A Sneak Peek At 5 New Villains For DCs New 52

Michael Wirth 08/19/2011 Reviews

Are you following David Macho Goméz on Twitter? You should be.

The agent for Spanish Inq, a group of Spanish artists, released on his Twitter feed images of five new villains set to appear in the upcoming New 52 DC reboot books. I really like the fact that DC is bothering to create new characters for the release. I would have assumed that most of the books would just included reimaginings of their current characters and be left at that. It’s refreshing to know that they are generating some new ideas for the New 52.

First up is the picture of the Cleaners, by Jesus Saiz, set to appear in Birds Of Prey.

    I think DC would need a large influx of villians since there were few villians in the wildstorm universe (I think WildC.A.T.s was the only group with a real rouges gallery). I think there might have been some others but most were more tied with these-events-happened-after-this-happened since most of there wildstorm foes were more real world-ish or universe wide things (The Gen things that tied a bunch of them together). …maybe stormwatch had a rouges gallery to, which might explain why only those two group are the main intergrators (like Static Shock was for Milestone due to higher profile)

    Interesting. As long as they flesh out the characters it could be pretty good.
