Re: Dc and the new 52

Hal checked out of the JL about 4 issues ago. The league mentions finding replacement members in that issue, but it has not come up in JL since.

Re: All DC comics to relaunch with Issue #1 in September

For some reason it seems as though Justice League is the place for Wonder Woman's backstory exposition, because her own title is devoted more to some trippy existentialist romp by the Greek gods than the title character. Heck, WW's guest slot in Batwoman seems more "in character" than her own book. ...

Re: Soloing...how easy or hard is it for the system?

I've never run it for solo play, but on several occasions I've run groups of two players. The super-hero genre lends itself to this fairly well; unlike most genres where defeated heroes would be disposed of, naturally super-villains will instead place the heroes in a ridiculously contrived death tra...

Re: All DC comics to relaunch with Issue #1 in September

I can understand the logic behind changing Cap to Shazam, given the legal issues of putting the name Captain Marvel on products. It doesn't make the idea any less stupid tho, since the character has had more exposure in animated series and video games in the last 10 years than he has in the comics,...

Re: Event books..

And with what books are available for DC, the rules work is already done in terms of statting things out. Sure, you might need to spend a little time tweaking your specific Black Lanterns out, but a read through of your comics and with the H&V and Universe books you should be good to go.

Re: Muslim superhero, Simon Baz, joining Green Lantern lineup

The next big crossover event, that's what. I'm sure it'll require you to buy no less than a dozen books, that you don't normally buy, just so you can figure out what's actually going on. As well as providing DC with another sales boost for the first quarter of next year. I can't say whats going on ...

Re: Muslim superhero, Simon Baz, joining Green Lantern lineup

Geoff killed off Tempest, but the name Aqualad was already up for grabs, as Gar hadn't used it in forever. True, and I don't mean to disrespect the new Aqualad; as you stated, he was an interesting character who unfortunately vanished under the New 52 reboot. But since Gar was long past being Aqual...

Re: Muslim superhero, Simon Baz, joining Green Lantern lineup

I don't have an issue with DC trying to add a little more diversity to its comics, when it's done well, and not forced down people's throats. The perfect example of that was the new Aqualad (who'd gone missing in the Nu52). He was a well written, well developed character, with an interesting backst...

So, he's the 13th Green Warrior? Somebody call Antonio Banderas with the script :mrgreen:

Re: All DC comics to relaunch with Issue #1 in September

To be honest, I like the idea. http://www.comicsalliance.com/2012/08/22/superman-wonder-woman-romance-justice-league-12/ Ditto. But I'm a little disappointed that the article fails to mention that this pairing has been explored in canon as well, most noteably in the late 80s post-COIE relaunch of t...

Re: All DC comics to relaunch with Issue #1 in September

Now I've seen the death of the entire DC Universe... And I don't see the kind of thoughtful consideration of who these characters are... And, unlike previous reboots, I don't have any real hope of seeing the originals return and make things right... I dunno, this Pandora character would seem to be ...
