DC’s ambitious Rebirth event is still unraveling, and the company is using the framework of introducing the Watchmen to this world as a way to take some major strides toward reconciling the splintered continuities that have developed over the past few years. Case in point: We finally have a Superman that should make everyone happy.
The world of Batman Beyond took a major turn in the wake of DC Comics’ Futures End event, which ended with Tim Drake taking up the mantle. But Terry McGinnis is finally back in action — and his relaunched story looks to bring a DC heavyweight to Neo-Gotham.
Tying in the characters and events of Watchmen to the larger DC Comics universe was the big secret and big reveal when the line debuted earlier this year. Then … nothing. Now it sounds like this crossover is about to start making a bit more sense.
Marvel Comics has turned the non-reboot “reboot” into an art form these days, and DC Comics co-publisher Jim Lee has opened up to provide some additional context about the publisher’s ongoing Rebirth relaunch.
With Marvel enjoying some renewed critical and sales success coming off the All New, All Different relaunch, DC Comics is also gearing up for its own semi-reboot — and the spirit of the idea might owe a debt of gratitude to a galaxy far, far away.
