DC Comics introduces Vandal Savage and Giganta to the New 52

Giganta and Vandal Savage (New 52) - Mikel Janin

DC Comics has been steadily reintroducing characters from the pre-Flashpoint universe into the New 52. The reset button has allowed them to radically alter, redefine and in some cases entirely redesign old favourites. DC has now revealed the look of Vandal Savage and Giganta for the contemporary era. It sounds like we’ll be seeing more of them in Trinity of Sin: Pandora #2, which is due to hit stands next month or so!

From the What’s New in The New 52 blog:

In her New 52 introduction, Giganta will have a new leading lady to tower over: Pandora. As a member of the Secret Society, Giganta is adamant to retrieve Pandora’s infamous box. But why?

Joining Giganta on this ruthless quest is Vandal Savage. Like Pandora, Vandal is immortal – so it’s safe to assume that these two have crossed paths before. In fact, there’s quite a bit of history there. And when Vandal gets that eerie facial scar in TRINITY OF SIN: PANDORA #2, he’ll be sticking around the series long enough for you to find out just what that history is …

Take a first look at Mikel Janin’s designs for these two returning characters.
