When Darkseid defeats Kal-L and asks, "Where did you get such power?" Then sniffs and uses his omega beams to apparently destroy Kal-L's Fortress of Solitude, what is that chair-looking object inside? I assume it has to do with Ixaya/Highfather, so does that mean that highfather is responsible for the creation of Earth-2 or that he empowers Kal-L in some way?

@akbogert:

My views are definitely opposed to Gail Simone's, so I was having the same reservations you are. However, I was surprised at how well Gail presented the issues in the book. The book is told from the point of view of the members of the Movement, so all the cops are presented as being corrupt. But, as Gail cleverly intimates, this may not be the case with the police captain. Similarly, she hints that the Movement may be too quick in passing their judgment and too harsh with their punishments. And that is why I loved the first issue; it showed both sides and hinted that there is much more to come. Overall, a perfect first issue. It makes me think of the Movement as sort of a modern and more flawed X-Men - just a bunch of kids trying to "stick it to the man" with a lot to learn.

@madeinbangladesh: Absolutely. My recommendation, just skip issues 1-5 and start with issue 6. The first five were not that good and really have nothing to do with the new storyline. This new arc is basically a continuation of his Uncanny X-Force run.

I was really impressed with this title. I had originally planned on just buying issues 0 and 1, but after the great zero issue, I'm going to pull it for a while and see where it goes.

P.S. I think Beowulf is Deathstroke.

    Hey, since you seem to be an avid Girfter reader, I have some questions you might be able to clear up for me. First, why did Cole wear his mask before he got his powers? (like in the flashbacks from this issue and in Team 7) I thought the point was to hide his identity after he became a wanted man and to give the daemonites a face to remember since they said humans all look alike. Also, how does this issue tie in with tne first issue? In issue #1, Grifter wakes up and breaks out of the facility the daemonites were holding him in while in this issue, Warwick busted him out and put him in a hotel. Thanks

    Oh I don't think it's anyone we know, but I do think the First Lantern will turn out to be a human.

      @trailofdead: Well, the head of the project wanted to change his eye color to make him more appealing to the public, and then his mother said something about his eyes after she gave birth but she never finished her sentence. So, I am assuming that his eyes are blue. If that is the case, it changes everything; the story is no longer about the road not taken, but rather the massive, life altering effect that changing something as inconsequential as eye color can have on the human psyche.

      @XImpossibruX: I don't know. I think it could be awesome. Wonder Woman is probably the only woman on the planet (that isn't related to Superman) that could bear Superman's child. I mean, could you imagine a half kryptonian, quarter god, quarter amazonian child? It would be AWESOME!

      @gokuwarrior: For real! That would have been awesome in the battle against Darkseid. I really hope they show her powering up in her other books as well. I loved how her glowing showed all the detail in her costume. Since the reboot, Wonder Woman and Aquaman are my two favorite heroes. I never thought I'd say that in my lifetime.
