There’s a lot here to discuss, so I’m going to say FULL SPOILERS NOW!!! Next post is the stuff.
Wonder Woman refuses to join the Quintessence instead deciding to forge her own path. It’s a bit unclear what that path is but she refused to join the Quintessence (which was probably a good idea in retrospect). She transforms into her costume from Wonder Woman #770, and we will expect to learn more about her future there.
Next: Wonder Woman #770
Speaking of the Quintessence, they are all dead now. After traveling to Earth Omega, a world they claimed to have contained and stopped, Darkseid who is on Earth Omega kills them. While the details are still incredibly vague, we know that alongside Earth-0, there is Elseworld in the Omniverse, and now an Earth Omega which was black and dark. It seems Darkseid is currently living there and preparing to end the world.
Next: Infinite Frontier #1
Contrary to discussion, Black Adam is NOT changing his name. Some people just view him of as a shazam-like figure and are calling him shaz-adam. But he’s still black adam. (P.S. Make sure your saying it like Shaz-Adam and not sha-za-dam.) Instead, he’s becoming more heroic and took down Brimstone (from New Age of Heroes)
Next: Justice League #59
The Joker has given a joker toxin attack which killed many of the inmates of Arkham. It’s likely very few important rogues died of importance because Arkham is a revolving door, but Bane didn’t make it out. He’s dead now.
Next: Joker #1
Oracle is back and in the watchtower. While Barbara Gordan will put on her suit once in a while, she’s going to be the computer person now.

And that’s everything!!! What teases are you excited for!!! For the spoiler discussion join over here: Infinite Frontier #0 Spoiler Discussion
Really solid work, Nathan! I liked the issue a lot. It made me excited for the future of the DCU, though I wish there was a “Doctor Manhattan changed the DC Universe” moment like there was in DC Rebirth #1 back in 2016.
You got Darkseid at least.
We always get Darkseid!
Though it’s nice to see him back as a big bad. Not someone who would be used for JL Odyssey, but rather THE bad guy of the DCU.
I mean they were dating in Rebirth right? But then didn’t their stories just kinda seperate in Rebirth. So what I was trying to get at, is that their relationship has been reaffirmed.
I never knew they dated.
Thought she was with Green Arrow still.
OH…I meant Green Arrow. LOL!!!
This is why you should have editors…
You probably just overloaded your brain collecting all the info. lol
Oh, you forgot to mention that Roy finally got rid of the hat.
Probably the 2nd or 3rd most important development in the comic!
Damn. How do I miss important stuff like a hat?
Thank you for this!
So, can I ask the members of this thread to confirm…
a) Heroes and villains and everyone remembers everything that has happened in DC history… pre-Crisis, Blackest Night, Flashpoint…?
b) When we read issues…they may be taking place on any number of Earths in any number of “infinite multiverses”… which includes Elseworld…?
c) Future State is…possibly one of these “other” Earth’s?
d) Doe search Multiverse have its own Quintessence, and the ones we saw die were just one?
e) Bane and Alfred…are their current statues on the same Earth?
I had two rather notable thoughts about the newest issue
Elseworld and Earth-Omega
I am excited about this. I am theorizing about what they are, and I’ve drawn the conclusion that Earth Omega will be like Prime, where it is slightly higher (the real world) and more impactful than others. I think Elseworld’ll be a shifting world of chaos, where it alters with weird timelines.
Sentinel coming out
I dont have any issue with this. In fact, I love the possibility of them discussing issues such as the hate that LGBTQ+ community has faced in the past, and the suppression they had to muster. I am, however, worried that they might not pull the arc off correctly. I hope they dont fall into tropes. Not saying they will, its just a concern I face.
Just read Joker #1
So there’s Bane. They don’t outright say it yet, but that’s him- the hulking, un-named bodyguard of the woman who puts the hit out on the Joker.
If that’s bane, then that would be WILD.
