It’s time to get hyped for Reign of the Supermen, releasing next week on DC Universe!
On Wednesday, January 30th, we’ll be gathering to welcome this animated adaptation of the monumental comic book moment in history, Reign of the Supermen! Together we will watch as the world tries to contend in a world without Superman, as four others attempt to fill the void with their own unique codes of honor and fighting styles. We will also be joining Lois Lane as she investigates which, if any, is the true Superman come back to life.
For those who haven’t joined a Watch-Along before, this will be a very special event to make your first. The story of the death and return of Superman is a canonical tale that has affected readers for decades. Share this moment with fellow fans to talk about your own memories of the event, or make new ones by experiencing the adventure for the first time!
If you are a first-timer, do make sure to read all below instructions to better prepare yourself for the process.
HOW IT WORKS
Who: You and your DC Universe subscription!
What: Reign of the Su permen, cued up on your device of choice.
Where: On DC Universe! We recommend two screens to join the Watch-Along: your phone for commenting, and your television or computer for viewing.
When: Wednesday, January 30th, @5pm PST/8pm EST.
Why: Because the community that geeks out together, stays together.
How: If this is your first time, please read the below to prepare yourself for how this will work. We recommend arriving a few minutes early just to make sure you have everything set up correctly.
RULES OF THE ROAD
CAN’T WIN IF YOU DON’T PLAY – You must have a subscription to DC Universe to access Reign of the Supermen.
DUAL-WIELDING – Watch-Alongs are best experienced on two devices: Your phone for comments, and your big screen for viewing.
2, 1 LET’S JAM – Have your clicking finger on the “play” button and ready for action- we’ll all be pressing our sideways triangles simultaneously, at the strike of the hour.
3a) A WRINKLE IN TIME – It is to be expected that some of us will be a bit behind or a bit ahead, depending on how quick on the draw each of us are. Forgive some discrepancy of reaction time.
- CRISP, REFRESHING CHROME EXTENSIONS – If you’re having trouble keeping up with the comments (understandably), there are Chrome extensions out there that automatically refresh the page as often as you program it to. Worth a shot!
We are so excited to have you all share memories, theories, reactions, fears and tears with us and the entire community!
