    I'd bet my own money there will be a Green Lantern title. The ending at 12 is only due to Morrison finishing his story.

    As a huge JSA fan, I don’t see DC putting in time or energy into an ongoing title. Even with the success of Stargirl and their connection to the Black Adam film, it seems we are destined for teases.

    More than likely we will be bludgeoned to death with the boring silver age heroes and Batman. Even though the JSA is far more interesting than any of the Justice League members.

    Green Arrow would also be a new launch - Oliver hasn't had a book for a couple of years.

    What will become of Black Label? The current Hellblazer title was the only continuing series from DC on my "must buy every issue" list, and now it's cancelled. Without that and some of the Black Label mini-series, I shall be giving DC less money and attention than I have been. Sorry, but I'm just not a Bat-person, and that is apparently DC's core audience now.

    They said they would cut 20 percent, they wouldn't be going back up 20 percent.

    I don't see the Bendis Legion surviving much longer. The only way a Legion book can rhrieve is is you pull in all the fandom, and the Bendis Legion is certainly not doing that.

    Has there been any consistently successful Legion since the 90s?

    I'm really hoping Legion will be Bendis' last DC book. His YJ was cancelled and he's quitting Superman. So...fingers crossed.

    It was stupid of DC to hire him in the first place. His best work is waaaaay behind him.

    9 batbooks
    5 superbooks
    2 Justice League books
    2 GL cosmic books
    WW
    Flash
    Teen Titans

    And 2 open slots to run 4 issue minis every month. So we end up with 24 stories for the year, ... these will be used to tell stories that writers bring to editorial, including new heroes.

    Scattered among the bat and Sups books will be all the characters from those franchise, I am not saying Batman in all 9 books.

    Itís nice to get a schedule down, and artist can finish the book and everyone will know whatís coming, for example, each week in November we get a Martian Manhunter book, each week in December we get a Shazam Christmas tale, etc.
    Shazam and Legion were both in the top 12 of ongoings DC published in February. Much better than Teen Titans.
    Their numbers might not sustain ongoings for 2 more years if sales keep falling, but DC would be dumb to cancel books that are doing well currently.
    The JSA's eventual return to an ongoing has some buzz around it, so I think it could do well if given a good creative team. Heck, Earth-2 lasted for quite a while even when DC seemed intent on completely destroying any potential that book might have had. A proper JSA book would probably do a lot better.

    It certainly seems that way from the feedback on this forum. I've been out of the Legion game for so long I'm neither her nor their on it, though I did drop it 4 issues in. It would be interesting to see some reliable sales figures on it with COVID and all.

    Not since 2018, I think. If Green Arrow gets a shot at another ongoing, I have a sneaking suspicion Bendis will do it.

    He is quitting Superman? I wouldn't be surprised. I think he only signed on to do Superman under the assumption 5G was going to be a thing.

    Bendis can still write good stuff "when he puts his mind to it". However, he should be kept to the type of books he does well - crime/street level. He has been phoning it in for almost 10 years now. I've never liked him on big, mainstream stuff.

    This, pretty much.

    Looks like JLDark is getting ready to end, too, with everything tying back to the opening arc.

    I'm just waiting to see what comes out of the inevitable relaunches.

    At least it looks like books are being given actual endings, unlike in 2011 where everything just kinda... stopped...
