A month ago, Bleeding Cool was the first to ask what Earth Omega was. Today we get the answer in Infinite Frontier #0 and set the scene for the DC summer event, Infinite Frontier. Major spoilers ahead, of course. The planet was first mentioned by Josh Williamson in his Future State: Justice League series as a prison for White Martians, to be taken there by Jo Mullein, Green Lantern of Earth.
As to what it was, Bleeding Cool fingered a scene from Death Metal #7…
Death Metal #7 told us there were two new centres of the Multiverse. And that there were two new centres. One is Elseworld. Whatever that means. And the other? Bleeding Cool understood that will be called Earth Omega and that we would learn more in Infinite Frontier #0 – also written by Josh Williamson. And of course in the DC Universe, omega can mean just one thing. And a place of punishment or containment may well fit in with that too.
Today sees the released of Infinite Frontier #0, and it looks like we were bang on. Barry Allen of Justice League Incarnate and The Totality, pointed the finger.
With the Quintessence confirming that this will be a prison, a place of endings, for White Martians and more. But there is someone else with inverted speech balloons.
And the death for all the members of the Quintessence, the supernatural body that oversees reality, made up by significant DC Comics characters.
Probably a good thing that Wonder Woman decide to skip their membership drive earlier in the issue. And the owner of those inverted speech balloons? And someone coming to a Zack Snyder Cut of the Justice League near you soon?
Darkseid most definitely is. And he just killed everyone, less than three weeks before his appearance in the Snyder Cut Justice League. Darkseid has become less of a threat in recent years, even joining the Justice League Odyssey. This appears to be an attempt to establish his power and attitude ahead of the Infinite Frontier event launching in June – or July, depending on whether you believe the comic book or the DC website…
