I would have rated it higher Corey. It could be that I was really psyched to see this storyline resolved but I really enjoyed this issue tremendously. There was a lot of ground to cover from the previous writing team's departure and the team who replaced them did an amazing job. So much happened in this issue and even for an annual story it felt like a lot. There were some really great action scenes and intense moments to read. It was really fun.

I liked Batman's depiction in this. I actually thought he was less arrogant than in other depictions I've seen him. A lot of other interpretations give him a "this is my city and what I say goes" type of mentality but in this issue, he was very reasonable even taking a knock out blow from Batwoman in an attempt to work together with her. It was definitely a really enjoyable storyline and my number 1 pick for this week.

This issue and the Riddler Issue were my favorites of villains month so far. It's really great to see intelligent criminals get a chance to shine. ^_^

Supes was Severely out of character, I could at least tolerate that when he is YOUNG but now as an adult he couldn't get passed his Pride to Just stand done? Please.


That bothered me too. Especially the


He sounded so rediculous

Yeah I agree. In that scene I thought Wraith was acting more like Superman would than Superman himself.

I still really loved the issue was great. ^_^

I'm surprised you didn't go for the more obvious matchup,

Hawkeye vs Green Arrow (Battle of the Archers)


Black Widow vs Black Canary

It's an interesting poll though. I think depending on the situation either character can win. Black Widow has the close proximity advantage but Arrow has the range.

Just because DC is announcing a new series with Helena Wayne as Huntress doesn't mean she is the same woman in the mini-series. As of issue #5 of the Huntress mini-series (the most recent issue) it still hasn't been confirmed that the Huntress in that series is Helena Wayne. Given the way alternate worlds work, it is very possible there are two of them. We'll have to read the last issue which comes out next week to find out exactly what is going on.

Does anyone know what issue the picture of Wolverine and Jean kissing is from?

I think that it is too early to call DC's reboot a success. Since the first issues are coming out, people are just curious about the new direction. I suspect that once the curiosity dies down and it will probably drop for a lot of the second issues, DC might be in a difficult position.

I hope that Marvel doesn't consider something like this but if it does then it would be smart to wait a few months to see how things play out for DC.

:-D Yay was really rooting for Rachel to win. I wasn't sure she would be able to pull it off. Yeah Shelly voting for her was a real shocker after Rachel's "I can't hear your motherly advice" exit remark. I think Rachel was surprised by it too. ^_^ She really lucked out. ^_^ I'm really glad she was able to win though.

Just saw tonight's what a twist. ^_^ I thought for sure Cassi was going to win it but I really glad Brendan got the votes.  ^_^ Brendan and Rachel together again is massively awesome. :-D
