Easily the best film in Phase 2 0

Where do I begin.....This is the Phase 2 film we've all wanted The writers may have been comedy writers, but this...this....this was better than the first one. It is also a film that really felt like it is trying to set something up. Not only Avengers 2, but another future movie. It will also have reprecussion that will be felt wide, as oppose to the somewhat compact ones in Iron Man 3 and Thor Dark World. The twists were pretty unexpected, and the mid credit scene the best since Thanos in Ave...

2 is better than 1 0

Everyone is hating these days Man of Steel, Iron Man 3 and, from what I have heard, Wolverine were all decent films that get a lot of flack, for the simple reason they are not The Avengers.Well to that, I say that not every film can be that good, this film is good.It's better than the original if you ask me.The Final Battle was better, the emotions were more real, and you really got into the characters heads. As always, Loki was great that way, but so was Thor. And the Collector.....quite a goo...

DC's stand in for 2013's Hero Film 0

2013 continues the Hero Wars between movie studios. Iron man 3, Man of Steel and the Wolverine all give decent tellings (the last two being vast improvements on earlier ones), though it is really a war between Iron Man and Man of Steel.Iron Man 3, I admit, probably did better story wise, and sales wise, but for a debuting hero who did not have a perfect casted person like Downey to play him, Man of Steel does a good job.It sets foundations for a world where Superman and Batman can exist via cam...

This is how you start an event 0

After nearly two years of building, Trinity War begins with a bang. Twists and turns are filled in this issue, with every little detail since at least issue six of this brilliant series coming to light.Marvel had no such buildup for their last events. AVX, AoU, Fear itself, Civil War, where was the buildup? At least Infinity has some of it..But here, you have epic scenes, powerful and unexpected twists, great imagery and perhaps even greater mysteries....

A trope done right 0

Wolverine Publicity: The appearance of Wolverine everywhere. Used also to describe Batman now a days. This idea is often used to draw in audiences to books with low reader counts (like Vibe). But this time around, they used this tendency. After all, he doesn't really appear, but his image does. So, the cover isn't as lying as some of these publicity titles. I wish Vibe got more readers. At least Geoff will use him in JLA regardless. Just like ol' Firestorm.Like the reveal for the other JLD memb...

Fanfiction useful 0

I like it. I got it for free, and have used it for my thought process. Is it a perfect set? No: seeing as Deadpool and Cable did not appear, and last I checked Rachel is not magnetic. But, it gives you a lot of information, so it's the best free comic I've ever gotten...

Good long tale that does not do for trade 0

Writing for Trade: writing stories that wrap up in 6 odd issues.Loved by Marvel, less common in DC.This is definitely not written for trade.The story features lengthy overlying plot, that I don't always catch if I don't look here. James Robinson manages to recreate characters who normally would be overshadowed in historic value by the big four old comic golden heroes: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Zoidberg/Captain AmericaHis writing style means that you would not get a truly satisfactory r...

Begins to Reascend 0

This series....needs a new writer. The Legion guy is good, only in the Legion. However, in this issue he did a decent enough job, and the characters feel a bit more......themselves. The return of the Power Window probably helps. If DC wants to keep this title going, they need a new writer. While it is picking up, it would be best if someone who is good with writing those two takes hold. Paltimoni is probably too busy, and Gail has three titles around once Sonja starts up.DC and Marvel.....what ...

A solid start 0

Gail Simone is a writer I enjoy the stylings of. As she finally moves to more than just Batgirl, we get to see her play with other ends of the New 52. And she decides to focus on something different. Something between the lights of heroes, and the shadows of villains. A gray team who attempts to fix problems, but may just do worse. While I'd prefer to see her do the Birds of Prey again, for all I know she might be able to reintroduce Sin or Misfit or someone else here. For all we know, these gu...

And so the story continues 0

In about 4 or so months, The Trinity War begins. To do that, Geoff and Jeff need to set up the teams in conflict with one another. The Trinity of Sin may be a major part, but they need to come into conflict some other way. And who better to begin anger than the mysterious intruder who just stole from the Batman himself, and who seems to be working with DCU A list bad guy....well you can probably guess if you see the character list or read the actual story. I happened to find the characterizati...

Gail plays the Risk card 0

To be a comic book writer, you can't just write the same stories again and again. Fans will get tired of Captain America hitting Batroc the Leaper with his shield if you do it for 50 years straight: but if Batroc steals his shield and sells it to the North Koreans, that is a interesting twist. This story is in fact a way to point out that Batarangs are, in deed, sharp. A single loss of focus, and these tools of the king of though shall not kill, become lethal. And Alysia Yeoh was a boy.....er ...

