I've just read Jeff Lemire's blog saying that he will cancel his Animal Man title in March with issue #29. This is going to be bittersweet since Animal Man helped start the New 52. Jeff will continue to write Buddy in the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF CANADA!!! That's right, Animal Man will be a part of the team which is located in Ontario.
To recap: the roster so far is Adam Strange, a teenage superheroine based on the late Shannen Koostachin, Hawkman, Green Arrow, and Animal Man. Mike McKone will do the artwork for the comic. Hawkman and Green Arrow will be joined by one of their JLA teammates (my bet is either Martian Manhunter or the Simon Baz Green Lantern). And the first issue will be released in April.
Here's my prediction for the final line-up, beginning with confirmed members:
The girl based on Shannen Koostachin
Green Lantern (Simon Baz) (I'd prefer both on the team)
Atom (either Palmer or Choi)
Black Canary (in place of Katana)
Centrix (from the Global Guardians)
If there is anything else you'd like to add, feel free to tell me.
Lemire has also said he was bringing in someone from Frankenstein: Agent of SHADE. My assumption was that it HAD to be Ray Palmer, but perhaps it's Frankenstein himself... Lemire used him in Animal Man after all.
