Already got the first six issues pretty much outlined with a slightly retooled origin for Booster that will both give him a reason to meet Beetle and add in the mandatory third issue Batman cameo.
Right now, I'm stuck on how to get a Legion flight ring on him and find a way for him to get to the past from the 25th Century. I'm tempted to bump Booster up to the 35th Century; just to make it easier for him to use relics from the 31st Century . :smt017


What if he gets abducted by the Black Racer, who thinks he's a dead New God in need of transport to the other side. Booster bails, but reenters reality way back in the history of the 21st.

Moved and gently re-edited from elsewhere.

New event to end all events: Bizarro Mxyzptlk invades Earth Prime, taking over the DC comics line himself and quickly proving the most rational and innovative Editor in Chief of the line's history, just by cancelling everything before a full 52-week-long mourning cycle where nothing is released. Not even an advert.

Then, the nu-reboot, with Alan Moore given the keys to Euro-Disney in exchange for writing Superman and the Parademons, a monthly title where readers find Kal-El as an intergalactic front-man for a death-metal band (dabbling in trip-hop). His rocket never crashed in Kansas as an infant, it was picked up by Danny the Street, himself in exile from the Earth due to a bad haircut and who has since served as a father figure to Kal until Kal married his cousin Supergirl, upon which Danny "needed some space". Art by Nick Manabat returned to life through nano-bots.

Doom Patrol: The League of Legionnaires would be written by Frank Miller with Rob Liefeld doing finished art over Bill Sienkiewicz layouts. Niles would stand (or sit) revealed as the Heckler in a cheap mask all the time, from the 1960s on. And the true function of the team would be revealed as an unknowing cult bent on no better purpose than to make Despair of the Endless smile more often.

The Legion of Gotham Superheroes would feature Bruce Wayne's consciousness uploaded into the Bat-Computer following Bane's permanently breaking the bat years ago. Membership would include Green Arrow, Black Canary, Nightwing, Oracle, Red Robin, Spoiler, Red Hood, Anarky, Black Lightning, Katana, Wildcat, the Question, Wild-Dog, Plastic-Man, Red Arrow, Lady Blackhawk, Azrael, Huntress, Catwoman, Richard Dragon, Bronze Tiger, the Creeper, Manhunter, Batwoman, (the mute) Batgirl, Owlman, Mother Panic, Grifter, Ladytron and Ragman. Written by Larry Hama, illustrated by Bart Sears.

The Ball and Chain Gang War would be written by Harmony Korine in his comics debut and illustrated by Adam Hughes (with Milo Manara fill-ins as needed), and would deal with the ongoing aftermath of Hal Jordan totally losing his ring up Pandora's box, and her going mad with the power boost. She recruits a team of vixens to Make Themyscira Great Again, one and all spurned dalliances of Jordan's including Star Sapphire, Power Girl, Harley Quinn (going by the name of Quinnpool since her successful gender reassignment surgery), Poison Ivy, Artemis, Giganta, Black Orchid, Cheetah, Killer Frost, and "Sultry Red" (Jimmy Olsen in drag trying for an undercover story which he hoped would lead to his first real byline with the Daily Planet but things clearly went awry when he woke up beside Jordan). The now-powerless Jordan, realizing how he most assuredly should not have put a ring on it, or in it, must now depend on Guy Gardner to assemble Lobo, L-Ron, Estraño, Floronic Man, Midnighter and Apollo to hopefully sort things out in a battle of the sexes spanning the globe.

The White House of Secrets and Mystery. After Death of the Endless goes skinny-dipping in the Lazarus Pit, for shits and giggles, ya know, she is reborn as Life, and immediately proves so popular she is offered world leadership by the many over-the-hill global leaders all thankful for a chance at eternal life. Choosing the District of Columbia as her seat of power, she gets to redecorating, mostly working in the gardens planting all sorts of neat flowers. Co-written by the coked up team of Julian Assange and Pamela Anderson and drawn by Jerry Ordway, readers will laugh and cry when Life discovers the secret wardrobe of J Edgar Hoover, genuinely grateful for the new threads for a night of painting the town red. Blood red. But more blood-orange than the bloody kind of red. Blood-oranges are so good omg you have to try one!

Suicide Squad: Infinite Crisis would feature Dan Didio, Geoff Johns, Bob Harras, Jim Lee, Zack Snyder. Grant Morrison and Eddie Berganza, all imprisoned inside the fictional Belle Reve for all of eternity by new editor Bizarro Mxyzptlk...unless they can survive the deadliest missions Uncle Sam can muster up. Written by the director of Human Centipede, Tom Six, and lushly illustrated by Barry Windsor-Smith, with framing sequences drawn by Rich Johnston.

