Pull Box: January 2

NEWCOMICS

AC
Ever since its reveal in The Silencer, Leviathan has been revealed to be pulling the strings in the darkest parts of the DC Universe for years. Operating in shadows that the heroes didn’t even know existed, and manipulating weaknesses in their abilities and personalities for years. Now, they’re slowly starting to take control over several books, and becoming a legitimate threat to the world without anyone being any wiser. A slow burn villain is most certainly the best one, and with Red Cloud working with Leviathan, things should get much more interesting.
DC
The countdown to Detective Comics #1000 has been absolutely phenomenal. A personal story that recalls the well-known origin of Batman in unique ways, as each and every person that Batman loves is picked apart, one by one. Pushing him further and further to the depths of his soul to grapple with his own humanity and past. This is storytelling at its best, and I know it should culminate into one hell of a thousandth issue.
HC
This is such a unique and fantastic story. A murder mystery with a real message at its heart, that humanizes DC’s heroes in a way that they have never really explored. The mental health and psychological issues that comes with being a hero, and dealing with the loss and failure, and much more. It’s dramatic, with a genuine conflict that could legitimately affect the DC Universe moving forward. Real stakes for the heroes. It’s a wonderful change of pace.
FL
This was a strangely paced issue. Flash and Fuerza defeated the Sage Force demons, and stopped Cauldron in Corto Maltese, meanwhile Commander Cold is making himself more comfortable in Central City, and their cases are starting to crossover with each other. It’s obvious that Trickster is behind the Sage Force weapon, but how does he know how to manipulate it? That’s definitely the big question. JLO
There are a lot of mysteries at play here, and I’m starting to get a little worried that they may not pull together in the most cohesive way. At the very least, we know now that Darkseid is most certainly playing at something, finding Blackfire, Starfire’s Sister, in the ruins of Tamarand with a plan to manipulate the troubled worlds of the Ghost Sector. That should at least make this series more interesting.
SIL
I really wasn’t expecting this turn of events, as Leviathan continues to one-up every single hero and villain across the DC Universe with a skilled manipulation that comics hasn’t seen in ages. It’s incredible. But, now I wonder… Did she kill honor? Are there plans to revive her with the Lazarus Pit? What is Talia’s goal, right now? Lots of questions, and the more Leviathan stretches into other books, the more excited I get for each issue of The Silencer.WW
A solid, albeit slightly uneventful issue for Wonder Woman. Of course the children that she rescued belonged to the Prime Minister, naturally drawing her to him. Aphrodite in the fray throws quite a few things into question, and I still say it’s the result of the Otherkind from Justice League Dark destroying the home of the Gods. Though, it could be something more.
TER
The Terrifics even get their own villain team! And it’s a crazy multiversal team! That’s awesome. Of course, the team would be miserable without each other at this point. The only friends they had were each other… now they’re forced to confront that fact. The Plastic Man interaction was certainly the most interesting, with Eel’s son, Luke, being introduced to the series, and his plastic abilities. I wonder if that will come into play in the near future?

Doom Patrol Series Greenlit at DC Universe

Greg Berlanti is a man on a mission. He now has 13 series greenlit at once, giving him the record for most active television series in production at once, and he’s added an adaptation of Doom Patrol set to debut in 2019 on The DC Universe streaming service. Doom Patrol will pick up after the events of Titans, where the group will make their debut, with Cyborg appearing to the group with a warning.

Doom Patrol is an adaptation of one of DC’s most beloved group of outcast heroes. Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl, and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder, aka The Chief. Members of the Doom Patrol each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities – but left them scarred, and traumatized. Afterwards, the team found purpose with Chief, who brought them together and helped form the family they know today.

Geoff Johns Confirms Doom Patrol in Titans

DP

Writer, and head of Creative with DC Entertainment, Geoff Johns, has confirmed that the Titans won’t be alone in their live-action debut on DC’s streaming service, as episode 5 will feature the introduction of the Doom Patrol. The Doom Patrol is a superhero team consisting of many of DC’s more eccentric characters, made popular by Grant Morrison in the early-90’s.

Beast Boy was an original member of the Doom Patrol, so it’s possible that factors into their inclusion, but with Hawk and Dove also joining the Titans, it’s looking to be a haven for lesser known live-action debuts of DC characters.
