    YAY for Shade, but….

    An attack at the Starman museum…
    So wait! In the DCnU, super-heroes have only been around since 2005, but there’s a museum dedicated to Starman (whom we have yet to even see in this new universe, in any incarnation)? Does this mean that we might be seeing hints of the JSA and their place in this brave “nu” universe?

      Keep in mind, DC isn’t saying the JSA never existed. They aren’t saying the JSA has been wiped, what DC is saying is the JSA as a title is taking a seat on the bench for a while. So it is perfectly reasonable that some incarnation of the JSA is around or has been around sometime in the past. DC has said that the word “Superhero” hasn’t been used as a term in the DCnU until JLA #1 arrives, but that doesn’t mean, heroes, mystery men, and avengers of justice or justice society hasn’t been used before…

      James Robinson said in an interview at CBR that there were be multiple “Times Past” issues within the series, and that issue #4 takes place in the ’40’s and there are several cameos in that issue.

    The solicit for Animal Man #2 sounds dangerously close to the Swamp Thing arc that murdered the Vertigo line dead for me almost 20 years ago…

    Tefe’s new abilities continue to terrify Abbie and Swamp Thing, and things take a turn for the worse as Swamp Thing begins a startling transformation of his own that will lead him on a journey into the heart of The Green.

        Yes, but I could also just go to wikipedia to learn what’s going on in whatever comic strikes my fancy, but I prefer to go here and learn from your site. I like the community aspect, I guess.

        I think I’m gonna go to wikipedia to learn about some Legionnaires, I’ve been wanting to know something about Matter-Eater Lad for a while now. lol. ;)
