THE NEW 52: FUTURES END will take us five years into the DC Universe. It will also involve a time-traveling Batman Beyond and the first issue is on sale May 7. While solicits are available up through June's issue #8, DC has given us the low down for what's happening in issues 9-13.

Why did it have to be Green Arrow who was killed? Why couldn't have been Superman? Does anyone know who Emiko is? And I am really glad there will be more Frankenstein.

Superman is already dead as is pretty much all of the Justice League

He uses weaponry that was obsolete 500 years ago. Inevitable in retrospect.

Emiko is Shado's daughter and Green Arrow's half-sister.

@saren: still his trick arrows could have kept him going for a while longer, and thanks for the info about Emiko

What's the deal with that advertisement in the background? The one about Mr. Terrific (I guess)?

this looks more and more interspersing every solicit.

Why is superman wearing a mask ?

Posted by InkInk

This book looks terrible. It's just DC's attempt and a longer and more depressing Age of Ultron.

Posted by KnightofSteel

I haven't signed up for this series yet, but with the top notch artists onboard this book...damn, it'll be hard to ignore.

Edited by CaptainMarvel4Ever

Gotta say, at first I didn't want to read Futures End, but they have some really good writers attached to this series. Now this is something I'm actually really looking forward to.

Posted by RaggedScarecrow

Might pick this up in trades depending on how it reviews. Definitely not grabbing individual issues, that's way to expensive and I'm not convinced the story being told here is better than 4 of my regular monthlies.

Posted by kilowog52

Fury and Emiko? I'm pretty sure by Emiko they mean Green Arrow's half-sister from Lemire's run on that book. But who is Fury? Could they be talking about Earth-Two Wonder Woman's daughter? Does anyone know any other Fury DC has?

OLLIE DEAD? NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

But I will say...I have not been interested in this series much at all but these solicits have somewhat made me curious...I may get it.

@red_vibe: cause superman died once before and it was like a big thing that people didn't like. and come on its green arrow, he has no superpowers, he's most likely to die

I am so confused...what's the purpose of this series? Is it going to reboot everything that happened in The New 52? Is this an official future that is happening? I am so lost...

I added this to my pull list when it was first announced. Definitely excited for this!

I think it's supposed to be the future that happens but Batman Beyond goes back in time to change it.

Edited by cagedleo730

@transformers1024: There won't be a reboot for more years to come. This will be DC's version of Days of Future Past stretched out weekly.the end game is unknown.

Everything DC has done since New 52... it's like they're trying to break up with me.

Posted by Dernman

That may not be Superman but I like the costume. Maybe that could be something he wears in space even though he doesn't need to breath.

I saw some art from what I think was either a #0 or #1 issue that didn't get me that excited, but the solicits and descriptions of the series get me really pumped.

It will be a mess.

Not really helpful when FS can turn them into yogurt mid flight.

Is Rampage a dude now? Or is that meant to be a woman?

@brothereye: That is a chick, just a very very roided out one.

Cool, thanks for the answer. I thought it was a she since I know the character but it was a bit difficult to tell with that cover. Mind you, I suppose that's the point in being so roided out.

Looks like LOSH's Monstress fighting Wildfire. o.O

so does this mean that terry is now apart of earth prime time line and is different from the terry in justice league beyond?

Yes. This is a Terry McGinnis who comes from Earth-Prime's future. This is not the same Terry from the DCAU.
