”The Blackest of Winters” is the new Thor saga and this scourge of darkness destroys the DC world, as revealed by Donny Cates. Twitter has been flooded with images of the comic strips that show simply the shadows of the DC super heroes in the Metropolis. But, unfortunately for the DC Heroes, they’re far away from home, giving an almost savage introduction to the destructive wave that’s heading into the Asgardian world.
DC superheroes serving as a collateral damage
Cates teased The Black Winter in an interview saying that nobody would anticipate a destruction like that where the Justice League serves as the collateral damage. Just the idea of the DC superheroes not being able to defeat whatever that was awaiting for their destruction, just makes the whole Thor saga much more exciting.
What does the comic creator have to say?
“This is an idea though that I’ve had for a very long time and has required a lot of research,” Cates began. “Essentially, the idea of this villain goes back decades in Marvel lore. I found a little piece of untouched territory in old Jack Kirby stuff, and it blew my mind that no one had ever touched it before. So, I called Tom Brevoort as soon as I thought of it. I was like, “Is it possible that no one has ever explained this thing?” He was like, “No.” And I asked, “Can I do it?” He said, “Yeah, totally.” So, this has been gestating in my head and it ended up being perfect for Thor.”
“This first arc really sets the stage for the ongoing run,” he continued. “Then every arc gets bigger. And in the first issue you’ll see three or four different mysteries that are questions raised by the first issue. We’ll answer those questions over the course of a few years. So, if people tune in and love the first arc stay tuned! Because things keep on getting bigger and and badder.”
What should the readers expect?
Whatever the Asgardian world has in store for us, it always proves to be better than the previous time, something that can never be predicted. So what caused the Dc superheroes fall, will only be understood after reading the new Thor saga.
