Today, July 12th, is the last day before everything changes on DC Universe Infinite.
Tomorrow, July 13th, begins ‘Future State’ as the entire DC Universe is flung into the future.
Some characters will only go a short distance into the future while others will go to the end of time itself.
- What will be different?
- What will the world, or worlds, look like?
- Who will still be a hero and who will be something different entirely?
- What new heroes will have emerged?
- What new villains and threats will have emerged?
All of it is about to be answered. I know these books came out in comic shops six months ago but not on here. On here it’s been business as usual with Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg, Green Lanterns and more fighting Lex Luthor, Brainiac, Darkseid, The Joker, Black Manta, Sinestro, The Batman Who Laughs and other iconic villains we all know and love. But that “usual” ends today. Literally. For tomorrow the future arrives and once we see it we can never go back. Never pretend we didn’t see it, or that it didn’t happen, or that it isn’t canon. Tomorrow it becomes real.
I’ve been looking forward to the arrival of the Future State for about 10 months now. Ever since they announced, simultaneously, that the DC Universe was going to be relaunched beginning with Future State, then Generations and then Infinite Frontier and that DC Universe would be relaunched into DC Universe Infinite with books arriving six months after publication. I’m not in a place where I can afford to buy 52 books (it’s always 52, isn’t it!?!) within two months but here, if I’m patient, I can read it all for just 20 cents a day. I’ve been patient. I’ve avoided the spoilers and I’ve literally marked my calendar to count down the days until this event arrived on my screen. I can’t wait to read every panel of every book and see what adventures, stories, thrills, heartbreaks and laughs they have in store for me.
Future State…I’m so ready for you. Let’s do this.
