Convergence

So DC established that Grant Morrison’s Multiversity was the rule of law.  Just those 52 universes that Grant approved and nothing else.  Nothing before the New 52 ever existed.

Once month later, DC completely undoes that, saying “Screw you, Morrison!  You’re not the boss of me!” and gives the fans kind of what they want.

Turns out that Brainiac finds his way to Vanishing Point, which, get this, is still connected to Hypertime, that thing Dan DiDio hated and wanted us to forget.

Via Hypertime, Brainiac is able to visit every timeline that ever existed, and started collecting cities from various points in time, and putting them all on Battleworld, er, I mean Telos.

The main point of Convergence is lots of characters get to fight lots of other characters, of course, and a bunch of one-shots came out featuring snapshots of former continuities that fans loved.

But the big point of Convergence that we should walk away with is that every single DC timeline still exists or existed.  Pre-Crisis.  Post-Crisis.  Elseworlds.  Alternate futures.  New 52 worlds.  Infinite Earths.  Video games.  Cartoons.  All of it.  It all still exists in Hypertime.

And that makes me happy.

So next, let’s talk about something that’s equally confusing but in ways bringing me joy, and that’s Rebirth.
