FINAL COUNTDOWN

So what is "Countdown" counting down to anyway?

The name I'm given is "Final Crisis."



Is anyone surprised? 2008, seventy years of Superman celebrated with the last Crisis.

and after that: "Aftermath of Final Crisis" 52 issues weekly series which leads into "Final, Final Crisis" which is really the final crisis until the next one.  Wink

Sure is sounding like the kid that cried Crisis - instead of wolf.

Y'know what happened to that kid, right?

He got ''et'.   Grin

    This is what i have been thinking.  Here is hoping that when it's over DC has an infinite multiverse again.  Or better yet a DC Megaverse.  A megaverse being a collection of a nigh-infinite number of multiverses.  Basically hypertime, if it were done right.

     Or maybe DC is learning from its mistakes.  Didn't DC tend to claim that every major reboot/retcon/crisis would be the last?  That once they redefined their universe (& its continuity) that they would stick to it?  Readers have very little reason to be loyal if the continuities they follow continue to be constantly discarded.

Darn! I thought it be another 20yrs until the next CRISIS! Though I like the idea of 2 TITANS books & that Cable sketch was pretty sweet. Real Liefeldish..

When is Marvel going to latch onto this and do Ultimate Final Countdown?

Eventually, "Infinite Final Crisis on 52 Earths".

Seriously though (if it's at all possible to take this sort of thing seriously), it's pretty shameless the way DC is capitalising on this with this frankly silly number of related titles.

Clearly DC with its Crisis stuff and Marvel with all its Civil War spin-offs are in hard competition, but have they already forgotten how they glutted the comics market with alternate covers to redundant first issues of Spider-titles and such back in the mid-90s and how they subsequently suffered for it and lost a lot of readers? They're making a fast buck now, but they can't string it out for three years, if that's their plan.
