@captainmarvel4ever: I think many peoples issues with Lobdell ( Mine included ) is he just will not admit he makes mistakes and he seems so condescending and smug in interview towards the fans. If your an Allen Moore level writer I will look past those things but when you have not written anything worth while in the past 20 years tone it down. I mean Lobdell has ideas but he does not flesh them out and he simply has no clue who to write a teen aged hero.

I love Johns writing and I am very hard on him because I have been a fan of his work for many years now and I know how great he can be. The Metal Men issue as well as Throne of Atlantis storyline where the best stuff he has written with Justice League. All and all for Johns his new 52 JL run has been hit or miss with me. I'm on the opposite side of the fence with you when it comes to Forever Evil I truly think that it is the worst event Johns has ever written. The premise that " Evil is relative" has zero impact in the new 52 universe because since it started it has been a darker universe with most characters morality shown in shades of grey. For this story line to have a lasting effect it the universe it takes place in should not be as cynical as the new 52 is.

I do have high hopes for his Superman he did state it is a restart for Superman in the new 52. Something I was excited to hear.

@captainmarvel4ever: I would love to see a comic like that, Kind of like the Avengers A.I that is going on over at Marvel. I just hope DC has a plan for the Metal Men and keeps them light hearted and fun. I do not want to see the dark and gritty version of them like I have seen so many former fun character become in the new 52.

I'm just happy that my last Justice League story since I'm going to drop it as soon as Lex joins was a fun story with some amazing characters and some of the sharper writing Johns has had on this title. I think I might try Johns Superman in hopes he can fix that very broken section of the DC nu universe.

@captainmarvel4ever: I meet more the tone of the book, This is similar to FF where its fun even when they are talking about darker or difficult subject matter. I really do not know if Lemire or the return of Peter will have that tone.

Haha yeah it is pretty similar, what can I say I find this style of comic very refreshing for an industry that is getting burnt out with dark/gritty or this ridiculous concept of realism in a superhero comic.

Yeah, despite Peter being back I doubt we will have much of any fun. Still, there are some fun comics out, like Larfleeze (Deja Vu again) and She Hulk. Plus even the mainstream comics are becoming more fun. After all in Justice League we got the Metal Men back, and they are just as fun as they were in the 60's. Nothing like seeing Lead fall in love with a soda machine to put a smile on your face :)

I agree I have found Spider-Man a pretty depressing comic for years now. Its just build him up to tear him down and I just can't deal with the angst much longer. If that does not change in the first story line and there is no hope I will drop it. She-Hulk has been amazing so far and with Ms. Marvel has been a nice replacement for FF.

I really hope DC takes a chance on a Metal Men book that was some of Johns best writing nice the new 52 started, they have little to offer me lately with all there weeklies and crossovers but I would buy a Metal Men book in a second.

I so hope there will be more couples getting married in comics as a whole. Plus this seems like it could be awesome it has a great writer attached.

Flooding the market with weekly titles is very risky and that is what DC is doing now. I do not know why they feel the need for this and cannibalizing your own market with 3 weekly series at the same time is not smart. Fans are not walking cash machines.

Amazing! Can not wait to see what Ellis does and where he takes the pieces Ross built.

@lifeboy: Actually it was reported that the artist that won the Harley Quinn comic was already a professional artist and working for DC. So it looks like it was never going to be a amateur contest as it was advertised as.

This book is amazing, I really hope Marvel and DC take notes and have more books with this tone.
