A Crisis in the DCU Inspired by Last Novembers Election

This November we will finally see the long awaited DCU/Watchmen crossover. Itís called Doomsday Clock and will pick up the threads laid out in DC Universe: Rebirth #1. The event will be written by Geoff Johns with art from Gary Frank. According to Johns the event is inspired by the recent election of Donald Trump and the rise of extremism all over the world. At the end of Rebirth after Johns had laid out the course for the DCU he talked to Frank about how Doctor Manhattan could involve himself in the DC Universe. It took Johns a while to come up with the whole story and after the Presidential election he had the story. Trump isnít the major reason for the story, however, itís the feeling that no one is talking to each other and remaining on separate sides. The event will use elements of Superman, the Watchmen and the DC Universe as a whole. Unlike other crossovers Doomsday Clock will have no tie-ins but will have an impact on the entire DC Universe. Using Frank for the project puts volume three of Batman: Earth One on hold since Johns didnít want to use another artist. That is almost done so we should expect it in 2018. The build up to Doomsday Clock began in The Flash #22 with a four-page prologue story.
