There haven't been any opinions of the new Swamp Thing or Animal Man. I'm waiting to pick them up but wouldn't mind hearing some non-spoilerish news about them.

I guess the TL;DR version is "it's pretty great, and easily the best comic DC published last week."

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

So did everyone spot the "Lady in Purple" for week two of the 'The New 52'?

Action Comics #1

Animal Man #1

Batwing #1

Green Arrow #1

Hawk & Dove #1

JLI #1

Stormwatch #1

Swamp Thing #1


If anyone has a scan/photo of the appearance in Batgirl #1 or Detective #1 and wants to add it. Those are the only two I don't have a pic of.

She clearly has a glow around her. If we are to stick with our assumption then I guess the glow is a type of temporal energy? The Stormwatch panel is the first where it appears she/he has a type of weapon. Looks like a staff? Does that add or detract from this person being the Time Trapper?

I think it's the pre-asian, martial artist makeover of Psylocke from X-men.

@CaptainCraig I think I already posted this earlier this week but here we go again. All Thirteen appearances of Purple Lady from this past week's books:

^^^
Yep, I missed that link.
I knew we had mentioned tracking her so that's why I did what I did.
If I hadn't missed your link I still would've flipped through the issues, just figured I'd snag the pics as I was browsing.


However, having now seen the Batgirl issue is the fact that "Time Trapper" is an active and engaged part of the story significant in some way? Everywhere else she/he is just observing? Also, my question about the staff? Is that important or help add to anything to firm up it is the Time Trapper?

I really could care less about the Purple Lady. I expressed my thoughts on her as a plot device earlier in the thread. Everyone seems to be of the consensus that she is the Time Trapper redesigned. The second suggestion I've also seen is Kismet. I've suggested she could be one of the Monitors gone rogue.

Rouge? she clearly favors purple.

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

I liked Action #1 a lot, although I found parts of it a little confusing...or maybe just a little too convenient. My age, I guess. But it's a really good start.

As long as Morrison is lifting stuff from the early comics, like the wife-beating incident, he ought to do something with Superman trying to interfere with unscrupulous defense contractors.

@Dennis...what did you find confusing? I thought it was a pretty straight forward issue myself. Everyone was introduced from what we can assume is the primary and supporting cast. Morrison has said that more things will be revealed and made clear as we progress through the first year.

But, seriously, I haven't read all the books (and I doubt I will), so I'm not sure. Has the relaunch ignored X-Men: The Last Stand?
