Hmmm a NEW female Nightwing where have I seen that mentioned before….
O wait an Anonymous leak on /co/ over a month ago, which at the time I brushed off as just someone bullshitting as people do from time to time there.
>There will be three new Justice League titles launching in April. The already announced JUSTICE LEAGUE CANADA will replace JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA thru August as a result of events in FOREVER EVIL. The others will spin out of FOREVER EVIL as well:
>OUTLAW JUSTICE. In this modern day western adventure series, superheroes have been outlawed in post-FOREVER EVIL America and the most wanted man in the country is Dick Grayson. He will lead an underground band of heroes operating behind enemy lines, hunted by both sides.
>YOUNG JUSTICE will focus on the lives and loves of the next generation of superheroes. This series will include THE NEW 52 debut of heroes like: Aqualad and Miss Martian.
>All of these series will be part of the build up to September 2014’s big event: JUSTICE LEAGUE UNITED, a 52-week long Justice League series, featuring heroes and villains from across time and space, led by Booster Gold and a popular returning hero not seen since THE NEW 52 started.
>Also debuting in April, THE ALL NEW NIGHTWING #30. Who is the mysterious new guardian of Gotham City? Not even Batman knows HER secrets.
She isn’t debuting in that issue really, but looking at things, #30 really IS the most likely issue for her to take over the Nightwing book, and this look into the future issue of Batman seems like an idea that just came up very recently cause Caupllo needed more time to finish pencils on the final issue of Year Zero and this was posted over a month ago.
Later in that same thread he also says.
>RED HOOD #30 will also launch a new direction and creative team.
And while that person seems to have been an issue off (which also could have just been plans changing slightly) Red Hood is indeed getting a new creative team post Forever Evil as was announced today.
Coupled with the fact that Jeff Lemire made and then deleted a Tweet teasing a new book called Justice League _N___D or something like that (really the only two possibilties for the blanks were United and Unlimited)
I think this leak actually has a lot of credibility to it now, I mean it could all be a crazy coincedence but is that really likely?
I don’t like the concept of “SUPERHERO’s BANNED IN AMERICA, which I presume happens cause Lex is probably going to save the world during Forever Evil and gain HUGE influence. Though if its pulled off right Outlaw Justice could be a fun book.
But on the other hand, Young Justice book with Aqualad (who I guess will be Kaldur or they might call him Jackson like preboot, but whatever you know Black Manta’s son) and M’gann, if this is real DC, PLEASE GIVE THIS A GOOD CREATIVE TEAM DC, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. It’s been ages since a good Teen team book. And what other characters could be there with our lovely lovley Kaldur and Meggles??? Im guessing it’ll be structured kind of like the YJ animated series with them being tied very closely to the League to really differentiate it from Teen Titans (and cause well the YJ animated series was popular so why not reuse a concept from a recent popular thing)
Regardless the reintroduction of those characters is long overdue.
O and im guessing the hero paired up with Booster in united is Ted Kord, they’ve been hinting at him coming back as of late and really everyone loves the two of them together so why not give the fans what they want. I just hope Ted’s return doesn’t mean DC is screwing Jaime over, that would be upsetting.
