DC Mystery of 2007...
this should get all our brains spinning. DC released the
following image today:
of an explanation, we got this quote:
the battle cry be heard in the land, a shout of great destruction."
Somehow, it ties in to DC's
major event following 52, but what that
is, no one knows for certain. Dan DiDio has mentioned in
interviews that it would involve the New Gods, who have
been largely absent throughout Infinite Crisis
Couple it with last week's
puzzle in the back of DC books, which revealed what most
of us had already figured out -- the multiverse still exists
-- and things don't so much fall into place as at least
look a little less jumbled.
Okay, triple it, because
not only did a recent issue of Flash - the
Fastest Man Alive reveal that Wally and the other speedsters
could possibly still be alive on Earth-2, that Earth clearly
had other versions of already established characters, such
as an apparently younger Jay Garrick who was still the Flash.
We know Superman's crying,
because in major crossover events, he's the first to weep
like Lon Lopez at one of The Rock's movies. You've got Ion
and the "classic" Wonder Girl, not Troia. A figure
that looks like an Elseworlds Batman could be exactly that,
or it could be someone new. As for me, I'm just happy there
seems to be a place for Mary Marvel, who's currently in
a coma in The Trials of Shazam.
For now, we can all just
scratch our heads, but maybe you can pick out a clue from
our upcoming podcast, which features guest Keith Champagne
talking about World War III.
