Ever since Dark Nights: Metal began, we have gotten a few different Dark Multiverse titles from DC. Obviously things would go a bit differently with certain characters and stories in a Dark Multiverse. So we're going behind the Source Wall for a couple of stories that you know and love, but with a twist.
DC has announced that both Batman: Hush and Flashpoint stories will get the Dark Multiverse treatment in November. You can see the covers above for these titles, both done by the great David Marquez. Each one-shot title will also have new creative teams.
For Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Batman: Hush, writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson will look at the story where Tommy Elliot ruins Bruce Wayne's life when they are children. So it's Tommy who becomes the "Dark Prince" thanks to Talia al Ghul, Oswald Cobblepot, Harvey Dent and Jason Todd. Enter "Batman the Silenced" and we'll see who's life actually gets ruined. You will see interior art from Dexter Soy and it will be printed in Prestige Format. You can get your copy on November 3, 2020.
Then we move on to Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Flashpoint with Bryan Hitch, who will provide the art and the writing for this one. In this version of the story, Barry Allen never fixes the Flashpoint universe that he created. So it's never undone, which means that Thomas Wayne is still terrorizing Gotham as Batman and the Amazonian/Atlantean War is still on. Does this mean that Reverse Flash will now replace Barry and take his legacy? We'll find out on November 17, 2020.
Which of these stories intrigues you the most?
