If this is an action figure I am so getting this.

It only has 10 pages right? That's how it works for DC's other $0.99 books. I noticed you didn't mention that in your Arkham City: End Game review either. Saying it's $0.99 only matters if it breaks the 10 page/$1 ratio of digital, in my opinion. Also aren't they called chapters when it's an issue split into multiple parts, that's what Beechen calls the $0.99 releases of Batman Beyond. I guess my main point is if the combined cost of the chapters is the same as an issue, the pricing doesn't matter.

But whatever, you're only reviewing this chapter which is priced at $0.99 so technically you are correct. Five stars...I might have to check this out.

I was so happy to read this issue and realize that it was Bulletproof in the costume. The solicits had made it sound as if a random dude was in Mark's costume, something like "what does Mark think of his replacement?" Also, it will be great to see how this will develop Bulletproof's character from the more-playboy-ish persona to someone that is more mature, because he'll have to get serious if he wants a piece of Mark's rogues gallery.

Lately I've been hearing people say the "Big Four" because Green Lantern's become such a prominent character of late with John's run, over-arching events, movie, and now tv-show. So personally I think they should be pushing that instead of the Trinity.

As I understand it, it takes place in Earth-12, not the main earth. Also, the story arc that the new Batman Beyond series will start with was supposed to be part of the old one. In that way it's kind of like Batwoman, but unlike Batwoman I think they'll leave it alone and not edit it like crazy. Now I have my fingers crossed for 65-year-old Static on the JLB, because I'm not digging his solo book.

Aquaman rocks, totally loving this series but where is Aqua Lad?????

Retconned out!

What? he literally just deputed?

Scott Lobdell was asked if he would appear in Teen Titans and said:

Eventually, I am certain. In fact, SCOOP HERE: I was originally asked to include him in the first issue -- one of our earliest conversations between me and the editors. He was going to be part of the Core Five! But then it was decided, if I recall, that he was going to be such an important player in another book, that it should be left up to that book's writer to define exactly who Aqualad is and how he fits into the world. If I were writing him over in TEEN TITANS, his adventures in the other book would conflict with the team book. So, for the sake of Kaldur's continuity and growth he will not be appearing in the book just yet. (That said, I can't wait for the day he's a Teen Titan! Is he an awesome character, or what?!)
And your welcome! LOL!

Sounds to me like he might show up in an arc of this book, or maybe something else.

I wanted the guardians to die (or subsequent random dimension banishment) so that the NEW GUARDIANS would actually be the new guardians. Then the corps's would have to interact somehow.

I don't think it does say it is completely not the future of the Animated Series. If you mean that if anything from the comics gets added to it and that makes it not canon, I don't know how much I can argue with that. However, this takes place on Earth 12 which is part of the mainstream comics. So it makes sense to add stuff from the the current DC Universe, because it is an alternate version of it, so it should show up in some form. Still, it is on Earth 12 not the...(main?) Earth. (Haven't read 52, don't know if it's Prime, 1, Main, One...) From what Morrison's done, it looks like Damian will be taking Bruce's place as Terry's mentor in the mainstream comics, which for that universe makes more sense. I made a blog trying to figure it out, until the Letter Column in Issue #3 confirmed it's on Earth 12. So...yeah. Not the future of current DCU, just Earth 12, which becomes present with Bruce in the chair.


P.S. Think of a Terry raised by Damian; would he kill?

Much better than the first trailer. I'm liking this.
