    If Holt is the 3rd smartest guy in the world and this new villain is smarter, then who is #1?

    How much of this mess thrown against the wall is going to stick or stick for how long without running down the wall paper and making a big mess? I think some people’s careers are going to be over if this does not pan out. I also thought that I read that Mera was killed at one point either in Flashpoint or something else. So how is she alive? I want my Earth back. I dont know which Multiverse this mess is in, but I dont like it at all.

      How can you say you want your Earth back when an issue hasn’t even been released yet?
      I don’t remember this complaining when Barry became the Flash or the Crisis ended.

        There was no Internet back then, and if the Internet’s not used for porn, it’s used for complaint. I think it’s a law.

    I love finding out in the solicit who died in the previous issue (Legion Lost). Nicieza acknowledged it was his mistake, but shouldn’t someone from editorial noticed how much was being spoiled between the description and the cover?

    Plus, I think he’s really pissed off the Gates fans…..

      And Tyroc. I don’t see Tyroc there, just as he was starting to be reworked into a not-embarassing character. Bummer.

      Still, Legion Origins as Batista on the Legion, and I LOVED his work on the DnA run years ago, so I’ll have to see that one.

        Tyroc’s there–he’s in the white coat on the left. It’s Yera that’s missing. And if she dies, I wonder if that implies Gim is the one dying in the main series?

          But as for the Gates fans–I was looking at Nicieza’s Q&A discussion board and noticed a lot of people claiming they’d drop the book if Gates is gone…. Interesting.

    Yeah, I’m annoyed about Gates and Yera.

    Anyways, its funny that the new character in the Titans.. on top of looking like a crummy early ’90s Image look, also has a crummy early ’90s Image name… Bugg. I would be annoyed about this too if I hadn’t gave up on the Teen Titans a few years ago.

    Re: Justice League #2. Batman’s plan to take down Superman should be really simple.

    Step One: Call Zatanna

    Step Two: “Namrepus Pots!”

    I’m loving this resurgence of Rob Liefeld. It was getting a little old bashing him for all of his old stuff, now we have new fuel for that fire. Look at Hawk’s topmost arm (the guy in red, I’m not sure who the guy in brown is) the distance from his wrist to his elbow is like 2 inches and his other hand it’s about a foot (like normal). I will never understand in this day and age how he can get work and how he still proudly announces that he was not formally trained, and that he taught himself how to draw. Well, yeah you did, that’s pretty dang obvious, but maybe you should’ve kept training past that Basic level. Nicely done figuring a new position to NOT show your characters feet on the cover. I’m waiting for his inevitable cover where a half dozen people are running at the viewer and yet somehow there’s this little hill they’re coming over that hides all their feet except for those who are flying, who will be coming in from out of the frame and their feet will be hidden off the side of the page.

    Although, if Liefeld ever released a comic that was nothing but feet, like literally titled “Oh Yeah? FEET BITCH!” I would buy 10 copies and I’d probably pay to have it graded.

    Sorry for the language, it sounded funnier in my head that way.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
