2 Blue Devil should join Justice League Dark


When I wrote my "2013 wishlist" for Blue Devil, one of the things that I mentioned was that Blue Devil should join the Justice League Dark team. Prior to the New 52, he would've been able to be fit in well enough, but now? With all of the changes to the character, now he's a perfect fit!

Let's look at the current roster of Justice League Dark members:
  • John Constantine, magician and expert liar
  • Madame Xanadu, immortal mystic and fortune-teller
  • Deadman, ghostly acrobat skilled in possessing others
  • Zatanna, skilled in backwards magic
  • Black Orchid, shapeshifter with a connection to the forces of nature
  • Frankenstein, patchwork warrior
  • Amethyst, warrior princess
  • Timothy Hunter, who just opened the Books of Magic
With a line-up of dark heroes like that, Blue Devil would be awesome to see on the team. He's a magically-based character rather than starting out science-based like the old version, and there is a lot of storytelling potential.

We all know how much the modern comics industry digs events, right? There could be at least a small event running primarily through Justice League Dark, that features Nebiros' skin controlling Blue Devil. We've seen little bits of that so far in DC Universe Presents, and Lemire is pretty good at tying together events -- Rotworld, over in Animal Man and Swamp Thing, being a prime example.

So, what do you all think? Should he be the next character written in to that series?

  1. Justice League Dark in my opinion floundered during the first run. However, once Jeff Lemire took over, the series really got some momentum. With that said, I'd love to see Blue Devil (or Ragman) join JLD!

    1. I think Blue Devil and Ragman should BOTH join the JLD! And I agree about the first run. Before it was announced that Lemire was taking over, I was going to stop reading that series entirely.
