That kind of why I think Arthur didn't want to be the king. He knew he'd be losing all of his hard work with calming the surface world, now though what has happened has gulfed the relationship between Atlantis and the surface considerably. He did say though perhaps he could still make something come of this. Hopefully that happens, but it seems like it's gonna take a long while...and probably not until after the Trinity War before diplomatic relations start to heal...if they even do.
Rule Atlantis...

Stay up here and knock boots with Mera....


Hmmmm, real tough choice there! Too bad AM made the wrong one.

Poor Mera, think I'll go console her.

I haven't read Wonder Woman since a couple issues in. I know everyone praised those issues, but to me it felt like a horror story Wonder Woman had stumbled into rather than an actual Wonder Woman story, which is exactly the wrong way to start up a new universe. Has it gotten better since then?
I followed WW for the first 8 or 10 issues. It wasn't interesting me at all, whatever storyline they were on was just moving to slow and I didn't find interesting. I think WW has been better used in the other books. The art, for me, in WW wasn't great either.

I still am hoping Johns has a Mera ongoing in him Or at the very least a mini series

Personally I think the take, urban fantasy, is a smart move. It's one of the gutsier choices. And it's been great since the beginning. It just might be your cup of tea.

a Johns Mera mini would be great. i'd also like for him to do something with the Aqualad that was introduced in Brightest Day.

Yeah. I don't think we've seen him at all in the New 52 yet. He was Johns creation too I believe. Black Manta's son correct? I've already forgotten his name.

Jackson Hyde/Kaldur'ahm. yeah, Johns created him and he is Black Manta's son just like in Young Justice. i remember reading somewhere that Scott Lobdell wanted to use him in Teen Titans and was denied. hopefully he'll show up soon.

Johns didn't create him. The guys who did the Young Justice show did. Johns only suggested making Black Manta his father and then imported him into the comic book.

I concur with everything said about how JLA#17 concluded the Throne of Atlantis storyline.
Sadly, with everything done to make the surface trust him, treat him as an equal this ends with a few examples of how that respect to some degree has been lost.
Well he is no longer a joke anymore.

Someone help me I actually enjoyed Vibe #1. It was basic and simple and I have seen it done dozens of times, but there was just something I liked. Perhaps its just the "I cant wait to see who pops out of the portal" promise the series has. On another note my LCS pulled the Idaho cover of JLA for me. I quickly switched it out for Vermont. The story was ok except to learn that MM listens to everyone on the planet.

I thought David Finch made MM genuinely creepy.

And I agree Vibe was good. I bet Gypsy is going to be part of the supporting case.

Anyone else cheer and "raise the roof" after reading that, cause I did...

I'm sad now. But this was expected and I know Morrison will give him a good ending...sigh...but I was hoping it wasn't true. I do love that cover though

I just hope this doesn't lead to another bout of ultra-grim, super-obsessed Batman. Because that guy is dull as dishwater.

I don't know if it will lead to that but I do think it will continue the current theme of Bruce being on his own. What the Joker did to the family, and now this...and Harper Row getting into the spotlight, I'm sure the books will play around with the loner Batman again. We still don't know how Batman Incorporated is going to finish.

Well even though I haven't been "spoiled" yet, all this talk of spoilers basically tells me what the spoiler is. Oh well. Too bad it leaked so early.
