Gotta admit Lex's dialogue made me laugh. 'Be grateful I let you keep your marriage'.


Who is Henry Bendix? I am not familiar with the character.


Do we know yet how Jeremiah Arkham is related to this Orkham family?

They're doing that again? Around 2009 they already brought in Magog and even gave him his own series.

I picked up a few of the original World's Finest volume and one thing stood out, it refers to the Superman/ Jimmy Olsen team like they are crime fighting partners. Would that not be Superman/ Supergirl? In fact in the Brainiac/Clayface II team up had it Jimmy unable to work at Superman's side after taking kryptonite dust and had to switch places with Robin. Robin and Jimmy couldn't fulfill the other's role that well. It seemed so odd. Jimmy is not trained to fight crime let alone endanger himself in the line of Brainiac or Darkseid!


Also, Cadmus is it a executive branch funded government operation? Meanwhile Star Labs is a high profile technology imdependant company? I get the two mixed up.

Tamaki is no longer going to launch Green Lantern: Hal Jordan, but instead Jeremy Adams who has knocked it out of the park with Wally West in the lead of The Flash. This is welcome news!

This is of no surprise considering his run. On the surface it is like the first 40 issues of New Teen Titans being celebrated with the same lineup as the 1999-2003 Titans title did in reference to the original Teen Titans. However, I am weary of the Diverse Heroes of the World interfering and joining. I would rather this be the opportunity for Barbara Gordon and Linda Danvers to interact with the Titans. Taylor has done very well on Nightingale except for two things. First, we know that Dick is the leader of tomorrow's heroes and Bruce's greatest accomplishment but we don't need to be reminded every few pages. Additionally, we have a serial killer still roaming around 23 issues later and Dick does not seem bothered, but instead taking up Taylor's 'all criminals deserve a fair trial and aren't inherently evil' stchick.


DC did a 180 with Hal Jordan and I look forward to his solo title starting up again. The promise of him being Earth bound is reassuring and something that has had little time since he was restored back in 2004. There are a few of his Earth based villains that are heavily underused and only Black Hand was updated to fit the cosmic setting.

In the Superman relaunch by Joshua Williamson, Lex will hand over ownership of Lexcorp to Superman and it's rechristened Supercorp

I wonder if this is DC's way of mimicking the Parker Industries era of Spider-Man, but showing how more involved it can be by including Clark's marriage and family.

Reading The One Minute War Barry and Iris are not married and Barry is drawn to look younger than Wally? Linda is on her second pregnancy. I find Barry bland and am Team Wally so I am missing something here.


Also, do you feel like Team Flash is suffering from the same Batfamily problem. It's swelling in number and the characters are going to get camps of fans and hate on the others while the characters don't get to do much because of so many with a similar power set? I already find Black Wally and Impulse unnecessary and prefer Barry absorbed into the Speed Force.

oooh I might be in for Steel. Simon Spurrier did a great shortlived Constantine run so I know he will do great with Flash.

Looks like Grant Morrison's retirement from DC was short-lived, he's writing something new for a Pride special that involves the Multiversity

Batgirl/Barbara Gordon makes a cameo alongside Supergirl. We see the conclusion of a mission that had Mxyz and Bat-Mite impersonate Batgirl and Supergirl. Just like the Manhattan over Boston I really want to read it. Man, the classic characters and a modern serialized feel with fun. Why can't comics be like this with all the dread, woke, and events seizing the industry?! Who else is loving this book?

Yes, it's great to see what Jeremy Adams has waiting for Hal Jordan. Too bad he can't juggle Hal and Wally simultaneously. I am glad Wally gets to retain the lead with new writer Si Spurrier. I read generic good things about him, but what has Spurrier done previously.

When the relaunch in 2016 occurred Superman got his marriage back along with a son. It's great having him married once more, but how do Superman fans like him being a father? We don't see his son as an infant and then the further age acceleration. I get the idea that Clark being a father is received well, but not to an 18 year old. Perhaps because of the lack of time Jon spent as a 10 year old and character portrayal after hyper aging. If a liberal agenda was not Jon's hyperaged personality would it make him better received or the idea of Superman having an 18ish year old son not something wanted?

Similarly, Wally West is an expectant father to a third child. Meanwhile, Barry seems to have lost his marriage to Iris and is in a serious dating relationship with her instead. Barry is also drawn so young. It's like Wally is nearly as old as Barry. How can the Titans generation grow without catching up to their mentors age? It's noticeable in the storylines and the art with Flash and all of this Dick Grayson greatness Taylor is showcasing makes him 25ish while Bruce is 35, but are father-son in relationship? Donna has a big sister/little sister relationship with Diana unlike the guys having father/son dynamics or in Wally's case uncle there needs to be about 15 year age difference for the dynamics to work. Being big brother or sister /little brother or sister might work with Clark/Kara and Diana/Donna, but not the others.

I did not know she was called anything else. I am confused as to why she is not Billy's actual sister. It's not like its for pseudo-creepy romantic option like Venus or Iris on television since she is paired with Freddie.

Having read One Minute War, it completely clears Wally from the absurd should have been indie story, Heroes In Crisis as the heroes were organics and spit out by the Speed Force. Funny enough, I had NO IDEA WHO ANY OF THEM ARE except for Steel, who I did not know was killed off a second time. He and Roy were the only somebodies arguably. As a self-contained story it was solid and a good focus on Wally while giving meaning to most of the speedsters.

What writing credits does Si Spurrier have? I was curious what we might expect after the vindication of the true Wally West by Jeremey Adams. If he had to leave the best way to do so is for a earth-bound Hal Jordan!
