So a new tediously uninteresting villain goes around beating up and / or killing the Superbeings of multiple worlds, and is thwarted thanks to the fact that only the ONE TRUE SUPERMAN managed to figure out a plan to save them all, as opposed to the untold dozens of other superheroes, and all it requires is for one gay superhero to DRAMATICALLY sacrifice his life.

... why did Grant Morrison bother giving us a multiverse if this is all we're going to get?

Do they do that a lot?

I mean, there was Barry's sacrificing himself in Crisis...
And Wally and Bart going into the Speed Force during Infinite Crisis...
And Bart sacrificing his life to give Barry a power-up in Flashpoint...

Hmm... sensing a trend emerging...

Yep. Being a genre-savvy comics fan, Red Racer openly assumed he'd have to make the Ultimate Sacrifice in Multiversity.

And the whole "Wait, running really, really fast killed Red Racer?" aspect of this comic. I mean, come the fuck on.

From what I see here, it's not that he ran really really fast, it's that he ran so fast and so long that he compressed years (a thousand?) into hours and burned through his lifespan to build the ship.

Still, a crappy way to go for a tragically underutilized character.

So does anyone else now wonder what happened on Calvin Ellis (the black Superman based on Obama)'s Earth after his term was/is over? Does he get succeeded by a Trump-inspired Luthor? o.0

Oh wait. We already had that in the "real" DC universe.

Maybe he was succeeded by Veronica Cale?

(Or maybe his term isn't over yet... Good ol' Comic Book Time.)

Which still makes it kind of bizarre that he ended up dead--and a clean-picked skeleton. Did he collapse from old age at the exact moment he finished the ship? Did he make any mistakes toward the end of construction, if he had the mind and body of a 110-year-old? And did residual speed energy make his corpse rot at superspeed as well?

I am convinced this was all to further build up this mysterious collector-esque character that has been around since Rebirth.

So knockoff dime store version Dormammu is trying to create the story events of a Spider-verse by killing off different versions of Superman.

I mean, Spider-Verse was pretty much lifted from "Superman Beyond" anyway, so this is more third- than second-generation.

Right! I forgot Superman Beyond the one with Vampire Monitor.

Is it wrong that I find the Aquawoman character really hot? Because I don't even prefer blondes and somehow DAMN. Maybe it's the haircut.

It's the orange scale-mail. You know it.

She was one of my favorite characters from Multiversity too.

Aquawoman would be a much more interesting character than Aquaman

Oh, this is one of the grisly kind of superhero books.
