We’re now heading into DC Comics Convergence Week Four. It is anchored by the main weekly mini-series’ Convergence #4 alongside several multiverse-spanning two-shots unlike previous weeks; from Booster Gold to Justice Society to The Crime Syndicate and a lot more.
Before I get to some Convergence spoilers via teaser art / preview, let’s get you caught up on the lead-in issues of the eight week long event series heading into Convergence #4:
- Convergence #0 spoilers here.
- Convergence #1 spoilers here.
- Convergence #2 spoilers here.
- Convergence #3 spoilers here.
We’ve also done some Who’s Who pieces for you concerning the obscure characters that popped up so far in Convergence and are playing large roles. So far, they are:
With that, spoilers and teaser art / preview pages follow.
With this week’s Convergence #4 comes DC One Million’s future Justice League facing off against what appears to the pre-Crisis on Infinite Earth’s Crime Syndicate; essentially an evil Justice League from the multiverse’s then Earth 3.
Here are the pages and art released by DC Comics for Convergence Crime Syndicate #1. You are also teased with the Justice League of DC One Million.
The Crime Syndocate of the pre-Crisis of Infinite Earths era is not to be mistaken with the more recent Forever Evil incarnation. See the Crime Syndicate’s Who’s Who in the DC Universe bio / entry from that time period plus the modern Forever Evil version.
DC One Million was an event spanning the DC Comics publishing line. It’s been collected in an omnibus whose back jacket bio explains it well.
Two of my favorite DC Comics series from the 1990’s (excluding givens like Starman and Sandman Mystery Theatre) where Hourman and Chronos. The former was from from the future and there was a cool DC One Million arc in that book. The latter was actually part of the DC One Million event.
Both series are well worth seeking out at the quarter or dollar bins at comic cons or your local comic shoppe!
Thanks for reading. All feedback welcome.
