So you remember a few months ago at San Diego, when Kentucky Fried Chicken put out a comic about Colonel Sanders and his various adventures as part of an attempt to get comic book fans to eat even more fried chicken than the not insignificant amount that we already do? At the time, I wondered whether this was going to be the start of something bigger, like an ongoing series, or maybe even a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen-style shared universe that would team him up with the Burger King and Wendy in a battle against Ronald McDonald.
It turns out that I was wrong, but not because I was thinking too big. I was thinking too small. This week, KFC and DC Comics put out story called "The Colonel of Two Worlds," where the late Harland Sanders is not only incorporated into the DC Universe, but into the DC Multiverse as a character important enough to have an evil counterpart on Earth-3.
