10 Things You Need To Know About The Future Of DC Comics

Some heroes will die! Some will live! A teenage girl will be president!

The way that the editorial team keep shaking it up, you'd think the DC Universe was a snow globe or something. Not four years after they totally rebooted their entire line of books and characters with the New 52 initiative, the publisher has returned to many of its classic stories and status quos with the current Convergence summer crossover. And there's big changes coming after. Okay, so technically Convergence is a €œband aid€ to cover the DC office's move from East to West Coast, but it's also to buy them some time before they reveal a bunch more big changes to many of their main characters. Those changes have been slowly teased out with the Divergence Free Comic Book Day issue, and a recent series of Sneek Peak comics released online. All of those books have given readers a pretty good idea of what the state of the DCU is post-Convergence, with many of the main titles wrapping up major storylines before that event started and so above to move onto bigger and brighter things. Such as a certain Caped Crusader being a robot now. Also: more dead Green Lanterns. There's still a few weeks left of Convergence, meaning there's still time to get caught up with what awaits the likes of Superman, Green Arrow and, erm, Prez, Doomsday and Section 8 very, very soon. Here are ten things you need to know about the future of DC.
