Superman Wonder Woman Issue 1 and 2

One of the more intriguing aspects of DC Comic’s “New 52” relaunch has been the relationship between Superman and Wonder Woman. One of the biggest “missed opportunities” of the DC Universe that started in the 80s was that these two icons never got together. Now we get to see it play out without the bond of “Lois and Clark” in the way. Throwing them together into a new series is an interesting way to explore the relationship, I just hope it is organic and that this title has an effect of the each of their other books. Throwing Doomsday into the mix as a big bad is a fun move. Did you check out Doomsday’s origin as part of “Villain’s Month”?

Superman/Wonder Woman #1
Official Description: Beginning a bold new series that details the relationship between The Man of Steel and the Warrior Princess as rising star writer Charles Soule is joined by fan favorite artist Tony S. Daniel to tell the tale of a romance that will shake the stars themselves. These two super-beings love each other, but not everyone shares their joy. Some fear it, some test it—and some will try to kill for it. Some say love is a battlefield, but where Superman and Wonder Woman are concerned it spells Doomsday!

This issue features an amazing wraparound gatefold cover that opens up to a triptych with Superman and Wonder Woman in the center!

Superman/Wonder Woman #2
Official Description: Whom the gods destroy, first they piss off! Seeking help against Doomsday, Diana turns to her brother Hephaestus for weapons—but a more immediate threat is Apollo and the other gods. They do not approve of Superman as a consort to Diana, and he will have to prove himself in combat!

Issue #1 comes out on October 9th with issue #2 out on November 13, 2013, from DC Comics.

Superman 23.3, Batman Superman 3.1

It is no secret that I hate that DC Comics relaunched with the “New 52” with little regard to fans or the characters. I get wanting to do something new and big to attract a new audience, and it has been successful in that right. But there was a way they could have done it by taking their time and bringing out ongoing series to natural conclusions, instead of just ending everything abruptly with the “Flashpoint” crossover. Sure, some titles like Batman and Green Lantern kept going like nothing had changed, but character like Superman who were altered greatly did not have a satisfying end. And that is a shame. </rant>

That being said, DC Comics has actually been doing some interesting stuff, including this month’s “Forever Evil” and “Villains Month”, where every title has been taken over by a villain, showing us their place in the New 52, or like for Doomsday above, shedding new light on his 52 Origin. H’el is one of the few new Superman villains in recent years to catch my attention. A Krypton villain who is powerful and ruthless- like ow Zod used to be. I just might be intrigued enough to pick up these two titles. Maybe. We’ll see.

Superman #23.3
Official Description: After his last battle with Superman, H’el wakes up on Krypton years before it is destroyed! Can H’el manipulate the Science Counsel, soldiers and countless others including Jor-El, to save the planet? And what does it mean for the birth of Superman if he succeeds?

Batman/Superman #3.1
Official Description: Long before Superman fought the unstoppable monster known as Doomsday, the beast’s reputation for death and destruction haunted The Man of Steel’s home world of Krypton.

Superman #23.3 hit stores last week while Batman/Superman #3.1 comes out on Wednesday September 25th, 2013. Both from DC Comics. Superman is written by Scott Lobdell with art by  Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund. Batman/Superman is written by Greg Pak with art by Brett Booth.

Deadpool has reached the halfway mark with part three of the five part “The good, the bad and the ugly” arc as writer Brian Edmund Posehn sheds new light on the Merc with the Mouth’s origin. Joining the anti-hero are Avengers Captain America and Wolverine, both of whom are tired to Deadpool’s past. All are joined as weird siblings of sorts due to the Super Soldier/Weapon X/Weapon Plus programs. How do you think this will all come together?

X-Factor Issue 262

It is with a heavy heart that I write that X-Factor, one of Marvel’s most consistent, entertaining and best written series, has come to an end. Yesterday, X-Factor #262 hit stores and with it part 6 of “The End of X-Factor”, a very literal end as the series has come to a natural conclusion by longtime writer Peter David. The series set itself part from the X-Universe and the larger Marvel universe by somehow making mutants, time travel, demons, and even Gods somehow more grounded.

The twists and turns kept coming as characters came and left throughout the years, but the core team- all of which were secondary characters, were brought front and center by David and through his writing any one of them would be capable of leading their own series. There is a bittersweet element to the 6 part “The End of X-Factor” arch that closed out the series. Each issue we’ve gotten a look (a coda of sorts) at where each character is following “Hell on Earth”. As much as a love seeing the characters where they are post X-Factor, I’d much rather have seen them all together, at least one last time. Maybe issue 262 will do just that, but I doubt it.

X-Factor #626
Official Description: The end of X-Factor!

Peter David has left X-Factor behind before and returned in the past, maybe he’ll do the same in the future. We can only hope… Maybe Layla Miller could let us know?

X-Men: Battle of the Atom 1

Here we go! X-Men: Battle of the Atom is here. After 15 issues of All-New X-Men with the original team in the present fighting to fix “their future” and the fall out from “X-Men vs Avengers” felt deeply in Uncanny X-Men, and Wolverine’s continued growth along with the future generation of mutants in Wolverine and the X-Men, we have a lot coming to head in the first crossover that will take us through these books to deal with the consequences of time travel. A future team of X-Men will be coming to the present in an effort to set things right” and get the original X-Men to return to their time, but there is much more going on with sentinels (as seen above) and a mystery villain from the future.

Deadpool Kills Deadpool Issue 1

Recently we took a look at an epic battle and tried to figure out who would win in a fight between the Marvel Comic anti-hero Deadpool and the DC Comics villain Deathstroke. People are very split on the results. Now, Marvel is presenting an even harder question; who would win in a fight of Deadpool vs Deadpool… Wait, what?

Deadpool Kills Deadpool is an all new four part limited series from writer Cullen Bunn and artist Salva Espin. It is the final limited series in a trilogy of four parters dubbed “The Deadpool Killogy” that began in “Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe” where he went on a rampage and took out Marvel’s big guns, and continued in “Deadpool Killustrated” where the Merc with a Mouth took out such literary classic characters as Moby Dick, Tom Sawyer, Scrooge, the Three Musketeers, and Sherlock Holmes. Now, Deadpool is jumping across universes to kill all of the versions of himself that are out there. So get ready for Deadpool vs Deadpool vs Deadpool vs Deadpool. Maybe after he clears out these versions of himself he’ll head to the DC Comics universe and take on Deathstroke?

Deadpool Kills Deadpool #1 (of 4)
Official Description: The final act of the Deadpool Killogy begins! Deadpool sets his sites on the ultimate target…himself! Contains over 700% of your daily recommended Deadpool!
