During its Meet the Publishers panel at WonderCon 2018, DC's Jim Lee, Dan DiDio, Bob Harras, and Scott Snyder announced that following the weekly No Justice series, the publisher will launch "New Justice," a Justice League-centric imprint that will include three Justice League titles as well as other titles such as Teen Titans and Hawkman.

In addition to Snyder, Jim Cheung, and Jorge Jimenez's previously announced Justice League series, two other series will spin-off of the core title. First up is Justice League Dark, written by James Tynion IV with art from Alvaro Lopez, Raul Fernandez, and Brad Anderson. Snyder described it as "James Tynion's dream book." The story centers on the creators of magic in the DC Universe coming to take it back, and features a team of Detective Chimp, Zatanna, Man-Bat, Swamp Thing, and others, led by Wonder Woman.

Then writer Josh Williamson and artist Stjepan Sejic will create Justice League Odyssey, in which Cyborg, Starfire, Azrael, Jessica Cruz, and Darkseid (yes, Darkseid) explore the universe in one of Brainiac's old head ships with flames painted on the side. Snyder joked that he had initially wanted to name the title "Justice League WTF."

All three teams will operate out of the Hall of Justice, with Snyder's core team using it as their headquarters. Snyder's Justice League will pit the team against a new Legion of Doom. Snyder could not reveal which villains would comprise the roster, but promised it would be packed with fan favorites. Additionally, Tynion will co-write some issues of Justice League that weave the Legion of Doom into the story.

Also operating out of the Hall of Justice will be a new incarnation of Titans, written by Dan Abnett. Described by Snyder as "the Justice League's AAA farm team," the team is led by Nightwing and Raven and includes Beast Boy, Steel, and Ms. Martian. 

Meanwhile, writer Adam Glass and artist Bernard Chang will take over Teen Titans with #20, with a story that sends Robin out on his own, leading a team of rebellious young heroes, including Kid Flash, Red Arrow and several completely new characters like Lobo's daughter.

Other titles under the "New Justice" banner include the recently announced Hawkman as well as an unnamed project from writer Bryan Edward Hill that may spin-out of his upcoming Detective Comics story which teams Batman and Black Lightning.
