Darkseid stands triumphant again. On the cusp of rewriting reality and controlling the destiny of the universe, the Lord of Apokolips must face one final challenge: Vic Stone, Cyborg. If the half-man/half-machine Titan can overcome Darkseid’s programming, he may be the Justice League’s only chance at stopping the dark god’s power grab on the edge of the universe.
DC‘s Dark Nights: Death Metal has been hinted at changes for the DC line once the event wraps up and we may be seeing the likely steps for whatever launches after with numerous titles ending in November.
Already announced ending in October are Batgirl, Batman and the Outsiders, and Justice League Odyssey. In November Teen Titans, Young Justice, Suicide Squad, Hawkman, and John Constantine: Hellblazer will all end. A few other mini-series will end as well. Teen Titans is the longest-running of the bunch while Suicide Squad had only recently seen a relaunch. I’d also expect a merging of Young Justice and Teen Titans into a new series down the line as well based on some recent issues and what has been said within.
Aquaman will see writer Kelly Sue DeConnick wrap up her run on the series with Aquaman #65 but the series will not be ending.
The decision to end these titles is not related to recent shakeups at the publisher as these decisions are usually made well in advance of solicitations. Further, whatever DC’s focus in the future, most likely digital and original graphic novels, is still being laid out and worked on and we won’t see the fruit from that labor for many more months.
What is likely happening is the shift to whatever is launching after Dark Nights: Death Metal ends. The event has DC’s superheroes dealing with their latest “crisis” and now in all three issues statement about recreating the multiverse have been made. It’s likely numerous new titles will spin out of the event when it wraps up in January(ish).
We won’t likely know exactly what that is though for a few more months and plans can change quickly.
