So ahead are some semi SPOILERish information from the Comic Vine Podcast post a couple days ago.
- Lois Lane dies in while on the job
- James Robinson is really enjoying writing Al Pratt (The Atom).
- Shade definitely takes place in the main DC Universe
- Had he known of the plans for Earth 2 back then he would have placed it on Earth 2
- There is no Opal City on Earth 2
- James can’t say yes or no what characters will populate Earth 2
- James doesn’t want to explain or answer too much because he wants people to read the story
- Don’t expect any of the of the Quality/Freedom Fighters characters. Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray still have the reins on those guys.
I’m really excited about Al Pratt. I liked how James handled him in The Golden Age and Adventure Comics #1 during the The Justice Society Returns events. It is a bummer that The Shade is not taking place on Earth 2. I do wonder since there is no Opal City on Earth 2, is there a Starman?
