DC's mega-event 'Infinite Crisis' saw the destruction of the Trinity, the rise of Alexander Luthor and Superboy-Prime, and the rebirth of the Multiverse...but it all started with Ted Kord, the Blue Beetle, who saw it all coming and died with secrets that could've saved the world. But...things happened differently in the Dark Multiverse! Not only does Blue Beetle survive- he thrives! And after killing Maxwell Lord himself, Ted sets off a chain of events that irreversibly alters the lives of the Justice League and his best friend, Booster Gold. In trying to prevent a crisis, Blue Beetle becomes the Crisis...and the Dark Multiverse will never be the same.

BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer


James Tynion IV's story is definately a respect builder for Ted Cord's Blue Beetle character which is best remembered as being the first super-hero to get too fat to fit in his costume and of course "Bwahahah!" But here, Ted manages to get past that image and show what a good character he might have become under other hands. It's just a shame that he ends up going off the deep end, (redacted) himself just when it seemed like there would be a bit of light in a Dark Multiverse tale, kills (redacted), and plunges the world into mindless slavery. This glimpse into the Dark Multiverse has some twists and turns that make it much more than just a depressing look at the DC Universe.

I give it 7 out of 10 Grahams
