I thought it was possible: fans of the Multiverse have lost interest

Several weeks ago, I said that I wouldn't be surprised if DC fans who wished for the return of the Multiverse had since lost interest, if sales results are any indication. Now, the blogmaster of Fortress of Fortitude proves that I was right, that someone is let down by how it's all being handled. And not just because there's too much bloodshed in the DCU these days that spoils everything, but also because the Multiverse, as now featured, is little more than an absurd, unimaginative sham that uses little more than stuff that wasn't meant to be seen as actual Multiverse material, like the Elseworlds and Tangent line. And knowing what goes on in Countdown to Final Crisis, I'd say that's one more reason why I won't be sorry if this Multiverse makes a departure soon.

If DC had thought of making a new Multiverse at least a decade ago, it's possible that then, they might've hit paydirt. But now, with Dan DiDio using it as some kind of a vehicle to promote yet more crossovers and other pointless material, the time is too late.

Sometimes, you have to be careful what you wish for.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
