DC Comics & Generations: Forged #1 Spoilers & Review: Surprise Iconic Super-Hero Survives For A Teased New Crisis In 80-Page Giant As DC Future State Ends & Infinite Frontier Looms?!

DC Comics and Generations: Forged #1 Spoilers and Review follows.

Surprise Iconic Super-Hero Survives For A Teased New Crisis…

…In 80-Page Giant As DC Future State Ends and Infinite Frontier Looms!

Dominus has manipulated the timelines in the wake of the Dark Nights: Death Metal finale (full spoilers here), but an assortment of super-heroes have been assembled to stop him.

So, Dominus has scattered them through time(s), but his time(s) manipulation includes his own family too!

The meat of the book is Dominus’ villainous forces scattered through the time(s), but they realize that the times they were sent to were destined to die along with them.

So, heroes and villains unite to stop Dominus.

That means attacking him in front of his family, so…

…DC Comic’s first boogey man, the purple gloved Batman, confronts…

…the Dominus clan get a violent reaction from his daughter?!

The rest of the “team” assembles as Dominus world gets some color…

…yet he wants to be alone with his family in black and white.

Due to the battle, Dominus’ idyllic time is shattered…

…his figment family “dead”.

An angry Dominus lashes out at the team…

…as they divide with one group attacking him directly…

…while another tries to hit where he’ll hurt…

…destroying his access to his time-manipulating powers…

…or some such; he’s defeated nonetheless.

The book begins to end with…

…everyone heading back to their timeline homes…

…with their memories intact.

Early Rann, 1983, 1985, 1987, 1993 and 31st Century are visited.

The Great Disaster future is the last stop before Waverider deals with 1939 Batman.

He gets a timeband to be ready for the next “true” Crisis?!

Interestingly, due to the newly coined Linearverse,  this 1939 Batman is the same as the 2021 Batman as everyone ages slowly now; that complicates things concerning the Justice Society of America (JSA) for example.

This is only the beginning of his journey, perhaps, as Generations: Forged ends and…

…a hot DC Comics is teased.

The Pulse:

A jumbled mess story-wise, with what felt like filler pages at many points, compounded by decent, but non-complementary art teams. Was nice seeing the various parts of DC history and returning heroes and villains. Best part of the book was the last page cliffhanger teaser. 4.5 out of 10.
