In the wake of DEATH METAL — a glimpse at a future for the DCU that’ll be built in its present!

Third Eye Faithful, if there’s one thing we can safely say is a big, monster-sized plus, it’s the direction DC Comics has taken over the last 12-18 months.

Seriously: they are the best they have been in ages, and they’re continuing to serve up some of the most exciting comic books on the stands, and it looks like things will only be heating up more with the arrival of the upcoming FUTURE STATE this Winter, and we cannot wait!

Taking place in the far future of the DC UNIVERSE, and showcasing the futures that appear to be built on the foundations of what’s going down in DEATH METAL, FUTURE STATE is your chance to get an early glimpse at what’s to come for the DCU in 2021.

What is FUTURE STATE? And why is it important to the DCU?

As many of you may know, DEATH METAL has been literally decimating the MULTIVERSE, and turning everything we know about the DCU upside down — and of course, we’re loving it.

If you’re not up to date with DEATH METAL, click here to get the full scoop on it with our THIRD EYE GUIDE TO DEATH METAL.

When DEATH METAL wraps up — the conclusion is supposed to be so shocking, so cataclysmic, that DC will need to take a pause from the present-day DC Universe, and showcase a look at its future in a post-DEATH METAL DCU.

A Compelling Look at the DCU’s Future — and then some!

First off: these are NOT Elseworlds or WHAT IF? titles — these are limited series, one-shots, and more, that showcase major moments that are expected to come to the DCU over the next year.

While some things may change throughout the course of what’s on the way for the DCU, it’s much more accurate to describe FUTURE STATE as a look-ahead, whereas DC Comics in 2021 and 2022 will be very much a how we get there.

And, Third Eye Faithful: these books are GOOD!

We’ve put together a rundown of all the awesomeness to come with FUTURE STATE, along with a few special Third Eye promotions to help you collect them all!

The SUPERMAN BOOKS! An incredible, fresh take on the MAN OF STEEL & more!

This may be one of the most exciting of the FUTURE STATE launches, as we’re given a take on Super that’s so fresh — we’ve never seen anything like it.

Not since PLANET HULK has a new twist been added to a character like what we’re seeing in SUPERMAN WORLDS OF WAR, and we cannot wait to see how it plays out!

Due to his involvement in an international crisis happening in the near future, Clark Kent has been rejected by Earth, causing him to focus his lifesaving efforts outside his adopted home.

He travels to Warworld to rise through the ranks of gladiatorial combat in order to defeat Mongul with the help of some unlikely heroes.

Back in Metropolis, Clark’s son Jon has taken on the mantle of Superman. After seeing the horrors that befell Gotham, he bottles Metropolis in order to keep it safe, putting him at odds with Supergirl.   

Connecting the two oversized Future State: Superman titles, Shilo Norman, the man known as Mister Miracle, finds himself caught between the city he grew up in and the battle-torn planet that could be his downfall.

Meanwhile in the Amazon rainforest, Yara Flor is chosen to be the new Wonder Woman.

Years later, the new Superman and Wonder Woman join forces to save their cities in a new superhero team-up the likes of which the world has never seen.

  • FUTURE STATE: SUPERMAN OF METROPOLIS
  • FUTURE STATE: SUPERMAN: WORLDS OF WAR

The JUSTICE LEAGUE books – an all-encompassing look at the world of FUTURE STATE!

A thread of great change runs through the Justice League heroes: a new League is built upon secret identities (even from each other), but an old and evolved enemy will use these secrets to try and overthrow the world.

For the supernatural heroes of Justice League Dark, the very fabric of reality has shifted, and heroes are being hunted.     

For Flash, Shazam, and the Teen Titans, it all begins when the four Riders of the Apocalypse unleash hell in a battle at Titans Academy, Barry Allen is cut off from the Speed Force, a Famine-controlled Wally West may be beyond saving, and Billy Batson makes a deal with the devil that will change Shazam forever.

Off-world, John Stewart and the remaining Green Lanterns are stranded in the shadow of a dead power battery; Jackson Hyde and Andy Curry are separated across the galaxy; and Amanda Waller executes her ultimate plan with a new but terrifyingly familiar Suicide Squad on Earth-3.     

At the end of time, Swamp Thing reveals its true intention, ruling supreme until a remnant of humanity launches a rebellion, and Black Adam looks to the past as the only way to save the future of the Multiverse.    

TITLES INCLUDE

  • FUTURE STATE: JUSTICE LEAGUE
  • FUTURE STATE: GREEN LANTERN
  • FUTURE STATE: SUICIDE SQUAD
  • FUTURE STATE: AQUAMAN
  • FUTURE STATE: THE FLASH
  • FUTURE STATE: TEEN TITANS
  • FUTURE STATE: SHAZAM
  • FUTURE STATE: SWAMP THING
