'Back in the old days of “Batman: The Animated Series,” several times I tried to do “Batman as a vampire” stories, and every time got shot down. The world was not ready for it. This was in pre-Buffy days. Vampires were not allowed on children’s television back then. I remembered that and thought "Batman as a vampire would be kind of cool."' - Bruce Timm

'So I was thinking, a different version of the Justice League, what do you do that’s different? And around that same time, DC Comics was doing the New 52 reboot and when I first heard about that I thought, wow, that’s really intriguing, I wonder what they’re going to do with the characters. That made me start to think about the silver age versions of The Flash and Green Lantern, and how when they brought them back they kept the name and the gimmick of the golden age versions of those characters and threw everything else out. They had new costumes, their powers worked differently, they had new alter egos, and I thought that was the most successful reboots in the history of comics and I thought wouldn’t it be exciting if they did that with the entire line of DC Comics. I knew they weren’t going to do that because you can’t, that’s just too huge a financial gamble. It made me start thinking though, if I was going to “reimagine Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman,” the three biggest, most important characters in the DC Universe, what would they be?' - Bruce Timm

"It becomes hard to do something fresh and new – even with action sequences; every story you tell, Batman’s gotta do something, Superman’s gotta do something, and you go, well what hasn’t he done already? We’ve done hundreds of hours of content with these characters! So with this Gods and Monsters version of it, it does open up all kinds of new possibilities, and not just for Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, but for all these other DC characters. It’s kicking over the table, coming up with different ideas for the characters." - Bruce Timm

"They're J.M. DeMatteis and my Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. Our Blue Beetle never got shot in the head. He never split from Booster Gold. The last memories these two clowns have is that Max was mad at them. Then they woke up in a refrigerator on Takron-Galtos. It's our Justice League." - Keith Giffen

We've wondered about Jean Grey's telepathic ethics. So here's another example of her using her telepathy in a way that is ethically questionable.

Spectacular Spider-Man #197, 198 and the first few pages of #199 are a team-up of Spider-Man and the original X-Men. Some time ago, Professor Aaron Power wanted Charles Xavier to restore his son, Matthew. Things did not go well.

'We're exploring a universe that hasn't been explored yet — the "Bwa-Ha-Ha" universe or whatever. And DC was amenable. So we said, let's do it!' - Keith Giffen

It's one year later for the 31st century Justice League...

Newsarama: Keith, your book is continuing into June, along with a lot more books with a bit more humor in them. With the success of the Harley Quinn book, and the extra attention Justice League 3000 has been getting, I think people are figuring out that there's room in the comic book industry for books that don't take things too seriously.

Keith Giffen: I've been saying that for years! I've been out there all alone saying it's OK to laugh and have a little bit of fun. With Justice League 3000, we have an obvious sense of humor.

From Justice League International (80s version) #19

When we last left our heroes...

...Manga Khan had sent Lobo to kill the JLI space team, who were pursuing him to free the captured Mister Miracle, who the Cluster is taking to Apokolips. Barda, not wanting to kill their foe, teleported Lobo out of their hair. Unfortunately, where he landed was the JLI headquarters in New York. Even more unfortunately, he hit Guy Gardner on the head on his way in.

The Earth JLI doesn't know this mysterious visitor, just that he looks mean. They realize their problems are even worse when Guy has announced he's reverted to his old, obnoxious, personality.

'We had so much fun with Beetle and Booster -- and it was actually a toss up, by the way, as to who was in the refrigerator. It was either going to be Beetle and Booster or Fire and Ice. I couldn't get Fire and Ice out of my head, so since I pretty much hijacked the book and said, "Hey, it's my universe! Go away!" Why not?' - Keith Giffen

A lot of us preferred the old pre-The Killing Joke Joker of the 70s and most of the 80s. Unlike the version since, there was so much variety in the types of stories you could do with him. You could do dark. You could do comedy. You could do dark comedy. It was whatever the writers felt like doing, that day.

Here's a story that was published the same day as The Killing Joke. The Joker has been contracted to kill the JLI. As this is the BWAHAHA era of the Justice League, you can guess how well that's going to go.




A cold, hard look into the terror and violence of insanity. Or something.

'Comics are supposed to be fun. Like, "Oh my God I can't believe they did that!" I don't care about your convoluted continuity. I don't care how serious you want us to take your superheroes. I don't care about Hollywood. I'm not trying to make my books Hollywood friendly or easy to turn into a movie. I want it to be difficult, because we're going to go out and we're going to have fun. Right now, Justice League 3000 is the book I'm having the most fun doing, bar none. You're welcome to join us if you'd like to.' - Keith Giffen

'That was, for a while, the way comics were being run. If the editor didn't like the direction a book was going, it didn't matter how well it sold -- they'd get in there and start pinching and tweaking and fucking it up. But lately -- and I know this for a fact, I've talked to people who actually make these decisions -- it's loosening up. It's really loosening up. They're actually saying, "You know what? You're always saying, 'If I was left alone, I would do this and this and this. I'd make this book popular.' Fine. The shackles are off. Go."'

'The minute I realized, "Oh my God, they mean it!" I said, "Why don't we bring Beetle and Booster back?" And they said, "Okay." I thought, "Oh, wow, they didn't take a swing at me. I don't feel like a wac-a-mole." I went, "Well, I'm also going to say it's not the New 52 universe -- it's going to be a whole different universe." They said, "Okay."' - Keith Giffen
