So, among all of the debate regarding Ben Affleck playing Batman, this little tidbit snuck out of FanExpo Toronto -- Justice League of America is ending in the Spring of next year, and will be replaced by the Jeff Lemire written Justice League of Canada.
Uh... huh. It's right here on Newsarama.
No word on what will be happening with the existing cast, so I don't know if Hawkman will be sticking around north of the border or not. I can say that without a shirt on, he might get a little cold, since it is unclear if the Nth Metal would still keep him warm like it did pre-New 52.
More intriguing is the announcement of the return of one of Hawkman's traditional allies, making his debut in the New 52...
Granted, they are creating at least one brand new Canadian hero for the series, as well as bringing one lost hero into the New 52 for the first time - now as a Canadian - Adam Strange.
Adam Strange! Now that I can get behind! Making him Canadian is no big deal in my book -- we all know that Adam's "real" home is Rann, so swapping his nationality is not a big deal to me. I am just happy to see him make a come back. Under Lemire, I imagine that the space hero will get a chance to shine, as he seems to have a knack for tertiary characters as we have seen in Justice League Dark.
So what do you think of this news? Intrigued, baffled, or maybe a little of both?
