Dark Crisis: Preview Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1
by Olly MacNamee
The Dark Multiverse seems to be seeping itself into the DCU more and more these days and that includes the Tales from the Dark Multiverse one-shots DC Comics have been putting out. This week sees the publication of Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1 by writer James Tynion IV and artists Aaron Lopresti and Matt Ryan. In this preview we get a rundown of the original Infinite Crisis that saw Blue Beetle die by the hand of Max Lord. Seems it all went down a little bit differently in the Dark Multiverse, where this particular tale begins…
DC’s mega-event “Infinite Crisis” saw the destruction of the Trinity, the rise of Alexander Luthor and Superboy-Prime, and the rebirth of the Multiverse…but it all 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! 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.
