Welcome to the Future State of the DC Universe. More of a project than an event, each of these stories takes place in a possible future for the characters involved. Over the next two months the status quo will be upset as the more popular characters are removed from the landscape to make way for a new generation of superheroes. Case in point: Batman is missing and we do not know where he is.
Future State: The Next Batman is an anthology book containing three strips, each taking place in Gotham City police state controlled by a private security firm known as The Magistrate. John Ridley crafts the titular tale wherein aerial drones support the these military personnel as they patrol and protect the city. The Magistrate is extended every latitude in the performance of their duties, including a zero tolerance policy on masked individuals that carries a “shoot on sight” order.
