Didn't see that one coming.
Couldn't stop laughing when I saw this. It's a Family Guy reference, for, ah, reference. Family Guy had one of their random parodies where Peter Griffin was saved by Spider-Man and Spidey tells him everyone gets one. They did the same thing another time with one of Peter's friends being saved by Spidey and Peter saying everyone gets one. Looks like it's come full circle and is now Spidey referencing Family Guy referencing Spidey.
I'm with Johnny Storm. I'd be begging Spidey to let me be his sidekick just for some wingman benefits to all the kinds of women he has around him 24/7.
Looking forward to seeing Mary Jane again.
Wow, I can't believe they made a cover like this, even as a fake. That's awesome.
I have a Spider-Man/Batman comic (with delicious Mark Bagley art) that says otherwise to this!
Atomic Robo: Shadow From Beyond Time #3
I love how they already know Robo has pissed off the rock before asking him.
It's true. There really is only one Atomic Robo in the world.
Avengers: The Initiative #26
Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps #2
Blume, the giant floating space head with a heart of gold that will terrorize your planet and steal all of its wealth.
Considering how many times the Star Sapphire has possessed Carol Ferris, that's the best respone ever.
Dark Wolverine #76
This doesn't look like nearly as much fun as messing with Bullseye last issue. Maybe stick to antagonizing base power level human super heroes.
Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds #5
This would have been a picture perfect ending to the Superboy-Prime saga. Shame they continued with the next moment.
I made my opinion known in the review of this issue, so I'll let everyone else to judge it themselves.
Remember this scene from the Origins & Omens section of Green Lantern #38?
This was the wall on Mordru's former planet, now home to the Black Witch. Torquemada and Alan Scott can be seen imprisoned in the wall. Raven looks to be at the bottom, too. Looks like that above moment will be picked up on by Johns in Adventure Comics with whatever plans he has for the Black Witch.
Green Lantern #44
Good thing Barry Allen is on the scene to point out those bones are missing a skull. Definitely the new World's Greatest Detective. I see why he's in forensic science.
Johns should write a Martian Manhunter: Rebirth or some such. He clearly has no problem writing the character to his potential. People might actually start caring about him if they see how great he can be.
While a great splash page on its own, a little context helps. Barry Allen was beating the crap out of what he thought was Martian Manhunter for a page or two. Turns out it was telepathy and it was actually Hal. J'onn J'onzz is the man. Er, Martian.
Immortal Weapons #1
Not the greatest of origins, but the rest of Fat Cobra's moments will make up it.
Fat Cobra is my new role model.
Truly the hero of the gods.
I wish I had a repertoire of sex moves...
There is not one thing on this page that is not awesome.
Incredible Hulk #600
When did he get heat vision? Wait, I don't want to know.
Red Hulk absorbed all of the Hulk's gamma radiation. Hulk turned into Bruce Banner again and can "never" be Hulk again. Riggghhhttt. Moving on.
Eve is alive again. And naked. Similar to the X-Force moment below, I find it funny we have so many ways to obscure the nudity, but they have full page spreads of Invincible turning a guy's head into paste and then close ups of the aftermath. Mark spending most of the issue with his femur sticking out of his leg and a mangled hand were also quite disturbing to look at. But no nudity!
Power Girl #3
Fridge jokes. Will they ever not be funny?
So, ya, Boom-Boom is alive again. If they came back in time, why show her being shot in the head in the first place? I hate time travel. Oh, and it's funny how so many were outraged by her shock death and now no one really cares that she's alive again.
Okay, Wolverine just turned that guy into a smear. Aside from this week's Invincible, that's about the most graphic thing in a mainstream comic I think I've seen in a long time. In contrast, they blurred out an ass shot of Rahne in the same issue. Don't want to corrupt the little children's minds or anything.
