Stormwatch 12 Solicits

#1 Posted by mathematicscore (167 posts) - - Show Bio

So, the New 52 issue 12 solicits are out, and there's some spoilery reveals in the solicit copy;

J'onn is apparently leaving Stormwatch "Forever!" What is it about J'onn that gets him constantly removed from teams? With the notable exceptions of the Detroit league and the JLI, he's been phased out of the Silver Age League, the Bronze Age almost altogether, Morrison's JLA (although he got phased back in pretty quickly there, and kept on by Kelly too) was in the Outsiders for an entire issue, and now will be out of Stormwatch with in a year.

Writer shake ups are a likely culprit, and maybe his inherent "other"-ness means a low percentage of creators have a good grasp of his character, but... just silly. If he doesn't get a solo title with somebody cool, I'm gonna spit.

how disappointing. They really can't seem to give his character any love whatsoever.

I want him back in JLA!

I'm hoping for a solo title at best; a heel turn would be the worst. The most probable thing I've heard is him being added into a restructured JLI (that title is ending with issue 12 apparently.) J'onn has really been in a near constant state of flux since Infinite Crisis. With out a Giffen/Dematteis, Morrison, Ostrander, or even Priest to champion him, he seems to be overlooked.

He will more than likely end up on one of the Justice League teams where he belongs in the first place

Martian Manhunter was the only thing good about that book. Please cancel it now.

So has anyone read Stormwatch 12? How does he leave the team?

@Lvenger: There wasn't really much an explanation at to why he left. He just mind wiped everyone from ever knowing him.

Well, he is apparently moving to JLI-like Justice League of America, in a starring role from the looks of things. I think it's even under Geoff "I can even make Aquaman sell" Johns's pen.
