    December 30, 2020 3:12 pm As a martial arts movie fan I see a huge missed opportunity here. Wonder Woman usually uses sword and shield in the comics and her fight scenes could be the most impressive and spectacular of the trinity. Instead, the prehensile lariat does all the work (even some mjolnir-style flight). If Max Lord were kept as a psychic, that would be an easy way to explain Barbara's turn from best friend to rival and the lasso is the natural way for Diana to break that hold. It's weird to see Geoff Johns reinventing the wheel with these characters.
    December 17, 2020 5:31 pm I googled his name and got really concerned, but that's a different Christopher Cantwell. He's probably tired of that confusion.
    March 23, 2020 12:45 pm I CANNOT believe they didn't talk about Jimmy Olsen this week. That book had a total patron-power in the Arm-Fall-Off boy and his family with various detachable bodyparts. It was a good kinda weird
    December 10, 2019 2:31 pm As I read that issue 6 of Up in the Sky, I kept thinking of that parable about the shepherd leaving the flock of 99 sheep to find the one that got lost. Needless to say, it resonated with me.
    August 19, 2019 10:51 am So Lois actually poked fun at Plastic Man being on the team when there's a guy with the same powers who's actually a master detective (Elongated Man). Made me happy as a DC Fan, maybe Ralph will be involved later on.
    July 15, 2019 9:52 am No joke, I also said "that's a halberd" along with Ned! The really weird thing is that my wife did not roll her eyes.
    June 3, 2019 8:53 am Anybody else notice that the Martian Delite ice cream in Clark's apartment had Oreo Chunks. Great little reference to Martian Manhunter being obsessed with Oreos in the old Justice League book. (although I thought they always called them chocos to avoid copyrights?)
    May 22, 2019 10:55 am I just listened to Episode to 682 where you mentioned a Porkins interest. You guys need to read this great Porkins/Biggs story that I recently read in Star Wars Age of Rebellion Special #1 that came out a month ago. It really made me wish there was still a Rogue Squadron ongoing book...
    April 29, 2019 11:10 am True, Didio is holding the company back. There are a lot of good books getting published right now and hopefully in the wake of Bendis' success they'll realize that character development should trump Didio's mandates about misery. I do feel that they are just spinning their wheels with Batman and the JL book that's stuck in multiverse origin mythology. HiC was a waste of a chance to tell a unique story and a violation of Wally's character.
    April 29, 2019 9:42 am well in Fantasia, I remember the the winged horses tucking their legs up against their body when soaring through the air. It's probably also that way in Hercules, haven't seen that movie in a while though. Maybe her horse is just a fan of the "airwalk" in skateboarding
