This seems absolutely unnecessary.

I completely agree. I would go as far as to say that, in my eyes, the 'New 52' as a whole has only worked out positively for a few characters.

I would also agree with people's sentiments that they should have released #0's BEFORE they started wheeling out their #1's if only to orient us to what had and what hadn't happened in this 'new' universe. Almost a year in and I'm still not sure what is canon, what isn't, who exists, who is dead, who isn't. It's maddening.

Oh well. I guess I'll just keep reading Animal Man and nothing else.

It's easily her mohawk/vest look. I wish she'd sport the mohawk again...

Now I want pizza....REALLY bad.

Same here. Love the art challenges, especially because it lets you see just how quick-thinking comic artists are and how skillful they are at their craft. Seriously, their ability to just SEE what they want something to look like and draw it outright is astounding.

Looks like something that Wonder Woman SHOULD be wearing, but I'm not sure I like the fickle nature that DC is taking with their characters' costumes. Think the armor could use a little polish (no pun intended) to make it look a little better, but it looks cool as is.

Oh man, I'm in love with those cover designs. Not sure I'll be reading the series, but Aja and Fraction seems like a solid creative team.

I'm pretty sure I reflect everyone else's sentiments in saying that I'm glad that Sabretooth will be making a comeback, but wish a different writer was behind it. It's not that I don't think he can write a good story anymore- I'm sure he still has some of that old spark in him- but it's just that I feel like he's been fairly removed from all the recent happenings with Wolverine.

Jason Aaron should be the one to bring Sabretooth back into the fold.

I just had an epiphany...

At first, I thought it was odd that we'd seen two separate looks for Catwoman; one in which she had high-tech goggles/glasses (seen in the pictures where she's riding the Batpod) and one in which she has the mask and ears combo.

HOWEVER, I just realized that the ears ARE the goggles. They must just flip down over the mask when she needs to use them. I'm not sure if everyone else noticed that and I'm just an idiot, but I like her costume WAY more knowing that that's what the 'ears' are for. Either way, as Kenstar would say...

Oh... my... GOD.

I just realized; whenever they would show pics of Catwoman in the DKR, they would show her with either high-tech goggles/glasses OR the ear mask combo. What I didn't realize until now is that the ears ARE the goggles. They just (cleverly) look like ears when viewed from a certain angle. Pfffffft, I must be an idiot.

I love Flash as Venom, but I'm not liking that I saw Hybrid and whatever her name is get killed by Eddie Brock. I'm more curious how Eddie got his guns, training and intel on the symbiote's. I kind of understand why he wants to destroy the symbiote's, but why the wearer's? I thought he "found God," I know he killed while being Anti-Venom but I just don't get it...

I agree completely. That's why I actually liked Anti-Venom; it fit with his new ideals of wanting to 'save' everyone, it allowed him to still be Venom-like (to please those that wanted to see him as Venom), and it allowed him to still be a little bit nuts.

Just making him the generic guy with guns seems like more of a cop-out than Anti-Venom ever was, and the fact that he's killing PEOPLE and claiming he doesn't know of a better way to remove the suits from the wearers... that is just ridiculous.

Maybe it'll be revealed that Eddie's become drastically colder and now has only one mission in life (or something similarly which explains his behavior), and this will lead his character down an even darker path than ever before. I just don't necessarily like seeing who I perceive as a genuinely 'good' character doing things that seem, well, so very out of character.
