Over at Newsarama, the latest teaser for Countdown has been posted. Evidently now it is evil's turn to take center stage. With meticulously drawn art by Ethan Van Sciver, the picture has so much detail that it is hard to take it all in.
The first thing that catches my eye is the Kingdom Come Superman. What is that on his hand? Is it the symbol of the Atom? Is it Captain Atom's insignia? I am not sure.
I was also fascinated to see the Martian Manhunter and Catwoman in this picture. Having Joker whispering in her ear, it really makes me wonder what could happen to see him at her side.
What is Luthor so upset about? Is it because there are more Supermen then there are Luthors in the frame? Is it because someone ate his eggo? What do you think?
It is pretty official that Mary Marvel has gone bad. She is surrounded by Granny and has an ominous expression on her face. The last piece of the puzzle is Trickster, Penguin, and Desaad looking a bit amused and confused.
Lastly, what about the scraps around the ground and the Darkseid looking statue? It must mean that there is a hell of a fight in the works.
Now if it will only get here. Enough build up already. I am ready for a cohesive, fascinating story to come out of all this bland branding!
What is your take?
