NYCC 2017: DC’s THE TERRIFICS To Feature A Surprise Come Back

DC’s The Terrifics includes Plastic Man, Phantom Girl, Mr. Terrific and Metamorpho. This group of heroes might bring back another team that fans thought they would never see again or see in the DCU. DC released a new image for New York Comic Con — take a good look and notice the bottom section.


Yes, exactly the bottom part of the image shows 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 Comic title.

If you can remember, their last appearance 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.

It is described as a “Family” title with the goal to recapture the feeling of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four if the extended cast, Tom Strong and his family would fit right in with the aesthetic. Let us know in the comments if you’re excited to see their return.
