That Big Spoiler From DC Universe: Rebirth #1 Will "Unfold In The Background Over The Course Of A Couple Years"

USA Today is the most mainstream news source to utterly give away the ending of DC Universe: Rebirth #1, publishing on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.

But do you recall the comments Dan DiDio made regarding a two year storyline for the DC Universe post-Rebirth?

I guess this is the one… USA Today reports,

The culprit: Doctor Manhattan, the atomically powered, almost god-like figure inWatchmen who's more an antagonist than villain in Rebirth, Johns says. "If you're going to have a conflict between optimism and pessimism, you need to have someone who represents a cynical view of life and also has the ability to affect this. I know it's crazy but he felt like the right character to use."

How Watchmen is involved in the DC Universe is a mystery that will unfold in the background over the course of a couple years, but Rebirth in the meantime will focus on various players in its series.

So when exactly is the Curse Of Alan Moore due to hit?
