Is DC in need of a Hero in 2017?

Is DC in need of a Hero in 2017?

The fight has never been bigger for DC, they are deep in competition with Marvel to dominate the Superhero sub-genre of the box office. As Marvel are seemingly rising, DC are starting to fall, but where did it begin to go wrong for DC and is it too late to save it?

The ones that remain include Logan, and a frail, mentally ill Professor Xavier. Patrick Stewart’s return to the role is extremely satisfying, as he gets to explore a different side […]
