This thread is about DC comics. We are talking about Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Nightwing, Robin, Green Lantern, Flash, Justice League, Teen Titans and all of the insane amount of characaters you saw on Justice League Unlimited! So come here to talk about DC comics, TV shows, cartoons and movies.

Remember, not everyone is reading what you are so use spoiler tags when necessary.

"To the Bat Poles Robin!" :rofl:

So to start, DC Comics I read this week.

52 - Nightwing was in it, HOORAY!

Morrison's Batman was really good this week. Spoiler -
Say it ain't so Batman got his ass kicked oooh...

    JSA motherfuckers!!!! That book is too good and it's really picking up. You guys need to start reading that. I feel like I'm the only person reading it. :sad:

    For some reason, it ALMOST seems like DC is setting it up for the next age of comics. It feels like the heroes(i.e. the current identities) we currently know won't be there much longer. Is it just me or does anyone have that same feeling?

    Also, the Flash is getting kinda.......good. It's not Geoff Johns 'good', but tolerable nonetheless. I still think it was a tad too early to bring in the Rogues Gallery, but whatever. We'll see where this goes.

    Thank goodness we can talk about other comics in this forum now.

    I liked the previous two Flash issues. The last page in the latest one was kind of a headscratcher. Forgive the pun, but I think this comic is picking up some speed. Doesn't hurt that Tony Daniel (from Teen Titans) is becoming the regular series artist. Check out some of his Flash sketches here: http://tonydaniel.blogspot.com/


    I really want to get into JSA, but I don't want to have to pick up another title. I've already got JLA, Flash, Teen Titans, and 52, thinking about picking Robin back up, too.

    Yeah I think when World War III kicks off, Batman picks up a sword and Jason Todd becomes Red Robin things are gonna be really different. No worries though, fans bitching about stuff will always make everything go back to the status quo sooner or later...

    What's up with DC doing a retcon of Spoiler's death? Bullshit like that you can't cover up.

    After Infinite Crisis they can do whatever they want, it's a new reality due to Alexander Luthor combining different aspects of different Earths. Like Batwoman being alive and a lesbian for example.

    Of course we are all just gonna attribute this to Superboy Prime punching out reality, that's how Jason Todd came back to life, people seem to reference that instead of what Alexander Luthor did... 'cuz it's funnier. :rofl:

    Nah I'm reading (Vandal Savage is back, squee.), I lost all faith in Marvel since my main man Cap died (Supposedly) and they love doing year long arcs I don't like. Other's I'm reading are the new JLA, very good comic, I consider the "New Avengers" of DC (Pre Civil War).

    Green Arrow continues to impress me, I love GA to death. His battles with Doctor Light and Deathstroke are amazing, and if you know the characters it shows GA's uncanny abilities. Also: Boxing Glove Arrow, 'nuff said.

    To Chairhome: I haven't really been wowed yet, I loved Wally and it's kinda hard to adjust to Bart as Flash, I liked him as the jokester Impulse/Kid Flash.

    About Infinite Crises, Some things I liked and some I didn't. SB's death: NO! 52 being published because of it? YES. Black Adam and Question all the way folks.

    Pained Auron - Yeah it's counting down, but Deathscythe already took week 1. So far, it's looking like this -

    51 Countdown Poo!

    Taichi - Week 36
    sano - Week 33
    Deathscythe - Week 1

    For those of you who don't know what we are talking about, we have an ongoing pool where we guess which week 52 will ship late. 'Poo!' came about because of a typo Zephyranthes made, I thought he was serious and it stuck. There's only 2 people left (no new entries) in that pool so if either one of them wins they will win X-Force # 1 from Zephyranthes' collection drawn by the... 'amazing' Liefeld... If no one wins Zephyranthes will have to put X-Force #1 on his refridgerator.

    And after that we are starting a new pool for 51 Countdown. You have to guess the exact week the book ships late. So far the prizes are Superman Red and Blue and Maggot's first appearance in X-Men. I'll toss in a Liefeld book too once or something equally... 'good' once I see what I have. So if you want a week pick one and we'll put you down.

    You can also pick issue issue #0, that will ship the week 52 ends, only because DC wants to make it a full 52 issues and not 51 so they can say they published a book on time for 2 years straight...

