    I thought Dark Wolverine was actually pretty awesome, especially the scene of Gargan
    All venomed out one step from eating Dakens head until he hears Sentry tell him to stop

    Though that pheremone power is possibly one of the stupidest things Ive ever seen.

    I think it's a good thing. If Daken was able to seduce women and manipulate men without the aid of a power, he'd seem like too much of a Mary Sue.

    The woman seemed pretty happy just to have banged Wolverine. The power just made her forget her job position.

    And take up a new position.

    But with Bullseye, using that stuff seems pointless, he'd be happy to kill Daken anyway. Its a silly power along with his random under-claw.

    So Spider-Man. Good and bad.

    They do just ignore the bullet, or not so much ignore as hand wave. Apparently his mask is special, only the mask mind you, designed specifically for him to fuck up apparently and get caught and shot in the face. And noone else uses this material why?

    It was purely to draw people into the next comic and I know they do stuff like that all the time but this is so blatant its insulting. Hal gettnig his hand cut off? Ok how will they fix that, at least he will live. Gunshot to the face? Lets just ignore it.

    And Norman has ANOTHER
    baby.

    Jesus christ, talking about beating a dead horse. How? The guys an asshole, how does he get these people to comply so happily?

    And what happened to Menace? From ugly freak to some kind of...I dunno...Ultimate Goblin hybrid?

    Plus after all hed been through, peter still conflicted over Harry.

    Come to think of it, the only good part was what Peter did to Normans face, thats a pretty brutal (for Spider-Man) thing to do.

    EDIT: And Norman admitting that he just tried to flat out execute his arch nemesis without any characteristic grandeur to it, not a Norman thing to do at all.

    Detective Comics - Featuring Batwoman. The story was pretty good. From what I can tell, its a continuation of the events that took place during 52. However, there was one thing that kind of bothered me:
    I didn't particularly care for the way Rucka was writing Kate. She seemed really out of character from how I remember her in 52. Not only that, but the tattoos and outfit she was wearing were really out of place. I thought Kate Kane was a rich woman of privilege? She seemed almost goth and self deprecating to me, which is not what I remember at all.

    She was pretty out of character, but I don't really think the version we saw in 52 was established enough (much less interesting enough) to make me reject the revision. What was she, really, except for a lesbian Bruce Wayne?

    Did Messiah War just completely fall apart at the end? Just going by reader response, it seemed to start out pretty strong but has just been out there grinding gears until the finale.

    Moment of the week by far was Norman's face when he was yelling at Namor. If anyone could scan it, it'd be wonderful because it's hilarious in my opinion.
    BECAUSE I TOLD YOU TO!!

    I'm a bit disappointed in the new Sif costume design. =/

    OBTW, Dr. Strange was probably still SS in Thor because JMS and Coipel probably started the issue sometime around late 2007.

    Superman #689 was again very good, and like Hadji wrote, it seems to be the most important Superman book at the moment. It's a very good Mon-El around the world issue, with great art. Non-spoiler scans below:

    s689c.jpg

    And Gotham City Sirens was good as well. March's art is very good, and reminds me of Tony Akins' work on Jack of Fables. He also in one issues draws the best Harley Quinn out there. Very good issue to compliment Streets of Gotham.

    And now, for some funny between the gaggle of Gotham girls:
    Poison Ivy save Catwoman from a new wannabe villain because she's still weak from her heart being cut open and Jason Todd beating her up. Ivy has been brainwashing the Riddler and using his place as a hideout, as she gave away her 30 million Catwoman gave her for helping with Hush to a rainforest charity:

    Were those international heroes like Von Hammer and Beaumont original characters or Z-Listers? The only ones I recognized were Freedom Beast and Congorilla.

    International z-listers who do exist but were one-offs. There was a Mexico hero Iman who appeared in a Superman annual early in the decade (he was that spanish robot suit guy in Final Crisis, btw)

    Ah, some of them seemed interesting enough at a glance.

    Also, Elektra had a badass moment.

    I'm just glad Rise of the Olympians is over now. I just wasn't ever into this arc. Even the last issue felt pretty shallow to me.

