When Batman bat-blasted Darkseid with his chest symbol, that should've made it on this list

@lurkero: this is really well put, I agree with you

Sara Pichelli is always putting out amazing work. And pretty much any of Ankas Spider-Woman designs would have been total winners. The dude has some serious talent! Can't wait to see where this hype will take him.

@ostyo: this in no way happens in the issue. It isn't even implied

Okay, I'm really conflicted with the direction this is taking. While I enjoy the Joker as a character, I can't help but feel like his entire history is cheapened with the idea/ realization that he's some "immortal evil". I know that there are issues to come so this might be resolved in a less drastic way, but here's my gripe: the Joker is supposed to be human. He's supposed to be the scariest, most evil, most sadistic human. Not a monster, not a demon. If this story concludes with him being some immortal representation of evil, it'll take away 95% of what makes him interesting.

And if he's not human, why in the world would he need to take oodles and oodles of chemicals to replace his face or alter his skin tone or whatever it is he did? What would be the point if he could just hellfire-and-brimstone a new face on?

Snyder said he's writing this as the last Joker story he'll write, and by the way it's going, it's gonna be the last Joker story for anyone to write. Making him anything other than human defeats his entire fear factor. Batmans arch enemy should be exactly as he is: a human. If his arch enemy turns into some supernatural character it'll change the entire scope of Batmans title. I hate to say this, Snyder, but I am not a fan (YET. It could change).

I really wish I could get into this show like I've gotten into Flash and Arrow but something about it just keeps me away and continues to do so. Also, can they pronounce Falcone correctly?? I haven't watched the show after the first couple of episodes, but Falcone is italian for falcon, which hunt bats. Symbolic, yes? Listen to the Italian pronunciation. They're leaving out the last E.

Maybe this has been explained and I missed it or it has been fixed.

Honestly I've always liked Jessicas costume. That said, this new redesign is enough in its same vein for it to not be a jarring change that I know 90% of us would, at first glance, be at odds with. I really like the secret agent emphasis. And it's designed by Anka?? Winner, winner, chicken dinner. The man has some serious talent.

I really enjoy that costumes are moving away from just being flashy suits and moving in the direction of being utility outfits for the characters respective abilities/ talents. That said, however, if they change Spider-Mans costume I'll lead the riot.

If their entire history of being Magentos children is retconned for the sake of the MCU, that's really cheap.
