A new age of DC Heroes is bringing seven new books, and a whole heap of new heroes and villains to the DC Universe, starting this December with The Immortal Men, written by James Tynion IV and illustrated by Jim Lee.
This story brings a secret history of heroes and villains in the DC Universe. From the shadows, a council of five immortals work to prevent the extinction of humanity. At the DC Metal panel, Tynion IV’s excitement was palpable, “I’m fairly new to comics. I feel like I joined at a time where they stopped adding new characters to the universe. I felt like I had missed my chance to add something new. So, Jim and I just took over the entire secret history of the DC universe and now that’s changed.”
Every issue will have the same cover and for the first time in DC history, three-fold vertically folding covers.
Issue #1 Synopsis:
