Is this just in America? free comic book day that is..

Posted by Lvenger

That is an awesome image. The battle royale between the Justice League looks brilliant. Who is that other Green Lantern? Are Aquaman and Mera fighting? Is that Shazam or Black Adam? I'm going to be really interested to see what happens in this book.

@PsychoKnights: He metamorphed! (lol)!

Posted by evilvegeta74

@kennyshat: Thats the same thing I'm wondering!

Posted by Supreme Marvel

Black Adam or Osaris looks awesome! Probably to early for Osaris so it has to be Teth.

Posted by noj

@PsychoKnights: Thats Element Woman. I believe she was introduced in Flashpoint

Posted by sethysquare
Thats elemental woman, not metamorpho. lame.


Posted by TheOptimist

Element Woman = teh rulez lol. Love that character.

This spread looks awesome. So much better not fuzzified. Can't wait to see what causes all of this to go down.

FCBD is going to rock this year.

Posted by never_again

I love it, whats the betting its all got to do with what Batman is carrying.

Posted by WildStyle

It seems like they're fighting over whatever is strapped on Batman's back. Whatever the reason is, I'm down. I'm a sucker for stories that show heroes scrapping with each other.

lady metamorpho, and is that black adam?

Posted by Outside_85

Why is this only handed out at comicbook stores??

Well Gary Frank said they were bringing back Teth.

It's Element Woman from Flashpoint.

Posted by CombatSpoon86

Nothing screams better than a free comic

Posted by JamDamage

@Kallarkz: that's Black Adam. I don't like the vampire collar.

Posted by Mbecks14

This is more exciting than the Avengers movie!

Anyone else notice that Cyborg has 2 left hands?

Posted by Bestostero


While they did manage to diverse the team a bit...why is the male to female ratio still so off?

Posted by jubilee042

Even wearing a tight metal suit cyborgs has a big butt and highly focused butt.

Edited by Adnan it just me or does The Atom have boobs?

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

The New 52 thing I'm DEFINITELY getting tomorrow. The Super Sampler too perhaps. The rest I wanna be pleasantly surprised by and just take a gander. Sooo ready for FCBD to come!

Posted by Gambit1024

Which GL is that supposed to be?

Posted by MonkeyToe

@Gambit1024: To me it looks like Midnighter as a GL

Neither do I. I think that Black Adam had the best costume out of the Shazam family pre-reluanch, and they shouldn't have changed it.

Posted by Mumbles

can we ban niukk for trying to plug his weak sales advertising? this is the 2nd thread i notice his junk reply.

also, sweetness on 4page layout mr.lee

Posted by SHAZAM117

Epic-ness......Just Epic-ness!!!

Posted by Icon

Nerdgasm. That is fricking beautiful.

Edited by Or35ti

BEAUTIFUL! So many questions tho... and what the heck is Mera doing? haha

Can't wait to pick this up!

Posted by zackattack529

@Gambit1024: most likely a differnt a new greenlantern specifically for the title..because people have complained that hal jordan should not freely be working with the justice league As a green lantern since he is no longer an OFFICIAL green lantern in his own title. so it makes sense theyre using a differnt one in the future.

Posted by zackattack529

@WildStyle: you must be a proud customer of that lame AvX series then as well? lol

Posted by BigBDawg

I think we also got Vibe on this... but what I wanna know is... will we actually see the Justice League expand?! XD

  • Looks like John Stewart became an Alpha Lantern.
  • Glad to see that Hawkman has his mace back (although rather small).
  • Black Adam looks like Dracula with that collared cape. D.C is trying too hard to reinvent their character costumes; the amulets that hold the cape to the costume are clearly an inspiration from Marvel designs. E.g. Thor (Modern day costume), Doctor Doom, Doctor Strange, etc.
Posted by Skaddix

Interesting Wonder why Aquaman and Wonder Woman are fighting and who the Green Lantern is.

I sense some badassery in John's future

Posted by KnightRise

black adam definitely looks cooler without a cape
