    With the final issue of the weekly event series, Jeff King, Scott Lobdell and a cadre of artists have altered the face of the DCU.

    So the faded images behind each Earth represents the old continuity/version of that Earth and the new images in front of each Earth represent the new continuity/version of that Earth.

    DC basically just said goodbye to everything that existed prior.


    I'd be interested in stuff from the Victorian era world, the cowboy-esque world (upper right corner of the first page, with Buffalo headed Superman), the Freedom Fighter world and the Blue Beetle world.

    The main DCU, the new 52 world, holds no interest anymore.

    This seems like a roundabout way to bring the multiverse back into play, although I'd say Multiversity did it better.

    So have they just gotten rid of all the Pre 52 versions of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman then? And the classic Justice Society? Isn't this exactly what we didn't want?

    If the original Crisis was undone then doesn't that mean the post-crisis world wouldn't have happened and the pre-crisis world would have remained? DC really do like to make things confusing with all these crises and such. Thankfully for the most part the DC You stuff sticks with the current continuity, continuing stories like Grayson, JL, etc.

    Why not just have all of the worlds exist?

    Yup, that seems the only way to interpret that. How sad.

    Making it more of a mess ? Yeah Multiverity did that.

    They have 7 earths to play with, they couldn't put them somewhere in those?

    Yes, it was not enough for DC to "New 52"-ize the main universe, they had to do it to the whole multiverse as well now. The old...gone.

    Doesn't this whole event just screams "ha-ha" to Marv Wolvman and co that did the original COIE and Post Crisis adventures ?

    I mean didn't they just throw away all those stories of COIE ?

    Okay... let me see if I understand this properly: Convergence merged the previous pre-COIE Multiverse earths with the current The Multiversity Multiverse earth counterparts? Yeah... that's not confusing at all.

    It looks like they threw away every story that came before the New 52

    Better late than never.

    They should have done a fresh restart post-Flashpoint.

    Plus if COIE didn't happen, then the set up for The Darkseid Wars makes no sense: Justice League #40 makes a specific reference to COIE!
