I hope this is as great as the series this replaced. His run was a little choppy story arc to story arc but the overall story was great.

This looks promising

PLEASE PLEASE put Starkiller in here! Since Force Unleashed 3 has gone the way of all Star Wars games number 3's please make one story arc about him. At the very least mention him.

Totally agree with everything you said, and I would add despite the guy they have (potentially) playing him being a great actor, he's just a little too thin to be Luke Cage in my opinion.

He is a little small but I bet he could bulk up if he was in a movie instead of the trailer he made, Chis Evans has looked pretty skinny in some movies despite being pretty big as Cap. Same with Hemsworth, but he is always huge

I wouldn't put it past Marvel to use the show as a testing ground for lesser known heroes that they want into introduce into the MCU as a whole and use later down the road.

That would be a cool idea but as long as they don't tie down the characters to the series it could work. The only problem I see is that it could get expensive, especially if they try to integrate it with the movie characters and Disney can be some stingy people when it comes to budgeting.

i want a heros for hire movie so effin bad

If only man, if only. That would be so much better that Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man but it isn't "epic enough." Plus who would they fight? Kingpin might be an option now but there isn't that many iconic street level villains that they could fight that don't belong to Spider-man

I love seeing Daken back, unfortunately he will probably die right after this.

I am very surprised that they picked Sentry and Banshee over Nightcrawler. Kurt's death has lasted a while and it is good, especially how his death is a driving factor for several characters.

For a second I thought that DC would cancel books after only 3 issues.

Oh wait they already did.

I was using my iPad to listen to the podcasts using iOS 6.0 and the built in Safari app and normally it is fine but when I try to click on both of the podcast links from the drop down menu on the site banner, it goes to a www.gamespot.com page instead. I am not sure what is going on but I don't think it is an issue on my end because when I click on the link on the main page that goes directly to a specific podcast, it works normally.

I thought Suicide Squad 20 was a great cover this week.

@alforeigner: That was a great one.

Why is this in bold? The button is off...

I wonder if Sanctuary will tell them about some possibly real cake next?

Am I the only person who liked Power Girl's new costume, I mean I like the old one is great and everything but the new one wasn't bad just a different. It is not like she wore it much anyway...

Has this book always been this fun?? 'Cause I might've been missing out.

No It has been a bit more serious. This is the first issue with Micheal Alan Nelson as the writer instead of Mike Johnson and it definitely has a much lighter tone. That being said, the first 20 issues are really good but mostly lack the humor here and are more angst-filled by focusing on the fact that she is a teenager from another planet. It is probably my favorite series in the entire New 52

The series needs a consistent creative team. Levitz is alright, if not slowly paced and Kevin Maguire has some really excellent art work but having the three artist rotation with different artists every other month is really frustrating to see because until recently, all of the art was very different.

One thing that is really dragging the book down is the whole meta-story arc of the pair trying to fight Darkseid. It doesn't work because a) they are in a different universe; and b) they literally cannot do it. Worlds' Finest is far to unpopular to have Darksied, someone who thrashed the Justice League, show up. That means that no matter what the story does, it will ultimately go nowhere. That being said an easy way to have the series improve would be for Levitz to simply end the meta-arc, it hasn't gone anywhere is 12 issues and has not been well received either, just bite the bullet, end it, and move on to something better.
