1. Captain Marvel -- That's gotta be coming soon, right?
Sadly it'd be called Shazam! and suck it hard as reboot has him being called anything but Captain Marvel and honestly, it ended not in a great continuation of the Magic Marvels that I love and remember.

Only if it's handled well. Always a great character that DC has under-used (as with all characters not white).
ElijahSnowFan wrote:3. Black Lightning -- Maybe it wouldn't last a year, but you gotta give it a shot, right?
Sadly, I'd go for this, but like you doubt it would last as DC seems to hate black characters. Consider how the prior series have run.

I'd rather see a Ray Palmer and Ryan Choi series and done right. That being a teacher and his protege.

I'm in favor of a diverse line, so I certainly applaud DC trying new things, or old things in a new era, like GI Combat and so forth.
But really. Maybe all five of those books wouldn't make it. But wouldn't they have at least a snowball's chance in hell more than Batwing?
Booster only if they have him travel time to protect as part of the routine.
