Justice League, Aquaman, Flash, Green Arrow, Wonder Woman, Action Comics, Superman, Batman, Detective Comics, Catwoman, Batgirl, Green Lantern.
The other 40 were either cancelled or relaunched. Mostly cancelled.
Now most comics do something big to celebrate their 50th issues. And these titles will be no exception come March.
But even though the New 52 livery has been dropped and replaced by DC YOU, the number 52 remains rather special at DC Comics. Which means big things may happen in these twelve titles.
With the Big Bad for Superman coming up to issue 50 will be Vandal Savage, known for his immortality and time travel, could there be a journey back in time to the moment the Flashpoint created the New 52? Could any changes demanded be made right at the source?
And could at least one of the four year survival titles be about to be the latest to face the chop as it hits that magic figure? More on that soon….
