Earth 2: World's End #23 (HERE BE SPOILERS!)

OK, we're going to do the same thing here as I did with "Batman Eternal," because I just can't take it anymore.  All at once now!

Green Lantern is now with Kara, Lois, and Val fighting off Apokolips and uses his remaining power to blast a whole through the shield around Earth, allowing a fading Kara and Val to get a boost of power from the sun.  (Clever, Alan.  Clever.)  Jimmy apparently has all sorts of New God powers, but doesn't seem to be using them; here, he just opens a Boom Tube from Amazonia so that he and Dr. Crane (and, unbenownst to him, Barda) can escape to Atom's Haven.  Sato tells Mr. Terrific that his ship for 100,000 people needs to fit 2.5 million.  That's about it.

The one thing that I don't get, at this point, is the codex.  Thomas tells Helena that they have to keep it safe so that they can rebuild Earth if they manage to escape.  Is that the long game?  They escape, Darkseid moves onto somewhere else, and then they rebuild the planet?  I guess we'll see.
