Born at the dawn of time, five siblings find that with eternal life comes eternal war. As the forces of destruction march into the modern world, they operate from the shadows, recruiting the elite against the foes who seek to bring about Armageddon. They are humankind’s hope sprung eternal….they are the IMMORTAL MEN.[/quote]

Début de la publication prévue (pour le moment) pour octobre.

Ben…Jim Lee…je fonds…

Ca rappelle le StormWatch lancé durant New52, sur le principe.

[quote]So we start throwing ideas back and forth, like the idea of these heroes plucked out through time, and the idea of a super-hero team as a cathedral built over several generations. Like a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen of hero archetypes over time, but modernized in the modern era, so they’re not wearing old-fashioned outfits in modern day.

But they all come from these eras and have backstories from these different eras. And then there’s the idea that there’s a secret history of heroes in the DC Universe that gave up on being in the public eye like the heroes we know and love. It’s this sort of dark secret of heroes at DC. And villains, as well.[/quote]

[size=200]INTERVIEW DE JAMES TYNION IV[/size]

J’avoue qu’en ce qui me concerne c’est plutôt cette partie-là de l’interview qui retient mon attention :

[quote]Where we are is talking about this family of five immortals that each became immortal at the dawn of human civilization and each have the superhuman ability to make someone else immortal — to give them one piece of their immortality. These people with extraordinary abilities are chosen based on their philosophy, because each of the five immortals have their own philosophy on how to keep humanity alive generation after generation. And they’re conflicting views.

The main group is built by the eldest brother of the family, who believes that it’s individual action — heroes — that keeps humanity alive. The next eldest, his sister, believes that it’s competition and conquest — the idea that you have to want to beat the next person. That’s what drives humanity to succeed. And there are three other houses with their own philosophies about saving the world. But saving the world does not always mean being a hero.[/quote]

J’attends cela avec impatience. :wink:

The Immortals ou Immortal Men ?

The Immortal Men.

Probablement la série que j’attends le plus en 2018.

Pour Jim Lee ou/et Tynion?

J’aurais penser à The Terrifics te concernant. :wink:

Tynion, Lee, et le concept général.

The Terrifics j’y jetterai un minimum un œil, parce que ça va convoquer un certain nombre de personnages qui ont, disons, ma sympathie (à défaut de susciter d’instinct mon enthousiasme), mais comme j’ai souvent eu l’occasion de le dire sur ce forum et ailleurs, j’ai un rapport ambivalent à Jeff Lemire – je pars plutôt confiant quand il est sur un titre indé mais nettement moins quand il fait dans le mainstream. Et le gag de faire de l’équipe une contrefaçon des 4F m’a fait sourire (allez, peut-être même ricaner) trente secondes, mais au-delà de ça, je demande à voir.

Ce qui est annoncé de The Immortal Men, en revanche, ça touche pas mal de boutons qui ont tendance à me faire triper en matière d’imaginaire, et j’ai beaucoup plus confiance dans le scénariste – étant entendu par ailleurs que ni Jim Lee ni Ivan Reis ne sont des manches pour ce qui est de tenir un crayon.

Nouveau report pour The Immortal Men. Le #1 sortira le 11 avril.

Ça commence à faire beaucoup pour cette nouvelle ligne.

Elle risque de périr encore plus vite que prévu !

Et comme on pouvait s’en douter, Tony Daniel et John Romita Jr quittent leurs séries respectives après 3 épisodes. Jim Lee tiendra-t-il aussi “longtemps” ? :wink:

Tout comme Reiss. Pour une ligne qui a été (sur)vendu avec ces artistes, ça l’a fout un peu mal non ?

Tout comme Reis.

Pas faux. Mais lui, son remplacement a été annoncé dès le début, histoire de prévoir le coup.
Ca me fait penser aussi qu’on n’a plus de nouvelles de la reprises des Challengers de l’Inconnu par Snyder et Kubert…
