Dan Abnett’s having quite a week, what with that movie based on his work coming out this week and me never letting anyone forget he wrote Conspiracy 16 years ago. But those are both in the past, and it’s time to look to the future, baby!
But why stop at tomorrow? Let’s look at tangents and parallels, too. That’s the idea in Infinite Crisis: Fight for the Multiverse, the comic tie-in to the MOBA Infinite Crisis. There are many worlds, and lucky them, they all have their own versions of DC’s heroes. Unfortunately, they also have the supervillains, which is bad for the worlds, but great for you, the reader.
So now that you know that, you’re ready to watch a Monitor, one of the custodians of the multiverse, try to stave off a threat that could consume all worlds. Which, c’mon, would be a huge bummer. It’s one thing when you come home, and you’re like, “Aw, man, my Earth is gone because the whole universe dissolved.” But to know that happened to every other iteration of existence in all possible arrangements of matter? That’s…that’s just depressing.
You can help avoid it, though! Read the preview below and then DC will keep printing this comic, sustaining these realities for years to come.
Read the rest now in Infinite Crisis: Fight for the Multiverse!
Brendan McGinley is editor round these parts when not writing comics or Cracked columns. You can say a neighborly hello to him on Twitter @BrendanMcGinley. You’d probably enjoy his supervillain comic Heist, if you’re a fan of tarnished souls and brutal retribution.
Seems like there’s a different version of Doomsday everywhere you look. Like when The Center Cannot Hold in next week’s Action Comics #34.
