    Justice League (published monthly with rotating artists every four issues)
    (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern John Stuart,) Written by Mark Millar and drawn by Frank Quitely, Jim Lee, and Art Adams

    Batman (Published bimonthly)
    Solo Batman title, will feature more of the super heroic aspects of the character and will heavily feature the Batman Family (Dick Grayson Nightwing, Flamebird Cassandra Cane, Tim Drake Owl Man, Kathy Kane Batwoman, Stephanie Brown, Selina Kyle Catwoman)
    I'd have Joshua Williamson be the writer and Ethan Van Sciver on art duties

    Batman Detective Comics (bimonthly)
    This will be a Batman title that will for the majority of the part, be grounded in the real world, and will have heavy noir qualities, I'd have Brian Azzarello on writing duties and Sean Philips and Duncan Fegredo on art duties. Also there will be a 7 page backup feature anthology showcasing a member of the Bat-Family (The Batman supporting characters who will star in the Batman solo title, but also Renne Montoya The Question, Barbara Gorden Batgirl, Jean Paul Valley Azrael, Michael Lane Azrael, Red Hood and the Outlaws, Helena Bertinelli Huntress, Alfred, Commissioner Gorden will also be in the anthology)

    Superman Action Comics (bimonthly)
    Superman's premier title, will be very action and science fiction oriented, like something Jack Kirby would create, but would also celebrate the character's legacy and history. (Supporting characters include Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen who is reincarnated as one of the New Gods, Superboy Jon Kent, Kon El [I know he's currently dead in the comics, but whatever], Supergirl, Bepo the Supermonkey, Comet the Superhorse, Streak, the Supercat, and Krypto the Superdog. Like how Action Comics was originally, this Action Comics is also an anthology. I'd have Dave Gibbons on writing duties and Steve Rude on art duties. Features 20 pages of non Superman material, a recurring feature in the anthology is Doom Patrol (Young Animal iteration) but the other 10 pages features a one off story reinventing a character from the DC Universe.

    Wonder Woman (Bimonthly)
    Like Brian Azzarello's take on the character, this series will be heavily rooted in Greek Mythology, but also Roman, Egyptian, Christian and Hindu mythology. I'd have Peter David on writing duties and Phil Jiminez on art duties.

    The Flash (Bimonthly)
    This book will feature The Flash (Wally West) exploring the DC multiverse. I'd have Grant Morrison on writing duties and Sean Gordon Murphy mainly on art duties, although there will be a new artist for every earth featured. (Supporting characters should include Linda West, his kids whose names I forget, Barry Allen, Bart Allen, Nix Uotan)

    Aquaman (Bimonthly)
    Will be more comedic than previous runs on the character. written and drawn by Kyle Baker.

    Adventures of the Green Lantern Corps Monthly
    Ideally, it should be a fifty page anthology chronicling various members of the Green Lantern corps, each series ten pages. The following stories will be Hal Jorden by Kurt Busiek and Yanick Paquette, John Stewart by Joshua Dysart and Cliff Chiang, Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz by Sam Humphries and Ivan Reis, that Green Lantern that happens to be an alien horse by Jim Woodring, Jack T Chance by Pat Mills and Bryan Talbot.

    Justice Society (Published monthly)
    Good ol' JSA (Alan Scott, Jay Garrick, Wildcat, Zatanna, Black Canary (Dinah Lance), Green Arrow, Hawkman, and the original Crimson Avenger.) Written by Mark Waid and drawn by George Perez.

    Harley Quinn and the Suicide Squad. (Bimonthly)
    I don't really care about this character but she sells like hotcakes. Written by Paul Dini with art by Amanda Conner and Jill Thompson.

    The Titans (Bimonthly)
    This will be a combination of the Rebirth Titans and Teen Titans teams. The team will include, Dick Grayson Nightwing, Barbara Gordon Batgirl, Cyborg, Beastboy, Aqualad, Red Arrow, Starfire, Donna Troy, Raven) Written by Tom King and art by Chris Burnham.

    Choosing from what we already have (and maybe retooling a few), I'd want:

    2. Action Comics
    3. Justice League
    4. Wonder Woman
    5. Aquaman

    Thanks!

    I knew there was a way to further tweak this. Ok, instead of Justice League, we get:

    All-Star Comics, anthology, featuring Justice League, with 2 back-ups, one for Justice Society and one for Legion of Super-Heroes (premiere teams of today, yesterday and tomorrow in one book).

    Showcase, anthology, 3 equal-time stories, strictly for characters who do not regularly appear elsewhere in the other 11 titles (i.e. Adam Strange, Challengers of the Unknown, Doom Patrol, Monitors, etc).

    Kinda miffed I couldn't find an old Golden or even Silver Age DC title for the Green Lantern Corps to revive ...

    12 books - based on what sells and how DC operates.

    4. Redhood and the outsiders
    5. Super sons
    6. Dark Knight XIIII
    7. Superman
    8. Action Comics
    9. The Flash
    10. Wonder Woman
    11. Harley Quinn and the suicide squad

    1. Batman
    2. Superman
    3. Action Comics (featuring members of Super-Family)
    4. Detective Comics (featuring members of Bat-Family)
    5. Wonder Woman

    10. Teen Titans
    11. Captain Marvel (sorry Swamp Thing)
    12. Showcase (anthology series mainly focusing on the JSA and the Legion, plus stories from Anthro to Jonah Hex to Sgt Rock and other characters who do not regularly appear elsewhere in the other 11 titles).
    Thank you America for voting for change.

