    Didn't they also have a whiteboard with cryptic scribbling all over it back around (the weekly series) 52?

    Well, last time Bruce died, we got some of the greatest Batman stories ever, so maybe this will have a positive effect.

    Still, I'm annoyed about the less popular characters who don't have a reserve of great iconic stories to fall back on. They just get killed.
    Was there suppose to be a third image here?

    Hal should definitely be placed somewhere.

    I don’t think the characters main books will entirety affect them. That’s like that new 52 event forever evil I think? Where the Justice league went away but the main books still shown them in the same timelines or further out? anyways Diana better be the one to live to tell the tale. She’s been through hell just to get back for her to just “perish again”.

    As the years pass by.. more of the golden age will enter the public domain slowly over time.

    Can expect DC not to use public domain characters or versions if they no longer fully exclusively own them. I doubt they want to bother with brand confusion.

    However, all of the derivations and ideas and elements, the comics created later in the silver age age to up will still be only for DC to uses for years. Plus Trademarks for names and logos can be renewed.

    Yeah, Batman will probably live. I hadn't seen that the variant cover was already confirmed as to be symbolic and not necessarily indicative of who all dies. I mean, unless of course that's Jace under the cowl here. But I wouldn't count on it.

    Justice Society is already mentioned on the board, so Rise of probably is Rise of the Fifth Generation or something of that ilk.

    That specific part speaks more to just how much of a bust Bendis' tenure at DC has been more than anything, imo.

    I'm kinda disappointed ngl, I love Naomi and Keli is cool but everything else was underwhelming.

    Bendis' run on JL from the beginning has just felt like DC giving him the book as an apology for cutting his Superman and Legion stuff so short. That stuff was clearly meant to go on for years, but sales were just not supporting it.

    I don't think GL or SM will die, because they aren't even supposed to be on the League right now. Characters without a solo series like Green Arrow, Black Canary and J'onn are likely candidates to die.

    Justice Society is already mentioned on the board, so Rise of probably is Rise of the Fifth Generation or something of that ilk.
    This is a strong possibility or a league with different generations of legacy characters mixed together.

    I know they're niche, but I really hope this means a push for Doom Patrol and Checkmate. And the Outsiders...again.

    Of course, my first hope would be they get a good creative team.
    Comics were definitely happier, breezier and more confident in their own strengths before Hollywood and the Internet turned the business of writing superhero stories into the production of low budget storyboards or, worse, into conformist, fruitless attempts to impress or entertain a small group of people who appear to hate comics and their creators. -- Grant Morrison, 2008

    Does DC have any "good creative team" possibilities any more these days?
