Justice League is going through some big changes in 2017 and part of those changes include a new team line-up.
Steve Orlando will be penning Justice League of America, and DC revealed to Comic Vine that one of the newest members of the team will be Ryan Choi, The Atom. Before he joins the team, however, Choi will get his own one-shot in January, giving new and old readers alike some insight into who he is.
Here's the official information about the new initiative:
Foes of evil! Enemies of injustice! As it began in DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH, for the mighty heroes of the Justice League of America, all wrongdoing is a menace to be stamped out! Whether it comes from outer space, from the watery depths of the seven seas, or springs from the minds of men, the JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA is back—just when we need it most!
In January 2017, kicking off JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA (hitting shelves twice monthly starting February 2017) are four DC Rebirth one-shots. They make four bold statements that form the foundation of a team that will bring justice to places that have given up on hope; places that thought heroism would never find them. The Justice League of America goes there! They explore the Microverse, the Hidden Cities, the worlds within worlds; they go to the other side of the map and explode forward with the new face of Heroism.
This is a Justice League that looks like America, that proves Heroism can look like ANYTHING and ANYONE.
From February 1960 to February 2017. The mission hasn't changed. It's just evolved.
Who’s on the roster? THE ATOM. Meet Ryan Choi, prodigious theoretical physics student, hyper-allergic, and crippling social anxiety sufferer. But little does young Ryan know, his first day at Ivy University will begin an epic journey that will take the all-new Atom into the very heart of the DC Universe.
