Are their any other DC characters who could be Stormwatchers?

With J'ohn playing more of a Anti Hero role these days and the team down to five, who could take up the job?

I could see revamped versions of Vril Dox or Adam Strange on the team.

I actually cant think of any, it's such a shame that we lost Manhunter

I can see Sister Superior, Manchester Back, Menagerie, and Coldcast joining Stormwatch.

I would like Blitzen and Donner, but i guess DC would think they have their wole LGBT cuota on the book, also Iota or Backlash.

Oh hell yes... If they could make a sensible plot reason for him to join, Stormwatch could benefit sooooo much from having that tie to the rest of the DC universe. I also think they need a person or two from JLI after it ends. Firestorm, Captain Atom, Animal Man, and Swamp Thing would all also fit in with the epic big picture/otherworldly/universal force theme that the team's power sets have. Having people represent a Lantern Corp, the Red, the Green, and the sheer interconnetedness of the cosmos (hence Captain Atom/Firestorm) would fit right in with what's represented by the team's current roster. Honestly, I want to see the book take off. Stormwatch needs to be respected within the DCnU. Like I wanna see the JL and the upcoming JLA actually a bit on edge and worried if not scared when Stormwatch shows up just because SW packs enough power to flatten both teams together..

@PrimeDirective: well with stormwatch and their current dealings with the red lanterns , rankorr would be placed on the team as a way to keep the peace between both groups atrocitus could say he would feel more comfortable/demands one of his own on something of stormwatch's scale when in actuality he would have rankorr serve as a double agent (my theory anyway)

ik they protect earth but i would like if they shifted to what the authority did which was right wrongs by stopping catastrophes on earth (meteor showers,invasions) supervillains, corrupt governments,and alternate realities as well. im not sure if swamp thing can be away from earth (they do have a HQ in space) hawksmoor gets weakened when not in a city , wouldn't swamp thing be the same? pretty sure the same for animal man as he is powerless once he is off earth(i could be wrong)

a reality warper could work , so yeah firestorm or capt atom , ill lean more towards the latter. he was boring in his own book but will fit great with stormwatch

Manchester Black and Midnighter on the same team? The Multiverse would explode from awesomeness. Billions would perish for centuries afterwards just due to how great such a team up would be.

That said. If Simon Dark isn't busy , he could join up.

@SoA: Swamp Thing and Animal Man would be fine one other planets/realms. Unless things have changed in the New 52, the precedent has been established that if they were to go to Mars for example, Swamp Thing would tap into the Green's morphogenetic field on Mars and his body would then take on the characteristics of Martian plantlife. I'm pretty sure a similar instance has happened before for Swamp Thing specifically. Now for Animal Man, he's the avatar of the Red, which is the source of the morphogenetic field that both Beast Boy amd Vixen tap into for their powers. Both have been shown to tap into the morphogenetic sphere of whatever planet or world they happen to be on in that moment, be it Vixen taking on the traits of Martain animals on Mars or Beast Boy shifting into Trigonic creatures when in Trigon's realm. I'd be hard-pressed to believe Animal Mam would be any different.

Adam Strange would be cool on the team but he would need tweaking so he isn't just a dude with guns and a jetpack.

I would also like to see Zatara, Zatanna's father on stormwatch as a older more powerful Zatanna. They could say he faked his own death to be on the team because the team works in secret.

This is a great idea. What they can also do is reveal that Stormwatch has a reserve member, a powerful masked sorcerer to help them in the situations where they are dealing with a major mystical, cosimc level threat. Then later on when the Justice League with Zantanna added to their ranks inevitably faces off against Stormwatch, It could be in this battle that we discover the identity of the masked sorcerer is none other than Zatara.

@Rumble Man: Thanks. I don't think the actual individual character's themselves are expies, but rather The Elite and Justice League Elite are both expies of The Authority and Stormwatch. What do you think though?

@kadeem: naw man

JLA came first then stormwatch, then authority then elite

Was hoping Captain Atom would join Stormwatch.

Maybe Firestorm?

I only wanty more DC characters in Stormwatch, I don't care who joins. Even Ambush Bug is fine by me.

I'd also like to see some WS characters in JLA.

Captain Atom would be a great addition to the team. I think it would be cool if some yet-to-debut Wildstorm characters were introduced into this team as well. Battalion and Backlash would be nice additions.

This makes sense. Captain Atom did spend time with the Stormwatch characters before when he was transported to the Wildstorm Universe for a little while.

I prefer Stormwatch to be similar to Watchmen and should have the powerful super heroes like Jenny Quantum, Captain Atom, Firestorm, Takion, Apollo, Majestic, Magog, Steel, Icon, Hardware, guy gardner, Rankorr, Blue Beetle and smart people like Midnighter and Michael Holt.

Wonder Woman and Zealot on Stormwatch and they can probably cut off many heads.

From the Bat family, maybe can use Azrael, Talon. From superman family, maybe can use Eradicator, Steel, Supergirl. From Wonder family, maybe Hippolyta, Artemis. Maybe can also add Helena Bertinelli and non kryptonian main earth Power Girl.
