Oh had you forgotten all about 5G? Well, maybe in the light of the coronavirus pandemic, DC Comics has as well. But plenty of plans were already in place and have been moving forward. Including it seems, today's Legion Of Super-Heroes #5 by Brian Bendis and Ryan Sook. Now, those keen readers of Bleeding Cool's […]

Mongul Brings Warworld to Superman, as Lois Lane Goes Up Against ICE (Spoilers)

You know how Bleeding Cool said the other day that DC Comics was prepping a WarWold comic book series? Well, totally by coincidence, today's Superman: Villains sees Mongul returning on Warworld with Mongul Jr… and watching the news. While The Toymaker has been inspired by Superman's identity revelation to hand himself in. Only to be […]

"What Is DC Comics' 5G?" The Story So Far…

On the 13th of June, 2019, Bleeding Cool made the first mention of something DC Comics was planning called 5G. We had no idea what it was. All we knew was that it was 'something that is, or has, been planned at DC Comics at the upper creative and editorial echelons.' It took until October […]

Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's Metal Sequel, 'Death Metal' To Be Announced by DC on Wednesday?

Bleeding Cool has been reporting on Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's Metal 2, the sequel to Dark Nights: Metal for a while. We understood that it was planned before Greg Capullo drew Reborn at Image Comics – and if Capullo hadn't returned to the project, Snyder would have written it as a Justice League storyline rather than as a stand-alone event series. But he did. We also knew it was called Death […]

Who Is More Stupid – Batman or Superman in Superman/Batman #6? (Spoilers)

So how have Superman and Batman been doing? Not great, to be honest. They (with Wonder Woman) built Sanctuary as a mental health haven for superheroes that was full of contradictions and a massive security risk for everyone and, eventually, ended up killing off a bunch of superheroes and exposing what were clearly a mentally […]

Doomsday Clock Will Not Completely Line Up With The DC Comics Timeline - Official

Doomsday Clock Will Not Completely Line Up With The DC Comics Timeline – Official

When it was announced, Doomsday Clock, the unauthorised sequel to Watchmen by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank, was also a crossover with the DC Universe. Specifically the very-near-ahead DC Universe, the plan was that as the story reached its conclusion, that the events of Doomsday Clock would marry up with the DC Comics Universe then […]

The Long Read: Doomsday Clock is Canon and In Continuity

Over 2017 and 2018, Bleeding Cool ran a number of articles looking at the relationship of Doomsday Clock to the rest of the DC Universe – and even The Three Jokers too. We saw what once was clearly intended to be the tightest of structured continuity, fall apart as a result of delays, personnel changes […]

SPOILERS: Donny Cates Writes the Justice League in Thor #2

Some people accuse Bleeding Cool of running comic book clickbait stories. What they are actually doing is accusing Jude Terror of writing comic book clickbait stories. Which he fully admits he does. Usually within the very clickbait that he is writing. And people like Donny Cates get rather annoyed especially when that clickbait is about […]
