Will Swords be in trade anytime soon? I just started hearing buzz about it, so I'm bummed it's cancelled, but would like to pick up the trade, especially for the future. Sounds like the perfect way to introduce comics to a daughter/niece.

@FoxxFireArt: False, Damian was raised by Talia Al Ghul and the League of Assassins, he should be more than capable of kicking Huntress's butt, even if she was raised by Batman and Catwoman.

Looks like a Justice League sponsored by the government. This roster is really interesting.....except for Catwoman. Sorry to reiterate what others have said, but yeah, that choice is weird. I have a feeling she won't be on it for long though. Still, the rest of the cast is really cool. Definitely going to check this out.

I liked what one commentator said about this. He said that this made Superman seem even less human. One of Superman's biggest problems is that a lot of people can't relate to him, and giving him an Amazon, warrior princess, demigod girlfriend is just going to make him even more unrelatable. A big part of Superman's story, or at least it should be in my opinion, is Clark trying to figure out how to be human. He's basically a god among mortals, so he continually is struggling to find his place on Earth. Writers need to focus more on that. I think they'll be a couple for a time, but in the end Lois is just a better fit for Superman.

And to be honest, I'm more concerned with how Superman is going to fit in the Wonder Woman comic. It's been one of my favorite reads every month since the relaunch, and I think inserting a boyfriend would mess with the story. She is definitely the more interesting character of the two after the New 52 reboot.

    It's not a terrible film. It has it's moments, but they really ruined his origin. They didn't get the "with great power comes great responsibility" (which is not even said) right at all. It was more about revenge than guilt, and Peter was already kind of a hero before the bite. It's all wrong. Also he acts like a jerk a lot in the film. It really left a bad taste for me.

    This. They tried to tell two stories: Spider-man's origin and the mystery of Peter's parents. Unfortunately the two do not mix, at all. And I hate, hated, how the police were hunting Spider-man down Gotham style.

    Excited that both Artemis isn't dead and Aqualad isn't ruined as a character. So good, great way to end before a hiatus.

    This might be wrong, but I thought only psychics could contain the Phoenix Force? Either way, this is kind of dumb and makes the X-men look like the bad guys....
