There have been a lot of different incarnations of the Titans in the DC Universe, from sidekick to New Teen to ‘No Longer In Existence.’  With the Titans’ back story returning to continuity, I was reminded of the last time that the adolescent heroes reformed, pre-Flashpoint.  Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review of Teen Titans #1 awaits!

There is a truism in the world of Hero Histories: The shorter the tenure, the simpler to put together.  When considering the history of a character dating back to the dawn of superheroic history, it is a very daunting matter to recount the entirety of their history, as even a fictional universe will have been through a lot of changes in 80 years.  Today’s entrant has had at least four notable iterations in her time, but today we focus specifically on the second of her major historical eras.  Some might call it the Silver Age version; an inaccurate designation, as

I have several of the Ame-Comi line of figures, but none of them come close to all the skin that the Wonder Girl Ame-Comi statue features. I’ll let you take the jump for the full on Wonder Girl action, plus a look at Wonder Woman, that shows even more skin.

Or – “Make A Hawk A Dove, End A War With Love, Make A Lah Farnah FOO!” Sorry, I was never really clear on what that last lyric was.  For months now, Gail Simone has seemingly been building up to something epic with her work on Wonder Woman, and it seems that we’re finally going to get a glimpse of what it is.  Last issue, yet another strange creature arrived to challenge the Amazing Amazon, but this time, the story ends differently…

I love it when a plan comes together.  Wait, there’s a plan? One of the great things about the Blue Beetle series is how the writers who have taken on the challenge of this series are able to bring the collected group of heroes together to fight a common enemy.  While the big bad doesn’t get his comeuppance in this issue, it’s good to see everyone come out of the woodwork to give aid to our favorite beetle in blue.

Or – “Shvaughn?  Is That You?” My new manager Deon (who is wrong only half as often as Tom Grice, but only about 1/3 as pretty) and I got to talking the other day about the work of Jim Shooter, a writer whose work bounces all over the spectrum.  For every Harbinger, Rai, or ‘Adventure Comics’-era Legion, there is a ‘Hank Pym punches Janet’ moment, a ‘Shadow State,’ or “MORE GORE FOR THE ORG!!!”  Whichever Jim Shooter you get writes tightly plotted yarns with nice character bits, but the overall effect of the writing varies wildly, as anyone who ever

Or – “It’s Always The Cute Ones…” Megan Morse, also known as Miss Martian, has been something of an enigma among the Junior Justice League. Introduced during the “One Year Later” gap caused by 52, she has been pleasant, funny, bright and generally nice to be around. So, naturally, she’s a stone killer in disguise. Ever since it was revealed that she’s NOT one of J’onn J’onnz’ peaceful green Martians, but comes from the vicious line of white Martians, I’ve waited for her to grow fangs and try to eat people. After interacting with her own future self, and getting
