    While you'd logically expect Red Arrow Emiko Queen or Arsenal Roy Harper to get the Green Arrow role, or for Connor Hawke to be returned to continuity, what if they instead brought back Mia Dearden, Speedy, in that role? She's the closest counterpart to the character taking over as Green Arrow in the TV show (same first name, anyway), so that's the best they can do for synergy.

    I think itíll be Jon Kent as Superman, Luke Fox as Batman. I can see Avery and Kaldur taking up the Flash and Aquaman mantles. Green Lantern is up in the air, in my opinion because itís not a mantle. Itís a rank. I donít know why people donít get that. Wonder Woman? I got nothing. Iím curious to see where it all goes instead of being angry and wishing for something to fail.

    Since they're reportedly unconventional choices:
    • Superman: Amazing Man
    • Wonder Woman: Big Barda
    • Batman: Midnighter
    • Aquaman: I can't think of any other male water-based hero other than Aqualad (and that fish guy just got killed, otherwise I'd have said him)
    • Green Lantern: Arisia
    • Flash: XS (back from Hypertime or whatever via the Speed Force)
    • Green Arrow: Ambush Bug

    Mary Marvel as Wonder Woman would be cool.

    For the people who think there's gonna be a timeskip before G5 takes over, why do you think that? And how many years do you think will go by or do you think that will be undisclosed?
    Basically I think after Snyder's crisis event we're going to get something between a 3 to 5 year time skip. My main reasoning is mainly based on hints from DC's past. They actually attempted something similar with Infinite Crisis in the form of "One Year Later." That also saw Clark, Diana, and Bruce step down for a while for their own reasons, but obviously no direct replacements. Then over in Legion of Super-Heroes, one of the most famous and beloved runs that, if you look close enough, most of the creators working today are directly inspired by went down: "5 Years Later". The naming convention and the "look were they are now" feel of it is 100% the inspiration for "One Year Later". And of course we have the New 52 that worked under a 5 year timeline from Johns' first JL arc. Didio and Lee specifically mention that one the mistakes of the New 52 in their eyes was the time line not being hammered out before they jumped you into the new versions of the heroes. Thus, makes a lot of sense that they'd hammer out a real timeline now, but, like the New 52 they'd leave 5 years for totally new back story for our older heroes and our newer heroes. It's the Legion 5 years later effect.

    This would essentially allow them to relaunch the books as if this were a reboot, have new leads as if this were a reboot, have 5 years of new history as if this were reboot, but still keep all the older history.

    At first I though Jon would be the only one experiencing a 4 even 5 year time skip with the Legion in an "Ultimate" version of 5 Years Later, but I've since backed down from that theory. As I understand it, you're a fan of Naomi, right? Well, part of the reason I backed down form the theory was because I noticed how many parallels Bendis was creating between not just her and Superman, but also specifically her and Jon Kent. Then I noticed that they're even the same age (17). It seems very likely that they'll remain contemporaries.

    Young Justice being an ongoing book for Wonder Comics was my biggest question mark though. How could you age them up 4 to 5 years and still be Young Justice? The show answered that by injecting new younger members and having the older ones as mentors and "upperclassmen" (apparently there's plans for Tim and Steph in the bat books outside of YJ). This lets them stay in the book and the book stay in the Wonder Comics line, but it also allows the current members to age. Teen Lantern was sort of my tip off to this. Several times Bendis made a point to make sure we knew that she was 11 years old. If you time skip 4 to 5 years she becomes 15 or 16, and not only fills out her name better, but also stays more in line the age of comic teenage characters. And Bendis did specficially say that the way that he'll be adding members to the team won't be what you'd expect, and that he'll be taking some inspiration from the show.

    The time skip also allows for things like Leviathan to really take root as DC's SHIELD, Aquaman and Mera's kid to be up and running (possibly Wonder Girl's too if my theory is right), and things like the New Krypton outpost in Superman to have made some headway.

    And just as a bit of fun trivia, 5 Years Later over in the Legion book from the 80s actually had Sun Boy become President of Earth/the United Planets after leaving the Legion, and now we have Superman about to become the President of Earth in the present with a possible time skip in the making. *Shrugs* I think it's a deliberate "Ultimate" style tip of the hat to that.

    I fully admit that it's very tinfoil hat-y, but I think there's a real chance of this. Sorry for the length of this message btw.

    This was more directed at the fans, to be honest. We always like to call the publisher out on things. Fans aren’t exempt from criticism.
    Imagine being proud to have negative traits. I canít relate.

    What was the not-subtly subtle way confirmation of 5G?

    Eh. It's not like this would be the first time those characters were replaced. It could be a hint to 5G, but it could also just be a nod to past continuity and futures we've already seen.

    Also Clark Kent was said to be the "20th century" Superman, not "21st." Normally I wouldn't think anything of that but with all this talk on this new timeline...

    Superman wasn't much replaced. And dick being batman has been temporary thing. It could have not been even recorded history .

    What about Jean-Paul and Jim? Unlike Dick, it was obvious those two weren't Bruce.

    Bendis did say that the final page of LOSH #1 would hint at what's coming up with DC, so the "20th century" line jumped out at me too.

Damian might be levanthian.(the guy is too concerned about jon)

    If 5G Damian is leviathan who's come from the future with his legion ring then how is he interacting with young him? There wouldn't be two of them am I right?
