    Default After His Batman Ends, What Comic Should Tom King Have His Hands On Next?

    I'm including the recently announced Batman and Catwoman Maxi Series as part of his Batman run, because it seems to conclude key elements of King's main narrative.

    Legion of Superheroes. I know people might be mad at him after his Batman run and HiC, but he’s a good writer. His Vision and Mr. Miracle speak to that. I think the Legion is probably something that plays more to his strengths as a writer than Batman does.

    Iím guessing heíll get a turn on Flash, Superman, or JL at some point. We know heís already got another Vision/MM style 12 issue miniseries coming up with Gerads.

    Is he good at teams though? There are a lot of great writers who struggle with team books, and LoSH is one of the largest and most difficult to start with. I donít think King has ever done a team book before.

    I could see him do really well with a Brave and The Bold miniseries.

    Tom King was born to write a continuation of the 5 Years Later Continuity of the Legion of Superheroes. Whatever you think of King's writing, and I'll admit he's written some $#@! in his time, but every single trope he revels in makes him the perfect candidate for that book. However, I don't really want him to write an ongoing, he hasn't quite proven himself to be that capable a writer beyond the 12 issue maxi series*.

    *No. Grayson does not count, as it was cowritten with Tim Seeley.

    Something COMPLETELY out of regular DCU continuity preferably.

    Indeed.

    Let him plumb the depths of the DC lore to find that strange and overlooked character which he can use to create a maxi-series the like of Vision and Mister Miracle.

    But no more ongoing for him please - only big name characters have them now and none would be a fit for King, he would just tear it down, and none has the cushion that Batman has.

    He seems to like Hal, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he find himself on Green Lantern. After Morrison is done of course.

    I'd like him to reconstruct a few characters he's left deconstructed. So Dick Grayson and Wally West. Titans or solos. No preference.
    It's the Dynamic Duo! Batman and Robin!... and Red Robin and Red Hood and Nightwing and Batwoman and Batgirl and Orphan and Spoiler and Bluebird and Lark and Gotham Girl and Talon and Batwing and Huntress and Azreal and Flamebird and Batcow?

    Since when could just anybody do what we trained to do? It makes it all dumb instead of special. Like it doesn't matter anymore.

    Oh, Titans would be funny.
