Consisting of an eponymous #0 issue, an eight-issue core miniseries, and 40 two-issue tie-in miniseries, "Convergence" spins out of the final issues of the weekly series, Earth 2: World's End and The New 52: Futures End. The story involves Brainiac collecting cities and inhabitants from various timelines that have ended, trapping them in domes on a planet outside of time and space and opening them up to see what happens. Notable during this event is the return of DC characters and past timelines from before the 2011 "Flashpoint" storyline that led to the creation of The New 52 DC Universe. Primarily Superman was at the center and as a result DC's Rebirth came into existence.
