Just like the girl in the above panel from SWAMP THING, the New DC Universe is beginning to BRANCH OUT (haw haw) and get ENTANGLED (hee hee) in the vines of….continuity and crossovers! This according to hints and forebodings from EIC Bob Harras:
Scott and Jeff certainly aren’t the only creators exchanging ideas and cross-pollinating series. Another Scott-Lobdell, this time–and Fabian Nicieza are working on a storyline that will flow between TEEN TITANS, SUPERBOY and LEGION LOST. It explores everything from the mystery of Project N.O.W.H.E.R.E, the organization that developed Superboy as the ultimate weapon, to the tragedy of the mysterious Hypertaxis virus brought to our century from the future by the time-lost Legionnaires, to how both impact our newly formed group of young heroes.
And over in the BATMAN titles, the aforementioned and prolific Mr. Scott Snyder has crafted a tale involving the Court of Owls and its deadly Talon assassins that may soon impact the storylines in NIGHTWING, BATGIRL, BIRDS OF PREY and even RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS.
Thus, it begins. Whatch’all think? You ready for some X-overs?
And where has pink hood lady been lately, anyway? Hopefully it will be a while before that one pays off.
