Wonder Comics is a DC Comics imprint established in 2019. Founded by Brian Michael Bendis, Wonder Comics is a label focusing on younger superheroes and marketed at teen audiences, looking to capture the same market as comics like Teen Titans and Young Justice. While the label is separate, all stories are fully in-continuity with the DC Universe.

Its flagship title is none other than the return of Young Justice, after having been dissolved since 2003, just in time for the return of the animated series sharing the same name, and written by Bendis himself.

  • Naomi — An original creation. The titular character is the only woman of color in an all-white town, and discovers a major secret. Written by Brian Michael Bendis and David Walker, art by Jamal Campbell.

Wonder Comics provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Affirmative Action Legacy:
    • Jinny Hex is the teen female counterpart to Jonah Hex, being his descendant.
    • The latest wielder of the Dial is Miguel, a Mexican-American kid.
  • The Bus Came Back:
    • Young Justice hasn't been around in the comics since 2003, with this imprint marking its return after 16 years.
    • This marks the return of Conner and Cassie after being Out of Focus.
  • Retool: Dial H For Hero is described as a modern retake of an old property.
  • Snap Back: Tim and Bart are now Robin and Impulse again, instead of Red Robin and Kid Flash.
  • Younger and Hipper: As an imprint focusing on young superheroes, it comes as no surprise.
