DC's three-way mash-up of Star Trek's Mirror Universe, Marvel's What If..? and their own multiverse continues next month in Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1. Here's a first look.
In the pages previewed, Ted Kord-Blue Beetle isn't shot in the head by Maxwell Lord as he infamously was, but instead turns the tables on Lord, and of course thereby screwing the whole universe up.
"DC's mega-event Infinite Crisis saw the dissolution of the Trinity, the rise of Alexander Luthor and Superboy-Prime, and the rebirth of the Multiverse...." reads DC description, "...but it started with Ted Kord, the Blue Beetle, who saw it all coming and died with secrets that could've saved the world.
"But...things happened differently in the Dark Multiverse! In the fourth Tales from the Dark Multiverse one-shot, not only does Blue Beetle survive—he thrives! And after killing Maxwell Lord himself, Ted sets off a chain of events that irreversibly alters the lives of the Justice League and his best friend, Booster Gold. In trying to prevent a crisis, Blue Beetle becomes the Crisis...and the Dark Multiverse will never be the same."
