    Default DC needs more superhero teams.

    Marvel has 3 well known teams like Avengers, Fantastic Four & X-Men but DC only has Justice League and Teen Titans. I feel that DC needs to create at least 2 brand new superteams to add more variety to their comics. A DC version of the FF or X-Men would be most welcome.

    The Teriffics is literally that, dude.

    DC has a ton of teams, many of which are currently around. Two of the most requested books at the moment are Legion and JSA.

    Might see a return of the Outsiders, too.

    They have the Terrifics now. (Their current FF-like team.)
    And Doom Patrol is currently on hiatus, seemingly so Way can get caught up. (Their current X-Men-like team. Although the older Titans are more X-Men-like to me, they just don't get treated like that by DC anymore.)

    Other DC teams-
    Legion of Super-Heroes (someday)
    Outsiders (DC will want to keep the IP around, so I'm sure we'll see them again)
    Infinity, Inc. (likely never to be seen again)
    Suicide Squad (currently being published)
    JSA (someday)
    Shadowpact (maybe someday)
    Omega Men (DC should've cashed in when the first Guardians movie came out. Now we'll likely never see them in an ongoing again.)
    Currently reading: Legion of Super-Heroes ('80s), New Teen Titans ('80s)

    Suicide Squad counts as a team.

    I'd like to see Gotham City Sirens brought back. I guess Catwoman is out but maybe Killer Frost, Livewire, or someone else joins the group.

    DC has plenty of different teams.

    Green Lantern Corps
    Legion Of Super Heroes
    Justice Society Of America
    Infinity Inc.
    Suicide Squad
    The Terrifics (who seem to have been created to fill a Fantastic Four shaped void in the DCU)

    And quite a few more. In fact, there are so many different make-ups of teams in the DCU that DC often struggles to do some of them justice. Sometimes these teams get neglected which I think is the underlying point that you're trying to make. Perhaps you mean that DC should make more of an effort to promote these teams better?

    I sincerely hope not. If that is the case though then at least it was a stunning way to bow out.

    There's also the New Challengers, the Immortal Men, and the Unexpected don't tell me those aren't signs of DC making more superhero teams? And the New Challengers are also Fantastic Four lite since they are based on the Challengers of the Unknown the prototypes of the Fantastic Four so you're getting two Fantastic Four-lite teams in DC.

    There's also the Outlaws.

    DC has plenty of teams and frankly until they iron out their issues with the ones they have I'd rather not see any additional ones created.

    Current Top 30 Titles:Accell/Red Hood and the Outlaws/Curse of Brimstone/Superb/Green Lanterns/Terrifics/Maxwell's Demons/Silencer/Flash/Incidentals/Noble/My Hero Academia/Ninja-K/Sideways/Monstress/Alters/Batman/Kino/ASM: Renew Your Vows/Summit/Bloodshot: Salvation/Moon Knight/Astonisher/Jazz Maynard/Damage/Brillant Trash/Scales and Scoundrels/Daredevil/Green Hornet/Punisher


    Oh my goodness gracious! I've been bamboozled!

    How many of them have comics?

    They need as many as can sell a comic. If 12 of them can sell 12 comics, then they need 12.

    DC has more teams than the NFL... What it needs are good writers for them, and a return of the JSA and LSH

    DC has enough teams but just doesn't use them. DC not using them is the same reason why many characters are still not being used also.

    To name a few

    Legion of Superheroes
    Outsiders
    Shadowpact
    Justice Society of America
    The Power Company
    The Sentinels of Magic
    Gen 13

    There are some glaring omissions and I think DC absolutely needs JSA and Legion at least. Would love to see Outsiders and multiple JL(A) and Titans teams (YJ, TT, Titans, etc).

    I love team books way more than solo books typically.

    DC Rebirth has felt strangely lacking in something to glue the DCU together as it was pre-Flashpoint and I think team books provide that glue. Wiping out team histories to start over did away with the "glue." Team books with restored histories would bring it back.

    And it's just a crying shame that JSA has been gone so long though we're constantly being promised it's coming.

    Technically the Outsiders already returned in Metal, it's just no one's followed up on it .

    I don't think it's really the Sirens unless it's Catwoman, Ivy, and Harley.
