ABC Comics' mainstay Promethea will be making her debut in February 14's Justice League of America #24, as revealed in a revised solicitation for the issue sent out by the publisher.
Originally intended to be the start of a new storyline, JLA #24 will be the third part of the expanded storyline from #22 and #23 titled "Queen of Fables." The team apparently loses out to the Queen of Fables, leading to the arrival of Promethea to help.
As part of this change, originally-solicited JLA #24 artists Miguel Mendonca and Dexter Vines have been replaced by Neil Edwards and Daniel Henrigues. Terry and Rachel Dodson are illustrating a new cover Justice League of America #24, but it has not been released. Doug Mahnke's variant cover, however, shows Promethea fighting the Queen of Fables.
No reason has been given for this change, but presumably the story for JLA #25 and all subsequent solicited issues will be slid forward as DC have done in the past with other ittles.
Promethea was created by Alan Moore and J.H. Williams III in 1998 for Moore's America's Best Comics line at WildStorm. DC acquired WildStorm that same year, with Promethea #1 coming out in mid-1999. ABC's Tom Strong is being promoted as part of DC's "New Age of Heroes" title The Terrifics. While League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was a creator-owned project by Moore and Kevin O'Neill, Promethea and the other ABC titles were all company-owned.
Here is the updated solicitation:
