    I try to think of them as they originally were, and try to ignore what was done to them under Giffen and DeMatteis.

    I love the Global Guardians and have always wanted DC to give them a shot at a series. I really enjoyed the few bits given to them in the first chapter of the Vixen issue of Truth & Justice, despite only two characters present besides Vixen.

    Hopefully more will show up in chapter 2 and there is also
    spoilers:
    Wildstorm's Flint mentioned it will be interesting to see if she shows up as a Global Guardian
    end of spoilers

    The team later reformed as the International Ultramarine Corps with the surviving members and several new members which included Vixen




    Based out of the floating city Superbia

    I really dig Impala's new look:



    I like the look of the new mask/face paint combo and (and this may be a weird one) I dig that his skin tone darkening is part of his hero identity. I do wish his fit was a bit more superheroic but i like the mask and skin enough that I don't mind.
    SIGNAL (Duke Thomas) is DC's secret shonen protagonist! his fandom wikia
    I support militant Professor X
    • Manga: One Piece, My Hero, Mashle, Tokyo Revengers, Jujutsu Kaisen, GoH, Black Clover
    • [DC: Other History of DC
    • [Marvel: Immortal Hulk, Miles Morales: Spiderman, Black Panther, X-books
    • Anticipated titles: MrM Source of Freedom, Static*, Hardware*, Urban Legends, Naomi s2, more Ridley/Batman, FS Gotham

    Uh, most of them were killed in that issue. Though I notice that New Super-Man was listed as a member, and Avery called them her teammates, so she must've been a member as well.

    FS Flash is seven years in the future. Not that Bart or Avery look like they've aged out of their teens at all...

    Wow, his new look is such a huge improvement.
    I love the concept behind the original GG, but they were stereotypical as hell.
    Can't wait to seee Thorne's take on the rest of them.
    Crossing my fingers for Doctor Light to join and maybe Aztek.

    Would love to see more of the Guardians. One of my fave was Little Mermaid.

    Didn't knew about them, finger crossed for some changes for the French one's costumes or, in Fleur-de-Lis case, heroic identity. Because right now, she is basically called Confederate Girl, to give US readers an idea of what the Fleur de Lis is nowadays in France.
