I totally get the lament of all the other commenters about this show being cancelled. I feel the same way about Young Justice. But don't you think it could be for reasons other than Cartoon Network not understanding what they have with Green Lantern? They're a business, they're out to make money. If a show isn't getting the ratings they need to bring in the advertising dollars needed to pay for the show to be made, then it needs to be cancelled. A large percentage of viewers are now downloading shows like this for 'free' and that takes away the necessary revenue for a show like this to survive. Until that changes this will just keep happening with any new shows they might introduce.

The K'rot similarities to Rocket Raccoon are really not that big a deal. You need to look at the bright side of things. It was Keith Giffen that dragged Rocket Raccoon out of obscurity and back into the spotlight during Annihilation. He did a great job with him then so I'm sure K'rot will be equally as charming.

Any idea if there's a glitch with the Batmania quest set? The last quest set that I need to complete is to watch the video where Sara and Tony discuss Batman, Inc. and I did that but nothing happened. Unless maybe there's more than one video where they discuss Batman Inc.......

I might be going out on a limb here, but I feel like Jeph Loeb is injecting a little bit of his late son into this book. His name was Sam too and he died of cancer, and in the preview pages for issue two it looked like Sam Alexander was in a hospital. And I don't think that's a bad thing. I find that when writers inject a little bit of their personal story into a book it usually turns out great. The old adage, "write what you know", and all that. So it could be a really good, really emotional story. I'm intrigued...

I've almost completed the Monster Mash quest set, I just need to finish "Strange Crew". Which I think I'm supposed to do by finding the concept pages for the classic horror ideas ghosts, werewolves, vampires, and zombies. I found a concept page for ghosts, but I can't find the other ones. Do they exist? Or am I barking (howling?) up the wrong tree?

Hello all! I've been trying to complete the Animal Control quest in the Spidey Sense quest set but I'm hitting a wall. I have Lizard, Doctor Octopus, Chameleon, Scorpion, Rhino, and Vulture. But I need three more. Any hints?

Moondragon and Phyla-Vell aren't in this film, he won't be dealing with any gay characters for this film.

Best original graphic novel EVER!!! I know so many people that have been lured into comics with this book. Actually, anything Brian K. Vaughn is a good way to get people into comics, but this self-contained story is a low commitment way for people to check out the medium. One of my favourite books of all time. Love love LOVE!!! Oh, and I may be totally off and making assumptions, but because the artist is from Quebec City, I think his last name is pronounced ON-REE-SHOW. But I could be way off on that.

@CaptainGenisVell: X-23 totally "pulled a Hit-Girl" in her limited series from 2005 written by Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost and pencilled by Billy Tan. It's a great mini-series that tells her origin story but it's worth the read just to see her play the cute little girl assassin. Maybe that's where Mark Millar got the idea...

I was too young to read this when it came out (only 4 years old), but I did realize later that my first introduction to Marvel characters came as a result of it. My first superhero action figure was the Spider-Man toy that they released to coincide with this series. I think I had the Doctor Doom and Captain America figures as well, but I remember the Spider-Man figure in particular. I played with that figure constantly! By the time I would eventually lose him, he was missing a thumb and had most of his webbing pattern rubbed off. But he was still awesome!
