Rucka and Kerschl are joined by Derec Donovan, Cam Smith and Sean Parsons on Adventures of Superman 642 (Sept. 05), the third chapter in the Sacrifice storyline.
We now know that Batman is the one Superman attacked. He tries to explain that he perceived himself fighting Brainiac, or Darkseid, or Ruin.
The Justice League gather, and debate what to do about the possibility that Superman could be controlled again. The Martian Manhunter enters Superman’s mind, and sees that the one who took control of him was Maxwell Lord.
And Lord once again takes control, making Superman suspicious of the other Leaguers. After Wonder Woman departs, Superman attacks, taking out the Martian Manhunter, Hawkman and Green Lantern. The Flash reacts quickly enough (as does Black Canary) to save their lives, but Superman gets the time he needs to escape.
Learning what has happened, Wonder Woman tracks him down, facing Superman under Max Lord’s control as the issue ends.
The story continues in the next issue of Wonder Woman.
