CoiE Revisted

Via Warren Ellis comes a picture of the cosmos as it was 13 billion years ago, revealing objects that were probably formed a few hundred million years after the Big Bang (which, by the way, created the Universe, duh).

It is a fascinating look into the past and a welcome addition to Mankind's Pile o' Knowledge. I have a question, though: What was Superman doing there at the dawn of time?

The Spectre I can believe being there because he duked it out with the Anti-Monitor. But Superman? Must be a trick to test our faith in DC comics.

  2. Actually, Superman threw Doomsday back the beginning of time in the first Superman / Doomsday mini-series in the mid-90s. So that's probably what he's up to.

  3. Weren't there actually TWO Supermen at the dawn of time fighting the Anti-Monitor?

    Come to think of it, I don't remember the Spectre being there at all. Did DC retcon that again?

  4. Superman sure was at the dawn of time!

    Remember, all the heroes and villains built that huge magneto-electrical accelerator to give him the extra boost he needed to get there.

    Remmeber?

    Dale Gunn: I lost track of those two seconds after they began their little jog. Man! Talk about fast!
