DC 1,000,000 my favourite crossover ever! For me it's one of the rare - perhaps the only - where all tie-ins were worth reading, because they were plotted by Morrison, excepting for Garth Ennis' Hitman. Sometimes I think of it as DC's most creative months; each issue was just crammed with awesome, funny, twisted concepts, redesigns and revamps. If it hadn't been for this crosoover, I probably wouldn't even be much of a DC fan. It was this love letter to its rich history that showed me just what an amazing universe the DCU is.

One of my favourite tie-ins was Superman: Man of Tomorrow 1,000,000, which tells the origin of Solaris and the history of the Superman dynasty:

While Bruce Wayne is running around on Pluto in the future, the 853rd century's Batman is knocking about present day Gotham City in his place.

Also, would anyone be willing to do the RESURRECTION MAN #1,000,000 post? I only own the issue as part of the DC ONE MILLION trade, and pages from trades are a monster to scan.

In the 853rd century, the JLA of that era guard the nine planets of the solar system, one member to each planet (or dwarf planet in Pluto's case, whatever).

However, there are bodies that orbit the sun even further out than Pluto. This issue introduces our solar system's thirteenth plaent, Iai. It is the domain of the Creeper.

The United Planets of the 853rd century are not the United Planets of the 30th/31st century. In the year 85,271, the U.P. is a mobile planetary cluster, a system of seven worlds slowly migrating its way across the universe. This system is protected by the Justice Legion L.

When you can journey any point in time, you're not limited to making enemies just in your own era. You can have people from all across the eons dislike you.

This 1,000,000 issue details the rivalry between Chronos of the 20th century and the Flash of the 853rd century.

Interestingly, this issue was penciled by J.H. Williams III. "Interestingly" because he was also the regular penciler for the comic CHASE at this time. Was he really so fast at one point that he could not only do a monthly title but also have time to pitch in an occasional fill-in on the side? What happened to him?

Each member of the 853rd century JLA is champion to a different planet in the solar system. So when the modern JLA switches places with their future counterparts, they each materialize at a different planet: Flash arrives on future Flash's homeworld of Mercury, Aquaman swims the xeno-oceans of future Aquaman's Neptune, etc.

Superman, naturally, arrives on Earth.

In the 853rd century, it's the day Superman's set to emerge from his thousands of years of solitude within the sun. One group of six kids wants nothing more than to witness the celebrations, but they can't because it's scheduled for past their bedtimes.

Ah, but they're resourceful tykes. They have a plan, and it involves dressing up as superheroes.

The answer will both surprise you and be obvious in hindsight.



Remember, this was published before Geoff Johns' retcon that Kon-El is genetically related to Superman.

At [personal profile] psychopathicus_rex's request, here's some DC ONE MILLION.



The plot of DC ONE MILLION was that the modern JLA is brought to the 853rd century to celebrate the original Superman's return from his centuries-long stay inside the sun (while the JLA of the future subs in for them in the present).

However, Batman, ever the buzzkill, felt he had better things to do than attend a celebration, so 853rd century Batman knocks him unconscious and forces him to go. Bruce Wayne loses consciousness in the present but awakens in the far, far future.
