SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #4 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!)

From the creative team of writer Geoff Johns and artists Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #4 sees this diverse team of heroes drawing ever closer to unraveling the mystery surrounding the Secret Society of Super-Villains.

When last month’s issue saw Catwoman being taken prisoner by the Secret Society after a plan to infiltrate its ranks went horribly awry, the JLA’s efforts took on a new sense of urgency. Racing to rescue their teammate, the League traces the Society’s whereabouts to a remote mansion tucked into the hills of Minnesota. Martian Manhunter, Hawkman, Green Arrow, Katana, Vibe and Colonel Steve Trevor mount a full frontal assault on the Society’s headquarters … but it looks like it might have proved to be too little, too late.

After a brief round of questions, the shadowy leader of the Society draws a secret pistol concealed in the handle of his cane and shoots Selena Kyle at point-blank range in an effort to provoke the wrath of Batman! Has the Society just stolen the last of Catwoman’s nine lives? How will the other members of the JLA react? And perhaps more ominously for the Secret Society of Super-Villains, how will the Dark Knight?

Place your bets in the comments section below. We know what they say about cats and curiosity, but it won’t stop us from waiting with baited breath to find out what happens next!

JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #4 is in stores now.
