Or – “Let’s See What His Origin Is This Time!”
As a Legion of Super-Heroes fan, you get used to the timestream changing. There’s a reason why it takes at least five minutes to clarify WHICH Wildfire, Timber Wolf or Saturn Girl you’re a fan of.

Or – “I Still Remember The FIRST Superboy #0.”
The New 52 has made a lot of changes to a lot of characters, but none is as welcome as finally seeing Superboy in a costume that wasn’t horribly dated within seven minutes of its creation. Will the REST of this special origin issue make readers as happy? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
In order to keep up with the DC’s guaranteed monthly release of titles, there are going to be times when guest artists and writers are going to be needed to fill in to keep the schedule on track.
DC Comics has announced that after issue six of Legion Lost, Fabian Nicieza will be stepping down from writing duties. I’m sure the news of his departure will upset some, but there is some good news. Tom DeFalco is taking over for the next story arc.
Archie Comics, publisher of Archie and Stan Lee Comics, continues to bring excitement to new heights with legendary Marvel writer/editor Tom DeFalco with the explosive action of The Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E.—a brand new four-part thriller!
“In recent years, James Bond, Star Trek and now the A-Team have been modernized for today’s audiences. It’s time for the super-spies and secret agents of The Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E. to return,” states Co-CEO Jon Goldwater. “After the success of ‘Archie Meets the Punisher,’ Tom DeFalco was a perfect fit for the explosive adventure the world is about to see.”
Moonstone Books has announced it is bringing back Airboy in an all new series written by Chuck Dixon. It’s all part of Air Fighters #1, that hits stands in January 2010.
Flying in Airboyâ€™s squadron youâ€™ll see Sky Wolf, Black Angel, Flying Dutchman, Bald Eagle, Flying Fool, Iron Ace and Captain Midnight as they take on the original Axis of Evil in the air, on the ground and anywhere else their fight for freedom takes them.
With stories navigated by Tom DeFalco, Martin Powell, Jeff Limke, Len Kody, Mike Bullock and Joe Gentile, the Air Fighters will once again earn their wings by making the skies safe for liberty!
Marvel has announced, that following Amazing Spider-Man #600, the company will debut Web of Spider-Man in October.Â This will be a new ongoing title that will feature Spider-Girl stories in the issue as well.
â€œWith the â€˜Gauntletâ€™ storyline starting up and many classic adversaries of Spider-man coming back to the book, we wanted to find a place to tell you more about them without it eating up too many pages of the thrice-weekly Amazing Spider-Man,â€ explained series editor Steve Wacker. â€œSo while were tossing ideas around on where to best put that stuff, beleaguered assistant Tom Brennan came up with the notion to bring back the â€œWebâ€ title as a way to give a home to stories to people caught up in Peteâ€™s life. Starting with the first issueâ€™s Kaine story by JM DeMatteis and then continuing onto stories about Electro, the Rhino, the Lizard and many more by Web-Head Fred van Lente and regular Spidey artist Barry Kitson, the stories here directly impact what weâ€™re doing in Amazing Spider-Man!â€
The company is packing a lot into this first $3.99 issue, including a zombie variant cover – because we all know people are clamoring for more zombie variants.
