I know I'm on the minority but... I have no issues with Hal being the titular Lantern. I like Kyle and all, specially the concept of there being only ONE Lantern in the universe, but I think they are doing fine with Jordan.

The only problems with the Green Lantern line is that it seems, to me that most writers have no clue about what to write for the character or its stories. Most of the times, it's same old "corps are no more", "members leave to join another corps then come back", "stop the end of the universe", "guardians has skeletons in their closet" and etc.

Really, I wish they'd do something different with them.

So is nobody going to talk about Carol's base in Captain Marvel?

Because it's a goddamn Batcave.

She kept the bathing suit.

DC editorial can pay attention to one thing in regards to covers enough to have them pulped, and then completely miss another with interior page numbering.

In their Legion of Superheroes feature article and checklist at the end of all today's releases, they say readers should check out Superman#15, 17 and....6. Uh Oh.
And it shows the Superman cover they've withdrawn!

Shazam delayed yet again...

Reading the comments on Bleeding Cool, and someone has claimed Sina Grace has been hinting at getting a crack at the book, so it could be being relaunched soon, or that DC have kicked Johns off it.

So Powers of X 2
Moira has united both Xavier and Magneto showing how her previous lives all lead to the Sentinels taking over. They assign a mission to Cyclops to stop Master Mold who takes it at first hesitantly but once Xavier and Magneto insist it must happen he does a complete 180 and complies immediately. I'm wondering if Kraoka could be doing some form of brainwashing to the X-men. That would explain the scene from House of X one where they appear to be spit up from the island.
Love everything Hickman has been doing. A couple of months ago I couldn't imagine anything making me want to shell out 4.99 a week for X-Men but this for sure does.

Marvel, you can make Carol like other heroes as much as you want, doesn't mean people are going to buy the book. Also, didn't Jess switch back into her old costume.

Its the fact that Cosmic DC just isn't that interesting. There isn't really much out there. Cosmic Marvel on the other hand is epic as hell

How many times did Marvel revisit Starbrand? I think I recall reading that Hickman's Avengers run had a new take on the character.
Counting this? Twice. I wouldn't even call the 1 Million BC version a revisit since it didn't really get used.

Hal fucks shit up again. Yet people still call him "the greatest green lantern......" He will never be that is Kyle period Kyle the only lantern who gets ignored and bastardized. White Lantern. The Torch Barrier. Original Ion. The one who greatest achievement was to recreate the guardians and Oa which lead to Hal's ring to reignite the battery. Hal's ring not Hal himself.
Greatest Green Lantern. Kyle's achievements are not about being Green Lantern in the end, his GL tenure has been rather limited especially once the corps came back. Kyle's probably the greatest Lantern but not specifically Green Lantern.

Hal's GL resume is what makes him greatest GL, but again, that is specifically about what GLs do not the wider cosmic hero stuff Rayner did.

Whoa,
there's something UNDER the rock?

I always assumed The Thing was made of rocks. Guess I need to actually read it once in a while.
Could have been due to the countdown changing him back to a man, but I think we've seen there's organic parts beneath his skin before.


Wait,
can't as in not mechanically able, or can't as in Alicia's not a three-car garage? >__>
Both, probably. Thing's probably got a thing, but being made of rock it's probably not exactly the most pleasurable experience for anyone involved. But the idea was if he was normal human, they'd be able to have normal human babies then.

He does wear the blue trunks for a reason. I'm also pretty sure he had sex with She-Thing once.

I'm wondering if the different years are really different Moira X timelines, not different parts of the same timeline. Specifically that Apocalypse seems to be leading a heroic group in 100.

No, this Spider-Woman costume is perfect and never going away.

Four of the Secret Six are now known

Supergirl, Hawkman, Shazam and Blue Beetle


The final two will be revealed in Batman/Superman#4

https://www.newsarama.com/46515-four...-revealed.html

That Shazam project Sina Grace teased? King Shazam, a tie-in one-shot.

Cebulski talks about his approach to events and promotes Spider-Man: Full Circle. Each writer on this book has ten pages of content each, ending on a cliffhanger for the next writer, with Nick Spencer tasked with both contributing and then tying it all together to fit continuity. Turns out Johnathan Hickman starts it off and doesn't make it easy on anyone to follow up

I subscribed for a while. But then I was getting more stuff I wasn't interested in for the price I was paying.. If they modified their one year plan, so you could pay monthly for the same price per box as the one lump sum, with the caveat that you couldn't cancel until your one year commitment was over, I might have stayed with them longer.
