Top 5 Reasons All-Star Comics: Only Legends Live Forever Should Make Everyone's Trade Collection

It is the last day of September, which means we are literally two weeks away from the release of All-Star Comics: Only Legends Live Forever to comic book retailers, and three weeks away from the book being sold in the mainstream market.

Originally, the new Bronze Age JSA omnibus was supposed to be released in August of this year, but for some reason, the release date got pushed back to September, then later October. Fortunately, it appears the book will finally be hitting the stands sooner rather than later.

While the book is definitely a must for every fan of the Justice Society, it is also a must have for Huntress and Power Girl fans. Here are the Top 5 reasons All-Star Comics: Only Legends Live Forever should be a part of your collection.

Ashley Scott Set To Reprise Her Role As The Huntress For The CW's Crisis On Infinite Earths

For almost a year now, DCTV fans have known that a CW adaptation of Crisis on Infinite Earths was on the horizon as the big Arrowverse event for 2019. What no one anticipated was the network going all out with the event by inviting every actor who has ever portrayed a DC Comics character either on television or on film to participate in the crossover.

From Kevin Conroy who voiced Batman in various animation shows and video games, to Burt Ward who played Robin in the 1966 Batman show, to Smallville's Tom Welling and Erica Durance, and even Brandon Routh from the 2006 Superman Returns film reprising their roles, Crisis on Infinite Earths is increasingly becoming a love letter to DC in other media. Today, the 2002 Birds of Prey star Ashley Scott confirmed on Twitter that she will be reprising her role as The Huntress for the event:

Batman Day 2019: What If Helena Wayne Survived Crisis On Infinite Earths?

The idea for this post was actually presented to me by another fan on Twitter who requested that I write about how Helena Wayne's life would've panned out from her last pre-Crisis appearance (Crisis on Infinite Earths) to now. Specifically, what would her status quo be? What relationships would she still have? Would she still have the same career? Live in the same location? Wear the same costume? Have unique gadgets and vehicles to assist her in her Huntress missions? Would her role in the Justice Society be the same or change?

Top 3 Reasons Helena Wayne And Helena Bertinelli Should Be Separate Characters

Today is the canonical birthday of the pre-Crisis Helena Wayne Huntress as established in the back matter pages of Infinity Inc #7. 1984 was a great year to be a Huntress fan because in addition to helping kickstart Infinity Inc which further explored the legacy of the Justice Society, she was central to Earth-2's main event for that year: America vs the Justice Society of America. DC was also starting to recognise the popularity of the Huntress by this time that they began the initial work to launch the character onto her own ongoing series.

Then Crisis on Infinite Earths happened in 1985.

Justice League vs Doomsday Clock: The Journey Into DC's Past, Present, And Future Continues

Today is the release of both Doomsday Clock #11 and Justice League #31, both of which have a unifying theme concerning the DC Universe's susceptibility to change, but have yet to offer any insights into its future direction. At the moment, both stories are offering their own interpretations for why the DC Universe changes the way that it does.
