PHILADELPHIA (AP) — DC Comics is turning to its young heroes, unveiling new lineups and looks for the Legion of Superheroes and Teen Titans, among others.

Also slated for a relaunch is Static Shock, one of the publisher's African-American heroes created by late writer Dwayne McDuffie who championed more minorities in the pages of comic books.

The titles announced Wednesday include "Legion Lost," ''Legion of Superheroes," ''Teen Titans," ''Static Shock" and "Hawk and Dove."

DC is launching 52 titles at No. 1 in late September featuring scores of its characters, including Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and the Justice League.
