DC Comics Plan For Batman: Three Jokers Changed Over Four Years? Is It Even In Continuity Any More? Spoilers!
In the pages of 2016’s Justice League #50 (spoilers here), the culmination of the Darkseid War, it was revealed what the Mobius Chair told Batman in answer to his question about who the Joker was / is.
DC Universe Rebirth #1 (spoilers here) revealed there were Three Jokers.
They even made it onto a fourth print cover.
Here’s a trade dress / text free version of the cover with more of the 3 Jokers art.
After four years, not only did DC finally resolve another plot from Justice League #50 / DC Rebirth #1 involving an empty Mobius Chair…
…with Wally West the Flash as the new occupant per Flash Forward #6 (spoilers here) and the Flash #750 (spoilers here)…
…leading into the upcoming Generation Zero: Gods Among Us.
Well, it also took four years for the Batman: Three Jokers to be solicited!
However, it looks like the Jokers of the new Black Label series look the same, except for facial expressions per the 3 covers to the series, as opposed to more physically different as teased earlier.
The fact this Batman: Three Jokers also begs the question of whether this story part of DC’s core continuity despite starting that way in terms of the teases. As I understand it, all DC Black Label series to date have been out-of-continuity.
