Gibbons' talent caught the attention of DC Comics in That year, Len Wein hired him as the artist of the Green Lantern series.
The following year Moore was also hired by Wein who had been seeking a writer for Swamp Thing due to the low sales the title had seen. Alan Moore reinvented the character and introduced new themes, dealing with social and environmental issues.
Both before and while working on Swamp ThingMoore submitted numerous proposals to the publisher, seeking to work with characters like the Martian Manhunter and the Challengers of the Unknownbut all ended up being rejected because DC had already developed projects with other writers for the characters with which he intended to work.
When the editor Dick Giordano finally approved the project that would become WatchmenMoore and Gibbons began working on planning the stories. Shortly after, the editor Julius Schwartz asked Gibbons if he could draw a Superman story.
Gibbons said he was available. When Schwartz told Gibbons he could also choose who wrote the story, he immediately requested Moore. They find him in a catatonic state.
There is a large alien plant stuck to his chest, its tendrils wrapped around his body. As they analyze the situation, the alien Mongul steps into the scene, revealing the name of the plant the "Black Mercy" and how it has put Superman into a coma, feeding him an extremely realistic and plausible dream based on his heart's desire while it consumes his bio-aura.
As he explains, Mongul touches the Mercy while wearing a pair of protective, oversized gauntlets. Interspersed with the scenes in the Fortress are pages of Superman's dream of living a normal life on his long-destroyed home planet of Kryptonhappily married to Lyla Lerrol with two children: Meanwhile, Superman's fantasy takes a dark turn.
His father Jor-El 's prediction of Krypton's doom was unfulfilled, leading to Jor-El being discredited and embittered. Superman's mother Lara has died from the "Eating Sickness", which has further isolated Jor-El from his son and the rest of his family.
The Kryptonian society within the dream is undergoing polarization and political upheaval. Jor-El has become disgraced after his prediction of Krypton's destruction proved to be inaccurate. Spurned by the public, he has become chairman of an extremist reactionary movement called the "Sword of Rao " which calls for a return to Krypton's "noble and unspoiled" past through the establishment of a theocratic totalitarian state under the leadership of Brother Lor-Em.
The Phantom ZoneKrypton's other-dimensional prison system, has become a major point of contention in this dreamworld. As it was developed by Jor-El, the House of El is unpopular with the public, who see the Zone as cruel and unusual punishment.
Kara Zor-El is brutally assaulted by anti-Zone protesters, who use the criminal Jax-Ur sentenced to an eternity in the Zone as a martyr and symbol. As a result, Kal-El decides to leave the city, only to witness Jor-El presiding over a political demonstration reminiscent of a Fascist rally.
The rally quickly dissolves into a riot due to a confrontation between anti-Zone protesters and the Sword of Rao. Superman gradually begins to wake up from the increasingly disturbing dream, with it finally dissolving with a scene of his "son", Van-El, slipping away from him as they visit the Kandor crater.
