Pariah breaks bad and attempts to end the current version of Earth in favor of his own lost one. The replacement Justice League will go after him and the Justice League will return. We kinda already saw this when Alex Luthor Jr. broke back attempting to bring back his own Earth. Looks like a smaller scale Infinite Crisis.

Yep.

The DCU ended with "Brightest Day". I don't know what the hell anything they've done since is trying to be.

Post of the week!

Earth-1 Satellite era always be my preferred choice though. I wonder if the back issue bins see a lot more business when DC throws crap like this? It sure makes me!

For me DC ends with Rebirth and Doomsday Clock. Batman ends with Tom King's second annual.

But that means acknowledging Flashpoint and New 52-era stuff. Ewww.

So timeline-wise: New 52 starts with Justice League (2011) #0 and the continuity ends with #52 which ends its Darkseid War storyline to bookend the line and the title? From there its Rebirth#1 bringing back the real Wally West and that builds up to Doomsday Clock. Then it gets messy. Doomsday Clock happens before Dark Knights Metal but after Dark Knights: Death Metal? I initially ignored the 'Metal' stuff. After Death Metal its Infinite Frontier? Now from Infinite Frontier to Dark Crisis? My favorite era is DC 1975-1983.

Also, the needlessly adding to the history of evil is getting beyond confusing. Perpetua was assigned by God to develop the multiverse but The Great Darkness infected her so she refused to die like she was supposed to and had three children, two of which are The Monitor and Anti-Monitor. Who is the father? Each 'crisis' is manipulated by whatever this darkness is starting with COIE which includes Zero Hour and Doomsday Clock along with the the three Crisises. Dark Crisis will be the end all,huh? Didn't Death Metal suggest that? Since Doomsday Clock took so long to produce I was not sure which was more important Doomsday Clock or Death Metal. It's funny how much PR is trying to spin the importance of it when it looks like the most easy to overlook.

So, what is everyone getting out of the back issue bin these days? After my last haul of Batman: The Man Who Laughs and Batman: Noel I walked away with Batman: The Gauntlet and Batman: Black & White (1996)#1-4 set this time.

If I acknowledge just pre-flashpoint for Superman, I have to acknowledge the New Krypton and Grounded storylines as the end of Clark's saga, I'd rather have his run end with the end of Tomasi and Jurgens stint on the books.

Having New 52 around is worth putting up with seeing as the Superman featured in it was just a double created by Manhattan and Diana finally realized she never loved Clark truly and moved on permanently from him, which pre-flashpoint never truly resolved.

The last few specials they did also tied up conflicts with Luthor and Sam.

So in Nightwing today, they bring back Risk, aka the Titan that had both his arms ripped off by Superboy Prime in past events only to have him killed off by The Rising

We also learn Jon's group the Truth are bankrolled by Dick

It will be another 30 hours before I get my copy. It reminds me of how Gunhawk returns after all these years and my question of why Gunsmith was created who reminded me of Gunhawk, only for the character to be used as fodder.

I am wondering if the success of one run and outcry from another is enforcing an interlocked story to suckered readers of the successful one onto the other. I will just go to a certain website if necessary, but does it read like a neccessary pick up of Son of Superman#9 or can I just continue from #89 to #90 without a problem?

Nightwing#89 ends on a cliffhanger that leads directly to Son of Superman#9

Crap. Well, my local comic shop owner who reads Nightwing as well suggested to skip it even if it finishes the story. We know Dick will help Jon overcome Luthor and understand that he cannot prevent all casualties.

Also, that gay kiss was unnecessary and it felt like it was there just to irritate us. Didn't know who any of the Son of Superman characters were, but I don't care. I appreciate the meta casual clothes showing up again. It is also notable that Barbara is referring to Haley as 'their' dog's instead of Dick's dog. The stuff contained to Nightwing itself was good,but I did not appreciate the stuff leaking in.

Yeah, it's weird how Babs is located elsewhere in the Batgirls book, yet is essentially co-habiting and starting a 'family' with Dick in Nightwing.

It's also weird that we get the vibes of both books within the pages of Nightwing#89. It tells me that I don't want to read Son of Superman. I wonder if connecting it Nightwing will actually help it with sales if people like my LCS owner telling me to skip it.It is so weird that it's the same writer! I mean my shop owner pointed me to the Justice League/Power Rangers comic I initially overlooked telling me its yet again Tom Taylor but it is good. A writer can have one title that he/she writes poorly consistently but not effect other works. Nightwing 89 seems to prove that. I guess Harvey Dent writes most of the time, but Two Face writes Son of Superman with an agenda.

That's a unique analogy rofl

Joshua Williamson interview



I wonder what kind of Spider-Man writer he'd be? According to him, he grew up in the era of Peter and MJ's marriage.

Why is Justice League vs Legion of Superheroes being delayed? It would be on the fifth issue not the third by May.

Also, is that Dick Grayson and pre-crisis Linda Danvers being featured in World's Finest#3?

Also, since when was Ra's al Ghul 'killed off' again?

I do believe it fits. Besides Two Face did start out as Apollo Kent,but Superman forced his name to change.

Before the pandemic I never heard of either Tom Taylor or Joshua Williamson. Now their names are everywhere.
