Zauriel Makes His New 52 Debut

The Winged Warrior is making his way back to the DCU.

Zauriel was a tough character. The former angelic warrior from Heaven came to Earth and even became a member of the Justice League of America and Shadowpact. Created by Grant Morrison and Mark Millar, many have been wondering what his fate or place in the New 52 would be. Now we have an answer.

DC has just revealed a character sketch by Mikel Janin.

Zauriel will be appearing in PHANTOM STRANGER. It turns out they've been connected for centuries for some reason. Phantom Stranger has recently journeyed to Hell in order to save the souls of his wife and kids. In issue #10, his quest takes him to Heaven where he'll meet up with Zauriel. We'll have to wait to see how that goes.

To be honest, I rather see the return of Cassandra Cain than Zauriel.

O_O So DC and Marvel are pulling out the warrior angels lol

Edited by Comicman1000

Wow, I was waiting for him to return, wonder if he'll eventually join Justice League Dark.

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

YES!!! Zauriel was one of my favorite characters back in JLA when he was on the main roster. He's kind of faded into obscurity but I hope he's like his old Morrison self!

He looks perfect!

He looks pretty awesome to me.

OK, I gotta admit... that design is actually pretty sweet.

Edited by Shallbecomeabattoo

Yeah! Great redesign! Hope they utilize him well and that he gets to be in the Justice League again.

"sigh" I love Morrisons JLA soooooooo much. Really hope we get a big 7 JL book thats as awesome as it was sometime in the future.

I've never liked Zauriel

Posted by Mucklefluga

For a guy that has wings like that he looks so bad-ass! I'm guessing it's the hood, hoods make everyone bad-ass (Shazam), it's probably the hood.

Really like zuarel

badass

I love Zauriel! Always felt he needed an ongoing... so good to see him in Phantom Stranger. Hopefully, he becomes a supporting character and its a fitting place for him considering the new origin for the Stranger.

Angela in marvel and Zauriel in the new 52, i think i missed a memo or somthing saying that angels are now THE thing of this season.

looks like that loser azrael

Posted by Mr. Messy Face

Zauriel looks legit. I love the angel symbols. He could totally make an awesome appearance if they ever did a crossover between Supernatural and DC.

Heaven Yessssssssssssssss

@mrpandopool: The Supernatural fever is starting to effect DC and Marvel it seems

Posted by fables87

I like his new look.

Posted by KnightRise

He looks great!

Posted by Teerack

He was a throw away character.

Posted by JamDamage

I always loved this character. It seems like a lot of people didn't really like him, and I don't why. He was interesting as hell and a bad ass on top of it. I loved how Morrison and Millar both treated his personality, and now he looks even cooler then he did before. This look is great.

Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt

Yay!!!!!!!!! im glad to see him back. he looks great, ill miss the whole eagle thing though.

Even if that were true, its my opinion that the "throw away characters," or second-string characters, as I call them, are really what build a universe. Their presence really adds dimension to the universe. It lets you know that there are more characters in this world than just the big guns. Anyway, I always like Zauriel and I'm glad to see that he's back.

He's better than hawkman

Edited by DocLuthorVonDoom

Hmm, interesting. I have the first 4 issues of Phantom Stranger; I've always loved the character, and since we're not getting a Spectre series I figured this would be the closest New 52 equivalent to Ostander's legendary run on Spectre for the last reboot; but I stopped because it didn't seem to be going anywhere. But if Zauriel is coming back it might be worth checking out, always been a fan...well, more of a fan of Morrison's run on JLA then the character itself, but I suppose the character has always reminded me of that glorious era in comics.

Not the same.

Looks awesome!

hoodies are taking over the dcu! beware the hoodies! they should so make a hoodie squad with pandora, shazam and zauriel!

oh a serious (or more serious) note never hated or cared for zauriel. i think he's a cool character in design, powerset and concept but he just didnt do it for me. saint walker is a far more inspiring and compassionate spiritual character. the christian angle is major negative for me and i've always was more interested in ancient gods than angels. but since i read stranger guess i'll see him soon

Posted by Thor_Ul

Nice design. I liked to see him again.

Posted by DocLuthorVonDoom

looks like that loser azrael

I hope you're talking about that chump Michael Lane, because Jean-Paul Valley was the shit.

What are you talking about? That's a classic!

Hooray!

Posted by AmazingWebHead

Robin, Kraven, Captain Marvel, and now Zauriel. What is it with everyone getting hoods now?

Donna will come back one day. not so sure about Helena though.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Wow now that's an example of a character that looks actually GOOD for New 52's rebooted world. Now how about we get some more pre-Flashpoint characters in the ranks now? I'm anxious.

I think he was reffering to the fact that he literally is (well, was) a throw away character, Morrison wanted to use Hawkman in his JLA run but editors didn't let him being that the character was so convoluted (and I think this was back when the whole "Hawk Avatar" thing recently happened, so... yeah...), so he created Zauriel.

But how the character was created is meaningless to his/her value, I mean, Ralph Dibny is also a throw away character, given his creator created him without knowing that DC owned the rights to Plastic Man, but he's still an awesome character, same thing goes to Zauriel.

Posted by cloudzackvincent

so glad he is back and looking awesome at that

Posted by TakeLuutzen

This design looks like the Redeemer.. Redeemer looks more awesome though

Posted by TDK_1997

He looks good but I was never interested in him.
