There’s been a lot of talk over the past few weeks about the villains in DC Comics-The New 52. You’ve probably noticed that we’ve been using the hashtag, “#thenewvillains,” both here on THE SOURCE and on Twitter . There will certainly be plenty of villains making their debuts in the coming weeks. While by now many of these villains have already been introduced, not all of them have been fully revealed just yet.
Writer & Artist Super-team Headline Midnight Madness Festivities at Midtown Comics in NY Times Square August 30th
Come August 30th, the streets of New York may be getting some extra super heroes, as hundreds of costumed fans are expected in-line outside of New York’s Midtown Comics (200 West 40th street) in anticipation of DC Comics midnight launch of its new No. 1 titles.
Mysteries deepen as secrets begin pouring out. Hidden identities begin to reveal themselves. Alliances form on both sides of good and evil. And as new villains launch attacks, new heroes will emerge onto the scene. This November, nothing is off limits.
When the Justice League of America decided to make their new headquarters in the battered city of Detroit, they had hoped to help rebuild a sense of community. Unfortunately, their arrival only attracted darkness and evil.
After Felix Faust covers the city in darkness and despair, the Justice League succumbs to their insecurities and feelings of hopelessness. The team – made up of Vixen, Vibe, Gypsy, Steel, The Martian Manhunter, The Elongated Man, and Aquaman – has one last chance to overcome their “second rate” status and save Detroit.
