The outgoing Detective Comics writer and artist will team up with current series scribe Geoff Johns on issues #13 and #14 of the flagship title.
Johns and Daniel will reintroduce classic villain the Cheetah to the DC Universe, a character who is regarded as one of Wonder Woman's bitterest foes.
"I'm thrilled and honoured to again work with Geoff Johns on this Justice League arc," said Daniel. "It's going to be a lot of fun and I can't wait to work on my favourite characters. Justice League is the first book I pull because of the big stories and the great Jim Lee art inside."
DC Comics yesterday unveiled Chew scribe John Layman as Daniel's successor on Detective Comics. His run on the Batman titles concludes with September's issue #0.
Justice League #13 is released in October.
