DC’s Round Robin competition reaches the final four, leaving fans to choose which series will be published between Robins, Blue Beetle and others.
DC has announced the final four story pitches for their Round Robin competition, as well as the details for when fans can vote on their favorites.
The Round Robin tournament process allows fans to vote for their favorite potential story idea to determine which will be published as a six-issue miniseries in 2021. After two rounds of voting, the competition has been narrowed to the final four pitches. On the left side of the bracket, Green Lanterns: Underworld on Fire by Sina Grace and V. Ken Marion will compete with Robins by Tim Seeley and Baldemar Rivas. Then, on the right side of the bracket, Blue Beetle: Graduation Day by Josh Trujillo and Adrian Gutierrez goes head-to-head with Suicide Squad Seven by Rex Ogle and Diogenes Neves.

The third round of voting will begin on May 5 on DC’s Twitter page and will be open until May 13. Fans are being encouraged to vote and discuss their favorite story ideas on the DC Universe Infinite community forums. Anyone who contributes to the conversation will be awarded the Community Round Robin badge and will have their votes added onto the total from Twitter. Then, on May 20, DC will open up the final round of voting exclusively on the DC Universe Infinite community forum.
Each round of the Round Robin competition reveals more information about the remaining projects. For the start of round three, DC will post full pages from each story. Past rounds have revealed creative teams, concept art, sketches, and cover images.
While it is sad news for fans of the pitches that were not picked up, being eliminated isn’t necessarily the end of the line. Justice League Queer, an early fan-favorite, was eliminated in the first round. However, due to the massive social media support that the series received, DC editors Andrew Marino and Michael McCalister said in a joint statement that “For JLQ specifically, the volume of votes and the personal notes that have been shared online all send a great message that fans want to see a pitch like JLQ succeed, so stay tuned for news about where you might see JLQ appear in the future! We’re listening!”
DC’s final round of voting will close on May 27. The publisher has not stated when they will be announcing the winning series or when in the year the winner will be published.
