As you all know, DC Comics has decided to revamp their entire line of comics. In September, we'll see 51 brand new titles (along with Justice League #1 premiering in August)! DC's goal is to have a jumping on point for both longtime fans and people new to comics. With these relaunches showcasing new designs for almost all of DC's characters (thanks Jim Lee and co.) and brand new line-ups for their iconic teams, there is definitely room to introduce new characters. Obviously, there are thousands of characters who haven't been in the spotlight for a very long long time! Here are some characters who could use a fresh new take in this DC Universe:
*Gypsy- The former member of Justice League Detroit who had a...strange looking getup before the reboot that could be refreshed to be more modern.
*Samurai, Apache Chief, El Dorado, Golden Pharaoh, and Cyclotron-Remember that old Superfriends cartoon and the Super Powers action figures that went along with it. These are some of the campiest characters ever imagined (that could be why their never appeared since, except for Samurai's tiny cameo in a Justice League comic not long ago). I still think that if DC updated their costumes to look more modern, they could all fit as members of the all new Justice League International.
*Chloe Sullivan-*ducks and hides* I know most people are opposed to Smallville's Chloe showing up in the comics, but by now you know that Babs Gordon is going back to being Batgirl. What does that mean? The Birds of Prey (Well, this universe's strange version of the birds) don't have an Oracle!!
*Snapper Carr-I just want to see Snapper around the Hall of Justice (or whatever the JL's HQ is in this universe) snappin those fingers!!
I could go on, and on, and on. You know that Geoff Johns loves to take campy villains (ie Black Hand) and turn them into a menacing super-criminal. I can definitley see him doing that with many of DC's villains. So, who do you think deserves a new design and updated origin as we enter into a new age of DC Comics!
