It's just a reprint of Tales To Astonish #88 & 89, so no big revelations here. But the real reason I wanted to share this with you: there are some things that are the same, no matter what country we're in:
It IS a small world, after all....
And if they want to bring back Barry Allen? I don't agree with that, but I can be one board for that without too much crying. But I fear that said resurrection, under the current regime, just means they're just going to flush away 20 years of character growth and supporting cast of Wally. He will lose his mag, lose his JLA position, lose his supporting cast, and be relegated to appearing in the Titans and an occasional Mark Waid written Brave and the Bold.
Check back in a year and tell me I was wrong.
Question from the audience: With Barry Allen back, does DC have a better plan for what to do with Barry than "what you had for Wally?"Oooh. Foreseeable future. Part of the Titans team. No mention of his own mag, or his supporting characters, or his spot in the JLA. That's reassuring.
Ethan Van Sciver: "Oh of course."
DiDio: "Wally will be around. He's part of the Titans team right now, and he'll be part of that team for the foreseeable future."
This is really important, so here's some close-ups:
Lessons to be learned from this:
A) In the 60's, dating tips were considered a "public service."
B) "BEM Shows Up!" is kind of, well, lazy, isn't it? All he has to do is show up??
C) Dude, if you're not a perfect blend of brains, emotion and muscle, don't even try. Get used to being alone.
D) Girls are ultra-picky, but guys will take anything in a skirt (unless, of course, someone can find me another riff from the National Social Welfare Assembly where a fussy guy rejects 3 different women until they merge into one).
E) BEM is clearly a Carrgite.
F) Uhhh, I'm not sure, but is this cartoon implicitly condoning group sex?? Think about it, won't you?
Who said DC comics didn't swing in the 60's, baby??
Thank you, National Social Welfare Assembly, for making us love again...
Newsarama: So. So in essence, you were handed a plate where between Death of the New Gods and Countdown, Orion appeared to have died twice. Picking up with him here, did he wander to the docks from the battle in Countdown #1, or are his terminal injuries from something else?
Newsarama: And so you were left with a handful of continuity issues as result - – why didn’t the Guardians call a 1011 when all the other New Gods died? Why didn’t Superman recount his experiences in Death of the New Gods when he was talking about the New Gods to the JLA? How did the villains capture J’onn? Obviously, if you dealt in all the minutia of every storyline since Identity Crisis or earlier, you’d go nuts – so what was your personal line in the sand that you used in writing Final Crisis in regards to what “mattered” and what didn’t?