After a meteor shower consisting of remnants from the Zero Hour big bang finally passes near the orbit of Apokolips, strange attractions from their scattershot elements magnetically draw Batman's Final Crisis bullet up into the brain of Darkseid, kissing his Pineal gland, whereupon he sees through the Kirby dots now blotting his third eye how his calculations for the anti-life equation were all wrong.

Resolute his nature is reborn, his graven form not only a temple but a verifiable house of ideas, elevating his mind to a timely place of marvels where he himself indulges a secret war. If he without sin may cast the first stone, then the multiverse's manifest sin that is Darkseid will cast the last.

Mother Boxing around the accursed Earth, he seeks out the rocks upon which he will build his church:

His own Heart of Darkness, matriarch of the black diamonds, controller of the mind.

The mystical Blood Gem, controller of the soul.

The unified Star Sapphire, reflector of the grandest illusion, controller of reality.

The Manitou Stone, controller of power.

The Atlantean Globe of Transportation, controller of space.

The restored Ruby of Life, advancing or devolving stoic atoms in the blink of an eye, controller of time.

The six stones collected, Darkseid takes them one and all to heel, and kicks them far up the corpse of the fallen Shoe, thus weaponizing a punchline of allowing the proverbial other shoe to drop on all life in the universe, his Infinity Boot.

Alpha Centurian and the Omega Men. Stumbling onto a trail of seven missing children, one and all of sovereign bloodline from diverse worlds, the Omega Men chased a rogue Daemonite warship, uncovering how the alien youth were abducted to be sacrificed, to then bathe the deep space conjoining of gatekeepers gone mad by prolonged exposure to the multiversal exits, Access, Lobo the Duck, Rift and Sandman, all gathered in suicidal pact to rip open a permanent tear in all of time, all of space with the Daemonites, their cult.

With everything in all the galaxies having gotten so fucking dark already, no calls for assistance from the Omega Men were heeded by the heroes of any universe. Except for one. The should-have-been Superman, AC responds to the call as a last siege for the one-man empire he himself is, a final blaze of glory against the screaming multiverse as burning ode to its finest soul, AC's truest but denied love Lois of Metropolis.

The Omega Men accept the team-up with this Romanesque strange visitor, enjoying his enthusiasm from the veil of their consumed moonshine. Not because they want to save the multiverse. They want to roast marshmallows over its cinder, and this flying buffoon is going to provide the narration for their YouTube vid about it whether he knows it or not. Written and illustrated by Hart Fisher, with covers by Sam Henderson.

With no Earth-saving Superman in this reality to be pals with Bibbo Bibbowsk's drinking only got worse, with his Ace 'o Spades bar's patrons ultimately consisting 99% of roaches, give or take. When the stretch limo stopped out front one day with the Green Team Billionaires rushing in mid-step to an adventure begging to use his bathroom, he was too drunk to really care at all about how minors being unaccompanied by adults are forbidden from entry into drinking holes by federal law. But when they lingered to swipe free booze, he was thankful for little ears to talk off with his rehashed, emotive tellings of past victories round the block in his own younger days. And by the end of the evening Bibbo and the boys were stumbly and sloshed af and shouting to the sleeping homeless outside about their new best buds, their new family. Bibbo promising to adopt the lot of 'em with the boys promising to buy the city block the Ace 'o Spades rests on to avoid the city council's condemning the building. They are drunkenly shouting so loud in fact that Captain Marvel, though miles away, offers to give them his own thunderbolt to shut them up, but also because Billy Batson has been stuck in pre-puberty for over half a century and is fucking tired of this shit.

As Bibbo and his new sons turn the Ace 'o Spades into a beer-drenched man-cave, Captain Marvel Jr and Mary Marvel are left perturbed. They fight for the good in the world but these smelly brats just took out Billy, so they must be bad. But they are also filthy rich and money is supposed to be the goodest good. What are they to do?

Late 1940s, Lord Emp is stockpiling wealth by running drugs across Africa, offering to lead new clients to whatever heaven to eventually fund his Halo corporation. Explosive news breaks on his turf. Gnome, the traitorous half-Kherubim, half-Daemonite arms smuggler has used his stolen alien tech to locate what will prove to be Earth's largest carbon mine. Realizing the importance such a find will hold for Earth's projected surge in technological advancement in coming decades, something his own Halo Industries was being built specifically to exploit, Emp sees the carbon mine for what it will be for Silicon Valley, a gold-mine.

