DC Comics Confirms Dragon Ball Z DC Universe:
For years, fans have been arguing – who is stronger Goku or Superman? If there ever were a fight between the Super Saiyan and the Man of Steel, who would win that one!! Turns out there actually might be a possibility of the fight happening. The hypothetical scenario could be a reality soon since DC has just confirmed the fact that Goku and the entire Dragon Ball Z universe exists within the DC Universe. The anime lovers and the comic book lovers – set a date for that fight is happening.
SPOILER ALERT: Major Spoilers for The Flash #87 by Christian Duce, Luis Guerrero, Joshua Williamson, and Steve Wands. If you still have not read it yet, we suggest you look away….
The #86 of The Flash saw Barry Allen really crossing the true boundaries to his powers. The Speed Force granted the Flash with a golden form that radiated Speed Force. The only downside was that it was extremely dangerous to Barry’s life and to the people around him. The appearance of Barry Allen in his Golden Speed Form looks strikingly similar to that of Goku’s Super Saiyan form from Dragon Ball Z. In The Flash #87, the new form of Barry Allen is actually referred to as “Super Saiyan” in the issue. This means that the Dragon Ball Z universe actually somehow is present within the DC Universe.
The Flash had a violent altercation with Captain Cold and after having him nearly killed the flash gave him-self up to the authorities. He believed that he cannot be left free since his powers are pretty unstable and he might hurt innocent people. This was a result of a previous fight of the Flash with Hunter Zolomon and the Black Flash. Iron-Heights prison was in shambles within the heart of Central City. So the Flash and Captain Cold were sent to the Arkham Asylum of Gotham City.
Meena, the woman the Flash was previously dating, is now free and she is working with Wally West. Iris West has decided to take the help of an unlikely ally and the person she is seeking the help of is none other than Hartley Rathaway aka the Pied Piper. The Pied Piper and the Flash meet at Arkham Asylum.
The Flash is Pied Piper’s enemy number one but Rathaway could not give away the lucrative opportunity of helping out his former enemy and getting on his good sides for a change. Using a sonic gun specially designed to stabilize the speed force Barry is connected to, the Pied Piper manages to pull it off. The sonic gun helps in Barry being re-synchronized with the Speed force. But the fix is a temporary one and if Barry over uses the Speed Force, he would risk destabilizing his powers again and end up becoming a ticking time bomb, ready to explode at any moment.
Piper explains that Barry should keep it down a little bit lest he wants to go “Super Saiyan” again. That is a clear reference to Goku from the Dragon Ball Z universe. In the Frieza and the Planet Namek saga, Goku is the first of his species to achieve the Super Saiyan form and defeat the monstrous super-villain Frieza. It is still considered to be the greatest Dragon Ball arc of all time. But what is even more interesting is this – the story of Dragon Ball Z existing within the DC Universe is testament to the fact that there is a severe possibility of DC trying to make Goku and Superman come together and trade fists to see which one will fare stronger of the two in a deathmatch.
Let us see where DC takes this story from here.
The last movie to be released under the DC banner was Joker. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks — the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he’s part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker.
