The Truth about 1985:
The Black Mercy’s vision wasn’t one about a peaceful life on Earth with Lois but a peaceful life on Krypton with a wife and child.
Now for 2 Truths/1 Lie. The Year is 1986:
- Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight came out showing a harder, darker, grittier Batman than the Batman the became somewhat of a father figure to Dick and Jason. Miller’s Batman was older and gray. The story showcased his fight to the death with Joker, his partnership with a new female Robin, and a pivotal battle between him and Superman.
- Alan Moore’s Watchmen also came out. Originally Moore meant to use the characters from Charlton Comics (like Blue Beetle and Captain Atom) but DC had other plans for them. Moore told the story of the obsessed Rorschach investigating the murder of his old teammate The Comedian and a conspiracy that unravels to both save the world and damn it.
- Superman was revamped in the title Man of Steel. His past of being Superboy and His dog Krypto were both taken away from his history. The issue also introduced Zod and their battle not only destroyed half of Metropolis it also ended with Zod’s death.
