Alan Moore's "Twilight of the Superheroes" [Jun. 4th, 2010|03:52 pm]
John Constantine: Hellblazer



You guys know that back around 1986, not long after Crisis on Infinite Earths, Alan Moore proposed another multiverse crossover featuring John Constantine? DC turned him down on it, obvs, but the 38-page-or-thereabouts proposal inevitably found its way to the web, where DC has been waging a holding action against it for a few years now.

Took me a while to find an extant copy of the proposal online, but victory is mine! It is indeed about as awesome as I've heard, and the the punchline is killer, quintessential Constantine.

Alan Moore's "Twilight of the Superheroes." Pity this never got told.

re: Twilight of the Superheroes

Heard about it earlier.

I guess that we don't have to think of books of magic, life in wartime as a certain future than.

I don't think at all that any future is anything less because it is averted in this one, or in everyone, or revealed to be in another universe, so long as the emotions stay true. So long as the characters we've read about are at souls the characters we have long loved.

Like, if there is someone I love, I would want her to be happy in every universe.
