Stephen and Matthew: JSA Annual #1
“Welcome to Earth-2!” Power Girl has made a life for herself on our world, as a member and chairwoman of the Justice Society of America and as a hero in her own right.

But she’s never stopped dreaming of one day returning to her Earth — the parallel world where the members of the Justice Society were the only heroes. Where her best friend was Helena Wayne, the daughter of Batman. And where evil was a little easier to fight…wasn’t it? As her greatest wish comes true, Power Girl’s about to find herself back on Earth-2, surrounded by friends she thought she’d lost forever.

TRADE PAPERBACK REVIEW
Kingdom Come

Set some 20 years into the future of the then-current DC Universe, it deals with a growing conflict between “traditional” superheroes, such as Superman, Wonder Woman, and the Justice League, and a growing population of largely amoral and dangerously irresponsible new vigilantes. Between these two groups is Batman and his assembled team, who attempt to contain the escalating disaster, foil the machinations of Lex Luthor, and prevent a world-ending superhuman war.

    Hey guys I tried to send you an e-mail at the podcast@majorspoilers.com but for some reason I keep receiving errors saying yall aren’t getting it. Any reason why?

    Ohh yeah and you should definitely do a podcast on Earth X, Universe X, and Paradise X. You do a love of stuff on DC and I’d love to hear your opinions of the Marvel side of Alternate Realities (and no that is not an invitation to start talking about the New Exiles which pales in comparison to their former selves).

    I found this Podcast to be quite amusing during one part, because right in the middle I believe it’s Matthew who says, “If you’re listening to this in 2010, hey how’s it going? Do we have flying cars yet? (chuckle by Stephen) Stephen: Do they have these issues in your dollar bin?” I was turned onto the site about 9 months-1 year ago by a buddy of mine, sometimes posts under the moniker Hitman Sam and I just Direct Downloaded podcasts 28-81 and I’m up to 34 and it’s January 29th, 2010 and I just wanted to let you guys know, from the future, we still don’t have flying cars. But if it’s any consolation we have a black President named Barack Obama, who’d have thunk right? He’s gonna get on a comic cover and it’s gonna make people go insane so then there’s gonna be like 30 other covers with him on it plus later printings and they’re going to be worth a lot for like 3 weeks and then nothing. Oh yeah, Image is going to be back in the news a little and unfortunately Liefeld is back drawing three-ponytailed guys with a million pouches and the future is about to start looking shiny and Heroic!
