DC's The Terrifics - the brand-new 'New Age of Heroes' team of Plastic Man, Phantom Girl, Mr. Terrific and Metamorpho  - may help welcome back another team of superheroes reader thought they might never see again, or ever see in the DCU. Check out this new image DC has released for New York Comic Con - and make sure you scroll to the bottom. 

That's titular hero Tom Strong, his wife Dhalua, daughter Tesla and companions Pneuman and King Solomon, the cast members of Alan Moore and Chris Sprouse 1999 America's Best Comics title. 

The last appearance of the characters was in 2013's Vertigo limited series Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril by Peter Hogan and Sprouse.

The Terrifics will be written by Jeff Lemire with artists Ivan Reis and Doc Shaner. Described as a superhero "family" title with the goal to recapture the feeling of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's Fantastic Four, if a part of the extended cast, Tom Strong and his family would fit right in with the aesthetic. 

Look for more information about the role of the ABC property in the title and the DCU in general as the publisher makes it available.
