RWBY returns to DC Comics line but – like Scooby-Doo – it is doing it courtesy of DC Comics IP. In DC's April 2021 solicitations, it is also a Justice League crossover with RWBY by Marguerite Bennett and Aneke. And like Scooby-Doo, it will feature versions of the DC Comics characters suitable to that crossover universe. In this case, Remnant versions of Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman.
RWBY (pronounced "Ruby") is an American anime-styled web series created by Monty Oum for Rooster Teeth. It is set in the fictional world of Remnant, where young people train to become warriors (called Huntsmen and Huntresses) to protect their world from monsters called Grimm. Oum died in 2015, during the production of the third season. Despite the creator's death, the remaining crew members confirmed their intention to continue the series. A digital-first comic book series was published over a year ago, and so it's clearly time for DC Comics to return to the hunt.
What other Remnant versions of DC Comics characters will appear has yet to be stated.
