If you’re relatively new to the world of DC Comics, you may not be familiar with Midnighter, the black-clad vigilante that first made his debut in Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch’s Stormwatch.
With a new year on the horizon and the holidays upon us, it’s a good time to take a look back at 2014 to remember and remark upon a few of its key DC Entertainment moments. Some of these moments played out on the comic book page or the screen, others were real-life happenings that shaped what we’ll be reading and seeing over the years ahead. If you’re a DC Comics fan or just an entertainment fan in general, they all mattered. It’s been a great year full of both ups and downs, but these are the big ones. These are our DCComics.com “Ten Moments that Mattered” for 2014.

This week we hit the halfway point of Futures End, our September event that sees all of our monthly New 52 titles flash forward five years. Over the past two weeks, we’ve been given glimpses of what the future may hold for some of our biggest heroes, including Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Green Arrow and more. Futures End has brought us no shortage of shocks, twists and surprises, but just for fun, we’ve decided to list off seven of the biggest, most unexpected and flat-out coolest. These are the ones that had us grinning in that way that only really good comics can do.
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read GRAYSON #2 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).
Dick Grayson’s new life as an international spy continues!
In the opening issue (GRAYSON #1), we learned Grayson is secretly working as a double agent for Batman! Posing as “Agent 37” at the spy agency, Spyral, Grayson is actually teaming up with Batman to spy on the organization as it spies on fellow superheroes. Talk about a top-secret mission!
Usually finding yourself doomed twice in the same week would be a cause for serious concern rather than celebration. But then again, none of us are Superman. (No, not even that guy who keeps emailing us asking for an ongoing Beppo, the Super Monkey series and signing his emails Clark “Superman” Kent. Sorry to disappoint you, dude.)
