Geoff Johns to Ruin More Characters in New Justice League of America with David Finch

Not content with writing the worst iterations ever of Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Batman, and the Flash in Justice League, Johns will be launching a new Justice League of America book with David Finch and a whole new cast.

At Toronto Fan Expo this weekend, DC Comics announced a new Justice League title by Geoff Johns and David Finch. Justice League of America will feature a different cast than Justice League: clockwise from left in the picture are Vibe, Catwoman, Steve Trevor, Green Lantern Baz, Stargirl, Hawkman, Green Arrow, Katana, and the Martian Manhunter. The extended cast gives Johns the opportunity to write a whole new group of characters as bickering, immature 12 year olds.

"It worked so well in Justice League," said Johns, we imagine. "It's actually a part of DC's master plan to write comics geared at an audience of people with the mentality of 12 year old boys, in the hopes of recapturing the success the industry experienced in the nineties."

The plan was working smoothly, with DC sales up overall, but has run into some obstacles, with Rob Liefeld's Charlie Sheen-like Twitter meltdown over the past week being the latest example. Liefeld, the poster child for juvenile nineties comics, had been writing 10% of DC's output. "You reap what you sow," said Johns (not really - he won't talk to us).

Johns would not confirm that this third Justice League team would set the stage for DC's upcoming Trinity War crossover event, saying instead (in this article's only real quote), "It could be, but you’re a little off."

As to worries that Johns might be taking on too much work to keep up a montly schedule, the writer was not concerned. "We can always just get a bunch of boys in a room, give them some JLA action figures, and write down what they're saying. With decompression, we could get a whole year's worth of stories out of that," said Johns before picking up a Wonder Woman and Superman action figure and pressing them against each other and making smooching noises. "Oh Wonder woman, you so sexy, I wanna kiss you face, mmmm mmm mmmmm," he said. We backed away slowly.

Thanks to Outhouse staff writer ElijahSnowFan for alerting us to this news by posting an article on the forums, instead of on the front page. :P

Head over to MTV Geek to read a more extensive and non-fictional interview with Johns about the book.
