If they comply with stand on the aspect of justice versus doom, he’ll have the facility to cease Perpetua.

In actual fact, Perpetua may need already calculated this Hail Mary like she did the vote, which suggests the League might be operating head-first into one other entice. Solely time will inform, however after embarrassing the heroes, let’s simply say hope and religion might have dwindled to naught.
