This Month in DC History
Surprise, it’s a boy! Batman learned he had a son named Damian in 2006. The good news: he missed the terrible two stage of his son’s life. The bad news: Damian doesn’t mind killing people.
What else happened in 2006? (It was so long ago.)
- Superman got one year left to live in the series All Star Superman. He spent his time making Lois a Superwoman, downing some black kryptonite to walk on the bad side, and paled around with the Supermen of the future. Quite a bucket list.
- The series 52 started to answer the question what happened in that year after the Infinite Crisis. Seen as a comic book equivalent to the TV show 24, fans would have to add the beep, beep, beep, beep at the end of each comic themselves.
- Out of our dreams and into our
car comics, Freddy Krueger got his own title. Slicing and dicing his way through a new group of teens, the comic made it harder for people to forget about him cause that’s how you defeat him, and make sure you don’t think of a purple elephant.
