I'm sorry, is that a broken glass pie?

Maybe it's because I've been watching the first season of Homeland, but I like Claire Danes for Kate. I think she could pull off the right mix of outer strength/inner vulnerability.

10 to 1 they pull a clone saga and sub in Kaine as the new Spider-Man.

I Love that Clark and Lois got married in Pre-New 52. But this is a new world, Lois and Clark had their time. I don't mind seeing Superman with Wonder Woman, I wouldn't even mind seeing him with Lana Lang, I wouldn't mind seeing him with anybody. I just don't want the new DCnU to feel predictable. I want to guess what will happen, I don't want to know that Superman and Lois Lane will be back together. Even if they do, I want it to feel natural, not just because the fans want it, thats how the best comics work.

Agree, agree, agree. I don't want to see Lois and Clark together any time soon, because I know exactly what that will look like. Not interested. Show me something fresh; something crazy. Otherwise, why bother rebooting the whole damn universe?

I seem to recall not so long ago that Miller was thinking about writing origin stories for Hartigan and Iron Jack.

Since A Dame to Kill For is already a prequel story, slotting those two in would seem to make sense, no?

I was positive Marvel stated that the Ultimate and 616 universes would NEVER meet.

Yeah, I remember reading that too. Then again, I suppose it was inevitable.

Well I suppose that answers that then.

I'm sorry, but has it been confirmed that that's Donna and Conner on the cover of Earth-2?

Two things.

First, I'm not sure that I really want to delve into the backstory of the Lobster. Part of what makes him an interesting character, to me at least, is the mystique that surrounds him. He's generally written as a laconic, enigmatic, intense sort of guy, and knowing where he came from (or knowing that he used to be a regular dude) kind of breaks it for me.

Second, not even Hellboy has his own ongoing. Just not the way Mignola does business.

I get that One More Day was a sloppy way to reset the Spider-Man universe, but at the very least it erased Sins Past and the whole Norman Osborn seducing Gwen Stacy business.
