DC Comics Convergence writer Jeff King had a recent official DC twitter exchange with fans.
It was an interesting and illuminating exchange. King seemed quite candid and excited about the opportunity to engage with fandom.
From that twitter exchanged there were Top 5 big reveals that span Convergence #1 (spoilers here) and the post-Convergence #8 DC Comics multiverse. This follows news that Convergence is NOT the end of the pre-Flashpoint DC characters.
Top 5 Convergence secrets revealed!
(5) Convergence addresses some big DC Comics New 52 fan criticisms
Despite being its own story, looks like Convergence addresses some lingering fan New 52 gripes.
(4) A major New 52 hero dies in Convergence
How long will this death last and will it be a character fans care about?
(3) Heroes from Convergence turn up in Earth 2: Society ongoing series post-Convergence
Convergence heroes have a presence after the series in this new onging title! Wow. Interesting.
(2) Convergence fills in the ?’s in Grant Morrison’s Multiversity Map
We will learn the nature of the following seven (7) remaining Earths:
- Earth 14
- Earth 24
- Earth 25
- Earth 27
- Earth 28
- Earth 46
- Earth 49
(1) Earth 2’s Dick Grayson plays big role in Convergence!
Last seen in Earth 2: World’s End #26 (spoilers here), that leads into Convergence #1, looks like Earth 2’s Dick Grayson is a big player in Convergence. Will he be the new Batman in the post-Convergence Earth 2: Society ongoing series?
This last one isn’t part of the Top 5, but it is interesting to note that the architecture of Convergence has been in the works for several years; not a last minute, haphazard band-aid.
So, what do ya think of the Convergence reveals?
