Just a few short months ago, right before I started this blog, I had been reading some of my old comics. One of these comics was a D.C. Annual Superman from 1991 (part 2 of the Armageddon 2001 series), in which a character named WaveRider "merges into Superman's timeline" to get a better look at his future. Waverider was looking to see if Superman becomes the terrible, all-powerful Monarch. In this story, Superman dismantles the defenses of the world superpowers after an accidental atomic detonation kills all his loved ones in Metropolis. Aggresively taking the law into his own hands, Superman forces Batman to assemble J'onn J'onzz, Booster Gold, and Fire to help bring the Man of Steel in. In the melee, J'onn J'onzz is killed, forcing Batman to take Superman out for good. Helluva story...
