Brian Michael Bendis and Scott Godlewski will bring two of DC’s powerhouse teams together in an adventure that spans time.
Two eras of DC’s greatest superheroes will team up to face a “great darkness” in a new miniseries that begins in January.
Brian Michael Bendis and Scott Godlewski will bring together the Justice League and the Legion of Super-Heroes — two teams Bendis is very familiar with — in Justice League vs. Legion of Super-Heroes. But “vs.”? I thought they were teaming up?

Johanna Draper Carlson has a quick summary, with links, at The Beat: Former Star Trek writer David Gerrold and artist Ty Templeton mashed up the Seuss book with Star Trek characters and themes to create Oh, the Places You’ll Boldly Go!, which was supposed to be published by ComicMix. The famously litigious Seuss estate sued on grounds of both trademark and copyright infringement; the courts dismissed the trademark case in 2017, and in 2019 a judge found the book was sufficiently “transformative” and met the conditions for fair use.
