ISN'T IT! ah then my mistake, eerrrmm, i don't really see john as a member of the JSA at all, i don't know why but i just don't think he suits the team.

When does JSA come out. If the new #1 comes out after 52's end, then it's possible. But I think it comes out way before 52's end, and thus like all main characters in 52 he is unavailable for current titles.


My current theory for John is that he will have something to do with the Metal Men. Like he'll be a new member (the only human) or something bad will happen to Magnus in 52 and John will take over.

I don't think so seeing as JSA will be released before 52 concludes. I actually like the idea of him joining the team, though.

obviously no. and it may not be the final cover but I'll guarantee he won't be on the team. there already is a steel, whom is obviously on the cover.

Here's a compromise:

They can start calling John Henry Irons Black Steel, then, if he gets a new title, the first arc can be called "In The Hour of Chaos" (points to anyone who gets the reference).

Justice Society of America #1 comes out in December. We'll still be hip deep in 52 at that point.

Not only do I not think Irons will be the Steel in JSofA, if he did I think all the Hank Heywood fans that have popped up since that cover was released would riot.

I don't think it will be John either. With so many crazy changes going on I think the the JSA Steel will be another ethnic character.
 
Bette Kane is Flamebird.....except no substitutes! Of course, if they call her Bat-Girl, then that's okay. :)

as jay1dubbs already pointed out -- this guy is called "commander" steel and not just steel like Henry Irons -- two different identities.

John Henry really isn't a legacy character...and I think I remember Geoff Johns say that the new Commander Steel is a new character.
