Not only has Superman killed in the comic books, as well as crippled normal innocents through his actions and other terrible things, he killed a de-powered (read: effectively human and completely defenceless) Zod in Superman II, shortly before Lois kills Faora. Note that this one YouTube user regards this as the "greatest Superman moment ever". The internet reaction to MoS's ending is one of the most depressing examples of mob psychology I've ever seen.

I always thought Iceman had a chip on his shoulder but now I see he has a dick on his shoulder too.

Oh look, it's that one face that McKelvie draws on everyone. Probably the only face he can draw.

That Captain Murka and and Jubilee A+X looks interesting - a character I absolutely despise along with one of my favourites.

"Decided it was time to leave"

You mean angrily walked out because they couldn't stand working there any more? The latest in a long line over the last few years? You make it sound like they wanted to get back to their gardening or something.

Why do Americans see sex and violence as equally "dark" things? Sex isn't dark, it isn't evil, it isn't corrupting. It's like putting food and poison in the same group - "Oh, I never leave my kids around with food and poison!" There's something creepily neutered about a lot of mainstream American comics, a weird puritanical streak running through them.

Maybe there is too much violence, that really is an innately bad thing, but it's really jarring to have comic where everyone sleeps in their clothes, no one has sex, people don't swear they just say "Oh well god $%&! it", but then in the same book you have a man being ripped in half or someone being shot in the face. You think if you actually write "fuck" on the page, you'll summon the Devil or something? Like you're casting a spell so you have to swap in random symbols to break the magic? And you're so ashamed of your own body that depicting it is some awful evil, even in the book that has someone bleeding to death in an alleyway? You can show what's under the clothes as long as it's under the skin too?

@alwaysbeclothing: None of that was Golden Age, it's off by about 20 years and nearly at the end of the Silver Age - and that's just the first appearance.

Anyway, I think this new more slippery, lithe Copperhead makes a lot more sense with the serpentine namesake than some big buff guy.

@nappystr8: to be fair, Marvel have done this kind of cover a few times before. They're also just doing it for this one special thing, not every single cover for a month for purely gimmicky reasons. Either way, it seems like an odd thing to announce and make such a big deal about. I see this done on magazines pretty often and they don't make a big song and dance about it.

@cafeterialoca: Try reading it again and paying more attention this time. They mention a couple of times that there are a lot of truancies. From their point of view, the kids just haven't been turning up to school, a pretty common thing in all schools. What is a little strange is that there are still a load of other students that could be there but aren't. They're not all with Arcade.

Have you guys considered bringing in decimals to your review scores so we can tell the difference between these endless 5/5 reviews? I mean, is this issue of a videogame spin-off really the peak of comics?
