The team is finally coming back in 2018, with a cast of familiar and new heroes serving as the Justice League’s covert ops team. At the San Diego Comic Con, Young Justice: Outsiders was officially shown off. Take a gander for yourself

One day, I’ll have a date (A REAL ONE DAMMIT) and I’ll be all like “Yeah I make six figures a year” and she’ll be so impressed until she realises that I mean action figures. No regrets.

DC is dipping back into its collectibles for another new series, this time based on the Gotham City Garage inaction figures. Here’s the lowdown on this crazy tale: Lex Luthor is in charge of Gotham City, thanks to a project that saw the City renamed to “The Garden”.

A job that the Gotham City Garage is ready to accept.
Up next in the Earth one universe? The original man without fear, Green Lantern. This time, the space-cop of Sector 2814 will star in a story with a twist: All of the Green Lanterns are dead by the hands of the Manhunters, and it’s up to Hal to fight back and reform the corps while balancing his life as an astronaut for Ferris Galactic.
