Captain Marvel to Return to the DC Universe?
Tuesday, December 09, 2008
Wizard's 2009 Preview issue is due to hit comic shops Wednesday, December 10, 2008 — but one morsel of news hit the Internet early....
Justice Society of America writer, Geoff Johns is slated to leave the title with #26 but not before working with Jerry Ordway on the 3-part Black Adam storyline in issues #23-25.
Johns had this to say...
"Jerry Ordway is coming on to the Black Adam storyline. He's going to be illustrating that and he'll be guiding the Shazam Universe again, which I think will make a lot of fans happy."
Ordway guided the Marvel Family mythos in the mid-to-late 1990s and has since been a strong proponent for Captain Marvel being one of the pillars of the DCU.
Obviously it's to early to know what is going to happen in the storyline, but tongues are wagging that this might just be Cap's return to his own red and gold uniform — which makes sense since it looks like Freddy Freeman will be back in his blue uniform in James Robinson's and Mauro Cascioli's Justice League. What do you think?
