I kind of figured, GC ... thanks for confirming though :) Kinda sucks on the Wildstorm front ... especially since many of them are becoming mainstream in the New52 ...

One of the first questions I asked Jon, back when the two volumes + the universe book were still being sorted out assignment-wise, "What about the THUNDER Agents or the Red Circle stuff, since both are being folded into the DCU now?"

He broke my heart then as Greycrusader just broke yours now.

Stupid licensing hassles. :roll:

There was a DC comics villain team called the Crusaders that fought the original Freedom Fighters (not to be confused with the Crusaders that are not part of the DC stable) a long time ago.

While minor characters at best, if they even survived the multiple Crises, I thought it would be neat to have them profiled because they were near-duplicates of Marvel's Invaders! There was a bluish-green submariner (Barracuda), a Captain of Liberty (Americommando?)complete with a shield and a sidekick, Rusty, and two fiery fiends, one older and one still a juvenile. Fireball and Sparky, I believe. But, alas, I most likely won't see them in the Universe book. Or will I? :roll:

I was glad to hear that Jim Gordan will be statted out in the discussion of Gotham City. Similarly I'd like to see Dubbilex go with Cadmus and Solovar go with Gorilla City. I'd also like to see Lady Quark and Superboy Prime in the various Criseseses sections. Also Black Mask and Kilowog.

I missed the post saying Wild Storm was unlikely due to licensing...that stinks :(

Nice list of characters, Puroresu!

Fury (Lyta) and Lady Quark are also on my wish list!

And, you reminded me that I forgot about the Force of July and Peoples' Heroes!

Tempest and Celsius are under "Doom Patrol." Psimon is under "The Fearsome Five." All this, plus Abra Kadabra, are in Heroes and Villains volume 1.

Sargon is almost certainly in Heroes and Villains volume 2.

The DC One Million Characters would be fun:)

I whole heartidly agree with seeing the Batman Beyond Crew.
Also, as a big fan of ring-slingers I could always use more of the well known ones done up from various other corps. Which brings up that I'd really like to see the Entities themselves written up. Even as PLX would be fine, but this mostly comes from when Carrol Ferris was using the Predator as her pet.

What I really want to see is various multiverese characters.
Earth-1 Superman and Batman (though that one and others are unlikely due to DC holding info on future storylines close to their chest. Just ask Wizkids with Heroclix)
Earth-11
Earth-30 Red Son Superman (just to see a Superman with an IQ higher than Lex)


Flashpoint style characters would be fun too.

You know what would rock? A concise timeline for the new 52, alas right now even DC is confused by their own timeline so just going to rely on my own for games.

I would like to see a section on alternate "tragic fates" for Thomas and Martha Wayne. And I'm not talking about the Flashpoint nonsense where Bruce Wayne dies.
