San Diego Comic Con 2012 is clicking on day two! With Friday’s Justice League / Green Lantern panel, Earth 2 writer James Robinson reveals some interesting tidbits. My fave? Well not only do we get Neil Gaiman back on Sandman (Morpheus), we also get a Sandman on Earth 2 (Wesley Dodds)! Sweet. Check out the teases below.
Earth 2 #0 has the Superman-Batman-Wonder Woman trinity, as well as a red-armored fourth hero with a gun: Terry Sloane. Robinson says there were actually eight major heroes, or “wonders,” as they called him. Robinson says that Sloane is a villain now, but he has noble reasons.
Meanwhile, we’ll see Alan Scott versus Solomon Grundy, in what is now a six-part story as opposed to five. “He’s basically going to become the Superman of Earth 2,” Robinson said.
We’ll also meet Wesley Dodds, the Sandman, a Canadian superhero who works with the World Army. The Army is led by new character Amir Khan, who Robinson describes as “Captain Nemo meets Nick Fury.”
So, DC Comics FINALLY gets a Canadian hero… but on a parrallel Earth. 😉
Earth 2 is just clicking and I am enjoying it.
