52 (comics) - Spin-offs

Spin-offs

Taking advantage of the popularity of the series, DC issued several series of comics based on the individual threads of 52 that began several months after 52 ended. Booster Gold (vol. 2) is an ongoing series that sees the eponymous hero and Rip Hunter travel through time to fix history as "the greatest superhero never known". The six-issue 52 Aftermath: The Four Horsemen mini-series covers the Four Horsemen's battle with Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. Black Adam: The Dark Age, another six-issue mini-series, follows Teth-Adam's quest to restore his powers and bring Isis back to life; it takes place between the end of 52 and Mary Marvel's corruption in Countdown.

Two strands of the 52 story were taken and put together with back-ups from the new Countdown story. Countdown to Adventure looks at the fate of space-travelers Adam Strange, Animal Man, and Starfire in their new roles after their journey over the course of eight issues, with a back-up story following Forerunner. Countdown to Mystery is another eight-issue series looking at the new Doctor Fate and a back-up story focusing on Eclipso.

These include:

  • Booster Gold vol. 2 – The further adventures of Booster Gold, Supernova, and Rip Hunter as they try to preserve the fractured timeline.
  • Black Adam: The Dark Age – In the aftermath of World War III, Black Adam tries to recoup his losses, for both his powers and personal life.
  • Infinity Inc. – Steel and the remaining members of Luthor's Everyman Project team together to form a new Infinity Inc.
  • 52 Aftermath: The Crime Bible: Five Lessons of Blood – The Question and Batwoman investigate crimes leading them deeper into the Crime Bible.
