“Heroes will live, heroes will die and the DC Universe will never be the same again.”
That’s a quite a billing to live up to, but darned if Infinite Crisis didn’t do it (whether that’s an entirely good thing is a debate for another day).
After years of hints and teases, months of lead-in tales and countless dozens of issues, Infinite Crisis arrived — from the first electric issue featuring the dramatic split of DC’s holy triumvirate of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman to the stunning return of the original superhero, the revelation of just who was behind all the chaos gripping the DCU and the culminating battles that cost many a hero — including a couple with an “S” on their chest — their lives.
The result was the most ground-shaking series the DCU has felt since 1985’s original Crisis On Infinite Earths and an absolute must-own for every comic fan.
