Spoilers: Dark Knights Rising The Wild Hunt, Death and Mystery

Dark Knights Rising The Wild Hunt (2018) #1 is out this week. This tie in features a pretty significant death of a recently added Batman. In addition, there is a mystery character who has been kidnapped. A character who may tie in to Grant Morrison’s Multiversity (considering he wrote part of the book it makes sense). Check out the spoilers below.

First up here is the solicitation:
The Dark Knights ride through the farthest reaches of the Multiverse to track down the unlikeliest of teams: The Flash, Cyborg, Raven and Detective Chimp. The mission: keep these heroes from completing their desperate quest to save all of existence! Plus, Challengers’ Mountain crackles with dark energy that will release an army of the world’s worst nightmares into the streets of Gotham City! This one-shot also answers the question: Where are the Metal Men? And who is the latest addition to the team?
Sure, it answers all the questions in the solicitation, but also leaves us with another mystery.
Looks like a certain Scarlet Speedster is no longer so Red.

But Sadly it leads to Red Death.

Like I said, we get many answers to questions, but get more like the mystery of a new universe. And a reference to the Ultima Thule.

And another reference to the Ultima Thule, the ship made of songs.

We meet the kidnapped character.

And a better look at him.

At first I thought he looked like the Unknown Soldier. However, with being called a cosmic character, and being called one of the most powerful people in the Multiverse, and references to Ultima Thule, it looks like it is Nix Uotan, the Superjudge who first appears in Grant Morrison’s Multiversity #1 (available on eBay) .

    1. The Punisher who Laughs (and Rides a Flaming Cosmic Harley).. come on DC and Marvel, we need this crossover.. because Poyo demanded it!

  1. Gotta be Nix, was kinda hoping Allen Adam would pop up, but Ill take any Multiversity stuff I can get.
    Kind of a collector noob, but do character deaths like this hurt their recent first appearance?

  2. Here’s a question….they mention a “Darker Authority” in one of the spoiler shots above. Does anyone think this may allude to the Rebirth version of The Authority? Along the lines of Stormwatch in New 52?

    1. I would absolutely love that, but that’s being done in wildstorm. So far they’re reintroduced Angela spica, Jenny Sparks, and I believe the doctor… waiting on Swift and Jack. Midnighter and Apollo never really went anywhere.

  3. It would be awesome if there suddenly was a Cosmic Unknown Soldier, blasting Nazi tanks with his super ray blasts!
    Could be Negative Man from The Doom Patrol?

  4. It’s Dark Waverider which in turn makes Barbatos Dark Monarch aka Dark Hawk from Dark Hawk and Dark Dove.
    Oh wait this is Dark Nights Metal not Dark Nights Armageddon 2021.
    In all seriousness though I hope the reveal is epic and not a head scratching or eye rolling whimper.
