Snyder, Manapul and co. put pedal to Metal with a thorough makeover starting in May…
No Surrender? Meet No Justice.
DC on Friday afternoon announced a new weekly miniseries in May that promises to upend the Justice League and kick off a series of new titles this spring and summer.
Justice League: No Justice — by writers Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV and Joshua Williamson, and artist Francis Manapul — spins out of the Metal event and will see the League divided into different groups while battling an extinction-level threat (of course) at the urging of Brainiac.
After that? Snyder will take over the prime Justice League book as DC launches a new family of JL titles beginning in June, featuring Tynion, Williamson and others. (UPDATED: DC has confirmed that the current JL titles will end in April: Justice League will end with Issue #43 and Justice League of America will end with Issue #29.)
Marvel, for what it’s worth, has its own weekly story going on right now starring its top-line team — Avengers: No Surrender. You be the judge whether one has anything to do with the other.
Anyway, check out the four color-coded teams outlined by DC. They include most of the major players — plus heroes long associated with the League but underutilized of late, such as Martian Manhunter and Zatanna:
— Team Mystery, including Superman, Starfire, Martian Manhunter, Sinestro and Starro:
— Team Entropy, featuring Batman, Beast Boy, Lobo, Lex Luthor and Deathstroke:
— Team Wonder, featuring Wonder Woman, Raven, Doctor Fate, Zatanna and the Demon:
— Team Wisdom, featuring the Flash, the Atom, Harley Quinn, Robin and Cyborg:
The first mystery? Not a Green Lantern in sight.
Justice League: No Justice will run four issues and launches May 9.
