Let me start off by saying that I don’t think there was a single characterization in this book that didn’t…

April 29, 2011 12:58 pm On another note, does anyone else find this whole concept slightly odd just from a story-telling point of a view. I could be totally wrong here, but doesn't the whole world know he's an alien? I mean, I know everyone knows he lives in and is based in America now, but it's not like they'd have any reason to assume he was born and raised in the US (unless he's come out publicly and said that - I don't know for sure.) But I don't get why anyone would assume his actions necessarily speak for America's government any more than, say, Johnny Depp's actions speak for France. 
April 29, 2011 12:48 pm @conor  True, but I was speaking mostly metaphorically. Superman, in general, kicks ass. If the USA supports everything he does, then it will also kick ass.
April 28, 2011 10:11 pm Why is no one bringing up the obvious solution? Why doesn't the United States just man up and back whatever decision Superman makes? He's clearly never wrong. Supes stays American and the USA starts kicking all kinds of ass. Problem = solved.
April 28, 2011 10:06 pm Bendis is writing? So I can experience repetitive banter as if I'm the one actually having it?
Spider-Man: That's tight, right?
Luke Cage: Tight.
Spidey: Tight?
Luke: Tight.
Me: Sweet. 
April 28, 2011 6:11 pm @skestra - are you sure that's the end of their entire run? I had read that was the last issue of this storyline, but nothing definitive about if it was their final issue on Detective or not.
April 28, 2011 5:25 pm That art by Ryan Sook in Action floored me. (The story was really good, too.)

Also, did those bankers in Detective get the day off? 'Cause you know you've got a crap job when they find a whale in the lobby, and then make you stay and work the rest of the day. 
April 28, 2011 5:11 pm Looks like Captain America can suck it. Superman just became Captain Earth. (Not to be confused with Captain Planet.)

And the whole set-up and logic behind the move makes perfect sense. However, now I just really want to read the Elseworlds story where Superman goes in the opposite direction and decides "Screw it. These east coast elitists don't share my values. I'm only saving Kansans from now on."
April 28, 2011 3:11 pm I think I'm finally getting past the fact that those aren't actually the X-Men in the first class. Now if I can completely suppress the uber-nerd voice in my head over the next month, I think I'm really going to love this movie.
April 26, 2011 1:00 am So if this happened in June 2010, why is it just being reported on now? Lots of things about this story just seem odd, including the aforementioned "only 5 copies" in existence of ASM #2. Especially since I've seen one in my LCS. It certainly wasn't in the greatest condition, but it was most definitely there.
April 22, 2011 4:23 pm Oh, and I also admit to waiting for trades with Vertigo series. I want those books on my bookshelf and so that I can easily lend them to friends. I think that's what most of the people I know who love those books do. I really hope that's not what's concerning them about the viability of the line.
