    How is the ship explained mostly?

    It's not a dirigible (I think the Owl ship in Watchmen was.), and the original at least was built with human technology, so no nth metal.

    Oh I don't have any expectation that they'll actually use Jaime's armor and they've already alluded to Ted.

    Just one of the many reasons to watch Young Justice then. ;)

    Actually, I saw Dig's quip about aliens in the last episode as foreshadowing that the writers do intended to open the gates to DC's celestial pedigree at some points.

    On Lost Girl recently Rachel Skarsten has been wearing some pretty sweet wings.

    Again lets mock Smallville.

    Daniel Jackson seemed to capture the character fine, but his wings were piss poor.

    Beetles ship would be some unused urban pacification(no I never heard that before)ship that Kord industries didnt release. He just added the bug shape.

    I missed that comment from Diggle about aliens.

    By "mostly," do you mean that what was one of the best comics of the past 20 years was replaced by a much, much lamer version.

    If so, I agree.

    That being said, while I love Jamie, I am not fully comfortable with Arrow going "Full DCU." I like that it's less about powers and more about street level. I could see a Flash like the early 90's one working, but I'm not eager to see Jamie with his alien scarab. I think Ted Kord would fit much better. It would also add some lightheartedness to the show. I also think Ted and Felicity would make a much better couple than her and Barry.

    Of course, I'm still hoping that Felicity meets the father of one half of a certain flame headed DCU hero, since that's how she was introduced in the comics.

    That's actually a quick edit on what I originally said which was: "Has either beetle turned up in the DCU yet?"

    The thing that pissed me off was getting rid of one year later. I loved it how those stuiupid kids, were suddenly his peers and a love interest because he lost a year form a time jump/stasis whatever...

    Of course then he's dating... No? It was Firestorm who was dating the 6 year old.

    Yeah, Ghenna was one of those technically six, but mentally older. Not creepy at all.

    Then again, this is from the same company that gave you Arisia the couple centuries old under-ager who Hals was dating.

    Are the scenes on the island or wherever that is flashbacks? Me am confused.

    EDIT: "Compressible micro-fabric"? Like something you could compress into, say, a ring...?

    They should put all those scenes together in the back of the book....

    Well that was an awesome episode on just about every level! Slade behind the serums release was tottaly unexpected and he pulls off the eye patch quite well.
    Barry gets powered up and the only way that could have been better was if the cg lighting had crept across his chest.
    Grundy dies on Sunday and get further mutated into who knows what.
    Ollie gets his mask, thanks Barry.
    So much good going on this week, is it January yet??

    A few weeks back when Lance was arrested and his full name was given, it was raised about a private detective in the Green Arrow comics called Larry Lance.

    After tonight could the producer be taking him down the road.

    Yeah, I may die if that Flash pilot gets made but never aired. Great episode.

    I haven't seen it yet. So, Barry got powered up in this ep? Does that mean the Flash pilot wouldn't be the origin? That's weird.
