This is one of those things that you see and go “…Huh.” in response:
When asked whether there was a chance of seeing Static Shock in “Teen Titans,” Lobdell replied, “Nothing would make me happier.” However, he said “legal issues” prevent the characters from joining the title.
“Legal issues”? Has the 2008 license for DC to use the characters lapsed, perhaps? Or is something else going on? Unless I’m misremembering, Milestone characters had been in DC Comics fairly continuously in various books (Justice League of America, The Brave and The Bold, Teen Titans, Xombi and Static Shock) from the announcement until Static Shock was cancelled; was there some kind of continuous use clause in there that allowed for the characters to appear in DC books?
