What DC character deserves a solo series in the New 52 and who should write it. You can use any character even DC characters that already had series (examples: Captain Atom,Blue Bettle). So who do you think?

Aztek The Ultimate Man, written by Grant Morrison.

  • A Shazam series written by Geoff Johns and with art by Gary Frank
  • A Martian Manhunter series written by Matt Kindt and with art by Doug Mankhe
  • A Cyborg series written by Justin Jordan and with art by Dexter Soy

3 series with solid B lister characters that with the right creative teams behind them can produce some excellent stories.

We need a Question solo series, but I'm not sure about the creative team.

A static ongoing written soley by John Rozum (they should've done this from the start instead of letting that tool known as Scott McDaniel take control)

A Cyborg ongoing written by Jimmy Palimotti

A Shazam Ongoing written by Geoff Johns (even though he's writting way too many books as of late)

#6 Posted by JulieDC (957 posts) - - Show Bio

Red Robin and anyone but Lobdell as the writer. Also would love a Shazam solo too, with Johns writing it.

Superman, Batman, some type of Lantern and Jim Corrigan all deserve a solo.

#9 Edited by Guardiandevil83 (5599 posts) - - Show Bio

A Catman series written By Geoff Johns or Gail Simone.

A Question or Richard Dragon series written by Scott Snyder or take Matt Fraction from Marvel. Both these guys "get" street level characters. Read Batman, Immortal Iron Fist or Hawkeye for proof.

Kindt didn't really sale me on the Manhunter back-ups he did but, he could probably write better if had an opportunity to make a full script. I like your choices.

It's funny what solo series there are when Shazam and MM get no love. They would be brilliant.

#12 Edited by EmperorJosh (94 posts) - - Show Bio

Seriously, Black Lightning and Aztek would be amazing! But I wouldn't want their costumes butchered like they did with some of the characters. I don't know about writers(anyone but Johns though) but Greg Capullos next book whenever he's done with Batman could be Aztek and Reis could do a sick Black Lightning.

Martian Manhunter and Shazam. It's just pathetic they gave Harley Quinn a series before those 2 classic heroes. She is a terrible character.

I know Justin Jordan mentioned he wanted to write a Lobo series in a previous interview. I would totally be down for that. Edgar Salazar would be cool for art. After the unfortunate cancellation of Deathstroke, it would be pretty cool to see them working together again. I really liked their work together. It would be awesome if Keith Giffen was involved, too. (Creator of Lobo) I've been really loving his recent stuff.

Speaking of Keith Giffen and his many amazing creations, I think an Ambush Bug ongoing is in order, or maybe backups in Larfleeze? (I think they'd go really well together)

Lastly, a Saint Walker ongoing. Creative team? Geoff Johns? *grins optimistically*

@lvenger: A Shazam series is much needed, but if i may, i'd change the creative team. Geoff Johns is too busy trying to build up Aquaman now, and giving him as much 'lore' as possible. As for Gary Frank, i don't know why he's not a regular artist for anything. But back on point, i'd change the creative team to Brian Buccelato and Francis Manapul, i say this since i'm a big fan of the Flash, and i notice how the scripts are in tuned to Billy's character... there are some serious moments, but it's light hearted and flashy (O-O), and also Manapul's art has been amazing. The Flash will lose a great creative team, but think of how Shazam would be, it'd be a nice read. Also, Manapul does alot of random Shazam art, JUST LOOK AT THIS =D!!

That's not a half bad idea actually. The creative team on Flash would be well suited to take on Shazam. Nice idea!

Cyborg, Martian Manhunter, Shazam, Booster Gold, Tim Drake-Use Morrison or Snyder for at least one or two cause they never seem to work on any non A-list character.
