"Let's make another JL title and call it JLA! They can be frenemies with the JL!"

"Let's have the various JLs fight each other and be REAL enemies!"

"Let's have JLA become JLC!"

"No! Let's have JLC become JLU!"

They can't seem to stick with anything for more than a couple of months. At this point, they should probably get rid of the concept of the ongoing series, and just put out 52 4-6 issue miniseries and just keep cycling them. For bonus points, have each mini be set in a different universe, so they can do 52 cycles, one per universe.

I know it sounds crazy at first but that is 90% of the way to what DC is already doing, just not formally.


There is no game plan: they're just a rudderless ship at this point.

I'll be buying this until it starts crossing over with all of the other JL books.


:-D

Looks much better than Luthor in the JLA. I like the lineup, bunch of B and C listers. Really like the Adam Strange desing and the cover art.

And WTF is she doing in her regular super-suit when we know that she's turning into a Red Lantern by April? Do these guys even TALK to each other when doing the art and stories with the same characters?

Apparently not.


DC spoils another of their books. :P

No one has said it yet so I will.

This deserves a counter reset. It shows abundant evidence not just of poor planning, but of absolutely NO planning whatsoever.

The counter should just stay at zero.

Title changes have happened in the past for a variety of reasons. This doesn't come across to me to be so much different than when this has happened in the past. The Collider change to FBP: Federal Bureau of Physics was a counter reset type thing -- this though, not so much.

To be fair, it was pretty stupid of them to not look into whether or not mooses can even read. There are studies out there, I'm sure. Lazy.

They probably can read, as long as they don't play sports for UNC... :wink:







Wonders if anyone got the reference...

:lol: Jesus, before the mass counter reset happens, let's consider the following:
Yes, the writers do talk to each other. It was revealed in interviews with Soule and Bedard over the last few weeks (Newsarama and IIRC, CBR) that Supergirl won't become a Red Lantern permanently. Actually they are using her short stint as a RL to get her past this whiny ragey teen she's been and mold her into the hero she used to be pre-reboot.

As far as why this new League forms in Canada early rumors were that something happens to the United States during Forever Evil that causes the need for a team to go north. Based on the country-wide devastation and government collapse already caused by the Syndicate theories are that the US itself may still be a (temporary?) wasteland post-Forever Evil so current citizens, including criminals, to head to Canada so maybe the JL forms a new team to handle that situation while the original team stays here to assist with clean-up and rebuilding.

In that case it makes sense to position themselves as a global League hence the name change.

didn't he play QB for Gotham U in the future?
Canadians make great slotbacks and O linemen in the CFL, and occasionally a DB or RB in the NFL, but they don't make great quarterbacks. Not since Dieter Brock!
