Popverse's top stories of the day


It’s the end of an era for DC in June 2024, with the final full month of the 'Dawn of DC' — and, in what might be an even bigger deal, perhaps the end of Batman’s inner conflict, as well, as the hero faces off against his dark doppelgänger one last time. But if everything’s ending, what happens next…? That would be the oncoming event that is Absolute Power, in which Amanda Waller puts her master plan into action and tries to save the DC Universe from… itself…? As if that weren’t enough, Nightwing’s origin is getting the anniversary treatment, and longtime Superman villain Brainiac is coming clean about his new origin.

The Superman family of titles aren’t immune from June's lingering sense of closure; June sees the end of the three-month-long House of Brainiac storyline, which is going to have pretty big repercussions across the DCU… and not just because there’s an army of Lobos running amok as the result of the green-skinned alien’s meddling with otherworldly cultures. Yes, this is also leading into Absolute Power, too. We’d tell you more, but why not just read what DC has planned for Superman in June 2024 for yourself by reading on?
