    Default “Heroes in Crisis” Limited Series by Tom King & Clay Mann to Start in September

    It’s a 7 part limited series, with the first issue coming out on September 26th.

    From the EW article:
    “Due in September, Heroes in Crisis will mark the introduction of Sanctuary, a crisis center established by the Trinity that uses Kryptonian technology, Amazonian mysticism, and Bruce Wayne’s money to help “superheroes who spend their lives fighting villainy and protecting others.” Created by King, a former counterterrorism operations officer with the CIA, Sanctuary and the limited series reflect his ongoing interest in exploring the consequences of violence on those involved. This theme has been present in almost everything he has written, including Batman (see the I Am trilogy, Kite Man, or how Batman’s relationship with Catwoman asks whether happiness is possible for the Dark Knight), Omega Men, and Mister Miracle (which begins with its titular hero attempting suicide).”

    I hate that Booster is front and center after the way King butchered his character when he used him in Batman. King got Booster so wrong on every level, and just did it to set up this story.

    Normally I'd like this concept, but if that cover is representative of who the main focuses of the book are going to be, it's going to be primarily about white A-listers and characters previously without trauma who King changed and/or butchered.

    Hard pass.

    Another crisis.

    I guess BleedingCool was right
    The J-man

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    This feels like a spiritual sequel to Identity Crisis and that could be...bad. Otherwise it focuses on an idea I was always curious about. Heroes having professional support after traumatic events.

    Let's be fair if the familiar characters we all know was not at the forefront this series might not sell.

    I have a question, I think this is Roy Harper but he look a little different that his current costume. If it's not him who could it be ?

    Feelings,nothing more than feelings.

    Why do writers feel that they need to give every hero tragedy,and not able to deal with it?

    Geoff did it to Barry,abnett is doing it to half the Titans,and now king will make every DC superhero a mess,is this what is cool nowadays to do to our heroes

    I love Tom King’s work but this is kind of disappointing. With all the Source Wall and multiversal upheaval I was hoping for something bigger in scale. This seems more like Identity Crisis.

    Even Harley shows a serious face here... Bad signal..

    There are many characters with white capes..

    WHAT IS THAT THING IN SUPERMAN HANDS? A mask and??

    Who is this man behind Black Canary? He is between Captain Atom and Vixen..


    behind barda I think I see Alfred Penyworth and someone who seems another Robin(Tim).
