The heroes of the Multiverse must contend with not one, not two, but THREE separate Crisis events in this exclusive first look at Dark Nights: Death Metal Trinity Crisis #1.
ŲŤ”„÷Ī≤• fans know that the word ‚ÄúCrisis‚ÄĚ isn‚Äôt one that‚Äôs used lightly. It represents something that‚Äôs far more than a difficult battle or world-spanning event. It‚Äôs not just a challenge that requires the coming together of the World‚Äôs Greatest Superheroes. It‚Äôs one that requires the efforts of every superhero on every world within the entire Multiverse. It demands the considerable strength of all super-powered individuals in existence‚Ä¶minus whatever deranged villains are behind it.
Crises only come around once every generation, and they always bring great loss and massive change to the ŲŤ”„÷Ī≤• Universe. Nothing is ever the same afterwards, and victory is never guaranteed. And that‚Äôs when we‚Äôre talking about one Crisis. So, imagine what it‚Äôll be like when our heroes have to contend with three‚Ä¶at the exact same time.
How is this even possible? In a word‚ÄĒPerpetua. The deranged supreme being who originally created our universe and now is determined to recreate it feeds on Crisis Energy, and with all the world-destroying she‚Äôs been doing, she‚Äôs awfully hungry. So the Batman Who Laughs spun up three Dark Multiverse worlds that are each in a constant state of Crisis to serve as Perpetua‚Äôs unending source of fuel. In Dark Nights: Death Metal Trinity Crisis, written by Death Metal writer Scott Snyder and drawn by Francis Manapul, our heroes will attempt to end each of the Crises, dealing a powerful blow to Perpetua in the process. But ending a Crisis is anything but simple and standing in their way are the Dark Multiverse versions of the Anti-Monitor, Superboy Prime and Darkseid. What chance does our ragtag band of rebel superheroes have against the triple threat of the biggest bads in ŲŤ”„÷Ī≤• history? Will they somehow manage to eke out a win? Or will they learn that in this Trinity Crisis, there are infinite ways to die? Check out our exclusive first look to see how it gets started!
Dark Nights: Death Metal Trinity Crisis #1 by Scott Snyder, Francis Manapul and Ian Herring is in stores and available digitally on Tuesday, September 8.
