I enjoyed it. Definitely not the best. Didn't really do much to move the season plot forward but gave some needed character development to the side characters.

My predictions for Wells and the prison is he wants all the villains there and will release them at once for some reason or another at the end of the season. Maybe that will necessitate the need for the full CW Justice League or super team up (Arrow, Atom, Flash, Firestorm, New Canary, Katana, etc).

All the covers for these events seem to have certain different elements (ie the black helmet Novas on Infinity Gauntlet). As much as I'd love a revisit to Annihilation, I think they'd just replace Richard Rider with Same Alexander or attempt to ruin it in some other way.

Wait, Beast had a story arc?

You should do Galactus versus popular character (ie Wolverine, Spider-Man, Iron Man, etc) one week just for laughs.

The problem is Cyclops, being one of my favorite characters, has powers that make no sense. They're blasts that aren't lasers, but actual pushing force yet can be reflected by mirrors. Sometimes they go everywhere and sometimes they don't. His eyes occasionally smoke in the cold even though they aren't heated. And he occasionally runs out despite not being able to turn it off. So seeing as how he defies any possibility of real physics, Nightwing and Robin who operate almost fully in physics (except for their utility belts) have no chance.

Few predictions:

Thea as Speedy is going to happen. Roy is either going to be killed or go straight into Arsenal.

Sara is going to die. Laurel is going to be Black Canary but maybe not this season.

Malcom Merlyn is going to fight Deathstroke. He's going to come back to town because of Moira's death. He's going to fight Deathstroke because Deathstroke is going to go after Thea. This might mean she gets her initial training from Malcom for Speedy.

Arrow is going to be injected with the mirakuru to fix his knee and fight Deathstroke.

The cure for the mirakuru will be introduced and everyone will get cured.

Mirakuru is the substance of the Lazarus Pitt and the League of Shadows uses it.

For the title being "Birds of Prey" it really is just misdirection, especially after an episode called "Suicide Squad" where we got the real thing. Was really hoping for a Canary/Huntress team up by the end.

Also does anyone else think they're going to kill off Sarah so Laurel can inherit Black Canary? Laurel and Helena seemed more likely to turn ally than Sarah and Helena.

Nice! My 3 favorite X-Men are Cyclops, Kitty Pryde, and Illyana. Following them probably Rogue and Colossus (80's Colossus at least).

I always want to like Nightcrawler but no Nightcrawler story has really grabbed me so far. Well, unless you count X-Men Evolution. Man I loved that cartoon! Of course I write that, he was pretty great in Excalibur.

Wolverine was a great character in the 80's and early 90's. Was also entertaining in Whedon's run on Astonishing X-Men. They just kind of made him into god though. He can't die and he's the best in every single profession ever because he's immortal. Also he's in love with every chick he slept with but for some reason the fans always seem to clamor for Jean. What about Tyger Tiger or Mariko?

I support this motion.

I would read pre-Annihilation Nova and if you like Nova in Annihilation and want to know more. The old stuff is mostly Rich constantly losing and regaining his powers but has some good stories in it. But there is a lot of throw backs to the old Nova and New Warriors series in Nova volume 4's later issues with the Sphinx and Namorita.

The original 25 issue run is hard to make it through but the last few issues go into a big crossover with Rom the Space Knight and the Fantastic Four, climaxing in a show down between Sphinx and Galactus. And I say the last few issues, what happens is the story starts in the last few issues and then goes over to Rom and the FF. If you want to cherry pick, read the origin, any stories with the Sphinx, and then the last story arc

The New Warriors is mostly skippable. I refer to this period of Rich's career as his jock years. The first 25 issues or so are still mostly entertaining but the later half of the series is pretty weak. The subsequent New Warriors volumes aren't very good either. Although truth be told I didn't read the last one because it had nothing to do with the original team. I hear it might have been good but the Fox 90's X-Men cartoon made me hate Jubilee so I will never know.
