Script for Dark Days: the Forge Names All of Jim Lee and James Tynion’s Immortal Men

Posted by November 29, 2017 Comment

So, The Immortal Men by James Tynion and Jim Lee has been delayed well into 2018. The official reason is so it can tie into Metal better. I think we all know the real reason though.

However, today’s publication of Dark Days: The Forge and The Casting Director’s Cut showing the pencil art of Jim Lee, Andy Kubert and John Romita also has the script of The Forge in the back.

So when we remember this page from the original printing…

We now get the core team all named.

So from left to right, Reload, The Immortal Man, Stray, Reload again, Ghost Fist and Timber.

Some of them have been named in coverage before. But not all of them at once…

The Immortal Men #1, by James Tynion and Jim Lee, originally solicited for December 6th will now be resolicited in next month’s Previews and published on March 14th, 2018 alongside Dark Days: Metal #6.

IMMORTAL MEN #1
(W) James TynionIV (A/CA) Jim Lee, Scott Williams
“THE END OF FOREVER” part one! There is a secret history to the DC Universe of heroes who have protected humanity from the shadows since the dawn of time…and who can live forever. Enter the Immortal Men! The team, headed by the Immortal Man, has waged a secret war against the House of Conquest for countless years-but Conquest has dealt a devastating blow. When their base of operations, known as the Campus, is savagely attacked, the Immortal Men must seek out their last hope-an emerging metahuman known as Caden Park!

Oh and bonus note! Remember this final page of The Forge?

 

Yes he’s intended to look like the Joker from Endgame. But it also states that this is the same Joker.

After all, there are three to go around…
