Interesting that there were a couple of post-Zero Hour Legionnaires in Morrison's LSH flashforward--Umbra and the snake Projectra.

So, did Action #16 confirm or deny the Doomsday / Death of Superman storyline? They seemed to reference it, but then also it seemed to be part of a fictional past that the Little Man made? We already know that the Steel and Superboy have different origins now so clearly "The Return of Superman" story, if it exists, went VERY differently.

It confirmed it. Though it happened differently in the New 52 and was known as literally "Doomsday". The Little Man altered the present day to remind of them/recreate that day is how I took it. "The Death of Superman" in the five year time line took place in year two I believe lol. I still don't understand how they think the five year timeline isn't a constraint on what stories they can tell. Unless one of the purposes of the New 52 is for stories to focus in just that time period. Anyway...it happened.

Paul Levitz is only going to let them pry LoSH from his cold dead hands.

Anyone would be a godsend and there is a long list of people who could do wonders with the franchise starting with Morrison.

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

I'm really going to start championing Sholly Fisch...his backstories in Action Comics have been terrific, and that Legion one was great. Morrison though, oh boy...the possibilities of him with the Legion are limitless. I was a little worried at first with how he would treat them, but then that was settled when they showed up in the first arc. He treated with respect as they should be treated. Levitz clearly respects them but his story telling techniques with them are so erratic that it becomes frustrating following the book, I'm still a bit sad I dropped the book.

While I like Andy Diggle and am really looking forward to his run part of me also wishes that Fisch had been given a chance at writing the lead in ACTION COMICS. He's been a consistent bright spot in Morrison's extremely uneven run.

I wasn't sure where else to post this and doubt a thread of its own would generate much traction, but I'm extremely excited for this.

The mini-series has not been bad at all. Glad that Keith Griffen is sticking around on it.

I've been enjoying it...the digital series has been terrific for the most part so far. I expected the mini-series to be awful, but it's surprised me. Also the mini-series is in it's own continuity, while this upcoming ongoing seems like based on the cover will be taking place in the digital series continuity which seems to follow the MOTUC continuity.

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

the digital series has been really great thus far. seems odd that the ongoing would be in a separate continuity from the mini though.

Some of the April covers are up at CBR. A lot of stuff going on in them. Batwoman looks great. http://www.comicbookresources.com/?p...ticle&id=43138

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

I agree about the separate continuities, but I think that was one of the selling points of the mini-series, that was in its own continuity. DC made it clear that it would be distinguished from everything else. The Digital Series I'm pretty sure has been following the figure line continuity as I mentioned, since it has featured elements from the line I believe, including Geoff Johns own creation Sir Lazor Lot (sigh). I'm just really excited about this, I didn't really expect that we would get an ongoing. The trade for the mini-series comes out in July I think too.

Yeah those covers look like they're part of some kind of gimmick cover thing DC is planning for April. They're supposed to be gatefolds, which is why half of the image is showing. Should be an interesting month.

Lets see this week,
Action 16, liked the LSH bits more than the actual story. Found the action Jimmy Olson a bit silly. Really enjoyed the backup story with Universo.
Detective Comics 16, Good all around though I doubt the Joker would allow these other groups to flourish since they would take away from his spotlight.
Earth 2 8, Nice self contained story introducing Fury. This one continues to keep me interested.
Phantom Stranger 4, This books keeps ratcheting up the tensiion and next issue is the Spectre so that will be good. Constantine was great in this issue and seems to be fitting in well with the main DC universe, which is a surprise.
Worlds Finest 8, Nice flashbacks to Huntress with her Mom and Dad. This series needs more of this. Looks like Batman will be involved soon.

I'm catching up with Wonder Woman and Worlds' Finest this week, and really enjoying the latter.
