Reimagining the Golden Age in Wonder Woman: Earth One

When it comes to comics history, there aren't many things stranger than the stories that exist for heroes that got their starts in the 1930s and ’40s. There are obviously a lot of reasons for this—comics were a brand new medium and superheroes were a brand-new concept, things like continuity and shared universes didn't exist—you get the idea.

On Earth One, Alfred is a Badass

I absolutely 1,000% adore the Earth One line of standalone graphic novels that DC has been publishing since 2010. It provides consistently refreshing takes on some of the company’s most beloved characters. Now, I know you might be thinking to yourself that this same thing can be accomplished by a good, old fashioned reboot or the welcoming of a new creative team onto a title—and you are definitely not wrong. What Earth One does that a standard reboot can’t do is tilt the perspective with which the character is approached.

Revisiting Superman: Earth One

The year was 2010. Fanboys and fangirls were living in a whole new world. Thanks to Iron Man, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, comic book movies were finally stepping away from being laughable participants in the film industry and becoming true Hollywood blockbusters. It seemed like comic book characters were suddenly being embraced by the public with open arms all over again (similar to the half-rise in comic book movies that sprung up after Tim Burton’s first Batman film).

5.2 Reasons We Love the Multiverse

The idea of what could have been always intrigues. It’s literally the basis of fictional storytelling. Those magic words: what if?

What if a stranger visitor from another world came to Earth and our yellow sun granted him amazing abilities far beyond that of normal man? What if a young boy with unlimited funds and resources saw his parents gunned down in front of him and began a never-ending quest for justice? What if a dying alien gifted a young pilot with the most powerful weapon in the galaxy?
