A lot of people wondered when the cancellation of Justice League International was announced if there might be another Justice League team in the works. While the International version is no more, DC Comics announced today at the DC Entertainment-All Access Sunday panel at Fan Expo Toronto that a new Justice League Of America title is in the works.
In 2013, DC Comics will launch the new ongoing comic book series, Justice League Of America. It will be written by Geoff Johns with artwork by David Finch. The team membership consists of Green Arrow, Katana, Martian Manhunter, Baz the new Green Lantern, Stargirl, Vibe, Hawkman and Catwoman. Steve Trevor will be leading the team.
Here’s what writer Geoff Johns had to say, “This is a very different kind of team book. On first glance, people might think the heroes of the Justice League Of America stand in the shadows of Superman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice League, but Green Arrow, Katana, Martian Manhunter, the new Green Lantern, Stargirl, Vibe, Hawkman and Catwoman thrive in the shadows. They’re underdogs who have everything to prove and something to lose. They’re a team of unlikely heroes who will help one another discover they’re as A-List as anybody — yes, even Vibe. Though getting there won’t be easy. Why they’re formed, why each member joins, what they’re after and who the society of villains is they’re trying to take apart will all be clear in the first issue when it hits early 2013. David and I are really focused on delving deep into what it’s like to not be a member of the big seven and why, sometimes, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.”
