DC’s Heavy Hitters All Sporting New Looks Post Convergence

DC’s Spring event Convergence is all about looking back, but when DC returns to Earth 0 this June (still not used to that, btw) several of the comic book company’s big guns will be sporting new duds, some are just tweaks, others well… Drastic comes to mind. Superman seems to have reverted, back to his too cool for school t-shirt and jeans, and Wonder Woman has gone for the full cover.  Batman,  well,  whoever it is wearing the combat suit is a pretty wild choice, especially with the high caliber persuation he seems to be carrying.

I’ll go into more detail soon, but I just wanted to run thru the first offerings of DC’s relaunched line, ranking them first to worst with some quick thoughts, so let’s get right to it, huh?
