The Mary Sue Interview: Jeff Lemire on Justice League United And Its New Cree Superhero, Equinox

At Emerald City Comicon last weekend, writer Jeff Lemire took some time to talk to us about the completion of his mini-series Trillium, a high concept science fiction story about a love that could potentially end the universe, and the upcoming series Justice League United (originally titled Justice League Canada), launching April 23rd. Replacing the title Justice League of America, the new Justice League United team features characters such as Animal Man, Green Arrow, Supergirl, Martian Manhunter, Stargirl, Hawkman, and Adam and Alanna Strange.

Last week DC gave us our first look at new superhero Miiyahbin, aka Equinox, a Cree sixteen-year-old whose powers connect to the changing seasons. Equinox is inspired by Shannen Koostachin, a real-life Cree activist who lobbied for funding for First Nations education before her death in a car crash in 2010. She died shortly before her sixteenth birthday.

Here’s what Jeff had to share with us.

Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. – The New 52 Flash Legacy Part 3

Quick Flash recap. First we had Jay Garrick. Then we had a reboot in 1956 that introduced Barry Allen, said to live on a parallel Earth. Then a reboot in 1986 made Barry’s sidekick the new Flash and also altered history so Jay now lived on the same earth. In 2011, DC had another company-wide reboot in which all comic titles were cancelled and 52 new titles were released. In the New 52, Jay Garrick and Barry Allen once again live on separate Earths and Kid Flash is a very different character. Let’s get to it!

Wonder Woman vs. Parademons in this Justice League: War Clip

DC’s upcoming animated feature Justice League: War is based on the Geoff Johns and Jim Lee story from the New 52 and the newest clip from it features Wonder Woman fighting some Parademons. However you may feel about the storyline, the video above is… not exactly promising. Sure, it’s nice to see Wonder Woman kicking ass, but the random costume that doesn’t match anything she’s ever worn before and the fairly wooden voice acting doesn’t exactly bode well for the film. Thoughts? Opinions? Fire away!

DC Comics Have Turned Lobo Into A Male Model

So, you know how we often criticize the way female comic book characters are overly sexualized? And how some at DC were altered specifically (and drastically) for the New 52 reboot? Well it looks like it’s finally happened to one of their male characters. Ladies and gentlemen, this is your new Lobo. Hit the jump to see the full look and see a comparison with the old version.

Check Out Which DC Comics’ Characters You’ll See In Scribblenauts (Besides Stephanie Brown)

I just found out Scribblenauts Unleashed: A DC Comics Adventure was a thing the other day when, at E3, a small clip was show featuring Batgirl Stephanie Brown. As if that wasn’t reason enough to buy the game, Warner Bros. has released a bunch of promotional shots showing who else from the DC Universe we’ll be seeing in the game. Characters would be enough, but it’s what the characters are doing here that really makes it special. For instance, Alfred doing laundry and a birthday party for Green Lantern Mogo. A few other things to note: the game has Harley Quinn wearing her New 52 costume, while letting Zatanna stay in her old one. And while I guess Scribblenauts isn’t strictly a kids game, I was slightly surprised to see the Joker described as, ”A psychopath and mass murderer who finds amusement in the death and torture of others.” Anyway, take a look to see if your favorite character will be playable (you’d be surprised how many are in here) and see some more in the trailer.

DC’s New 52 Wants to Be Your Valentine. Will You Say Yes?

Readers who picked up DC’s (deep breath) Young Romance: A New 52 Valentine’s Day Special #1 this week were treated to an assortment of punch out-able mini-Valentine’s Day cards. I’d like to punch some of these cards out. By which I mean… look, I love puns, but some of these are bad. And not bad in a good way. Bad in a lazy way. But I guess bad in a lazy way is good in a Valentine’s Day way because Valentine’s card puns tend not to be good, even in a bad way…

Sorry ’bout that. I think I curdled my brain trying to figure out what the play on words is with “You’ve got Grayson beauty.” Someone throw me a bone here?

It’s A Christmas Miracle! – DC Comics Rehires Gail Simone For Batgirl

Ok, first of all, don’t get excited about the image. I chose it for obvious reasons, my head is spinning and I have no idea what the hell is going on. Ok, I kind of know what’s going on and it’s that Gail Simone is back on Batgirl at DC Comics after being unceremoniously fired two weeks ago. WHAT IS HAPPENING I AM SO CONFUSED?!?!
