Yeah, uh… don’t ask on that last one. The whole series is screwy as all hell and I think I’m going to wait on the first arc to finish up before reviewing it all.

I also think the ending gag in Authority: The Lost Year is a big hint on who the real villain of Justice League: Generation Lost is, but I’ll talk more about that tomorrow.

  1. I hate Protector in a way I didn’t even think I was capable of.

  2. Love the Hulk panel. I’m not even reading the series and I can understand just how perfect it is.

  3. Are you implying that JL: GL is going to undo the ludicrous Max Lord heel turn? ‘Cause that would be fucking awesome. Also that Avengers panel actually causes me physical pain to read…

  4. Who the heck is that guy in the WWE Heroes comic supposed to be? I don’t recognize the tats.

  5. @MarkPoa: It’s Jericho with sacrificial markings. Yeah.

  6. @david brothers: Oh god, Protector is such a terrible idea. The boring name, the bland costume, the Nega-bands made out of plastic pipes…

  7. Thing is, the whole idea of Noh-Var getting his hands on the Nega Bands and made defender of Earth could have been a great story if they kept his old personality. A guy who will change the world by force if he has to gets his hands on one of the most powerful weapons in the universe?

    Instead, he’s been turned into boring generic alien hero guy. Such a waste. It would have been better if they just left the guy in character limbo.
