    I'm waiting for it, hope it could definitely increase my poor pulling list.
    I've never read anything written by Russel.

    Damn I wish this was an ongoing. Russell surely deserves it.

    I thought it was fun too, Zan's descriptions of the thunderstorm activities was too funny!

    I have my fingers crossed. Bendis has said he wants to do more with Zan & Jayna, so if it's successful, perhaps something more permanent will happen.

    Check out this YouTube video.

    This guys is ripping into the preview of Wonder Twins, saying is a propaganda piece promoting globalism, socialism, and he comments on "subliminal messages" as well as the 'night that throbs with pleasure' and whether or not all of this is appropriate for a comic that will be read by children.

    By the way, the Imaginext (Fisher-Price) DC Super Friends Series 6 blind-packs that came out this year have Zan and Jayna figures.



    If you want just those two figures, and not the others, here are the codes that are embossed on the back of the packages so you get just the figures you want (there's one figure per a package):
    * FXW92 = Zan (with water bucket)
    * FXW93 = Jayna (with eagle)

    Lol. I enjoyed his outrage and reaction-ism a little too much.

    We've gone round and round again and again about the arguments and solution he poses, so I'm not going to rehash it again, but I'm surprised he didn't side with the Nazi robot when he reviews the Freedom Fighters issue first, the title where he read the WT preview.

    LOL @ Siding with the Nazi robot. I was confused by his "righteous anger". I mean....really?

    Very cool! I hadn't seen these, I may have to get them, if I can find them. LOL I wonder why the outfits are different? The belts are slightly different, and Zan's boots are flat topped, while Jayna's are not.

    WONDER TWINS Re-Activate To Take On Real-World Teenager Problems

    By Vaneta Rogers, Newsarama Contributor - February 7, 2019 03:30pm ET


    Previously known as the wacky alien kids from the Super Friends TV show, the Wonder Twins are being introduced into DC's primary comic book universe on a much more realistic level, as high-schoolers who deal with common teen issues.

    Introduced in the late 1970s as cartoon characters on Hanna-Barbera’s The All-New Super Friends Hour, Zan and Jayna are aliens who have the power to transform into water (Zan) and any real or mythical animal (Jayna). But their powers would only work after they touched each other and said, “Wonder Twin powers, activate!”

    Although they’ve appeared in comic books before, this new Wonder Twins limited series introduces them as interns at the Hall of Justice who are also dealing with the trials of attending high school on Earth.

    Mark Russell, best known by DC readers for satiric titles like Flintstones and Prez, is hoping his approach to the two characters is relatable, as they deal with things like dating and trying to be popular.

    There will also be the sort of satirical humor for which Russell is known, as the writer said he believes the Wonder Twins serve as an “allegory for the post-millennial generation” and the very serious problems that “we’re expecting them to deal with.”

    In fact, he described the personalities of the Wonder Twins as “one really well-adjusted person split in half, in two tragic parts.”

    But the title will also feature Gleek, the twins’ pet monkey, who shows up in the second issue and is featured by #3. And although Russell indicated he’s only planned so far for a six-issue run on the title, he’s hoping it will find enough success to continue past his first story arc.

    Newsarama talked to the writer to find out more about Wonder Twins, what artist Stephen Byrne brings to the title, and what readers can expect with the title launches later this month.
