The end of the year is always a time for reflection, and we're taking this opportunity to look back at the long and weird history of superhero comics by picking our favorite heroes from each decade. Our panelists must put together fantasy teams drawing from the last 80+ years of superhero comics, using heroes from any publisher.

This week we’re creating our dream cast for Gotham City Sirens, the planned Harley Quinn-centered spinoff of Suicide Squad from director David Ayer and artist Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
Poison Ivy and Catwoman have been discussed as the other central characters, but we've filled out our cast with some of Gotham's female heroes.
On Saturday December 3, 2016, an Indiana-based comics retail worker named Mary tweeted a story about an an encounter with a young Supergirl fan that made waves across the comics internet, reaching thousands of fans, as well as comic creators and the cast of the Supergirl TV show. ComicsAlliance caught up with Mary to talk about the state of LGBTQ representation in superhero comics, and to find out which books she would recommend to young readers.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
This week's selection of the best cosplay ever includes Wolverine, Star Wars' Mara Jade, Batwoman, RWBY's Ruby Rose, and more!
Greg Rucka was born on this day in 1969, and over the course of his career in comics and novels he's made his name as one of the go-to authors for gripping and tense thriller stories, as well as bold statements on the nature of superheroes, and careful and nuanced examinations of iconic characters.
Batwoman's returning to her own solo ongoing in 2017, written by Marguerite Bennett with art by Steve Epting.
This is about as exciting a creative team as Batwoman could possibly have. Bennett already writes an alternate version of Kate Kane in DC Comics Bombshells, and in that and her other books like Insexts and Angela: Queen of Hell, she has not only proven herself to be one of the most talented young writers on the rise, she's also shown a particular interest in portraying the lives of queer women, all of which makes her the ideal choice for Batwoman.
When DC Rebirth was announced, it promised to bring back a sense of levity and community that had been missing from the DC Universe since the shift to the New 52 --- and there's nothing like a holiday special to lighten the mood and remind people of the communal relationships between superheroes, so that's what we're getting this holiday season!
This weekend we were at Flame Con in Brooklyn to capture the kaleidoscopic cosplay strutting through the queer comics convention's second exhibition. Highlights include Stevonnie, Wiccan, Jubilee, Stranger Things' Barb, Rufio, multiple Magnetos, and a disgruntled Asgardian coffee shop employee!
Can’t decide which superheroes are your favorites? Why not enjoy a little bit of all of them? That's the great thing about superhero teams; they bring together everyone from the most famous and iconic heroes to the most bizarre and obscure. And no superteam captures that idea better than the Justice League.
For your viewing pleasure, we’ve amassed our own super gallery featuring cosplayers portraying members of the Justice League throughout the years. Every cape, every cowl, every leotard featured shows off the enormous wealth of talent on the part of the cosplayers who take up these heroes' mantles. These are the best Justice League cosplays ever.
With only two issues out already, Detective Comics has already become the standout title of DC's Rebirth line. The focus on the Batman family has not only put together a team of characters that I don't think we've ever seen together, but it's opening up the door for some bold new relationships --- and the return of a few that we haven't seen in a while.
And when the third issue hits next week, that's exactly what we're getting. As Batman is brutally attacked by the seemingly unstoppable soldiers of the Colony, Batwoman is questioning her pace in training the next generation of Gotham City's vigilantes --- and she talks through her problems in a visit from Renee Montoya. Check out a preview!
