    As for Barbara Gordon's legs, Prometheus straight-up volunteered to fix her legs. You'd think that, after he'd been jailed, Batman might have gone through his technology and looked for some kind of spine-Spackle.

    Barbara turned Prometheus down, though. Why would she say yes to Batman?

    Because Prometheus wanted her to sell out the JLA

    Superman/Supergirl: Maelstrom #1 was all right. The art was pretty enough, although very static. I just don't think they could have picked a worse time to put this story out. We're in the middle of a Superman-line crossover and Final Crisis is changing all the Fourth World stuff.

    If anyone's been reading Secret Six, #3 reveals what the card actually is. It's actually a very neat and tidy concept for why everyone would be willing to killmaimburn for it:

    I'm pretty sure it was. Between that, the Engineer's garden in Wildcats and The High's role in Number of the Beast, they're really mining the old Ellis stuff for the Stormwatch relaunch. Not that that's nscerrily bad, mind.

    I would agree that Invincible Iron Man was great.

    Although it pissed me off all over again with the whole Brand New Day bullcrap, because all that stuff about Tony telling Peter that he should unmask and register already happened! Did the totally badass Stark Tech Spider suit just never happen? Because damn. Stupid!

    It still happaned, Tony remembers that Peter worked for him. Tony remembers that he worked together with Spidey, but he is unable to connect the two together or remember that Peter is Spider-Man.

    Why no one remembers his identity is going to be explained in a big Spidey story that starts early next year.

    And, as I've said before, I think it's fantastic that we're getting some concrete information about how the new status quo works over a year after it actually started. You're doin' a heckuva job, Joey.

    And they told us how the status quo would work before that.
    People remember him unmasking. They don't remember who he is.

    Also that Peter and MJ never got married, although they did have a relationship until recently
    All the stories happened, just they weren't married, so we didn't retcon out the Clone Saga
    And the deal was made so that Aunt May would be alive so I mean that's a pretty easy one to figure out

    It is later revealed that Roger was given his powers by the Power Broker. Hardball was then forced to work for the Power Broker, and was ordered to rob an armored car. He used his new powers to knock the car down while coincidentally a little girl entered the street at that time, in the path of the the car. Wonder Man, who just happened to be flying by misinterpreted this as an act of heroism, and swiftly recruited him into the initiative. The Power Broker then sold his "contract" to HYDRA, whose commander is the man who saved him in the bar, Congressman Woodman, which means HYDRA has a double-agent within the Initiative.[7]

    The X-Men/Spider-Man thing was fun, Gage captured the silver age feel really well without having to resort to clunky dialouge and overexposition.

    I'm looking forward to his takes on the other eras.

    Written by CHRISTOS N. GAGE

    We take you back to the days of grungy 90s as The X-Men and Spider-Man face off against Mr. Sinister and Carnage! But this Spidey isn't Peter Parker--it's Ben Reilly, the Spider-Clone! And Wolverine's claws are made of bone, not adamantium! It's radical...it's extreme...and if we coulda put a chromium cover on it, we would have! Put down your pogs and pick this up if only to feast your eyes on Mario Alberti's art! It'll make you say "Cowabunga, dude!"