Johns does as Johns Does 0

Geoff Johns, like all writers, has a certain writing fetish. And this issue has his. Geoff is a huge fan of the silver age, he loves to write characters made during this era. The use of Platinum shows this.And while the one above me may complain about how connected this story is, I have to disagree. Zatanna and the JLD Don't seem to be working now a days. And I do see points from the other DC verse via Flash and Nightwing.Does the new Atom remind you of Kitty Pryde or is it just me? Wonder how s...

A better Teen Titan comic 0

Does Teen Titans always give the best out of DC? NoIs this issue decent, yes.I'll admit I am not picking up a lot of titles who are Death of the Family related. My main comparison is Batgirl.However Scott shows off all the sides to the story quite well. he shows the Joker's twisted plan, he shows the teen coming togetherHis tie in is good and he shows some current teen pop culture references....

Two atmospheres of comic 0

This is AVXThis is where the Avengers and X-Men need to be trying to rip each other apart.Or blast each other with magic energy like Hope and Scarlet did.Squirrel Girl hijacking reality with puppets was a bit disturbing.Though credit to Hawkeye having the dream of Spiderwoman vs the X-Ladies. Nice touch. Someone do send me the image.Edit, found it.I do appreciate the humor though this issue was filled with: Level 15 guilt tripper Captain America vs Level 16 rebel Hope was nice for example.All in...

First Superman title doesn't dissapoint 0

I admit it, this is my first Superman comic, and how do I enjoy it.First, while I was never a Wildstorm guy, I happen to think Helspont works quite well as a superman villain, due to the simple fact that he is strong enough to actually fight him. As the strongest hero, Superman needs the strongest villains in comparison or at least the kind who can counter his strength otherwise. Lex works well, so does Doomsday, but here we have someone with Lex's minions and planning with the power level of Do...

Its not perfect, but this issue is the first block to the future 0

You can't have a civil war without build up. Tension between the North and south existed since even before 1775.What Geoff was doing with Graves wasn't to make a lasting villain, but create the first spark. it created the tension on the team that would lead to a splitThe tension in the team that being attacked by their ghosts and fears is a good way to start.Also, the Kiss. If you read to the end, you see why that has importance. Its not the romance that is important, its the fact that it looks ...

Is this the last of Harvest? 0

So many questions remain....What is Tim hiding?What is Skitter's fate?What the freaking **** is Harvest.The comic has potential, no matter how many bash the series. Will the series continue to work, and will it ever get a featured Review?Now here's the question....can the next issue hold its own, for while I like Dinosaurs, and it could be a interesting way to tie in G.I combat......it could just fail eppically....

Has potential 0

......haven't done a review in a while because people always flame what I say, but I think this story has potential. Young Heroes are always hard to work with.......people seem to still think all there stories are Teen Titans after Infinite Crisis.I won't say the Culling was the Court of Owls...or all that riveting, but each comic will have good arcs, and bad arcs. The culling was......in between.Now however, the story may continue as a new team enters the DC universe....can the new heroes make ...

The return of the old guard 0

Basically, if you guys came to see Kon-El, Dick and Donna as the trinity....your not reading the right comic.The comic shows the original three dying, along with the gods and nearly everyone else.A curious note is that Diana's gods are RomanWe see Helena Wayne and Kara-Zor El fly through a portal, and end up in World's FinestBut then we see the rise of some of the Golden Age heroes; Jay, Alan, ect. Now, here is a question. Jay played a role of importance in Blackest Night, if I recall. So......h...

The powerful return of Power Girl 0

The comic was quite a nice read, particularly if you have already read Earth 2.....This series really does a good job at showing them off. I never read Mr. Terrific or Huntress, but from my understanding of the characters it shows them off in a interesting light where we see her note how young this Kal-El Is. Wonder if Helena will get a chance to comment on her father/half brother/adopted brothersThe only reason its not five stars.....POWER GIRL LACKS SOMETHING. Two things actually....visible th...

Better than what I expected 0

I've spent a lot of time, based on my recent intro to comics, hunting down issues that are good. After all, can't just buy Hawk and Dove's can I?You know, as a Static fan I heard this series mentioned alongside his comic...and that made me wonder if it was as...well ruined.So far, I see no evidence for that.Batgirl is a good comic, a fine New 52 book. The only complaint I have is the fact she's not the teenaged version I normally see in cartoons.What, I grew up with the Timverse and The Batman.....

You know, the art was off today...must be a different penciler. Seeing as they were trapped in a water like space, or Lilith's mind, that can actually be looked at as canonical art shifting.Sort of neatAnd what a smorgosboard of stuff we got today.

