Fan-Favorite Creative Team Takes on JUSTICE LEAGUE 3000

DC's Justice League franchise is growing by one more in the near future, with Justice League 3000 announced Monday.
The book is from Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and Kevin Maguire — the fan-favorite creative team behind the more lighthearted take on the Justice League of the late '80s — and features future analogues of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and The Flash.
It's notable that Legion of Super-Heroes, another DC superteam book set a thousand years in the future, is ending in August, though the designs shown (by former JLA artist Howard Porter) don't appear to resemble the established Legion characters. Also, the future version of The Flash has red hair and green eyes, as does Wally West — the main Flash for much of the post-Crisis on Infinite Earths, pre-Flashpoint era, and a character who hasn't appeared since the dawn of The New 52.
September 2013 solicitations were released last week, so the earliest this series could likely debut is October. Also on Monday, DC announced a Superman/Wonder Woman series written by Charles Soule and illustrated by Tony Daniel, premiering in October.
