100% Robin, 89% Mr. Fantastic, 88% Alfred, 87%...Spider-Ham?

I wonder if I take this again in a year whether I'd have similar results.

There's nothing "-ish" about this painting. That's Ariel, no doubt about it. Very nice.

As usual most the covers tell us nothing...except Batman is everywhere

Haha. But really. It's actually ridiculous.

If nothing else, this proves that Commissioner Gordon survives DotF, as does Joker, or at least his legacy.

Also, I think this may be my least favorite Starfire costume yet.

The Court of Owls cover is awesome.

@Teerack: I'm inclined to agree with you. This isn't the most flattering picture of Raven I've ever seen (and that's before the rather absurd costume is taken into account). But it's just one frame, so it's hard to say whether it's just a little off for the artist or if her proportions truly have been intentionally altered.

I think I'd have to see her without that...mask?...before making a final judgment on the new outfit. Certainly with it, I'm rather put off.

This (and the Dark Knight bit) is the first fan fiction I've ever read. Quite enjoyed it; an excellent origin story, given the era and such. As a fan of Marvel 1602 I'm quite on-board with the concept.

By the way, if you're ever interested in an editor, I'd be happy to offer my services (I noticed minor tense things, primarily). Regardless, loving the story so far!

Well, I'm currently reading 3 Bat books and 0 Avengers books, so...

@CerealKiller: Well, you'd think, but apparently all comic women's boobs are magical, hurt-proof, and generate their own gravity.

Oh, I'm sure it's terrible, but this is hardly the worst thing I've seen in comics. I guarantee you nothing in this book could offend me more than the few pages I read of The Boys.

That said, maybe it's not so bad -- just seeing this cover was good for a hearty laugh.

@wessaari: True, but I've appreciated Snyder's writing quite a bit and I don't think a good writer would definitively kill Joker right now. He may write it as a likely death, but there should be a feasible way for Joker to have survived, for the express reason that he will need to come back some day. I don't think he needs his face back, though. For one thing, he always covers it with makeup anyway, and for another, there's a lot of great potential with harlequin masks in the future. He could pull a Deadpool and be hideous, but be known for the mask he wears instead of what lies beneath.

Alrighty. I tried this out with my followers (that is, I didn't attach it to a board) and I liked how it went, so I'm going to open it up to everyone by tossing this out on the murky waters of the Off-Topic board. What say y'all to a bit of a "getting to know one another" deal? I've linked to my personal blog, and my profile image and avatar are both, well, actually me (this is subject to change), so at the very least you know I'm a guy, and that I write way too much. You also know I hate Avengers Arena, I guess, and that I really, really like X-23. I don't know what else you may or may have picked up on without going so far as to read my "About Me," and even then, probably not a lot.

Point is, is there anything you'd like to know about me?

No? Cool.

Yes? Not so fast there, kiddos. This isn't going to be an "ask me" thread. I'll answer, sure, but here's the kicker: whatever question you ask, you must also answer about yourself. Because the real reason for this is that I want to get to know you better, but I'm just veiling that in narcissism. Don't tell anyone.

Or you could just tell me about yourself, if you're into that sort of thing.

Anyhow, I'll start, and hopefully you'll follow along so I don't look like an idiot (pretty please?). You could start by answering these questions below, even though I'm giving my answers out for free. Some folks aren't so brave as all that, but I like to know with whom I'm speaking. And most of the people I follow haven't posted (seriously) in the IRL photo thread, so...

What's your actual name? Adam Keith Bogert.

What's your name here all about? It's...it's my first two initials and my last name. A. K. Bogert. Nothing spectacular, but it works.

Do you exist elsewhere on the Internet? I've been known to tweet, tumble, read, and play, among things. I have a Facebook but I don't add people unless we actually know each other. That doesn't mean "IRL," per se, but it does mean we've had a few really meaningful conversations and I don't hate you.

What are you most excited about right now? I'll be starting graduate studies at The Ohio State University in August...where I'll be paid to study video games.

What are you least excited about right now? Having to wait six months until August. Also, Avengers Arena.

What's are you most afraid of? No one will respond to this. Just kidding. But when asked in Kingdom Hearts, I answered "Being indecisive," and that pretty much holds true all these years later.
