So, we’ve seen Batfleck and we’re preparing to see him join forces with the Justice League on the big screen, but at some point you may have found yourself wondering, “What’s Batman doing in the comics?” Modern superhero storylines have gotten pretty crazy out of necessity. There’s only so many ways to tell a story after numerous decades of a character’s existence. Captain America is freakin’ Hydra now! And you’ve probably heard that Thor is a woman — or at least that the wielder of Mjolnir is (it’s Jane Foster, by the way), but what is the original God of Thunder up to?

And DC... well, DC has kinda started over. DC Rebirth marks an all-new timeline, picking and choosing a few elements from the New 52 and pre-Flashpoint era, but taking its time in revealing to the reader which elements those actually are. Even crazier is the (soon-to-be spoiled) crossover the entire DC Universe is building towards.

Long story short, it’s hard to stay on top of our favorite comics, so here’s a breakdown of current comic book storylines. Spoilers abound!
