TERRA - poor old Terra didn't have a good time of it in the pre-Flashpoint world and ended up a traitor to the Teen Titans and then a Black Lantern. The new Terra, Atlee, was a nice addition to Power Girl's title but she's been lost post-Flashpoint. However, it has been announced that a new Terra will be in the forthcoming (this is written in early April, my friends) Ravagers series so while it may not be the same person, the name's in use.
TERRA-MAN - oh good lord. No.
THE TERRIBLE TRIO - you know, despite how dreadful they look, I could almost see Grant Morrison doing something with these three. I hope he doesn't, though.
THAROK - one of the Fatal Five, Dave Sopko, the official COEP Legion go to guy, says "A chance of seeing this member of the Fatal Five again by years end...however slim." so he'll go in the possible list.
THIA - with the gods and monsters focus in the Wonder Woman title, it wouldn't surprise me if Thia showed up but I think she's more closely linked with the Teen Titans so I doubt it.
THE THINKER - no sign as yet of this old Firestorm villain but I can see him turning up as a pawn in the Zither Corporation or something. Possible but not that likely.
THRILLER - according to the original article, this "series is not part of the DC Universe timeline" so no need to worry about it then.
PETER CANNON: THUNDERBOLT - will the hoo-ha about Before Watchmen (I'm guessing there'll be hoo-ha as the first issues haven't been released yet as I write this) stimulate any interest in the Charlton characters? Probably not so I don't expect to see Mr Cannon running round in his blue and red shorts just yet.
TIGER - ah, the cheery faced sidekick of Judomaster who went on to be a psycho and kill lots of people. Yeah, don't think he'll be back soon.
TIGORR - no word on the Omega Men in the DCU so I don't expect to see him either.
TIMBER WOLF - one of the Legionnaires who's been appearing in Legion Lost apparently so he's already in place.
THE TIME TRAPPER - sheesh, even an almost complete novice like myself knows the Time Trapper's continuity is more convoluted than Hawkman's ever was. Was he some enemy of the Legion's from the future? Was he Cosmic Boy gone bad? Was he Superboy-Prime gone badder? Whether anything will become clearer in the New DCU is unknown, much like whether he'll even turn up by the end of the year. Dave Sopko, the official COEP Legion go to guy, agrees saying "It will be years before this guy is seen again. Especially after the Superman Prime debacle."
So in summary three in place (Deathstroke the Terminator, Terra and Timber Wolf) no definite predictions and one possible (Tharok)
