Batman, Superman, The Flash and Wonder Woman were born in the pages of DC Comics well before I entered this world and will live on long after I've exited it. I can't even fathom them being put out to pasture, but artist Eddie Liu has!
Liu has put together a series of artwork depicting Batman, Superman, The Flash and Wonder Woman as they could appear at retirement age. They say that's the golden years, but Father Time hasn't treated them like gold. Diana Prince is a chain-smoker, Barry Allen has a smutty-mustache, and Batman and Superman sport fully-gray beards that surround their wrinkled skin.
Check out Liu's series of retired DC superheroes in our gallery at the bottom of the page.
In Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
