I voted Black Panther but I would have liked for Spawn to have been an option. Probably in place of Blade considering we have 5 Marvel choices and only 2 DC. Come to think of it, I would have really liked seeing Shadowman on here as well. Mr. Boniface would have gotten my vote.

This was a big improvement over last week. I hated last week's episode but all the stuff with Gordon in this episode was really engaging. I still have problems with pretty much all of the side plots. It's also annoying that two recent major plot points have little lasting impact. Gordon was only in Arkham for one episode and Fish was in captivity for less than half an episode. It still changed the status quo for her character but I would have liked more from that sub-plot. Especially since that was such a focus of the first half of the season. Oh well, this show remains decent most of the time (with a couple major duds sprinkled in) and this was one of the better episodes. 4 out of 5.
@illmatic4177: I still think that everything I have heard Bendis say, it sounds like a reboot. As I said, not to the level of the New 52, but a reboot nonetheless. In an attempt to be new reader friendly I kind of expect that even though things from the past may not change, they won't be referencing them at all. It'll be very interesting to see what happens though. It'll be a very crazy time for the big two with Convergence and Secret Wars. DiDio said that they are "leaving all doors open" and they want to "bridge the gap between different generations of fans" so both companies have a somewhat nebulous sounding event coming that may or may not act as a soft reboot.
Listening to what Bendis had to say about Secret Wars and "All New Marvel" on Seth Meyers is the biggest reason I am convinced that this is a reboot. Have they legitimately said "This isn't a reboot" because I haven't seen anything where they did? I just think they are trying to avoid that specific word because fans have such a massively negative reaction to it. I am a bigger fan of DC and I always have been so the prospect of a Marvel reboot doesn't really bother me. Certain characters REALLY need a fresh start. Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, for instance, have such a convoluted history that it's hard for even hardcore X-Men fans to really explain it. Wolverine's history is pretty muddled and nonsensical ever since they started telling stories about every little thing in his past. I think this "totally not a reboot" will end up being less extreme than the New 52 reboot but it is still, at it's heart, a reboot.
4 out of 5 from me. I really enjoyed this. It wasn't the best episode of the season but I liked seeing more from Chas and Felix Faust was really cool. I'm fairly confident that he'll be back if this show gets renewed.
Oh and I TOTALLY FORGOT A MAJOR ONE! The Dark Knight Returns part 4 deserves to be part of my four as TDKR was the first comic I bought once I decided to get into comics. I feel like a fool for forgetting it.
Batman 406, Green Lantern Rebirth, Daredevil by Bendis and Maleev, and Hellboy Seed of Destruction. I couldn't pick specific issues for GL, Daredevil, or Hellboy but these four series are the reason I am the fan I am today. Comics have given me an escape in hard times and added much joy in good times. Without them I have no idea what kind of person I would be today.
I'd also like to mention that it was ridiculously hard to narrow this down to four. I wanted to include Hellblazer, Teen Titans, and X-Men but I couldn't leave off any of the four I chose.
@d9000: Unfortunately, I found very little of the episode enjoyable. Even the scene with Falcone choking Liza to death was ruined with poor acting from Liza. Plus, I never bought that Falcone would give up his empire for this one chick that he barely actually knew and demonstrated very little affection to on screen until this episode. I'm glad others were able to enjoy the episode more than me because I REALLY want to like this show. Batman is my favorite character and I love his supporting cast as well. I'm not giving up yet but this episode left a really bad taste in my mouth.
