DC Announces JUSTICE LEAGUE 3000

DC is going back to the future with their biggest characters.

What would the Justice League be like if it was the year 3000? That's exactly what a brand new series by JM DeMatteis, Keith Giffen and Kevin Maguire is aiming to reveal! The trio will jump one millennium into the future with DC's most iconic characters and they've all undergone some pretty sweet redesigns by artist Howard Porter. DC gave Comic Book Resources a good look at them, so check 'em out below!

What do you think, Viners?

Souce: CBR

What...the...f*ck...

Btw, you got your Wally West back.

Also fix this Superman's retarded hair.

ehh.... no...

I like the fact that Keith Giffen is starting to right a lot of books again but this looks like total bs.

That green lantern........Yes please and I don't even like DC. I like everyone except superman and batmans concept drawings

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

creatively redundant. For a medium that is born from imagination DC and Marvel sure show a lack of it in everything they do.

Again: /facepalm.

I sorta like the Flash and Green Lantern new look

Sweet other than WW

Take the Green Lantern design, take away the neon, patch the suit up, and there you have Ragman. Get the hint!

Edited by Sleepbutnodream15

Geez, everyone sounds so damn bitter. The designs look awesome! Give it a chance.

Edited by Teerack

Green Lantern is the only non stupid looking one. Also I see red hair on Flash... if they think they can just stick him in 3000 and not have to worry about him in the main universe I'm going to be very sad.

Posted by RDClip

umm, no. no. no. NO!

Those character designs are awful. And did no one learn anything from Marvel 2099?

There are so many better places to put the Justice Leauge vis-a-vis alternate universes, new characters on other planets, etc. But, this is basically one of the most unoriginal ideas in comics; "lets take the same characters and put them IN THE FUTURE!!!"

Edited by guttridgeb

Superman's "S" looks more like an eight, I don't like that...

Otherwise, the rest of the designs and the concept are interesting.

Edited by KryptonSabbath

I think Flash looks pretty gnarly but this seems something that would fit into a Mortal Kombat theme.

Supes - Awful

Batman - Badass

WW - No comment...

Flash - Right...

Green Lantern - I could live with that

That's just me being honest.

wow people lighten up a bit...it hasn't even been released yet and you're already hating on it? wow

I think it sounds awesome...I've always loved future storylines

Posted by Sidious

wait.

WTF happened to the Legion? that time frame is their turf.

Posted by monsterduc

Kevin Maguire! I'm in!

Posted by DXmagma

Supes looks fine costume wise but he's got that weird hair, he looks like Dante the demon killer. Batman's armor just looks like it's trying to be dark and brutal while invoking Batman Beyond, but the red in the beyond outfit was much more subdued. This just looks like a weird alternate evil batman armor. Which it might be.

Otherwise I like everyone else. Wonder Woman looks great, Flash could use some more yellow but still good, and I just love that Green lantern.

Posted by Captain13

Speculation says that the red-headed Flash is Wally West and that the Wonder Woman is Donna Troy.

I hope the Green Lantern is John Stewart, Rex Stewart, or another descendant of the Stewart line.

Also, I like that the team is only 5 strong. IMO, team books can only spotlight six characters well at most. And I think 5-6 characters is the ideal number for a team book that only has 20 pages of story every month. My favorite issue of Johns' Justice League is issue 9, which only features 6 characters.

Posted by The_Greatest_Green_Lantern

My guess would be:

Mon-El, Dick (sent to the future), Donna (as a 31st century native), Wally (as a 31st century native), and John Stewart.

This could be an unofficial return of the Titans.

Edited by Captain13

I'm very excited for this book based on the creative team, roster (if that's a Stewart), and gimmick, but I hope this is not just some excuse to create a future crossover like JLA was created for.

Posted by fables87

They look kind of bad-ass to me.

Posted by lilben42

Another announcement!? Wow DC is really going at it.

Posted by SandMan_

Its pretty obvious that this Flash is Wally.

Edited by AWeekInGeekdom

Love the concept and it would be great for Terry to be in this as well, hopefully they'll write it as "Justice League 3K" :P

Supes: Meh....

