Everyone's Talking Omniverse At DC Comics These Days

Bleeding Cool first noted the recent use of the word "Omniverse" in DC Comics back in November. With Death Metal: Rise Of The New God featuring a cosmic being from the Omniverse, trying to collate a record of everything that ever happened, that ever mattered.

Pioneered by Mark Gruenwald as a term, it's the idea that multiverses exist within a wider reality, the Omniverse. And it's one that DC Comics, especially those from Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV, seized upon.

We took this as a cue for what we nickamed the DC Omniverse Special, but was actually called DC Infinite Frontier, a reset, retcon and partial reboot of the DC Universe, in a reality where everything happened and everything mattered. And everything is about the Omniverse right now. Last week's Flash #768 reminded us…
