I think Superman Unchained is a pretty good 3rd Superman book. I’m not sure what really makes it different from all the others (Batman is Super-hero, Detective is more crime, Batman and Robin is more Robin, Batman Inc. is the end of a 6 year long story)
but I don’t like what Jim Lee did on a few pages.
Namely the focus and the way some pages are laid out, it’s hard to tell what is going on, like how exactly did Superman stop the satellite? One moment it was falling, and the next it was crashed and everyone was okay?
Then there is this page, with Lois.
Editing the newspaper using holograms.
Because Jim wanted to show tech, but show Lois head on. In a skintight short dress that is FUCKING UGLY.
This page also has some weak-ass newspaper writing “bumping the ads here” and again EDITING THE PAPERS BY STANDING IN FRONT OF A HOLOGRAM AND SLIDING THEM AROUND BECAUSE LOIS CAN’T SAY WHAT NEEDS TO BE SAID CONCISELY.
Ahd she is holding the cup of coffee while using her Kinect/Hologram editing station that doesn’t actually have ht layout of the page.
Because Jim wanted a shot of her head on, looking sexy.
I’m hoping #2 is stronger and that the two of them work better together as a team. And maybe something to justify having this be a book instead of just being Action Comics #22, or Superman #22.
I Want A Hawkeye Game
Featuring mo-cap dogs.
and yeah, that is basically it.
Because Pizza Dog should be in a game.
My Fanfic pitch - True history of Superman
The truth about Krypton
We once ruled the entire universe.
Our empire didn’t fall, we abandoned it.
We abandoned the whole universe to live as hermits on a world of our own design orbiting a star we formed.
Everything was part of the plan.
Even the death of Krypton.
Even your landing on Earth.
Are you prepared for the true history Kal El?
Rebloggable by request- scott versus wanda
Hey Mr. Bendis I’ve got a bone to pick with you. In All New X-Men you have the scene where young Jean Grey realizes that the Scarlet Witch destroyed most of the Mutant Race back in M-Day. And everyone supports the Witch and Wanda says “You’re accusing me of things I did not do consciously.” I have a huge problem with this because right now Scott is an outlaw basically for killing Charles Xavier and fighting the Avengers, something that he did unconsciously.
I have gotten a lot of notes about the subject this week, So let me just say this…
this is obviously a complicated subject about power and responsibility and one we are not done analyzing yet. not by a long shot. many of you keep acting like we have made our final statement as writers on the subject or these characters when I think it’s pretty clear we have not.
Cyclops, in particular, has many chapters in front of him including a very spectacular 50th anniversary of the X-Men franchise called Battle of the atom.
so while it may be frustrating for some of you to not have closure on the subject, trust me when I say that it is a very complicated subject and one that I know many of us are having a lot of fun writing into.
It’s one of the most interesting and horrible (as in shock and scary, not as in crappy) moments in comics. Scott killing Xavier. How rational was he? He was.. but he was also so detached from any sort of human logic.
And the fact is, Scott was right the whole damn time about what the Phoenix could do, and he never asked to be possessed by ultimate power.
And he was keeping it together, but Captain America and Tony Stark CAN’T STAND IT when someone else is making the calls and fixing the world.
And if Xavier and Cyclops could talk to each other, and Charles could come back.. would they undo his death if it meant undoing the rebirth of mutants? I don’t think he would at all.
And you add in the fact that Scott let himself be arrested and thrown in jail and was going to just let himself die? Because what he did was horrible and he deserves death for it, but he doesn’t regret it at the same time?
Oh, but he has to go on living, and leading, because no one else will stand up for Mutants. His brother doesn’t want to be a mutant, Wolverine is a part of the system and thinks appeasement will work.
Yeah. I can see why the views expressed by the characters keep shifting, as there are so many layers and parts of this to work through.
He is a monster and a saint at the same time.
Seriously, why the fuck is there a mandate to make Captain Marvel TOTALLY BADASS AND COOL MAGIC DUDER.
Because the costume is terrible, and the backup feature is just boring and mean.
I really like Captain Marvel as a fun character for kids to enjoy. He is a boy who can magically turn into a grown up and has a fun time being a hero. He doesn’t need anyone to make him edgy or try and deconstruct him.
That was already done in the 1980s, by Alan Moore.
So bring back fun Captain Marvel.
Okay, does anyone at Horizon not notice that Peter is now DRESSING EXACTLY LIKE AN EVIL MAD SCIENTIST?!
I love this comic.
“It’s an antimatter injection system meant to destroy a world.”
“It’s hope. I am very proud of all of you”
This is a dark comic.
