Default Justice League Canada???

I thought this was a joke at first...

DC Comics to launch Justice League Canada in 2014 by Jeff Lemire

In addition, Lemire says that he will be bringing back Adam Strange, a Silver Age DC character, a swashbuckling archaeologist who is transported to the far-off planet of Rann. In this new incarnation, he will also be Canadian.

I have a feeling Green Arrow will be migrating up to the Maple country as well.

Yeah I know, this is seeming like a comedy sketch, eh.

Actually it maybe better called Justice League Moosonee. Oh and the Nu Adam Strange is ..... wait for it .... a Canuck. Now it is time to await for the howls to start. But we should have guessed it - his uniform is a red and white motif.

I wonder who else will be members.

No issue with Strange being Canadian here, his being from Earth, being an archeologist, going to Rann probably all higher priorities than being from the US.

Didn't they try and retcon Booster as being Canadian in the DCnU?

Along with the announcement that Ben Affleck will portray Batman in the Man of Steel sequel, this is par for the course for DC & Warner Brothers.

Heh. I imagine the guys over at Marvel are giggling and popping open the champagne.

Really?

Really?

OK, I love Lemire's DC work to bits. His contributions to The Trinity War are hard to miss, and he's made Green Arrow and Animal Man must-reads. But this sounds more than a bit bizarre. I have to wonder how this came about.

I guess this also means Johns is off JLA (JLC) already. But having Lemire and DeMatteis on the secondary JL books is not a bad thing.

No disrespect to Canada, but this seems like an attempt to recreate the "Bwah-hah-hah!" League in all its glory. I feel like the surprise return of Ted Kord is imminent. Guess that means that poor Jaimie will be shot through the head or eaten by some alien predator before too long.

The most telling line of the interview:

Lemire twice promised the Star that this wasn't a joke, although he admits that he didn't think Dan Didio was serious when he came up with the idea.

That explains everything!

One thing's for sure, you just know Marvel is about to blow off the dust and crank up another volume of Alpha Flight any minute.

I'm okay with everything except the chance that it will just be a joke book. When Marvel tried to a humor Alpha Flight, it only made it 4 issues.

I'm seeing a number of posters in various forums and mbs wondering if it's April Fools Day because of these 2 announcements.

But no, it's really August 23rd...

yep August 23rd!

And if we find out in about 2 hours that Dan Didio has deposed the world leadership and taken over the world we should not be surprised!

Aug 23 = 8/23 = 8 + 2 + 3 = 13 = 1 + 3 = 4
April 1 = 3/1 = 3 + 1 = 4

Numerology tells us there is a connection!

Lemire is not known for doing bwah-hah-hah in anyform, so I don't think that it will have that feel at all. Didn't Marvel do a "Canadian" Avengers type thing during the Cival War era.

Honestly, it is really about time that DC has a Canadian Character of note. Yes I know Wes Dodd in E2 is Canadian, as was Flying Fox back in the day with All Star Squadron and I think that there was a Global Guardian of somesort ... Perhaps the most fleshed out "Canadian" character was Plastque as used by Cary Bates in Capt. Atom. Like to know why it took DC over 30 years to do anything, while Marvel had Alpha Flight (and remember it's first run lasted 130 or so issues ... And for the first 15 or so years Logan background was seen to be primarily Canadian.

So I wonder if Justice League of America is being cancelled in favor of Justice League Canada or will we see some of the members of the JLA defect to the JLC?
