    I wonder if Lord Havok and the Extremists is actually trying to be '90s as all Hell, or if it's just a side effect of having a variation of "extreme" right in the title.

    Two way out of proportion right hands.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    It's because you're a racist!






    Or not. It does look pretty weird.

    Also, yay for more GL. I just hope that Final Crisis doesn't have a huge impact on the ongoing storyline in GL and GLC. I don't need to get sucked into another event.

    "52 Pick-Up” concludes as Booster Gold journeys back in time to save the best friend he ever had – the Blue Beetle! But can Booster stop Maxwell Lord before someone else dies in Ted Kord’s place? And will Ted Kord let that happen?

    fuck, they're gonna pull the "Ted won't let any one else die for him" card

    I don't really follow Green Arrow but the potential that Connor Hawke bites it is pretty lame.

    I'm conflicted about Ollie as Green Arrow.

    I've always thought that Ollie should have never died, just lost his arm as originally planned. Then he could have stuck arond and helped Connor out as GA and we could have a fresh GA but still have Ollie and the character that we love in the book.

    This is a rant that doesn't belong here.

    I really hope Johns will be a little more creative than that. I'm not really expecting Beetle to get resurrected, but I hope that whatever way he keeps him dead is better than, "Oh no, if I come back to life the world goes to Hell!" It's just really cliche. There was a great issue of Justice League Adventures that had Chronos going back in time trying to save his brother's life, and I thought it handled the whole "preventing death through time travel" issue great.

    I hope so. But man, why couldn't they have just released a few huge hardcovers with all the issues? It seems kind of weird to release the stuff that's already been collected for years. Maybe it'll have some cool bonus features. I'd just really love a JLI Omnibus.

    I also hope it doesn't get cancelled like the Suicide Squad showcase.

    that pissed me off to no extent.

    Honestly, I think they are testing the waters with this hardcover. That's why it doesn't have a volume number.
