Convergence to Bring in The INJUSTICE Universe

by Davey Nieves

Today Entertainment Weekly revealed the solicits for the first four issues of the nine part Convergence event from DC Comics. The event will bring together the pre-52 universe with just about every part of the DC Comics multi-verse. Perhaps the most interesting part of the solicit was the inclusion of the popular INJUSTICE universe.  A universe that was created in part with the 2013 award winning fighting game Injustice: Gods Among US. It’s a world where Superman was driven mad by the Joker resulting in the death of his city and family, causing him to take over the world, only for Batman and a team of rebel heroes to rise up against him. The DC Digital series that came with the game is among the publisher’s boldest stories and month in and month out feels like just about anything can happen. It’s looking like every part of the DC Multi-verse could be part of the event. The possibilities could also include the Arkham game universe, Batman 66, maybe even make the daring choice to play with film and television characters.

The Injustice universe will be one of the worlds at stake, along with the likes of Crisis, Zero Hour, Elseworlds, and the pre-New 52 DCU. This nine part mini-series sees the villain Braniac bottle the cities of forgotten worlds and Vince McMahon them into battling each other in his own personal dimensional elimination chamber. Here’s the solicit for issue 1-4

  1. To me, this reminds of “Superman: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?” meets “Superman/Batman: Public Enemies” & “Superman/Batman: Vengeance” with the later “Countdown Presents: The Search for Ray Palmer” & “Countdown Presents: Arena” the reason I’m pointing it out is that DC is really recycling ideas that sound good, but have a tendency to retcon what they choose to be important over events that have happened all ready. More or less, Flashpoint happened but, everything you know is different and new; but a new Brainaic from Hypertime – one we’ve never seen – is able to breach realities of different era’s and make them fight. And somehow at the end of this it’s connected to “The New 52! Futures End.”
