Blue Beetle Vs. Maxwell Lord – Your First look At Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis
by Olly MacNamee
I really, really enjoyed DC Comics Infinite Crisis when it came out in 2005 and then rebirth of the DC multiverse, so I’m interested in the Tales from the Dark Multiverse one-shot reimagining this crossover but with a very different outcome when Maxwell Lord faces off with Blue Beetle. Written by new Batman scribe, James Tynion IV, with art by Aaron Lopresti and Matt Ryan, DC Comics have released a first look at Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis ahead of its scheduled release date on Wednesday November 27th.
DC’s mega-event Infinite Crisis saw the dissolution of the Trinity, the rise of Alexander Luthor and Superboy-Prime, and the rebirth of the Multiverse…but it started with Ted Kord, the Blue Beetle, who saw it all coming and died with secrets that could’ve saved the world.But…things happened differently in the Dark Multiverse! In the fourth Tales from the Dark Multiverse one-shot, not only does Blue Beetle survive—he thrives! And after killing Maxwell Lord himself, Ted sets off a chain of events that irreversibly alters the lives of the Justice League and his best friend, Booster Gold. In trying to prevent a crisis, Blue Beetle becomes the Crisis…and the Dark Multiverse will never be the same.
