Scott Snyder reveals the Legion of Doom lineup for "Justice League"
It's been teased and hinted at for months, and now it's official: the Legion of Doom are coming to the DC Universe.
In an exclusive interview with Comic Book Resources, Scott Snyder has revealed his incredibly ambitious plans for Justice League, including but not limited to the roster for the fan-favorite team of villains. Consisting of Lex Luthor, the Joker, Cheetah, Gorilla Grodd, Black Manta, and Sinestro, the Legion are sure to be a thorn in the side of the Justice League when Snyder and artists Jim Cheung and Jorge Jimenez relaunch the title in June.
If you've been keeping up with the likes of Dark Nights: Metal and No Justice, it's no secret that the formation of the Legion has been in the works for a while. After all, it's surely not by accident that the Hall of Doom itself made an appearance back in Metal #2. It's pretty exciting stuff, and even moreso if we get some narration that says "MEANWHILE, AT THE HALL OF JUSTICE" at least six times each issue. Seven, if we're lucky.
Head on over to CBR for more details, including a great interview with Snyder and a first look at some covers from Jimenez and Doug Mahnke. IGN also have an exclusive look at the amazing new Justice League logo, and Den of Geek take a gander at how the title will impact the rest of the DC Universe. Justice League #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on June 6.
