Following the events of INFINITE CRISIS, the Big Three of the DC Universe each took a year away from their superhero duties. It was a year without Superman, a year without Batman, a year without Wonder Woman, a year without the Justice League. But it wasn't a year without heroes. Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka and Mark Waid pen the weekly, yearlong series that redefined not only the DC Universe but what exactly it means to be a hero.
