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 BATMAN ETERNAL #23 yet and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).
Batman may be in the midst of saving the entire city from the stark crazy Hush, but the REAL excitement in BATMAN ETERNAL #23 surrounds Catwoman and her awkward family reunion.
Fans who were online last night got a sweet treat from none other than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder: Our first clear look at the Batmobile. Rugged, yet sleek, with a surprising twin cannon mounted on the hood, it shows influences ranging from the popular Tumbler used in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy to the monstrous tank seen in Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns.
Tomorrow may only be a day away, but when you hit your local comic shop on Wednesday, you’ll be transported five years into the future for the second week of our September event—Futures End.
