It’s no secret that, beginning in September with the end of Flashpoint, DC Comics is going to be starting a total of 52 comics over at #1 including many very iconic comics. Here, I’m going to list the ones that I find the most intriguing or that I’m going to continue to read. We’re going to start with the Superman titles that I plan on picking up (at least for the first issue).
Action Comics #1
This is the first Action Comics #1 since the title first released in 1938 and features Superman defending a world that doesn’t trust their first Super Hero. I’m interested in seeing the direction that this goes, as it seems to imply that Superman is, at least in this comic, the lone hero in the world.
One of my favorite comic book series was Young Justice. The team consisted primarily of Superboy, Robin and Impulse (who is now called Kid Flash in the comic world). Other original members included Wonder Girl, Arrowette and Secret. The team’s guardian was Red Tornado. The membership of the team changed as time went on. Characters code-names changed, members came and went, and the series came to an end in 2003 as many of the characters joined Teen Titans.
This fall on Cartoon Network, the series that I never thought would happen is coming. This is likely thanks to there already being a Teen Titans cartoon, so they don’t cause confusion by having another one.
