7)Which one of these heroes is the only one who'll be around after 'Infinite Crisis'?
A)Wally West/Flash
B)Conner Kent/Superboy
C)Guy Gardner/Green Lantern

 Some joke about the JLA, blah, blah.

9)Who's about to become the U.S Military's secret weapon?
A)Cyborg
B)Wonder Woman
C)Red Tornado
D)John Stewart/Green Lantern

10)Which villian will destroy an entire country and kill millions in 2006?
A)Brainiac
B)Sinestro
C)Black Atom
D)Vandal Savage

And the article was followed with some sidebars annoucing some big team ups, and a couple new titles schdeuled to come out.

Batman/Detective Comics: A Big Bat shake-up is coming and it's running through both books. Writer: James Robinson, Art: Don Kramer and Andy Clarke.

Blue Beetle: A new ongoing, with the new Blue Beetle, and it's not gonna be Ted Kord. Co-writers: Kieth Giffen and John Rogers, Art: Cully Hammer

Green Lantern: With Johns staying onboard, joined by Ivan Reis at pencils.

Hawgirl: I'm sure everyone knows about this one already.

Superman/Action Comics: Big Status-quo change, threading along in these two books. Co-writters: Geoff Johns and Kurt Busiek, Art: Pete Woods

Supergirl: Being taken over by none other than Gred Rucka after Loeb leaves.

Wonder Woman: Hell breaks loose for the Amazon princess. Writer: TBD, Art: Terry Dodson (!!)

Checkmate: New title spinning out of OMAC. Takes a look at the darker side of the DCU. Writer: Greg Rucka Art:Jesus Saiz.

Ion: The spotlight is back on Kyle Rayner, written none other than by the man who created him. Writer: Ron Marz, Art: Greg Tocchini

Shadowpact: From DoV, our favorite new underdog superteam in an new ongoing (WOOT!) Writer: Bill Willingham, Art: ...Bill Willingham!

GL Corps: Keeps up with Gibbons as an ongoing, with Gibbons doing some art, and then joined by Patrick Gleason


Enlighten me...how is this stuff supposed to be leading to a major status quo shake-up? It sounds like DC's using IC to get even darker than ever before, and it's already pitch-black. Superman either losing his powers or becoming a criminal or whatever else they've got in mind...is DC getting stupider?

It really does feel like the Gore Age is upon us....

I don't know the answers, but From what little I know, here is how I would answer these questions today, these answers may changes later.

1) Which one of these heroines will give birth in '06?
A)Wonder Woman
B)Power Girl
C) Catwoman
D) Oracle

I have no clue, but it must be  C or D

2)Which one of these heroes will be stripped of their powers?
A)Superman
B)Wonder Woman
C)Supergirl
D) Hal Jordan/Green Lantern

Got to be Wonder Woman since Wonder Girl/DT is taking over her book, at least that's the rumor.


3)Who wll become Mayor of a crime-riddled city??
A)Wally West/Flash
B)Dick Grayson/Nightwing
C)Bruce Wayne/Batman
D)Oliver Queen/Green Arrow

Nightwing, got to be Grayson.


4)Who will have Amnesia and become unable to tell friend from for??
A)Martian Manhunter
B)Aquaman
C)The Atom
D)Elongated Man


I would guess Martian Manhunter


5)Who will take on the mantle as the most powerful hero in the DCU??
A)Booster Gold
B)Animal Man
C)Kyle Rayner/Green Lantern
D)Earth-2 Superman

Earth-2 Superman, unless he dies, then maybe Animal Man?!?


6)Which hero will become a criminal in the eyes of the world??
A)Hal Jordan/Green Lantern
B)Superman
C)The Flash
D)Shazam


Hal Jordan, because he can't catch a break.


7)Which one of these heroes is the only one who'll be around after 'Infinite Crisis'?
A)Wally West/Flash
B)Conner Kent/Superboy
C)Guy Gardner/Green Lantern
D)Dick Grayson/Nightwing


Wally is suppose to die, so is Conner Kent and Superboy-Prime taking over, I can see Guy dying too since he stinks, so it has to be Dick, as mayor Smiley


9)Who's about to become the U.S Military's secret weapon?
A)Cyborg
B)Wonder Woman
C)Red Tornado
D)John Stewart/Green Lantern


Red Tornado, being a robot and all.

10)Which villian will destroy an entire country and kill millions in 2006?
A)Brainiac
B)Sinestro
C)Black Atom
D)Vandal Savage

Don't know, but I would guess Brainiac, he has a thing about cities.


