Co-Writer Keith Giffen teases on who or what the future Justice League may .. or may NOT .. be.

DC's solicit says:
The Flash is defeated. Green Lantern is in the clutches of Locus, a psychotic teenage girl with the powers of God. And Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman have been banished to a planet-wide penal colony! Will the regenerated (but not-quite-perfectly) Justice Leaguers survive to report back to the Wonder Twins?

“They’re not clones” claims Keith Giffen in a recent interview with Newsarama
. Despite references to “regeneration” and “templates” in the first two issues of this new title, Giffen claims things are not nearly as obvious as they may appear. And Giffen slyly points out that in his initial interviews for this title (before it even went on sale) he said that he would mislead readers for several issues to keep the mystery alive.
Giffen does provide some new teases:
- Although these new Justice Leaguers have partial memories of their 21st century lives there is a reason that they all act out-of-character to their earlier incarnations. There is a reason that they have no emotional connection to these original memories.
- This Flash, also called “Barry”, has red hair but he’s not related to Wally.
- Giffen promises that answers will start coming soon. Very soon.
- Something bad happened to the Earth between the 21st century and the 31st century that plays into events in this title.
- Despite the events of issue #2, we haven’t seen the last of Green Lantern.

About the Author - IvCNuB4
IvCNuB4 likes to maintain an air of mystery by never publicly revealing his true name unless you are one of the four lucky Outhouse posters he has PM'd it to. A life-long Chicago native, he was introduced to comics by his older brother's vast collection of Silver Age issues. When he is not at his day job as an IT geek or making the most of Chicago's three months of incredible summer, he can found spending way too much time with his very large, very loud Italian family. You will never find him on the likes of Facebook or Twitter as he scoffs at the necessity of most forms of social media.
