A rather depressing start...

Anyway, Boston approaches his tombstone with a sledgehammer and destroys it. After reflecting upon how he has no idea how to start his new life and how he has no one to turn to because during his first life he was a bastard... he notices the poor dead baby bird.

And suddenly his new role may have become a bit more clearer.

Much more DC than Marvel, though. For one thing, the DCU has been shown to have both the Judeo-Christian version of heaven and a monotheistic God, whereas Marvel is pretty much dominated by polytheistic pantheons.

The Fantastic FOur has met God. He looks like Jack Kirby.

OK, didn't know that. Still, A: that's more of a fourth wall-breaking in-joke than an actual religious reference, and B: it can hardly compare to a universe where at least one of the more powerful heroes is blatantly and directly powered by God, and there was an actual angel in the JLA who swore in Christ's name. The MU is practically a happy polytheistic playground compared to the DCU - if it weren't for the presence of characters like Wonder Woman who REQUIRE active polytheistic pantheons, the whole place would have gone to the dogs long ago.
