    I wish they had more of a presence in the DCU even with the JLD being around. They were more fun and the idea of a cursed team has a lot of potential.

    Agree. I love this team especially Nightshade and Blue Devil. Sad that Enchantress was also degraded back into her old self. Prefer this version much better.

    I was reading the Day of Vengeance Infinite Crisis Special and I don't understand why DC just ignores almost all these magic characters.

    I would prefer to see most of these characters on the JLD lineup than what we got. I liked when the magic side of DC was so lively. Detective Chimp is cool to see again though.

    Some questions:

    1: Would you recommend Shadowpact to someone (me) who was a big fan of the original Blue Devil series?

    2. Now that we have Justice League Dark. Would adding this team make them redundant? Is there a way they can coexist? It may be an odd question. But I do believe in teams having a niche.
    "The fact that a fictional character brings out so many negative emotions out of you is sad."

    Pulls: Justice League, Detective Comics, Superman, The Flash, Cosmic Ghost Rider, Unnatural, Doctor Solar, Age of Doom, Green Arrow, Jeepers Creepers, The Terrifics, Curse of Brimstone, The Unexpected, Punisher.

    I want to say yes. Though it would depend on how they were written. Shadowpact used mostly obscure characters so they had a bit more freedom in terms of characterization.

    SUCH a great team in the "DAY OF VENGEANCE" miniseries,the epitome of taking characters that were in limbo (no pun intended) and making them sing. A shame they couldn't sustain an ongoing.... Nightshade was a favorite, hate that her connection to Enchantress was not explored much beyond "we used to share a body".... Losing artist Justiano was also a blow to the ongoing.

    I loved Doctor Gotham and Pentacle!

    Great villains left to languish on the shelf.

    Did anyone who is a fan of Scooby Doo, Mystery Incorporated notice some similarities with Shadowpact?

    spoilers:
    In the show we learn that the gang are the latest in a long line of groups that have had encounters with an evil entity and all these encounters ended in tragedy but the main heroes are the one who break that cycle. Hell, Shadowpact even had it's talking animal member.
    end of spoilers

    I really see Justice League Dark and Shadowpact as one and the same, with 'Shadowpact' being the name I prefer and 'Justice League Dark' being the name that sells.
    I'd even include Sentinels of Magic and the various gatherings from before they ever had an official name (such as Swamp Thing #50).
    Currently reading: Legion of Super-Heroes ('80s), New Teen Titans ('80s)

    An animated series will probably never happen, but if it were, here's who I'd like involved:

    Creator: Michael Dante DiMartino

    Cast

    Kelly Hu - June Moone/Enchantress

    Arden Cho - Eve Eden/Nightshade

    Crispin Freeman - Blue Devil

    Troy Baker - Jim Rook/Nightmaster

    Tom Kenny - Detective Chimp

    Will Freidle - Ragman

    Grey Delisle - Witchfire

    Never could quite get into JLD, but I loved Shadowpact. I guess JLD had a more Vertigo vibe, which turned me off, while Shadowpact was more of a true super-hero team. I wish DC would bring them back. A really cool team.

    Peace
