    Wonder Woman will probably be Wilson's pet character Maggie. I could see the explanation for Diana leaving the role is that she eventually hooks up with Atlantiedes and they spirit off to Olympus together or something. Bruce fakes his death and maybe marries Selina. Superman retires in wake of his duties as Earth President.

    By the way this is all stupid and ridiculous and will fail horribly.

    I dont know what to think about this, specially because of the idea of Jonathan Kent replacing Superman but Damian wont replace Batman, not necesarily that he deserves or needs to be Batman now but its just that something feels off about it.

    and I also think that there is a major problem with the whole idea of replacing Batman AGAIN.
    it just never sticks and its hard to see this one sticking as well.

    I do however will put a very controversial statement
    Wonder Woman's replacement is way overdue

    compared to the other 2, it just feels like WW has no legacy of her own
    mainly because of the constant rebooting that she has had in the last couple of years, from the All-New WW to Azzarello and then Rucka's Year one, I would even throw WW Earth One on there too.
    there is just too many versions and reinventions of Diana. and on top of that there is no real version of Donna Troy, just how many "Who is Donna Troy?" storylines do we need to have without answering the question.

    so I applaud the idea of a new WW who isnt Diana.

    Heh, I wouldn't mind Jason stepping in the cowl, for good reasons and in good ways. It could be actually pretty cool having him for a while, I think.

    But he really needs the right reasons and the right mindset to get to that point, a good story that would justify him dismissing his own ideals and ways. And rigjt now, he is not there.

    I don't know about other leaguers, but maybe a female Flash could be cool. Or even Wally again, if he acchieves redepntion.

    Wonder Woman Diana could be a constant in the League in the new continuity. But, to be honest, I don't know who could replace her either.

    I would like other Super that weren't Jon, to be honest. But, on the other hand, Jason is family to Damian, and Supes Jon would be big brothery to him, which sort of reminss me that Young Dick's relationship with Clark was strong.

    I don't know about the remaining members.

    With all the crap Marvel got for "doing" the same thing-why do that here? Especially if POC are used.

    Why put yourself through that? This would be better if you just did a series of Elseworld books for say a year.

    Because what happens if the replacement does a Jane Foster? You know have better sales than the original?

    What if Luke as Batman has higher sales? DC's track record (Wally West & Cassandra Cain) says it does not end well. However Azrael had a 100 issue run after being Batman.

    Crazy Idea we wouldn’t see coming: Wally West (the Original) as the Flash
    Wally West deserved better than Heroes in Crisis

    Pull List:

    DC: JUSTICE LEAGUE, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, JUSTICE LEAGUE ODYSSEY, ACTION COMICS, LEVIATHAN, LAST KNIGHT ON EARTH

    MARVEL: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, VENOM, WEB OF VENOM, ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, DAREDEVIL, HOUSE OF X, POWERS OF X, FANTASTIC FOUR

    BOOM STUDIOS: BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, ANGEL

    Okay, if we're doing replacements we might as well go stupid with it!

    Superman's replacement is......Superman! From the New52! T-shirt and jeans, Golden Age power levels! A multiverse refugee from the dark multiverse, Morrison's masterpiece finds his way to the prime earth to take over for his "cousin" while Rebirth-Reborn-current Clark is absorbed by his duties as earth president. How does Nuperman handle threats like Mongul, Darkseid, and Brainiac when he can only leap tall buildings? And will the world respect him when he doesn't have the raw power they expect from Superman? When even Superboy is more powerful, is a Superman still a Superman?

    Batman's replacement is.......whoever. I don't care, as long as its not Dick (his story shouldn't end in the Bat cowl! He's his own man). We'll just take Terry from Batman Beyond and port him over.

    We'll have Nubia take over for Diana.

    Wally West's daughter from Kingdom Come should take over as Flash. I forget her name.

    Aquaman can be replaced by Jason Mamoa.

    Green Lantern's newest recruit can be Lois Lane.

    This is fine if they want to introduce it as something that runs parallel with what's already familiar, but if it outright REPLACES what's familiar, we're looking down the barrel of something that might make the New 52 outrage seem like a minor quibble by comparison.

    Its not that I dont want Jon to make new friends but geez did damian even get to introduce him to nightwing
    Wait he's former marine now? What happened to the MMA? or was that always been his origin?

    I wonder which members of the various families will still be around?

    I'm for doing temp replacements and let's be honest for Supes, Bats, and Wondy it's temps but doing all at once would be dumb.

    The last few years, and last few major runs, of many of those main books, Superman & Batman in particular, but also plenty of others ... have all done the Replacement storyline. A bunch. I'll still read a good book and try stuff out but it'd be ridiculous not to point out that "A Replacement" is like ... the ONLY story that's been told lately with most of these characters, where the title character is MIA and some newcomer is wearing the costume for some reason.

    So off the top of my head Batman has been Dick & Gordon recently, as well as alt-future versions of Tim & Damian for interludes. Of course he was also historically Azrael, and Dick again. Superman has been Mon-El recently, going by Valor, while Supes was in New Krypton. Superman has also been Lex Luthor lately. Naturally he was Val-Zod but that was in another Universe. He was also Two Different Supermen simultaneously, in addition to Depowered Superman. Aquaman was dead more recently, has come back and remained pretty consistent, actually - he mostly just vacillates between being a scruffy bearded pirate and a clean cut guy. Wonder Woman has definitely been Donna Troy in recent history. These are 'mostly' important chapters in well-received, good runs on comics. These are all also short******d. Flash has been Wally and Barry, Just Barry, Just Wally, Just Bart, and so forth, recently. And Jay. Who exists sometimes. But not all the time, but for whom ALL Flashes are Replacements. Kyle Rayner was the only primary GL for an entire decade. Green Lantern was Baz & Cruz for a hot minute there. It was decent.

    More to the point I guess ... I'm mostly okay with the Replacement storyline occurring in one or both the Superman books and Batman books and specifically just ... the characters who are being Superman and Batman. I'd generally like most of the rest of the supporting casts to stay the same or be pretty unaffected. We did Batman Reborn and New Krypton simultaneously and it was very cool to see Dick-Batman team up with Kryptonian-Military-Superman and so forth. You'll naturally always do the "The New Superman teams with the New Batman" angle. We had Jim Gordon Robo-Batman team up with Depowered Superman (and super-spy Grayson). It's an evergreen trope.

    Anyway I'm also okay with good stories that tell stories about inspired people taking up the mantle of a hero, I'm cool with new angles to look at classic story settings and tropes in and to get some fresh creative blood into these things. I'm cool with diversity if it feels natural, powerful and relevant, and not like bland corporate kneejerk reaction to woke internet articles. So I'm hotly anticipating this news and some of the line-ups of books.

    Then there's the part where The Batman comes out in July 2021 so whatever bold new direction they take is only going to last two years until they really want to cash in by having books that feature Bruce Wayne as Batman. But I think we all at least probably tend to suspect that'll be the case. Two years can be a cool comic run with great art, great moments and a memorable "sticks with you" storyline.

    Why promote Atlantiades when Donna is around?

    I think the real gauging of this is whether it's an out-of-continuity stories set in the future or actual relaunches of all the main titles replacing everybody.

    I don't see the latter succeeding at all.

    'Cuz DC doesn't really care about Donna and won't let other Wonder Woman writers use her...
