Earth 2 Gatefold Cover Genuinely Surprising

The cover reveals the first New 52 appearance of a new DC character.



Source: Newsarama

DC is starting to roll out its "WTF" gatefold covers for the month of April.  Earth 2's cover reveal has a surprise appearance from one of the many B-list DC characters missing from the New 52.

Ready for the reveal?

It looks like Mister Miracle will be popping in to lend a hand to the reimagined Justice Society.  Take a look at the full cover below, courtesy of Newsarama. 

Bet you didn't see that one coming.

They've already confirmed that there is only one Apokolips and one New Genesis, so this is the ONLY Mr. Miracle in any DC Universe.

I did think the point of these gatefolds was to be surprised when you opened the book though.

Nice. I was very disappointed at the thought that Scott Free didn't exist anymore.

The more New Gods stuff I see, the more concerned I am that DC will realise they publish Wonder Woman and try to make that book match the continuity around it.

I think it was more a question of Scott Free versus Shilo.

I really like this book. I think half of it is how much I love the JSA but the other half is it's this alternate/ultimitizing characters we know and love but doing it in a way that it in no way tarnishes or destroys what came before.

It's Robinson doing his version of Ultimate Spider-man and it's really the most surprising book of the new 52 in my opinion.
