DC has revealed their programming schedule for this weekend's CCXP Worlds, the 2020 virtual version of South America's largest comic book convention that usually takes place in Brazil. And DC's description of their first panel - Future State: Justice League Family - suggests someone or something could make the jump from the world of animation to DC comic books along with the character Red X.

Red X in Future State appears as a mysterious ex-student of the Teen Titans program. As with Red X's storyline at the end of the Teen Titans animated series, the mystery of Red X’s true identity appears to be central to the story of Future State: Teen Titans.

"...will Tim Sheridan reveal who else (or what else!) besides Red X will make the jump from animation to comics and be featured in Future State: Shazam and Future State: Teen Titans?" reads DC's description (below).

And if DC's communications office is suggesting it, count on it happening. 

"DC's publishing presence at Brazil's CCXP Worlds is packed with panels featuring the World's Greatest Super Heroes, and there's nothing more important to DC than our fans!" reads DC's announcement. "Featuring Brazilian artists Gustavo Duarte, Rafael Albuquerque and Gabriel Picolo, as well as panels with dozens of DC's creative teams all focused on delivering a first look into DC's Future State comics for CCXP's global fans, DC is committed to immersive fan experiences that bring the DC Multiverse to life."

I'm not just the Newsarama founder and editor-in-chief, I'm also a reader. And that reference is just a little bit older than the beginning of my Newsarama journey. I founded what would become the comic book news site in 1996, and except for a brief sojourn at Marvel Comics as its marketing and communications manager in 2003, I've been writing about new comic book titles, creative changes, and occasionally offering my perspective on important industry events and developments for the 25 years since. Despite many changes to Newsarama, my passion for the medium of comic books and the characters makes the last quarter-century (it's crazy to see that in writing) time spent doing what I love most.
