Such is the premise of DC’s Future State: each of these ambitious titles provides a small window into the promise that DC’s future holds, allowing stories to be told the likes of which we could never have seen before. But just because we can see the future, does that mean we’d want to live there? Which of these titles showcase the brightest futures, and which should prospective time travelers do their best to avoid? Wonder no further: we’re here with our state-of-the-art, patent-pending Bleak-O-Meter to determine just how dark each of the futures presented in Future State are, ensuring that you too can be prepared for your next sojourn into tomorrow.
