A thread to compile the most shocking moments in DC Comics
The Death Of Superman in 1993! At the time I thought DC comics really killed off our beloved hero!
I honestly didn’t think he would come back, so at the time it was the most shocking and upsetting. Brilliant moves on their part!
Oh that one was nuts!! I mean, it was before my time, so I knew he came back, but it was obviously a shocker for sure!
Lex Luthor being terrible when he stole 40 cakes.
Kind of a thread that invites spoiler discussions doesn’t it?
Strange Adventures reveals plenty of big secrets but I think #11 might be my favorite because it’s Alanna confronting him on his biggest lie yet. What happened to their daughter? I thought he was horrible by then, but it was this moment that shocked me.
Jason Todd’s death and return. Regardless of how you may feel about it personally it was something big in terms of comics history.
I’m sure there are more I can’t quite recall right now, but the ones that come to mind first are:
DC Universe: Rebirth #1 – Batman finds the Comedian’s button
Batman: Endgame – Eric Border is revealed to be Joker
Three Jokers – Joker’s wife and child are still alive
Injustice – Alfred kicking Superman’s ass
Oh but it was such a highlight of the series istg
Absolutely! Shocking in the best possible way

The story of the chain mail vest in the batcave. Get it? Because the guy was electrocuted? I’ll see myself out.
Robin just painted arrows on all the doors for you.
What color are they because arrows of a green or red variety would be a bit confusing in the bat cave?
most shocking moments
hmm would death in the family fit as one ?
No, they telegraphed it was 50-50.
They are yellow with green and red bats all over them.
