DC Comics used a logo that was vastly different than past iterations during their New 52 years. It was a new look for a new direction. But when DC Comics chose to steer away from the New 52 concept it was determined a new logo was needed. DC Comics unveiled their latest logo in 2016 for DC Rebirth. The logo took the company back to its roots and looked very similar to the older logos from the seventies. Now DC Comics are taking that approach for the new Justice League logo.
The new Justice League logo will premiere with the extra-sized Justice League #25. The design itself closely resembles the logo used between 1959 through 1987. The most notable similarity is the return of the star. DC Comics removed the star in the Justice League logo when a new logo for the New 52 was introduced.
The new logo debuts ahead of the 60th Anniversary of DC’s flagship superhero team. The Justice League members first appeared as a team in the Brave and the Bold #28 in December 1959. The line-up for the first Justice League was Superman, Batman, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter, Aquaman and the Flash. The team initially came together to stop Starro the Conqueror.
Today, the Justice League roster is comprised of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern (John Stewart), Hawkgirl, Martian Manhunter, the Flash and Jarro.
The new logo will premiere in Justice League #25. Justice League #25 will wrap up the title’s ‘Sixth Dimension’ arc and kick off DC’s line-wide ‘Year of the Villain’ event.
Lex Luthor, who was once a hero in the Justice League, is now a member of the Legion of Doom. As a result, Lex Luthor make the world an offer: Reject the Justice League and allow his Legion of Doom to save humanity because justice isn’t getting the job done.
Justice League #25 will be available in comic book stores and digitally on June 5th, 2019.
