[[WMG: Darkseid will come back, and he'll be using Nekron's power.]]
Considering Darkseid's obsession with Anti-life, and the fact that Nekron is basically ''Anti-Life''. If anyone were to have an interested in trying to reverse-engineer or even control Nekron, it'd be Darkseid. Maybe they'll make a deal, maybe Darkseid will sneak out of the afterlife.

When Thanos learns that his army is in peril, he brings in his secret weapon. While [[Comicbook/TheMightyThor Thor]] opens a portal to Asgard to retrieve weapons and gather reinforcements, Thanos sends a black ring through Thor's portal. It finds it's target, and a terrible, booming voice says "[[Myth/NorseMythology Odin]] of Asgard... RISE!" With that, the king of the Norse Gods is but a puppet of Thanos, putting the entire universe in jeopardy. [[Comicbook/GreenLantern The Guardians of the Universe]] over in the DCU sense this great power being corrupted in another world, and choose to try to aid that world's heroes. They cannot directly help them, but they do so indirectly by sending in two of each color ring into the MarvelUniverse to choose someone worthy enough to wield the light. Two Green Lantern rings, representing willpower, seek out hosts. They choose Comicbook/{{Daredevil}} and strangely, Comicbook/{{Deadpool}}, who says [[ActorAllusion he got it because of]] [[Film/XMen Ryan]] [[Film/GreenLantern Reynolds]]. Next, two Blue Lantern rings look for people who inspire great hope in others. One goes to [[Comicbook/TheAvengers Steve Rogers]], the original ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, and the other to [[Comicbook/XForce Cable]]. Then, two yellow rings search for new members for the Sinestro Corps. Those who are chosen must be able to inspire great fear in others. Soon enough, [[Franchise/SpiderMan Carnage]] (who probably isn't really currently dead) and Comicbook/GhostRider are inducted. Ghost Rider tries to keep AxeCrazy Carnage in check. Then, red rings rampage around the Earth, looking for those with great rage in their hearts. ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} is chosen due to his occasional "Berseker Rages" and TheHulk also receives a ring because the madder Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets. The orange rings soon find their hosts who are filled with greed: [[Franchise/SpiderMan Norman]] [[ComicBook/DarkReign Osborn]] and DoctorDoom. The violet rings zoom everywhere looking for women filled with love, and find [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Invisible Woman]] and [[Comicbook/TheMightyThor The Enchantress]]. The last rings to find hosts are the indigo ones who require compassion, which they find in [[Franchise/SpiderMan Spider-Man]] and ComicBook/{{Cyclops}}. Together, these light-wielding heroes and villains manage to fight off Thanos's undead forces. Thanos then has a vision of Death, and she rejects him for his endeavors, never truly wanting the whole universe to die. Afterwards, here is much cleanup to do, and many have died in the conflict, but the world was saved. The rings return to the Guardians, and all seems back to normal. That is, until the White Lantern appears in the MarvelUniverse just as it had in the DCUniverse...

[[OmnicidalManiac Thanos]] opens up a portal to view other realities and sees the Blackest Night event unfold in the DCUniverse. Being in love with Death, he sees recreating this event in his own world as the perfect tribute to his love. He finds a way to travel to the DCU and steals one of the black rings. He brings it back to his world and tries to replicate it and succeeds. Using these rings, he raises the dead in hopes of using those already in Death's grip to bring more into her servitude. Rings fall all across the universe, landing in graves or other places where dead bodies are stored. Eerie voices speak from the rings. "[[ComicBook/TheCloneSaga Ben Reilly]] of Earth... RISE!" "[[TheHulk Emil Blonskey]] of Earth... RISE!" "[[{{CaptainMar-Vell}} Mar-Vell]] of Hala... RISE!" Similar calls echo throughout the universe, and soon, the dead, empowered with their new rings, go and seek out their prey. The heroes of Earth valiantly fight off the forces of Death which are revived versions of deceased enemies, but many of them cannot bring themselves to fight those they had once loved of cared for. However, they soon come to terms that these are not their loved ones, merely twisted reflections of them brought in to confuse and weaken the heroes.

ComicBook/TheSandman's status of continuity with the main DC Universe is ambiguous, even going by the narrative of TheSandman itself. Whenever Death is not in continuity, she creates a split aspect of herself so that DeathTakesAHoliday is a non-issue. The result is Nekron. The reason why Nekron is [[OmnicidalManiac Nekron]] comes from being a split aspect. Didi is just as responsible for life as she is for death, but the Nekron aspect was only designed to be in charge of death. Without an opposite to balance him, Nekron [[StrawNihilist couldn't see the value of life]], and thus [[LackOfEmpathy couldn't care for it.]] Given [[TimeAbyss how old Nekron is]], this was a split aspect back when Didi was the ''Grim'' Reaper instead of the PerkyGoth [[DontFearTheReaper release]] we've come to love, which made Nekron's descent into [[OmnicidalManiac cosmic ecocide]] all the quicker and unavoidable. Its taken so long for Nekron to enact his ComicBook/BlackestNight plan because only recently before it has Sandman continuity [[CanonDiscontinuity was booted out of mainstream DC.]] Now that the true Death has returned, Nekron is shafted. Black Hand's creepy necrophilia is probably the result of ''very'' misunderstood {{Fetish}}/a Thanos Complex for Didi.
