52/WW III Part One: A Call to Arms

    (DC, 2007)

After Infinite Crisis, the continuity of almost all the DC titles was shifted ahead one year in time. The resulting changes—some major, some minor—were supposed to be explained in the weekly 52 series. However, the storylines in that title grew to such a point that there was no room for these explanations. The WWIII event, four issues all released on the same day, set about to answer some of the fans’ questions.

The event sprung from the pages of 52 and dealt with Black Adam’s war against the nations of the world.

This first installment tells us the reasons behind Father Time’s change of appearance, why Jason Todd adopted the Nightwing identity and how Jason Rusch and Firehawk first came together to form Firestorm.
