The New 52, Corrected: Checkmate



What Happened: Replacing Deathstroke here.

What I'd Change:There's nowhere near enough intrigue in the DC Universe.  Under my TN52C series, things have changed a bit, but there's still not enough.  What's the inter-organization politics look like when they have to deal with the D.E.O. or other organizations we don't know about?  How would they deal with N.O.W.H.E.R.E.?   These guys need to be on the board, and five years into DC's timeline makes as much sense as any other time. 

Why: No, seriously, Checkmate was an absolutely BRILLIANT idea that had no business being shelved, ever.  Get Greg Rucka and Eric Trautmann back, and offer them as much freedom as they need to tell the stories they want.   Superhero spy stories was a brilliant idea and I loved reading Checkmate every month.
