    I thought so at first but if so it’s a very elaborate one. Editors on Twitter are acting like it’s real, Hester says he’s involved in one of the pitches. I think this is legit.

    Something like that would generate more negative PR than DC can risk these days...

    When the competition can greenlight books for characters without doing this then I don't see the excuse.

    So they should greenlight 16 new series without gauging interest in them first? Sounds like an easy way to set a book up for failure and for a company to take a financial loss.

    So happy that Blue Beetle is an option.

    That Ambush Bug story sounds amazing! Too bad itís not going to win.

    Unless they top it off with a big, real announcement right after.

    ConnEr Kent flies. ConnOr Hawke has a bow. Batman's kid is named DamiAn.

    To do spoiler tags, use [ spoil ] at the start of the sentence and [ /spoil ] at the end, without the spaces. You're welcome!

    That has NOT stopped them in the past.....

    And what market research would DC be using?

    Nightrunner: Love in Paris - All of Paris is obsessed with an intoxicating virtual songstress, whose holographic stage shows are lighting up the City of Love. But when the “vocaloid” ingenue’s fans start to disappear, Nightrunner must track down the infamous developer behind the eerily realistic celebrity AI.
    He has 6 appearances. So being in Batman justifies him a shot over Duke Thomas? Tim Drake?

    Justice League Queer - Eight young queer heroes investigate a series of monstrous manifestations around the world and discover that something much more terrifying is coming.
    Asteria: The Last Amazon - An immortal Amazonian champion returns to Man’s World to discover her and the Amazons’ sacrifice now forgotten; a new breed of hero seeking power, glory, and dominance; and the secret family she left behind offering one last chance at redemption.
    She has ONE appearance and was in WW 84

    Robins - In the BlŁdhaven apartment of Dick Grayson, a group of young people meets for coffee, doughnuts, and kvetching (between long, awkward silences.) The only thing they have in common? All were once Kid Wonders. Sidekicks to Batman. Robins.
    Son of the Creeper - An awkward teenager’s life is turned upside down when he inherits his dad’s chaotic powers. With his family in danger, Kieran Millar must save a father he doesn’t know from the monster he’s become.]
    Etta Candy: Holliday Hero, Inc. - On summer break from Holliday College, an accident grants Etta Candy her very own superpowers! Taking on the new superhero mantle of Candy Stripe, Etta joins forces with Wonder Woman, Amanda Waller, and her Beeta Lambda sorority sisters to create Holliday Hero Inc.—an all-girls agency sworn to protect and assist anyone in need. WOO WOO!
    The Brave and the Bug: Crisis on Infinite Ambush - Ambush Bug must team up with some of DC’s greatest heroes to survive an attack by revenge-seeking Ambush Bugs from across the MULTIVERSE who never got to exist thanks to AB’s refusal to be rebooted.

    How would a marketing firm come up with Nightrunner and Asteria?

    Some of these sound FAKE.

    Who are the creative teams? Why are they not pitching this stuff with videos?

    They want folks to blindly vote for books that could have Scott Lodbell as writer.

    Now some of those have ZERO business being a comic. Now an OGN-different story.

    Yeah, and then those books fail and comic companies use that failure as an excuse to barely use the characters anymore.

    Let's say Zatanna wins this thing and gets the book. If, say, Ambush Bug get the runner up spot, or even makes it to the top 4, DC could view that as strong interest in the character and use him more in other books. That's market research.

    Looks like next week Monday is when they’ll announce creative teams for the books that make it past the first round.

    it's dumb but hey, at least this way no one can say "who wanted this!?" when the series drops. it's gimmicky but it's fun, I love these little competitions. it's some promotional hunger games type situation, I dig it.

    It’s funny to compare the votes on Twitter to the ones on Instagram. I could see JLQ winning the Twitter poll but losing overall still because of Instagram votes.
