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.

So Damage is now the Hulk?

I wouldn't even say that he "is now" the Hulk. It's a new guy and not Grant Emerson so I honestly don't care either way.

The Silencer is the only one that attracts my interest. Everything else looks like they were drawn by Marc Silvestri.

"Honor Guest was the world’s deadliest assassin"

Why do I have the feeling Deathstroke might have some issues with that, at least have Priest make a joke or two about her name.

" World's deadliest assassin " is like being on the New York Times' bestseller list- demonstrate any quality in a noticeable amount, and you can claim it for a week or two.

Tbh the only concept that really grabs me out of all the above is Ghost Fist, and that's only because it's an interesting time & place he's drawn from...oh, and Silencer I like the sound of; even though she's not really doing anything new, I like the idea of suburban housewife being a secret assassin

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?

Looks interesting. All of the concepts are kind of dark, but I like that they aren't just flat out superhero stories. Sideways and The Silencer are the most interesting to me.

The Dan Abnett title sounds really fun. And I like Abnett for that kind of story.

The only one that I'm not interested in is the Immortal Men, but I think I'd be willing to give the rest at least an issue to give them a chance to hook me. Unless they're more than $2.99; then I might have to pass on a couple.

I see Sideways has a "cosplay style costume". He does look like he's cosplaying - specifically, as Spider-Man.

I love Snyder and Abnett, but I feel like this effort should have gone towards:

- Rebirth's existing heroes / status quo,
- Refining/bringing back those that haven't existed since the reboot
- The Hanna Barbera and the Looney Tunes crossover initiatives.

Hell, even Didio did a fairly entertaining run recently on Metal Men, during Legends of Tomorrow. I don't think DC needs to juggle all-new characters right now.

"Killspeed?" Really? Never mind that she's definedly "Afro-American" but has light eyes and light straight hair and a roman no--okay yes, Storm's awesome, but plz no more black female characters that are hot because of how not-black they are.

And my inner classicist is cringing at "Tempus Fuginaut." That is literally Latin for "Time Fliesailor." Would you name your dog "Time Fliesailor?" No. That would be cruel.

If only I could believe it would give us a moment as cool as Jason Blood calmly breaking a wine bottle and stabbing the alien parasite who'd crashed a party in the eye with it.
