Synopsis for "Action"

Doctor Manhattan remembers arriving in the DC Universe to start over and meeting aspiring actor Carver Colman, who would later be murdered by his mother Charlotte after a failed blackmail attempt over his personal life. He learns that the DC Universe is actually a "Metaverse" that is in constant change, and in turn, the Multiverse reacts to changes in the DC Universe. Outside forces have been causing Superman's arrival on Earth to constantly shift forward in time, which makes Manhattan realize that Superman is the center of the Metaverse. When Manhattan intervened during the Flashpoint event, creating The New 52 era, he was warned by Wally West about the incoming consequences. Back in the present, Manhattan spares the defeated heroes, but makes sure they won't interfere with what's next. He then transports himself from Mars to Earth, causing Superman to awake from his coma.

Among the evidence of Carver Colman's death, there was a letter from his mother which was later burnt by his maid to protect his secrets and save his acting career. There was also a script describing the final scenes of Colman's last film, titled The Adjournment which a younger Johnny Thunder worked on the set of.

Trivia

  • The first appearance of Superman is April 18, 1938 but John notes the timeline keeps changing with Superman's arrival being pushed later and later by an "outside force." It is moved to 1956, then 1986, and then again. The first date is the release of Action Comics #1, the second represents the shift from Earth-Two to Earth-One, and the third is the release of The Man of Steel #1.
