The four-issue event series Justice League: No Justice is expected to relaunch the titular team as DC Comics biggest franchise. This will lead to multiple new Justice League series written by some of the industry's top talent, but what does it mean for the DCU's other superhero teams?
Well, it may mean they're all going away.
DC Comics seems to be in a holding pattern in the month of May while it waits for No Justice to tell its tale and Brian Michael Bendis to take over the Superman titles. As a result, DC's solicitations for the month are missing several key books. Justice League and Justice League of America are gone, like we knew would happen. Superman and Action Comics are off the board as well, having been replaced by a pair of oversized specials. Supergirl is completely missing, and almost every team book the publisher is currently publishing is M.I.A. as well.
Titans and Teen Titans are among the missing series, and while It's possible these two titles are taking a break for No Justice before returning in June, given the fact that both books complete storylines in April, the writing seems to be on the wall. Titans has even been dealing with the team being disbanded by the Justice League, so it's not like things are going well for them even before all of this upheaval. The fact that none of their members will be included in the four teams of No Justice also speak volumes as to their potential fate.
The most recent solicits have also revealed that Batgirl and the Birds of Prey has been cancelled with issue #22, and Super Sons is going away too at #16. Considering Trinity is already coming to an end in April, and even the team in Detective Comics is breaking up, the publisher's only remaining Rebirth-era team books will be the newly rebranded New Super-Man and the Justice League of China and Suicide Squad. What does this mean for the future of the DC Universe?
