Flash #49, DC Comics

Superhero comics are always gonna be weird, even when the aesthetics of the time they occupy are trying to lean hard into more Serious Issues. Like, say, that time in 1991 when Vandal Savage tried to eliminate the drug trade and the Flash got shot, killed, resurrected by a cyborg, and ended up with a new costume in the process.

five legacy

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

This video takes a look at the concept of the legacy hero, those who are inspired by another hero to take up their name, costume, or gimmicks, and counts down the five most successful successors.

Ten DC Teens We’d Like To See In ‘Young Justice’ Season 3

yj_featured

We've all heard by now that Young Justice is finally coming back for a third season. But we don't know anything yet about what that's going to consist of. For DC fans like myself, one of the best things about Young Justice was its expansiveness. This was a show about an ever-growing team of teen heroes, in a world full of other heroes and villains.

Anyone could show up on Young Justice. It featured Mal Duncan as the Guardian, and had a subplot revolving around Zatanna, Zatara, and Doctor Fate. You never knew who from the DC Universe was going to appear next, either as a member of the team, or as a guest for an episode or two. With the show coming back, we've decided to speculate on which characters might make their debut in Young Justice's third season. Here are some DC teens we want to see added to the mix.

The-Flash-Featured

More than most, the mantle of The Flash is defined by legacy and by family.
