Since the arrival of DC Rebirth, there has been one question that has lingered, “What does Watchmen have to do with this?” As the end of the massive story revealed that Doctor Manhattan was somehow behind the events that caused The New 52 to be born, and is still messing with things today. Now, that story is coming ahead in a brand new story called “Doomsday Clock”, and it’ll be written by none other than Geoff Johns.
As the picture above shows, this will not only be a Watchmen comic of sorts, but also a Superman story, where the Man of Steel meets Dr. Manhattan in something that’ll definitely be remembered.
“It is the most personal and most epic, utterly mind-bending project I have ever worked on in my career,” Johns told Syfy Wire. “With Rebirth, I opened the door to Manhattan. Part of that was I loved the real-world influence Watchmen has. I put Manhattan out there, and always thought there was a Manhattan/Superman story to be told, but then … it grew. And grew. It took my heart and soul over. Still, at the core of it, there’s a being who has lost his humanity, and distanced himself from it, and an alien who embodies humanity more than most humans. I love the idea that Watchmen influenced DC, but what would that look like in reverse? And it goes well beyond that.”
Johns also promises that there wont be any tie-in comics, nor will this be an event comic. This is a contained story, it’ll affect the comic line for sure, but unlike other events it won’t spill out to others while it’s going.
“It is all about the story; it is only about the story. There are no crossovers. No watered down one-shots or mini-series on top of this one. This is a standalone story. There is only Doomsday Clock.”
