I didn't originally have any interest in this, but I picked up a copy today (that's the third time this year something like that has happened to me).
I'll give it a read tomorrow.
That could either be the worst or best thing ever.
But I trust Morrison to make it the latter.
So I finally got to read all of Multiversity #1 and it was even more mind blowingly awesome than I expected, (and it's Grant Morrison so I expected a lot.) I just had one tiny little problem with it. There's a scene where President Superman has to meet one of his Generals and the Air Force 1 security staff aboard the plane which is clearly already in flight. There's even a cool panel with the Superman flight streak catching up to Air Force 1 in mid air. My question is, "How does he get into the plane without the whole tube decompressing and everybody flying out the windows and whatnot? In fact, in the following panel he's discussing his 'power nap' with his assistant and presumably no one is any the wiser." Did this bother anybody else or am I the only one nit-picky enough to have caught this?
@ruckus24: Actually, in real life if you were to open a hole in an airplane you wouldn't have everyone and everything inside the airplane being violently sucked outside since that would require a pretty massive hole and for those people to be standing right next to it.
@magicman411: Multiversity is basically a series of 6 one-shots and 2 bookend issues, Multiversity #1 being the first of these bookend issues. The one-shots are:
This series looks amazing, I can't wait til the official "Multiversity companion" comes out that is said to help, anyone know when that's supposed to come out? I just read later this year.
BTW, my thoughts on my WISH for other Alternate Earth's since DC owns the rights to write these other universes now with WB owning DC, other franchises etc too:
While I know it's probably unlikely but I'd love for them to make 7 of the alternate Earths(doesn't matter which number one that's not done yet) but since WB owns DC and DC has the rights to do the comics, I'd LOVE to see the following as Alternate Earth's in Multiversity:
Earth from Masters of the Universe-I know they've done a few crossovers already, one recently like with MK so instead of "super heroes" why not He-Man etc protecting Earth in that Universe.
Injustice Earth alternate(since the main Earth is really Earth 1 or N52 based Earth the one that fights Evil Superman ) have the second corrupted Earth there the actual Injustice Superman dictator Earth.
Earth from Watchmen Universe-An Earth where only really one person with powers and that's Dr. Manhattan, and the rest of the Minutemen, Watchmen protect Earth. Sure it's one of the few without any "super heroes" per-se but more vigilantes but it would work well. Plus who wouldn't want to see Rorshach take on Batman? Yes, I know Batman would most likely win but still.
Earth from Mortal Kombat Universe-This I would love to see, an Earth were perhaps no "super heroes" but much like Watchmen, they have other means of protection via MK super humans, metahumans etc and Raiden defending Earthrealm from outside threats, plus they had a crossover with DCU so why the hell not? It could be an Alternate Universe Earth for sure.
Earth from Smallville Universe-This just makes sense I mean come on! Plus they never really said Smallville is Earth 9 or Earth 1, some assume it's one but IDK I'd love to see this Universe get involved. Hell they even had the monitors recently and ironically currently Clark and Lois are lost on some other alternate Earth where Lois hooked up with Mr. Majestic via the bleed in the last issue called "Chaos".
Earth from V Universe-Who doesn't want to see this Earth?
Earth from Silver Age Universe-This would fit so well since it was so different compared to comics now.
Would be awesome, because afterall there can't be a "Justice League" on EVERY earth, MK would have their defenders, MOTU would have He-Man etc defenders, Watchmen the Watchmen, Smallville Clark and his Watch Tower team etc, etc.
@dagmar_merrill: Oh yeah, this series is crazy. I really want to see how the Ultra Comics one plays out. So far I feel pretty engrossed in it. Like if all does not go well we will know it and feel it in the real world. Obviously that won't happen, but it's got that feeling.
The issue was great but the only thing that made me mad was that Donna Troy was mentioned in the solicit as though she was going to make her debut in the issue (CV even showed she was going to be on there before today) and she wasn't in the issue. It's not major but it was the only disappointment.
