Everything we know about DC’s Death of the Justice League and Dark Crisis

The Justice League will die (many of them anyway) leading to a Dark Crisis.

And no, not in an Elseworlds title or Injustice game. Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and more will truly disappear in DC’s continuity.

Although the question of when continuity is.

It all begins April 26 in Justice League #75 from writer Joshua Williamson and artist Rafa Sandoval and serves as the launch of Dark Crisis.

Here is a newly released seven-page preview of this crucial question.

But what Her Dark Crisis? And how does the Justice League die? Readers will have to wait until Justice League #75 for these definitive answers, but for now, here’s everything we know about the plot and its impact at Newsarama.

What led to the Death of the Justice League and the Dark Crisis?

The simple answer to that is everything.

DC calls Dark Crisisevent 30 years ago‘ and Williamson says the concept of killing the Justice League was at least partially inspired by ‘1992.Superman’s Death‘ The story. In short, Dark Crisis looks set to draw on over three decades of DC Comics history, from the classic Crisis on Infinite Earths to very recently. endless border (Written by Williamson) and much more.

In fact, he is one of the main players of the game. Crisis on Infinite Earths who started all the work; Cosmic mad scientist Pariah. As if waking the Anti-Monitor in 1985 wasn’t enough, it will be the villain created by Marv Wolfman/George Pérez who will eventually assemble the team to take down Justice Justice.

Outcast uses Great Darkness as a weapon to bring their Multiverse back from destruction in the new and larger DC Omniverse, dubbed Multiverse-2. The insane Outcast seeks to destroy Earth-0 (aka Earth-Prime or the DCU’s home Earth) in their quest for rebirth and revenge.

Which brings us to our next question:

Who will kill the Justice League?

Dark Army

Thanks to justice embodied (Written by, you guessed it, Joshua Williamson), we know it’s called the supervisor team Pariah will be meeting. army of darknessthe servants of the evil being, the Great Darkness.

The Dark Army consists of the worst villains to ever appear in the DCU; Apocalypse, villain whose actions led to Superman’s death; empty hand, Grant Morrison’s Omniversal Evil From the pages of Multiversity; and Darkseid, who introduced DC readers to anothergreat darkness in 1983.

When will the Justice League die and the ‘Dark Crisis’ begins?

We know that Justice League #75 is coming out on our world on April 26, so when will that be in the DCU? How we have already informedWhile the history of the DCU is now pretty fluid, canonically, Dark Crisis appears to take place in “a bit of the future of the DCU.” But what does that mean?

Recently, the publisher introduced the concept of ‘Omniverse’, a fix for all continuity issues Ever since Crisis on Infinite Earths started unraveling the DC timeline years ago.

Omniverse’s philosophy is that anything published in a DC comic can be considered in continuity for the creators to choose.

What appears to be the likely scenario where the events of Dark Crisis will take place in the near future, but mostly in a bubble from a continuity perspective – i.e. on their own pages and link pages – while life continues normally in the “present” for most dead characters.

So, once Dark Crisis is over, the bubble will burst and the current DCU may catch up with it in terms of continuity and, whatever ramifications it may have for the future, can really begin to reflect in the pages of the ongoing series before long. interrupted by game-changing deaths.

How will DCU progress after ‘Dark Crisis’?

When Dark Crisis was announced, Williamson took to Twitter to tell fans that the story was “”.an epic DCU event on legacy” Indeed, ‘What will DC do after the death of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman?’ an answer to the question. ‘replace them’. The preview image of Dark Crisis #1 is full of old characters, and if other DC books catch up on Dark Crisis, many characters to assume the name and keep the title.

But ‘What will DC do after the Justice League members die?’ There is another answer to the question. This answer is ‘Keep publishing comics about the Justice League’. As we know from the publisher June requestsAquaman, Superman, and Batman are still alive and well in their own books, despite their deaths in April.

See the explanation of how to work the continuity above.

But does this mean that the disastrous events of this crisis mean nothing?

Not.

Like Death Metal: Dark Crisis before it, this continuity approach allows Dark Crisis to tell its own story while continuing to influence the DCU. after that its result.

And not to mention the story Williamson and DC plan to tell in the series itself.

