Johns just can't seem to get through the day without blood being spilled can he? More Earths, more angst, more gore. What was all that about the Iron Age being over?

I've got a sinking feeling that crying Superman means Lois is gonna be the next refrigerator girl. DC's got a death-list, checking it twice.

Today, I read Ion #10. This miniseries is a precursor of a multiverse to come....

Lets back up and I'll start again. Mr. Majestic, a Wildstorm hero, guest starred in Superman stories before returning to said universe. Last year, Will Pfeifer wrote "Captain Atom: Armageddon" incorporating Captain Atom into the Wildstorm Universe. Since Captain Atom's DCU return, he's wearing armour worn previously by Monarch, a villain from Armageddon 2001.

Spoilers...

"So many worlds. Why shouldn't they all get a chance to live?" - Captain Atom   

Ion #9 ends with Kyle Rayner's struggle with two unknown antagonists from an alternative Earth. These assailants are from the Tangent Universe, Earth-97. Subsequently, Kyle is defeated. Now in Ion#10, he appears in an unknown void. Turns out, it's actually the Bleed, a space between universes. The Bleed first appeared in Warren Ellis' Stormwatch and was further explained in his Authority series. This bit of information is explained to Kyle by none other than Captain Atom/Monarch! Seems, he is able to traverse the Void and even battles Wildstorm's cruel Daemonites. So, the new multiverse appears to adopt the Bleed.

Another interesting note, there appears to be rules to alternative earth crossovers. Two young boys are in the Bleed before Kyle's arrival. After Kyle's in the Bleed, three Tangent heroes are present in DCU. Tangent Green Lantern  begins to use her Lantern to form other Tangent heroes in DCU while DCU people disappear. However, Kyle stops her, bringing back the kids and himself; while the three Tangent heroes disappear. There may be a correlation between those coming and going between universes. They swap out. I'm not sure if this rule only applies to Tangent characters or not.

tidbits

The Monitors were introduced in Brave New World. Captain Atom knows they exist and tells Kyle the Bleed is a place the Monitors cannot see into.

The Guardians send Kyle to Sector 3388 where he finds an asteroid base with massacred Qwardians and Donna Troy.

Somehow it seems like it was all much simpler back before Crisis on Infinite Earths...

It seems to me that the new Multiverse will include Tangent, Wildstorm, & All-Star universes.

There's a reason it was called Infinite Crisis.  It's going to be one long never-ending perpetual mega-crossover event.
