They've been a bit busy fighting Steppenwolf. The dead boyfriend has been mentioned and I think they showed his family, but Alan hasn't moved on just yet.

They have done as much with Alan's homosexuality as they have done with the other characters heterosexuality.

Yes, they have done an appropriate job with this aspect of his character I think, at least for the issues I have read (up to June).

In my head I'm comparing Alan's unused "freedom" to the sort of free agent poochie became after his girlfriend was folded up and wedged into a beerfridge a couple issues after he got his ring.

Maybe Kyle is a whore, but he's spread it around with at least 10 women (who are now mostly corpses) since Major Force used Alex like an accordion for all our never ending entertainment.

Given his history, if anyone was going to be in charge of the Black Rings, it should have been him, and he should have worn it on his dick.

(Hal Jordan if he used his ring like a cockring, would obviously be at least 5 times more powerful and destructive because of all the willpower and bloodymindedness down there.)

Soranik Natu is still alive. I guess she was smart and broke up with him before the curse hit her.

Forever Evil was pretty good again. I'm really enjoying this so far. Otis makes a short lived New 52 appearance I'm wondering if the Blight is the thing Ultraman was talking about now that destroyed their world and that they fled from?

I hope not! I hope this menace is dealt with in "Forever Evil" proper not the magic spinoff crossover...

The crossover seems to me a sequel to Forever Evil, or at least stemming out of it, so I guess you're going to be avoiding it if that's the case?

I'm enjoying Forever Evil, I just don't care about the magic characters

So apparently the plan is to do a five years later event for the "third anny" next Sep.

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

But the new 52 is already 5 years after the formation of the Justice league, and one year later in the old 52 sucked because most of the writers didn't want to do it or know how to do it.

Sorry, a permanent leap 5 years hence or just a sneak peek?

Why don't I just follow the damn link?

Okay, so just a peek.

So it's just like Armageddon 2001 which produced after shocks for years.

Hawk is Monarch my ass.

I was slightly confused by Rich's phrasing, but it seems to be a flash forward five years into the future. He references Lex's line in Forever Evil #2 about Bizarro. So it would seem like we will have a time jump of sorts next year if this actually happens.

I was kinda expecting Snyder to pull a rabbit out of his hat with Zero Year, and not make the Red Hood Leader exactly who we thought he was. Then again, it does perhaps make us more excited when we see ACE Chemicals, since we all know exactly what is coming. It's pulled off fantastically, of course.

We've already seen this type of trick pulled multiple times, even in the new 52 with Swamp Thing and Animal Man. I would prefer "four years ago" stories instead.

Oh, also I really wish we still had Capullo's art for the last several pages when the Riddler makes his big entrance. Albuquerque's art doesn't even hold a candle. It's just rough, and honestly kinda ugly.