The problem is that Gnome's machinations were brought to his awareness by some off-worlder called Oberon, who was saying that a Mother Box forecast the importance of the carbon for the physical technologies soon to be manufactured around the world, and how such enlightenment must be allowed to come to pass if the terrans hold any hope of one-day saving their world from Darkseid. So this Oberon party-pooper was hellbent on stopping Gnome. Preferring Oberon's chances, Emp sides with him against the fighting guerillas and guerilla fighters of Gnome. The battle quickly gathers international attention, being the biggest melee since the end of World War 2 just a few years prior. NATO requests USA involvement before these three kings start World War 3 some 70 years early. Queen Hyppolyta, showing her uncivilized, womanly hysterical roots, asserts that the JSA were formed to make safe the world of mankind, which doesn't include hobbits or lilliputians. Realizing the queen had folded, Uncle Sam accepts a checkmate. But as the ready-for retirement even though they will come out of retirement like every freaking year for the next 70 years JSA exit the room, one remains. Physicist Al Pratt, aka the Atom, sees the huge ordeal this African conflict could well grow into, and offers to form a new team, Checkmate, to handle for Uncle Sam the missions which must stay on the down low. Flying to Africa to himself stop the growing war between Oberon and Emp vs the terroristic forces of Gnome, the Atom sides with Oberon and Emp, being smart enough to also see the potential for such a thing as "terroristic" for a label if he is really going to do this thing about Checkmate checkmating with geopolitical ne'er-do-wells for his government. In the smoky aftermath Emp signs a government contract with Uncle Sam, to do what all NGOs exist to do, safeguarding foreign resources solely for lucrative benefit of the business interests of Uncle Sam. From his vantage point seeing the potential monster his efforts have created in Emp, Oberon goes on to manage Scott Free, seeing the escape artist as a symbol for hackers in coming years, hopefully inspiring the terrans to Zero Day and Zero Hour the fuck out of Darkseid when the time comes.

(His actions do inspire comic artist Jim Steranko to himself become a literal escape artist, leading to a secret life as an agent for the newly-created FBI until he arrogantly slips so many coded messages into his Nick Fury children's comic that Checkmate covertly replaces him with a Durlan ally, named Skrull.)

Lord Emp monopolizes the carbon components necessary for motherboards, building his Halo Industries corporation into an honest to god power player. Like getting inspired by Oberon's Mother Box but realizing future generations would be too distracted by said technological advancement to themselves see how sex is awesome and like way necessary and nobody should feel triggered by any gender roles at all, he has a subsidiary produce X-Boxes instead to help lull consumers in his direction. When not living it up he submerses himself in this new superhero culture, helping to secretly finance crazy operations from Checkmate in trade for all sorts of neat files, with Atom even introducing him to more than a few. He makes mental note of his personal favorite, that big bear of a man Wildcat, for future reference should he himself ever see the need to form a team of his own. Life is good. Gnome has found more interesting use than all of his appearance thus far, so is fine with returning once more to modern obscurity. Lord Emp is screwing more supermodels than has every dwarf to have ever waddled the planet throughout history combined. Oberon was distracted for some years trying to understand Grant Morrison plots but today he blogs angrily on Myspace (where everyone is returning now that twitter and facebook are evil corporations) about how open borders works wonders on New Genesis. Atom's passed his own hefty mantle on to other Atoms since, clustering the way atoms are famously known for. They all got away with their individual schemes, with the rest of the world persistently looking in the wrong direction, at eye level.

Decades ago,

A Friday evening in Hazard County, with Deke Cobbler screaming runny mascara at his uncle across the kitchen table of their family homestead, a two-bedroom cottage in tobacco country. "You were the place kicker and you start your senior year by quitting to join the cheerleaders? Are you shitting me?" "I want to be a Roxette and you know this Uncle Dieter, because you wanted to be one too!" "Your father was the shoeshine boy who got a leg up, but he was the one always stepping in it. You were born for shit-kickers boy, not flip-flops!" "I hate you you're not my father!" Deke runs out to the Nancy Sinatra concert with the squad, him thinking that where there's a Sinatra there must be showgirls. But hearing the words of Nancy, Deke becomes radicalized. Elated tears of being so high on life at that magical moment, remembering how his father had died when he was a child, having kicked one cop in the nuts too many, and facing his ultimate end as a petty criminal in combat with a third-rate costume. How he, Deke Cobbler, had inherited his dad's Left-Shoe-Of-El-Anansi album as well as his dad's natural affinity for easy side money as a foot model in print adverts for the larger box stores. But that instead of a life of kicking do-gooders and posing for modest spreads in women's magazines Deke wanted to dance and stomp and two-step his life away. But one of these days these boots are gonna walk right over you badad boom boom doom doom bloom bloom bloom everything would be different now. *Becomes Dennis Rodman*

