I've come a long way on Moviepilot since my last comic book reboot article. That was my Marvel comics reboot. I've never seen a DC reboot idea though. In my Marvel one, I set it in Earth-212. I'm setting my DC one in the same universe, so a crossover could happen. Like Marvel, I'll have these guys modeled after their cinematic/TV actors. My comic line here will consist of DCU, video games, animated movies, a little bit of New 52, but mostly fresh ideas. I'll share some ideas that I have. Not as concrete yet though. Let's get started!
1. Green Arrow
I love that show! I will have some tweaks, but I want his attitude and the life Stephen Amell brought it him in these comics. Costume will be different, I'll take the whites off of his mask. His five years away from Starling City will remain the same, but his missions as the Arrow will be different. He'll still be referred to as Arrow. Comic books can achieve certain things with more success than TV can so we'll see him in the Justice League. I want to really change things here like I did with Marvel. He'll know Batman before the Justice League forms. We'll see a Batman team up or two, but not much else. The Batman/Superman duo is the Arrow/Flash duo lol. I'm not so sure I want to keep Ollie as Bary's mentor for the comics though. That's what makes the shows great, and I wanna let that be that. I'm thinking Bary will get his start not too long after Oliver returns. All the meta humans of DC will be coming into the picture at about the same time. I don't want the jokey, Justice League reject, Oliver Queen for this universe. I'm debating on rather or not to have him be a founding member of the Justice League. I really want to hear your thoughts about that idea in the comments.
I love The Flash TV show too! I'll have him resemble Grant Gustin's Flash in this universe and really bring that to these comics. His costume will look pretty much the same. Some things will be altered. I love these shows very much, but I also want to make sure that you're not seeing the show in comics. The Flash will be a founding Justice League member as he's always been. I don't really want Oliver as his mentor though. Like I said, that makes the show unique. I'm thinking, they'll team up and help each other out every now and then. They'll be maybe a year apart in terms of becoming heroes. Batman and Superman will be the same way. Nothing much will change about Flash. If memory serves, he is faster than Superman. That'll be a fun part like who is stronger between Hulk and Thor. Just a constant competition.
Nothing to really change about Batman. I mean, I'll have him and Green Arrow fight in one of their crossovers. For this universe, Batman will be young when he joins the Justice League. He'll be with the League then do his thing in Gotham just like in JLU. If anything, we'll see more of that Batman. He will resemble Ben Affleck too. Don't worry I'm not leaving the Robins out of this. I'll have some special issues with: Jason Todd (Red Hood), Dick Grayson (Nightwing), Barbra Gordon (Batgirl), Tim Drake (Robin), Carrie Kelly (Robin) and last but not least Damian Wayne (Robin). Tim and Barbra will have a relationship. Well, I'm iffy about Carrie. She's the least popular of the Robins. Comment what you think.
Superman will resemble Henry Cavill. He will be with Lois Lane and not Wonder Woman in this universe. Not much to change about him either. When he becomes Superman that's will be not too long after Arrow and Batman.
5. Justice League
I'll have my own founding team. I've decided that Arrow will be a founding member. I'm not sure what I'll have the reason be for the Justice League to form. I just know that Batman and Superman will arrive and start fighting the enemies gathered. Arrow and Flash are right there with them. So the four of them are fighting off an attack.
Wonder Woman is seeing this and leaves Themyscira to save man's world. Wonder Woman joins the battle. Hal Jordan will look like Chris Pine in this universe. He will be on Oa and is granted permission by the Guardians to protect his planet. He'll join the battle too.
I've decided to make Cyborg the seventh member. His origin will be similar to that of Justice League War. I don't just want a cool hero to pop out of nowhere though. After the Justice League forms, I want them to help him along. For this universe, Victor Stone is a senior is about to have a full ride football scholarship. He has it made, but loses everything in the accident. Him being so young and distressed, I'm having the league help him get through it. Sure he can do his mission and save the world, but his internal conflict and anger about losing his normal life will get to him. Everyone else chose to become heroes, he didn't.
I will add more onto this every now and then. I just don't want my ideas getting mixed up. Meaning my DCCU ones and DC-212 ones.
