In preparation for next week’s DVD release of the Superman/Batman: Public Enemies animated movie, KC’s latest recommendation at the Westfield blog is for the graphic novel. He makes some excellent observations about its importance and status in the larger DC mythos.
Public Enemies served as the pivotal turning point for the entire DCU by wrapping up many of DC’s ongoing major storylines and sewing seeds for what would become Infinite Crisis (which Luthor confirms in the last panel of the story). It also launched some of the slowly growing “darkness” that began to blanket the DCU and its characters with the “death” of Captain Atom, as well as Superman coming very close to breaking his code against killing.
