#NUVOpop: Big Banging Spoils of Convergence Finale PLUS Secret Wars


One day I'll figure out a way to make that titles shorter.

Okay! We are all done with Convergence folks! And Secret Wars. Man is Secret Wars good. It's not even fair.

So here's the run down of what happened these final two weeks in Convergence!

Convergence 7: The showdown between heroes and villains reaches full throttle! However it is soon revealed Deimos is harvesting the negative energy of the villains and will eventually kill them. The villains, upset at the betrayal, join forces with the heroes to defeat Deimos. Telos soon intervenes and has Deimos nearly incapacitated, hoping to end the fight and learn what his name once was. Deimos escapes and Parallax (Hal Jordan) is sick of the games. He quickly obliterates Deimos. Telos reveals Deimos had the energy of a large group of time travelers and destroying him unleashed utter chaos upon the multiverses. Oracle (the watcher from issue 6) is destroyed as a result of Deimos's death and says to the Justice League (New 52) that their futures are unknown to him and reality is breaking apart.

Convergence 8: With Deimos dead, the entire multiverse is in peril! Time is not how it should be AT ALL. So Waverider (formerly Booster Gold) releases Braniac from his prison. Everyone is reluctant to trust him, but Braniac is seemingly reformed, since he saw his many lives throughout the multiverse. He sends Flash and Supergirl back first (they must die in order for the multiverse to survive- see Crisis on Infinite Earths). Once thhat is done, the rest of the cities return to their universes. Braniac leaves, Telos is severed from the planet, and Earth 2 Green Lantern is able to harness the power of the green to give birth to a new planet for the heroes of Earth 2.

Convergence Flash: Flash and Superman from Earth-9 who is REALLY fudging smart. He tries to explain the situation to Flash and eventually Flash punches him in the face because why not.
