Booster Gold Canon Confusion

When you think about it this has been confusing for the past few years.

I'm not sure I get the complaint

I've been mostly staying away from message boards and the like for awhile. But I recently looked for a few reactions for Rebirth. I came across a complaint I'm not sure I understand.

RHATO #3 variant cover

It's not finished but it makes me so happy. This is the issue I pre-ordered the variant for even though I had no idea what it would be. I knew this was likely to focus on Bizarro but I don't even know where to begin with this one. You know how they say a picture can says a thousand words? Well I want the origin of the story behind this one. How did it get to this point?!

RWBY Cinder Theory

Something that came to me today.


Does Batman get gas?

Another weird thought that occurred to me. Alfred took care of the cooking and car stuff for Bruce growing up. In some canon Bruce even has a car guy or two. When Jason took the bat wheels Bruce made him put them back on. Is that just him giving that job to someone else or does he have limited experience with certain aspects of cars?  I just have this image of Batman driving around until he's out of gas and sending Robin to get it. Then the reaction of the people when they see Robin pay and get the gas while grumbling under their breath.

What's the deal with Bette Kane?

She's either someone that no one takes seriously or forgotten about. Despite being the first Batgirl (or Bat-Girl) and both Kate and Bruce's cousin no one seems to notice her. This is someone that was literally cut open, had her heart stop on her multiple times and STILL had the will to suit up after she recovered.

I'm not saying I want her in DET but it would be nice if she was written well in a bat book. Isn't she in college? Bette hasn't even been on panel with lot of the family. Remember who she was compare to? There's ton of potential being wasted.

Dexter Soy is amazing

I love what he's done throughout RHATO but look at Artemis. She looks like an actual threat. I see this and I think Jason's not going to be able to put up much of a fight next issue. 

That is an Amazon.

How long until Blue & Gold meet?

Something I've been pondering after Blue Beetle.

The Many Parents of Jason Todd

Because he has a lot. This is not counting all the people that had parental bonds with him. Just the ones that are either his birth parents, adopted or by marriage.

Blue Beetle Rebirth #1

I believe both leads have had two previous solo volumes each before this series. I only read a couple of back issues for Ted's BB series although I'm more familiar with him elsewhere. I adored the first Jaime series while I didn't like what I read of the second. This series does take an idea that strangely hasn't been done yet: having Ted and Jaime star in the same series. While they have interacted before (Booster Gold Vol. 2) it hasn't been like this.

Blue Beetle Digital Sale

For Ted Kord and Jaime Reyes. Tomorrow is the big day for the new series starring both! No idea what to expect but if nothing else I'm looking forward to seeing these two together.

Too many equals deaths?

Someone mentioned that there are too many bat characters and every time I hear that phrase it reminds me of these arguments I find online. How you could or should only have a certain number of characters related to a certain brand. Back when DOTF was coming out I remember talk of an actual death to "cut down the family." There was also debate of whether writers usually have this in mind for events. 

I mean it's possible but at the moment I don't see writers listing these characters down and making a check list of the ones their killing within a year. Shouldn't deaths have more meaning than keeping numbers down? I know deaths are considered for certain things like Infinite Crisis but that's a larger scope story.

I might not like a huge bat family since some are ignored (anyone remember Bette Kane?) and the way others are handled. But I dunno, I can ignore most of it to focus on what I enjoy. It sucks when the characters you love are killed and even if I don't care/know all of the newer ones I'd feel for the ones that do.

DC Solicts for November 2016

Much shorter observations than usual.

How much does Ozpin know about Jaune Arc?

Speculation on things shown in RWBY. I haven't read much behind the scenes information so this is mostly analyzing based on what I've seen.


Saturday, August 20, 2016


I think I figured out something from RHATO and I'm freaking out at the potential possibilities. If Lobdell did what I think he did I'm impressed. I feel so stupid for taking so long to connect the dots. I still might be wrong but the amount of clues has me giddy.

Why is Red Hood important to Black Mask?

This is a question I've been pondering since I read RHATO #1 VOL.2. I'm usually bad at guessing comic twists. At least lately. Still let's look at the facts and guess from there.

RWBY Questions and Speculations

Quite a few come up


Thursday, August 18, 2016

Ma Gunn

I'm so glad this character is still around because this is the woman that ran a crime school Batman put Jason in. This was her lesson plan:

This was her teaching her students (Jason seen between the two kids) to say no to smoking.

Although she was fine with kids drinking.

Despite Bruce basically putting Jason in the worst place possible Jason escaped and the rest is history.

RHATO Interviews

I have a few I've gone over now.

Red Hood and the Outlaws Soundtrack

Like all the DC Rebirth titles this series has a soundtrack. I'm very amused that so many Les Miserables songs are on it. I would have put Look Down on the list though.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #1 VOL. 2

I'm unsure how much of previous canon (New 52/DCYOU that is) happened but right now it doesn't matter. I can wait for those answers. There may be more information in interviews but I'm saying that for later.

Where I've been

Work and family stuff kept me busy lately. My dad got his leg surgery and is recovering. I'm helping him out while he's recuperating so we'll see if I can get around to posting.

I guess I could have tried to do another review but I need space when I'm reading and writing as I tend to have a lot of thoughts going on at once. I brought comics to work a couple of times but I could never enjoy them as much. It was either too loud during my break or I felt rushed. Since most of my reviews are done as I'm reading them I often lose my train of thought before I get a chance to write my thoughts.

That doesn't happen as much when I'm in a quiet place though I forgot a few points I wanted to make with the RHATO Rebirth issue. There was just so much to cover. One of which was that Jason did originally freak out over Two Face but not the first time out. The same case though. It was over his dad being murdered by Harvey which is interesting when you consider why he does in the new version. I added that to the review but I doubt I'll out the rest in. I don't think anyone else cares what type of tires the bat wheels are. Anyway I'll try to do the RHATO review when I can. The opening page made me so happy, I was so shocked and pleased to see that character.

Superwoman #1

It didn't turn up on my pre-order reminder list but it still was paid for and downloaded. Since this is a new series it gets read first.

RWBY: The Vault

Some things I've been thinking in regards to the vault and how Ozpin acts.

Is Superwoman delayed?

I got an alert reminding me of my upcoming digital comic purchases and Superwoman wasn't on the list.

DC Universe Classics Artemis (Wonder Woman)

I got this in the mail when RHATO Rebirth came out but I haven't had a chance to talk about it since then. As this was a variant I could only get it without the packaging at a decent price and even that was a struggle. But I figured that if I was going to get it now was the time. Sorry for the pictures, it was the best I could do at the time.

So far everything is okay

My dad is feeling better than he expected. I didn't think it would be too bad but you never know. He has a few things he's still getting done that are mostly check ups and at least one operation. Months ago his foot slipped into a rabbit hole in his garden which messed up his knee. I'll probably be with him when he gets that done. Hopefully there won't be anything to worry about. Thanks for the well wishes guys, I appreciated it !

Might be gone for awhile

I don't usually post things outside comics so I know this is different. I wanted to explain just in case I'm not around for another week or so. At the moment my dad isn't feeling good and we won't know how things will go until after a procedure this week. I don't think it's too bad but it's hard to say at the moment. If I have a chance I'll try to post something Thursday or Friday. I'm just preoccupied right now trying to hope for the best.
