‘Convergence’ Week Two: Azbats, Gen 13, Kingdom Come’, Other Things Everyone Definitely Loves

Batman: Shadow of the Bat, DC Comics

Over the past couple of weeks, DC Comics' Convergence event has resulted in some of the most exciting and most bizarre announcements since the company threw out their previous shared universe canon in favor of the "New 52" reboot -- especially since the core idea of next April's big crossover is that they're bringing back a bunch of the versions of characters that they got rid of for a big battle against the new batch.

The second week's launches will see the return of characters from 1996's Kingdom Come and the landmark Justice League International, plus Louise Simonson writing Steel.

Wonder Woman and Superman have long seemed like they'd make a nice match -- they both have blue eyes and blue-black hair, they're both superheroes with similar powers, they wear matching costumes. But maybe they look a little too much a

What happens when superheroes grow old? It's been addressed in plenty of comic book stories from Frank Miller's classic old Batman story "The Dark Knight Returns" to the grey-haired Superman of "Kingdom Come," and of course, Marvel entire series of "The End" comics, imagining the final days of heroes like Wolverine, the Hulk, and the X-Men.

DC: Is it Really a Countdown to the End?

My first stop of the day was a DC Comics panel on Countdown. I had expected this to be a normal discussion with the people on stage talking for a while then opening the floor to questions from the audience. Instead, after the introductions of Dan DiDio, editors Mike Marts, Mike Carlin, arti
