What's the source Wall?

Recommended Posts

What is the Source Wall? I've been meaning to ask about it since I saw it in the Superman/Batman vol.1 trade paperback, and seeing it in the JLU finale reminded me about it.


Are there any sites that would have an detailed description about it?


Thanks in advance for any help provided. :)

"The Source" is the energy force that powers the entire universe, at least in relation to the Jack Kirby DC Characters (New Gods, Apokalips, Darkseid, and related). There is a quasi religious aspect to it so DC has never gone to great lengths to explain it too deeply. It is largly unknowable. The reason for this is a giant wall around the Source which is aptly called the "Source Wall." On the wall are many cosmic giants, beings who once tried to breach the wall in order to learn the secrets of the universe. Their punishment is eternal entrapment on the wall from which "no one" can ever escape., "No one" referring to anyone but Darkseid who is the only one to ever do it (in the comics and the animated series). That's a pretty brief explanation but it's really all that matters. The Source may have connections to other powers, like Oa for instance, but the link is tenuous at best as it has never been firmly established.
