The (One) Punch(!) Heard Round The World.

An absolute epic moment in Justice League history.

ETA: IMO, the best part of the scene isn't even in that re-cap. It's when Guy hands his ring to Blue Beetle who just tosses it over his shoulder. Seen here, with this interview with Keith Giffen.

I remember that issue.

My favorite part of early JL(I) was the bit where the Gray Man finally gains manumission by way of his execution.

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

Trekker I don't think maybe you're getting what the plot of the opening arc is. Diana's origin is just a sub-plot. Zeus is gone. The Gods are stirring and as we saw this issue it would appear a coup is in the works Diana herself is already established as Wonder Woman at this point, protecting the girl's child from the wrath of the gods, specifically Hera. We're building up to an inevitable confrontation between Hera and Diana. This is an exploration for "new" readers as to who this "new" Wonder Woman is. I will agree with you that the pace is a bit slow though. I have no issues with the art.


I had forgotten we'd seen the large armoured dude standing beside Talia before. He calls himself the Fatherless and claims to know Damian. I don't think it is as simple as being a fully grown and aged Damian clone. Also regarding what Allyn said about it making sense that Bruce has Damian close by him in "Batman and Robin" due to the bounty...remember this story takes place pre-Flashpoint and what is going on in the New 52. One would assume that Bruce and company were able to defeat Leviathan's plans and that the bounty is no longer in effect. I think Bruce is just having parental issues with Damian and the bounty has nothing to do with it.

Ha! "The Punch Heard Round The World" made #10 in Comic Vine's "Top 50 Comic Moments Of All Time".

Wow. I have read every single one of their Top 10 moments. Not all in their original issues, but I've read them all. Cool.

Here's a look at the New 52 Superman and Flash action figures that are coming out with the "All Star" wave 2 from Matty. I seriously might get the Superman. Dark Supergirl looks pretty awesome and Red Robin I dunno. I think they made Tim look too old and bulky.

Red Robin looks more like the Kingdom Come 25+ years later version.

^ Kind of what I was thinking. At first I thought it was Dr. Midnight.

Or, I suppose, it could be Jason Todd from COUNTDOWN.

It is Tim though. This figure has been much anticipated by fans. I just wish they made him more like his likeness from the books. He's supposed to be around 17. He looks like he's in his late 20's or early 30's in that pic lol.

That's because they've very clearly reused a Batman head for Red Robin, but chopped the ears off. Mattel pulls this crap all the time.

Excellent Point. I didn't think about that.

I personally would've expected Red Robin to be wearing a bar apron and 13 pieces of flair.

Nice to see Mattel is already going to be releasing New 52 characters. I love this line and have been collecting the Superman-related characters. Supergirl is a repaint, so I'll pass on her, but I'm eying the Superman (and maybe the Flash).

Not sure if I like this one more than the other line of New 52 figures. I'll wait and see until they are both released to see which one looks better.

Not so obvious Red Robin restaurant joke?

The Batman and Wonder Woman figures shown at SDCC were admittedly magnificent looking. I'll be picking the two of them up for sure. I posted a link somewhere earlier in the thread if any one wants to sift back through it.