“It’s going to have all the fun, massive cosmic battles and versatile settings, but it’s not about reboots, reconfigurations, or rewriting time and space,” Williamson says. “At its core, it’s about the characters and relationships we see being built throughout DC’s wonderful history.

As Newsarama once detailed, the important thing is “the human element of the story“Dark Crisis has the opportunity to tell a story about mortality and hope that outlasts the death of any superhero.

There will be divisions and togetherness

Dark Crisis: League of Injustice Worlds - Superman #1

Yes.

In June, DC will release Dark Crisis: Young Justice #1, a six-issue limited series set to coincide with the events of Dark Crisis, and The Flash #783 will kick off a three-issue story arc, also set in the same season. main story.. is the only series going (so far) to do this.

Then, in July, a one-shot Dark Crisis: Worlds Without a Justice League – Superman #1 is the first of a series of specials set during the events of Dark Crisis… more or less.

Dark Crisis: Worlds Without a Justice League appears to be stories about Superman and Aquaman set in ‘dream worlds’ – alternate realities where the Justice League characters do not die in the near future of Dark Crisis, but are also different from the current DC continuity. . And this ‘dream world’ could be the key to the resurrection of the victorious heroes in Dark Crisis, and possibly the Justice League’s dead.

And that’s pretty much all we know

DC kept the details of the show pretty tight. And despite the continuity approach, which may be confusing for some more casual DC readers (mainly because DC as a publisher hasn’t officially announced its “some future” scenario), it seems like a pretty straightforward premise.

The DC Universe must learn to cope and move on after the death of its greatest iconic superheroes.

So, the projected sales month for Dark Crisis #7 will likely be months or even December before DC readers find out what the long-term implications of the series are.

Everything we know about DC’s Death of the Justice League and Dark Crisis

The Justice League is going to die (well, most of them anyway) and lead to a Dark Crisis.
And no, not in an Elseworlds title or Injustice game. Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, and more are really going to perish in the DC continuity. 
Though there is a matter of when in continuity. 
It all begins in April 26’s Justice League #75, by writer Joshua Williamson and artist Rafa Sandoval and serves as the launch of Dark Crisis. 
Here’s a newly-released seven-page preview of that pivotal issue. 

Then May 31’s Justice League: Road to Dark Crisis #1 features a roster of writers including Williamson, Jeremy Adams, Brandon Thomas, Chuck Brown, Stephanie Phillips, and Phillip Kennedy Johnson along with artists Henry, Jurgens, Fico Ossio, Emanuela Lupacchino, Leila Del Duca, and more.
Then, finally, Dark Crisis, the main seven-issue monthly limited series by Williamson and Sampere and what the artist calls a “love letter” to the DCU, begins June 7.
You can watch the trailer here:

But what is the Dark Crisis? And how does the Justice League die? Readers will have to wait until Justice League #75 for those exact answers, but for now, here’s everything we at Newsarama know about the storyline and its impact.
What has led to the Death of the Justice League and Dark Crisis?

Justice League #75 (Image credit: DC)
The simple answer to this is, well, everything. 
DC calls Dark Crisis an ‘event 30 years in the making,’ and Williamson says the concept of killing the Justice League is at least partially inspired by 1992’s ‘Death of Superman‘ story. In short, it looks as though Dark Crisis will be pulling from three decades of DC Comics history, from the classic Crisis on Infinite Earths to the very recent Infinite Frontier (written by Williamson) and much more in between.
In fact, it’s one of the main players of Crisis on Infinite Earths that gets the whole shebang started; the cosmic mad scientist Pariah. As if awakening the Anti-Monitor in 1985 wasn’t already enough, it will be the Marv Wolfman/George Pérez-created villain that puts together the team to finally take down the Justice Justice.
Pariah is using the Great Darkness as a weapon to bring his Multiverse – now dubbed Multiverse-2 in the new, greater DC Omniverse – back from obliteration. The mad Pariah wants to destroy Earth-0 (otherwise known as Earth-Prime or the main DCU Earth) in his quest for rebirth and vengeance.
Which leads us to our next question:
Who will kill the Justice League?

