    oh shit

    look at the Teen Titans cover

    where the Titans of Tomorrow beat up the Justice League

    and in the bottom left corner is

    Martian Manhunter

    not in his shitty new costume!

    probably just an artist error

    but also the flash is in the league, too

    Since Miss Martian is there, I guess they're viewing Superboy's return as inevitable given the current course

    But Kid Flash Future is there, too

    so maybe Bart comes back as Kid Flash!

    I mean, it's not Impulse

    but at least he might not die!

    nothing special anyway

    That's different. I mean, of course there's going to be a Flash, and it could be any white guy under that mask.

    But I guess the same could be said of future Superman as well. I mean there has to be a Superman, and of course he's going to look like Superman. He could be a new clone, for all we know, since another clone is bound to look like future Superboy due to being so genetically similar.

    Why would they spoil this? Why white out the cover and then reveal it in the solicit?

    but he seems fine on the Search for Ray Palmer cover

    although he's apparently back to the crab mask

    So Kyle, Jason and Donna are Earth-1 versions of Apollo, Midnighter and the Engineer respectively?


    That's actually pretty awesome.

    I didn't even think of that

    but that's weird since Apollo is Superman

    Yeah, it's kind of weird. Midnighter/Jason makes almost perfect sense, and I can kinda see Donna/Engineer.

    Hows Peter Milligan as a writer? I haven't read anything of his, so with him doing Infinity Inc, my curiosity has been triggered.

    When I first saw that Parallax solicitation I thought it was heralding the return of Superboy Prime. Someone in one of the recent DC panels announced that he'd be turning up in all the Sinestro Corps hullaballoo. Besides, they've done the, "Kyle is granted enormous power and almost turns evil/insane" story twice now. Why tread over old ground?

    Also, who're the two battling figures on the Suicide Squad cover? I mean, one's obviously Grant DaNasty, but who's the other one?

    I wish they'd kept Kubert on covers for Countdown, especially after Benes and whoever is doing the ones for September.

    Why are we all assuming Kyle will be Parallax when:

    A. Parallax is pretty obviously powering the Sinestro Corps at the moment

    B. Kyle is clearly on a superhero team at the moment

    Van Sciver said it was very tricky talking about the event, “because there's a lot of stuff happening in the Special which affects the rest of the DCU.” Van Sciver also said that in the 54-page special, fans will also get more information as to the current status of Superboy-Prime. There was some potentially bad news. Van Sciver remarked, “Kyle Rayner fans may not like us after June.”

    Yes, so Kyle is both possessed by a homicidal fear-eating force and on a multiverse traveling superhero team at the same time.

    Clearly, that's the most likely option.

    I dunno what all the fuss is about, but if they're screwing around with Kyle, I'm going to be pretty upset. I need my Green Lanterns to remain good guys, thanks.

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    Well he'll still be a good guy, but first he has to murder the entire Corps, get replaced by a young upstart (I'm thinking a teenaged lesbian eskimo), die, and then come back ten years later when he claims he was possessed by the ghost of Space Hitler.

    Yeah because Marvel's suddenly going to start dramatically altering their history so that readers are no longer sure which characters did what, what's in or out of continuity, or why characters are acting completely unlike themselves.

    DC's already got that market cornered, so really, what'd be the point in even trying to compete?

    "Suddenly"? Marvel hasn't had a consistent continuity or clear characterization for most of its heavy hitters for years. It's just now coming to a head.

    I have no idea what you're talking about on the DC front. The bullshit during IC and immediately after aside I can't think of any major gaffes.
