EW notes exactly how DC likes to honor popular stories, such as they did with limitless Crisis. death of Justice league is no different. However, in this case, it’s honoring Superman #75, the death of Superman. Williamson explained exactly how he wished to pay homage to the traditional problem as well as exactly how his story will differ:
“I keep in mind the experience of reading the build-up to ‘The death of Superman’ as well as then waiting in the rain for my copy of problem #75.
