    Rereading, this was better the first time, spread across the line of DC superhero comics, than in this collected but abridged form.This height of Morrisonian hyper time and space stuff seems like Gardner Fox and Otto Binder via Mort Weisinger s Superman sensibilities to me this time Appropriate, but if this is not as successful as Mutiversity from Morrison, recently I do love his JLA, the James Robinson Starman whose dad and descendant appear here, and I like the Resurrection Man appearance from his creators, Dan Abnett, Andy Lanning, and Jackson Guice.Oh, and Vandal Savage such a great villain.Mildly recommended.

    I recently reread One Million, and it was worth the time It s a fun book, based on the highest of comic book high concepts what would the millionth issue of a current DC monthly title look like Or specifically, what happens if you age the DC Universe than 85,000 years The results are mostly good This trade paperback collects the highlights of one of those multi title events that the big comic companies love so well In this one, the heroes of the extreme future are evidently feeling nostalgic, and so they visit the heroes that they re part of the legacy of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, and Starman who I m a big fan of, but still all meet their future counterparts while an android Hourman hangs out in the shadows They seem like nice enough guys, and their plan to switch places so the 21st century league can compete in a kind of Chrono Olympics seems benign enough Too bad everything goes to Hell SPOILERS The villains for this story are immortal Vandal Savage and Morrison s creation Solaris the Tyrant Sun They both make great initial gambits, Savage strapping four members of the Teen Titans into nuclear suits and firing them at world capitals pretty much the second the heroes leave for the future Simultaneously, Solaris activates a virus that infects organisms and machines worldwide, plunging the world into madness and death Yay There are some rough patches in this book, owing at least partially to the fact that the entire One Million storyline was spread out over a dozen monthly titles and written and illustrated in a cacophony of clashing styles and skill levels The story s only improved by just giving us the highlights though I do remember enjoying Mark Waid s story of The Flash fighting Heat Wave and Commander Cold even if the result is kind of choppy in places The heroes of the future labor to save the present while the heroes of today gamely defeat the future s most terrible adversary Not the very best of comics, but the very good It avoids most of the problems of an ensemble book, giving most of the heroes a chance to shine though poor Future Flash and Future Wonder Woman sure get thrashed , and having clear goals and motivations for both antagonists and protagonists throughout.Something that was weird is seeing that Morrison came up with some really key phrases and concepts that DC ham handedly co opted for 2006 s Infinite Crisis Superman Prime is the future s name for the original 20th century Superman, who 85,000 years later has a Fortress of Solar Solitude in the Sun, and has emerged for the first time in millennia in a veritable Second Coming of DC s most perfect solar hero The 852nd century s Superman uses his fists to literally punch through time, almost killing himself in the process, a process that Prime replicates in Infinite Crisis Comics Plagiarizing themselves since well, forever.

    Grant Morrison delivers another great big concept Justice League story, with most of the team transported to the 853rd century The TPB is kind of loose, since the crossover affected SO MANY books There are recap pages talking about things like the Bizarro plague that I wish I could ve seen And Solaris, the evil star, isn t a great villain, but I do like how he uses Vandal Savage Also neat is how the JLA members that don t get transported forward are the ones that don t have their own solo series There s a nice tribute to Superman at the end.

    an unpleasant reminder of how awful DC marvel were at compiling trade paperbacks before the mid 2000s i don t even want to get into how horribly put together this thing is however, it s an interesting companion piece to morrison s later, always stunning Superman All Star we re introduced here to Solaris the Tyrant Sun, as well as the Superman Dynasty but really, avoid this thing and wait until the day when they put together all of the issues of DC One Million this one only has about 1 3 of the stories from the crossover event what a rip.

    SPOILER ALERTOkay, so I am so disappointed in DC Comics 853rd century Really We as a species barely made it out of the 20th century What s worsethe fact that there are NO original ideas that far into the future every hero just mimics steals their superhero identity from the original heroes Keep moving on superman is still alive that far into the future, after hibernating in the center of the sun for 15,000 years The original man of steel was an extraterrestrial that could dodge bullets, lift locomotives, and leap vast distances not fly But now Now the guy is able to punch holes into the very fabric of time space continuum, recreate entire solar systems worlds as in this graphic novel bringing krypton and family and so on back from cosmic dust , and do whatever else his mind wants him to do And this is all because he can absorb solar radiation There are how many DC Comics and Marvel Comics characters that rely on solar radiation Can they all evolve into gods I don t know, this story was just too absurd for me to really enjoy it Only good part was future batman explaining about how the 20th century bat cave computer was archaic and not good enough to achieve necessary goals I also liked the costumes of the future But with that in mind that far into the future and there is still no peace There is still a need for heroes Sentient organics have not evolved pass requiring clothes and mega cities Fail Epic fail UPDATED 11.04.20151 last thing, or 2the whole story removes the concept of Free Will as their destinies were looped and finite Also, the heroes had 0 f s given about the future in the sense that they created the powerful enemy to stop something that went wrong in the present Their action of designing and manufacturing Solaris had direct impact on the future and all those countless lives destroyed or snuffed out by the enemy They made their own worse enemy.How is that heroic This type of time travel conundrum and travesty is just 1 of the reasons I dislike time travel stories and concepts
