Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Looking forward to this one a lot. I imagine DC will get their last little wave of free promotion from the mainstream press next week.

"Action News," with that logo? Love it.

"McCoy" comes across in one panel as an O'Reilly clone.

It's not clear that Supes is all that much better known or trusted now than when he was a kid leaping buildings with a single bound (cute line, that). That's kinda nice.

Looking at things from a contemporary perspective it's hard to imagine that a major news outlet, other than something like FOX News which has a specific political party line running through its coverage, would be a big cheerleader in Superman's corner or that of just about any of the other superheroes.
