The DC Universe will be experiencing a Final Crisis next year, with a crossover series that appears to be the end of the Crisis on Infinite Earths > Identity Crisis > Infinite Crisis chain. Now, given the fact I was kind of disappointed with the results of Infinite Crisis (aside from 52), what could make me interested in this one?

It’s going to be written by Grant Morrison. Well-played, DC…well-played indeed.

Final Crisis

Maybe I’m reading too much into this, but the characters pictured above — from left, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Superman, Hawkman, and Batman — are all close to the original Silver Age Justice League of America. Everyone except Hawkman was in the original lineup, and he was one of the first ones to join. So where’s the Atom, Aquaman, and Martian Manhunter? (Okay, so right now Ray Palmer’s Atom and the original Aquaman are indisposed, but I don’t think it’s a good sign for J’onn J’onzz.) Just as long as we don’t get Snapper Carr (“Snap, snap!”). šŸ™‚
