With only one issue out so far, DC Comics’ Heroes in Crisis has already accumulated one of the highest body counts for a crossover event in recent memory. And judging by advance solicitation information for the fifth issue, the entire superhero community of the DC Universe may be at risk next.
While the superhero rehabilitation center of Sanctuary, where the debut issue of writer Tom King and artist Clay Mann’s started their emotional crossover story, was the subject of a tragic mass shooting resulting in the deaths of all the occupants including Wally West and Roy Harper. With the safe haven no longer secure, the secrets of the superhero community have begun to leak online, potentially threatening every hero linked to Sanctuary as their information becomes public. The solicitation text from DC is below:
