DC Comics Repurposes Vanished Mini-Series As Legends Of Tomorrow Anthology Comic

lotEarlier in the year, DC Comics announced a bunch of new mini-series for January 2016. A number of which seem to have disappeared, as part of some of the big changes DC Comics has been making to their publishing plans, as a result of disappointing sales for the DC YOU relaunch.

Well, it seems that they have found a new home in Legends Of Tomorrow, a new DC Comics anthology series launching in March with a name rather similar to a TV series on its way. Which might help lift sales a tad.

Which is why you may find a few of these descriptions rather familiar…

FIRESTORM, written by Gerry Conway with art by Eduardo Pansica and Rob Hunter:
Firestorm is back! To save Jason Rausch, Firestorm will need to retrieve Danton Black's stolen research from Professor Stein's lab. But if Jason can't fuse with Ronnie by the Firestorm Protocol…who can?

635717467754088290-Jonboy-METAL-MEN-CMYK-PROMO-V.2METAL MEN, written by Len Wein with art by Yildiray Cinar and Trevor Scott:

Doctor Will Magnus' Metal Men may be the next step in robotics technology, but when the mysterious cyber-terrorist known only as Nameless comes after them, they may have met their match!

METAMORPHO, written by Aaron Lopresti with art by Aaron Lopresti and Matt Banning:

Metamorpho—a prisoner of millionaire industrialist Simon Stagg! Now, the only person who can save him is Stagg's beautiful daughter, Sapphire!? But can they defeat Stagg's prehistoric bodyguard, Java?

SUGAR & SPIKE, written by Keith Giffen with art by Bilquis Evely:

The last time we saw Sugar and Spike, they were still in diapers! Now, they're grown up, and they've become private investigators who specialize in cleaning up embarrassing problems for the DCU's greatest heroes. Sugar & Spike's first assignment: retrieve a cache of Batman's retired costumes that have been stolen by Killer Moth!

No mention of Raven, Katana, Swamp Thing or Poison Ivy. Katana was already reincorporated into Suicide Squad Most Wanted: Deadshot/Katana #1 and Swamp Thing and Poison Ivy  have had their series confirmed.
