E01: Batman Eternal #25 | Futures End [Superman #1 | Flash #1 | Sinestro #1] | He-Man and MOTU #17 Reviews [Devil Comics Entertainment]

We will be summarizing and reviewing the top DC releases for September 24, 2014.

The weekly Batman Eternal #25 sees Gotham under Martial Law as the Gotham television series debuts this week. Gotham has become as much of a character as Batman and this series reinforces the fact.

This week is also the final issue of summer Superman event Doomed where Superman is infected by the Doomsday virus and becomes Superdoom. The series was way too long and the final splash page gives us the existence of the pre-New 52 or B-52 DC Universe.

After nearly killing his brother last issue, Adora discovers the existence of the Sword of Protection which will be able to save He-Man. The series lays the groundwork for the upcoming limited series He-Man: Eternity War in December.

This week is also the final releases of the New 52 Futures End books. The New 52 – Futures End #21 sees Green Arrow and the outsiders ready to take on Camdus by the end of the issue. 

Superman: Futures End #1 reveals why Shazam became the masked Superman and leading to the return of his true self by the end of the issue. 

The Flash: Futures End #1 begins the debut of Wally West as the Flash taking on the future Flash.

Sinestro: Futures End #1 begins on a prison planet where Sinestro is a prisoner with his ring finger missing. However an artificial missing finger is forged and Sinestro can wield the ring again. Sinestro heads back to where his corps fell on Necropolis and rebirths his corps into the new Black Lanterns.

Booster Gold: Futures End #1 sees Booster Gold bouncing throughout the multiverse. Meanwhile another version of Booster Gold is tortured into giving the location of Vanishing Point. The story will definitely continue in the DC Crisis event celebrating the 30th anniversary of Crisis of Infinite Earths. 

That’s it for the last week of September for DC Comics.