    51 Countdown is gonna be FIRE with Paul Dini and McKeever on board. I'm liking 52 but 51's gonna own it. That joints gonna be like Justice League Unlimited with people dying with lots of great bright red 52 blood and gore plus great character interactions McKeever style. Plus it's freaking World War III oh snap! Only bad thing I'm seeing is that Jason Todd is a major character booo... however they'll put him in the Red Robin suit so Nightwing can stay Nightwing so hooray!

    Green lantern is going to be the bomb when the SC comes out. Anyone think the Manhunter Grand Master will become part of the SC? Definitly green lantern the best right now and everything else is ok. I like Blue beetle and checkmate as well though I really think that should be picked up. Anyone think that the cosmigods in USAFF should have been more than what they were depicted as? I thought they would be on par with the celestials from marvel. I hope they make a comeback in the DC universe.
    Yes I have debated against her, and yes she is hard headed, but it is still funny as hell.

    I really am not liking the current editorial direction DC is taking.

    but since I'm a DC Fan for life, I take it like Boston Fans take the Red Sox sucking year in and year out.

    that said, Green Lantern CORPS Rules, but fuck Hal Jordan.

    As far as Editorial, My only real beefs with DC are -

    1. Too much Jason Todd exposure who I feel should of never came back to life in the first place so I don't need him rammed down my throat every five seconds.

    2. A hero who... they decided to kill off in 52 for no apparent reason. The character became popular because of Justice League Unlimited, why would you want to kill him off now, that's just stupid... Not that death means anything in comics, see #1. Still it feels like they put a whole bunch of people on a dart board and the dart hit this person so they decided to kill him off, no real point to this person's death.
    The Question

    Other than that, smaller beefs I guess. Still read plenty of DC books and stuff, enjoy them for the most part. I think between DC's World War III and Marvel's World War Hulk 2007's gonna be the year where America gets jacked up big time. :rofl: So '07 should be a strong year for funny books.

    Though on a larger scale of things with DC, the WB/DC embargo that kept Batman villains off of the last season of JLU, not allowing Bruce Wayne to appear on Smallville, things like this are just retarded IMHO... but at least they can put some quality stuff on TV.

    my real beef with DC, is that I think Legacies should go forward, not back.

    I don't see any real reason in giving Hal Jordan and Oliver Queen their old names back.

    I just don't like how they're going backwards.

    If you're not the first to carry the name, then you shouldn't be the last.

    and its sad, because they can't even put together a decent fuckin' flick like Green Lantern.

    how hard is it?, Hal gets the ring, he fights Sinestro in space, buncha fan-service cameos, roll credits.

    yeah, I'd do a Hal movie.

    I'd also introduce John, and Kyle, so that eventually they could do some Parallax shit.

    Your kidding.....right? I'm sure Jennifer Gardner or w.e will be the chick bot and your absolutely right about that, anything could be made, I'm waiting on a Creeper movies starring John Leguizamo.

    Green Lantern flick: I'll say it'll star, oh, Justin Timberlake as Hal, with Bee Arthur as Sinestro. The sequel will have Ice T as John Stewart, doing extreme sports/spy missions for the government.

    Man, you don't even want to know what they were planning with those movies. Well, the GL one, at least:
    http://www.aintitcool.com/node/17971

    That's old news (about 3 years old), so its probably changed direction or been cancelled altogether. Thank goodness.

    The Flash one had David Goyer writing the script, but he left the project.
    http://www.aintitcool.com/node/31446

    Hopefully they're either going forward with the Flash one, or combining all these projects into the planned Justice League movie:

    DC comics I read this week:

    Nightwing - Tha tha tha THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! Nightwing goes up in a bar and beats the crap out of everybody looking for some info! THERE WAS EVEN BRIGHT RED BLOOD IN THE BOOK! Comic was so good it made me want to jump in a time machine and do something evil to Devin Grayson when she was writting Nightwing so badly. You know something REALLY EVIL like ring her doorbell in the middle of the night and run away oh yeah...

