Ever since Robin, Kid Flash, and Aqualad teamed up to take on Mr. Twister in The Brave and the Bold #54, way back in the summer of 1964, The Teen Titans have been the second most important superhero team in the DC Universe. And considering the most important team, the Justice League, is basically a pantheon of gods, that's nothing to sneeze at. Being comprised of younger heroes, the Titans are the team who live on the cutting edge and reflect the times (in the strange ways that comics do) whether it's crazy made-up Bob Haney 1960's slang, or Marv Wolfman and George Perez injecting X-Men-inspired 1980's soap opera.
We put together a gallery of the best Teen Titans fan art to celebrate these heroic kids.
By now you’ve seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and if you haven’t, then you’re still probably well-aware of the Justice League cameos — they weren’t exactly kept secret, after all (Warner Bros. even spilled the details of The Flash’s cameo to EW weeks ago). In any case, it looks like we may see two of those characters team up in a film separate from the Justice League movies, as Batman v Superman producer Deborah Snyder reiterates that #NotAllDCMovies will have the same gritty tone.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice just gets curiouser and curiouser. Earlier today, Warner Bros. released a totally bizarre (to say the least) deleted scene from the film, which appeared to incorporate a couple of crucial elements from the DC comic book universe. Although ultimately cut from the theatrical version, Zack Snyder confirms that at least one of those things appears elsewhere in the film — you may have spotted it during Cyborg’s cameo.
DC Comics hosted a special livestream event at WonderCon in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon to unveil the creative teams behind its DC Rebirth event, which relaunches the entire DC Universe line with new issue #1s and multiple double-shipping titles. The relaunch will set the future course of DC Comics at a time when fans are wondering whether the company will embrace a new and diversifying audience or double down on serving a shrinking core audience.
The event was introduced by DC All Access host Tiffany Smith, with DC co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio and chief creative officer and Rebirth chief architect Geoff Johns introducing and interviewing the creative teams as they joined them on stage at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
When you look at the DC Universe, you see a whole lot of people running around with ultra-powerful space rings, magic lassos, and cybernetic sound cannons. Like, a lot of people. It's actually at the point where you start to wonder why the government doesn't get involved and at least make someone get a license before they run around starting to shoot criminals with blasts of white noise. Well, now, in the pages of David Walker, Felipe Watanabe and Oclair Albert's Cyborg #9 it seems like they're actually getting around to it - at least where cybernetics are concerned.
Superhero movies are a dominant force in modern blockbuster cinema, but with so many heroes appearing on our screens it can be tough to keep up with the release calendar.
To help make it a little easier for superhero fans to know which weekends to keep free over the next few years, designer Dylan Todd has created this infographic featuring all the upcoming releases from Marvel Studios, Fox, Sony, Warner Bros and more, starring characters from the DC Universe, the Marvel Universe, the X-Men books, Power Rangers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Valiant Universe, and more.
The one and only Batgirl of Burnside is getting her own DC Icons action figure, complete with motorcycle and smartphone this November. That's it. That's the news. We can wrap it up. I could talk about the rest of the new DC Icons announced by DC Collectibles today (via IGN), but then I wouldn't be able to get in my car to drive to Los Angeles and grab this figure from the production room while all of the DC Collectibles employees are at Toy Fair this weekend. I consider myself a patient man, but I can't wait until November for this.
Batgirl was just one of six new figures announced for the Icons line, as well as two accessory packs to add even more Easter egg mayhem to these figures. Technically I guess you would count Grail as a seventh figure even though she's part of a two-pack with Darkseid, but you get what I'm saying. Right?
It's no secret that white male leads have dominated comic books since --- well forever. In the '60s, Marvel and DC finally started to put a change to that with the addition of super-powered people of color, which led to some of today's biggest names in comics. But it still wasn't enough. Eventually the lack of diversity led to the onset of Milestone Media in the '90s, where Dwayne McDuffie, Denys Cowan, Michael Davis, and Derek T. Dingle crafted several intriguing characters. With an increasingly active black nerd, or blerd, community, new black characters are being created every day --- primarily through independent publishers, though Marvel has also kickstarted a focus on one of its most notable black characters --- but more on that later.
To celebrate Black History Month, ComicsAlliance is running down our list of 20 Great Black Comic Book Characters. Our list considers old staples as well as some new favorites, including a certain katana wielding badass, space explorers and of course, plenty of superheroes.
In case you missed DC’s Dawn of the Justice League special on The CW last night, the company’s own Geoff Johns premiered some new concept art for Justice League and its characters while also re-confirming Green Lantern Corps. as another upcoming addition to the DCU. Warner Bros. released one piece of concept art featuring the JL lineup yesterday, but these new videos give us an even better look at designs for Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash.
The Earth One OGN initiative at DC Comics offered the chance for new origin stories to be given to characters like Superman and Batman without readers having to worry about any continuity beyond what happened in those pages. In addition to offering modernized takes on familiar faces, it also gave the creative teams a chance to inject new ideas and style into the mix. It's hard to shake-up characters like Batman and Superman too much without going full '90s, but with characters like the Teen Titans, there's a lot more wiggle room. That's where Terry Dodson comes in.
His redesigns were strong enough for DC Collectibles to turn them into action figures for its Designer Series line. Where Greg Capullo's held the fort firmly with his Batman family pieces, Dodson's figures give us a glimpse at the side of the DCU we don't quite often get to enjoy on the merchandise front, and it's a smart, successful inclusion.
