Keith Giffen, JM DeMatteis and Kevin Maguire may still be best known as the team who brought the funny to DC Comics' "Justice League," but their future is looking a bit more adventurous.

Today, the publisher revealed exclusively to CBR News that the team behind the 1986 "Bwahaha" relaunch of the world's premier superteam will reunite this fall for "Justice League 3000" -- an ongoing series chronicling future renditions of the DCU's big guns.

The book will feature versions of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and the Flash as redesigned by artist Howard Porter, presumably taking the iconic heroes one millennium ahead of where we are now. And while the creative team on the book doubtlessly have comedy chops, touches from a militaristic Superman to a mace-wielding Wonder Woman hint that "Justice League 3000" will take up the torch of the creators more serious adventure stories -- of which many were included in their original JL run.

Check out Porter's designs below, and stay tuned to CBR in the days ahead for more from the creative team of "Justice League 3000."
