    We are getting an all new, and 5th by my count I think, Ray in December via a mini-series.

    I guess instead of sticking with Stan Silver who was on the short lived Freedom Fighters series pre-nu52 they've decided an all new Ray reboot. I think having Silver would've been nice cause it ties back to characters like Uncle Sam in the way the Mr.Terrific title straddles ties to JSA.

    The Ray mini-series was first announced back in Sep I believe. It's only recently that details have surfaced. This change doesn't surprise me.

    Too bad he died so ignominiously in Blackest Night.

    And he probably no longer exists since no more JSA.

    I missed that announcement.
    Still, while not some big Ray fan, I would've preferred to not have yet again another new Ray.

    I bought the first three issues of Red Hood and the Outlaws last week, when online reviews seemed to indicate that the initial reactions (to Starfire) were possibly misplaced. I read them today. Actually pretty entertaining, and does seem as though Starfire has an agenda of her own, that her memories do work differently but she's not "swiss cheese" as several reviewers thought at the time. The book implies there were at least two incarnations of the Titans (Roy's and Kori's), and that Azar exists and has some connection to the All-Caste. Is Essence a new character? Or is she supposed to be Raven?

    Like with the end of Catwoman #1 there was a colossal overreaction to Starfire lol. Red Hood has been okay but I'm not really feeling it. It is clear that Winnick loves writing Jason Todd and has chosen to make him the star of the book, as well he should, but I don't think he is doing a good job of integrating Kori and Roy. There's a lot we don't know about Roy yet or Kori but has only been teased so far while we're focusing on Jason. The art is pretty good though.

    ^ Pretty impressive that Winnick's love of Todd can make him the star of Scott Lobdell's book. :p

    I like slacker Roy. The scene with Killer Croc is pretty good - it would be cliched coming from anyone but a giant humanoid crocodile, of course.

    In the end, the "sexy teases" of the number ones was a smart business move that paid off for DC. People checked out the comics and then came back for issue two and now, it seems, three.

    Indeed, I picked up Catwoman #1 out of curiosity of the titillation factor and actually ended up liking the comic as a whole and have stuck with it.
