If you don’t read USA Today (hey, I can’t blame you), then you missed out on some of the big stories coming in the DCnU in 2012. Want more stories from Earth 2? DC has you covered.

We know that James Robinson and Nicola Scott are bringing back the Justice Society, but now it looks like Power Girl and Huntress are getting their own title in May 2012 called World’s Finest. The series will be written by Paul Levitz with George Perez and Kevin Maquire rotating on the art duties.

“What does that mean to be exiles from that Earth 2?” [Bob] Harras says. “We thought it’d be a nice thing to bring this concept back and to really, as we did with the 52 initially, reconceive it and freshen it up.”

I really like that DC is finally getting around to doing something with their 52 Earths that were brought back following the 52 series.  Seems like there are a lot of opportunities (i.e. Ultimate DC) to have both new and old continuity characters playing for fans.

So does this mean DC is expanding their New 52? Not quite, six new books are coming, which means six will be ending with issue eight. The titles are Men of War, Mister Terrific, O.M.A.C., Hawk and Dove, Blackhawks, and Static Shock. Bob Harras did tell USA Today that just because the series are ending, doesn’t mean the characters are gone.

      FYI – that image is from JSA Classified from a few years ago, and is not related to this new relaunch. I just like this image of Huntress and Power Girl drawn by Amanda Conner

        if only the new line HAD Amanda Connor…

        Still, glad to see PG back. Wonder how this will play in to the new DCU since Karen Starr is a non-powered character in Mister Terrific…

          Well, they said PG would be from Earth 2, meaning not the same person as the Karen Starr dating Mr Terrific. Now if only Terra could be added to the title…

    I’m really disappointed that they are cancelling Mister Terrific… :(

      Indeed it is sad. I haven’t read the Mister Terrific book after issue one, but I’ve heard good things.

      Still, how much you wanna bet he’ll be making his fair share of appearances in the Justice Society book? *Wink Wink*

      I second this. We should make a petition to get back the series.

      Another petition for OMAC would be nice too.

    But I thought “The New 52~!” (I dare somebody to count the current number of titles, btw. My guess is around 60, but that’s merely a guess.) was supposed to streamline the whole “multiple earths/universes” thing? And I thought it was supposed to reduce the number of…… Ah, forget it. I see it now for what it really was: New #1s. These? More #1s!!!! YAY SPECULATORS!

      P.S.: Now taking bets on how long before “World’s Finest” turns into Superman/Batman — the way it used to be Way Back When. I’m going to take “six issues” in the pool.
