19 Questions & 1 Statement


1. After reading this month's Action Comics, Supergirl, Supergirl and The Legion of Super Heroes, this month's Brave and The Bold and the solicits for September's Teen Titans, can we agree that Supergirl has replaced Jesse Quick is "The Most Ubiquitous Woman Alive?" (Brave and The Bold #4)

2. When did Donna Troy become... competent and dare I say... kinda kick-ass? (Countdown #45)

3. Who in their right mind knew Egg Fu could become one of DC Comics' creepiest of characters? (Checkmate #15)

4. Who would win a contest of creepiness: Egg Fu or Marvel's MODOK?

5. With the return of Egg Fu and the return prominence of Giganta, Ares, The Cheetah, Circe & Dr. Psycho, can we all agree that Wonder Woman finally has a Rogue's Gallery worthy of her stature in the DCU?

6. Doesn't this just make you all giddy that Gail Simone is going to be able to tap into that on a monthly basis?

7. How does Adam Beechen keep coming up with newer ways to make Tim Drake cooler on a month-to-month basis? (Robin #163)

8. What the...? (Justice League of America #10)

9.
What the... ?!?


10. WHAT THE F...?!?!?!?!?!?!?

11. All of this "Lightning Saga" craziness was to get him back?!?

12. On the last panel of this week's Justice League of America, whose face is that in the lightning rod?

13. Looks to me like, maybe, New Earth got the wrong Flash and Earth-One got the right one, huh?

14. Can we send Linda Park and the twins back?

15. So does this mean that Batman won't be disappointed for too long in The Flash's return?

16. I mean, how can one have an All-Flash #1 without Barry Allen?

17. If the ending to The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive #13 is true, the death of Bart Allen is one of DC Comics' greatest blunders ever. (The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive #13)

18. Huh. Was that Bart eulogizing himself on the last page of The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive #13?

19. Is that some kind of clue?

20. With Catwoman fighting crazy ex-Soviet super-villains and other insanities, why the HELL aren't you reading Catwoman?

1. Yep.
2. It's nice, isn't it? I first noticed it in Amazons Attack #2.

You know, in all the Flash hullabaloo, I overlooked DC's most innocent explanation. They're not saying "DIE BART DIE," they're just speaking German!

Arynne said...

So the DC editors are those creepy little gremlin guys from Green Lantern?

That explains so much...

wrath said...

that was not Bart in the fastest man alive. I refuse to accept it, it was an older copy created while superboy was having a nightmare and punching the wall in his sleep,

the real Bart will reappear in all flash 1 calling himself impulse again,..

really, honest, I am not just making this all up because i don't want Bart to die.

#3. Grant Flippin' Morrison, that's who!

Oh, in their right mind? Hmm.. that's a toughie.

Steven said...

?!?

Nothing about the Douchbaggery on display in Aquaman? Nor the gruesome and hilarious ending?

Scipio said...

Yeah, really;

where does having someone bite your face off rank on the Rolling Head of Panta Scale of Comic Book Violence?

It can't be a 5 if you survive it, so it's a 4, I guess...

Catwoman is the only character in the bat-clan that I do read (or care about.) The credit goes completely to Will Pfeifer and Pete Woods.

I'm withholding judgment on Simone going to Wonder Woman until I see how it actually works out.

I really don't want to see WW saying things like, "I'm gonna kill ya up."

Anthony Strand said...

I'm okay with them killing Bart, if only because because they've spent the last 4 years systematically removing everything that was ever appealing about the character.

As for Wally, I hope he's more in line with the JLU version now.

Mark Engblom said...

"14. Can we send Linda Park and the twins back?"

I second that motion.

ticknart said...

20. Because, frankly, I've only ever been interested in Catwoman when she was voiced by Adrienne Barbeau.

#5 -- Bring back Villainy, Inc.!

Blue Snowman! Cheetah! Doctor Poison! Eviless, the Slaver from Saturn! Giganta! Hypnota! Queen Clea! Zara, Priestess of the Crimson Flame!

WHOO-HAH!

Now that's a damn rogue's gallery.
