    @apokos7: Yeah, I kinda don't care that Snyder didn't say anything but at the same time why would editorial allow Tomasi to end that arc the way he did if they weren't going to make sure it was refere...

    Curious if anyone remembers or knows what happened to two-face after the Batman and Robin arc (briefly named Batman and Two-Face on the cover) he was in. The arc ended with two face shooting shooting ...

    The writing was fairly tough to read, Hughes writing teenage dialogue was choppy at best. Nobody pronounces the "W" in WTF as "double you", it's over annunciated. Quite a few other things didn't read ...

    @doc-holiday: there really is no difference because if someone read a supergirl comic but not superman comic they also would not always know what he is up to, even when supergirl is facing huge proble...

    @ultimatepower6: I really wish they somehow just got rid of Damian since he seems to be generally ignored in the main batman title. Morrison was the only one who did him justice anyway (although Tomas...

    Im almost upset at how good this was because my pull is is so full.

  • TheMantisShrimp posted a message in the forum topic What's Next for the X-Men After Apocalypse. on the X-Men board

    I hate to say it but they need to reboot the whole X-Men franchise. The continuity and ages of people make no sense, which is a problem when you specifically go out of your way to place a date to each...

    @lemmycaution: I also skip most of the news sections so that adds in too. I'd rather leave most of that to be a surprise.

    @lemmycaution: right? I blaze through these podcasts now and maybe fast forward through about 1/3 to 1/2 just to avoid listening to all that.

    n52 Superman is the worst, any way they can rationalize him being gone and being replaced by post-crisis superman is fine by me.

    Why is everyone so lame on this forum? The reviewer just happens to like Civil War more than AoA. The numbers of characters was probably handled to Tony's liking more so in Civil War than AoA. Maybe s...

    Why does his helmet not even have wings painted on the side. He needs some kind of wings.

    @doc-holiday: a lot of those sound awesome. Who cares how much content is put out so long as it's enjoyable, just like this issue was.

    While the backup was kinda cool, I really wish there was more Noto story or no backup with reduced price.

    @d9000: it's partially a contrast thing but I've never liked how his n52 costume looks. I personally love him in trunks and think I'd like pants. There are also too many lines all over it, which most ...

    The one thing I wanted from rebirth was for Superman to get his trunks back. It's so much better than the belt DC!!! Hopefully Supes will at least get some good stories, I'm convinced he was the most ...
