Marvel have been releasing images for the last few weeks on numerous books hitting next summer and now DC have revealed details of their big crossover event of 2015: Convergence.
According to SuperheroHype : “The series, previously teased at the end of the Superman: Doomed storyline, will reveal that big bad Brainiac has taken cities from both planets and timelines that no longer exist and trapped them in bottles, much like the very famous bottle city of Kandor. The event kicks off when Brainiac takes all of these different cities and pours them into one big dome, hence “Convergence.””
Co-publisher Dan DiDio, speaking about the event, said: “There is a story and a character for every generation of DC Comics fan. We’re picking up at points of their lives where we left them and finding out what’s gone on with them since then.”
Artist and legend Jim Lee adds: “What we’re really addressing is they all exist and have existed and exist within the framework of the New 52,Convergence is in many ways the most meta epic event we’ve done.”
It’s interesting that the DC movies and TV shows have recently been confirmed as being a reflection of the mult-verse as opposed to Marvel’s linear universe.
Convergence will be a forty two-part miniseries and during the nine weeks in which it runs all od DC’s regular books will be on hold. Jeff King will write the core story with help from Dan Jurgens and an outline from Scott Lobdell.
