    Default The Rebirth Era--How Many Will Get to 50 Issues?

    Well, we've already guessed which titles would be canceled first. Now, with the first titles of the Rebirth era reaching issue #40 I thought I'd ask: how many titles, and which ones, do you think will reach 50 issues?

    As a point of reference, 12 New 52 titles got there:

    ACTION
    DETECTIVE
    SUPERMAN
    BATMAN
    WONDER WOMAN
    The FLASH
    GREEN LANTERN
    AQUAMAN
    GREEN ARROW
    JUSTICE LEAGUE
    BATGIRL
    CATWOMAN

    What do you think?

    Depends on how many titles will get renumbered like Superman in the summer. If they felt the need to relaunch that title, I can't imagine they will keep the number on books like flash and green arrow.

    that's a great point. the superman relaunch caught me completely off guard (if it was an open secret, i totally missed the memo).

    but, since we're getting fairly close to the 50-issue mark on most of the rebirth titles and i haven't heard much about a massive marvel-esqu relaunch initiative i'm going to assume anything that's not predestined for the chopping block will get there.

    About 12 Titles, not counting the ones that will relaunch and then reach 50 issues. (Superman, Action Comics, Justice League, Titans?, Teen Titans?)
    Aquaman
    Batgirl
    Batman
    Detective Comics
    Green Arrow
    Green Lanterns
    Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps
    Harley Quinn
    Nightwing
    Suicide Squad
    The Flash
    Wonder Woman

    Edit: Adding "Supergirl" to the list of titles that I think will reach 50 issues.

    We know that Batman will reach #50, since it's the mariage issue. Nightwing should probably reach that too, possibly RHATO and Deathstroke (depending of any change in the teams for those books. I could see Priest pushing Slade up to 50 at least, and Lobdell is doing an awesome work with the Outlaws, so I hope it'll keep going). Batgirl and BOP could also reach it, if their base remains strong.

    Okay, thanks. After that correction, Action will also reach 50 issues in its current iteration.

    I was thinking about this. I figured they would do something around issue 50 or 52.

    There do seem to be a lot of changes coming around May which is that time.

    But I don't think anything will really change .
    We know Superman is getting renumbered but I think that's an isolated thing because of Bendis
    And it's not even reaching 50. It's ending at 45. Which is weird.

    As said Batman is reaching 50 and I'm sure will go further as King isent going anywhere and the marriage is just the beginning.

    Justice League might be the only other one ending before 50 because of the big shake up with No Justice and Snyder.

    Flash is not ending around there either as the big Flash event Flash War is just starting in issue 47 and will probably go for a few issues.

    The only other ones I could say maybe ending around there is Green Lantern and Wonder Woman because I suspect they will have a shake up soon as well.

    But we'll have to wait until the May solicits come out later this month to know for sure .

    Priest was spotted at a marvel retreat recently so I worry they’ll snag him before Deathstroke can get that far but let’s hope that is not the case.

    He was writing Inhumans Once and Future Kings at the same time as Deathstroke. Doing a marvel book doesn't stop him from doing both, especially since he will be off the twice monthly Justice League soon.

    The retreat is for exclusive writers only. So if he's staying with Slade he shouldn't have attended.

    Priest is not leaving, Priest was not at the retreat, he was with some Marvel writers at some dinner ...unless the dinner was the retreat, in any case he was invited to dinner b/c he was in town.

    Priest is writing a book for Lionforge as well, so I don't think he's going anywhere.

    Also I concur, I think Deathstroke will reach 50 and probably end.
    My priority is black female characters; everything else is secondary.

    Marvel: Miles Morales, Riri Williams, Ororo Munroe, Thor, Quentin Quire.

    Ships: Thororo/ThunderStorm, Vixen/hasn't been created, Jason Todd/Kathy Duquesne.
