DC Is About to Introduce an Ancient Chinese Team of Superheroes

An all-new superhero team will be making their way into the DC Universe in Mark Waid and Dan Mora’s Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #3.

The House of Ji, a superhero team from ancient China, will make their debut in the pages of the comic’s third issue, which promises to showcase a “twisted time-travel tale of titanic tenure.” This time-travel adventure will see Robin and Supergirl team up as they journey back to China circa 1600 BC, where they’ll meet this new team as they pursue a mystery surrounding a shadowy figure.

In addition to the House of Ji, this issue will also see the appearance of a new supervillain known as the Devil Nezha, who features on Mora’s cover art. While their younger counterparts encounter the House of Ji in the ancient past, Batman and Superman will be working together to wart this new villain’s plans for their fellow superheroes.

The upcoming series, which was announced late last year, will see its first issue hit shelves on March 15.
