    Abandoned Alan Moore comic would have destroyed the DC Universe | Blastr

    After the success of Watchmen, legendary comic book writer Alan Moore proposed something even more radical: destroying the DC Universe as we knew it.

    A Moore retrospective at What Culture has included a look at Twilight of the Superheroes, a miniseries proposal that Moore pitched to DC two years before leaving the company in 1989. Had DC accepted it, and Moore stuck around to write it, the series would have drastically changed the DC Universe for good, stripping it of all but its human (non-powered) heroes and having even them recant their ways.

    The story would have kicked off with John "Hellblazer" Constantine receiving a message in 1987 from 20 years in the future from Rip Hunter, who tells Constantine that cataclysmic events have left all of the world's governments and most of society in a state of collapse. Naturally, people turn to superheroes for guidance and leadership—but years of this have left many of the heroes themselves as nasty, cruel, power-mad tyrants.

    The heroes are divided into Houses, with Superman and his now-wife Wonder Woman leading the House of Steel and controlling the eastern half of the U.S., while Captain Marvel and family have established their domain in the west as the House of Thunder. There's also a House of Titans (former Teen Titans), a House of Justice (ex-Justice League members) and so on, but Steel and Thunder are the most powerful.

    The remaining super villains, led by the Joker and Lex Luthor, hole up in Nevada as the House of Secrets after a worldwide purge, while Batman leads the non-powered heroes in an effort to overthrow the two dominant Houses. All aliens, including the Green Lanterns, have been banished. But everyone soon gets involved in a plot to destroy the Houses of Thunder and Steel before a wedding between Superboy and Mary Marvel, Jr. unites them into potentially the most powerful force in the universe.

    Moore apparently intended to take down almost everyone in this epic storyline, leaving just Batman, the Shadow and the other surviving humans to throw off their old ways and rebuild society without the involvement of superheroes.

    So what happened? It's not clear whether Moore left before the project could take shape, or if DC simply got cold feet about an arc that would paint many of the company's characters in the worst light possible and then kill them off. Moore apparently did propose reviving the Multiverse (which had been dormant since 1985) so that other writers could work outside his continuity, but that idea didn't take hold until years after he had exited.

    The Twilight proposal briefly appeared online some years ago, only to be yanked by DC via the threat of legal action. Some theories suggest that ideas from the story later turned up in 1996's Kingdom Come, in which a younger generation of much less idealistic superheroes take over from their retired elders. Whatever the case may be, Twilight of the Superheroes is a true lost work from one of the comics' greatest living writers, available only to those lucky few who grabbed Moore's leaked proposal before it was hidden away forever.

    Would you have liked to have seen Moore tear down the DC Universe once and for all? Or did his proposal go too far and is better off left unseen?
    Wow. I actually would have liked to have seen this.

    7 fan posters make us wish Hollywood would get a Fables movie made | Blastr

    Once upon a time, ABC optioned the rights to Bill Willingham's Vertigo comic Fables—which posited a world in which fairy-tale characters like Snow White, Prince Charming and Pinocchio lived in our world. ABC let it die, but an enterprising fan envisioned Fables as a movie and cobbled together a series of posters that makes a compelling case.

    ABC, as we know, decided to scratch their fairy-tale itch with Once Upon a Time, but it's nice to fantasize a bit about an incarnation of Fables that featured actors like Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Henry Cavill, Peter Dinklage and Zooey Deschanel.
    Snarky little dig there. These posters make me want this to be real. 'Specially these three...

    Man...if you have not read Ennis' THE BOYS and the related mini's that go with...jayzus, you cannot call yourself a comic book fan. It's winding down, and like PREACHER(which up until now has been the benchmark of complete stories) it's not too late for you to catch up before it ends. I have so much sadness, being an Ennis fan, I know that even the rare person that gets to walk away at the end of this is STILL going to be ruined for life. And, funny thing is...I would not have it any other way. Ennis has such a magical way of twisting your feelings for severely flawed characters and STILL making you hope against hope that the tragic end you see coming can be avoided in some ungodly way. I have not heard anything about Adam McKay's film adaptation of the Boys for awhile, and maybe that's just as well. This, like Preacher, is one of those un-adaptable stories. Although, if you watch Ray Stevenson in 'The Other Guys' you can clearly see why I think he is the ONLY logical choice for Butcher.
