The best comic book covers of the week – 21 September 2020

2 min read

DC’s Generation 5, an ambitious event to hit the fast-forward button on continuity and introduce a new roster of fresh-faced heroes is pretty much dead in the water. That much was confirmed last week by DC’s big cheese Jim Lee, but something else is on the horizon once the dust from Dark Knights Death Metal has settled.

Called Future State, the event kicks off early next year and features a wild team-up across timelines and generations, as Detective Comics #1027 included a teaser which featured Kamandi recruiting the Golden Age Batman of 1939 to join him in an epic quest alongside Booster Gold:

Generations: Shattered kicks off the event proper, which DC described in its recent solicitations:

A threat of cosmic proportion to DC’s newest (and oldest) universe compels one of the most unusual groups of heroes ever assembled to take on the most mysterious foe they have ever encountered. Join the original Batman, Kamandi, Starfire, Sinestro, Booster Gold, Dr. Light, Steel, and Sinestro in their quest to save the universe before time runs out!

DC’s original plans for Generations was supposed to have begun in with a-shot titled Generation Zero: Gods Among Us, which would have been followed by Generation One: Age of Mysteries, Generation Two: Age of the Metahuman, Generation Three: Age of Crisis, Generation Four: Age of Rebirth, and finally Generation Five: Age of Tomorrow.

By the sound of things, Future State sounds like a more focused redesign of DC’s plans for Generation Five, but at this point, who knows? Let that mystery ferment in your head for a while, while perusing the finest comic book covers of the week!
