When Dan DiDio said that the Justice Society of America was going to sit out for a while, many probably thought that meant a year or two. We’ve learned that at Fan Expo Canada, it was confirmed by DC that the JSA would indeed return and they will bring with them one of the biggest bits of comic book history – the Multiverse.
According to reports, The JSA will be from Earth-2, thus keeping their adventures in line with the relaunched DC 52 that debuts this week. Best of all, James Robinson and Nicola Scott will head up the project.
While I fell out of reading the JSA on a regular basis, the actual return of the Multiverse and setting stories in those worlds has me interested. Ever since the Multiverse was reintroduced during 52, I was hoping they would examine those stories sooner rather than later. By actually setting the Golden Age heroes on Earth-2 it gives me a bit more hope that we might see other Earths appear before too long, and it might just put the current relaunch into perspective.
Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing the JSA stories set during World War II, but from the teaser art that is making its way around the Internet, it looks like we are going to get more of the same stories set in present time. And because the stories are taking place on Earth-2 the rumors of Alan Scott’s death appear to be greatly exaggerated.
