Justice League the Birth of a New(?) DC Universe

June 1, 2011

So following DC’s Mega Event, Flashpoint we will be treated to the creation of a brand new DC universe. According to USA Today, and DC’s own blog, this August will see a reimagination of the Birth of the Justice League which will launch us into a new universe.

A reboot on this scale hasn’t been attempted since the Crisis on Infinite Earths, and I do not think it’s neccesary.

Of course the part of this I find hilarious is the statement that DC is, “revamping characters such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and others from its 76-year history for a more modern and diverse 21st century.”

It’s revamping for a more diverse 21st century but we’re going back to an all white, one woman, JLA from the multi-ethnic multi-woman JLA of more recent incarnations?

Does that make sense?

More on this story as it breaks.

A Screen Cap of the USA Today Article showing the new Justice League, with redesigned members Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Superman and Green Lantern... this is a new more diverse take on JLA they say so why is everyone white with a smuffette.

  1. Yeah not liking the all white, one woman JLA :/


    • My mistake… having seen the full cover Cyborg is a part of the team so there’s a token black guy. He wasn’t mentioned in the press release. If it’s supposed to be the origin, Superman and Batman wern’t there for the origin either.


      • So it’s /slightly/ better because we have Token Woman and Token POC. :/
