Good afternoon, /co/.
To prepare for Wednesday's rebirth of the Man of Tomorrow, I'm gonna storytime stories leading up to it.
Today's Storytime will include
>The Last Days of Superman
>Justice League #52
>DC Universe Rebirth #1 (select pages)
Part one: >>90220073
Now let's watch some Supercancer.
Back before this storyline was released, the solicits called this story "Super-League".
Skipping over all three of these Storylines, because this recap is enough
and they were shit.
Holding off on Variants, as skipping them allows me to post DC Universe Rebirth #1 in it's entirety at the end of the thread
Honestly I like that Superbro died and we got pre-Flashpoint superman back. It makes Superbro feel like his own character rather than "replacing superman" like every other character in this universe has replaced their previous incarnations.
I kinda feel like it would have been better if they just ended things and had him and new 52 Lois start to show attraction as his story was ending, to show Clark and Lois would always be together.
I agree, one of the reasons that I like Superbro being his own character from this is because then he can do his own things (or rather you can look back on those things he did) without being affected by the preconceived notions of what Superman should be or do.
Considering storytiming New Super-Man sometime in the future, at least after the Multiplicity arc of Superman is posted.
I never thought of trying that before.
I was planning the Superlex issue of JL, but the Rebirth oneshot may fit better. Anybody have preference?
The Superlex issue is included with the first Rebirth AC trade, so I'll save it for tomorrow.
And so, we get to where the Rebirth era begins.
It might be one of my favorite storytimes I've ever done.
Included the whole issue as to better set up the Titans crossover issue.
there were like 5 different storytime threads because different pages got leaked and then DC posted like a 20 page preview and then there was the actual storytime, /co/ was a mess
Why not look back yourself?
The JSA and
Jay Garrickis teased in solicits for the Batman/Flash crossover "The Button" and by Johnny Sorrow's mask in the 6th issue of Justice League VS Suicide Squad.
Legion has been teased via Tom King's Batman (Saturn Girl is in Arkham) and Steve Orlando's Supergirl (Emerald Empress is in solicits).
Ryan Choi's story continues in Steve Orlando's JLA.
Blue Beetle's story continues in...well, y'know.
Continued in Teen Titans and Green Lanterns.
Look to Benjamin Percy's Green Arrow for more "Pretty Bird"
AND HERE is where we get the meat.
Mr. Oz first appeared in the Superman arc "The Men of Tomorrow", watching over the actions of nu52 Clark.
Who could he be?
Green Lanterns is one of my favorite Rebirth Titles. I still can't believe how much crow I'm eating.
This week Humphries is promising to clear up Volthoom's history.
Aquaman's engagement continues where you expect it to.
Direct Currents said it's happening by year's end.
That, and him patching things up with Superdad from the end of the first arc.
Wally and Linda continue in Titans.
Tom King Batman
Simon Oliver The Hellblazer
I'm glad Black!Wally got better after he got away from Vendetti.
The following exchange occurs and is expanded on in The Flash Rebirth #1.
you know, seeing them like this, so friendly, makes me feel weird when reading how close Batman and Superdad are in those Superboy issues.
It's like... it isn't right. I love Superdad, but he didnt earn that closeness with the Batfamily like Superbro. Not yet, at least.
It's still raining.
right, i haven't followed dc in years, but this thread is very interesting. from what i gather, after flashpoint the dc universe was reset with younger heroes and new relationship. this continuity's superman is superbro, but after five years it turns out the reboot wasn't a reboot and the old heroes are still around, like superdad. how is superdad here? also, how old is this event, is it over with a new system in place?
thanks for the thread op
Man, this is a nice retelling of DaRoS.
