I don't know what direction this line of Golden Age Heroes will take... but
I hope once everyone has "returned"... and things start to settle down a bit...
that some of these heroes will decide to band together as a group to fight evil and injustice.
Not everyone. Not even a big group of them.!! Maybe just three or four of the heroes decide to start an "Alliance" to fight injustice again.
Then, ...maybe after a few adventures,... someone else joins the team... (the "Alliance for Justice" or whatever they decide to call themselves)...and the team slowly builds to seven or eight members.
And maybe, farther down the road,... another team establishes itself.
During this time, some of the heroes will have their own books... their own friends to team-up with, (by some of the Golden Age covers, some of these heroes may already be "old friends". Remember the covers of The Big 3!!?? Maybe The Flame, Samson, and the Scarab know each other and have had adventures together.
We, as fans, by looking at America's Best Comic covers know that Black Terror teamed up with Pyroman, Doc Savage, Fighting Yank, and Miss Masque(Masquerade)!! So, we can kindof expect that they, too, are old friends.
It may be fun to tell some Golden Age stories based on some of those covers...to build those friendships ---for the readers of today's comics. I think it would be a mistake to ignore those covers and those relationships between the heroes. We all know, "There's no friends like old friends"!! Friendships and loyalties run deep.).... and other heroes that they don't get along with.
Isn't that some of the fun of having the heroes meet.!?? Which ones will get along and be friends... and which ones won't.!??
I hope TheBlack Terror does know Pyroman, Fighting Yank, and Masquerade but may not be as familiar with some of the other heroes.(from other comic book lines.)
And I would hope that The Scarab(Blue Beetle??), Samson, and the Flame know each other better than they know the "America's Best" heroes. Maybe some of these guys have heard about ... but never personally met... some of the others. And those that know each other, re-acquaint with each other.
To me, this is an important aspect to trying to give some kind of depth to the relationships of these heroes. Building as much "truth" into their "existence" as possible. This "relational" aspect just adds to their Golden Age existence. And, I hope,-- getting to know each other, for them, is a process... and not just a "slamming" together of ALL these heroes from different "companies."
Great EPIC STORY-TELLING needs to be carefully done. This is an important time of unraveling this story... in a thoughtful way.
This could be a really fun line of comicbooks. I hope Nick hires some very talented writers and artists... and editors ...who know where they're going... to chart the course of this Dynamite Line of Super-Heroes!!
With this line-up of characters,... input by Alex Ross...and Jim Krueger... the vision of Nick B.--- and this line could challenge larger companies for "rack" space and be successful!!
What do you think??? About the Teams...the characters knowing some of their fellow heroes better than others....or anything I've said??!!
