Axel-In-Charge: Navigating the "Civil War II" Landscape, Bringing DMC to Marvel
All this week DC’s The Source blog has been posting images of some of the “Red Circle” characters, a.k.a. The Mighty Crusaders, a.k.a. the Archie superhero characters DC is reviving this summer. J.G. Jones has redesigned them, (with the exception of the Shield, who is wearing his original costume) and did a nice job of updating them to make’em look a bit more modern. Up top is The Web, and you can also check out Hangman and Inferno.
So who are these guys? I only vaguely recollect DC’s first attempt to revive them as their own universe, under the name Impact Comics. And I have no recollection of Archie’s run at publishing them. Siskoid, however, has a pretty good rundown of the major and not-so-major players over on his blog.
The characters will debut in the DC Universe in August.
