DC’s violent antihero Peacemaker – specifically the John Cena Peacemaker – will storm several comic book covers coming in January 2022.
Related to the upcoming HBO Max Peacemaker The series featuring Cena, DC has commissioned seven artists to create stunning Peacemaker illustrations that will be released as variant covers of multiple DC Books from January 2022.

Originally created in the 1960s, for a time Peacemaker was best known as the inspiration for comedian Watchmen, but saw renewed interest with his appearance in The Multiversity: Pax Americana and the aforementioned film The Suicide Squad.
