I Love This Idea

Kingdom Come is the greatest story ever told in comic book form in my opinion. Written by Scott Waid and illustrated by the genius Alex Ross, it's the story of a world gone made after Superman went away one day and turned his back on the world and humanity that had wounded him so deeply. How his return threatens to either save or destroy a world on edge is what makes the epic so compelling. Beautiful to look at for the eyes and thrilling to the mind it's the most glorious comic book read I have ever experienced - and baby, I have read it all. The final 6 pages that were finished after the book was first published are so meaningful that it will make a grown comic book fan cry.

I own the comics, many of the fantastic action figures, and even an audio book with full cast, sounds events and music. It's great to listen to on a long ride or wait once you have already read the collected editions of the story.
In the Upcoming CW movie - Crisis on Infinite Earths, the Kingdom Come Superman will appear. Crisis is another of DC Comics' tent pole stories that changed the direction of a whole Universe of characters. I am impressed with how much thought has cone into making the best superhero movie that the CW can. They spent many years introducing these great DC heroes and villains to this TV Universe and now a great crossover epic film is possible. I have watched them all and was very impressed. Once those shows drop all the grade school romance bullshit, they are comic books come to life.
Crisis on Infinite Earths is an American comic book published by DC Comics. The series, written by Marv Wolfman and pencilled by George Pérez, was first serialized as a 12-issue limited series from April 1985 to March 1986. As the main piece of a crossover event, some plot elements were featured in tie-in issues of other publications. Since its initial publication, the series has been reprinted in various formats and editions.
