  You've got Kal Kent, Batman warden of Pluto and... Robin, the TOY Wonder!

Yes, yes, yes… a million times YES! The Morrison/Porter JLA is one of my all-time favorite runs and my favorite storyline to come out of that was definitely DC ONE MILLION. As I’ve said, it was probably my favorite DC crossover ever and, in my mind, the world of the 853 century introduced there has been criminally under-explored since the mega-story wrapped in ’98. Now, Bleeding Cool’s got wind that Chris Roberson and Jesus Merino are taking SUPERMAN/BATMAN “back to the future” with issue #79 (as the cover to the right evidences.)   

I hope this is the sign of more to come. I’d love to see the ONE MILLION universe gets its own line. C’mon… how many years did Marvel’s 2099 last? You just know there’s a potentially-limitless well to dip from, here. Actually, now that we’re on the subject, I’m going to task you sharper Comic Vine manics to answer a question of mine. How many references have been made to DC ONE MILLION in the proper DCU outside of Solaris and Kal Kent popping up in ALL-STAR SUPERMAN? Has it been established as one of the 52 worlds in the multiverse, or is it still understood to be the main Earth’s future?  == TEASER ==

You know, thinking about this, re-introducing ONE MILLION makes even more sense now that DC’s cosmology has gotten such an overhaul. In my mind, it was the best integration of the whole super hero universe concept, weaving the super-hero conceit across a sprawling space opera tapestry. And, more specifically… how cool was it to see a Justice Legion A whose members each had dominion over a planet? And a 853rd century version of the LSH who made their 30th century counterparts look primitive? This was wild stuff.

We have seen Kal Kent in All Star Superman we have seen Batman One Million in Batman #700 this is going to be the first time in a while someone other then Morrison references the DC One Million story.

Superman probably thinks he's posing for Maxim or Vogue
  
 
 
America's Top Model maybe?

I'd like anyone to explain which Earth is the "real" Earth in both Marvel and DC.  Bwaa Haa Haa!!   
 
All good natured joking aside, I admit, Morrison and Porter on JLA was the comic that got me back into Justice League many moons ago,  so this is interesting news.

this idea always seemed so cool except one thing: 830,000 years in the future?? seriously? thats too far. Robin looks like hes from the 1700's and superman and batman look 80years ahead of our time maybe 150. we cant even come anywhere close to having the slightest idea what 830,000years in the future would look like. 
 
Everything else about DC One million seemed really awesome except the time and robin the toy wonder

They are also sort of solidifying Batman Beyond and the Damien future of Batman as continuity too right?
So maybe this is another future they are going to sort of solidify in the years to come.

Well it's interesting because in Batman #700 after Dick we saw Damian as Batman then Terry McGinnis as Batman trained by Damian then Brane Taylor and his ancestor then at the end Batman One Million it had a great motto at the end that said "No matter where, No Matter when, No Matter how dark."
