Media Release — Futures End? Blood Moon? Brother Eye? Convergence? Yes, it all connects. Being told in the weekly comic book series set five years in the future, the events of THE NEW 52: FUTURES END play directly into CONVERGENCE – DC Comics’ massive 2-month event taking place in April and May of 2015.
Thirty-five years from now, Brother Eye, the all-seeing artificial intelligence designed to protect and serve humanity, has turned on its makers. Nearly all life on Earth has been eradicated, leaving only the cybernetically enslaved superheroes Brother Eye has converted into its unstoppable executioners. Led by the Batman – the man who helped create Brother Eye – a small team of heroes fights on. Their last-ditch plan: send a hero back to the past to prevent Brother Eye from ever being created.
Terry McGinnis (aka Batman Beyond) only made it thirty years back during his timestream jump. The technological apocalypse was already in motion and the Earth has become home to millions of refugees from Earth 2.
Now’s the perfect time to catch up and see what’s going on with Batman Beyond, Frankenstein, Fifty-Sue, and a sprawling cast of heroes, rogues, gods and monsters from across the DC Universe – all trying to end the future before it ends them.
