DC Reboot – The Legion, Young Justice and Liefeld?
I hope you weren't liking Hawk and Dove because Liefeld is about to make them look like the 90's! The announcements keep pouring in from DC and sure enough Scott Lobdell is working on Teen Titans, eh, Young Justice. Gotta brand them properly for the TV show right? I'd have to say that Teen Titans is the only good announcement from this batch. Seeing Paul Levitz take on the Legion for the millionth time just isn't interesting. Are there going to be a 100 members? Are they going to talk about their time with Superman? Probably since there's two books. I don't know what DC is think giving Liefeld a shot at a monthly book and considering how popular Dove is from Brightest Day, you'd think they'd want to keep her looking... modern. It's probably one of the worst reboot images so far since they actually look older than they did in Brightest Day and Birds of Prey. More announcements later today I'm sure, in the meantime enjoy the covers and vague descriptions provided by DC.
Following the announcements of new first issues starring many DC's legendary characters, we are releasing news of first issues for several of DC's teenage heroes and young superteams.
