The DC Universe streaming service launched it’s Titans weekly show. Titans follows Robin (Dick Grayson), Raven (Rachel Roth), Starfire, Beast Boy. They bond together to form the new young superhero team, The Titans.
So far the few episodes we’ve watched are good. It is a darker/grittier world in the series. The characters are still looking to find themselves and forge their superhero identities.
It has been promised we will see Starfire’s classic outfit before season’s end.

You are officially invited to the DC Comics wedding of the century, uniting Batman (Bruce Wayne) and Catwoman (Selina Kyle).
Normally weddings are expected to be joyful occasions representing happy couples, but we can all agree that Batman and Catwoman are not your everyday couple.
In Issue #50 of Batman’s ongoing series, we will witness the grand wedding bringing two heroes together; that is…if any unwanted guests do not interrupt it! You can catch up on all the preparations by reading Batman #48 – #49, where Batman chooses his best man and all the one-shot stories with the Bat family in Batman: Prelude to the Wedding.
So make sure to visit your local comic book store on July 4th to bear witness to the grand wedding.
If you watched Challenge of the Superfriends cartoon growing up, you know their biggest enemy was the Legion of Doom. The Legion of Doom was the villains answer to the group of Superheroes at the Hall of Justice.
The Legion even had a cool headquarters (Hall of Doom) that was shaped like Dart Vader’s helmet. I spent many Saturday mornings in front of the TV watching the Superfriends thwart the Legions attempts at villianry.
The good folks at DC Comics are gonna give us the Legion of Doom once again. Even better, they are putting Scott Snyder in charge of writing the story and Jim Cheung will be giving us the artwork. The first arc of the Justice League relaunch for DC Rebirth will feature the Legion of Doom as the main antagonists.
The Legion will consist of Lex Luthor, the Joker, Sinestro, Cheetah, Black Manta, and Gorilla Grodd. That line-up should give you chills.
Scott Snyder has said the Joker will play a very important role in the story and not be just comedic relief. Looking back at Snyder’s previous work on Batman and the Dark Nights Metal series, I am giddy with anticipation. I can’t wait to see Justice League back in prominence again. The writing of Snyder along with this new Legion of Doom promises some very epic stories.
Who is your favorite villain team in the comics? Do you think Snyder will return Justice League to the top of the sales charts? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Brian Michael Bendis has been synonymous with Marvel for a couple of decades. He is one of the main architects of the Ultimate Universe in Marvel. His work on Daredevil and Avengers are still regarded as some of the best for those titles.
Then in 2017 it was announced he would be exclusive to DC Comics. DC Comics offered Bendis any character in their stables to mold into his own. Most people believed he would take the helm on Batman, but to everyone’s surprise he chose Superman.
This all coincides with the 80th anniversary of Clark Kent/Superman. DC launched big into the Bendis era with the milestone issue Action Comics #1000. It is an over-sized issue with multiple stories. The Bendis story introduces a new villain character and a possible new explanation for the demise of Krypton. It also had multiple variant covers representing the different decades Superman has been published.
The stories in Action Comics #1000 are all good in their own right. Many of them tug at your heart-strings while others explore different aspects of Superman’s character. Overall it is a great book and an awesome introduction the the Bendis era of Superman.
I’ve always had a tough time warming up to Superman. I prefer my characters to display some kind of flaw or downfall. It is easier for me to relate to those type of characters. I am hoping Bendis is able to write Superman to have some kind of connection to normal every day people. He has worked magic before. I hope he has a little bit left for Superman.
The Justice Society of America has been mysteriously absent in DC Comics Rebirth initiative. To be more correct, we haven’t seen a JSA title even though the characters have been spotted in DC Comics promotional material. Several of the JSA members have even made appearances in other Rebirth comics.
The Justice Society of America is a superhero team that was popular in DC Comics Golden Age. Before Rebirth the Justice Society was part of the main DC Earth as a team of seasoned heroes who mentored younger legacy characters.
Back in 2016 Geoff Johns promised the JSA would return. He said the return of the JSA needed “room to breathe” so it would not get lost among immediate announcements.
We have been given hints pointing toward JSA becoming a part of the DC Rebirth Universe. We have seen Jay Garrick trying to re-enter the DCU only to be pulled back out due to nobody remembering him (it seems their memories tether them to the DCU). Johnny Thunder is constantly trying to get his Genie and use him to bring the JSA back.
We have seen other characters like Mr. Terrific, Phantom Girl, Hawkman, Saturn Girl make appearances in other Rebirth comics. Some of the JSA/Legion of Superhero characters like Dr. Mid-Nite, Alan Scott Green Lantern, Doctor Fate, and Hourman have appeared in promotional material.
Any fan of these Golden Age superheroes will be ecstatic to see their return to the main DCU. To make it even better it looks like these characters will be playing a very important part in the explanation behind what is going on with DC Comics Rebirth initiative.
