An introduction by Elliot S. Maggin for Kingdom Come TPB.
Dedicated to Christopher Reeve.
Set just after the dawn of the 21st Century in a world spinning inexorably out of control comes this grim tale of youth versus experience, tradition versus change and what defines a hero. KINGDOM COME is a riveting story pitting the old guard — Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and their peers — against a new uncompromising generation and ultimately in the final war against each other to determine nothing less than the future of the planet.
Rorschach, Captain America, Thor and Spider-Man all make cameo appearances yet are not part of DC continuity.
