"I wanted to create something that would remind you of the kid joy you felt when you went to the comic shop and you picked up something that was your summer event, right?" Snyder said. "It's stressful times, regardless of what side you're on, regardless of your political beliefs, I think that right now, we are exhausted by the news every day and I wanted to make something that would be pretty earth-shaking in his consequences and have big effects and change the DCU in important ways and be in-continuity, but also felt like when you pick it up, it's so immersive and crazy and reminds you of all the things you love about our characters, why they're aspirational, and also introduces you to brand new concepts, brand new territories, brand new characters, all that stuff. That was the goal. So I wanted you to pick it up and be like 'I am unleashing my inner rock god this summer and just going to the best rock-out concert I have ever gone to with the characters I love the most."
