DC comics: third wave of 'The New 52'

In case you didn't already know, last month dc announced the "second wave" of the new 52. This means six of their comics that were low on sales will now be replaced by six new ones starting in May. Exiting stuff, right? Now this is my question to you guys: If you could choose a new comic (or comics) you could make as a new ongoing series in dc, what would it be? I would love to see an AZRAEL #1. I know many would complain we already have enough bat-books as it is, but I disagree with this because although Azrael is classified as a bat related character, he isn't really related to Batman at all. My point is it doesn't make sense for Azrael to be ruled off because he is another Batman character. Not such a great fan of SHAZAM myself but I know plenty of people who are. A spoiler comic might be cool, not that important though. One comic I seriously miss is 'The Outsiders'. I would love to read that so much. So what would you like to read?????

There are so many comics I want to see come back or be created, I don't even know where to start.

Same as ArturoCalaKayVee, there are too many that I'd to see...though perhaps not all at the same time, atleast for the sake of my wallet. Assuming it's like the second wave, consisting of 6 new titles, then...

  • Cyborg
  • Shazam
  • Doom Patrol
  • Doc Magnus & The Metal Men
  • Something Tanga from Weird Worlds/My Greatest Adventure can be a recurring character in
  • Blood Syndicate, I really do think they should implement the Dakotaverse into DCnU somehow, it seems cool. I was hoping that'd happen in Static Shock, but...

The Question. I would take Renee or Vic.

WildC.A.T.S. (With Jim Lee) 
Doom Patrol (With Grant Morrison) 
Zatanna (With Paul Dini) 
S.H.A.Z.A.M.  (With whoever.) 
Something involving David Finch(DC needs to put him on something other than Batman)  
Gen13 or The Authority. 

Edited by The_Tree

WildCATS, Doom Patrol(Keith Giffen), Shazam, Red Robin(Fabian Nicieza), Xombi(John Rozum), and Booster Gold(Keith Giffen or Dan Jurgens).

Shazam would be nice...

A Riddler mini (I realize it probably won't happen, but it would be cool...I mean I hear the Penguin mini went well...)

I find myself agreeing with you a lot lately O___o Is the world coming to an end?

I'd also like to see a book with Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown, art by Marcus To and written by Gail Simone.

@Adnan: there was a small mention of the dakotaverse in static , and the articles of the writer for it (forgot name) wanted to implement good ideas but was shot down ,kinda messed that up. i would like to see icon though, wasn't a big blood syndicate fan . hardware could be cool , but definitely wanna see icon in his own series . even if its a mini

Lobo, Wildcats, Authority!

Most of my choices have been mentioned, so for now, I'll go with a better Grifter book, Secret Six, and..

This. Simon is way too underrated, and he deserves a good book.

Hawk and Dove needs to come back with a creative team that doesn't chew sphincter. Creeper should get his own series ,maybe a Bronze Tiger one as well. Oh and Outsiders as well

Posted by Adnan

@SoA: Yeah, John Rozum wanted to keep Static in Dakota. He wrote a number of titles under Milestone as well, I think.

I haven't read any Icon before but I'm aware of him. The only issue I can see with him is that they may decide to heavily rework his origin, since it seems so similar to Superman's. I went with Blood Syndicate because it seems pretty heavily rooted in Dakota, so if they ever decide to bring Static back, he could make appearances here...Hardware could work as well though.

@Avenging-X-Bolt: Agreed on Hawk & Dove, I really think they should've just changed the creative team like they did with Green Arrow instead of outright cancellation - I still feel they can take advantage of the interest in her gained from her appearances in Brightest Day.

An ongoing series with The Ray would be pretty cool. The mini series has been good so far, if a bit rushed. A proper series might help with its pacing.

Hardware would definitely be cool and Icon needs a mini bad, he hasn't been relevant since World's Collide, and it's not right that a character that powerful has been downplayed this much

I want an Uncle Sam and The freedom Fighters ongoing since we've already established that there is multiverse.

Posted by BiteMe-Fanboy

Lobo. dammit. it better be Lobo.

Posted by TurianAgent

Definitely Booster Gold and Shazam. I also agree with Poet about a Riddler mini, that would be fantastic with the right people behind it.

GIVE ME JPV. The real Azrael. YES pleassse.

Also, multiverse books. I'd read an ongoing about the Cap Marvel family on earth-C or a Charlton earth book. Maybe a Vic Sage book set on a charlton earth with a Brave and the Bold type theme?

Also, what about a hard boiled detective book featuring Slam Bradley? Won't work...because those types of things never seem too...but with the right creative team we could probably get at least a graphic novel or 2's worth of 1930-40's noir before cancellation.

I dont know why Wildstrom was canceled & merged with DC, but I'd rather have a book set on a seperate earth using the purchased characters like Fawcet, Quality, & Charlton as their own Freedom League of watchmen, just not in a weird setting like WW2 continues to the modern day. Very little DC character involvment. Its Captain Adam or Marvel, Blue Beetle, Max Murcury, Question, then only a DC character like Guy or John when you need a character that has no counterpart. Maybe that would also be were you'd use alternate versions of characters, like Artimis as Wonder woman. Just, no too weird & out there like Wildstorm tried to do with their post apocoliptic storyline. More like DC's version of Ultimate, just using as many different chacters as possible.
