A couple weeks ago, DC Comics announced that the heroes known as the Justice League would be taking a trip to the future! Written by superstar team, Keith Giffen and JM DeMatteis, Justice League 3ooo would be replacing DC‘s current future titles, anything to do with the Legion of Superheroes. Too bad, at least one of those titles should have survived. So its up to the A-Team to bring the pain to the future of villainy! ComicVine caught up with the two and got some answers! Here’s an excerpt from the interview with what we are looking for!
Comic Vine: Does this title fit into the Legion of Super-Heroes timeline?
J.M. DeMatteis: Legion of Super-Heroes? That name’s familiar, but I can’t quite place it…
Keith Giffen: Only in that it takes place in the 31st century. This is not a Legion book.
Comic Vine: The choice to go with future renditions of the current Justice League makes sense but will we also see versions of other character not necessarily tied to the JL?
Keith Giffen: I mean, never say never but I’d really like to get JL3000 up and running on its own before ringing in alternate versions ofHawkman or the Atom or whoever. That said, I did pirate the name “Fatal Five” so…
J.M. DeMatteis: One of the great things here is that we’re in a future universe that’s not bogged down in continuity; so we’re free to create and expand in as many directions as we’d like. We can build an entire universe of new, and old, characters. No limits.
