Secret Origins #2

I don't really get the point in this series, at least re-telling the origins of characters that already had their origins told during #0 month. I'm a little behind on my reviews but this one was short enough for me to feel like writing something about it.

Nightwing spoilers

I didn't get the issue because of scans online. No, not because of the Helena B. controversy but rather the writing. Thoughts and SPOILERS below.

Why wear the Bat Suit and the Disguise?

Apparently there are more Robins than we know about. It looks like Dick, Jason, Tim, Steph, Carrie and Damian were all lucky they stayed on his good side.

More September Covers for Futures End tie ins

No surprise here but I think Booster Golds' my favorite. Not just for the Jurgens art but the better costume (which was already shown in the JLI Annual.) It does have a 90s feel but better than the footie pj look. I know it's just a cover so it doesn't mean it reflects the content inside but man Roy looks like a jackass.

New Figures and Bombshell Covers

DCC has pics of Hawkman and Stargirl as well as the next waves of Batman the Animated series.

The Bombshells variant covers now have Carol, Lois, Talia, and others. There are some good ones there but the Kori cover feels a little off to me. Not just that it has Halys' Circus on it (we're focusing on her past relationship AGAIN?) but it doesn't feel like the character to me. I wouldn't have been able to tell who it was supposed to be at a glance. Plus the eyes are wrong. Granted not all of these are spot on but still.

That's a werid vacation pic Slim

This raises so many questions. Does Scott think that no one will believe he's having sex unless he sends them a picture after the act? Did he send all the X-Men/his brother this or just Xavier? Who took the photo?!

Cyclops' Love Life Summed up in a Panel

Right after Scott asks Madelyne Pryor if she's really Phoenix/Jean Grey. Later on he'll run out on her and their infant son. Then much later he'll cheat on Jean with Emma Frost. Logan has more class around the ladies than Scotty does.

Preferring the family over Spider-Man

I've come to realize that like Batman I mostly prefer the rest of the family over Spider-Man. This wasn't always the case but after OMD I can't find myself caring about him except in the MC2 verse. I quit Marvel altogether after Spider-Girl was cancelled. I haven't cared for what I've heard about Peter Parker since and just feel indifferent towards him in general. It's funny but for as controversial as the Clone Saga was...I like a lot of the characters/ideas that came from it. Mayday Parker, Ben Reilly and Kaine Parker.

In fact I'm mighty tempted to get the trade to Kaines' run of Scarlet Spider. It looks fun despite the characters' dark. I told myself that I wouldn't get any Marvel comics until Spider-Girl returns (and hopefully gets that huge hanging plot thread tied up since it's been hanging for over a decade!) But this seems like a good read.

DC Collectibles Superboy

I got this on a whim, while I like Superboy he's never been one of my top 20 list.

Marvel Movies and Canon

After watching several movies over the past few weeks a few things hit me.

  1. I prefer all the live action Marvel movies over the live action DC movies.
  2. I like (most of) the Marvel movie canon more than most of Marvels' comic canon.

Captain America The First Avenger and Winter Solider

I saw CAWS twice in the theaters now and recently rewatched the first one. Just some thought concerning the movies.

SPOILERS AHEAD for those that haven't seen them and mention of the comics which may affect the future movies.
