And by the end he'll hook up with Lucien Gates and the new Phantom Lady. I'm interested to see what the end game is on these mini series, one would think Freedom Fighters ongoing, but these minis haven't exactly been setting sales charts on fire.

I liked both PL & TR minies, but they are taking too long too build up to Freedom Fighters, maybe they could have started the ongoing already & show some flashbacks or do a #0 similar to the one done for DCU Presents

It's nice how Jerry Ordway's art is still consistently good, no matter how long he's been in the business. As opposed to certain artists whose work has gone down considerably. *COUGH* romita jr.*COUGH*

PLEASE NO!!!

I was interested until I saw Ordway...I could never get into his art.

DC barely gives it readers a chance to get to know the second Human Bomb, and now we're getting a third? I wish Ordway wasn't drawing this, so I wouldn't have to bother with it, but I suppose I'll pick it up for the art.

It looks like they're re-creating the 90's version, but the Human Bomb has been around since 1941.

What is the "90's version" of Human Bomb? There was only 1 version until 2006 with Infinite Crisis Aftermath: Battle for Bludhaven. When you wanna call something 90's, it should actually have a reference to that decade. Ordway's art isn't even 90's since he's been drawing like that since before that decade.

As for a Cyborg series, maybe you should argue about that on a thread about an ongoing, not a mini. Unless all you want is a Cyborg miniseries.

Im waiting for the freedom fighters, starman, doompatrol, mister terrific, JSA, JLA, because im old school. I will probably start picking up worlds finest. Huntress and powergirl sound like a good team to me.

@andrewbullheaded:

@theTimeStreamer:

If you dont like it, then go read something else. hell, DC has over 52 titles. what this is about is giving something different. to add even more variety. for example, who would believe that a western comic would be in print right now? Its likely DC knows this comic wont sell well, but they still put it out to give you even more variety. dare i say, they even try to experiment with left field ideas. As for me, I like classic characters.

@lifeboy: Bro, Imma give u a heads up, world's finest is a good concept but horrible execution thus far. The only redeeming issue so far is the zero issue. So pick that up if ur interested, otherwise the other issues ain't worth ur time. If u like JSA, pick up earth 2 by robinson, that series is amazing right now. Plus they just finished an arc, so you can pick up next month's issue with no issues about being in midstory.

@mosnterduc1000: Why don't u want cyborg to have his own series? I could easily see a good story line there, a difficult father son relationship, a possible love interest in the aide (I forgot her name), and possible villains in profssor ivo. They could also introduce the new 52 metal men, plus i think its just a cool concept in general, a made man who now has to adjust to his new life.

  This is a public forum.  If someone doesn't like something, they're allowed to say it. If someone doesn't agree with said opinion, they're allowed to do so. The critical thing is doing this in a remotely civilized fashion and elaborating to get your point across clearly.  Telling people to "shut up" and place comics where the sun doesn't shine isn't an example of doing such a thing.  Keep it friendly, okay?

Thanks for the correction k4tzm4n. I didnt mean to be polluting the comicvine forum.

Sorry i snapped windstreamer. I get upset when i hear something negative about what I consider the best company ever :)

I have heard its bad whitelantern but i get the feeling I will enjoy reading it because i think those girlos have interesting things to say.

All 3 of you look at my picks for worlds finest powergirl and huntress movie actors. martha macullum and kimberly guilfoyle. both are from Fox News!

I think the HB has a lot of potential, but honestly with the New52 they should've just reimagined Damage/Grant Emerson and made him the Human Bomb and used a variation of his first suit with the radioactive shirt. I'll give this a look. While I was a huge fan of the 90's the Ray series and character, I was a little disappointed with the new take [mainly because it wasn't Ray Terrill with a helmet] however I did dig the new look....

@mosnterduc1000: I want both a cyborg and Shazam series. I will gladly give DC more of my money each month if they add two of those solo series. What they could do is make a separate Shazam series and add a mini cyborg series at the end of each JL so that they can see that a cyborg series would sell.
