So, I'm been seeing allot of disappointment over what DC's New 52 has decided to either cancel or give a title to before others.

So, what New 52 title would you cancel and replace with your own, and who would you want as the artist and writer?

Rules are simple.

Multiple choices are allowed as long as you only replace one for every series you cancel.

You can also choose to bring a title back instead of making your own if you want.

My choice would be to cancel Dark Knight and replace with a Batman 666 title written by Grant Morrison with art by Jae Lee.

  • Replace Justice League of America's Vibe with Martian Manhunter.
  • Replace Batman and Robin with Batman Beyond.
  • Replace Batman: The Dark Knight with Black Bat & Spoiler (I just want Steph back, and I might as well throw Cass in there too. They were fun together).
  • Replace Batman/Superman with World's Finest.
  • Replace Superman/Wonder Woman with Sensation Comics.
  • Replace Stormwatch with Blue Beetle (I hate Stormwatch, and we might as well get Beetle back in the process of eliminating it).
  • Replace The Movement with Static Shock (same as my previous reasoning).
  • Replace The Green Team: Teen Trillionares with The Question.

I just replace series I hate or series that shouldn't exist with series about characters I like. Is that a bad thing?

@supernategames: It was a story Morrison did about an alternate universe where Damian Wayne grew up and took over as Batman. The issue he first introduced him was Batman #666. Hence the name.

Cancel Suicide Squad and replace it with Suicide Squad written by John Ostrander. :D (I do think MK will do a decent job with it though. Just a shame Glass made such a mess for everyone else to clean up, first Kot and now MK)

Or, replace it with a new series set in Stryker's Island. It would be a semi-mystery book focusing on the hunt for a killer within the prison's confines; featuring cameos from the superpowered villains, but focusing largely on new characters who have been deemed dangerous enough to be incarcerated there.

I love this question. I'm going to cancel Talon and replace it with Batman Sci-Fi written by Chip Kidd and Michael Cho. Why? Because I read their gorgeous story in Batman Black and White 1 this week. It was amazing and we deserve more.

Also, Batman Sci-Fi is a Batman series that takes place in the late 50's early 60's that focusing on the more other-worldly of Batman's adventures. It'll be wacky, good-hearted, fun.

#32 Edited by ArturoCalaKayVee (11389 posts) - - Show Bio

Oh this is going to be fun.

Cancel - Replace

  1. Talon - Red Robin
  2. Batman: The Dark Knight - Gotham Knights (book featuring the entire Bat-Family except Batman. This includes James Gordon, the GCPD, and Alfred playing active parts as well as the actual Supers)
  3. Katana - DCU Presents (this was a great book with a lot of good opportunity)
  4. Batwing - WILDC.A.T.S
  5. Green Team - Justice League International (I really liked this book a lot)
  6. The Movement - The Titans (the original TT team)
  7. Phantom Stranger - The Outsiders (I miss the crap outta this team)
  8. Pandora - SHAZAM!
  9. Batman & Robin - Blue & Gold (Booster Gold and Blue Beetle book. TED KORD)
  10. All-Star Western - Two-Face (After reading his villains month, I think he has so much potential as an Anti-Hero/Super Villian via flip of coin. Could make for some interesting stories.) OR Villains United (which would be sort of like DCUP but with Villains storys acting as "Anti-Heroes" in some capacity or battling eachother)
  11. StormWatch - The Authority
  12. Constantine - Hellblazer
  13. Batman/Superman - Worlds Finest (Still a B/S book. But I also want Huntress/PowerGirl to stay just with a different name)
  14. Superman/Wonderwoman - Gods Among Us (Still a SM/WW team book just different name and thought it sounded appropriate)
  15. JLA's Vibe - Azrael (Jean-Paul NOT Michael Lane)
  16. Catwoman - Secret Six
  17. Superman Unchained (I limited Batman to two books, So I'm doing the same w/ Supes. Just put Unchained team on Superman) - Sensational Comics (So Wonder Woman has two books)

Maybe I'll think of more and add to this. I also realize that I really like team books....

That's the best part, though. It doesn't matter how ridiculous the title seems because it'll probably never really happen anyway.

Just have fun with it. :)

@battle_forum_junkie: gotcha

Well then

replace Batwing with a book focusing of a team of heroes called "Milestone". It's founding members are Icon, Rocket, Static, and Xombi along with one DC Comic properties-- maybe Ray Palmer. Static and Rocket are adults in their early 20's and Icon would be in his mid 40's, with Palmer in his mid 30's

I'd buy it

Cancel and its Replacement

Katana - The Question (Seriously this guy needs his own title already)
Talon - Court of Owls (Far more interesting than Talon)
Constantine - Shade The Changing Man (I still weep over him...he was the only reason I ever picked up JLD)
Batwing - Frakenstein: Agent Of S.H.A.D.E (DC why?! Why cancel Frankenstein?!)
Larfleeze - Saint Walker (If the Blue Lantern Corps cant catch a break in the comics at least give them their own title...yeesh!)
The Movement - The Outsiders (It was a good book)
The Green Team - ....No...just....just no....srsly....no
Stormwatch - Apollo and Midnighter (They are worthy of their own title)
Harley Quinn - Kid Eternity (I miss him. he had a GREAT one-shot...now MAKE MORE!)
Batman Lil Gotham, Batman Arkham Unhinged, Batman Legends of The Dark Knight - Superman titles (Less Batman more Superman!)
