    Sounds uncomfortably like Extreme Justice, DC's ill-considered attempt to 90's up the JLA...

    Which makes sense actually, because apparently The New 52's whole schtick seems to be 'Let's pretend the 90's never happened'.

    The roster looks boring as heck. Manhunter's the only person I'm interested in.

    They already have Justice League Dark and Stormwatch, and Vibe's the only inspired choice.

    ...I've got nothing else to add. Wish I did.

    I do find it funny that DC is willing to use Vibe and put him to the forefront but characters like Wally/Donna/Stephanie/Cassie Cain/half of their other characters that they arent using are benched. And who knows how long the cast of JLI will be benched. I need some more Vixen.

    Is this a new book altogether or is this albatross line-up replacing the great one we have right now?

    The only upcoming line-up change that's been confirmed for Justice League is Hal leaving and Shazam joining.

    Well, that is boring. What purpose will he serve on a team with Superman?

    geoff johns' quality work over the past few years has plummeted and at best is mediocre. i never liked david finch as an artist. and the character line up sucks.

    not interested.

    Eh, there's been multiple hitters on the JL at once before.

    Supes and Shazam's personalities are different enough that I think it'll remain interesting.

    Yeah, especially since we have no idea what New52 Shazam will be like. I'm expecting a drastic personality difference like we got with Billy in kid form. I don't think he and Supes will come off as redundant at all.

    Shazam's easily one of my fav DC characters so I welcome him to the JL.

    I've never understood people who base team line ups entirely on power types. Like, that's not what makes stories interesting.

    Besides, from an in-universe standpoint, why wouldn't you want more strong people? Like, two strong guys is better than one strong guy.

    Maybe it's because we haven't gotten much of a chance to establish the New 52 version of the character, but you always have to worry about him coming off as a more wide-eyed Superman.

    I wonder what Martian Manhunter will be like away from Stormwatch? Really did find that combination bizarre.

    This sounds kind of black opsy. Or like DC's attempt to ape the movies' SHIELD-controlled version of the Avengers. Neither of those interest me. The Martian Manhunter's the only character on that roster I genuinely liked--note the past tense, since that was before the reboot turned him into a jerk. So yeah, another DC title to pass on for me.

    Why do you think MM's a jerk? He's pretty manipulative in Stormwatch but he says he's got his reasons. I agree that this book is a definite pass though.

    He seemed to fit right in with Stormwatch in the few issues I read, claiming he enjoyed the outlet for his warrior skills or something, as opposed to the League's leashing him according to heroic standards. Then it was revealed that he was a member of the League for like 2 seconds before ultimately fighting everyone else and leaving. Sounds like jerkdom to me.
