Metal saw Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo reveal a whole new reality to the DC Multiverse, both below in the Dark Dimensions and beyond the Source Wall to a far greater madness.
And also how the multiverse began – and was split in two…
Well, in today’s Justice League #15, James Tynion IV, Scott Snyder, Mark Morales, Stephen Segovia and Jim Cheung are promising yet another untold history of the DC Universe. One that goes beyond the origin of the current multiverse. And further, further back…
Because… why not?
Another multiverse before this one? Seems so. And we have a name to link to it…
Perpetua. Which suggests someone everlasting. Despite being from a previous multiverse that no longer exists. Unless it does… will this be Scott Snyder’s attempt to play nice with the Geoff Johns/Brian Bendis/Tom King Doomsday Clock connective tissue? Or what he’s been driving at since the beginning of Metal?
We’ve had mention of her before in Justice League #8. An ancient being imprisoned by the Source Wall who once wielded the seven forces, or which we have identified the Speed, Still, Sage and Strength forces so far.
And just this glimpse…
Looks like she is bringing a whole new history with her…