    Also, one thing really bugged me.
    How was she able to one-shot kill a god (Ares, the god of war) yet she was barely able to beat Genocide, who was just a reanimated corpse? Basically, what I got out of this 8 issue arc is that Ares is a giant pussy and Genocide is more powerful than a god.

    I might be totally off on this one but, during Dark Avengers... was anyone seeing Tommy Lee Jones as Norman? I swear they were using Jones as the basis for his face and expressions.

    quite blatantly so. like samuel l jackson as nick fury (or simon pegg in the boys) i think its some tentative movie casting going on.

    it goes back further than i'd thought, as julian sands is totally in durham red...

    I noticed that but it didnt really bother me as you tend to get the same problem with just about every plot device reed richards makes. All that world bending sci fi tech and still no cure for cancer reed?

    He must have a healing factor now or something to deal with constantly getting his ass handed to him. And then he can have metal claws on top of that. He's already got the adamantium, just go all the way.

    That Elektra moment was badass, but I thought the moment in that same issue
    Where he said, " God, I love watching you bleed." Then she took the discharged bullet to cauterize the wound on her lip,

    was soooo much more badass.

    And no deadpool, aside from appearances in Ms. Marvel... I think.

    Yes.
    Genocide is the reanimated corpse of Wonder Woman. But that doesn't change the fact that she was able to kill the god of war with a single attack, while being completely helpless for like 6 issues against a zombie.

    How out of date is New Avengers that Ms Marvel is still about and
    THe hood has just been sealed off from Dormammu?

    I liked the Hood but with every issue they're making him seem more and more like a bit player.

    Also enjoying Normans descent.

    So, re: Strange and Voodoo, what they did to Hood
    Since Dormamu is gone, does that mean any active Hood in the other books is Loki giving him some different powerset?

    Every other book has Hood still interacting with Dormammu directly, but who knows what the chronology works out as.

    Still, this week's New Avengers has the interview from Dark Avengers, and as of the first issue of Dark Avengers Carol Danvers should be "dead".

    I imagine Loki is just going to undo the seal.

    Youd think the Hood would have better security in his hospital room though.

    I wish they showed Loki using his powers more often. Even if it's just shit like in those Matt Fraction one shots, where someone grabbed him and he became hundreds of butterflies or moths or something. It just seems like she (He, now? Sif has her body back. But he could still take a female form if he so chose) is always just sitting there smirking.

    I just didnt notice any guards or anything or even a secure room that Hood was in. Youd be expecting some of his cohorts to come for him.

    I really hope The Hood gets out of Dark Reign okay, i'd like to see him in a permanent position as the leader of the business orientated super-villains, if nothing else he's the only character to take a stand and beat the crap out of a furry, you've got to respect him for that.

    DW: That's a fair point, though I also think it wouldn't be a good idea to steal Parker away in the state he was in. He'd probably die in transit.

    I too would like the hood to stick about but without Dormammus power he doesnt seem to have much going for him, he got beaten by White Fang or Silver Fang, whoever it was. And I dont know how theyd keep the bck and forth going between him and Dormammu without him taking over completely.

    There's a ton of magic artifacts around. Surely they could throw a different piece of clothing on him that would give him enough power to stay in the game.

    Oh, yeah, I had a question for anyone who read Thor.
    Was there any significance in that Thor saw himself in Mjolnir right after it was repaired? It seemed odd to me.

    Are you sure?
    It's power comes from the Odinforce Thor had in him, which was taken from him to repair the hammer.

    Re: Thor
    As I understood it, Dr. Strange said that he will basically take the Odinforce out of Thor and imbue the hammer with it, making it whole again, and binding it to Thor in a very permanent manner. I assumed that Thor seeing himself in the repaired Mjolnir was supposed to either represent that the hammer is now almost like a reflection of Thor, OR that that was the representation of the Odinforce that was now in the hammer. Or both.

    Not sure yet how I feel about Thor losing the Odinforce. Guess it depends on the stories they tell.

    I really wish this comic came out more often, so that I would still remember what happened in the previous issue when a new one comes out.
