    i mean, Johns mentioned a bunch of event sounding things in Doomsday Clock, and while the DCU is hardly beholden to what is basically a self-contained limited series, it shouldn't surprise anyone that they're working on big event comics for the future. At this point, the word Crisis just indicates to me DC wants whatever event it may be to sell.

    I mean, maybe if it means they finally pick a continuity and stick with it, and then lay off the crises for a while...

    ...oh, who am I kidding?

    I'm in wait and see mode. Crisis is a big buzzword for DC and not one that necessarily means the whole "Rewriting the Universe! Everything you thought you knew was wrong!" side of things. Could just be big giant cosmic shenanigans without redoing the entire timeline.

    I thought the whole point of Death Metal and the Omniverse was to get rid of Crises forever?

    What we would even do if we didn't get a new story about continuity every year. I guess someone went mad after remembering his entire history and now wants to destroy the omniverse?

    I never heard that ^^

    They wanted to use Anti-Crisis Energy to defeat Perpetua and portray the Crisis as negative things that power Perpetua, and that the continuity is unknotted so the universe will appreciate all stories instead of rebooting all the time but as far as I remember (and I tend to be 50:50 wrong) they never said they're never not gonna do a Crisis again

    Anyway that wasn't the impression I get from those stories. Just that Everything Matters Now.

    On a different note

    "to explain in part how heroes who debuted long ago remained active for so long."

    STOP
    TRYING
    TO EXPLAIN THINGS

    The more you explain the more question everyone's gonna ask!

    Like how far an explanation can go when you already have
    Hypertime - the infinity of branching timelines
    Omniverse - the infinity of alternate universe
    All working at the same time

    Also remain active for how long? The impression I get from that quote is they're trying to explain Linearverse - the hero from golden age is the same one as today - that's Jurgen's personal playground, are you actually making it the main Earth timeline?

    Why do they always think people need "explanations" for any of that anyway. Does anyone really care about why Batman still looks young. Make good stories and that's it, who cares how long those heroes have been around or "why", "how" or "where" this and that thing from 40 years ago "really" happened.

    This was obviously the intention, but this is DC we're talking about.

    The explanation I tend to gather from fans... what fans want to know... is if the story they like is canon or not, if the relationship and character development they like still count or not

    Not the ages. Nobody care about the ages. Only when we're making fanfic or our own timeline do we want to know approximately where everyone are.

    Consistency in portrayal is more important
