  • July Reboot

    There looks to be a reboot in the works. They mentioned a July date and Triple D, Green Lama, Masquerade and Scarab being involved. It's suppose to get back the concept of the original series. Finger crossed, but I'm not holding my breath.

    PRIL 05, 2018 11:22am PT by Graeme McMillan Golden Age Superhero Property 'Project Superpowers' Gets Revival

    Courtesy of Francesco Mattina/Dynamite EntertainmentDC's 'Suicide Squad' writer Rob Williams is the man behind the relaunch from Dynamite Entertainment.The future of the planet depends on the superheroes of the past ó thatís the high concept behind Dynamite Entertainmentís upcoming revival of its Project Superpowers series, which features classic superheroes from the World War II era brought into the present day.

    The new series, which launches with a 10-cent special issue, comes from writer Rob Williams (DCís Suicide Squad and Unfollow, as well as 2000 ADís Judge Dredd) and artist Sergio Davila (DCís Injustice), and sees a return to concepts established 10 years ago by artist Alex Ross and writer Jim Krueger in Dynamiteís original Project Superpowers series; most recently, the title was used for an alternate-world take by writer Warren Ellis in 2015.

    ďIn our new #0 youíll see weíre introducing the new world via The (Death Defying) Devil and Green Lama,Ē Williams explained in a statement from the publisher. ďWeíll flash back to introduce new readers to the teamís World War II origins and how they were brought to the present via imprisonment in Pandoraís box. And then itís introducing a brand-new threat. One not so rooted in their history. The main players, which include The Black Terror, The Scarab, Masquerade, are going to have to form a new incarnation of the team. And The Spirit of the American Flag is hovering, watching, judging. Ö A new host is going to be taken.Ē

    What makes Project Superpowers particularly interesting is that the characters arenít contemporary creations aping period styles; heroes like the Green Lama, Black Terror and Masquerade were originally created in the 1940s by a number of different publishers, including Fox Comics and Nedor Comics, and currently exist in the public domain.

    The first incarnation of Project Superpowers lasted two core series, as well as a number of individual miniseries spotlighting individual characters. The concept was later resurrected by Ellis in 2015, and most recently by Ryan Browne and Pete Woods last year, both of which used the characters outside of the framework created in the original series.

    The new Project Superpowers series will begin in July.

      Cover looks to reuse two of Ross's original character sketches with a new Triple D front piece. It does look to be interesting.
