@reverendhunt: Yeah, the Sinestro issue didn't really explain it. I think John only used the Sapphire power to teleport; he may still have have the ring, but he doesn't want to be a part of that Corps. He may not have any Sapphire energy left after the teleport either... *Shrug*
They should've segued somehow out of that. It's one of those things that seems like they literally just forgot it happened.
So I'm confused... when did John go back to just plain Green after he was made a Star Sapphire? I'm looking through all of my books in this arc, and he's Sapphire at the end of the book... and then just Green in every book after.
I'm glad this damn thing finally came out. I pick it up for me mum (although I readily admit I read it after her) and she'd been questioning me when 7'd be out ever since she read 6, lol. Archie never responds to my emails even about the subscription she had for a different book so I had nothing to tell her for the longest time.
@danhimself: There's a rumor that Alopex was created because, for legal reasons, IDW couldn't use Ninjara (note that this is completely unconfirmed, and I've also heard that IDW does own the rights to Ninjara).
Well, considering that she showed up in the 30th anniversary comic, I'm pretty sure she's not exempt from IDW's usage. Sure, it was a story from Murph and Allan themselves, but if there were rights issues you'd think they'd exempt her from usage altogether.
Did anyone catch all the Easter egg names Wells was dropping at the end? I got Ralph Dibny/Elongated Man, Al Rothstein/Atom Smasher, Grant Emerson/Damage, Bea da Costa/Fire, Will Everett/Amazing Man, and of course Ronnie Raymond/Firestorm. But who were the others?
Jake Davenport = ???
Daria Kim? = ???
Yep, I'm sitting here at awe at all of the names he dropped and everyone only seemed to remember Ralph in the comments here. Glad I'm not the only one.
(Jake and Daria were Farooq's friends that died when they tried resuscitating him)
I'm sorry but not only does this episode deserve 5 stars, but what is up with this review? Is this how it always is?
It was basically a recap. Then your thoughts section was merely an indepth recap. You didn't tell us what the show did well or bad. You didn't talk about any character developement or plot pacing. You gave it fours stars(even though it deserves 5) yet didn't give us a single reason why. Maybe I'm just new to this but I was kinda hoping for some in-depth discussion, and thoughtful analysis.
Not only that but it doesn't seem to be spell-checked at all. It doesn't kill the 'review', but it is glaring, and coupled with the tone it's more than a bit distracting.
