Come April, Justice League will have Lex Luthor as a member, but that's not all as Captain Cold is set to join DC's super team following the events that transpired in Forever Evil.

Justice League #30 hits April 23rd with Luthor, Cold and Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Captain Marvel and Cyborg.

Noticeably absent from the cover: Superman, Green Lantern and The Flash.

Geoff Johns told the AP: "The Justice League is going to go through a lot of changes, obviously, in the wake of Forever Evil. A lot of the blame can be put on their shoulders for what has happened: They were infiltrated and they fought each other and that led to the unleashing of the Crime Syndicate and the evil that took over the world."

And on Lex Luthor: "I think the most interesting thing is that Lex doesn't realize what it's like to be a superhero, what the life is like. You make enemies, they attack you on a personal level. And he's just Lex Luthor. He has no codename, no mask," he said. "He has to deal with the ramifications of that."
