SDCC09: DCU Editorial

Saturday's panels included DC Universe, a spotlight on Francis Manapul, and the Siegel/Shuster/Superman lawsuit. I can't find anything yet on the last two, so here's the DC stuff.

DC Universe, via Newsarama:

Mon-El's new costume when he joins the Justice League:


The team will have: Mon-El (in a new costume with a Superman "S" on it), Dick Grayson Batman, Donna Troy and Hal Jordan. The other characters are a "mystery," says Robinson. One of them "mystery" members is Congorilla, Robinson pointed out.

Johns said the Legion are going to be in Adventure Comics and Superman, and play a big role the rest of this year and next.

DC Universe, via CBR:
...the new [JLA] team will feature Mon-El in a new Superman-inspired costume, Dick Grayson as Batman and Donna Troy who "I'm going to make her kick ass in this book."

Sorry, the new Mon-El uniform is dorkier than the dorkiest thing ever.

whenever I ee the s on that side I think the wearer shoud don the hotpants.

Michael said...

Me too, Nikki, but it should be a hot blonde girl with a v-neck shirt and long puffy sleeves.

It's not BAD, it's just weird. It's still better than M'Onel/Valor, though, all they did was add the S-shield.

It might look better if someone besides Bagley is drawing it, as well. Mon-El's outfit always looks better when it's NOT depicted as a skin-tight little number.

Oh God, it's horrible... it's even worse than his classic, high class hotel doorman with a cape costume...

Actually, hot pants might be an improvement -- he'd be right in line with Disco Cos, Disco Gim and Disco Tyroc....

Plus I bet he's got some killer legs!
