    What a strange, slightly bad faith bit of promotion - that's some interesting pitches for some good characters being burned off here.

    On the other hand Robins is likely to win, and I'd read that.

    Yeah I voted for Robins, poor JLQ doesn't stand a chance

    I don't have any interest in a Robins series, since I am not a fan of how they are written as very dull archetypes when they are all together, but I can't imagine any of those other series beating a Robins series in a tournament. Dick, Jason, Tim, and Damian fans maybe outnumber all the fans combined from those other series. I'd be very surprised if it didn't win.

    I am rooting for Nightrunner myself, with zero expectation of that happening.

    Voted for JLQ because while I would like a Robins book, I have no trust in DC to make something worthwhile. They are pretty close right now. JLQ% has 48,3 and Robins 51,7%, But I'm guessing Robins will still win. If it wins, its biggest competitor will be GLs, I assume.

    Also, is that truly a Round Robin? I always understood something else under that term.

    THE EXPANDED STORY DETAILS
    TITLE
    WHAT IT’S ABOUT



    Green Lanterns: Underworld On Fire
    A deadly outfit of space outlaws are razing the intergalactic underworld sector by sector under the command of a disruptive new kingpin, in search of an ancient payday worth becoming the target of every power player in the galaxy—including Sinestro! Green Lanterns Kyle Rayner and Kilowog are put on the case, but will Kyle be able to do this one by the book when he finds out who’s behind it all?

    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.

    Zatanna and the King of Nightmares
    Something is terribly wrong with Zatanna’s powers, but before she can heal herself, she is forced to confront her worst fears in a strange new spiritual realm ruled by the terrifying otherworldly foe known as the King of Nightmares.


    Lobo / Animal Man: Scorched Earth
    Lobo. The name makes entire alien races collectively wet themselves with fear. The Main Man is proudly hyper-violent, arrogant, loud, stubborn, impatient, and ill-tempered. The best thing about him is that after he completes his contract, he leaves. Until now…

    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.

    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.

    Robins
    In the Blüdhaven 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.


    Paws Off the Justice League
    When the Justice League disappears, Jimmy Olsen and the Super Pets must save the world from certain doom by posing as the missing League.

    Jesse Quick: Control
    When Jesse Quick uses her speed to access an alien artifact from a long-dead civilization, she finds herself imbued with the ability to harness and control the elements around her as her former super-speed is drained. But, when the power begins to corrupt Jesse, she must decide to give up these gifts or risk becoming, quite literally, her own worst enemy.


    Blue Beetle: Graduation Day
    Trapped between heroics and his future, Jaime Reyes is directionless. When the Reach interrupt Jaime’s high school graduation, things only get worse. Starfire becomes a new mentor to Blue Beetle, but is it Jaime or the Scarab that’s really in the driver’s seat? And why hasn’t Jaime applied to any colleges?

    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.


    Swamp Thing: A House of Secrets
    When love will not die, the dead must rise from the grave to kill it.
    Louisiana, 1905: Caught in an eternal triangle of love and living death, the monstrous Alex Olsen; his widow, Linda; and his undead rival, Damian, vie for control of the cursed swamp where life, death, the past, and the future spiral into one never-ending nightmare.

    Suicide Squad Seven
    Harley Quinn leads a team of criminals—a millionaire adventurer, a stage magician, a sugar-obsessed serial killer, a delusional former superhero, a drunk assassin, a mute metahuman, and a child who becomes a monster—to stop the centuries-old Church of Blood from trying to destroy all of humankind.


    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.

    Superman & Lois: Ignition
    Our solar system is a machine—and its purpose is to trap and kill Superman! The sun is darkening, Mars’s orbit is changing, and a mysterious citadel in Jupiter’s Great Red Eye has awoken; it is time for Kal-El to stand against the very end of his world. But he won’t be doing it alone: Lois Lane is suited up and blasting off to get the biggest story in human history…and to watch Clark’s back as he faces his greatest challenge yet. Facing ancient aliens and planet-sized machines, trickster asteroids and the gigakrakens of Neptune, Superman and Lois will fight across all nine planets to prevent Earth’s dark destiny and save our future!

    I'm really having a difficult time believing any of these ideas are serious. Maybe it's just me, but they all sound...bad.

    Robins and JLQ are 50% right now. Better vote and make others vote if we want that to happen

    None of these sound very interesting to me

    Kyle Rayner

    Zatanna

    Creeper son - Never care about Lobo

    Robins - They really should mention who the queer young heroes are, that might give them an edge over having the Robins fight again

    Super Pets

    I don't even know who Nightrunner is

    Swamp Thing

    Superman Lois - Eff off with another Amazon, you can't even include all the current Wonder family

    I think JLQ might have a chance everyone who is mad about too many Bat-books will vote against Robins.

    Considering that in just one hour JLQ shoot from 30% to 50% and the poll itself got 1000 votes more than every other poll, I'd say that one is being rigged.

    I've waited far too long for an actual Robins series. Especially now that Steph is back. Sorry JLQ. But I need this lol

    "All you need to do is comment below and let us know which tale you’re rooting for, and why, or vote on the final poll when it is posted here in the DC Community. "

    So the twitter poll isn't the real one?

    I would read any of the Lanterns, Jesse Quick, Robins, or Nightrunner series for sure. Probably the Superman and WW ones, too. Just make a bunch of them.
