As the DC Universe slides further into darkness the trinity of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman has splintered. An unseen threat they have overlooked has slowly been manipulating events and now that they no longer trust each other it makes a play to set the universe right. From one will come many.
Since I wanted to expand my DC knowledge past Green Lantern I decided to branch out to some of the well known events. Mainly the Crises. This simplified map provides a clear and easy story flow for everyone from a brand new reader to the most hardcore DC fan. There are tons of other Infinite Crisis crossover titles that is not listed.
Events from this volume lead directly into 52!
Infinite Crisis: Broken Trinity
JLA 115-119: Crisis of Conscience
Infinite Crisis 1-5 (1/2) stop Superman Vs Superman fight begins
Action Comics 836
Adventures of Superman 649
Infinite Crisis 5 (2/2)
Infinite Crisis 6-7
Infinite Crisis Secret Files – put here so villain is not revealed early
OMAC Special – leads to Checkmate Bind
Justice League 0 – actually takes place after 52, concentrates on the trinity.
Looking back I would have thrown the Rann/Thanagar Special where Kyle Rayner gets his Ion powers back. It would link to my Green Lantern binds.
