    No, he'll be dead but there will still be 300 Batman titles a month watching his rotting corpse. And they'll all be #1.

    Wonder what will happen when so many characters go into public domain ? Could be good ? Could be bad too ?
    Actually it's time to give Justice League a long break, like Marvel did with FF.
    Truly I wouldn’t mind them giving the JL book a break. Book desperately needs a new direction.

    There's only one survivor, yet several heroes involved have solos.

    They may just ignore it. Green Lantern's writer didn't even know about it until it was announced! Though I notice that book isn't solicited for April...

    Okay so some context for those who haven't been reading, at the end of Infinite Frontier Barry goes beyond the known Multiverse and runs into Pariah and the dead remains of Multiverse-2 which died in the first Crisis but has been fed upon by the Gentry/The Empty Hand. But then Pariah disintegrated Barry and remade him on a picturesque world designated Earth.Flash.1.

    That's where the league will be, captured by Pariah and put in their own perfect earths but made to look like they died. I'm confident in this.



    Yah this sounds about right.

    This could be so accurate you should have attached spoiler tags.

    Additionally I'm all in on this epic death event. Would love to see other heroes take front and center for 6 month's or a year and tell cool side stories with the original jl

    This is so ill timed, especially with Wonder Woman. We've just had months...years of Death Metal, rumors of Superman's death, Wonder Woman having JUST returned from the dead, the possibility (rumors) of Hippolyta's death in Wonder Woman. Granted, it could be what some have surmised and they will be simply shunted to another Earth/multiverse, but...enough is just enough.

    Wasn't the whole Death Metal event and lead up to it built around the premise of: "The Justice League has fallen to the Dark Multiverse!"

    Hasn't EVERY goddamn event for the past fifteen years been built around: "This the darkest the DC universe has ever been, but if the heroes prevail, hope will be restored!"

    And how many times have we seen some variation of: "The Justice League is gone! Can these new heroes fill the void and save the day without them?"


    Have we seriously reached a point where the only story DC can tell with the Justice League is "They lost. Again."
    For a team consisting of the alleged "greatest heroes" they sure do fail miserably a lot.

    Creative bankruptcy all around.
    Considering they mention Death Of Supermans anniversary as a vague inspiration, yes, creative bankruptcy all around

    Who knows how much time DC Comics will last at this rate. Sales are abysmal. Which is a shame since Flash is excellent again for the first time in 15 years.

    Can't wait to see what happens when these characters enter public domain. IMO the next generation of comic book creators is going to be influenced by manga and not by american comics.

    the next generation already is. Also, these characters won't enter the public domain. Warner might not be killing it like Disney but once the Discovery merge finalizes and the new leadership takes over they'll start ramping up animations, films and other multimedia to feed HBOMax.

    I like manga but American comics have their value.

    sorry, this kinda off-topic but...

It really depends on their creative freedom. I've found I enjoy most DC writers' indie stuff than their DC stuff. I haven't read anything from Mariko Tamaki, but she seems to be somewhat in position to be considered solid.

    And while I'm a bit out of touch and unfamiliar w/ about 80% of the artists I see on recent solicitations, they still have Reis! And I tend to like most artists or art styles anyway.
    Comics were definitely happier, breezier and more confident in their own strengths before Hollywood and the Internet turned the business of writing superhero stories into the production of low budget storyboards or, worse, into conformist, fruitless attempts to impress or entertain a small group of people who appear to hate comics and their creators. -- Grant Morrison, 2008

    As has been mentioned here before, only the original stories will start fall into the public domain (starting in the next decade). That doesn't mean anybody could start publishing new Superman and Batman stories at that time, however.

    I think people kind of overhype the public domain thing.

    Since this is kind of commemorating 30th anniversary of The Death of Superman, I think it would have been better to do the old switchero and have Superman be the one who survives. At least make it somewhat unique.

    I'm also pretty sure Disney will manage to get laws changed regarding public domain with mickey mouse entering it soon.
