Title: The Last Author: Rigil Kent Rating: T Genre: Adventure Status: Complete Length: 282,129 Pairings: Superman/Wonder Woman, Batman/Catwoman Summary: All people leave a legacy. For some, it simply has a more lasting impression. A tale of the DC Universe with the Trinity at its heart. Ultimately SM/WW Link: FF.net This is a re-imagining of how the Justice League is founded by Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman and becomes an ever-growing organization of heroes. It starts soon after the events of Man of Steel so it's like Rigil Kent's version of the DC Extended Universe from before those other movies ever came out, adapting story lines and characters from the comics/cartoons. The three first chapters are essentially the equivalent of a Man of Steel 2, Wonder Woman's origin set in the modern day and a proper version of the Justice League movie. As I've said before, I'm not a comic book reader so I don't have a great deal of background knowledge to support me that didn't stop me from enjoying it. A general knowledge of DC would be enough to get you by but I imagine that a comic reader would have better appreciation. There were certainly times when there were clearly references being made that flew right over my head. Each chapter covers a year on Earth - until the multiverse shenanigans - which focus on the pivotal moments for numerous heroes in a world that just gets crazier over time from the influx of metahumans, aliens and divinities. The Trinity gets the most attention but there are plenty of scenes about those related to them as well and others when necessary; Kryptonians, Amazons, Robins, Batgirls etc. It's not often you can read a story which covers such a large expanse of time so it's interesting to see how big the League becomes and how characters develop over in single timeline. You get to see plenty of battles against villains ranging from the street level of Gotham's rogues to the apocalyptic might of Greek Titans. I believe that the writer's strength and preference lies with the latter kind as he's pretty good at describing the outrageous feats of power that DC characters are capable of. Not that I can blame him for said preference since there aren't many fandoms that let you write about that kind of thing as standard. Despite that time-skipping style, there's still an overarching plot regarding certain gods playing the long game and Darkseid casting his long, dark shadow. All in all, it's quite a journey. 4.5/5 rounded up.