    52 - Oh snap what the hell happened? This issue had the worst artwork of the entire series! Wow, I didn't think the artists were going to be the ones who had the nervous breakdowns and didn't pull it out one more time. Each issue so far even though it had rotating artists the book had a consistant look, except for this one. Man they only had six issues left... Maybe we should start another poll when this crappy art will return in 52? like 52 BOOOOO! Artwork aside the story was pretty good and Nightwing was in it again, hooray!

    JLA - I couldn't resist buying both covers, put them together and you get an image of the new roster plus some older characters / costumes in the background. Call me crazy but I like the new roster, they are not crazy overpowered, they may even break out a sweat once in a while. And oh yeah they got Nightwing as a reserve member! :rock:

    Detective Comics - This was yet another great story about Nightwing's adopted father Batman. Okay Nightwing had nothing to do with this story whatsoever but since I mentioned Nightwing's name when I talked about the other DC books I read I figured why not. :rofl: No Detective story this time, I wish every issue had one. Scarface version 2.0 still creeps me out. Still a strong comic but I want more mysteries for Bats to solve.

    I'm a bitch about the League.

    I'm all about the Big Seven, they should always be the 'core' of the League.

    and I want J'onn to join at some point..........call me a traditionalist, but he's joined every League so far.

    I love the big seven as well, but I can make an exception for this roster. It seems fun so far. I'm always up for something different.

    As for J'onn: I hate his design at the moment. It's......man....my head hurts looking at it.

    Last weeks 52 was weak. Ugh....Animal Man returning was cool though. And Green Lantern just keeps getting better and better.

    JLA is one of the better comics, though their pulling what I call a "Bendis" and taking lower powered characters and making them interesting (Black Lightning, Vixen, etc.)

    It's good to see Nightwing getting some respect! I'm glad he's a reserve member, maybe he'll move up sometime in the future. I need to start reading his comic again, I'm a fan boy.

    Picked up JLA this week. Seemed a little disorganized. Kept on jumping from one place to another in different order. But I like the lineup though. Vixen seems pretty cool.

    This is the only monthly DC title that I'm picking up right now.
  • ChairHomeChairHome hiding under your bed Joined: Posts: 1,733
    Okay, I just caught up on the past two weeks of 52 and I have some questions:
    Was the "twice named Cain" thing that the crime lady figured out in the prophecy just that Batwoman was Kathy Kane? Or something else? It just confused the hell out of me because it was like, "We tried to kill Batwoman to fulfill the prophecy and failed, but what if we misinterpreted. Wait, that's it! We must kill Batwoman to fulfill the prophecy!"

    JLA was pretty nice though. But... (I'm pretty daft, sorry I need these explanations)
    Was the guy that Batman and BL were ID'ing at the end from an off-screen case?

    Thanks. Also, Karl Kerschl needs to do more work. I love his art. He did the Teen Titans backup story for last week's 52, and the first OYL Robin issue, and I think a Flash issue.

    I don't have a problem with them doing that, especially since BL and Vixen are both former Leaguers anyway.

    remember, 52 was to showcase characters who wouldn't otherwise have a spotlight.

    Steel didn't do well last time he had an ongoing......though, if they play him up like DC's Iron Man (which he is), he's badass.

    he's seriously one of my top ten favorite characters.

    Steel is getting great reception in 52, and I've been meaning to read that but I had a comic slouch and catching up is hard as hell. I really want it for Black Adam, who is one of my all time favorite characters. When did Steel get out of the Aegis Suit? I might have to Wiki him.

    He was killed in OWAW (I think), and then when he was resurrected he went back to the old suit.
    then, in 52, Luthor injected him with his 'everyman' serum, so Steel's skin became metal (Like Colossus, only he couldn't turn it off), until the effect wore off, and he went back to the suit.

    and if you buy 52 for Black Adam, I assure you, his is probably THE strongest storyline in the entire run.

    Thanks for the info, I might have to search for back issues (Hopefully not at a ridiculous price) I heard Black Adam is the shit in it, and his acts will effect DC greatly. Question is another hero I love, and it would be nice to read about him as well.

    if you pay more than $2.50 an issue, you're getting ripped off.....

    no issue of 52 shouldn't cost you more than cover price.......including the first appearance issues.

    that's just my opinion, but online retailers are probably thinking with dollar signs, so be careful who you deal with.

    buy in lots if you can, it's easier that way.

    or you can just wait for the trades, which will be coming soon.
