Over a year ago, comic book crator Jamal Igle posted the following on his Facebook page. Freaky!
Convergence..A DCU related dream.
I had a dream last night and figured out how to "Fix" the DC universe in six months.It all starts with Superman of course, the current version.
We would wrap up a storyline where Superman has a had a painful yet cathartic triumph.
Page 18Panel 1: we see a shot of the earth in eclipse. The sun peaking over the horizon as Superman, in the distance flies into frame.
1. Superman: It doesn't end…
Panel 2: Mid shot as we zoom in on Superman arching towards the camera
2. Superman: No matter how many times I throw myself out there, they keep coming.
Over the shoulder shot of Superman looking back towards the Earth. Cape floating lifelessly in the cold of space. Ice forming on it's edges
3.Superman: I joked when i was younger about the "never ending battle" but It's turning into a self fulfilling prophecy.
4. Superman: I can't turn to Diana, she doesn't understand.
Close up on Superman, looking pensive.
5. Superman: She doesn't see the toll it takes on me. I'm not a "warrior born", I'm a farm kid from Kansas.
Widescreen shot of Superman in the foreground, the earth in the background.
1. Superman: An entire world of heroes, and they keep looking to me for answers
2. Superman: I don't know what to tell them half the time.
3.Superman: Half of it's guess work, the other half luck
Largest panel on the page
Superman flies into the foreground, the blackness of space behind him.
3.Superman: Something's got to give. I won't roll over and surrender but there has to be another way, a better way.
4. Superman: There's too many people counting on me to fail.
Panels 3, 4 (connected)
Superman flies towards the Earth in panel 3
5. Superman: I can't fail
6. Superman: I just wish I knew another way.
We pan over to panel 4 as a portal opens
Panel 5 (Stat)
A small object, on fire, falls from the portal
The object streaks through the troposphere at breakneck speed. We can't make out what it is or how big it may be.
Shot from the ground, we're in the arctic. We can see the object as it races towards the ground, smoking trailing from it.
The object crashes into the snow, creating a large billow of smoke and snow
The snow begins to settle as we go to a widescreen shot of the area.
it's quiet… too quiet.
A close up of the snow as we see it crumple, a dark object can be seen underneath.
1.voice: …. uggghhhhh
We see snow fall from a figure as it rises from the crater, hunched and bent.
2. Voice:…that was…different..
We see a shoulder, draped in red cloth
3. Voice: what?
a close up of a mans ear as we see different bits of dialogue from from other DC Comics.
We see the back of the figure as we see a red cape with part of a yellow "S" symbol
4 Voice: Alternate dimension, clearly…another Earth.
Full page splash reminiscent of John Byrne's Man of Steel #6 splash. We reveal Superman, or more specifically, the Pre-New 52 Superman, red shorts and all, looking into the distance.
1. Superman: Great Scott..
Next: The next stage of the DCU Universe begins..Convergence!
Just an idea I had. Not saying what DC is doing now is wrong, Just something that's been on my mind.
