As many of you know, today marks the release of INFINITY MAN AND THE FOREVER PEOPLE #1, the debut issue of the newest ongoing monthly comic to join The New 52. However, there are likely just as many of you scratching your heads. The Baldaur siblings and their crew are great characters, but they’re not exactly Batman and Superman. So why don’t we lay the groundwork for you? If you’re new to the world of Infinity Man and the Forever People, here are five things you should know.
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read JUSTICE LEAGUE 3000 #2 and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).
Before the newly formed Justice League can figure out what happened to their memories, the Cadmus Corporation controlling their mission sends them into the darkness of Commonwealth space. And it’s not just their memories that seem half-formed. Their powers aren’t exactly what they remember them to be, either. A Superman that can’t fly? A Green Lantern without a ring?
When new weekly series THE NEW 52: FUTURES END was announced last month via the ASSOCIATED PRESS, not many details were revealed. Fans learned that characters Batman Beyond, Frankenstein and Firestorm, would be involved and that the story would take place 5 years from the current DC Universe storyline.
