I seem to recall hearing this is the Bertinelli Huntress and not the Wayne one. I have to wonder how they'll connected it to the JSA.

Apparently the upcoming Huntress mini-series will have eventual connections to Justice Society. Link.

First in-story hints of a multiverse? Or was the Earth-2 concept a false rumor? Or something else completely?
I'd say a different direction, since Levitz's Huntress series is about the Helena Bertinella Huntress, not the Helena Wayne Huntress.

I like that they're doing the sensible modification to the Jim Lee costume design, getting rid of the stupid bare belly. But that's a different topic.

My guess is that DC wants to have a Bat-character on the JSA. Since The Huntress is a character name that has historically been associated with the JSA, the current Huntress would be a natural fit for a modern JSA and would fill the Bat-quota.

It's like James Robinson's Justice League; he couldn't use the "big guns," so he used analogue characters -- Mon-El or Supergirl in place of Superman, Donna Troy in place of Wonder Woman.

It's called nepotism.

If this was anyone else, Levitz would have been off the book after his lackluster start with Adventure and LOSH.

Interesting...Paul Levitz is writing this.

In addition to the link saying that he is writing the mini series.

I'm glad to see the return of the fuller body suit for Huntress.
Still not a fan of the Jim Lee pointy mask but if it's a trade off to have the midriff covered I'll go with it.

USA Today Previews Action Comics #2 and we've another Morrison interview, he talks about Luthor in this one. I can't wait for this.

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

Yeah, can't wait to get this.

I got a kick out of Morrison's instruction to draw Luthor as a once-heavy, fitness-obsessed kind of guy. He's a character who's mutated physically over the decades of his existence in the comics. Early on he seemed to be older than Supes (in fact, his first pretty-much-forgotten appearance in Superboy was as an adult) and fairly paunchy if not heavy at times. When he was retconned into being a contemporary of Clark's in Smallville that changed. Byrne drew him as a big guy who shaved his head after Lois Lane sarcastically compared his balding appearance to Fred Mertz.

Action is getting all the mainstream media attention - deservedly so - in the Superman relaunch. One can see why DC would want to rearrange the creative team over on Superman after the somewhat lackluster first issue.

I liked how in A-SS Luthor was a musclehead. "Feel this. This takes real work!" You'd think the world's smartest human would recognize an inferiority complex but I guess not.

They're treating him as an alien being, Morrison says, "so he has absolutely no rights in any way and they're experimenting on him.
You know, somehow I suspect our social, legislative and judicial reaction to a publicly known alien would not uniformly be "LOL he's not from Earth so we can torture him."

Interesting article. It seems to give the suggestion that General Lane won't be such a bad guy this time around. I know that's something I didn't overly care for when they turned Lois's family into villains.

I'm curious who the main villain Morrison referenced is. Glenmorgan, perhaps?

Still, I think I'm going to drop the title and wait for the trade.

Thing is, people with intense inferiority complexes rarely recognize them themselves.

I think our world would be a lot different if that were the case.

It looks like they've just managed to skip all of that by not telling people. Let's see, this supposedly takes place five or six years ago, right...?

Today, they'd probably just try to take him out with a drone.

Morrison is also looking to give Steel a larger role in the book since he is suppose to be embodiment of what Superman is out to do (inspire others to heroism). From what I heard, the Mr. Terrific book was originally suppose to be a Steel book before Morrison's plans got in the way.
