Recently DC Comics announced their New 52 first year anniversary plans including four new series with pretty dynamic “zero issue” covers. That includes a relaunch of Wildstorm classic “Team 7” now “Team Seven” by Image darling writer Justin Jordan of Luther Strode fame and recent Superman artist Jesús Merino.
However, the two not-so-self-evident characters on the upper right part of the Team Seven #0 cover includes one African American and one caucasian. So, which Wildstorm icon has had their ethinicity change in the New 52? Or does the cover no represent the final line-up? Could the African American be Peabody, Slade Wilson weaponeer introduced by writer Kyle Higgins in the Deathstroke series?
This follows speculation that a classic Justice Society iconic founder may actually be African American now in the James Robinson penned and Nicola Scott penciled series Earth Two. Interesting that the media focus has been on the extreme right and extreme left tug of war over a Green Lantern’s homosexuality and this ethnicity speculation has largely gone unreported about Earth 2 #2.
