Geoff Johns (né 25 janvier 1973 à Détroit, Michigan) est un auteur américain de bande dessinée.

Il est le scénariste vedette de DC Comics, avec qui il est sous contrat exclusif.

Biography

Il commence sa carrière comme assistant de Richard Donner.

Après des débuts peu remarquables chez Marvel où il écrit les Vengeurs, il part chez DC et reprend Flash à la suite de Mark Waid. Défi difficile à relever puisque Waid a fait de la série une des plus populaires de l'éditeur. Mais Johns s'en tire très bien, écrit Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. et arrive bientôt sur Justice Society of America. Il se fait remarquer et la revue Wizard en fait la série de l'année. Après avoir réussi plusieurs fois à redonner de l'intérêt à des personnages malmenés par les auteurs précédents, on lui confie en 2004 la mission de ramener Hal Jordan dans son rôle de Green Lantern. Là encore il arrive à convaincre les nouveaux comme les anciens fans. Il est l'artisan de Infinite Crisis, la suite de Crisis on Infinite Earths, censée relancer l'univers DC comme il l'avait été il y a vingt ans.

Geoff Johns est actuellement le scénariste de Green Lantern, Aquaman, Justice League et Justice League of America.

A series of strange abductions have occurred in Gotham City, Central City, Coast City and Metropolis among others. Video footage suggests that Batman, a wanted, costumed vigilante, is behind the incidents. When a mysterious, burly, cloaked kidnapper abducts a woman, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) arrives to confront the kidnapper and saves the woman when she is dropped from above. Green Lantern then attacks the kidnapper, revealing it to be a monstrous Parademon. The creature defeats Green Lantern soundly, and as he is about to be killed, Batman appears and attacks the Parademon, trying to interrogate it. The Parademon then attacks both heroes. They escape from the city's police and chase the creature into the sewers, where it charges a Mother Box and explodes. Batman and Green Lantern examine the box, deduce that it is of extraterrestrial origin, and decide to ask Superman for an answer. Another Mother Box, supplied by The Flash (Barry Allen) is being studied at S.T.A.R. Labs. Doctor Silas Stone, father of Vic Stone, deliberately misses his son's football game so he can study the box. Arriving in Metropolis, Batman and Green Lantern fight Superman—who has fought a Parademon previously and believes the heroes are working with it. The battle spreads over a portion of the city; it finally stops when Batman calls Superman "Clark". Superman uses his x-ray vision and recognizes Batman as billionaire Bruce Wayne. The three heroes then begin to collaborate. On planet Apokolips, Darkseid orders Desaad to begin an invasion of Earth in response to the superheroes' discovery of his plans.

Offering herself as a hostage, Lois Lane is caught in an aerial confrontation between her terrorist captors and the unpredictable Supergirl before Superman arrives to save the day. Soon after, knowing Superman's civilian identity, Lois attempts to get Clark Kent to make their relationship public despite his fear of the consequences, but their argument is halted by a Daily Planet staff meeting before Kent leaves after being alerted to an approaching meteor. Intercepting it, Superman learns the meteor is actually a robot that he promptly defeats before activating its beacon and taking it to the Fortress of Solitude. With help from a fearful Supergirl, Superman learns the robot is actually a drone controlled by a being named Brainiac, a Coluan scientist who subjected himself to extensive motor, skeletal and cybernetic enhancements, turning him from a human like, thin, and hairless being to a muscular, red eyed giant with computer like components and enhanced physical abilities compatible to Superman's. Supergirl, horrified at seeing Brainiac, reveals from her experience with the monster. Brainiac seized and miniaturized Krypton's capital city of Kandor prior to the planet's destruction with her father and mother attempting to track him down before they mysteriously lost contact with Krypton. She is now worried that Brainiac will do to the world what he did to Kandor.
