Convergence Week Four promises big things with Convergence #4, Grant Morrison’s The Multiversity #2, and the most important two-shot mini-series Convergence: Booster Gold #1 all hitting stands today.
To prepare to for our spoilers and reviews of all three DC Comics titles, let’s get you caught up on the lead-in issues of the eight week long Convergence event series:
- Convergence #0 spoilers here.
- Convergence #1 spoilers here.
- Convergence #2 spoilers here.
- Convergence #3 spoilers here.
In addition, as some obscure characters have popped up in the Convergence weekly that are playing large roles, we’ve also pulled some Who’s Who together for you and they are:
Alrighty then, spoilers and reviews follow for Grant Morrison’s The Multiversity #2, Convergence Booster Gold #1 and Convergence #4!
The Multiversity #2 Spoilers and Review
Ok, the Multiversity #2 was difficult to follow, but opens with the infected / vampiric Monitor now “Super Judge” and a Cosmic Rubik Cube with the fate of the multiverse at stake. The Monitor is freed of his evil bonds and now is on the side of the light.
However, the Justice Incarnate, yes that’s the multiverse’s Justice League’s name, find out someone else has been behind the evil Gentry from the Multiversity #1.
Good guys win. Multiverse is saved. Multiverse 2 is referenced as this being’s previous victim; I guess that makes the post-Flashpoint DC multiverse – formerly the DC New 52 – Multiverse 3? And this all supposedly ties into Convergence.
I welcome other explanations on what happened in this issue and how it ties into Convergence. 🙂

The book opens with Telos and Earth 2’s Dick Grayson conversing after the death of the Earth 2 Batman Thomas Wayne. Telos seems conflicted about what’s transpiring.

That anticipated party? Brainiac in a giant t-sphere!
It all spills into Convergence #5 which is billed as Brainiac vs. Telos! Here’s the main cover to Convergence #5 and the variant cover featuring Brainiac vs. Telos sans logo!
