The Knigdom

If you'v been reading the new Batwing ongoing you'll know that the badguy has been killing off former members of  The Kingdom, basically an African version of the JLA. Would anybody like to see Batwing form a new version of The Kingdom? 
 
*Damn, I spelled the title wrong

No.
 
Stormwatch, JLI and JL it's too much.

Why is it? Stormwatch is covert and JLI and JLA only make two, thats not that many teams. The Kingdom where already a team now we would just get to read about them starting up again

Because three "team" books in a relaunched universe is already too much.  I'd like more character development before they add more. If they want to launch "African" heroes and have them team up later, that'd be cool, but only if it's done well (AKA opposite of the late 80's and 90's stuff)

I like the idea of the Kingdom a lot. I don't know if they would work as an active title, but I definitely like the idea that the spring of superheroes that happened five years ago was worldwide and not just American. It included groups like the Kingdom and and the Great Ten.

As far as the point that 3 team titles are too many, Teen Titans, Stormwatch, Justice League, Justice League Dark, Justice League International, Green Lantern Corps, Green Lantern: The New Guardians, Red Lanterns, Birds of Prey, Red Hood and The Outlaws, Demon Knights, Frankestien: Agent of S.H.A.D.E., Legion Lost, Legion of Super Heroes, Blackhawks, Suicide Squad, and maybe another that is technically a team title, hell, why not a 'The Kingdom' title, at least a mini.

its a mini series not an ongoing.

back on topic: i'm not guess i wouldn't mind, not that i'm excited about it

A mini would do if ever, but an ongoing series is too much.

First I would like to see the old Kingdom in the outfits first. As much as I would like to see a new Kingdom, I think it would have to wait till Batwing gets settled in and more heroes pop up. Maby after the first year and a half when we see more characters.

The Kingdom is not really a superhero team for Africa. They were the first in Africa, that's where their status comes from. But actually , from what i've read, it looks like they have only operated in Congo. So, The Kingdom is a superhero team from Congo. And i'll love to see an ongoing series about them. Maybe something like flashback stories before the events with The Massacre.
