Meanwhile at DC, we got a one-shot… DC Universe Rebirth. $2.99 for 80 pages of HOLY SHIT (Cap was $4.99 for a standard 32-page comic). So what’s so damned special about Rebirth? Well, I’ll tell you…
Flashpoint is explained (putting the season finale for The Flash into perspective). Also, the New 52 is explained, or at least what happened. Whose hand is that? Oh, just you wait…
Johnny Thunder (as a very old man) is looking for the Justice Society.
The Legion of Superheroes are back.
The Atom found the Microverse? Copyright infringement lawsuits are pending, I imagine…
Ted Kord is back and slowly turning himself into the Blue Beetle, while trying to help Jaime Reyes remove the scarab (that turns Jaime into the current Blue Beetle). Oh, and Doctor Fate shows up and drops this little nugget:
And Ted’s just as delighted about that information as we all are.
The Aqualad made popular on the cartoon series, “Young Justice” is back. And evidently gay and has a religious mom.
Wonder Woman has a twin brother named Jason, and Darkseid is reborn and out to find him.
Aquaman proposed to Mera.
Wally West, the original Kid Flash, and later the Flash, is back!
Oh, but I hear you, you really like Keiynan Lonsdale on the Flash TV series and wonder if having a red-headed white kid might be too confusing for fans of the TV show… That’s cool, DC’s got your back:
It’s a little silly, and obviously pandering, but I’ll give it to them.
But THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF ALL OF THIS…
AAAAAAND that explains whose hand that was…
So, Captain America said “Hail Hyrda” on the last page of his comic book, while DC fixed all the stuff they broke with their half-assed New 52 concept. Sure. “Hail Hydra.” What else you got?
I’m actually feeling a lot of hope for the Rebirth of the DC Universe. This has me excited in way that I’ve not felt for comics in a long time.
