    I was reading Sword of Sorcery, is it going to finish out it's arc?

    Firestorm is overdue and I wasn't reading the others.

    And Guy is right, Aquaman has been cool since easily 1994. People still holding to the seahorse riding mockery of late 70's/early 80s Superfriends cartoons need to revisit the character.

    And a year ago, I never would have imagined that I would write them!

    That was a brief period though, and removed from the traditional Aquaman.

    Though his first story in the animated series a few years back was very cool.

    Firestorm is another character that could have really had a shot in the DCU and fell flat on its face.

    When I first started reading comics in the seventies, Aquaman was a badass environmentalist. Somewhere down the road he got depowered somewhat. The problem I had with the nineties version was that DC tried to make him too much like Namor from Marvel, and that really isn't what he is. I really like the new take and his feelings of wanting to belong to a nation or a culture but the culture not wanting him. I think that has a real sense of modernity in our global but regional society--and it gives him a real sense of angst without turning him into a brooding and dark character.

    Bleeding Cool has them all up. I can't wait for the Batman Incorporated finale. I have a very bad feeling about Damian though :(

    The artists could have done a nice job of combining her new costume with the classic by removing the silly P and adding the classic cape style--would have worked nicely.

    Dude, learn to multi-quote and/or to edit previous posts.

    Anyway. I've been trying to go back and collect issues of Superboy and Justice League and their issus dealing with the current arcs. (H'El on Earth and Throne of Atlantis, respectively.)

    LOL--yeah, got a little overexcited there, didn't I?

    EDIT: I know how to multi-quote, but not on after my third rum and coke on a Friday night--he he.

    I have a question. Is there a new multiverse after Flashpoint or is it the same multiverse as before with only New Earth changed?

    It's a fair question. No need to be insulting. ;)

    New. As far as we know. This Earth 2 is not the Earth 2 where superheroes fought in WWII.

    But was that what it was in the original New 52? I don't think we ever saw Earth 2, did we?

    Enjoyed both Earth2 and Phantom Stranger this week. Also really liked the story in Injustice Gods Among us, the art not so much.

    Thanks. Looks just like the seventies version from when I was a kid!
