Crisis: The Dark Army #1 shows Damian caught outside the Hall of Justice and in the middle of the battle between Earth's heroes and the Dark Army. He comes up with a plan to stop the army and tries to get his fellow Super Son Jon Kent to join him, but Jon insists he remain on the battlefield and that Damian take a small team instead. Damian decides his team requires transportation, muscle, energy and brains, believing that Sideways, Power Girl, Dr. Light and himself fulfill these four categories, respectively.

The preview finally shows one of DC's newest heroes in action, Red Canary, who appears to accidentally become the fifth member of Damian's team after he saves her life. Red Canary makes her first appearance in Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #3, and is designed by artist Dan Mora, wearing a red leather jacket, ripped fishnet leggings and sneakers, attire similar to Black Canary Dinah Lance. Before The Dark Army, this legacy hero has been seen very briefly in Dark Crisis #3 and Dark Crisis #5.

Dark Crisis: The Dark Army is one of several tie-in issues for the main event, which is set to release its final issue on Dec. 20. Along with Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #7, other issues that remain following The Dark Army include Dark Crisis: Big Bang #1 and Dark Crisis: War Zone #1. The former will explore DC's reborn Infinite Multiverse, while the latter will view the events of Dark Crisis through the eyes of various characters, like Iris West, Linda Park and others.

After Dark Crisis Comes Lazarus Planet and Dawn of DC

As for the future of the heroes comprising Damian's team, plans have only been announced by DC for Damian and Power Girl, while Sideways, Dr. Light and Red Canary's next adventures remain to be revealed. Damian and Power Girl will both appear in the upcoming Lazarus Planet event, which spins out of the Batman vs. Robin miniseries. Lazarus Planet is also a precursor to the yearlong "Dawn of DC" saga planned for 2023, involving the debut of numerous new series for various heroes like Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Cyborg, Shazam and more.

Dark Crisis: The Dark Army #1 is written by Mark Waid, Delilah S. Dawson and Dennis Culver, illustrated by Freddie E. Williams II and Jack Herbert, colored by Adriano Lucas and lettered by Troy Peteri. Main cover art for the issue is done by Gleb Melnikov, with variant cover artwork contributed to by Taj Tenfold and Werther Dell'edera. The issue goes on sale Nov. 22 from DC Comics.
