@inferiorego:

I like the look he's sporting in these images over his giant fur coat/bulletproof vest w/a baggy shirt look that he's had in most of the media leading up to this point. I mean, I think that Tom Hardy's gonna do a fantastic job regardless, but I've always thought Bane looked a bit goofy.

It's got nothing to do with the mask, it's just I feel like Bane in Nolan's universe would have to look a bit more authoritative to command the type power he does.

So wait, did Brock just kill Hybrid?

I really kinda hated that they got rid of Anti-Venom. I know that there were some people who really didn't like the character or the direction they took him in, but I liked the change and it was good to see Eddie be something closer to a straight hero than (no pun intended) an anti-hero or villain.

Haven't been following Miles Morales in Ultimate Spider-Man in the least, but this looks super interesting. Love the first teaser image.

Poor Jon. If you think about it, he's a miserable dude without Garfield... it makes him seem even more crazy/depressed/miserable if you think like Garfield were just a figment of his imagination.

I'm definitely one of the people who was very upset to hear that it was cancelled. I thought it was a great book that built X-23 up as a legitimate character and started pushing her in some interesting ways. It also was a great outlet for Gambit to have a resurgence in comics, and even Jubilee started finding an actual role through Liu's writing. I highly disagree that the writing was 'obnoxious' and I never thought any of the guest character's were portrayed inaccurately.

It was cancelled simply because it began to sell 'poorly' from a business standpoint. Although it was a fairly high selling book for being A.) about a relatively minor character and B.) having a female protagonist, I believe (if I remember correctly) that it had the biggest drop-off in sales of any Marvel title following the first few issues.

It was still selling better than several titles, but I guess Marvel took that as a sign to scrap the series. A shame.

That is a ton of solicitations! Lots of cool stuff, though definitely skewing towards, what at least appears to be, cheesecake. Still, Bionic Man written by Phil Hester, Lone Ranger and Green Hornet by Ande Parks, and the Game of Thrones books all look really neat.

I really really kinda hate Power Girl's new costume.

And no, it really isn't about the boobs. It's just a really gaudy, poorly designed, and awkward-looking costume that she's sporting now. I don't mind change, but make the change something that looks good. Look at Huntress, she ditched the stomach window while keeping the same basic look to her costume and it works.

Also, I'd just like to say whilst I will likely give this series a shot, I'm really baffled at the idea of them introducing an Earth-2 right after they re-launched their entire brand.

I really hope they release all these DC Nation shorts in a big DVD compilation. I'd buy that in a second.

@Vezok123:

Doppelganger was a six-armed clone of Spider-Man created by Adam Magus during Infinity War. He's reappeared in Maximum Carnage and in the recent Carnage mini-series. He's essentially just a mindless, feral version of Spider-Man that is driven by very basic survival instincts.

My team would be;

Green Goblin/Norman Osborn; Leader, tactical and strategic center, high-tech airborne harasser

Hobgoblin/Phil Urich; high-tech, air-borne, unpredictable

Rhino; Muscle

Kraven; Hunter, marksman, and expert trapper

Scorpion/Mac Gargan; Muscle, versatile weapon outfitting

Doppelganger; Unpredictable, direct match-up for Spider-Man
