So far I've been loving the new Ultimate Spider-man and I hope my enjoyment of it continues. Never particularly cared for Ultimates or X-men.

I never knew much about Ben Reilly other than he existed and he was called the Scarlet Spider. So this will be a totally new experience for me and hopefully an enjoyable one.

Grant Morrison is one of those writers whose works you usually have to read more than once to understand what he is doing. For me this was the case with All*Star Superman. The first time I read it, the story didn't really make sense and it seemed to be lacking, and upon my second reading when I saw that it was about seeing the world as Superman sees it then I was like "Oh now I get it."

I think the same will apply with Wonder Woman. Now I'm not expecting All*Star Superman Wonder Woman, but I do expect Grant to take the character in a direction where she's never been taken before and that's what interests me the most.

Micheal Keaton was the best Bruce Wayne and Batman for me. I liked him best though in Batman Returns.

Predictable. After reading they were giving her a father, this was my first guess.

Same here. Not a very big spoiler. :S

@Hawkeye446: I agree that young children shouldn't be reading Catwoman (I'm not saying they should be restricted to Tiny Titans either). The content that was in Catwoman is the kind of stuff that gets stores, like the one I used to work at, hit with a hefty fine. Comics like that normally get put on the top shelf, but what DC is doing is flirting with the lines that determines a comics content rating. Like I said earlier, Catwoman was one pen stroke away from being a Mature Audiences only book. I'm not exactly sure why DC comics is doing this, maybe it is a marketing ploy used to boost sales. I don't know.

I would say it is. With Catwoman, I really don't mind. She has always been a sex-orientated character. With the tight-fitting leather suits, it doesn't leave much to the imagination. Also, I don't really think that a comic should be judged because if a child get's there hand on it, the store could get a fine. A Comic Book shop should be aware of where their more mature content is, and make sure themselves that it stays away from younger people.

True, the employees should make the extra effort to ensure that a younger child does not get a hold of a more mature based comic. It's just that this is not always the case in terms of reality. There are two stores which I frequent. One actually puts forth that extra effort by keeping a close eye on things and more mature based stuff is placed higher up on the shelf. If one slips by it is usually because a customer got lazy and decided not to put the book back where he/she got it. The other store not so much. What it says on the cover is what it is. So a Teen rated comic could have more bare breasts than a Penthouse magazine and they wouldn't notice until one of them actually read the comic, and they still would do nothing about it. There it is more of a keep your mouth shut and play dumb work ethic. So in reality it all depends on the type of work ethic that goes on at the store that determines the placing of rated comics.

Knowing how Marvel is about bringing dead characters back to life I would say that it more than likely will be Bucky. Fear Itself was a travesty anyway in my opinion and the death of Bucky was only used for shock value.
