@Loki9876: I totally agree, not sure who wanted him to slim down? I think that he'll do an excellent job.

I love the Red Hulk and Black Widow cover. Not sure if I will pick this up, I might just wait for the graphic novel.
I hear you. From what I've seen on comic websites and boards, most people are turned off by the creative team. I actually liked it and Steve Dillon's art was decent for the most part. They have a new artist Phil Noto in issue seven, his art looks great. I have no choice since it's the only book with Rulk in it.
I love the idea of the show, and glad to see a comic book character on TV. There is so much potential with this show, it could be the next Smallville and have a ten year run, but they are ruining it. :(
I need MORE comic book and LESS soap opera. They introduce characters and then they just sit there! The supporting characters are supposed to grow/change/evolve; the plot isn't moving forward.
Tommy Merlyn is cut off from his trust fund, OK that's a start. They need to show him suffering and how he becomes Merlyn which I think is Green Arrow's biggest foe in the comics? They need to show us that!
Laurel/Dina, Thea/Speedy, John Diggle, the Mom, ALL of those characters just sit there and "bitch" about what Oliver is NOT doing. . . who cares? Show Laurel/Dina becoming the Black Canary (which I look forward to), show Thea Queen becoming Speedy (I also look forward to), show John Diggle become Bronze Tiger (I'm guessing or some bad ass guy that Green Arrow can rely on). Otherwise, those characters are
The mom and the step-dad have somewhat of a plot, but those are minor characters and they don't seem to interact with Oliver/Green Arrow, the step-dad doesn't or at least not yet. The mom has a shady past but we the audience after seven episodes still doesn't know what exactly.
I love DeadShot, Slade Wilson/Terminator (I really loved that), China White, Royal Flush Gang, and the Huntress, but they all seem like the guest star/villain-of-the-week with hardly any development and then poof they are gone forever? We'll at least the Huntress got two episodes but her character on the show was NOT the incredible girl-power Huntress that we know in the comics.
This show needs to consult with Bruce Timm ASAP! I'm still watching the show and have hope.
I picked up Thunderbolts from Marvel Now, it was decent but left a lot of questions about the motivation. What surprised me was that the original Thunderbolts had debuted in Hulk's book and many thought that Thunderbolts had something to do with Gen Ross. Now it actually does!
You make a really good point. I hadn't heard/read Hellblazer so I knew nothing of the character. I actually enjoyed the movie, but if I was a fan of the comic, I would have been pissed off that a non-British actor was portraying him. Looking up, the inspiration was the singer Sting from the Police. I think Daniel Craig would have been perfect. My only gripe is that cigarette smoking is so last century.
I thought Elektra was OK. Jennifer Garner can act and kick butt. I didn't like the costume (she never wore pants in the comic). You're right, there were too many characters, the antagonist should have been the Hand and that's it. Make it more of a martial arts movie with a modern twist and it would have rocked.
