The stunning conclusion of “Gothtopia”! Batman discovers the terrifying secret behind this brave new world.
PANDORA Sees the Light
Turns out light is even more powerful in the DC Universe then we knew. Of course DC's already got the Lantern Corps, wielding weapons that use light manifestations of the most powerful emotions. And now Pandora is going to start embodying all the light in the DC Universe, to combat the new villain Blight (the manifestation of all the evil in the Universe) as an anti-Blight of sorts.
"When Pandora’s journey began in The New 52, she seemed to being living an immortal existence of pain and torture for releasing the Seven Sins into the world," writes DC Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras in DC's latest edition of 'What's New in the New 52.' "But following the events of 'Trinity War,' The Outsider made her realize that her Box actually came from Earth 3, and for the first time, she considered the possibility that she may not have been solely responsible for unleashing all of the evil and tragedy that came after her Box was opened.
"Thus, in her fight against Blight, she self-actualizes and connects with the spirit of light. But will that be enough to take down a force as powerful as Blight? Either way, Pandora is determined to redeem her name and prove that no matter what you’ve done in the past, you can still do good and become a hero."
Pandora's new look (seen here in artist Julian Totino Tedesco’s design) debuts in January's Trinity of Sin: Pandora #7, and DC reports she'll continue to light things up with the new look throughout the Forever Evil: Blight crossover storyline.
