Has it been a year already? 2017 has reached its end, but before we dive into 2018, we’d like to take a moment and look back. For DC fans, 2017 was a remarkable year in comics, film and TV. Our characters reached new milestones and audiences, our writers and artists achieved remarkable new heights and our universe continued to grow in surprising new ways. And yet, within it all, several moments stood out for their importance and relevance. Some of them were groundbreaking, others were a welcome return. All of them are worthy of acknowledgement and celebration.
The Justice League is great, but there is a whole slew of characters in the DC Universe outside of our good friends Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash and Green Lantern. There’s literally an encyclopedia full of hundreds of them. They range in size, shape and importance.
I have a confession to make.
I’ve only ever been properly afraid—like, really, honestly, genuinely scared—of one super-villain in my entire life. I know, I know. There are so many villains and so many of them are horrifying, sure, but only one of them actually makes me lose sleep if I think about them too much. It’s not the Joker or Lex Luthor, or even someone designed to terrify like Scarecrow. It’s not Zoom, though he could easily hop back in time and erase my whole existence, and it’s not Sinestro who would literally be powered by my fear.
Have you ever had that feeling—I guess you could call it deja vu—where suddenly, for really no discernible reason, you start to wonder just why and how you got to the place you’re in?
