Earlier in the year, there were two rumours gaining ground over what Jim Lee was up to after Justice League. One was that he was launching a new Superman book with Scott Snyder called Man Of Steel. Bleeding Cool pitched its tent to that particular field, but we did also note a competitive interest, that of Jim Lee relaunching his original Image title, WildCATS into the New DCU.
Well it appears that plan hasn’t been abandoned for Man Of Steel, merely postponed, with a planned launch date for 2014. San Diego Comic Con would be a good place to announce it.
Of late, more and more Wildstorm and WildCATS characters have been working their way into the New DCU. We began with Grifter and Voodoo and have now seen Warblade, Helspont, Team 7 and Zealot pop by, with Ladytron and Spartan coming next year. Preparing the way?
