Trivia / DC: The New Frontier

The Comic

  • What Could Have Been:
    • At one point, the story was going to feature an entirely original superhero named Cobalt, a woman abducted by aliens in the Forties and returned years later with superpowers in order to help fight off the Centre.
    • The story was meant to originally end more introspectively. Superman would've been revealed to be recovering on some island with Aquaman as his only friend there, and the two would discuss the pros and cons of humanity. Darwyn Cooke opted to remove this because it was too low-key...and gay.
