Superman should win this every time. Even if Batman is preppared. The kryptonite rign (or that Kryptonite gas Batman made on TDKR) can give Bruce some advantage but Superman would find a way to fight back. I mean, if Kryptonite is the only thing that determines whether Superman wins or loses, Metallo should have killed him long ago.

And in the end Batman is just a human. If Superman wants to end this really fast he can just take him, fly him to the sky and leave him there without air until Bruce fells unconscious. And Batman would not be able to avoid that since he's not strong enough to free himself from Superman grabbing him or fast enough to avoid being grabbed. The only way Batman could win would be if Superman was being controlled or was overconfident.

I've been thinking about this book ever since it came out. The thing is... ok, while I think that the "making heroes their opposites" is kind of clever ant it was pulled of really well with people like Captain Falcon, Iron Man and Hulk, I found that on others it was dull and cheap. It seems like the X-men are just one hive mind that went from fighting for the exact opposite thing, but we didn't see any change of attitude in any of them.

And the same goes for Kluh. While I kind of get it (Hulk now's the opposite of himself so he turns from Hulk to another Hulk pulled by sadness and not rage) it's just too ridiculous. Ç

So I'm not sure if I'm enjoying this event. I was until issue 4 but now everything just seems rush.

Can someone tell me about how Peter came back from the dead please? I don't follow this book, I'm just interested.

it hasn't been entirely revealed yet. So far Osborn's claiming he's immortal so Peter (who has the same OZ formula through his veins) should be immortal too.

But then that opens up the question of what the hell happened to Harry since Osborn keeps saying he's dead but if I remember correctly he injected himself OZ as well... I don't know, this is just confusing.

As far as we all know this could not be Peter, although at this point I doubt he isn't the real deal (it'll be too cruel if Bendis re-introduce Peter to his family just to kill him again)

That's what I'm worried about. I really dig Miles, but if Bendis just brings back Peter just to be another clone or something, that would be kind of jerkish of him to do.

Seconded.

At least Bendis has shown that Peter has no real intention of keep being Spider-Man. So even if he's definetly back Miles can still be Spider-Man (and I'm ok with it, as long as this is not just a way of have a plan B if the sales go down).

I have a theory that will probably be wrong but when has that stopped anyone before. The way peter is framed in the "who is pulling our strings" bit makes me think that peter is a clone that has peters memories but knows he's a clone and is working for someone to gain the trust of peter's family and friends for some reason. Also I think the person behind is going to be kate's dad or family member that's why she gets all upset when she found out miles was spiderman.

Haven't thought about that but who knows, maybe you're right. What buggers me is that Peter woke up in some sort of lab/factory place. Not at the morgue, not in his grave, but in a lab far away from home. Maybe he's a clone and he doesn't know he's a clone yet.

I don't know, as long as Bendis keeps Miles being Spider-Man I'm ok with it, and I'm pretty excited to see how this ends.

I don't get how Apocolypse is here now? I think i've missed something.

He's an apocalypse clone Fantomex made during Uncanny X-Force. The thing is, during their first mission, they found this Apocalypse kid who Fantomex killed. After that he cloned him and grew him in a laboratory in "The World". During his time in Fantomex's lab, Evan (which is the name of the clone) was connected to a virtual reality program where he experimented a normal childhood at a farm.

Fantomex was (I guess) trying to prove that someone like Apocalypse wasn't born a monster or something like that... I don't know.

The thing is, during Dark Angel saga he was forced to release Evan and after that he started studying at Jean Grey's School using the codename "Genesis". Why he stopped looking like his teenage self and started looking like Apocalypse last issue is something I can't explain though.

This was the worst so far. I don't know, it's just too damn confusing. I mean, the heroes realize they're not acting normal but apparently don't care about it. Then you have Carnage acting all heroic and not caring about it as well (he's a psychopath, if I enjoyed murdering people I will be confused if all of a sudden I started helping them out). I guess the point is that Red Onslaught (or Scarlett Witch's spell or whatever it was) has changed them to the core so they don't even care about having changed but... it's just weird.

Like the X-Men working with Apocalypse. First of all, why did Evan grew up? Why couldn't they have a teenager Apocalypse? you know, Evan with the same ambitions everyone's so scared he'll end up having but with his looks. Then there's the fact that no one in the school seem to care (or at least Remender fails at making it look that way) about what's going on. I get the mutants that were fighting the Red Onslaught are changed, but dude, there's a whole school full of mutants who weren't there, and no one cares?

And let's not talk about Kluh... that's just ridiculous.

I love Remender's work and so far I was enjoying this event a lot but this is just too strange and fast for me.

I guess the reason 616-Peter is the most important Spider of them all is because he's the only one who has faced Morlun and beaten him. But then that brings the question, what's so menacing about Morlun and his family anyway? If I remember correctly, Peter beat him the first time because the radiation in his blood made him uneatable for the villain. I guess not every single Spider-Totem was bitten by a radioactive Spider but can't they just grab the few that actually were bitten by one and go kick the asses of Morlun's clan?

I did enjoy this episode a lot. Didn't saw Missy's identity coming (I guess I didn't thought about it, I just thought she was new) and really liked it. And about people not understanding why Cybermen are going for the dead now... well, it makes a lot of sense actually. They've failed time and time again at forcing people to become Cybermen, now they have step up their games, tricking people into thinking that they are giving them one last option. Also, dead people are easier to hide since no one's going to look for them.

Clara acting all psycho was great, although I do think it's pretty obvious by now that this is her last season as a companion. I mean, she has betrayed the Doctor, sure he still is his friend but how can she travel with her now? how can he trust her?

No, he doesn't win.

Sorry but he doesn't.

I hope not having Alex and Janet here doesn't mean that they die in AXIS or something like that.

Don't know who Brother Vodoo is. Is he cool?

And in my opinion this rooster has way too many Avengers in it.
