Mark Sable Says, "Get Ready For Cyborg!"

Mark Sable has posted some interesting thoughts on his upcoming Cyborg mini-series on his blog:

"The idea for my Cyborg run came by asking a more pointed question. In a world where Vic stone can lose his limbs and have them replaced by cybernetic weaponry, why don’t ordinary humans, particularly soldiers in this time of war, have access to Vic’s technology?

If I asked these questions, then certainly they must have occurred to greatest fictional minds in the DC universe…and possibly the more devious ones. Without giving too much away, Cyborg series is about what happens when someone uses Vic’s technology in a way that anathema to who he is and what he stands for.

Wow, that sounds deep. No, really. But I want to see him punch things.

Don’t worry, he punches lots of things. Fan favorite supervillains. “The Phantom Limbs”…an all new characters I’ve created who share Cyborg’s technology and may or may not be on Vic’s side. And not one, but TWO groups of teen Titans.

Oh yeah, and he also punches himself. Chew on that one for a while."

Read all Mark's thoughts here. This mini sounds quite intriguing!

Titans News from WWLA

Newsarama Reports Titans news from WWLA:

-- Are there any plans to cross over Justice League and Teen Titans? "I spoke to the editor of Teen Titans, no plans for that now," said DiDio. (DiDio is the editor of Teen Titans). "My goal for Teen Titans is that we have a lot of original characters right now, and I like giving them an opportunity to shine in their own right before we throw everybody into a big pot again," he added.

-- A fan asked about the upcoming Judd Winick/Ian Churchill Titans title, and DiDio equated it to the show Friends, and how it's about the relationship and friendship between the characters.

Future plans for the Cassandra Cain Batgirl? Beechen said he's doing a mini-series that'll explain the character's recent behavior. DIDio said they're not ready to announce the artist yet.

Hypothetically speaking, could Nightwing become Batman?" asked DiDio. "He could, but he shouldn't," seemed to be the consensus among the vocal fans. Van Sciver added that he thought Dick Grayson will eventually become Batman, but we'll never see it. Another said he "wasn't crazy enough," which led to DiDio asking just who is crazy enough - "Huntress," said one. DiDio asked "How about Jason Todd?" which the crowd didn't seem to like, because he "doesn't have the spirit of Batman," said one.

-- "Will be seeing Superboy or Bart Allen?" The panel played dumb and neglected to answer.

Amanda Conner Reveals Terra Mini-Series Status

Newsarama's MegaCon report, Amanda Conner reveals the status of the long-awaited
Terra mini-series, featuring the all-new black haired geomorph. The mini also promises to reveal the origin of "all the Terras", whatever that means....

"Amanda Conner, who readily admitted that MegaCon is one of her favorite comic conventions, was easily found right next to Jimmy Palmiotti, doing sketches for lots of happy fans. Right now, she is finishing up the Terra mini-series. Three issues are currently complete (copies of the pages being available at her table for view, and all from what fans were seeing, this book is going to definitely be the one to watch for!), and she is hard at work on the fourth issue. And despite how much she would love to reveal what the “secret project” is that she and Jimmy Palmiotti are working on, mum is the word for now."

Jamal Igle Interview

Torre Titã interviews Titans pinch-hitter artist Jamal Igle: "The North American artist, Jamal Igle, exclusively gave us an interview about his work and as he gave up the actor career to become a great comic artist. Currently, Jamal works exclusively for the DC Comics. Enjoy!"

Damion Scott on Raven

The Pulse reports: Raven is getting the chance to experience some of the things she never did when she was originally growing up, like highschool, friends and the trials and tribulations of fitting in. In her new life as Rachel Roth, Raven is going through the paces thanks to co-creator Marv Wolfman and artist Damion Scott.

THE PULSE: When working on a character like Raven, it's not hard to think you might be influenced by the artist who first drew her and co-created her, George Perez, but what other artists are influencing how you regard this character and how she should look on the printed page?

I looked at some of the George Perez work, just to get down the classic nature of the character. Aside from that, I'm just doing my own thing. Teen Titans has become popular due to the cartoon. So I wanted to create a style that was a three way bridge between the cartoon, the classic look, and my own style.

THE PULSE: What is it about Raven that you find the most intriguing as an artist?

The spirit aspect. She's an ethereal character -- ghostly, mystic. I have a personal fascination with the spirit world, so it was easy to get in to.

Talking Raven With Marv Wolfman

Newsarama reports: Crisis on Infinite Earths. Dracula. New Teen Titans. And that’s just three. Obviously, we’re talking Marv Wolfman. The veteran writer and creator had a high-profile release hit comic shops this week with the first issue of DC Special: Raven #1, a new mini-series featuring the fan favorite character he and George Perez created for the New Teen Titans. What brings Wolfman back now, and does this book have any larger ramifications? Well, we asked.

Newsarma: You co-created Raven nearly 30 years ago. What's it like to come back to the character now?

Marv Wolfman: In point of fact I wrote several Raven pieces in the past including one for the 9-11 tribute book DC did to raise money for the victim's families. I love the Raven character and had proposed several ideas over the years. Finally, DC came to me about doing a mini-series and I jumped at the chance. I love the character; think she's the strongest one of the characters George and I created for NTT who could sustain their own series.

Mark Sable On DC Special: Cyborg

Mark Sable speaks to Newsarama about Cyborg: The six issue miniseries DC Special: Cyborg
debuts on May 21st, and promises to get underneath the skin (and metal) to find out what makes Cyborg tick. Written by Mark Sable with artwork by Ken Lashley and Jonathan Glapion, the mini promises to look into secrets from Vic Stone’s past that effect him to this day. Dubbed “the greatest Teen Titan of them all” in DC advertisements, what better time than now to find out more?

NRAMA: Cyborg can't be the only familiar face we'll see in the series; who else can we look forward to seeing?

MS: From his private life, S.T.A.R. Dr. Sarah Charles and her fiancée, Vic's friend Sarah Simms, who teaches physically disabled children, and a character once thought dead who he has some unresolved issues with. From the DCU, a villain who's tangled with the Top Guns of the DCU, and the squad of metas he's assembled to take Vic down. There's a team, called "The Phantom Limbs", and whether they're good, bad or something in between is for Vic and the readers to decide.

And there's Titans. Lots and lots of Titans.

NRAMA: For those who haven't kept up with who Vic Stone is, can you tell us about him?

MS: He's a human being who was fascinating even before he became a superhero, one of the most three dimensional African-American characters in comics. He was a lonely, sheltered kid, torn between his upper middle class family (think The Cosbys with a mad scientist for a dad)and the comaraderie of his gangbanging friends (think The Wire).

Vic was not only an Olympic level athlete, he was, as he's said himself, a "human computer", born with a genius IQ. He was and is someone always very much aware of how others perceive him, and constantly trying to escape a stereotypical label, whether it's a home-schooled nerd, a jock who hasn't lived up to his potential, or any number of assumptions people make because of race.

If this wasn't enough, as result of an accident (or was it?) - he had Molybdenum steel grafted to his body and was given cybernetic limbs by his father. This isn't the Six Million dollar man we're talking about, his limbs are interchangeable weapons, the capabilities of which we've yet to fully see in 20 plus years. He was the first Transformer, if you will. But what many might view as a gift, he viewed (and to some extent still views) as a curse.
