The Season of Mists: Prologue wiki last edited by Billy Batson on 06/29/13 06:14AM View full history

In this prologue issue to the acclaimed “Season of Mists” storyline, Destiny learns of drastic changes on the horizon within existence and calls a meeting of his family, the Endless. But the gathering turns ugly, setting the stage for a tumultuous road ahead for the eternal family.

'Season of the Mists: Episode 0', AKA 'Season of the Mists: Prologue' opens with Destiny walking through his garden. There he encounters the Grey Ladies who tell him, "A king will forsake his kingdom", "Life and death will clash and fray", "The oldest battle begins once more", "And all these things have genesis here in your garden". Consulting his book, he realizes he must call a family meeting of The Endless. The siblings' dinner conversation is less than pleasant, and sets into motion a number of events.
