$90.00

Set just after the dawn of the 21st Century in a world spinning inexorably out of control, comes this grim tale of the Near Future of the DC Universe!

Youth versus Experience,

Tradition versus Change,

and what it the quality that defines a Hero.

KINGDOM COME is a riveting story pitting the old guard — Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and their peers — against a new uncompromising Generation of "Heroes".

How much Violence does a "Hero" perpetrate?  Does a "Hero" Kill their Enemies?

These questions ultimately lead to the Final War between the Heroes in an Armageddon that will determine nothing less than the future of the Earth. 

When comic Heroes became "Dark and Gritty", Mark Waid and Alex Ross showed Everyone Exactly what makes a True Hero! 

Arguably the greatest Elseworlds tale ever told!  An Elseworlds story so popular that it actually entered the DC Universe continuity!
