Lex Luthor finally gets everything he wanted: the powers of a god.

Darkseid, god-emperor of the planet Apokolips, is dead, but his power lives on, seeking out heroes and villains alike to become new gods. What happens when all the abilities of Superman's greatest foe are granted to his second-greatest? That's the question answered by Darkseid War: Lex Luthor, a one-issue story tying into the larger Darkseid War story arc.

We've got six pages of the upcoming comic, written by Francis Manapul and drawn by Bong Dazo, for you to check out below, and — just for good measure — here's the official summary of the story:

Lex Luthor has gained the power of a God, but his one failure continues to deny him the peace he craves—and only a crazed Superman can help him get it!

Justice League: Darkseid War: Lex Luthor #1 will be released this Wednesday, Dec. 9.
