DC Comics Brings Some “Young Justice” #1s

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

DC has pretty much emptied out the stable of all the legendary characters that they will be revamping when the whole renumbering takes place. Here is the cast of the teenage heroes and young superteams that will be getting a #1 slapped on the title. Legion Lost sounds like it’s the most interesting of the bunch for me, and seems like something right up my alley. Do any of these catch your eye?


LEGION LOST

Seven heroes from the 31st century have traveled back to the present day. Their mission: Save their future from total annihilation. When the future tech they brought with them fails, they find themselves trapped in a nightmarish world and an ultimate struggle to survive. LEGION LOST #1 will be written by Fabian Nicieza and illustrated by Pete Woods, fresh off an acclaimed run of Action Comics.

Editors Note: This is the one out of the batch I’m most excited for, it’s got me written all over it!


LEGION OF SUPERHEROES

In the 31st century, the Legion of Superheroes is reeling from the loss of seven of their finest — and trying desperately to keep their youngest recruits alive against a series of terrible new threats. LEGION OF SUPERHEROES #1 will be written by fan-favorite Legion writer Paul Levitz and illustrated by Francis Portela.

Editors Note: Sounds interesting, will have to do the leafing through the comic before I decide to buy.


TEEN TITANS

Tim Drake is forced to step out from behind his keyboard when an international organization seeks to capture or kill super-powered teenagers. As Red Robin, he must team up with the mysterious and belligerent powerhouse thief known as Wonder Girl and a hyperactive speedster calling himself Kid Flash in TEEN TITANS #1, by Scott Lobdell and artists Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund.

Editors Note: Another, leafer comic that will be decided on the spot.


STATIC SHOCK

Virgil Hawkins has been gifted with incredible electrical powers. Adopting the persona of Static, he faces super-powered street gangs, raging hormones, homework, and girls in STATIC SHOCK #1, co-written by John Rozum and Scott McDaniel, with McDaniel also illustrating.

Editors Note: Hormones, homework and girls? I’ve done enough of that in my lifetime.
Correction, enough for two Lifetimes.


HAWK AND DOVE

It’s up to the living avatars of war and peace to root out the hidden forces who look to plunge the country into a deadly civil war in HAWK AND DOVE #1. The exciting new series will be written by Sterling Gates and illustrated by legendary superstar comics artist Rob Liefeld.

Editors Note: The premise sounds REALLY interesting, I really want to get more information from DC other than this little blurb.
