What to Expect with the 6 New DC Titles

DC released the following descriptions of the upcoming titles:

BATMAN INCORPORATED – Writer: Grant Morrison. Artist: Chris Burnham. The acclaimed ongoing writer of ACTION COMICS, Grant Morrison, presents a fresh take on BATMAN INCORPORATED, in which the Batman brand is franchised globally in preparation for a major international threat.

EARTH 2 – Writer: James Robinson. Artist: Nicola Scott. The greatest heroes on a parallel Earth, the Justice Society combats threats that will set them on a collision course with other worlds.

WORLDS’ FINEST – Writer: Paul Levitz. Artists: George Perez and Kevin Maguire. Stranded on our world from a parallel reality, Huntress and Power Girl struggle to find their way back to Earth 2. Perez and Maguire will be the artists on alternating story arcs.

DIAL H – Writer: China MiĆ©ville. Artist: Mateus Santoluoco. The first ongoing series from acclaimed novelist China MiĆ©ville, this is a bold new take on a cult classic concept about the psychological effects on an everyman who accidentally gains powers to become a hero.

G.I. COMBAT – Writer: J.T. Krul. Artist: Ariel Olivetti. Featuring the return of a classic DC Comics series, THE WAR THAT TIME FORGOT, along with rotating back-up stories and creative teams – including THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER, with writers Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti and artist Dan Panosian; and THE HAUNTED TANK, with writer John Arcudi and artist Scott Kolins.

THE RAVAGERS – Writer: Howard Mackie. Artist: Ian Churchill. Spinning off from TEEN TITANS and SUPERBOY, this series finds four superpowered teens on the run and fighting against the organization that wants to turn them into supervillains.

DC Comics Replacing 6 New 52 Titles.

It was bound to happen eventually.  DC Comics just announced the first New 52 books to be cancelled.
The following DC NEW 52 titles will be cancelled with issue 8:
OMAC
Mister Terrific
Hawk and Dove
Blackhawks
Static Shock
Men of War

The following new books will replace the cancelled books:
Batman Inc
Earth 2
Worlds Finest (featuring Huntress and Power Girl)
The Ravagers
Dial H
G.I. Combat

My quick thoughts:
I love OMAC and Blackhawks and really hate to see these go.
I hate the Batman Inc storyline, but I'm in love with Dial H for Hero.
Why not yank Firestorm and Savage Hawkman or Captain Atom and keep OMAC?

HeroClix Supremacy League Update #2

The league is on hold until I can figure out how to use the crazy league board. Details coming soon.

Saturday, January 07, 2012

HeroClix Supremacy League Update


HEROCLIX SUPREMECY LEAGUE
LEAGUE #1 – FAMINE
Cost = $10 to participate
League Dates:
January 8 – January 29

How does it work?
Players on the outer rings of the Supremacy League leaderboard earn “Fight” tokens which they use to challenge a player on the next innermost ring. 


If the challenging player succeeds, they exchange places with their defeated opponent.  If the defending player succeeds, they earn the “Fight” token from the challenging player and can then challenge another player themselves! 


Again, the goal is to fight one’s way to the center spot of the leaderboard, and then once there, defend their position and earn three additional fight tokens.


** Minimum 400 point games


Star Wars Sale February 11 and 12

HeroClix Supremacy League #1 Starting Sunday


We received the kit for casual play HeroClix Supremacy League.
The League will run from Sunday, January 8, 2012 - Sunday, January 29.


How The League Works:
“Players on the outer rings of the Supremacy League leaderboard earn “Fight” tokens which they use to challenge a player on the next innermost ring,” he said.  “If the challenging player succeeds, they exchange places with their defeated opponent. If the defending player succeeds, they earn the ‘Fight’ token from the challenging player and can then challenge another player themselves!” 


To win, a player must fight his/her way to the center of the leaderboard and then defend the position and win three more fight tokens.  And once that process is complete, a winner is declared and a new Supremacy League can begin.
