NYCC 2012: DC COMICS - Justice League panel recap

Posted by k4tzm4n (36126 posts) - - Show Bio
  • Some talk about 'Throne of Atlantis.'  Atlantis will be lead by Ocean Master... who happens to be Arthur's brother.
  • Geoff Johns called the Atlanteans "almost an alien society."
  • The crossover event will "redefine" Aquaman and Cyborg's role on the Justice League.
  • The Trench returns!
  • Johns says 'Throne of Atlantis' has been in works since issue #1.
  • Cheetah will debut in JL #13 and she'll also play a role in 'Trinity War.'
  • Johns says "you'll see" why Catwoman is on the JLA.
  • Katana is one of Johns' favorites in the group.
  • "JLA will make Martian Manhunter the most dangerous character in the DC universe."  - Johns
  • Simon Baz will have a focus on Earth as he learns about being a Lantern.  A now "minor" GL will later train him.
  • Gorilla Grodd is back.  He thinks he should rightfully have the speed force and wants to take over Central City.
  • More of Wonder Woman's family will be introduced in #15 & #16.
  • WW will travel to New York.
  • Orion will appear and stick around for at least "most of the year" in WW.
  • Johns joked about Vibe being on the JLA, saying he loves to use (and hopefully redeem) characters many people have written off.
  • Johns dropped a Star Trek reference, saying Vibe feels like the red shirt on the team.
  • JLA will elaborate on Martian Manhunter's history with the JLA and in general.

"JLA will make Martian Manhunter the most dangerous character in the DC universe." Hell yeah!!!

And I loved the Trench! This is just amazing.

Looks like they'll finally be giving Cheetah her due... about time she got treated with some more respect

Yeah, I've lost interest in DC's Catwoman until they bring someone in to undo Nocenti's embarrassment. How that got past DC editorial is baffling.

Confusing images are confusing.

Glad to hear J'onn will play a bigger role in the DCnU.

Ya know, almost every Justice League cover has Wonder Woman swinging the lasso everywhere yet I don't think I'v actually seen her use it in the New 52

Justice League and Flash look to continue being good, JLA looks better and better.

As AVX messes up Marvel, DC rises to the top with the power of 10000 Batmen

#12 Posted by Stormbox (2001 posts) - - Show Bio

The upcoming stuff for wonder woman and aquaman looks incredible

The Wonder Woman and Flash covers look cool.

#15 Posted by SmashBrawler (5433 posts) - - Show Bio

The Trench comes back? Awesome! I always felt they were really underdeveloped characters.

#16 Posted by ectoborge (205 posts) - - Show Bio

WonderWoman: Not the beeeeeeeeeeeees!

#17 Posted by SandMan_ (4528 posts) - - Show Bio

Aquaman kicking ass.

@Ravager4: NOT THE BEES!!!

#22 Posted by Miss_Garrick (1757 posts) - - Show Bio

As long as Aquaman and Wonder Woman will still be hardcore awesome, I don't care about the rest of the team.

#23 Posted by Fudgie29 (70 posts) - - Show Bio

JLA looks like a must buy. Love MM. Interested to see catwoman's role. Also can't wait for snyder/jim lee man of steel! I love you DC

#24 Posted by JamDamage (1106 posts) - - Show Bio

I want to know where Stormwatch plays into all of this, if they do at all. There is nothing about news EVER regarding Stormwatch.

damn the JL are getting the sh*t beaten out of them

oooooo the Martian Manhunter news sounds interesting...

#28 Posted by sentryman555 (745 posts) - - Show Bio

I wonder how Gorilla Grodd thinks the speed force is rightfully his.

#29 Posted by SavageDragon (2248 posts) - - Show Bio

DC steppin it up. They say Bring it on Marvel NOW!

The crossover event will "redefine" Aquaman and Cyborg's role on the Justice League.

That's nice...would of course have helped if either of them had a role to begin with other than team bus and guy-who-stabs-things-at-a-crucial-moment.

But then again it doesnt really seem anyone has any specific role on the team as it is.

#31 Posted by Lvenger (17901 posts) - - Show Bio

At last Johns is doing something with Cyborg. And Orion in Wonder Woman? I'm sold.

#32 Posted by TDK_1997 (14446 posts) - - Show Bio

The Wonder Woman and Aquaman covers are awesome.

#33 Posted by sethysquare (3843 posts) - - Show Bio

cant wait for justice league family.

#34 Posted by tensor (3832 posts) - - Show Bio

looking forward for this

#35 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

Ohhhh Johns how you toy with us so, especially when telling us we'll "see why" Selina is on the JLA, which has confused me ever since the announcement of the series! And the other reveals are wonderful. Really makes me excited to be a DC fan right now.

#36 Posted by Bestostero (5616 posts) - - Show Bio

i really like Katana in the new 52, her design is really one of my favorites!

gonna be interesting if Geoff can do to Vibe what he did to Aquaman, that would be amazing.

In new52 continuity, it's the speed force that evolved the denizens of Gorilla City. Grodd feels like the Speed Force abandoned them when Flash was chosen as "The Runner"

'Johns joked about Vibe being on the JLA, saying he loves to use (and hopefully redeem) characters many people have written off.'

reminds me of the JLU cartoon when they had Apache Chief, the Wonder twins, Black Vulcan and Samurai appear as new characters, hopefully they wont try and bring back too many randoms without bringin backs some classics

coff coff (wally west) coff coff

Grr Damn it DC, I'm an Orion fan and you are putting him on WW? I don't read WW hell I have never been a fan of her she's ok not horrible but never been interested in her. But since her book has Orion in it I may have to read it. Damn you DC for that. And why is there no Stormwatch info? Considering they have the most powerful characters on it, yes Jenny Quantum is the most powerful meta human on DC currently thats not regarded to be a god or an entity or a cosmic being.

Trust me, you will not regret picking up WW. That title has been fantastic from issue #1. I was pretty much the same as you where, although I didn't dislike Wonder Woman, I just never had too muck interest in her and only knew her character from the JLA books, but New 52 Wonder Woman is honestly one of the best of the bunch. 
 
There's no info n Stormwatch because this panel is dedicated to the Justice League. None of those characters are JLers.
