Someday it will be the middle of the night and you awake suddenly and shout "I get it!"

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

The threat was Superman's very existence and purpose. I suppose that Lord V's human name could be close to Vendetta...since he showed an image of himself to Clark that was very close to the Guy Fawkes mask and that was essentially what he was unleashing against Superman.

It's okay if you didn't like or understand what was going on Trekker...at least you gave it a shot

Also as I've mentioned before this entire thing I think was also partial set up for Multiversity later on. You didn't have to understand the references or whatever, but that's my theory since Morrison himself stated that we would see President Superman as a major character in one of the issues (I assume the story that will feature his Earth).

Yeah, well it looks like maybe the next creative team behind Action will be more my style but we'll see it. As I said, I've really enjoyed "Superman" during all of this time. It's more consistently made sense and stayed as much grounded in "reality" as a comic book can be.

I'll give this run of Action another read to see if it clicks but I may need to try and give myself strep in order to induce a 105-fever first.

Hey, I just realized something, the Morrison Action story was basically "Dogma"! The god character was trapped in a coma and they had to wake him up to stop the demonic god from getting his revenge on the lower mortals.

I've been pronouncing it "Vindictive".

So have I and that's probably what Morrison intended as well...when i saw the Guy Fawkes style imagery though I immediately thought Vendetta. It kind of works IMO

At this point are Gwen Stacy and Uncle Ben still the only "big" characters still dead after a long time?
If Uncle Ben counts then Martha and Thomas Wayne along with Jor-El and Lara-El are still counted among the dead. Maria Castle and the kids also still dead.

I know those are all "origin specific" but since Uncle Ben is included that would count.

I think Gwen is a good example to go with when asking what character(s) is/are still dead in comics NOT tied to the need for their to be an origin story.
Yeah, good points.

Considering all of the deceased characters that have been ressurected by the New 52, I'm kinda amazed that Elongated Man and Blue Beetle have not been among them.
Maybe I'm wrong, but it feels like at this point Jaime has eclipsed Ted for at least the time being.

Elongated Man is just an excuse for his wife.

How could Ralph find the perfect woman, and Ray Palmer go oh so very, very wrong.

Although, Ryan Choi the next Atom, had a very surprising and dedicated girlfriend... The villainess from Wonder Woman's Rogues gallery Gigantress, who when she finally caught up with the murderer of her beloved, broke bone after bone in Dwarfstar's tiny little body until he died.

History repeats.

You bring back Rlaph, then Sue gets raped by Doctor Light again and then killed by Jean Loring AGAIN.

The cycle is inescapable.

Better limbo than being tied to that karmic wheel.

Not Nu52, but I wanted to say that I really enjoyed the Batman story in Batman Beyond Unlimited 14. It focused on Terry's girlfriend Dana and with her coming to terms with the realization that Terry is Batman.

I'm happy to say that Dana is smarter than Lois Lane. She put together the fact that she sees Batman more than anyone, the fact that Terry is never around when Batman is around, Batman's body language and inflection of voice and the fact that he knew her name and put it all together. She also figures out that Bruce was the original Batman.

Terry tries to deny it, but Bruce welcomes her to the "family", as long as she realizes the danger and responsibility. Those who saw the JLU episode "Epilogue" know that she handles both quite well.

Agreed. The intial Justice League arc with Darkseid and Apokolips goes on too long and on too many tangents.

Adam Beechen actually does "writer commentary" for Batman Beyond Unlimited on Youtube if anyone is interested in viewing it. It's rather quite interesting.
