DC Comics has revealed its next big event. Infinite Frontier is set to kick off this summer and will further preview the future of the DC universe. This will follow in the footsteps of Future State, which offered a much larger window into the future, including new versions of Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League.
The recently released Infinite Frontier #0 set the stage for the event. In it, the heroes saved the DC Multiverse from Perpetua in Dark Nights: Death Metal. All of the damage from all the Crises was undone. Additionally, heroes long thought gone returned from whatever exile they had been in.
Infinite Frontier will kick off this June. The new six-issue miniseries comes from Joshua Williamson and Xermanico with covers by Mitch Gerads. It will further explore the expanding DC multiverse.
The synopsis for the Infinite Frontier summer event reads as follows.
“In this summer event, Alan Scott, the Green Lantern from the Justice Society of America, has noticed some of his allies are still missing in action, and he’s determined to find them. There are others, though, that would rather remain hidden than explain themselves, like Roy Harper, a.k.a. Arsenal, a man who should be dead now is not. Plus, what does all this mean for the DCU’s place in the Multiverse? On opposite sides of a dimensional divide, both Barry Allen and President Superman ponder this question. Not to mention the Darkseid of it all! Or a team of Multiversal heroes called Justice Incarnate!”
How, precisely, this ties into what we learned in Future State remains to be seen. What is clear is that DC is not wasting any time in getting eyes on its next major event.
Here is the synopsis for Infinite Frontier #0.
“Gotham City, the Joker jolts citizens awake with an attack even the Dark Knight never expected. Brazil, a young woman discovers her destiny and her connection to the Amazons. In Belle Reve, Amanda Waller plots an invasion of Arkham Asylum. In the far reaches of space, Mongul dreams of galactic domination, while the Green Lantern Corps hosts a summit of its greatest enemies. At the Hall of Justice, the League joins forces with Black Adam. Beyond the mortal world, Wonder Woman settles into a new role in the godsphere. And somewhere in the DC Universe, it’s the return of Stargirl—in an all-new tale written by Geoff Johns!”
Infinite Frontier kicks off on June 22.
