Blue Devil and Daredevil

Blue Devil looks to be making a return to the DCU alongside Black Lightning, a character he has never been previously associated with (I guess they are going for a "black & blue" motif).  I am a fan of the Dan Cassidy character, and I hope they do not stray too far from what made him so fun to read about in the first place.  I am not sure about the new, even more bestial design.  He looks like he is perhaps drawn to be younger than he was before, as he has a much slighter build than he has previously had, or maybe he just needs a few good sandwiches.  The arc with Black Lightning has been described as a "buddy comedy", so at least it seems he will still be one of DC's more fun characters - something that is sorely needed in the new DCU.

Daredevil seems to be in great hands these days.  I have really been impressed by the quality of the artwork, especially the covers, since his most recent relaunch.  Hopefully that will be maintained once Marvel has their sweeping "Marvel Now" line change, which is on the horizon.

Don't worry about Daredevil, it jsut won 3 Eisner Awards (Best Writer, Best Ongoing, Best Single Issue), there is no way Marvel is going to cancel it now.

Oh, by the way, your Shining Knight/Black Knight cover reminded me of two other characters, both female, one from Marvel, other from DC, who have, or at some point had, winged horses. I wonder if you're planning anything with them.

Valkyrie has a winged horse, but which DC character are you thinking of?