    If I was thinking as a business instead of a fan then this is how I do it.

    1) Superman (stories focusing on Superman; Lois Lane and Jon Kent as supporting characters)
    2) Batman (stories focusing on Batman; The Bat-Family occasionally guest stars)
    3) Wonder Woman (stories focusing on Wonder Woman, Steve Trevor as a occasional guest star and back up stories showing either Cassie, Donna or Artemis)
    4) Aquaman (featuring Mera; Garth, Jackson, Lorena and Dolphin are recurring stars, and back up stories showing either Mera, Jackson or any character from the DC Universe)
    5) Green Lantern Corps (ft. Hal, John, Guy, Kyle, Simon and Jessica, back up stories featuring space-themed characters showing either Lobo, The Omega Man, Hawkman, Adam Strange, Space Cabbie, Red Lantern Corps, Sinestro Corps or Saint Walker)
    6) The Flash (One story focusing on Barry Allen and the other on Wally West I and other speedsters in a multiversal story)
    7) Justice League (focusing on the Justice League and back up stories showing other heroes such as Shazam, Constantine, Vixen, The Atom, Swamp Thing, etc.)

    8) Suicide Squad (focusing on the Suicide Squad; Back up stories showing other villains/anti-villians/anti-heroes such as Harley Quinn, Deathstroke, Gotham City Sirens, Katana, Red Hood, Deadshot, etc.)
    9) Titans (Cyborg - still a member of the League, teams up with Beast Boy, Starfire and Raven - members of the Live-Action Titans Roster - back up stories featuring either Deathstroke or other young characters such as Blue Beetle, Ravager, Firestorm, Amethyst, Stargirl, etc.)
    10) Green Arrow (ft. Black Canary as the deuteragonist; Emiko as the tritagonist, characters such as Roy Harper and John Diggle occasionally guest stars and a back up story featuring any member of the Arrow Family)

    11) Action Comics - Super-Family Anthology (Four different stories: The first shows Superman, second shows Supergirl, the third shows the Legion of Superheroes and fourth is any member of the Super-Family - e.g. Superwoman, Superboy, Kon-El, Steel, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen & The New Gods)
    12) Detective Comics - Bat-Family Anthology (Four different stories: The first shows Batman & Robin, second shows Batgirl, the third shows Nightwing and the fourth is any member of the Bat-Family - e.g. Batwoman, Catwoman, Red Robin, Lark, Bluebird, Orphan, Batwing, Red Hood, Spoiler)

    Honourable Mentions:
    Nightwing, Constantine, Brave and the Bold, Showcase, JLA, Shazam, Swamp Thing, Young Justice

    Tough Cuts needed here... For me it would be iconic and classic and a lot of people wouldn't be happy

    1. Superman: Because Naturally!

    2. Action Comics Weekly: I think Action comics is such a staple it has to stay in print... I remember a few of these weekly that had Blackhawk and Green Lantern in the old days, and I think that's what I would do here. This would be a good place for shorter stories with a bunch of lesser tier characters who got cut when things were whittled down. Firestorm, Atom, Blue Beetle... Characters with fan bases, but not enough to make the top 12. Run kind of like '52' was after infinite Crisis. That grabbed a lot of people's attention and introduced some new fans to characters like Animal Man and Booster Gold.

    3. Batman: Again, because Naturally

    4. Detective Comics. Another classic that should never go out of print. I think I would use this similar to Action with characters like Elongated Man, Tim Drake, The Question... J'onn Jonz the more detectivey side of DC. Power level is unimportant if the stories are more character and clue driven

    5. Flash: Personally I would go with Barry, but I could equally see this being a Wally book

    6. Green Lantern. Sorry guys, but I'm a Hal man all the way. The other lanterns would be around but Hal would have the book and he'd split his time between cosmic and earth adventures

    7. Wonder Woman: I don't think it ever sells well... but I hate the idea of WW being out of print.

    8. Brave and the Bold: I think this would be a team up book like they tried a while back. Maybe Batman + someone else... or maybe just two A/B listers in a short arc.

    9. Legends of the DCU. Honestly, I loved this book in the 90's, and it satisifies my 'out of continuity' and 'silver age' itch. Stories that just don't fit in the modern stories but still 'classic' characters. Alex Ross' Justice would be the feel of it I think. I loved that world he had there. Classic characters in the Iconic costumes. I would also field it as people telling stories, so they may or may not actually be true, freeing up any continuity issues or power level issues. If you want Superman and his super dog hurling the moon out of orbit... This is the book for that.

    10. Justice League of America: Original 7 or maybe Satellite lineup. If Wally got the Flash Book, then Barry absolutely gets the JL book.

    11. Advemture Comics: A place for the Space heroes to hang out. Hawkman, Adam Strange, Various other Green Lanterns, Legion of Superheroes.

    12. I'm not sure here... My first instinct is Birds of Prey or Teen Titans. Maybe Green Arrow, though he could really fit in with Green Lantern, Detective, or JLA... so he probably doesn't get his own book. Nightwing is a favorite that I can't find a place for. I'd love for a Classic JSA book... Maybe Supergirl? I'm not sure if despite her age she's consistent enough to get a book... Maybe a place for some Elseworld stories set on other random worlds... maybe that could tie in with Legends??

    Twelve is hard...

    I like the anthology books; Action, Detective, and Adventure because it gets a rounder cast of characters without wasting books on characters that are too new or too divisive. It also keeps the books focused on a theme. Mystery/street crime, Space opera heroics and then I guess 'traditional super-hero'. I'm not sure how well they'd fly,
