When Legion of Super-Heroes: Millenium #1 was released in August, readers got a glimpse at a seemingly immortal and unique character, Rose Thorn, as she traveled through different futures in the DC Universe.
Writer Brian Michael Bendis knows that time travel is not a novelty in the comic world, and this issue was an enjoyable take on what the future holds for the character and others in the DCU. Along those same lines, Bendis revealed the issue contains clues to another of his pieces of work: Event Leviathan.
When asked about the release of Millennium and his upcoming relaunch of Legion of Super-Heroes, the writer told CBR in an exclusive interview, "And check out the Kamandi chapter in Millennium, there's Leviathan logos there. The story is big and that is a clue, by the way."
DC released Event Leviathan #4 this week, and the issue features a Batman versus Superman encounter, as Bruce Wayne interrogates Superman to find the missing piece of the Leviathan puzzle they both need. The issue also features Lois Lane, with some surprising twists and turns.
"Any character that's in Leviathan is someone I was deeply trying to get to and thought I wasn't going to get a chance to in the other books that I'm writing," Bendis added. "We handpicked them specifically for what they bring to the story and for what we thought we could offer them."
After the realization there were clues in Legion of Super-Heroes: Millenium #1, maybe it's time for readers to keep their eyes peeled as they read through the next issue. Or, they can just wait for the next installments in the writer's Event Leviathan series.
