So DC have a new line of books coming out, under the banner (Not an Imprint, a banner, apparently it's a different thing according to Dan Didio)  Dark matter, and details were released at the Diamond Retail Summit

New Challengers

Written by Scott Snyder with art by Andy Kubert

Characters live on borrowed time, running from death toward the greatest mysteries, wonders and terrors of the universe! It’s a new cast, new mission, but in conversation with the history and greatness of the original Challengers of the Unknown. The story starts with Challengers Mountain returning after having been missing for years, and only gets wilder from there…


Debuting in September

Written by Dan DiDio and Justin Jordan with art by Kenneth Rocafort

Forever changed by the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, a teenager struggles to live through high school as he comes in contact with Dark Matter and gains the power to teleport through the Dark Dimension. But each leap brings the new hero one step closer to succumbing to the allure of his new power and its dark origins.


Debuting in October

Written by Robert Venditti with art by Tony S. Daniel

Ethan Avery only wanted to serve his country, but promises of becoming the ultimate weapon leave the new recruit living a nightmare. Cursed with the ability to unleash an unstoppable monster for one hour at a time, Ethan only wants to live out his life in peace. But if he can tame the monster inside, it might just be able to do more good for the country than Ethan ever expected.

(There will apparently be links to the previous Damage character)

The Silencer

Debuting in September

Written by Dan Abnett with art by John Romita Jr.

Honor Guest was the world’s deadliest assassin, until she traded it all for a chance at a “normal” life in the suburbs, free from the constant death and destruction. But as her former life comes back to haunt her, Honor must strip away her suburban persona and protect her family as THE SILENCER.

The Immortal Men

Written by James Tynion IV with art by Jim Lee

Born at the dawn of time, five siblings find that with eternal life comes eternal war. As the forces of destruction march into the modern world, they operate from the shadows, recruiting the elite against the foes who seek to bring about Armageddon. They are humankind’s hope sprung eternal….they are the IMMORTAL MEN.

My problems with the new challengers is this:

It's been done before. Chaykin, Loeb have both tried to reboot The Challengers.
Then I saw it was Snyder and my desire to read this faded away.

I want to see writers like Roger Stern, Karl Kesel and Doug Moench back on titles. Not the same bunch of people that already is putting their mark on things.

Admittedly I'd like to see some old familiar names get back in the game, too. Gerry Conway seems to be having some success at Marvel with his Spider Family comic so I think that's proof that potentially the older writers still have something to contribute. And those guys are around the same age as Mark Waid, right?
