Wildstorm Watch: Two More Names Joining the DCU This May.
by Grey Scherl on February 13, 2012

It seems like this happens every month now, but DC dropped their solicits for May today, and we’re seeing two more Wildstorm characters preparing to debut!

First on the table, the third WildC.A.T. in the new DCU, Warblade is primed to debut in Superboy #9.

SUPERBOY #9

Cover by IAN CHURCHILL
On sale MAY 9 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
• “THE CULLING” continues here from this month’s TEEN TITANS ANNUAL #1 and leading into LEGION LOST #9!
• SUPERBOY vs. ROSE WILSON – round two!
• The shocking debut of the all-new WARBLADE!

 

So far so good, right? It could be a new design on the old favorite, or a new character with the name altogether. As it stands though he’s got the same color scheme, and The Culling already is going to be bringing us Grunge from Gen 13, so why not add another Wildstorm alumni?

As for the second book to do this, let’s go to a Wildstorm original with Grifter #9.

GRIFTER #9
Written by ROB LIEFELD and FRANK TIERI

Cover by ROB LIEFELD
On sale MAY 9 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
• Welcoming the new creative team of ROB LIEFELD, FRANK TIERI and SCOTT CLARK
• Grifter’s troubles worsen as he races to stop the impending DAEMONITE invasion.
• Featuring the first appearances of DEATHBLOW and CHESHIRE in The New 52!

 

Cheshire may be a slightly old school DC character, but Deathblow is one of the original characters out of Image. He’s also, like Grifter, a veteran of Team 7 and Gen 12. He’s a perfect inclusion for a teamup with Cole. Now we just have to hope he stays alive this time!