Batman: Looks original yet awesome

Wonder Woman: My favorite so far!

Flash: The bandana makes me think of Hex with speed force influence.

GL: looks very Marvel-ish to me but I love the design.

Bitter. Is it bitter to point out the obvious gimmicky nature of a book that's set in the distant future with versions of characters in the future? Now to be fair I DO enjoy series like this, well Spider-Man 2099 anyway, but only if there's something there other than "Look! It's (Insert name here) in the future!"

The ONLY design I like is Green Lantern. It's got a mysterious, almost mystical, look to it which I think fits greatly since originally Green Lantern was magic based. Anyway, the hood and tattered cape are awesome. Really gives the impression of some kind of ghost which also gives a creepy feel. Not that Green Lantern is supposed to be creepy, but given how varied the concept of a Green Lantern can be it works here.

Could be cool, gotta wait for some preview art and more details, but as of now, could be cool.

Posted by Wardemon32

Wally looks sexy. JustSayin...

Edited by TheManInTheShoe

Superman=Lar Gand?

Batman=Terry McGinnis?

Btw, why not calling it Justice League Beyond or something?

Posted by Captain13

The should call it, "I can't believe it's NOT the Justice League."

IIRC, Bart Allen is from 1000 years in the future, which would allow him to still have been Wally's partner at some point in time.

Edited by QuantumVertex

All of them suck but Green Lantern. That Lantern outfit can be potentially dope af

I agree wholeheartedly, on both comment's. And other then Superman's hair and the look of the logo I think the redesigns look pretty badass.

Posted by Cavemold

I like the designs. GL meets Spector is awesome

Posted by Iron_Turtle

Superman's hair looks ridiculous.

Batman's chin piece make him look like Midnighter.

Wonder Woman. Why Heels?

Love Flash.

Love Green Lantern.

Edited by Dernman

This just waters down their properties.

Even though I believe this is a mistake they should have that as Donna and Wally. Also this was a good time to add a female GL without doing something dumb like adding another GL in present time.

Edited by Daniel_Newton

They're all okay, except Superman's hair. That hair looks silly.

So... is this supposed to be Clark, Diana, Bruce, etc. just set in the year 3000? Or is it actually the future of the New 52 universe and these characters are descendants/replacements? I need details!

Also, when I think about future-DC, I like to think about the Batman of the Future/Batman Beyond time period. That feels futuristic enough.

Going one thousand years into the future seems like way too much. Surely technology would have advanced so much that super heroes just wouldn't function the same, but looking at those images seems to indicate the Justice League wouldn't be all that different.

...I'm probably putting way too much thought into this. Like I said, I need details!

Posted by NathanXplosion

GL kind of reminds me of Raziel from Soul Reaver.

Posted by saoakden

Green Lantern looks cool. Sounds interesting. I'll keep an eye on this.

Edited by VaizD

My biggest problem here is that Wonder Woman is drawn really poorly. I don't mean the costume, I mean certain elements of the artist's style itself are making her look downright bizarre. She reminds me of an old stripper past her prime or something to that effect. Hopefully that's just an issue with the art in that concept image being sort of sub-par.

Edited by Saren

I like the designs for the most part, although Flash seems to be taking a leaf out of Grifter's book and GL looks like a glowing Ragman.

I'm guessing that Superman is Kal Kent...his costume and hair are pretty similar

Edited by ShadowX

And they are all still white( unless the GL is john stewart) *flips table*

And still only one woman... and i bet there all gonna be straight. Because in a thousand years things still wouldnt have changed to show more diveristy.

I love wonder womans and Green lanterns look though

I know!!! THIS IS EPIC!!

Posted by Jokergeist

Why do they have to make 'em look so sophisticated? Keep it simple -_-

OH WAIT it's because it's in the FUTURE. Everything looks ridiculously sophisticated in the future, right?

Sincerely,

Posted by aquahawk

I like it.

Posted by HempKnight757

Another Batman with red. Real original. These announcements are making me wanna stop reading comics. You need to improve you already bad lineup of books. The whole year 3000 thing is so lame..

Posted by GothamRed

3000? We sure these guys aren't time travelers from the mid-90s. Cause that's what the designs tell me.