Superman/Action Comics: Big Status-quo change, threading along in these two books. Co-writters: Geoff Johns and Kurt Busiek, Art: Pete Woods


Glad to see our pal Kurt Busiek get a chance at Superman, I am looking forward to see what he does with him Smiley


BTW, I can see Earth-2 Superman replacing the Iron Age Superman in the DC universe, that would be the greatest thing ever, considering that the two books are going back to their Golden Age status name wise and the so-called "Big Status-quo change, threading along in these two books".

I hope they don't kill Conner, I really think he has potential.

Sinestro has wiped out entire inhabited solar systems before.  Vandal Savage is responsible for Montevideo's destruction.  Brainiac is responsible for the redecroation of Metropolis.  Probably Black Adam and he starts a war to defend his country and wipes out another

IMPO I believe that Didio thinks a good story  is full of angst, darkness, misigony, violence, and no humor.

Didio once said that DC's heroes are too personable.  People are supposed to be scared of Superman or Captain Marvel when they show up.  In his words an average person should be mentally cringing when Supermn shows up. "My god, what is he doing here?  Did I do anything wrong?"

DC is trying to recapture the feel of The Dark Knight Returns.  It is sort of like when DC and Marvel tries to copy manga's feel.  They just look at the surface and not the substance

Johns and Busiek can do a great work on the character... I hope the artists will be good, too.

Kurt Busiek told us he'd be doing DC work again in a month and that was about a month ago or so.

Here's the link to the teaser post page:

I got my wish!  AND I was right in my suspicion, too! heh heh

(Slightly off-topic: I just glanced at Didio's name and my mind first registered 'Dildo' instead.  Weird.)

These are very hard to tell or figure out.  I do not see Kal-L remaining in the DC Universe after Infinite Crisis.  So any guesswork involving him is probably a diversion by DC.

Here are my guesses, and I'll explain why.

1) Which one of these heroines will give birth in '06?
A)Wonder Woman
B)Power Girl
C) Catwoman
D) Oracle [/quote]
 I think this is a trick question. Power Girl was pregnant in the early 90s, if I remember correctly. The answer must be Catwoman, because Helena Kyle will return and technically she will "have a baby."
Quote
2)Which one of these heroes will be stripped of their powers?
A)Superman
B)Wonder Woman
C)Supergirl
D) Hal Jordan/Green Lantern

Wonder Woman. She killed a guy, so she's not that useful as an ambassador anymore.
Quote
3)Who wll become Mayor of a crime-riddled city??
A)Wally West/Flash
B)Dick Grayson/Nightwing
C)Bruce Wayne/Batman
D)Oliver Queen/Green Arrow

Bruce Wayne. All the other Bat-crew have moved on to Bludhaven. He's the only one left in Gotham city. (Coincidentally, what happened to Wally West during that Zero Hour crap?)
Quote
4)Who will have Amnesia and become unable to tell friend from foe??
A)Martian Manhunter
B)Aquaman
C)The Atom
D)Elongated Man

Both MM and Aquaman have telepathic powers, and some "psychic backlash" will give one of them amnesia. MM is currently missing, so I vote for him.
Quote

5)Who will take on the mantle as the most powerful hero in the DCU??
A)Booster Gold
B)Animal Man
C)Kyle Rayner/Green Lantern
D)Earth-2 Superman

Dear God, let it be Kal-L.
Quote

6)Which hero will become a criminal in the eyes of the world??
A)Hal Jordan/Green Lantern
B)Superman
C)The Flash
D)Shazam

A and B already are. Superman made millions of people disappear, and Hal made the universe disappear. Shazam is dead, though Cap Marvel might take on his name to end copyright confusion once and for all. That leaves the Flash, who is fast enough to run from the law.
Quote
7)Which one of these heroes is the only one who'll be around after 'Infinite Crisis'?
A)Wally West/Flash
B)Conner Kent/Superboy
C)Guy Gardner/Green Lantern
D)Dick Grayson/Nightwing

I can't stand Guy Gardner. But apparently someone can.
Quote

9)Who's about to become the U.S Military's secret weapon?
A)Cyborg
B)Wonder Woman
C)Red Tornado
D)John Stewart/Green Lantern

Black Lightning was a govt. shill during Luthor's presidency, like Amanda Walker. Since black people are bad in the world of DC, I vote John Stewart.
Quote

10)Which villian will destroy an entire country and kill millions in 2006?
A)Brainiac
B)Sinestro
C)Black Atom
D)Vandal Savage

Black Adam, since he's in charge of a country. Then again, that says "Black Atom," so it could be a trick to choose the obvious. I say Sinestro.