The Dark Army (Image credit: DC)
Thanks to Justice Incarnate (penned by, you guessed it, Joshua Williamson), we know that the team of supervillains Pariah will put together is called the Dark Army, servants of the evil Great Darkness entity. 
The Dark Army consists of some of the worst baddies to ever show up in the DCU, including; Doomsday, the villain whose actions led to the Death of Superman; The Empty Hand, Grant Morrison’s omni-versal evil from the pages of Multiversity; and Darkseid, who introduced DC readers to another ‘Great Darkness‘ in 1983. 
When will the Justice League die and ‘Dark Crisis’ begin?

Justice League #75 (Image credit: DC)
We know Justice League #75 will come out April 26 in our world, but when does it happen in the DCU? As we’ve previously reported, while the history of the DCU is now canonically quite fluid, it appears Dark Crisis takes place “a bit in the future of the DCU.” But what does that mean? 
Recently, the publisher introduced the concept of the ‘Omniverse,’ a fix for all continuity issues since the Crisis on Infinite Earths began unraveling DC’s timeline years ago. 
The philosophy of the Omniverse is that everything that’s published in a DC comic story can be considered in continuity for creators to pick and choose from. 
What seems like the likely scenario that the events of Dark Crisis will take place in the immediate future, but will mostly be contained from a continuity standpoint within a bubble – meaning in its own pages and in the pages of tie-ins, whereas life goes on as normal in the “present” for most of the dead characters.
Then after Dark Crisis concludes, the bubble will pop, and the present-day DCU can catch up to it from a continuity standpoint, and whatever ramifications it holds for the future can begin to be reflected in the pages of the ongoing series without actually being disrupted by the game-changing deaths.

How will the DCU move on after ‘Dark Crisis’?
As soon as Dark Crisis was announced, Williamson took to Twitter to tell fans the story was “an epic DCU event about legacy.” Indeed, one answer to ‘what will DC do after the deaths of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman?’ is ‘replace them.’ The preview art for Dark Crisis #1 is full of legacy characters, and should other DC books catch up to Dark Crisis, there are plenty of characters to take on the name and keep the title going.
But there’s another answer to ‘what will DC do after the Justice League members die?’ That answer is ‘continue to publish comics about the Justice League.’ As we know from the publisher’s June solicitations, Aquaman, Superman, and Batman are still alive and well in their own books, despite their deaths in April.

See the explanation about how the continuity will likely work above.
But does that mean that the catastrophic events of this Crisis don’t mean anything?
No. 
Like Death Metal: Dark Crisis before it, this approach to continuity allows Dark Crisis to tell its own story while still impacting the DCU after its conclusion. 
And that’s not to mention the story Williamson and DC plan to tell in the series itself. 
“It will have all the giant, fun cosmic battles and Multiversal set pieces, but it’s not about reboots, retcons, or rewriting time and space,” Williamson promises. “At its core, it’s about the characters and the relationships that we’ve seen built over DC’s great history.
As Newsarama once detailed, what matters is “the human element to the story.” Dark Crisis has the opportunity to tell a story about mortality and hope, themes that last far longer than any superhero’s death.
Will there be spin-offs and tie-ins

Dark Crisis: Worlds Without a Justice League – Superman #1 (Image credit: DC)
Yes. 
In June DC will launch Dark Crisis: Young Justice #1, a six-issue limited series that takes place concurrent with the events of Dark Crisis, and The Flash #783 begins a three-issue story arc that also takes place during the main storyline, the only ongoing series (so far) to do so.
Then in July, there’s one-shot Dark Crisis: Worlds Without a Justice League – Superman #1, that first of what is likely a series of specials set during the events of Dark Crisis… sort of. 
Dark Crisis: Worlds Without a Justice League seems to be stories about Superman and Aquaman set in ‘dream worlds’ – alternate realities in which the Justice League characters don’t die in the Dark Crisis near-future, but also diverge from current DC continuity. And this ‘dream world’ may hold a key to the heroes emerging victorious in Dark Crisis as well as possibly the resurrection of the dead Justice Leaguers.
And that’s pretty much all we know
DC has kept a pretty tight lid on details about the series. And despite its approach to continuity, which may be confusing for some more casual DC readers, (particularly since DC as a publisher hasn’t officially announced its setting “a bit in the future”), it seems like a pretty straightforward premise. 
The DC Universe must learn to cope and move forward after the death of its biggest iconic superheroes.
So it’ll likely be months, and perhaps even as late as December, the projected on-sale month for Dark Crisis #7, until DC readers learn what long-term effects the series holds.
