thoughts?

The first one already exists

The others sound interesting, although i dont think dc would give them more than a miniseries

But where does the shazam/cyborg partnership come from? Never heard of that

I'd read Cap Marvel and Cyborg, two characters I like conceptually but not read much about them. In Justice League Cyborg is the secretary / bus service and don't really see him fleshed out.

Here:

Johns also mentioned that Shazam and Cyborg will be friends when he joins the team. “They love throwing cars in the air and blowing them up,” said the writer. He added that they can’t high five, because the first time they do, Shazam short circuits Cyborg’s arm.

And here:

Johns also said Cyborg and Shazam will become good friends and may have a little fun with their powers, perhaps irresponsibly. “I want to create a friendship like Hal and Barry had and Ted and Booster had.”

I dunno about Shazam and Cyborg. Shazam being a magical kid and Cyborg being a technological 20 something. I like the others though.

Sounds pretty cool

...Or they could do a The Brave and The Bold book and experiment with an unlimited amount of parterships.

@StrangeMan: There is something to be said about quality (depth/continuity) over quantity (an unlimited number of revolving partnerships).

Damn when I open this topic I was gonna put that, but you beat me to it. I also have a feeling there would be a lot of sex in that book.

I know, but with many of these relationships we don't really know how good or interesting they could be, besides Superman/Batman and Fire/Ice the others don't seem to be able to hold a book. Not to say that they couldn't, but for now there really isn't anything that could prove otherwise. Besides, the same argument could be said the other way around, would we really want Hal and Barry teaming up over and over again when there are plenty of other more interesting reletionships out there?

#12 Posted by Black_Claw (2872 posts) - - Show Bio

I think the Cyborg and Shazam idea could have a lot of potential. Superman and Batman already have a series and honestly, anybody could've seen that coming. I'd love to see a friendship book of Aquaman and Wonder Woman though.

Fair deuce. There could be more interesting partnerships out there, but I think that DC would have a better chance consistently selling the same popular characters than a team up version of DC Comics Presents or National Comics, which feature characters people don't want to take a risk on. I think the revolving team thing could be interesting (critically), but after DC Comics Presents and National Comics, I don't think it would sell. If you have the same two characters over and over, then you at least have the same fan base over and over. Just my thoughts.

This.

@Avenging-X-Bolt: They aren't friends yet, but a team-up book could have some interesting angles. If we can't have Hal and Ollie, Hawkman and Green Arrow could bring back the dichotimous, O'Neil odd couple days of liberal Ollie and whatever the hell Hawkman.

@OutlawRenegade: yeah. I'd definitely read Batman/Superman, Fire/Ice and Shazam/Cyborg.

Those books would be awesome.

Fire &O Ice really need some redemption after JLI.

And the Shazam & Cyborg relationship should be good. Cyborg needs someone to hang with nowadays. He doesn't have Beast Boy or even Nightwing to pal around with. And Billy's never had a really close super-powered pal. So really can't wait for those two to meet.

I agree with you about Fire/Ice and Cyborg/Shazam.

Fire/Ice need to be redeemed. With World's Finest probably getting canceled in the next wave, this would be a perfect time to bring them back together (maybe with Vixen even added to the mix). Their book could be a funny, meta, sexy, empowering female book--emphasizing the funny. Jimmy Palmiotti would be the ideal writer. He's done amazing stuff with Power Girl and the Daughters of the Dragon. I could see this starting as a back-up feature that develops into its own title.

Shazam and Cyborg's friendship has been compared to Ted and Booster's. I could see Cyborg being the nerdy Ted and Shazam being the immature Booster. That has me psyched because DC really does need a fun and funny bromance again. I'd love to see them prank the Flash or Green Lantern. And since they come from such different worlds, you can set their stories in pretty much any environment imaginable. They could be real equals, since they both have important powers in common like flight, strength, teleportation, etc. Billy's danger sense could lead to good times. Vic could help Billy find his biological parents. And the two of them could possibly outmatch Superman/Batman in battle. Possibly.

  • Superman and Shazam
  • Batman and Aquaman

But what I'd love to see is a book with Batman/Zatanna, I'd also buy a book with Batman and Etrigan in it.

@Avenging-X-Bolt: They've had a couple of crossovers in the new DCnU and they're both JLA members. I'd like to see it, not sure if they're bosom buddies or BFFS.

ahhhh, i only ask because they despised each other pre-flashpoint. anywy it sounds like Johns will be hooking Ollie up with Simon Baz

A revival of the original Hard Traveling Heroes, Green Lantern and Green Arrow. Together, they fight modern social injustices, like reality tv shows and Facebook privacy concerns.

Blue Bettle (Jaime Reyes) and Booster Gold series...

As far as JLA goes, it would be cool to see Catwoman and Katana have adventures on the side. Sort of like Birds of Prey.

#34 Posted by JohnnyGat (1561 posts) - - Show Bio

Black Lighting and Blue Devil - I liked there moment at DCU: Presents, it was average but liked it nonetheless

Red Hood and Red Robin - I liked their interactions during the new 52

#36 Edited by ArturoCalaKayVee (10913 posts) - - Show Bio

I really enjoyed Black Lightning and Blue Devil during DCU Presents, so if they eventually had their own book, I'd buy it.

Superman and Batman are already getting their book, so I'll check that out.

I would buy a Cyborg & Shazam book, I think the fact that one's magic and the other is science makes it a perfect combination.

I'd also love to see a Green Lantern & Flash book. But I named three popular choices.

Booster Gold and Blue Beetle (Ted) would be a dream book..but that was already said too...

A team book I'd really be into would be like a revolving BatFamily book, kind of like in Gotham Knights, where it focuses on members of the Batfamily OTHER than Batman.

I'd like to see a Trinity book again, to be honest...

Maybe a team up book with Martian Manhunter? Since his solo's never really make it...

I kind of deviated from the OP but I love team up books, lol.

#37 Edited by FlashKnight (448 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd love a book that teams Martian Manhunter up with about anyone :D

#38 Posted by MartianManhunterIsBetterThanCyborg (2213 posts) - - Show Bio

Wonder Woman and Batwoman. Loved their team-up in Batwoman's series. And they're a pretty cool take on the "World's Finest" concept.

Also, I'd like to see Green Arrow and Black Canary team up in the New 52 at some point >.>

#45 Posted by Black_Claw (2872 posts) - - Show Bio

Wonder Woman and Aquaman. Would be interesting since both of them are royalty and heavily tied to mythology.

#46 Edited by Avenging-X-Bolt (12412 posts) - - Show Bio
Green Lantern: Emerald Knights

I'd like to see a buddy cop series starring these two with a good writer who can successfully portray the best aspects of their various portrayals.im talking a hybrid of Gerard Jones political charged thinker/Dwayne McDuffie's stern military for John Stewart as well as Mark Waid's Fearless charmer/Geoff John's wisecracking flirt for Hal

I always thought it was weird how Geoff Johns established these two as best friends during his GL run but never actually did anything with them, you'd think with them being the two most popular Lantern's as well as being primary examples of both of their respective branches of the US Military, that DC could market them well and tell good stories with them.
