Honestly, I'm more excited about the Shazam movie than the Justice League movie... DC doesn't seem to have any idea what they are doing so I'm not expecting much from the Justice League movie, sadly

@jayc1324: Where is proof that she cant? Wonder Woman is very worthy to lift the hammer
I agree. If DC has any two heroes that can lift the hammer, it would have to be Superman and Wonder Woman. So she may fare pretty well against Thor.
If there was any doubt before, after seeing all the asskickery in TWS, Cap clearly curbstombs. Sure Clooney Batman took some hits from Freeze, but he wouldn't land a hit on Cap regardless.
I think Thor may very well be able to defeat either Superman or Doomsday. Even Superman may have difficulty with Hulk as well, but his arsenal is so much larger he could handle him.
It would happen something like this.
Round 1 goes to team 2 - Thor and Superman tends to hold back, but the deciding factor is Superman's magic weakness
Round 2 goes to team 1, reason being is after a loss in round 1, Superman stops holding back first.
Round 3 goes to team 1 - Hulk and Thor say screw this, and start fighting each other.
it may surprise you, but I agree. I would pull Supes and Batman out of the JLA, as they both hold the team back in different ways. DC would probably do it too, but sadly the sales would plummet.
all Superman needs is a depowerement. He can still be the strongest hero in the DCU without being put in a pedestal, far far up in the sky
Or maybe other characters need an empowerment. Fortunately for the most part, characters like Darkseid are a Justice League enemy not a Superman enemy these days.
Every now and then you see hints of putting Wonder Woman as a solid second behind Superman (and at the start of the New 52 at one point arguably ahead), but over time they always seem to do away with that.
# For a TV show, I'd have to vote Burn Notice. I could see some cool stuff happening with that. I'd pick Dexter as my second choice, but the overall format to Burn Notice would lend itself to a comic really well already.
For a movie, Back To The Future (or has that been done?)
@dcfox: I would say if after reading the second issue you still don't like the first issue then maybe this series is not for you. I found that not only was the second issue much more straightforward in storytelling, but it should answer most of your biggest questions about the first issue as well.
After reading the first issue, I had a ton of questions and it was clear the second issue would be make or break for the series -- I liked the first issue, but I liked it a lot more after the second issue made the storyline much more coherent too.
Well I did really enjoy the first issue. It has a very unique approach to storytelling, and the art is spot on. I tried to read it last night but I was dead tired and wasn't really making sense of it, but I just read it again and I'm looking forward to the next issue.
Whether this is a 3.5 or a 5, to me really depends on the next couple of issues. It is a solid start but at the same time, I feel it's the following issues that will really make or break it.
