“Without spoiling anything, my story begins with the survivors of Earth-2 coming out of World’s End,” explained King, “ripped from their familiar surroundings and thrown into an environment that is completely alien, foreign, unexpected—and they’re faced immediately with a major challenge; not only from Brainiac but also the new villain of this piece, Telos.”

King explained a theme of the series is “family.”

“I’m going to have Thomas Wayne and Bruce Wayne to meet for the first time; generations of Batmen, fathers and sons,” promised the writer.

“I always look for family, somewhere. A father-son story, a father-daughter story, relationships between parents and children. Every one of us on some level connect to those stories, because we are a parent or a child … ultimately, it’s a story of survival, and good triumphing over evil in the compassionate sense, rather than the jingoistic one.”

The image by Ethan Van Sciver depicts all the various deaths of Superman throughout DC history.

“The piece of artwork—it’s emblematic of the entire series,” said King. “It’s literally a history of the deaths of Superman. It ties into Superman: Doomed, it ties into Action Comics #35, so you can see that the seeds for Convergence were planted a long time ago.”
