""The New 52 was about showing the new world. Now we're just expanding on that world and furthering the story," says Bob Harras, DC Entertainment's editor in chief.

Make that plural "worlds." DC is bringing back its concept of parallel Earths in two of the books. Earth 2 features the return of the fan-favorite Justice Society, while Worlds' Finest stars two superheroines, Huntress and Power Girl.

In addition, G.I. Combat will offer a rotating roster of creative teams and rebooted tales of past war comics such as The Haunted Tank and The Unknown Soldier, while The Ravagers follows four teen superheroes on the run from an evil organization.

Morrison's Batman Incorporated pits the popular Caped Crusader and his army of global crime fighters against former flame Talia al Ghul, with their son Damian (who also is the current Batman sidekick, Robin) caught in the middle.

"It's like Kramer vs. Kramer, but they've got thermonuclear capability," Morrison says.

And instead of one superhero, Miéville will create several every month in Dial H, about a guy who finds an old dial that gives him different powers every time he uses it.

Nine of DC's "New 52" issues were among the 10 best-selling comics of 2011, according to Diamond Comics Distributors.

"Part of the sign of the New 52 growing up is that it can afford to stretch its wings a little bit and so some things that are a bit more left field," Miéville says. "There's room for a lot of different inflections in this vocabulary.""

So, JSA + James Robinson + Nicola Scott = Yay!

Batman Inc. should have Cass in (they SAID it should) so also yay.

Dial H for Hero could be interesting.

GI Combat might be interesting, though it seems to be more Weird War than more of a straight war comic.

And Ravagers... kind of sounds like Gail Simone's Gen13 run combined with Runaways, though it might be interesting. Though I'm getting Cass vibes from it, as I think I remember Gail saying she wanted to use them at some point.

For legality, here's a bit of one of the Dial H covers,



EDIT: Seems that the six new titles are meant to be replacing: BLACKHAWKS, HAWK AND DOVE, MEN OF WAR, MISTER TERRIFIC, O.M.A.C. and STATIC SHOCK.

No, please, don't cancel Hawk and Dove. Where will we get out Rob Liefeld art from now.

Ravagers is about teens on the run? Maybe Rose busts Caitlin out of jail, and picks up some of the other Gen 13ers along the way/

At this stage I don't care about the plot. I just don't want Simone writing Cass.

apparently knowing martial arts is a superpower to them
To be fair, the speed at which Cass can switch techniques has been analysed as one only found in metas according to the government guys Cass annoyed in her series.

I too am thinking Ravagers better include Rose in some fashion.

I know!!!! Is it too early to say the cat's out of the bag now??? This seems to pretty much put a seal on all speculation that the DCnU Huntress is indeed Helena Wayne.

Why not base the Power Girl/Huntress book on Earth 2, where they would be THE World's Finest team? If you're going to set up the parallel Earth, why waste the characters by placing them on an Earth where they aren't unique?

Wait...

"WORLDS’ FINEST – Writer: Paul Levitz. Artists: George Perez and Kevin Maguire. Stranded on our world from a parallel reality, Huntress and Power Girl struggle to find their way back to Earth 2. Perez and Maguire will be the artists on alternating story arcs."

Hah. I was spot on. Helena Bertinelli is indeed Helena Wayne. I could simply DIE OF HAPPY right now. :D

Wait I'm curious, why are we talking about Gail Simone in relation to Ravagers? It's being written by two dudes, right? What did I miss? Also, newsrama calls them "four metahuman teens" so now I'm extra curious cause neither Cass or Steph are metahumans. I wonder if it's supposed to be metahumans or if it's another newsrama misprint.

That said, I'm excited for Batman Inc. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HAVE CASS, please!

Dcwomenkickingass mentioned her name before the correction was made.

The name Ian Churchill rings a bell, but I don't remember the context. Was he the one who wrote terrible stuff on Supergirl? But I think I also remember him writing good things. Hmm.

Also: YES ROSE.

Definitely going to be picking up World's Finest and Dial H, which could be interesting. I'll probably try out Batman Inc. too

Ahh okay, I thought I had missed another interview or something somewhere! And I mean, if it's called Ravagers and is spinning out of Lobdell's Superboy/TT - where we've already seen her - it HAS to be a book where Rose is the lead, right? I don't see how it couldn't be. The name Ian Churchill doesn't ring any bells for me though, I'm a newbie /o\

I'm mildly worried that H-Dial Hero is going to be overshadowed in some circles by Ben-10.

Well it should, but. DC's track record with books with a teen female lead is less than stellar.

At least Lobdell isn't actually writing it, if that helps any??

Whereas I'm not particularly surprised by any of the books on the cancellations list, I'm really baffled as to why Voodoo isn't on it. =/

Thought it might be that. I guess boobs are the one thing that trumps poor sales. :P

Lol, also what I was thinking (though not as accurately as you, I didn't realise OMAC had a POC protagonist)... pisses me off that out of those books they kept the underselling and exploitative one though, rather than just giving an extra push to one of the others.

Presumably they succeed at some point and assume their rightful roles there.

Well, at least Frankenstein'll more than compensate for the gonzo science void OMAC and Mister Terrific'll be leaving.

(Now I'm hoping a bit of OMAC gets folded into Frankenstein down the road; it'd fit, and we might get to see a bit more of Max Lord in full Checkmate dress.)
