NYCC: New 52 Panel

The new 52 is over a year old. For the past few months, critics have started to say that the new 52 has become stale. However, DC  wants to put a stop to these beliefs. Once again, DC plans to take the top spot in the war between the Big 3.

Here are their plans for the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013:

Attending the new 52 panel were: Bob Harris, Bobbie Chase, Eddie Berganza, Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Jeff Lemire, Moritat, Paul Levitz, Adam Glass, Josh Fialkov, Justin Jordan, Howard Mackie, Bernard Chang,Christy Marx, and Aaron Kuder.

Superman is being kicked out of his Fortress of Solitude by his new archenemies H'el.  To defeat H'el, Superman will be teaming up with the Justice League and an unknown character.

Here are our two guesses for the unknown character: Lex Luthor or General Zod.

The Fatal Five will be returning in the Legion of Superheroes.

In Earth 2, Steppenwolf makes his return along with the Earth's last amazon.

Jeff Lemire and Ray Fawkes will be co-writing Justice League Dark. They will be writing a story arc titled "The end of Magic". One major consequence of this arc: Their will be major changes in the team's roster. Frankenstein will be joining the team.

In All-Star Western, Jonah Hex travels to 2050 and he is teaming up with Adam Strange.

In Suicide Squad, the reader will learn more about King Shark and why he is on the team. Also, Deadshot is returning and he's in possession of Resurrection Man's hand.

In Team 7, Eclipso is making his first 52 appearance.

During the Q and A, DC hinted at ties between Anti-Life Equation and The Guardian's Third Army.

Are there Cassandra Cain, Stephanie Brown and Ted Kord fans reading this blog? If that is the case, we have good news. When the panel was asked about the three characters, the audience was given two answers. They were "never say never," and "keep reading the books."

Rotword: Both Man-Bat and Green Lantern will be making an appearance. However, it was teased that Man-Bat and Green Lantern are not the characters that we are expecting them to be.

Our guess on Man-Bat: Bruce Wayne or Dick Grayson.
