''DC 1,000,000'' (also known as ''DC One Million'') was Creator/DCComics' CrisisCrossover for the year 1998. Written by then-current ''[[JusticeLeagueOfAmerica JLA]]'' writer Creator/GrantMorrison, the basic idea came from his imagining what the DC Universe would be like if DC Comics continued publication until flagship title ''ComicBook/ActionComics'' reached issue #1,000,000 (which he calculated would take until the 853rd century if the numbering continued uninterrupted).

The core of the crossover was a core 4-issue miniseries written by Morrison. In addition, each of DC's then-running titles had a tie-in [[UnusualChapterNumbers issue #1,000,000]] showing what life was like for the protagonist's future counterpart. Some of the tie-in issues were linked directly to the main plot of the miniseries, while others were independent side-stories that contributed to the WorldBuilding.

The story begins when the League is [[TimeTravel visited]] by their [[LegacyCharacter descendants]] from the 853rd century. It turns out that Franchise/{{Superman}} is still alive then, but had retired to live ''inside the sun'' for centuries, but had recently given word that he was coming out, and the future civilization is going to throw him a big 'welcome back!' celebration- and the original League are guests of honor! To make sure that Earth is safe [[SanDimasTime while the league is gone]], the future League (known as "Justice Legion A") will stay in the present in their place.

In the future, the League members have various adventures (detailed in the crossover's tie-in issues) while the central miniseries focused on the Justice Legion's adventure on present-day Earth.

It turns out that the solar system of the future has been massively {{terraform}}ed. Not only that, but several planets are dedicated to specific heroes: Mercury to ComicBook/TheFlash, Venus to ComicBook/WonderWoman, Earth to ComicBook/GreenArrow, Pluto (which serves as a prison for the criminally insane) to Franchise/{{Batman}}, etc. The only planet missing is Uranus (probably to avoid [[UranusIsShowing the pun about it]]) destroyed and replaced by a ''second'' sun - Solaris, the Living Sun (actually an evil ArtificialIntelligence surrounded by a star-sized plasma field) which was defeated by Superman and reprogrammed to be helpful, overseen by that century's Comicbook/{{Starman}}.

Unknown to the heroes, the hero-swap is part of an elaborate and sinister plot 830 centuries in the making. Soon, the Justice Legion find themselves trapped in the past, and the Justice League are on the run in a strange and unfamiliar time.

Unknown to the heroes, [[spoiler:Solaris has allied itself with the immortal villain VandalSavage and Starman ([[FaceHeelTurn who was sick of having to fulfill his heroic legacy]]) to take the chance to kill the original Superman! Starman brought back with himself a computer virus that infected Earth's computers; the heroes in the present realized that the only way to get it out was to create a new vessel for it... which resulted in Solaris' actual creation! Meanwhile Savage attempted to smuggle Kryptonite to the future that could then be used to kill Superman; however, due to the fact that the place where it was hidden (the planet Mars) had become merged with The MartianManhunter, the plot fails - instead, Superman gains access to GreenLantern's power ring and uses it to destroy Solaris once and for all. Savage is apparently [[KarmicDeath caught in the nuclear destruction of Montevideo]], and Starman [[RedemptionEqualsDeath dies while making a last-minute]] HeelFaceTurn.]]

In the end, [[spoiler:(the future self of) Superman is reunited with (a clone of) Lois Lane (also arranged by the heroes)]] and everybody is happy. The heroes then switch back to their proper times.
