This might be slightly off topic but has there been any word on DCs plans for Icon - the Milestone version of Superman?
They seemed to make a pretty big deal out of gaining the rights to use these characters and while Hardware has been mooted to be replacing John irons role in the DCU I've yet to hear of where Icon might fit in. All things considered he seems a bit redundant in the context of the DCU....
Any thoughts on how he might fit in?
All of the Dakota characters are part of the DCU, as a result of "Infinite Crisis". But apparently according to Didio, there are no current plans for anyone outside of Static who is appearing in Teen Titans. Icon made a quick cameo in Action Comics on a monitor in Project 7734. Dwayne McDuffie had probably intended to make Icon a member of the JLA, but his firing nixed those plans and James Robinson is using Mon-El and the Guardian.
