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. Flash and Arrow both … Continue reading
