Sorry Gordon and sorry all of you! DC’s Convergence is starting in April 2015 and appears to be the logical consequence of the reinvention of their multiverse — the crossing over of the multiple universes that make up the multiverse. It sure didn’t take DC very long to get to this point, but I’m certainly up for it!
Before anyone gets to the point of making any backhanded Marvel and DC copying each other accusations, let’s talk about the superpowered elephant in the room. If you’ve been paying attention, Marvel’s updated Secret Wars, starting off in May 2015, has a VERY similar premise — alternate universes within the very expansive Marvel multiverse come together and cross over with each other. Which company had the idea first? We’ll never know and, in my opinion, it doesn’t really matter. If you’re a fan of alternate realities like I am, you’re going to (hopefully) have a great time next spring/summer. And if you hate this conceit, you’re going to save a TON of money in not buying all this.
