Five years from now, the world of tomorrow is about to be born. Brainiac has arrived from the stars, and intends to take New York City with him as a souvenir. It's enough to bring Superman out of self-imposed exile...but not even the Man of Steel or his former teammates on the Justice League may be enough to stop the alien conqueror.
Only Batman and Mr. Terrific's creation, the artificially intelligent satellite Brother Eye, can defeat Brainiac. But this is the moment that Batman Beyond has traveled back in time to stop--the moment where his terrible future is born.
Can Batman Beyond, Stormwatch, the Justice League Dark, Firestorm and others stop both Brainiac and Brother Eye? Or will the future die along with them?
It all leads up to this, as some of comics greatest talents like Jeff Lemire (JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA), Brian Azzarello (WONDER WOMAN), Dan Jurgens (THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN) and Keith Giffen (JUSTICE LEAGUE 3000) and artists like Patrick Zircher (THE FLASH) redefine the future of the DC Universe Collects #31-48.
