NYCC 2009: DC Universe Panel

Welcome to CBR's live coverage of DC Comics' DC Universe panel at New York Comic Con with panelists Geoff Johns, Sterling Gates, Philip Tan, Dan Jurgens, Sean McKeever, James Robinson, Keith Giffen, Peter Tomasi, Mike Carlin, Ian Sattler and Dan DiDio.

Keith Giffen revealed that he will be bringing back the Doom Patrol. "Way too much pressure," he said. Giffen asked the crowd if they liked Morrison's run on the series. After a loud applause, Giffen remarked, "You're going to be really disappointed."

Giffen said the mission with "Doom Patrol" is to make the series "accessible" to fans of the DC Universe.

Giffen then asked why DiDio disliked the Justice League International, and DiDio denied any such feeling. JLI artist Kevin Maguire then took the stage to announce he would be drawing a 10-page Metal Men backup series in Giffen's "Doom Patrol."

Geoff Johns then discussed "The Flash: Rebirth," which comes out on April 1, confirming that Bart Allen is back and will play a big part in the book.

As for the Teen Titans, Sean McKeever said the team is going through a membership drive that will eventually see a team of eight members. April's "Teen Titans Annual" will see Jericho try to "out-Deathstroke Deathstroke."

Fan questions:

- What does the future hold for the Terror Titans? They will be in "Teen Titans."

- Will there be another Robin after Tim Drake? Yes.

- Will Static Shock appear outside Teen Titans? If he catches on.

    "You're going to be really disappointed."

    --Nuff said.

    But you know what? I've done my Didio bashing. Here's my question for the fans. And that question is, "When are you going to stop buying this garbage?"

    Because it won't stop until you refuse to pay for it.

    Okay, okay...
    1) I'm DEFINATELY gonna read Doom Patrol by Giffen and Clarke. That just feels like a good fit for the book

    2) I wanna hug Johns for bringing Bart back!

    3) Robin AFTER Tim Drake? Hmmm...Steph? Damian? Those are the only two I can think of. Though I prefer Tim, let's see where this story goes...

    Oh, and 4) "if (static) catched on..." HAHAHA! IF! C'mon! He's Static! Ofcourse he will.
