Where are the French and United Statien of North America ones?

Pilasy:La Voix d'un homme

Honestly, the Spanish colonial empire was more impressive than the French during its heyday. The Napoleonic Empire was impressive though, but like the Mongol and Greek it didn't last beyond a generation.

US only had Phillipines and a few islands to speak of as their colonies, you could add Liberia but that's pushing. It wasn't even taken seriously by the European powers until the 20th century when proper empires ended.

It might be the first time I've bought a new Superman comic in a while. They have solid creative teams (Lobdell is finally gone) and the previews look promising.

Plus normally I'm not one for putting art above the story, but Kuder's art is amazing and up at Chiang and Capello's standard from what I've seen.

@paracelsus-presume the cake has to do with the referendum for same sex marriage across the border, otherwise the timing seem very coincidental?

Oh for f**k's sake, really DC? Isn't the whole damn point of Batman that he's a normal human?

Not for a long while anyway.

No. The Russos are not really fans of the fodder army concept.

They'll probably use minor Avengers villains for fight scenes.

So he's stalked by a man eating shark after a tsunami in the middle of an armed robbery? That is one unlucky guy.

@w0nd: Since teen/young adult stories seem to be a popular theme from your selection, have you read:

New 52 Shazam by Geoff Johns?

Habringer by Valiant? (Anything Valiant actually I'd recommend, seriously it's so good)

Young Avengers? (On a related note, there's Avengers Academy which I'm not really familiar with)

Avengers Arena? (It may seem cliche but it's really fun as any of the characters could be knocked off and they usually get developed before doing so. Some of the Runaways are in it actually)

X-men? (You could start at Claremont or Morrison depending how far back you want to go or read Ultimate X-men until the universe went downhill. Bendis' current run is a bit meh imo, it's very Whedonish if you're into that sort of dialogue.)

For non-superhero, I mainly read East of West and Saga but I'm not sure how related that'd be to your usual reading.

@darthvxder: I know, but it's annoying since both atheists and theists tend to do it.
