I certainly hope that DC is not building up to crossover where we have to buy twenty different books a month to follow the story.

How many people have been the Time Trapper? I am familiar with Cosmic Boy and Superboy Prime (which was a ridiculous notion, IMO). Who else?

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?
To me the staff appears to be a discarded electric guitar that obstructs our view of her full figure. There's nothing there, visually, that suggests it's an object she's holding.

She appears to be wearing some kind of lame jacket suit along with her cloaked robe garb in one of those images. I'm pretty sure she's meant to fit into the next crossover which will probably be next summer.

@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.
I just skimmed some parts and really didn't follow the connection between GlenMorgan and Luthor's machinations, or how his demolishing a building connected with GlenMorgan dynamiting a subway train for Luthor's convenience. The suggestion, if that's what it was, that the city would bring the subway system to a halt on the word of an apparently itinerant twenty-something newspaper reporter. And some other things. I liked Peter Parker in his Clark Kent disguise, though. And the fact that he reports to Mister Taylor, who I guess is George Taylor of the Daily Star, which was the set-up in the very first Superman comics.

And Jimmy's cell phone does that "ZeeZeeZee" watch thing when it rings? And Luthor likes to suck down those awful energy drinks now, huh?

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

I don't know from "writing for the trades," but the way the first issue of Justice League is put together story-wise makes a lot of sense to me. Introducing these characters a couple at a time and establishing how their personalities and abilities complement and irritate one another, how they differ in their approaches and their self-images, how they help one another out and get in each other's way, seems to me a better way to draw someone into being interested in following them than throwing six characters at a new reader right away such that about the only thing the writer can do is line 'em up for a roll-call and a little supposed-to-be-clever banter while they fight something.

The idea that Batman and GL are naturally antipathetic to one another has struck me as really perceptive since it was first introduced, and I think some of the reasons it's so are laid out pretty plainly in this encounter.

I wouldn't be surprised if that energy drink that Luthor was consuming was some kind of smart elixir he came up with. I look at all of this as younger versions of "All Star Superman" since this is partially based on Morrison's proposed "Superman: Year One" story that would have been a prequel to All-Star Superman.


As for Justice League #1...I don't have a problem with writers writing for trades. I have a problem with bad writing and atrocious dialogue of which there was in that book. I expect better from Johns who can and has done better with both things.

We've clearly been replaced by mirror versions of ourselves.

Maybe, but it's branded - has a logo and a name something like "Voltage."

Looks like the label also may say "cola" at the bottom, so maybe it's just supposed to be something like Jolt rather than an energy drink.

Your acronym for All-Star Superman is unfortunate, as it was a pretty good book.

I thought it was pretty good across the board.

@Myasischev it would appear so. LOL

@Dennis yeah now that I flip through that page you are right it does appear to be a regularly branded energy drink, perhaps LexCorp owns it Another possibility is that Lex guzzles though to keep awake all night and day in order to play around in the lab.

I'm sorry, "ZeeZeeZee" still has me going.

This makes Clark and Jimmy out to be more contemporaries, it looks like, which is kind of nice. I always preferred the Michael Landes version of Jimmy Olsen to the others.
