I'm Writing Fantastic Four

Joe Quesada spilled the beans today in his "Joe Fridays" Blog:

NRAMA: With JMS’s recently-announced upcoming departure from Fantastic Four, can you offer up any information at to the future of that title? Who’s the next writer? Will Mike McKone remain as artist?

JQ: The new writer for FF will be Dwayne McDuffie! How’s that for breaking news. We’ll have more info on FF in the weeks to come.

NRAMA: So how much will McDuffie have to inherit in terms of the status quo being developed through the events of Civil War?

JQ: That absolutely comes with the territory. Dwayne completely understands that taking over FF at this juncture means stepping into the middle of this little story we have called Civil War.

NRAMA: So when you discussed the job with McDuffie, did you have to them him, “Well, you can write FF, but Reed and Su are separated and on opposite sides of Civil War. Johnny is with Sue, and Ben is completely out of the picture”?

Or will all that be resolved nice and tidy-like before a new writer takes over?

JQ: No there will be threads that will definitely have to be picked up. While this is usually the case to some minor extent whenever you have a creative shift on a longstanding title, because of Civil War, we need to be extremely thorough about the plotlines that are left unresolved.

In Justice League Heroes, players can purchase new costumes for the original seven Justice League members. There are two alternate costumes per character (with Superman getting three). These aren't your standard quick skins found in most games. Snowblind remodeled each character with their new costume and added some new animations as well. There are also some bonuses applied to specific costumes, including extra health, energy and even experience bonuses.

And Then There Was One……More.

Warner Brothers has announced that Hawkgirl will lend her powers to the Justice League crew, as an unlockable character, in the upcoming game Justice League Heroes. She joins Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Green Lantern, the Flash, Zatanna, Martian Hunter, and previously announced unlockables Aquaman, and Green Arrow. If you’ve read the comics, you already know that Hawgirl has some crazy ass-kicking skills, plus flying abilities- which should translate well into the game. When we know more, so will you. Stay tuned.

Justice League Heroes is the first major pairing of all of the major Justice League characters in a single video game. Most games in the past have dealt specifically with Superman or Batman and were usually tied to feature films or the various animated shows. The game also features some recognizable names in the voice casting. Ron Perlman (Hellboy) as Batman; Michael Jai White (Spawn) as Green Lantern; Crispin Freeman (Kingdom Hearts II) as Superman; Courtenay Taylor (God of War) as Wonder Woman; Chris Edgerly (Drawn Together) as The Flash; Kari Wahlgren (Steamboy) as Zatanna; and Daniel Riordan (Transformers) as Martian Manhunter. Portraying select villains will be Peter Jessop (Spawn) as Brainiac and Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911) as The Key. Additionally, Ralph Garman (Family Guy) will voice Green Arrow.

Aquaman has some interesting powers in the game, such as a water whirlpool that traps foes called a “whirlpool”. The hero of Atlantis also has a sword and water shield. Aquaman is not the only character that can be unlocked. Green Arrow can also be unlocked in the game.

The game boasts an Original story by award-winning comic and animation writer Dwayne McDuffie (Static Shock, Justice League & Teen Titans).

JLH will arrive in Fall 2006 for the PS2, Xbox, PSP, GBA and Nintendo DS.
