This trailer looks better than the previous one but I'm still quite sure the movie is going to suck. I'll still see it though. Partly because I am a sucker for the Turtles and partly out of morbid curiosity. All I am really hoping to get out of it is some entertaining action sequences. The dialogue/acting will likely be pretty bad but as long as I get some level of entertainment out of it then I'll walk away from the theater without regrets.

Both of these are fantastic but it has to be Mask of the Phantasm for me. It is so great and captures such a big part of my childhood.

@jonny_anonymous: I constantly ask myself the same question about Romita Jr. Man Without Fear was great. At least this looks better than some of his work on Avengers with Bendis.

DOFP for sure. Love both movies though.

Wow. Knowing how big an Ultimate Universe fan you are Mat, this must really sting. I have been slowly working my way through Ultimate Spider-Man from the beginning but I thought about jumping onto these new books. I doubt I will now. I haven't been seeing good things about any of them except Spider-Man.

I have very little experience with the character. The trades from the Huston/Finch run are in the mail. I'm really looking forward to reading them but I doubt I will have the time to read enough to make a well informed pick on this poll before it closes. From what I know of MK, he seems like my kind of character.

@i_dont_like_comics: Well, I definitely don't see it as a "rip-off." Especially since we have only seen a couple trailers. Have you read Hellblazer? I'm a fan of Supernatural and I've seen most of it. I don't have sources but I don't think think it's a stretch to say that Supernatural seems to have at least been somewhat influenced by the comics. I could be way wrong too but I still think it is a little hasty to say that Constantine is a rip-off of anything when it's source material is a comic book that started in 1988.

@i_dont_like_comics: "Supernatural" was based on Hellblazer if I am not mistaken, so of course they seem somewhat similar.

I am so excited for this series! Hellblazer might be my favorite comic book series of all time and everything I have seen of this show has me so pumped for the possibilities.

I almost voted "I love both of them" because that is definitely true but I do enjoy JLU a bit more than Batman Beyond. The Justice League is such an iconic group and I think it says a lot about the quality of JLU that many people still consider that the definitive interpretation of said iconic team. It did a wonderful job of showcasing lesser known DCU characters while giving enough time to the big names we all love. I just recently re-watched both of these series and they hold up extremely well. The Timm-verse was something to behold and both of these shows played a huge part in bringing me to the world of comics.