What happened to her?We see a lot of character development, with Cassie's power shown t...

Better..... 0

....but still not the same action we saw while fighting Darkseid.The green arrow bit is interesting, it shows off the ideas of the Justice League, and uses some DCaU elements of the Green Arrow character.Though the good elements are what happens behind the action of Green Arrow.We see the Talons attacking the Justice League, establishing the series timeplace in the storyWe see Amazo, a true foe to the Justice League, unlike SporeAnd we see that the Martian Manhunter nearly did join the Justice L...

A super remake 0

Like last chapter, this chapter continues to show that Supergirl is not a gullible moron who just takes what Superman says for granted, regardless of truth.She goes to check it out for herself, but gets intercepted...and seems to forget that she can fly....by a space guy who seems to be using the commercial idea of space travel, to make an antagonist.While he does seem to be evil, he's not doing a good job at it. The Brain was workable, but fire shooting butterflies are just lame.....Lame lame l...

No one likes the calm before the storm 0

Good thing I only borrowed this from a friend, I'm generally a DC person, but AvsX has gotten my interest.Here, I'm seeing everyone complaining about it, but did you guys really expect they'd start killing killing each other so quickly? They have to build it up, did the Civil war start in 1 comic, did they go straight from Nitro to Ragnarok killing Goliath?No, they had to build it up.While I will keep an half eye on the series as it goes along, I'll probably get a trade paperback of the series l...

Static; a Memorial 0

A way to end a series killed by bad writers, this comic really should have been earlier on, it would have taken care of the problem of how the old writers did not go and explain Static's past for new fans.However, the use of various old Static looks, his original and the one that made him famous in the Cartoon series (And should have been used in the series), is good, as well as using images of old Milestone faves Icon, Holocaust, and even Dusk.....the last one in particular was unexpected.Liste...

Shippūden like filler 0

Naruto, the character whose series I am using for comparrisonWhy does this review have a Naruto based title?It simple really, for having relevant filler.Filler, its something no one likes yet helps flesh out the universes. Some fillers such, some are actually good.For example, the original series of Naruto's anime's filler arcs are generally bad (Tea country excluded), while Shippūden's fillers are generally good, because they expand on the plot of the real series.In this comic, we see Static ha...

A milestone event 0

The comic has its main points for introducing Hardware and Technique in battle and for the end of the very erratic storyline that doomed this comic.Its look at the psychology of heroes, such as Hardware, is also good.However, Hardware and Technique probably confused the heck out of comic fans who are new to them. They probably more expected Gear to appear than those two.However, all in all its one of the better comics this series, and I can only hope that Static has more appearances later.For th...

Been a while since I got oneAs it was, I liked the comic. Sure, it was not the best, but it did add a lot of light to the story. It explained the giants, the giant vampire, cyborg...thing, and gave Godiva a bit of chance to redeem herself.Of course, plenty of innuendo.....but then again in this modern age, its everywhereAs it is, its helping me to keep the JLI series on my to read list...

Okay, I will admit that this was not the best Teen Titan comic...but blame Superboy for it. No, not Superboy the character, but his comic itself, as you need to have read pretty far into it to understand it.As to me, I only have Superboy 1, which is because I am alloted only four comics a week, and as Justice League and Teen Titans are perenial picks for myself (Static shock would be too if the shop would restock a #6...or should I just grab 7,), that leaves me only 14 other comics a month, assu...

Sometimes the bridge to greatness is shakyThis comic is like thatIt lacks the high action that it had in the first issues. Personally, JLI is a more entertaining read than this one if all the chapters have this, despite Batman's mutteringThe spore character is a bit.....well he's not really the kind of villain the JL is supposed to fight. A solo hero could have handled him, and his sort of science based form means that even two of the cancelled guys; Mr. Terrific and Static, could have taken him...

Plays with the strengths of the New 52 0

The New 52 continues to show itself in form in this issue, showing off a world where heroes do not just become friends, a world where the Government does not like heroes, and a world where people make fun on a surprisingly kick ass Aquaman.Perhaps this is why Namor generally keeps to himself?Anyway, the one thing I have to wonder is, why Cyborg? What about Cyborg had him become the new Justice League Member.Cyborg's a good hero, but why make him a Justice League? I mean, if they wanted an Africa...

The New 52 is meant to make DC more accessible for new readers, and I say it has based off this comic.During the fight, each lantern corps demonstrates their unique qualities, from Indigo channeling to Red firebreath and Star Sapphire Crystal.Also shown was the Blue Lantern Corps...one of my personal favorites.It also has despair....with Ganthet being reduced to an emotionless state by his brothers.R.I.P Ganthet....the guardians will pay!...
