DC Shocker: Another C-List Superheroine Returns

The superheroine (and presumably her teammates) will appear in Justice League #18.



Source: Twitter

Geoff Johns revealed that another C-list character would be making her first appearance in the New 52 this weekend, when he revealed the alternate cover of Justice League #18 on his Twitter account.  The cover showed Platinum presumably attacking (or helping) the Justice League, with a caption warning readers that she was a threat to mankind.  The Metal Men were previously hinted at during the Throne of Atlantis crossover.

"Hey, I like the Metal Men," said at least one person reading this article after I called them C-list characters. 

This is just the latest in DC's trend of finally bringing back "fan-favorites" (although I use the term lightly in the Metal Men's cases) and established characters after 18 months of trying to force new creations down readers' throats.  While I'm sure that no one will forget characters like the White Rabbit, the Dollmaker, Peraxxus, and Massacre, it's about time that DC actually dip into its playbook and try something other than the "HERO FIGHTS EXTREME VILLAIN" that we've seen so much of in the New 52.

Too bad it wasn't Mercury on the cover. I was reading the Metal Man archives a few weeks ago and all I could think was "Mercury was a complete asshole early on"

I do too, but I love them at their silver-agiest. I can't say I want to see them in the 90sMarvel/Image influenced 52. Especially in one of the more 90-ish books.

Agreed on the Silver Age stuff!

But don't dismiss the Giffen/DeMatteis/McGuire stuff either from just a few years ago...

I liked that. I liked the Rouleaux (sp?) mini. Both of which had an absence of angry grit (other than some clenched teeth on that cover you posted :lol: ). I have no faith in the Justice League book is my main point.

If that ever happens, let me know, and I'll be happy to prove you wrong. :P

(At the very least, I'm sure Shuster wouldn't go along with the armored monstrosity that Dan and the Gang call "Superman's costume" in the DCnU.)

Sure he would. His eyesight was so bad, he wouldn't even notice! :P
