If you read this week's Justice League: Rebirth --- or the pre-Rebirth run on JLA --- then you already know that Bryan Hitch's approach to DC's greatest superheroes tends to favor big action. Monsters coming down from space to tear up buildings and eat people by the thousands, literal Space Gods making the Justice League look like a bunch of dorks, that kind of stuff.

When Hitch and Tony Daniel relaunch Justice League next week, though, we're going to see a different side of the team. See, this time, we're starting with a mission of peace, where Wonder Woman heads to a war-torn battlefield to negotiate a cease-fire. And by "negotiate," I mean "smash up all the tanks with a gigantic magic lightning bolt so that nobody can shoot each other even if they want to." Which, I suppose, is technically pretty peaceful. Check out a preview below!
