Dan DiDio and Jim Lee on the Pre-New 52 Continuity Showing Up in The Multiversity: Everything Is In Play

During DC Comics's newest All Access video, co-publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee answered a handful of fan questions about the future of the line, including one question that drew a very different answer out of the pair than it has in the past.

Ever since the launch of the New 52 publishing initiative, DC has been careful to stress that the New 52 universe is the DC Universe we've all been reading since Crisis On Infinite Earths, and that the changes made to it since Flashpoint have wiped out the previous continuity and any chance of seeing those characters in publication again.

Asked about that in the context of Grant Morrison's The Multiversity, though? They weren't so hard-line.

"I think Multiversity includes all continuity if you want to be perfectly honest," DiDio said, with Lee voicing his agreement. "I think the goal of Multiversity is to show that everything is in play, every world exists and everything that we've done matters."

"Talking to Grant, when he takes on a character, he reads every story and in his mind everything has happened and he's telling stories that are in continuity with everything," Lee added.

The Multiversity: The Society of Super-Heroes: Conquerors of the Counter-World #1 by Morrison and Chris Sprouse will be in stores tomorrow.
