DC IDIOTIC IDEA OF CREATRING 4 JL TEAMS
« on: January 26, 2018, 08:48:23 PM »
In April DC will try again with what failed b4, that's creating multiple JL with the core members spread unto multiple teams. JL works best with the big 6 with MM and Cyborg being somewhat interchangeable. That doesn't mean you can't include secondary characters, but any JL without at least the big 3 that's SM, WW and BM are just stand-in for the real team. Now DC wants to again split the core members into 4 teams, I don't see it being successful. Marvel have tried  number of times similar concepts with the Avengers & X-men over the yrs but after a while no matter who the creator was unless you had a certain number of cache members  the book didn't sell and was cancelled.


   Anyway that my beef any comments on this is welcomed.https://www.cbr.com/justice-league-post-metal-plans-four-new-rosters/

While i've no problem with the multi-team concept, those line ups arent doing anything for me.

Question, as i collect the current JL book with Bats, Lobo, Atom etc...is this and the other JL book going to be cancelled in favor of those new books?
I would think so, but would like to confirm.

Well, fuck  I may leave the JL shit alone for a bit then.  If anything they should do a a JLU style of series.  With a rotating cast for each book or arc.

It's a miniseries, leading into a single ongoing. No need to freak out.

So cancelling the two ongoings just gives them a chance for yet another (or more likely multiple) relaunch of a JLA book down the road?

Right. These minis are leading to the upcoming JL book that Scott Snyder will be writing.

Okay, as long as the line ups are better than the ones in those minis. Yeesh!

I actually don't mind the line-ups. They can lead to some interesting character moments. I especially like the Batman & WW teams.

The new League will have some members from these minis, in addition to the usual suspects.

He's going to be on Superman. We'll see how that goes...

It's going to go the way it always does. He'll have some good ideas and 5% will be executed well, 10% will be extreme fuckups, and 85% will be bland bullshit ignoring pretty much any development the character has ever had.

I don't know, Bendis is actually pretty good with solo characters. It's his team books that suck horribly.