Today,

Dan Cobbler's family tree was cursed. He didn't know that for certain, having grown up fast in his short years under the care of the sorts of state-run orphanages where knifing janitors who get feely when sharing a cigarette is a monthly routine. His kicks are hood, yo. Straight up. Dam straight because if the dam were crooked it wouldn't hold no water. Dan knew nothing about his family, or their legacy. Until one day when breaking rocks for the state he shatters a stone into a zillion slivers of obsidian nightmare, spinning and twirling about themselves while slithering up his left boot. The black flowing through his veins, to his brain and his brain's brain, he hears the voice of the new shoe. It tells him so much, as he laughs aloud to himself leaping off his left foot now booted in techno-organic nano-particles re-architecturing the laws of physics they encounter with steam and sulfur, leaping 50 feet high and 500 feet across, spinning head-flips in midair as he lands on the same giant left boot, leaping yet again 500 feet high and 5000 feet across, into the horizon. Dan knew his family's place now, Sam Kieth illustrating our best foot forward perhaps but still booted heels for vengeance. Dan's destiny is a step away now, neither villainy of his grandfather or infamy of his father, yet still over the ledge, into the muddiest black. When adventure's about, the Cobbler's afoot!

Potential sequel idea: most Green Lanterns can summon their rings when they are not wearing them. The farther the distance the more will it takes to summon it. Hal Jordan, having the greatest will of any GL, makes countless attempts until one day he succeeds. He is now literally able to snap his fingers and have that sweet sweet honey pot at his beck and call anytime and anywhere he wants. Frequent use of Pandora as his private power-puppet begins to allow Hal to tap back into the Emotional Spectrum and slowly transforms him into Parallax.

Vertigo began from taking off-center but established DC characters like Sandman, Doom Patrol and John Constantine and pushing them further outside of the PG-rated universe, but now that those characters have been brought by committee back into the fold, I think it only fair that other DC mainstream but off-center characters get pulled aside for a turn under the Vertigo imprint.

Anarky in the USA: The original Anarky didn't die, he woke up from the VR simulation he'd programmed for himself, where sociopolitical factions were metaphor'd into super-heroic guises. Finding the pattern in the fabric he walked his way to their natural end. And now, he's ready to apply those physics, apply those philosophies. No matter who needs to die. Mr Robot meets the Warriors meets Stand and Deliver. Written by Bob Budiansky, pencils by Rick Leonardi and inks by Kent Williams. Painted covers by Williams.

Second Coming of the Batman: Featuring Superman's pal, Alfred Pennyworth. A suppressed alien xenophobe, Alfred was disgusted by stories of a magic boy in Kansas, and of radio reports on Doom Patrols and Challengers of the unwholesome Unknown. None of which would do as all of it was just too unnatural. And he was a rational enough man to see what the future forebode. And so he paid that hoodlum to kill the Waynes outside of the theater that night. He did not wish for them to share such a world strangely visited by perversity, and all the same he realized that young Bruce would need to have his comforts and sensibilities pulled from the fire, to become the fire himself. When the Superman entered the public sphere, Alfred did all that he could to prod and guide Bruce into the directions necessary for a man of privilege to rightfully stand firm against such alien powers. A savior in the King James way. Written by Jonathan and Christopher Nolan, illustrated by Whilce Portacio.

21st Century Karate Kid: Stranded in the here and now far and away from his own era of the 31st century, thanks to an experiment gone horribly wrong, Karate Kid travels the world to learn for himself what his history will be. With tour-guide Pied Piper, who has been bound to Etrigan the demon. Piper wants to find and torture that traitor Jason Blood, but a hot screw along the way with future boy and his flight ring is what humbles the demon. Written and illustrated by Life of Agony's Alan Robert.

Bar: Misjudging the Sovereign 7's bar for a corner pub, Booster Gold is at long last drunk enough to tell Crimson Fox about the other universe he visited for a time before. Which in ongoing form would be the story of M83's musical trilogy Midnight City, Reunion and Wait. Written by Elliott Serrano and illustrated by Tomm Coker.

The Haunted Tank: Having rebelliously run off on her family's European summer vacation, 15-year-old Stephanie Brown willfully took to the streets, turning to prostitution to pay for her dagger without a cloak, adventures path. But ripping off the wrong dealer meant she'd be camping at the old junkyard tonight, blocks and city blocks away from any living form. Discovering her way into what she presumes to be a small fallout shelter, she awakens that first night to raging night-terrors. The world would soon burn, but she and the ghosts of this army tank are to light the match. Written by Alan Martin and illustrated by Jenny Frison. Covers by Travis Charest.
