This year Marvel and DC will both be having their own giant, universe changing events; Flashpoint from DC and Fear Itself from Marvel. Both companies just released the first covers to their books.
In Flashpoint, The DC Universe’s timeline has been completely altered. The heroes we all know will be living completely different lives. The event will be huge (15 miniseries are coming out along side the 5 issue main Flashpoint story) and it looks fun. Miniseries titled Emperor Aquaman, Lois Lane and the Resistance, Frankenstein and the Creatures of the Unknown, Deadman and the Flying Graysons and Abin Sur the Green Lantern have me excited for the different stories DC is going to be able to tell in this new timeline.
Platform Nation already covered a lot of information on Fear Itself. This cover does have some cool stuff in it though. It looks like Thor is going to get a beating, which let’s us know just how powerful this new threat is going to be. More importantly though, whoever beat him down is holding Thor’s hammer. That is bad news for the Marvel Universe heroes.
