Wildstorm concepts:StormWatch - The Carrier 

Dark_Nights_Death_Metal_Multiverses_End_Vol_1_1This one’s a doozy! It’s very hard to sum up this event, or this issue, really, but it fulfills the same function as last event’s “Dark Knights Rising: The Wild Hunt”.  Essentially, the multiverse’s coming down, and a team of heroes from different Earths assemble on a Carrier to save all of reality. In this case, the Carrier is used by Justice Incarnate, a team introduced in Grant Morrison’s Multiversity, with help of the Green Lantern Corps. They battle an assortment of evil Earths, including the Vampire Earth, Nazi Earth, Bizarro Earth, Crime Syndicate Earth, and Justice Lords Earth.

In the “Rise of the New God” backup, we see the Carrier reach Earth, with every Lantern having to band together to make it through the barrier, with the Carrier barely making it. Whether it’s destroyed is a matter of debate – on one hand, at the end of this event all destruction and damages are undone, but on the other, I’ve always had the feeling the Carrier carries over through reboots and universe shifts, like we’re still seeing the original Authority Carrier. We’ll see.

Next: “Future State: Dark Detective” issues 1 and 3, written by Matthew Rosenberg.
