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

I was reading Sword of Sorcery, is it going to finish out it's arc?

Firestorm is overdue and I wasn't reading the others.

And Guy is right, Aquaman has been cool since easily 1994. People still holding to the seahorse riding mockery of late 70's/early 80s Superfriends cartoons need to revisit the character.

as cool as Aquaman!
I'm not used to seeing those words together.
And a year ago, I never would have imagined that I would write them!

Aquaman has been cool for a very long time.

Maybe 1994?
That was a brief period though, and removed from the traditional Aquaman.

Though his first story in the animated series a few years back was very cool.

Was reading Firestorm, Sword & Sorcery and Team 7. Dont think Sword was given a big enough chance to catch on but than a book about a teenage girl is hardly going to draw big sales anyway. Firestorm has been a disaster since they got rid of Stein and turned Ronnie from a hero into a jerk. Team 7 was just blah, nothing to excite the senses there and it will not be missed.
Firestorm is another character that could have really had a shot in the DCU and fell flat on its face.

When I first started reading comics in the seventies, Aquaman was a badass environmentalist. Somewhere down the road he got depowered somewhat. The problem I had with the nineties version was that DC tried to make him too much like Namor from Marvel, and that really isn't what he is. I really like the new take and his feelings of wanting to belong to a nation or a culture but the culture not wanting him. I think that has a real sense of modernity in our global but regional society--and it gives him a real sense of angst without turning him into a brooding and dark character.

A few May solicits and covers are up at CBR. I like the Justice League cover for the villain. And I hope Power Girl keeps the new cover look. http://www.comicbookresources.com/?p...ticle&id=43654

Bleeding Cool has them all up. I can't wait for the Batman Incorporated finale. I have a very bad feeling about Damian though

The artists could have done a nice job of combining her new costume with the classic by removing the silly P and adding the classic cape style--would have worked nicely.

Dude, learn to multi-quote and/or to edit previous posts.

Anyway. I've been trying to go back and collect issues of Superboy and Justice League and their issus dealing with the current arcs. (H'El on Earth and Throne of Atlantis, respectively.)

LOL--yeah, got a little overexcited there, didn't I?

EDIT: I know how to multi-quote, but not on after my third rum and coke on a Friday night--he he.

I have a question. Is there a new multiverse after Flashpoint or is it the same multiverse as before with only New Earth changed?

It's a fair question. No need to be insulting.

New. As far as we know. This Earth 2 is not the Earth 2 where superheroes fought in WWII.
