DC Releases... Spoilers?

For those who may not have picked up a copy of Time Masters: Vanishing Point #6 yet and consider reading the last two pages of a comic book to be a spoiler, stop reading this now.

For the rest of you, what is your opinion about DC releasing the last two pages of TM:VP #6 yesterday in their Source Blog? I don't think that anything much about the story was actually revealed, but I do think that perhaps DC was hasty in releasing the latest in their non-stop teasers for Flashpoint. What did DC gain by actually showing those two pages that they wouldn't have gained by saying, "teasers for Flashpoint in today's Time Masters: buy it now!" Are sales now taking a back-seat to hype at DC?

The End of Time is Not Near

According to a recent National Geographic article by Ket Than, some scientists from Cornell University have calculated the end of time. According to the theory of eternal inflation -- which also postulates the existence of a multiverse -- time must have an absolute end.

If probabilities are to work in a multiverse, there must be actual cutoffs that bring various universes to their ends, study leader Bousso says. According to the formulas used to calculate cutoffs, a universe that is 13.7 billion years old will reach its cutoff in about 5 billion years, his team concludes.

So now we know when Vanishing Point is! But don't worry, Hypertime fans. It seems that the same theory reveals that even though time will end in 5 billion years, the multiverse will go on. Assuming, of course, that there isn't another Crisis on the way.
