With the New Year just around the corner, I decided to take a quick moment to speculate on the future(s) of a couple characters who I believe are posed for major changes in 2010.
2010 is going to change the Worlds of quite a few characters in the DCU, and perhaps no one more so then Dick Grayson. The current Batman. But with Bruce Wayne set to make his return, what will the road hold for Dick? It took some deep soul searching for the former Nightwing to even take up the mantle in the first place, but now that he has, and kept Gotham from completely devouring itself, will he simply step aside?
My final pick I admit is somewhat bias. Gambit, has recently returned to the black skinned white haired look he made famous as the Horsemen, Death. Its been over a year since Gambit returned in X-Men #200, apparently cleansed of the process that altered his appearance as well as his abilities. However as fans flipped through the pages of X-Men: Legacy #229, it did not take long to see that all is not well with the silver tongued Cajun. With his transformation never fully explained, and his sudden reversal back to the Black Side, will Gambit once again become a villain in 2010? And if so, will it be the final straw? Would the X-Men ever be able to welcome him back if he were to turn to the Dark Side yet again?
Who are some characters you expect to have big stories, or impacts in 2010? Feel free to speculate on the uncertain futures of those characters you feel will make a major splash in 2010.
